IN GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY

ON EARTH-1610, A BLACK NICK FURY IS THE FIRST SUPER-SOLDIER

In Ultimate Origins (2008) #1, we learn about the conspiracies in the Ultimate Universe. At the start of the issue, we learn of the origins of the Super-Soldier Serum. To begin, Bruce Banner tells Spider-Man a secret. In fact, the Super-Soldier and Weapon X programs are all connected. However, General Thaddeus Ross and the U.S. Army are hunting down Banner. When Ross storms in, Banner Hulks out. Then, he escapes with the Army in hot pursuit. Fast backward in time, we meet Corporal James Howlett, Nick Fury and Private Fisk. During WWII, the trio is attempting to loot a house in Sicily.

The American Military Police arrives and arrests them. Without due process, they lock Fury at an unknown location. At the prison, there are other black men. There, Dr. Abraham Erskine, the lead on Project Rebirth, meets him. Against his will, Erskine enrolls Fury into the program. Sinisterly, he is Subject 22. Immediately, the army personnel straps Fury to a chair. Then, he is injected with the Super-Soldier Serum. Incredibly, the Super-Soldier experiment succeeds. Amazingly, Fury develops superhuman abilities. Heroically, the Super-Soldier busts out of his restraints and frees the prisoners.

WITH WEAPON X CANADA STARTED A SUPER-SOLDIER ARMS RACE

For his part, Canadian paratrooper Howlett was enrolled into the Weapon X program. In 1943, in Alberta, Canada, Dr. Abraham Cornelius successfully created the first mutant. In fact, Howlett was dubbed Mutant Zero. On awakening, James’ animality rose and he attempted to escape. Reaching the top of the snowy mountain, he was shot in the head. Amazingly, he survived as his wounds healed. Later, they brought him back to base. In fact, it was in response to the development of the Super-Soldier Serum. After, Canada created its own variants.

Indeed, Dr. Cornelius discovered the mutant gene. Incredibly, the Weapon X program managed to activate the mutant gene. Hence, Mutant Zero would develop super powers. Intently, they planned on spreading the gene creating the mutant race. In the 2000s, Weapon X became a counter-terrorism subdivision of S.H.I.E.L.D. Tragically, mutants were captured and sent on missions. Effectively, mutants were considered Super-Soldiers by governments. In fact, they participated to fight wars across the world. Particularly, the Super-Soldier vs mutant war erupted in Ultimate War (2003).

In Ultimate Origins (2008) #1, James Howlett is riddled with bullets.

MAKER’S ORIGIN STORY

In the “Ultimatum” event, Magneto creates cataclysmic events on Earth-1610. Previously, Hawkeye‘s assassination attempt on Magneto was thwarted at the cost of Quicksilver’s life. Indeed, in retaliation for the deaths of his children, Wanda and Pietro. Using Thor’s Mjolnir, Magneto shifted the planet’s magnetic poles. As a result of the cataclysms, millions died including several Ultimate heroes.

In order to regain a sense of normalcy, Reed Richards proposed to Invisible Woman. However, Sue rejected his proposal. In ‘Ultimate Comics Ultimates’ (2013) #30, Reed’s descent towards Maker is evident. A week after the Ultimatum, Kang the Conqueror visited Reed from the future. Shockingly, Kang revealed herself as Sue Storm. Incredibly, she commissioned Reed to gather the Infinity Gauntlet. In short, she wanted to prevent the end of the Ultimate Universe. In the end, the path would lead to Mister Fantastic becoming the Maker.

AFTER “KING IN BLACK,” MAKER IS A MULTIVERSAL ANOMALY

In “Venom” (2021) #200, Eddie Brock is adjusting to being the new King in Black. As the God of the Symbiotes, Eddie can control all the symbiotes. Really, all that ever existed and he can see through them. In fact, he can pilot them to multiples places at the same time. Moreover, his omniscience allows him to see Knull’s first war against the God of Light. Curiously, Eddie speculates he may be able to travel through the timestream and alter history.

Nevertheless, the only being that has ecaped his omniscience is Maker. In ‘Venom’ (2020) #26, Maker had successfully created an artificial symbiote. To this end, he had used an Earth-616 symbiote. Sinisterly, he had planned to travel to the Ultimate Universe. However, his plan was foiled by a man in an Iron Man-esque armor. Finally, Maker was transported to the Ultimate Universe through a dimensional rift. In a sense, he became a multiversal anomaly.

IN ORDER TO JOIN THE COUNCIL OF REEDS, MAKER MIGHT CONQUER EDDIE AND DYLAN BROCK

In ‘Venom’ (2021) #200, Eddie appears at multiple locations in the Marvel Universe. Seriously, he warns the different heroes of Maker’s master plan. Ultimately, Maker seeks to join the Council of Reeds. Ironically, all members of the Council come from stable universes. Decisively, they have tasked Maker to restore the Ultimate Universe. Ultimately, it is the condition before he can join.

As Eddie reveals, Maker’s plan likely involves erasing the Marvel Universe. On top, he would rebuild the Ultimate Universe. Initially, his work for the Council is under the code name “Project Oversight.” Historically, Maker was interested in symbiotes for dimensional travel. Logically, Eddie and Dylan would be his targets. Perhaps, he would raise his own army of synthetic symbiotes.

Fan Theory: Miles Morales In The Mainstream Marvel Universe Means The Ultimate Universe Was Rebooted After Secret Wars

 

FAN THEORY

“SECRET WARS” REBOOTED THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE

In “Secret Wars” (2015), the Marvel multiverse is being destroyed by the multiversal entities known as the Beyonders. Only two remaining universes remain: the main Marvel universe and the Ultimate universe. In the Beyond, Doctor Doom meets with the Beyonders in order to save the remaining universes. Originlly, Molecule Man was designed by the Beyonders as a bomb that would destroy the multiverse. Using Molecule Men as bombs, Doctor Doom and Doctor Strange killed the Beyonders and stole their power.

During the incursions between Earth-616 and Earth-1610, Mister Fantastic built the Future Foundation Life Rafts to transport the survivors to the incursion points. Suffering a hull breach, they nevertheless survived and were transported to Battleworld, created by Doctor Doom. On Battleworld, Doctor Doom was worshipped as God on a world of controlled chaos. There, the Life Raft and the Cabal opposed Doom’s reign. In the end, Doom was defeated and Molecule Man destroyed Battleworld, rebooting the mainstream Marvel universe. In the end, the Ultimate universe was no more.

MILES MORALES JOINED THE MAINSTREAM MARVEL UNIVERSE

In ‘Secret Wars’ (2015) #6, the Maker’s and Reed Richards plans are set into motion. Miles Morales and Spider-Man go off to the White Room to find Doom’s source of power. There, in front of Molecule Man’s statue, they find Valeria, Doctor Doom’s daughter on Battleworld but who is actually Reed Richards’ daughter. After a brief discussion with her, the two Spider-Men enter the white room. Inside, they find Molecule Man there who asks them if they brought him something to eat. Surprisingly, Miles Morales takes out a three week-old hamburger from his pocket and gives it to Molecule Man.

Fully fed, Spider-Man asks Molecule Man about Doctor Doom’s power source. Molecule Man tells them they are looking at him. In ‘Secret Wars’ (2016) #9, Miles Morales has a flashback to that moment. In the white room, Molecule Man thanks him for the burger. It is implied that Molecule Man saved Miles Morales and his family in the new mainstream Marvel universe. In the present, the two Spider-Men are on a rooftop and after Peter checks if Miles has done his homework, the two Spider-Men swing into adventure to go beat up on bad guys.

VENOM WARNS THE MAKER SEEKS TO RE-CREATE THE ULTIMATE UNIVERSE

In ‘Venom’ (2021) #200, the Ultimate universe resurfaces. Now, Eddie Brock has become the new King in Black and is testing his super powers. After testing his omniscience, he notes the only one escaping his power is the Maker, Reed Richards’ evil counterpart from the Ultimate universe. Having obtained an artificial symbiote from the Ultimate universe, the Maker used Venom‘s symbiote to augment and heal his psyche.

Able to travel between dimensions, the Maker returned to the Ultimate universe, which was destroyed. Then, Eddie uses his super powers to meet simultaneously the Avengers, Quiet Council of Krakoa, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Silver Surfer and other groups to warn them tat the Maker will likely return to conquer Earth-616. In fact, this task has been commissioned him by the Interdimensional Council of Reeds. In all likelihood, it is possible the Ultimate universe was rebooted after “Secret Wars.”
