Note #1: In this series writer Al Ewing often used the terms “universe” and “multiverse” and “omniverse” as though they were interchangeable but they REALLY are not. This has been the source of some confusion, at least for me. For example, in Ultimates 2 #6, the First Firmament carefully specifies that the Second Cosmos was the first of the multiverses and it later refers to Eternity’s death and resurrection as being his change from the seventh multiverse to the eighth. This indicates that there should be NINE Cosmoses: one universe and eight multiverses. However, this final issue makes it clear that there are only EIGHT different iterations of reality: the original First Firmament and the seven Multiverses. So why did the First Firmament previously refer to Eternity as being the eighth multiverse? Little glitches like this really bug me, especially when one would think they could be so easily avoided.

Note #2: Character watches for issues #3-9 have already been done by Jason Doty.
