Not Your Father’s Avengers

This story speculating on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe offers us an idea that I’ve been having ever since the Black Panther movie was so well received and the Captain Marvel movie is on the horizon.

The article gives an excellent outline of who is who in this version of the Ultimates. As the article points out, it is important to present this as something new and not Avengers 2.0. The fact that there isn’t a white male on the team is also groundbreaking and something new and different in today’s super-hero landscape.

The only thing you’d have to do is change Blue Marvel’s name to something like Ultramarine and you’d be good to go. Although, to be honest they kept Rocket Raccoon for Guardians of the Galaxy so maybe all bets are off on that front.
