The Ultimates are a team put together to find and fix omniversal problems likely to affect the safety of Earth and the larger universe. A cosmic team for cosmic threats. “The impossible is where they start.” Although, actually, they’ll be starting with the most well-known cosmic threat of all — Galactus.
AE: It’s true that I’m a huge fan of Adam, and I’m glad of the chance to put a little more focus on him and chronicle his adventures for a little longer. [Editor] Tom [Brevoort]‘s a fan of his too, I think — certainly, when we were kicking around ideas for the roster, he was part of it from the start.
Adam’s the same character he was in Mighty Avengers, although he’s got a new costume and he’s leaning a little more into super-scientist mode. He’s still one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Universe, and this is going to be a book where he’ll finally get to cut loose on the page. He can’t be distracted by a larger threat the way he was in Mighty Avengers — these are the largest threats.
