The Real Reason the Marvel Universe Is Ending

Blame Shaft

After teasing their summer event Secret Wars for the past few months, Marvel finally announced on Tuesday that the event will mark the end of both the main Marvel universe that’s been going on since the Stan Lee days (aka “616”) and the younger Ultimate Marvel universe, to make way for a new cohesive universe moving forward. Why are they doing this? Answer: it’s all about Nick Fury. Maybe.
