"Ultimate Origins" #1 sells out

Official Press Release

Debuting to critical acclaim, Ultimate Origins #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level)! Even with Marvel's largest retailer incentive ever, a massive overprint, and tremendous support from retailers, the demand for this March on Ultimatum tie-in has been overwhelming! The first issue of the shocking series by Brian Michael Bendis (Secret Invasion) and Butch Guice, revealed the origin of mutants in the Ultimate Universe--and how it's all tied to everyone's favorite Canucklehead!

Marvel will not be going back to press on this issue, but urges retailers to check the Marvel Mailer for a significant incentive on Ultimate Origins #2 and upcoming information on similar incentives for Ultimate Origins #3. Marvel is also extending the FOC for Ultimate Origins #2 by one week to allow fans and retailers to adjust their orders!

Just what is the truth behind the Super Solder experiments? How does Captain America's transformation from soldier to super hero affect the very core of the Ultimate U? Find out in Ultimate Origins #2, featuring 50/50 covers from superstar artists Simone Bianchi (upcoming Astonishing X-Men) and Dell'Otto, plus a Dell'Otto Sketch Variant!

Marvel would like to thank retailers for their tremendous support of Ultimate Origins!
