Thanos' storyline in the UU is complete, it's done, it's a completely circular story and it's perfect that way. I really don't want anyone to ruin that.
Also can I point out how unoriginal it feels to have hints of Thanos as a villain right after his reveal at the end of a certain movie? Really?
It's gotten to the point where Ultimates is the last comic I read from my monthly pile, when it used to be the first. (Oddly enough now Hickman's Avengers is first, it's amazing, and makes me sad he left Ultimates).
I'm closer to dropping Ultimates now than ever.
"Predictable? If there were any more plot twists going on, we'd need M. Night Shyamalan to randomly appear at the end saying 'What a twist' before vanishing". - Kurolegacy on Ult X-Men #8.
I'm excited to see what Humphries will do with an Infinity Gauntlet, and the reasoning for 4 gems vs the standard 6.
I have a few questions that I can't answer myself due to being at work that maybe some of you fellas/ladies know off the top of your head.
1. Did Thanos die at the end of his story or was he just banished back to his home planet?
2. Thanos supposedly died and came back to life (and was more powerful each time) repeatedly so do we need to include him more when talking about how "dead means dead" isn't real in the UU?
1) Find a bad guy
2) Be Wolverine
Ultimate Wolverine is coming back, sort of!
I put him with Thor... it's established in his backstory that he does this.2. Thanos supposedly died and came back to life (and was more powerful each time) repeatedly so do we need to include him more when talking about how "dead means dead" isn't real in the UU?
The more we talk about Thanos, the more I wish that Pasqual Ferry would come back and draw this arc of the Ultimates. Few things could make me happier.
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
The combine power of the Soul and Reality Gem can bring people back from the dead right?
Of course it's a CBR thread, so that means that one mention of Thanos makes him already part of this story.
I would also love to see the day when somebody is required to have an actual proof, like a quote from the writer, to go along with "it's obvious that Humphries really doesn't care about the Ultimate line", or suffer the consequences. Sadly though I don't believe the world will turn for the better.
As for the whole Infinity thing, I'm so glad they're doing an Infinity story, but at the same time, PLEASE have someone else write it. I've been looking forward to the eventual Ultimate Infinity storyline since I started reading Ultimate. I wonder if the Gauntlet will work differently in this universe. I mean, there's "dead means dead" and then there's this weapon that allows you to do anything like bring people back to life.

Damn it, guess Ultimates will be off my pull list for much longer. Humphries run on the title has been lackluster, dropped it after the second issue, and haven't heard good things since.
