So basically it is a way for them to update the comics so that the characters can have more modern and realistic(for a comic) origin stories without people getting pissed over continuity issues?
Wow sounds like something they should do every 10-15 years or so with some characters.
Is the Ultimates X-men stuff good? Unfortunately I haven't gotten around to trying out anything but X-men and the House of M and decimation crossover stuff. I do plan on giving The Ultimates 1 and 2 a shot though.
