In othe news from the panel:

* Editor-in-chief Joe Quesada said that the Ultimate Annuals are returning.

Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Brooks will again team on Ultimate Spider-Man, which will deal with the fallout from the "Warriors" story. The story will include Daredevil, Punisher and Moon Knight.
