Man, the more I hear about this the more I feel it's not for me.
1) Find a bad guy
2) Be Wolverine
Ultimate Wolverine is coming back, sort of!
What makes the Ultimate Universe different to any other alternate universe now? It used to be separate, but now it's just ANOTHER bolt on to 616.
I won't be buying this, even in trade now. This is Loeb levels of Ultimate stupid to me.

As much as I assumed I would have hated the idea of Ultimate Mysterio being one and the same as Ultimate Mysterio, I have to admit that I'm actually pretty eager to see where it goes. Though I think I would have enjoyed it way more if they were separate and could interact. The contrast between the two characters would have made it awesome. Pfff, contrast? lol, if they're the same why are they so different? :P
So this STILL means that since the beginning of the UU there hasn't been an Ultimate Mysterio. Maybe this is just Bendis coming up with a way to Re-Ultimatize Mysterio. This mini could actually be the first appearance of the real Ultimate Mysterio. Though I have to admit I am disappointed. Mysterio was my favorite Spidey villain.

How do we know Bendis isn't just trolling us? Seems like an odd thing to reveal on Twitter. Frankly it's disappointing, since Ultimate Mysterio has been a lot more menacing than his 616 counterpart. Not to mention, wasn't Mysterio dead a while ago? Did he get ressurected before his introduction in 1610 or not?
As long as we get to see Pichelli draw Ultimate Mysterio again, I'll be happy.
So Bendis planted seeds in advance to a story he had no idea he would be asked to write? Guys got skillsCBR: When Miles Morales came in and you guys were also involved in making that character a living, breathing thing on the page and making him a big deal for Marvel fans, did the idea of "We've got this unique character, can we put him with Peter Parker" come to you right away or did it take a while before you thought, "No, maybe this is something we really need to think about doing."
JOE Q: It took a while for the seed to germinate. What happened was we were in a creative meeting and we were wondering what to do for Spider-Man's 50th anniversary. We started to work at Dan Slott's publishing plan and we were like, "Wow. Dan's got a lot of stuff here." In order for us to insert something that would be a really -- that would be worthy of Spider-Man's 50th anniversary, we'd have to derail Dan and say, "Dan, can you start thinking about something else." We didn't want to do that and everybody in the room was sort of kibitzing about and I'm sitting there like the cat that ate the canary because it had hit me that with Miles in the universe and with Peter Parker, maybe this is the place where two characters from two different universes should meet, but I was hesitant to say it because I had been the one that had been pooh-poohing Ultimate/Regular Marvel Universe crossovers for years!
So I said, "Listen guys, I'm going to give everybody in the room exactly what they want. What about this?" and that's when the room sort of lit up and we knew we had something that was worthy of the 50th anniversary. The next step though was of course pitching it to Brian Bendis. I called up Brian and I said, "Brian, what do you think?" He said, "Yes!" So that's how it came to be.

I know that if Ultimate Mystero met 616 Mysterio, the Ultimate one would kill him.
I can't wait for this, it's going to be so good!!!
What are the chances of turning this into a movie? It would be a way to get all the normal spiderman fans in, and also let marvel see what kind of reaction they would get with a ultimate spiderman played by, say, jaden smith? I'm calling it now, if this is a hit then you know there will be talk about movie options. My guess is it would be amazing Spiderman 3. Then they could have Gwen die in amazing spider man 2, introduce ultimate spiderman in 3 and then give ultimate spiderman his own movie after that.
Since ultimate mysterio is 616 mysterio does he know the does he know the identity of 616 spiderman? after all everyone knows who he is in ultimate now.
