That didn't happen. Everything that happened under the old Ultimate
(So-and-so) banner still happened under the new Ultimate Comics
banner. I used the term "relaunch," and specifically with the quotation marks, because that's the term that I've seen used in summaries and reviews. My understanding is that no continuity was wiped away. It was an imprint relaunch, not a universe / continuity relaunch.
