So a couple of weeks ago I got the Collectorz daabase programe to catalogue all my comics. I have about 40 boxes so it has taken me a while to get it all done. Still working through it all. Yesterday I came across some Prime comics. Hadn't seen them in ages but it made me remember the Ultraverse. It lead me to go on Youtube and look up the cartoon. All though very 90's, it wasn't that bad. It made me wonder if Marvel would ever bring back the Ultraverse. I mean, they bought all these characters, why not make some money off of them? And in this day and age of the New 52 and other revamps/relaunches, it seems to be a good time to do so. Then I started finding article after article like this: www.bleedingcool.com/2012/05/22/steve-englehart-how-5-doomed-the-ultraverse/
The essence of every article is that the Ultraverse creators had an ironclad contract that stated that Marvel would have to pay them a % for using the characters. In any other media that would reasonable. In comics however, it seemse publishers don't want to pay creators what the are reasonably due. I know under Ron Perelman Marvel was cut throat and well, pretty terrible. Putting out a lot of crappy books. Writers and artists fired or leaving all over. But today is a better situation.
So, what do you think? Should Marvel bring back the Ultraverse characters? What do you think is keeping them from doing so? Could they do it now?
