Official Press Release

"Everything is connected!" The story that delves into the intricacies and unknown secrets of the Ultimate Universe is here. Superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis nurtures the seeds planted at the Universe's very inception and sheds light on the secrets that will shake the universe to it's core in Ultimate Origins #1 (of 5). Complimented by the stunning art from Butch Guice, readers will be on the edge of their seats and wanting more as information regarding the Super Soldier and Weapon X programs are unveiled.

The reviews are in and everyone is clamoring about this new series!

Brian Joel of IGN.com exclaims, "Ultimate Origins is shaping up to be a damn good time"

Dave Wallace of Comicsbulletin.com says "Guice's realistic style that has worked so well in the pages of Captain America recently is an equally smooth fit for Marvel's Ultimate Universe, grounding the action in a real-world setting and providing a fairly high level of realistic detail without rejecting the more exaggerated qualities of comic book art for the most dynamic sequences."

ComicBookResources.com writer James Hunt says, "Ultimate Origins promises to be a rare thing -- a completely self-contained story that'll have major ramifications."

Continuing to amaze and astound readers, the team of Bendis and Guice unveil the secret history of the Ultimate Universe in this action-packed limited series! How is it all connected? Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming issues of Ultimate Origins, which pave the way for this fall's massive Ultimatum!
