On hand at SDCC to speak about this upcoming five part series were Bendis and Bagley. ”This is what we think is one of the most eventful chapters in the Ultimate Universe since its creation,” said Bendis who spoke to Newsarama. “The Ultimate Universe is in real jeopardy. There’s going to be fallout. It’s very exciting, and hopefully a very emotional story, like Spider-Men was. And something for people who haven’t been following every damn thing we do. For people who have followed everything? Huge payoff.” “I know people are really worried about the fallout and what that means for the Ultimate Universe, and they should be. It’s a pretty big deal.”
So what exactly does all of this mean for the Ultimate Universe? Still playing coy, Bendis simply teased that Cataclysm will have a “gigantic epilogue” in which the writer compared to Marvel’s past event Civil War.
Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand is set to hit shelves in November.
