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.
