    Ultimate characters who should get more character development

    What Ultimate characters do you think need more development as characters? I think there are a lot of under developed Spidey villains in the UU, it be nice to see say Sandman in a story where he does something a bit more interesting then just being a minion in the Sinister Six.

    Most of the X-Men, but they were only used for cannon fodder. I mean, the only mutants who got any kind of character growth were Cyclops, Charles, Erik, Kitty and Wolverine. Everyone else were treated as an unending body count.

    The spider-clones.

    All of them to varying degrees, but especially Jessica Drew (They did actually use her name, right?).

    This. They actually had an interesting Clone Saga idea and did absolutely **** all with it.

    The whole line, but especially USM, was filled with fascinating ideas that were never really explored. But the clone saga was one of the more egregious ones. Jessica Drew's situation in particular was actually a pretty horrifying premise when you thought about it, but Bendis really didn't have the chops to explore that. I mean, forced transexuality? Instead we got another quintessentially Bendis GWAAAAARGGGGHHHH!!!! deus ex.

    (Actually, some of the core ideas that could have been explored by the implications of the clone saga are interesting enough that someone should explore them in a story somewhere, even if it's not USM)

    Even before that there was a period of time where they were just puking up Ultimate versions of characters with nothing special done with them. It was mostly Bendis but it seemed like Kirkman did it too. Vaughan did very well with his Ultimizations.

    I wasn't a huge fan of Mark Millar's UXM run but at least the characters were more noteworthy.

    Does wanting a new Ultimate Iron Man origin count? I hated the Orson Scott Card Ultimate Iron Man books. I'd love for someone to start over with that.

    I can't remember off hand, who was the one that introduced Betsy Braddock and killed her in like the same issue?

    That would be Millar. It was during the World Tour arc.

    Millar actually wrote that off as being a TV show in the Ultimates Universe and Tony's origin is much more poignant and believable. (Read: He's not blue)

    Wait. What? Serious? Was that in an actual issue of something?

    I completely missed and/or forgot that. Good to know. I'll have to go back and re-read that.

    This is an example a good ret con. I wouldn't mind some minor retcons here and there to get rid of some the sillier story elements and giving some characters more development. Ulimate Shocker's back story in his last appearance was a bit of retcon, it might be nice to see him again and develop his character further, based on the events of his last appearance.
