Bendis Doesn't Deny Or Confirm Death Of The Ultimate Universe: Just Wants To Tell A F'n Story

With Galactus recently appearing in the Ultimate Universe in Josh Fialkov and Leonard Kirk's The Hunger, as well as the news that the Ultimate titles in November are getting replaced by the Cataclysm event, in addition to Ult. Spider-Man Miles Morales heading to the 616 U., that doesn't necessarily mean that Marvel is doing away with it all.

Does it?

14-year-veteran-writer on the Ultimate comics, Brian Michael Bendis, took to his Tumblr to responds to a fan's question about ending the Ultimate Universe.

Please allow me to not comment on unsubstantiated rumors and let us tell our story. and please believe me when I tell you that I have been working on the ultimate universe for 14 years. as important as it is to some of you it is doubly doubly doubly important to me. if not more so. and I promise you that I will not let you down and I will tell the story worth telling.

can you imagine if there were someone at your job who just decided it was their job to spoil everything that you do?   and if they can’t spoil it they just make something up.

that is what it’s like to try to tell a decent story for this generation of mainstream comic book creators.  see, if we deny the rumor, we give them hits, which is all they want, and if we don’t deny it, we make it true and give them hits. which is all they want.

so no matter what I do, I lose. and no matter what I do they win.

i just want to tell a fucking story without this barnacle on my ass.  and, yes, i know, just mentioning them causes them to start masturbating.  I know I’m not helping myself but i just want to be clear where i stand with this.

what’s funny to me is that no matter how many times these stupid websites are wrong, and they are wrong about half the time, people still believe what they read. 

Does that mean it's sticking around?
