"Basically, it’s the four corners of the original Ultimate Universe – the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, the Ultimates and Spider-Man- but as they’ve altered over the years to something new and fresh and something people aren’t used to seeing in the regular Marvel Universe."

"It’s funny. Years and years ago, there was a magazine about Frank Miller’s Daredevil, where he did one issue that was the Hulk vs. Daredevil on the cover. He went to his editor and said, “I’m going to do Hulk vs. Daredevil,” and the editor said, “All right, what happens in panel 2?” That’s kind of what I’m dealing with here."

"To everyone’s surprise and delight, Miles Morales, the relatively new Spider-Man in the Ultimate Universe who made headlines as the first mixed race African American Spider-Man, is going to have a baptism of fire by stepping up to the plate and being the best version of Spider-Man he’s even come close to being. He’ll be working a lot with the Ultimates and a lot of the younger heroes that we’ve introduced recently, like a very young version of Cloak and Dagger, Bombshell, Spider-Woman – all these characters will be taking center stage. But, very, very important, the Holy Trinity of Marvel – Thor, Iron Man and Captain America – and Sue Storm, the Human Torch, the Thing will be coming together to fight this as well as the return of the Ultimate X-Men, who have some very specific power sets. Even though they’ve been off kind of imprisoned in their own island of trying to deal with the harsh realities of mutanthood in the Ultimate Universe, they’ll be stepping forward; heavy hitters like Kitty Pryde and Jean Grey, who will actually be able to help stop this madness before it’s too late."

"He needs to feed, and really the only thing keeping him from eating the normal Marvel Universe Earth is Reed Richards, who has used a whole bag of tricks to keep him away from Earth all these years. So, realizing that he can take the Earth without worrying about Reed Richards, he does so. What you’re going to see from the very first issue is not only a reunion between me and Mark Bagley – we were the first people to draw and write the Ultimate Universe – but we’re going to see Galactus really go at it while the Ultimates try to figure a way to take him out before he eats the planet without really knowing what he is or where he came from.

That sets up a whole different set of problems, because they figure out he’s Galactus, but they can’t just send him back where he came from; he’s just going to go eat something else, and that’s not very heroic. They literally can’t kill him. They don’t know how, they don’t have the firepower and they can’t figure out how without killing themselves. So, it’s a real conundrum, and it very well may be the beginning of the end of the Ultimate Universe."

In some ways the 'Doctor Octopus' arc could be viewed as an example of Bendis's 'decompressed' storytelling given that it ran for seven issues, Spidey and Ock don't even meet until four issues in and the story is a bit cluttered with subplots involving Justin Hammer and Kraven. Still, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

I'm going to try and present to you Bendis's 'Ultimate Spider-Man'. In my opinion I think USM is one of the best Spider-Man series out there and contains some of Bendis's best writing to date. I read a few old issues on Comixology recently and they were still enjoyable as when I first read them as a teen. I do think the series started to sag as it went on but I think Bendis deserves credit for going as far as he did. A lot of people dismissed USM as a gimmick and scoffed at the idea that USM would even reach #50. Instead Bendis and Bagley ended up breaking the record for the longest consecutive writer/artist team at Marvel.

Right off the bat, I have no idea how far I will go with this. I find it very unlikely that I'll go all the way to #200 and I'd be surprised if I made it to #100. I think it will depend on the reactions this receives and my schedule.

"Ha, yeah. Laura’s new attitude is driving Warren insane. There’s a lot more to that story than it seems. Warren isn’t just being overprotective. He’s dealing with some stuff. I can’t really say what yet, but stay tuned. Warren and Laura are a complicated couple."

AND...

"We’ll be tackling Idie’s faith head on. For a long time, Idie’s Catholicism was a constant source of self-loathing. She genuinely believed mutants to be God forsaken. It took a long time for Idie to even accept herself as an X-Man and hero. After all, mutants are evil. But at this point, she’s seen a lot of evidence to the contrary. She knows better." - Dennis Hopeless

"Laura is completely different than she was in Arena. She’s made a conscious decision to change. X-23 is her past. Wolverine is her future. She’s trying to let go of her deep dark baggage so that she can fully embrace this new role. It doesn’t come naturally, and her devil-may-care enthusiasm seems a little odd at times, but I think Laura is enjoying the freedom.

She’s not a slave to her programming anymore. She doesn’t have to calculate every move. She can just dive headfirst into the flames and see what happens.

"Probably the most visually fun is Iron Mariner -- why is he never in the same room as Jako Krangsen, Stark Enterprises' new Atlantean chief scientist? Then there's Collapsar, size-changing space cop, whose mastery of Pym Particles makes him a credit to the Nova Corps, and Marlene Brashear, aka Marvel Woman, and Ted Altman, aka King Hulk. (So he decided to double down on the 'Hulk' thing. So sue him.)

"Of course, it's not all fun and games -- we'll also be meeting Avengers 20XX's most diabolical enemy--a familiar face who might just end reality as we know it. Hope everyone has their crying towels ready -- this one's a tragedy XX years in the making, true believer!"

"Laura is obviously very tight with Warren and is slowly bonding with her other teammates. We'll be building those other relationships as the series progresses. Interesting things are ahead for Laura. There's more to life than Warren Worthington." - Dennis Hopeless
