Marvel’s ULTIMATE COMICS: ‘Divided We Fall’

April 17th, 2012 by Jay Comments

Announced Sunday during Marvel’s Ultimate Comics panel at the C2E2 convention in Chicago, “Divided We Fall,” the first Ultimate Comics line-wide event following last year’s relaunch, starts in July’s Ultimate Comics Ultimates #13 and Ultimate Comics X-Men #14, continuing into August’s Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #13 and through September.

Focusing on three central characters — Kitty Pryde (Ultimate X-Men), Captain America (The Ultimates) and Miles Morales (Ultimate Spider-Man) — “Divided We Fall” is being written by Brian Wood (Ultimate Comics X-Men), Sam Humphries (Ultimate Comics Ultimates) and Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Comics Spider-Man).

It promises to see the rise of a new villain who plunges the Ultimate Universe into chaos, as The Ultimates are pitted against S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel stresses that “Divided We Fall” isn’t a typical crossover, but rather a concurrent event that affects each of the Ultimate Comics line’s three books in different ways, with Marvel statting that Cap will make a fateful decision during the course of the story – one that has never been done in a superhero comic!

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
