    Only thing is that she was a part of the Backlash comic. That said, it being Backlash could explain thinking of Stormwatch.
    You're correct. Thank you.

    It depends on how the contract was agreed upon.

    In Ultraverse's case from why I can remember Marvel was interested in the coloring system studio that Malibu was using. So they bought the company and all its assets that they could.

    I am not sure the coloring system was really exclusive to Malibu because Milestone's book around 1996 started using it. In their books they mentioned it. I want to say Static #25 and the Long Hot Summer were the first to have it.

    The issue with Ultraverse much like Black Lightening was COMPESATION to the creators. Somebody doesn't want to pay. Especially since Gerard Jones is one of those creators.

    Ultimate Universe tossed out Miles Morales. If Wildstorm ended like that we would probably have Grifter, Midnighter or Stormwatch in a movie by now.

    Well, it was a nice giant IP's acquisition by AT&T. Lee is fabulously rich now. Can only imagine he's more than fine with whatever DC does/doesn't do with WS. Besides, DC is making moves to be the House of Batman with some Superman.

    WW could really use some kind of rouges gallery other than Cheetah. Surely they can flip her some from the WS IP's. Cybernary & Taboo both look good & hasn't done anything in years.

    I would love to see Cheetah as part of Batman's rogues instead of Wonder Woman, along with Mad Harriet and The Joker working together for a change. The one Rogue gallery that could work for WW is Black Adam and The Rot...

    Joe Q, back when he was Marvel's EIC said he wanted to bring back the Ultraverse but the rights were supposed to be shared with Malibu/Marvel and the creators and since they are of creators involved with the Ultraverse it would be a legal and financial nightmare to sort out all of the rights and royalties with all the creators and since some of the creators are not on good terms with Marvel makes it even harder for what is basically a small cult classic line.

    The Genesis line The Protectors and their spin-offs Man of Action, The Ferret, Gravestone, and the rest are public domain characters and I don't know who owns the rights to Dinosaurs For Hire and The Ex-Mutants and again for even a smaller cult classic line.

    Marvel didn't get what CrossGen was and rebooted it all wrong and failed to get the original creators back to finish the their first crossover and reprint the original series.

    Miles Morales was carried over to Marvel-616 because Bendis wanted to continue writing the character for his long awaited Spider-Men II series that he wanted to finish. I feel that Miles works best in the Ultimate Universe....

    If Jim Lee had to sell Wildstorm I really thought he should have gone to Marvel after reading the WildCats/X-men stories along with the thirteenth issues of Heroes Reborn. Wildstorm meshed well with Marvel characters instead of the feeling of being judged by DC (it seems that way) who have no idea how to use them.
    Be yourself everyone is taken !!

    Did anyone here read The Wild Storm by Ellis from a few years back?

    I for loved it (overall) and would want to see it established as a Universe. While I did grow up on the original WS, TWS fits better with my tastes today.

    Thought the little nods to the original WS universe and re-inventions were sweet. My major gripe was the treatment of Slayton who was one of my favorite charaters in the original.

    What did y'all think?

    Well, it wasn't just Slayton.

    Other folks from the Project could tell that there were issues with their implants. Rainmaker was the only person who seemed to have come out entirely on top of his implant.

    Is this set in its own universe or in the new 52 universe?
