ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Leinil Yu has joined the ranks of Marvel Comics' exclusive creators and will be drawing Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine, Marvel announced on Saturday at its Ultimate Universe panel at Wizard World Chicago.

The book launches in December with whom Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada called "a major-league writer." The story has Wolverine sent to take out the Hulk and is told from both characters' perspectives.

"We learn a lot more about the Hulk and how he is different from the regular Hulk," Quesada said.

In other news from the panel:

* Ultimate Spider-Man #86 will feature Ultimate Omega Red. "Because I love crappy 90's characters," said writer Brian Michael Bendis.

* Editor Nick Lowe said an artist for the second arc for Ultimate Iron Man been chose, but could not be named yet.

* Marvel displayed several pages of Greg Land's work from Ultimate Fantastic Four #22. "Just beautiful," Quesada said.

* Ultimate Secret #3 will ship in November, with Ultimate Secret #4 in December.

* Next year's big event is Ultimate Invasion, with Bendis and an unnamed artist who has not worked in the Ultimate Universe before. It springs out of Namor's appearance in Ultimate Fantastic Four.

* The Ultimates will continue after the run of Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch. "Hopefully, you'll hear about the new creative team soon," Quesada said.

* Bryan Singer's Ultimate X-Men arc is still on, but will now probably happen later than this winter as previously announced. Singer is currently filming Superman Returns in Australia.
