ULTIMATE NIGHTMARE #1 (October, 2004)
By Warren Ellis & Trevor Hairsine

APPEARANCES:
Professor X, Marvel Girl, Nick Fury, Captain America, Black Widow, Sam Wilson, Vision-VO

SYNOPSIS:
In 1904, something crashes in Tunguska, Russia, leaving a giant crater. In 1927, explorers are terrified by what they find in Tunguska. In 2004, a telepathic broadcast is sent worldwide, cutting into all TV, radio and internet transmissions, warning of the end times. It’s so terrifying people begin to commit suicide. Professor X finally pinpoints where the signal is coming from and gathers an X-Men team to investigate, thinking it to be a new mutant in trouble. Nick Fury gathers an Ultimates team to investigate thinking it to be a new weapon, and recruits Sam Wilson to join them.

NOTE:
This mini takes place before Ultimates 2 #1.

Sam Wilson has the wings, but no one calls him Falcon, and he doesn’t like codenames.
