Hi Scans Daily,

I've been a fan of this community for a while. I found alot of great comics from scans here so I decided to join in on the fun.



Not to shill myself too much but I maintain a nerd-blog and and webcomic at www.theepicbeyond.com. I probably will put up some images of my comic in the future. Anyway, I recently wrote an article what I think the Avengers 2 should involve and it made me think of Ultimate Fantastic 4 #52. This was back before the Ultimate Universe went to hell and reinvented itself. I liked this issue. It showed us Ultimate Thanos, and what happened when he got the cosmic cube. I thought this would fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe really well.








Poor Thor. With shit getting considerably real, Thanos defeats the rest of the Ultimates reshapes the Earth in his image and gives the following speech:
"I am not opposed to heroism. On the contrary. I honor it. But the greatest courage is acceptance of what must be. Resignation in the face of a destiny that cannot be fought or deflected or defied. This is the gospel that you must preach, now. A gospel of subservience and order. Teach the people of this world and later those of other worlds that Thanos is a kind shepherd to those who obey him. While for his enemies, life will be a burden they can neither endure --nor escape.



It was one hell of a cliff hanger. I can only imagine how epic it would be to see in a live action film. This is my first post, so if I forgot anything or violated any rules let me know and I'll fix it.

P.S.: If anyone wants to check out the article this issue inspired its here. http://theepicbeyond.com/blog/2012/09/early-thoughts-on-avengers-2/

Hi! You did the image thing right, except you've gotta put it under a cut. I think the goes between your images so it's hidden.

The art is horrible, but I'm quite fond of everything else, I like the implication that Thor was much stronger when humans genuinely worshipped him and his people, well done on your first post mate!

Welcome, it's a pretty nice community :D

I thought that bit was really nice too. I mean I get that in the Marvel U the gods don't work one the basis of the Pratchett-style "powered by believe" model, but I think the idea of it as a supplement to their powers works well, and it explains pretty nicely how losing followers didn't get rid of Thor but it was enough to make him go from being a literal god to being just superhuman.

Depends on the writer

In the main Marvel U It depends on the writer - Thor once had to go on a quest because not enough people believed in the Asgardians and he had to ask other Gods to lend them some power (or something like that).

That is some 90s ass art. And I can't say I care for that Thanos redesign, it's painfully generic.
I've never particularly gone in for these type of stories were a villain sweeps in, takes over the world and is then defeated, since it requires you to pretty much write off all the other heroes so that the stars of the book can be the only ones around to save the day, and I think it really doesn't fit in with the Ultimate Universes paradigm of things actually mattering and having consequences. But I do really like that when Thanos palette swapped everyone's costumes he also took the time to replace the A on Captain America's head with a T. That's the difference between a villain and supervillain.

I'm going to take issue with your statement of "before the Ultimate Universe went to hell" simply because this was printed in 2008 and Loeb got his damn hands on the Ultimate Universe in 2007.

Is this before or after Final Crisis? Because even if it's before, Thanos is still very Darkseidish here.
