There are reasons to read the Ultimates. Ultimate Spider-man is still being written by Bendis and is awesome, plus Ultimate Avengers is being written by Mark Millar, who wrote the first two Ultimates series which were pretty damn good too. It was really only Jeph Loeb that ruined the thing. That and FF & X-men being average books.

But with regards to this Wolverine, why couldn't they just let him die? Its not like they don't have spares.

It's a joke. If this were real it would have been announced at either the San Diego or Chicago conventions, and it would be in the November Previews catalog.

While not impossible, as Meyer is a fan of the X-Men, this simply isn't real. I'm sitting on Marvel's November solicitations, and this isn't in there.

More than that, this is something Marvel would have made a huge deal out of at one of the conventions. But let's say the timing didn't work out and they couldn't reveal this news at SDCC or CCC, I'd be sitting on an embargoed press release, which I'm not.

That said, I hope I'm wrong! Sales on any comic written by her would be off the scale, which is great for the business.

They're good for the business in a bad way. They're good for the business like Liefeld was good for the business. Total flash over substance. The woman is an awful, awful writer, and that's the last thing Ultimate Comics needs, even if she's popular.

EDIT: I'm sorry that I'm not excited about this, but I just can't see a good reason for publishing poorly written comics by someone who's only getting the chance because it will sell. It's everything that's wrong with the business.

The point is, think of the audience she would bring with her. This is a hugely popular mainstream author coming to comics. She would bring millions of people with her. If even a fraction of those people go on to read other comics, then it was worth it.

That said, there's nothing to worry about as this isn't real.

All three of these characters are popular in Batman comics and cartoons, and now they have their own comic book series called Gotham City Sirens. But what you may not know is that they also have their own cartoon. Did you ever wonder what their childhoods were like? Did you always think they were villainous, unlike Batman and Robin?

Well now you know the truth, they were once:
