The Avengers The under performance of WATCHMEN is proof why Marvel should not do THE ULTIMATES

It didn't do that well. Critics generally disliked it, and it didn't do as successful as the marketing machine pushed it.

I wouldn't say generally disliked. It's got a 64% on RT, so I'd put that about lukewarm. It was more than 50/50 on like and dislike.

However, going back to my earlier sentiments, I think we can all agree that Marvel will not do an straight adaptation of The Ultimates, but I do think that it would be a very good idea to draw upon some of the ideas that the Ultimates put into play. Mostly it's in terms of stylistic choices, but I thought a few story ideas were done very well, particularly the Skrulls.
