Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk is a comic book miniseries, published by Marvel Comics. The series is set in one of Marvel's shared universes, the Ultimate Universe. It was written by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, and illustrated by artist Leinil Francis Yu and colorist Dave McCaig. The title characters square off after Wolverine is contracted by Nick Fury to assassinate the Hulk, who is known to be residing in Tibet. The series features cameos by other Ultimate characters, as well as the introduction of Ultimate She-Hulk.
It was originally planned as a six-issue, bimonthly series. But after two issues, the remainder of the series was postponed until Lindelof finished all of the scripts, and the series began publication again with a new issue in March 2009.
The series takes place between Ultimate X-Men issues 69 and 71 and before Ultimates 2 issue 11. The miniseries is a throwback to Wolverine's comic debut in The Incredible Hulk #180-182.
Famous quotes containing the words hulk and/or ultimate:
“To anybody who can hold the Present at its worth without being inappreciative of the Past, it may be forgiven, if to such an one the solitary old hulk at Portsmouth, Nelsons Victory, seems to float there, not alone as the decaying monument of a fame incorruptible, but also as a poetic approach, softened by its picturesqueness, to the Monitors and yet mightier hulls of the European ironclads.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“The ultimate end of human acts is eudaimonia, happiness in the sense of living well, which all men desire; all acts are but different means chosen to arrive at it.”
—Hannah Arendt (19061975)
