One thing the Ultimate Universe is known for is being able to do big things that you would never see in the regular Marvel Universe. We've seen major deaths (with many of them actually sticking) and stories go in places you'd never expect. This is one of those stories. What happens in ULTIMATE COMICS ULTIMATES this week is something we've thought about often but now it's actually going to happen and it won't be a WHAT IF--? story.

Issue #15 is out this week followed by issue #16 next week.

No Caption Provided
The people have spoken—and tomorrow Steve Rogers, the man known as Captain America, becomes President Elect of the United States of America! InUltimate Comics Ultimates #15, from rising star writer Sam Humphries and fan-favorite artist Billy Tan, Captain America’s made his dramatic return and publically saved America from an insidious new enemy in one of his most harrowing battles yet. But when all the dust settles, Steve Rogers is about to get the biggest surprise of his life—he’s won the special election for the Presidency via write-in! What does this mean for his future as Captain America? Can he be a President who fights on the frontlines?

“This is one of those stories that could only be told in the Ultimate Comics Universe, where the only rule is simple—there are no rules.” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “We’ve seen Captain America fight wars and battle super villains, but running a country is a whole new challenge—but don’t worry, this isn’t about political speeches and closed door meetings. This is exactly the kind of high-octane, super powered thrill ride you’d expect from a book called The Ultimates!”

Then next week, in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #16, Humphries and artist Luke Ross, Steve Rogers accepts the position of President of The United States- and not a moment too soon! A deadly villain with a personal tie to the Ultimates is about to enact his endgame, one which promises to leave no hero unscathed. Now Captain America must find a way to safeguard this country both as a President and as a super hero—but can he do both?

What happened to that NEW battle armor costume he was supposed to have to go along with his changing look? Seems like that got thrown out the window before it could even become slightly meaningful.

Wasn't that just a temporary thing for that particular fight?

U Cap is more of a traditional soldier that uses the tools needed for the mission (guns, armor, etc) but keeps a standard uniform.

@Veitha: Good question. We all know that Hawkeye killed the original Black Widow. (10 year old spoiler) They'll probably throw a random redhead as a Hawkeye's team up for movie sake, since a lot the of the movie are based on the Ultimate Universe.

It looks pretty incredible. Personally I think Steve is too honest to be a politician. The public will always be in a panic because he will bluntly state the worst case scenarios of global crises in progress. Also he's sure to run into opposition when he deals with congress. When he see the true darkness within the American government he may just go awol and become another character all together that can no longer stand to wear the flag as his symbol. His honesty and integrity will be the end of him but I still love the character.

Are we running out of storylines? This happened in the 616 universe back in the 80's. Of course, Cap never won.

Thinking about this, Ultimate Cap is much more aggressive in his fighting style and attitude. 616 Cap, is much more grounded, and morelife experience.

This looks cool, but a little silly and far fetched (having a superhero as president). Although I haven't kept up with the Ultimates aside from the Ultimate Collections so I don't know how out of nowhere this is coming from.

I pretty much figured this was going to happen but Marvel shouldn't have revealed it.  I get why they did but they still shouldn't have.  

.
Now that Cap is President does anyone else want to see Cap punch out some other politicians?
