Is anyone else digging the real-time gimmick?

    It's pretty cool but I do have to wonder whether it will cause issues down the line. Already saw some people complaining about the pacing of Spider-Man feeling off if each issue is meant to be a month. Either way the ominous countdown at the end of each issue is great.

    I like it but it needs to be something future writers actually commit to if this going to be a long term thing.

      He's talking about the Sun King but Reed didn't mess with the Ultimate Universe timeline until like the 1960s. The revolution happened, they cut their heads off, he's next

    Yeah I'm digging it. The books it's helped the most seems to be Black Panther cuz I'm used to Hills work being decompressed as shit but he seems to be making a good pace now.
    Curious if it keeps going after we hit 18 months since Campa said he has plans past that

    Are Black Panther and X-Men real time? I think they said something about T'challa being gone for months in Black Panther but I'm also pretty sure I remember X-Men sort of having cliffhangers being immediately followed up on and more normal floating time.

    Anyway I like it, I wonder if it'll stick around after the 18 months

        Hickman didn't write this. I get that he has fans on Cinemaphile, but this wasn't a good comic.

          I quite like the use of this world to examine the issues with continuity that Marvel characters have been burdened with for years. Peter's family life, Hank's mistakes. It's all getting a thorough examination it feels like.

              I feel like thats the point, no? It shouldn't define Hank Pym anymore than Superman calling Lois fat in the 40s defines him.

                That's not the point, the point is 616 Hank is an abusive piece of shit and 6160 would NEVER do that!

                In a literal reading of the book perhaps, but what I believe it means in a more metaphorical sense is that the idea of "Hank Pym" removed from the continuity of 616 can not be defined by that character's mistakes.

                It's not subtle at all, that's the issue.

                Then why is he? If they had used 1610 Hank then this would work perfectly, instead they're throwing 616 Hank under the bus.

                Because he is damned by Continuity. Other writers have expanded on this and made him worse. To undo it now would undo his entire character in 616.

      Probably just a dickhead surgeon if I had to wager. Maybe a below average one even, if Maker gave him brain damage like Hank.

          Stop him from getting in a car accident or capture him while he learns about magic.

            If he is captured, then he is probably a magician already. Also, I never knew Strange's middle name was Vincent

              He could be a sorcerer, but perhaps not a sorcerer supreme level magic user. Maybe this is a first or second year Stephen.

    I still wonder where the actual Doom is. Latveria is somehow moved further East, and the actual Victor Von Doom is nowhere. Not a mention, not a death or a capture, literally nothing. I think this is just too weird.

    For me, I think UBP is the weakest of the line since there's really nothing to set it so apart from the 616 counterpart.
    In USM Peter's a father with a family who had responsibility but no power and now just got the other half.
    In UXM it's Japanese teens getting superpowers in some spooky horror setting.
    In Ultimates it's Tony and his team trying to give the world superheroes again before the Maker comes back.
    All of these are interesting premises compared to something that could just be done in 616 with UBP's plot of "Khonshu and Ra are invading Wakanda". There's nothing new to it to set it apart.

      Honestly wish they went harder with the Moon Knight shit in UBP maybe have him be a servant of Khonshu instead of Baast...also God lord give him a better costume the exposed mouth looks so ass
