According to many outlets, Marvel has announced that they will merge the mainline universe and the Ultimates universe into a single universe.

Here is a quote provided by Comic Book Resources from Marvel's Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso:

"The Ultimate Universe, the Marvel Universe, they're going to slap together," Alonso said. "Imagine two pizzas: They're going to combine toppings, some toppings are going to drop off. And that is the Marvel Universe moving forward. It's more than the Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Universe, it's all the universes you can imagine. That is the Marvel Universe going forward."

It remains to be seen exactly how Marvel will approach this new combined universe. What are your thoughts?
