Earth-1610, also known as Ultimate Marvel or the Ultimate Universe, is a reality that features re-imagined versions of the Marvel Comic's superhero/villians characters and origins.


The imprint was launched in October of 2000 with the publication of the series Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimate X-Men.

The characters in this universe have either new origins or different looks, freeing them from the sometimes convoluted back-stories of their original Earth-616 counterparts, and making them different from their counterparts.

In the Ultimatum story arc, most ultimate characters have been killed off. The Fantastic Four has also disbanded.
