MCU Phase 4: 5 Things You Need To Know About The Ultimates
5. How They Were Created
The Ultimates is comprised of five members: Blue Marvel, Black Panther, Spectrum, Miss America and Captain Marvel.
Each of these characters has their own origin stories, which will be covered in further entries to this list. The team, as a whole, was brought together by cosmic threats to Earth and the larger universe. Although the group shares a name with the 2002 version of 'The Ultimates', that is where the similarities end. The original rendition of the team was the Ultimate universe's answer to The Avengers, where the characters that readers know are modernised and re-vamped in their appearances.
Originally, it was Captain Marvel that first proposed the creation of the 2015 team, consulting with Black Panther on the existence of cosmic threats and deciding that they needed to form a group that can stop them before they reach Earth, with non-violent solutions optioned whenever possible.
The group is formed of five of Marvel's newer heroes, which could cement them as the newest staple in Marvel comic book history.
