ULTIMATE X-MEN/FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (February, 2006)
By Mike Carey & Pasqual Ferry

APPEARANCES:
Professor X, Marvel Girl, Colossus, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Iceman, Shadowcat, Wolverine, Rhona Burchill & her Android (Robbie Burchill), Human Torch, Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic, Thing, Caliban (voice only)

SYNOPSIS:
Rhona Burchill tricks most of the X-Men into leaving so she can steal Cerebro. The remaining X-Me (Shadowcat, Iceman and Wolverine) follow her trail to the Baxter Building, where they assume the Fantastic Four stole Cerebro. A fight ensues. Meanwhile, Rhona sells Cerebro to Caliban’s agents, then uses the schematics to build her own version of Cerebro and gains telepathy. She contacts and taunts Mr. Fantastic.

ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR/X-MEN #2 (March, 2006)
By Mike Carey, Pasqual Ferry & Leinil Francis Yu

APPEARANCES:
Professor X, Marvel Girl, Colossus, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Iceman, Shadowcat, Wolverine, Rhona Burchill & her Android (Robbie Burchill), Human Torch, Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic, Thing, Dr. Franklin Storm, Lt. Lumpkin

SYNOPSIS:
The X-Men realize she’s been tricked. Meanwhile, the other X-Men team up and eventually defeat Rhona; Mr. Fantastic put a virus into Rhona’s Cerebro unit to make her gain empathy. Not liking understanding other people’s point of view, Rhona retreats. However, Wolverine sabotaged Rhona’s escape vehicle and it crashes.

NOTE:
Published between Ultimate X-Men #65-66, and that’s where it takes place. Published between ULTFF 26-27, this has to take place after ULTFF 32. Why?

Thor is with the Ultimates in ULTFF 32. Thor leaves the Ultimates in ULTS2 1-6. There no longer being with the Ultimates is referenced in Ultimate X-Men #61-65. This mini references Ultimate X-Men #61-65. So:

ULTFF 32 -> ULTS2 1-6 -> ULT X-Men 61-65 -> this mini

In theory, I would have suggested the abbreviation for Ultimate X-Men to be “ULTX.” However, there was later a series called “Ultimate X,” so Ultimate X-Men will likely end up being “ULTXM.”

This two issue mini actually has two names. In the indicia, it’s called “Ultimate X-Men/Fantastic Four #1” and “Ultimate Fantastic Four/X-Men #2.” However, both covers just say “Ultimate X4 #1-2.”
