interesting...trades are heap enough. But the Ultimate Universe and the Marvel Universe are one and the same now, right?

Yeah, but this isn't the old Ultimates characters (the Ultimate Universe version of the Avengers). Marvel is just re-using the name. The series is set in the Marvel Universe.
It features Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), Black Panther, and Spectrum (who was the African-American Captain Marvel during the 1980s, created by Roger Stern) as main characters. Galactus is also a recurring character.

Hm both trades are less that $12 each so I might bite.

Marvel's announced Legacy line-up (yet another regularly scheduled relaunch) so far appears to be mostly the same books they're publishing right now, with a few new ones.

No mention of the creative teams.

If they're not naming names, what's the point of announcing anything?

I'm guessing most of the creative teams are probably going to be staying the same, as most of the titles are ones currently being published, with some of them (like the X-line) just being launched. I can't see Marvel changing creative teams on books like that this soon.
Can Marvel make it any more apparent that they're trying to copy DC? "Back-to-basics", 52 titles total....
Yeah, there's only a few new titles being launched....Marvel Two-in-One, Spirits of Vengeance seem to be the only new books.

Ugh....There's a rumour that the only actual reveal out of this entire "reveal", Marvel Two-in-One, is going to be a Brian Bendis book. That's all Marvel needs, for Bendis to write more of their titles.

And....Marvel's best book, The Ultimates, seems to be gone.

Also, if you look at the homage Legacy covers for this launch, you'll notice that the Inhumans (Royals) and Black Bolt covers both homage a classic Claremont/Byrne Uncanny X-Men cover. Subliminal message, eh?

The tone on the internet seems to be that Marvel has decided to "troll" all its fans with its entire line of comics, at this point. Perhaps Marvel grew so pissed off at the fans ruining their huge Secret Empire event by complaining about how offensive their every decision for the plot was, that Marvel decided to get revenge by making Marvel: Legacy one of the biggest let-downs in comic history.

Marvel Comics is in a really bad way, right now, I'd assume. They released the first issue of Astonishing X-Men this week, and the owner of the comic store I go to told me I was the first person to buy a copy all day. There was a time when any X-Men book would sell bigly. Now, the store didn't even sell one copy? That's huy-ghe! I guess Marvel working so hard for all those years to convince fans that the X-Men sucked and that the Inhumans were way better worked. Now, Marvel wants you to read X-Men comics again, well, guess what? The fans listened to Marvel and realized that the X-Men suck! Unfortunately for them, fans still think that the Inhumans suck too.
I think that Marvel pissed away so much of their good will with Secret Empire also. The fans just turned out in droves from that book.
Astonishing X-Men wasn't bad either. It wasn't anything to go out of your way to read, but it was similar to a 1990s X-Men title, when any X-Men book was going to be a best bet, believe me.
I have my doubts that another soft-boot that is being marketed as a return to legacy numbering is going to be enough to help Marvel at this point.

I've sworn off the big 2. Marvel is a mess right now, with all the universes merged.

I've given up on all things DC, but I can't bear to throw in the towel on Marvel. The number of Marvel books I buy each month continues to dwindle though. Marvel have been losing all of their top name writers too. After Secret Empire, Nick Spencer and James Robison are both going to be gone. I think that Jason Aaron and Al Ewing will be the only top writers left at Marvel (and each of them are only writing one monthly title now). Cullen Bunn has been improving more and more, so maybe you could count Bunn as a top writer now too.
Once Legacy kicks in, I'll be down even more Marvel books.
