....he said they were going to 'Ultimatize' the MU Proper 'as much as possible.' Whatever that means.

So that doesn't mean they're going to get rid of the Ultimates line by any means. Obviously, why cut your profits in half?

I don't think we should, by the way, be ticking these posts 'spoilers,' siunce by doing so we may only be spreading gossip. But I'm playing it safe until we know whether we should or not.

Well I realize that, but I barely see a difference between the two. If we have 5 or 6 titles or so (maybe even 7 if you count Mary Jane - isn't that set in high school?) all offering the exact same limited alternative, what is the point in keeping them all going? What will the Ultimate Universe actually have to offer Spider-Man readers if 616 Spidey is similarly reset? And some people responding have said things like, the Ultimate Universe was always going to take over 616 if it proved popular, or some such, so that again is why I am equating "ultimatizing" with "folding the universes into each other." I know there's a difference, but it's a small one to me, personally. 616 will just be an Ultimate U take 2. In some ways, couldn't that mean that Ultimate Spidey might end up with more continuity concerns than 616 Spidey, having a few years' head start? And if high school Pete is so popular, why NOT just have more Ultimate-branded Spidey books? And how does this "ultimatizing" affect something like New Avengers, where Spidey is such a big money draw?

And like I and others have said, going to high school would not even synch up with the movies, so that's no excuse. I'm sorry, I just don't see it. It all adds up to being too far-fetched for me.

[And no, I don't consider these spoilers, but the tag has just been in the titles of posts I'm responding to and I'm not bothering to delete it - why buck the trend?]
