Re: This Franchise Needs a Reboot Bad
But your whole argument shows that 616 is better.
You mention how Last Stand was a byproduct of Ultimate and Multiple Man, Juggernaught and Origin's Gambit were all Ultimate inspired. But most of us believe that each of these characters you mention from the movies were horrible. Juggernaught was an absolute joke and a character that they were willing to ruin just so he could run into a wall.
You mention how Captain America and Thor are 616 inspired, and again these are two movie characters that most have agreed were done extremely well.
Personally I don't think it's fair to say that Amazing Spider-man's Peter/Spidey is based oin ultimate. In fact I would argue that he is much closer to 616. You mention how Gwen is 616 inspired, and once again Emma's Gwen is one of the best characters in that movie.
You've now frightened me more about the future of Fantastik Four!
So why, if most of the things that have been positive in the Avenegers, Spider-man, Ironman and X-men have been 616 inspired, would they go ultimate on a reboot?
That would be as bad as trying to go with an Ultimate inspired MJ after going with a 616 Gwen... oh, I see what you mean.
Maybe a reboot isn't the best way to go, unless they can take their heads out of their buttes and accept that 616 is just better!
