PRESIDENT CLINTON MEETS PRIME: A PRELUDE TO THE EXCITING 'BREAK-THRU' IN THE ULTRAVERSE

 WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- President Clinton may be working on NAFTA and health care reforms in our universe, but he also gets a chance to make a difference in Malibu Comics' Ultraverse as he formally appears in "Prime No. 6."
 Clinton plays an important part in the prelude chapter to the "Break Thru" story line in all of the Ultraverse titles during the month of December.
 Prime, the strongest "ultrahuman" in the Ultraverse, is a 13-year- old boy with an adult body and the mind of a teenager. He has the unique ability to transform into one of the most powerful beings on the planet. In "Prime No. 6," Prime is recruited by the president to go on a secret mission, which will ultimately lead to the birth of many new Ultraverse characters.
 In this special issue, Prime promises President Clinton that he'll do all he can for the United States. In addition to meeting the president, Prime has the opportunity to meet one of his peers. Chelsea Clinton, the president's 13-year-old daughter. Prime and Chelsea share a personal moment as they discuss how tough it is to be "watched by the world all the time." Prime understands this well, being only 13 years old himself.
 "It is very important for us to involve our readers with realistic situations, while at the same time trying to create the mythos of the Ultraverse," said Scott Rosenberg, chief executive officer and president of Malibu Comics. "Prime's interaction with the United States government will continue to be an important part of his story line."
 The Ultraverse, a fictional universe, was launched last summer by Malibu Comics using some of the most talented writers and artists in the comic book industry. Prime and many other heroes were created to help introduce a new generation of readers to comics as well as to add new and exciting stories to the comic book industry. The characters have become highly recognized and have been used for cause worthy events.
 Most recently, a special "Ultraverse Flood Relief" issue with the Red Cross featuring Prime was offered to readers to help the many flood victims of the Midwest.
 "We want to see our characters grow and make a difference in the lives of others," said Rosenberg. "It is an extra bonus when we are able to help others in need."
 Malibu Comics, a subsidiary of the multimedia Malibu Comics Entertainment -- which also creates and develops video games such as "Batman Returns" -- publishes comic books spanning the realms of fantasy, science fiction, super heroes, humor, horror and parody.
