Trivia / The Ultimates

  • Schedule Slip: Four storylines were illustrated by Bryan Hitch (Ultimates, Ultimates 2), Joe Madureira (Ultimates 3) and Frank Cho (New Ultimates) all suffered from this.
    • In Hitch's case at least, this can be mostly excused due to his Awesome Art
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The comic makes it very clear that George W. Bush is the President of the United States. Along with commentary on the War on Terror, various talk shows having characters make appearances on them, and references to celebrities who were popular at the time (like Freddie Prinze Jr.), the first two Mark Millar penned volumes are unmistakenly set in the 2000s.
  • What Could Have Been: Millar and Hitch were working on a story titled Civil War. Then Millar got the chance to write Marvel's crisis crossover of the year, so he declined that project, and adapted some of his ideas to the Civil War comic instead.
