I admit I'm out of date on Ultimate Marvel, but why does Ultimate Nick Fury look like the regular Marvel version now?

He's wanted as a traitor, because his president was a coward who was willing to let the world boil.

Holographic disguise.

There was a new Civil war.

Lasted a year our time.

An election.

Steve Rogers won as a write in vote.

Captain America hasn't gotten around to pardoning Fury yet.

That isn't Ultimate Nick Fury. Someone who appears to be 616 Nick was detected. It hasn't been explained yet...it could be as Guy suggests and some kind of holographic disguise, an LMD, or 616 entering the Ultimate 'Verse since the portal from "Spider-Men" is still accessible, and Ultimate Nick has also gone to alternate realities.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I enjoyed Savage Wolverine 1. It wasn't spectacular, but it set up the mystery of the cursed island nicely. My only complaint-- I'm buying the book because I like the character of Amadeus Cho of Incredible Hercules fame, who is to be the third main character of the book behind Wolverine and Shanna. Amadeus, however, didn't appear in the first issue.

I'd have Amadeus join the Future Foundation He's on the same intelligence level as Val, probably smarter.

Isn't it somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20 years have passed in the Marvel Universe since the "beginning" with the Fantastic Four's accident?
I go with 15+. In The Thing #8 by Dan Slott, Ben had a Bar Mitzvah ceremony marking 13 years since he was "reborn" as The Thing. That was just before Civil War. Since then, Captain America was "dead" for about a year of story time (as per Captain America 600, which led into "Reborn"), and we can assume that a year of "Marvel time" has passed since Cap's return.

It just doesn't work like that, how much time has passed will be how much the writer of any specific story wants to have passed - it doesn't make any sense, has never made any sense and will never make any sense.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I think that the further in the past you go, the more nebulous the time frame and continuity. I think they said that the time since "Siege" was one year, and that "Dark Reign" lasted a year... but I'm sure the events of the 70s only took place over a single year or so.

If you think about it, one comic book usually takes place over one day. And the end directly leads into the next issue. So if one issue equals 1-2 days, then a 700 issue comic book is only 1,000 days or so.

With today's decompressed story telling it's closer to 4-6 issues=1 day.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Indestructible Hulk #3 I believe implied I believe that it's been "a year" since the "alien invasion" which I think Maria Hill was inferring was the Skrull invasion. Figuring out Marvels' "sliding timeline" is worse than even making sense of the New 52's five year time line. I remember EJA hated the sliding timeline IIRC!

They never learn their lesson not to refer to specific time passages. Secret Invasion didn't happen "a year ago" it happened "a while back."

Boy is the Captain America book just horrid. Bad art and a poor story are not a good mix. Also the flashbacks of preteen Steve are just doing nothing for me. Being stuck in Dimension Z might have sounded like a good idea, but needs to wrap up in a hurry.

It's dreadful - not sure what has happened to JRJR's art but it's really gone to shit - those kids with giant heads were particularly bad.

His art has been like that since Avengers. It was even worse in AvX.
