# Universes Collide in Ultimate Invasion: Marvel’s New Comic Series
Comic book fans, get ready for an epic clash of universes as Marvel’s Ultimate Invasion hits the shelves alongside their new line of comics this week. This four-issue miniseries, written by Jonathan Hickman (known for Secret Wars) and illustrated by Bryan Hitch (who has previously worked on The Ultimates), sets the stage for the return of the Ultimate Universe. The Ultimate Universe had previously come to an end with Secret Wars, but now, with the help of Venom writer Donny Cates and a team of talented artists, it seems that the Ultimate Universe may rise again.
## The Ultimate Universe and the Fight Against the Maker
The Ultimate Invasion storyline revolves around the Illuminati, a group composed of iconic Marvel characters such as Iron Man, Black Panther, Mister Fantastic, Namor, Black Bolt, Doctor Strange, and Professor X. They join forces to stop the Maker, also known as the Ultimate Universe’s Reed Richards, who is on a mission to bring back his home reality. The Maker’s plans involve Spider-Man Miles Morales, adding another layer to the already tense narrative. This miniseries serves as a bridge to the new line of Ultimate Universe comics that Marvel is launching in November.
## The Incredible Hulk Returns
In addition to Ultimate Invasion, Marvel introduces another new series this week: The Incredible Hulk. This series, written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and illustrated by Nic Klein, explores the struggle of the Hulk as he tries to gain permanent control over Bruce Banner’s body. Building upon the success of the fan-favorite Immortal Hulk, the new Hulk series delves into the mythology established in its predecessor, specifically focusing on Gamma, the Green Door, and the One Below All. The emergence of a new threat, the Mother of Horrors, adds further complications to the Hulk’s journey.
## The Scarlet Witch Annual and the “Contest of Chaos”
While Ultimate Invasion and The Incredible Hulk take center stage, another Marvel event is brewing within the pages of Scarlet Witch Annual #1. Titled “Contest of Chaos,” this event follows Agatha Harkness, who serves as the villain in this thrilling storyline. Previously deaged in Marvel’s Midnight Suns miniseries, Agatha forces heroes like Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Captain Marvel, among others, to face off against each other in a grand tournament. Scarlet Witch Annual #1 serves as a prelude to this exciting event.
