They're rumoured to replace the Avengers, but what do fans need to know about the Ultimates?

Marvel Comics

Ever since Marvel announced their plans for Phase Three of the MCU back in 2014, fans have been clamouring to know more about the future of their favourite heroes and after the events in Avengers: Endgame, the MCU's future has never been more wide open.

With the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home revealing the existence of the multiverse, the possibilities for Phase Four are endless. Alongside Disney's buyout of 20th Century Fox, there are a multitude of options for Marvel Studios to use over the next set of films across the next four or five years.

The original rendition of The Ultimates from 2002 were modernised versions of classic Marvel heroes, in the aptly-named 'Ultimate universe'. However, the more recent edition of The Ultimates (from 2015) is a team of characters formed in order to solve high-profile issues in the mainstream Marvel Comic Book Universe.

They're heavily rumoured to replace the Avengers in Marvel's next phase, and if that is the case, it stands to reason that fans may have questions.

Although The Ultimates are highly powerful, they're only a recent creation. So, with their anticipated big screen debut in mind, let's provide an overview of the team, and how they may feature going forward...
