They look like Angel, Human Torch, Wolverine, and Falcon.Does Johnny Storm have a daughter I wonder? It is quite possible. :lol:

:x-men: Well I am a HUGE Wolverine fan BUT I definitely agree that he has been marketed way too much (hence the completely crappy movie that was no where close to his history) To be honest, I never really liked the ultimate series but it did always keep me curious to see what they would do with the characters. Unfortunately this has leaked into the Marvel movies but whatever. Ultimately (no pun intended) I think it will be interesting to see what they do here after all of the drama in the Ultimate U.

I think Ultimate X is a group of cloned, experimental mutants that escaped from some facility....What it looks like is that Loeb and Adams are trying to re-imagine the X-Men when they are first grouped, like in 616, w/ Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Angel, Iceman, and Beast when they are high school age. I see an "Angel"-like character w/ "Beast"-like qualities, the "Psychic" girl w/ dark Black hair instead of the vibrant "Phoenix" red, and the character engulfed in flame w/ flame powers rather than encased in ice and throwing snowballs. Now the "new" Wolvie....i dunno, maybe Loeb thinks he woulda been a better leader than Cyke was....and to me, it looks like he has bone claws...Looks like Loeb has destroyed this universe and re-built it in his own image, if you ask me...I don't normally follow the Ultimate universe, but I might browse thru this while I shop.

[quote@adamcomic has there been an ultimate deadpool?[/quote] Yes, he was a villain in Ultimate Spider-man during an X-Men crossover arc.

How about this:Ultimate X is another super soldier experiment. He's a genetic blend of Wolverine and Steve Rogers. BUT he's young, on the run, and trying to live a normal life in high school so we also see plenty of Peter Parker style drama.Either way, it's written by Loeb so I won't be reading it.

I think the Wolverine thing is to get people hyped and talking. At the end he could just take off the claws and be someone else entirely, same with the girl.

I certainly hope it's Ultimate Mimic. It would be a far better and less ham handed reveal than for him to be "rear end opening" pull son of Sabertooth or another Wolverine son/clone.Hell currently any idiotic reason could still be possible. Like that he is a teenage clone of Charles Xavier who has his secondary (Banshee induced) mutation instead of the telepathy.Too bad Ultimate Marrow is dead or else i would wish that it's Mimic using her power to immitate Wolverine's claws.So there are multiple persons on the cover?Okay the girl allready showed up in a art preview from Art Adams.In it she was shown suddently seeing the dead bodies of all mutants killed during Ultimatum after holding Cyclops visor (if you looked closely you can see it in her closed hand).So she is someone who can see the dead or simliar stuff. Not necessary a mutant though, from what we were told about the title. The halo around her face seems to hint psychic powers though.... Wait a second. That's Jean Grey! She has her hair grown long and dyed black, in order to be less recognisable and to get away from her past as an X-men, but she kept Scotts visor and holding it again she get's flashbacks of the killed mutants.Hmm, there are three more persons on the cover.One seems to wear a monk robe and has wings. So maybe that is ultimate Mimic.Another one seems to be infront of the winged figure. But the only clear clear part is a leg (to much away from the winged figure to be part of him/her).The last person seems to be someone who can fly and leaves behind a long flame treck. So it could be Ultimate Firestar again, since she currently doesn't shows up in Ultimate Spiderman (since he allready has Jonny Storm there).In the end though it's Loeb so it will still be narmy or otherwise horrible anyway.

my bet is on the grandson to wolverine...the chick not too sure...shes psylocke like but thats too easy and why bring her back from the deadim more focused on the two shadows in the back, one looks like, firestar i believe from the ult spidey comics and someone linked to the phoenix. to say its jean would be way to easy and not the ult way of doing thingsi just know i want to see iceman again :iceman: :nightcrawler:

[quote@spmurphy98 I am not sure who he is going to be but I do find it interesting that in the background is the dark phoneix. Is this the child of Jean Grey hmmmmm.[/quote] If it is I notice he has claws instead of any sort of optics or handblast type things...

I'm hoping it's Mimic. A new spin on Mimic would be far more refreshing than yet another Wolverine spin-off...

blond wolvie is wolverine healed from the leftovers from Ultimatum. Other characters are angel/mimic and girl flamer from ult. spidey liz i think. If I am wrong, I'll buy the book. :cap: :x23:

If that chick was the ultimate X character and Mimic really was the dude with blond hair. :carnage: :venom:

What happenend to the lab ran by Dr. Cornelius? I believe the issue was ultimate x-men #60. Sabretooth captured a chunk of wolverine's flesh from the wolverine/storm vs lady deathstrike battle.Maybe a clone?

[quote@psionic_freeze Who's the chick in the picture that they've just released?[/quote] it looks a little like psylocke, or maybe the black haired lady that was in the HellFire club that was killed in the 1980's.edit:This might be a stupid question, but is this meant to be a character from ultimates universe?

Logan was said to be the only test subject that survived the adamantium bonding process because of his healing factor which would mean the previous 9 test subjects died. And what are the odds they would find another mutant with claws and a healing factor like logans? That's like a character dying then being brought back from the dead and that just wouldn't make sense now would it?!?

Either way , no matter who it is (Seeing as the story of Wolverine is he was experiment number..... 10 hence weapon X, so there is no limit to how many versions they can come up with between the time period he was made and appeared in incredible hulk comic and now presently years later) atleast they gave him a hoody from Old Navy to give him street cred......but then again lunging forward makes a hood fall back with wind resistance.....hmmm overthinking it. :dead:

Probably too straight forward; I'm not going to guess Angel with Adamantium claws.

It's Red Wolverine. Get it? *tumbleweed*Notice the Phoenix shadow in the background? (Which is odd, since fire would create the absence of shadow, but hey, who needs physics in comics anyhow.) Maybe Jean brings back Logan as a blonde.

[quote@raydanielson5 i dont like all the wolverine spin offs its like their is always some sort o wolverine type being being released[/quote] Agreed man. We get it, Wolverine sells well. Try not to beat us to death with him.

My vote is Mimic. i think they're going in the direction of x-men evolution. it'll be interesting to see what they do..... :cyclops:

My vote is Mimic. It's too bad they're going with a Wolverine theme off the bat. Wolverine is a beaten, dead horse, over-exposed and over-used. Let him rest for awhile. He's not the ONLY X-Man.

Wow, another story about someone based on Wolverie. [i] How original![/i] Seriously, what the hell is going on? Ugh...

In the Ultimate Universe, Wolverine is Sabertooths father, so this could be his grandson?
