I know I’m not the primary target for this series. And frankly, this was a much better issue all around with Wolverine getting some decent stage time.

But I still think that it is time for Marvel to establish a finite set of worlds for their stories to take place in such as…

-Marvel 616: The main universe.
-Ultimate: The Ultimate universe.
-Zombies: The Marvel Zombies universe.
-Marvel Adventures: Young readers Marvel universe.
-Future: The various future timelines that will never come to be.
-What If: One-shot Marvel universes of alternate timelines.

From Marvel (Preview): “The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! Get ready to cry “Wolverine!” at the top of your lungs, ’cause Avengers Tower is about to go all “Red Dawn” when the Crimson Dynamo invades! But who is the super-spy on the armored villain’s trail…and can she be trusted?” On sale Feb 20, 2008.

  1. I agree. I like the Marvel Adventures books (several of them far outshine the last few years of total misery that 616 has become — I loathe much of the post-Disassembled MU) very much overall but wish they were set in one consistent world. Heck, it could be a lighter, more fun rebirth of the MU with its own continuity, sort of an updated version of the classic comics-code-approved MU we had for decades, which could go in its own direction…

  2. Wouldn’t even have to come up with new origins for the characters, could just use some of the ones they’ve updated for 616 over the decades. Sounds a brilliant idea to me.
