    Default Favorite Memorable Moments in the UU - No Hating

    Oh great not another favorite thing about the UU thread amiright?

    Seriously though. This is purely a nostalgia thread devoted to the best times of the UU in whatever your opinion is of it whether it be Millar-Fialcov or anybody. As we don't know whether the Ultimate Universe is ending or not its still nice to reflect upon a universe that has been around for over a decade and if it is ending then at least we can remember the best of times. So one request please no hating in this thread.

    So to start out with (thought it isn't a exact moment) obviously for me it was Ultimates Vol 1 by Mark Millar. For others it was Ultimate X-men or Spider-man or the FF but for me it was the Ultimates. As someone who really wasn't into comics before reading the Ultimates I really had a special time with this comic. Everything was real and modern but it was also the art and the fact that it felt like watching a movie. It's one of the best writing I have seen and had some of my favorite moments, however, it's memorable to me because it started out my interest in broader areas of comics and while not much has compared to it so far (a testament to its great writing and at) though Hickman's Ultimates is close, I am really glad I had the chance to read it in my lifetime.

    I was thinking of making this thread the other day, but then I remembered I'm really lazy.



    When Wolverine watched Wanda and Pietro have sex in the Savage Land.

    When Spider-Man swung into Wilson's window.

    Finding out who is the villiain in Ultimate Doomsday.

    Hickman's time on The Ultimates was one of the most exciting comicbook runs I have ever experienced. Just flicking through the pages of his and Ribic's books just now.. I'm practically weeping over the absolute excellence of it all. And then suddenly I become heartbroken by the dreaded thought of "what could have been". I think the potential of Hickman's Ultimates run will always haunt me for as long as I read comics. I'm serious. I need to see a doctor about this. D:

    Zap's Secret Dark Comic Book Confession:

    As many of you know, I've long said that this scene led into an off-panel consummation of MJ and Peter's epic love, and that therefore Peter didn't die a virgin.

    I don't actually believe that. It's wishful thinking on my part. What I actually believe, despite many of my posts saying the contrary, is that MJ and Peter sat and talked for a long, long time. I think that's beautiful. These two were best friends before falling in love, and best friends while in love. This is a beautifully-written moment built on years of stories and endless ups and downs in their relationship. These two know each other so well, and this page leaves so much to the imagination about what was said, and Lafuente does an excellent job with body language and facial expressions...

    It's such a tender, raw, believable, quietly climactic moment. These two were meant to be together, and their relationship survived until one of them died.

    God, I love this page.
