February 16, 2011 4:32 pm Other than buying Ultimate Spider-Man solely because it was a number one issue, I never really bought issues from the Ultimate line. I  read Millar's The Ultimates and really dug it. I am friends with a comics shop owner who didn't mind me sitting and reading the issues there in the store.

Reading those issues I little by little realized a couple of things:
1) They were first for readers to jump in and not worry about continuity, now  it has its own continuity like everything else so that advantage is gone.
2) The Ultimates had that mature, cinematic feel to it.  That cinematic look  worked only through Hitch and Millar to me is just in there writing "shock factor" stuff now.
3) Ultimatum was meant to wipe  things clean. Today supporting characters that usually would never get their own series are dead, but the big commercial guys like Spider-Man, Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and The FF are still around. Only big name who stayed dead was Wolverine, but I'm possitive Loeb was gonna bring him back if he actually continued the Ultimate X series.(Besides, wasn't Ultimate Cable actually Wolverine from the future, meaning he had to have lived)
4) The tone of the Ultimate line was nice and normal until The Ultimates came and shook things up with it's real-world feel. Today that unique feel is now part of the normal 616 Marvel U.

To me after Ultimatum, the should have just started over again. Fresh ideas from fresh writers starting from the beginning all over again. The Ultimate 1610-verse  should have closed and nobody should be allowed to come back to it. And what ever would have came after shouldn't even be called "Ultimate" but something else...so there.
January 17, 2011 12:48 am Kevin Smith's producing partner  Scott Mosier wasn't too crazy about producing The Green Hornet  especially since it wasn't their property which brought studio interference every step of its development. So when he walked away from it so did Kevin. I don't think Kevin Smith necessarily wussed out.
January 12, 2011 7:22 pm I agree his designs for the wildcats and x-men were of the times but i love them.

Somewhere in the Icons book he also has concept sketches of modified Batman and Robin costumes that wouldn't fit in the normal DCU but are great for an alternate universe. That Robin design might have influenced the current Robin's costume. Take away the jacket from the new WonderWoman and i think the costume looks good and correct me if i'm wrong but i think he did great redesigns for the early 2000's GreenLantern (kyle), catwoman and the Robin (jason) featured in Hush.

He sometimes teases that he wants to complete the trinity and do a year long WonderWoman run as well as well as how he would love to work with Geoff Johns on a JLA or Teen Titans but i ain't holding my breath.

 And is anyone else downloading the video show and getting audio but a black picture?
