* AdaptationalBadass: While his mainstream counterpart always skirts the line between Peak Human and then some, Ultimate Cap is an outright superhuman, strong enough to stalemate Spider-Man and give the ''Hulk'' a good fight.

* {{Expy}}: Of [[Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} Bullseye]], though he is a strange case as there already ''was'' an Ultimate version of Bullseye active years before The Ultimates were called into service. [[note]]Benjamin Poindexter was The Kingpin's right hand until Elektra took him out in ''Ultimate Elektra: Devil's Due'', but her book (along with ''Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra'' and ''Ultimate Marvel Team-Up'') were retconned out of existence via [[WordOfGod Word of Bendis]]. Officially, the events in those books ''might'' have happened in BroadStrokes but Creator/MarkMillar specifically wanted to use Hawkeye as a "good" version of Bullseye, so it's probably safe to say Clint Barton '''is''' Bullseye without calling him so.[[/note]]

* CompositeCharacter: Of the 616-Hawkeye and ''[[Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} Bullseye]]'' with shades of [[Comicbook/ThePunisher]]. He retains the name Clint Barton and backstory, loses his family (and takes to using [[MoreDakka firearms]]) a la Frank Castle, and has the superhuman accuracy (and bloodlust) of Benjamin Poindexter, though he is marginally more moral than Castle and leagues ahead of the psychopathic Bullseye.

* LogicalWeakness: Hulk's AdaptiveAbility makes him a trying opponent to fight in the best of times, and the longer a fight lasts the more likely Hulk will become strong enough to turn the tide to his favor. Therefore, if someone manages to one-shot him he can be beaten. Also, his ability "reset" after every transformation, so the strength and durability gained in a previous battle won't carry over to the next. Only things that affect him at a cellular level (like Tony's cure) stick around.

* CombatSadomasochist: Since he's driven purely by id, there's not really that much difference to him separating sex and violence.

to:

* CombatSadomasochist: Since he's driven purely by id, there's not really that much difference to him separating sex and violence. He considered getting beaten to a pulp by [[Comicbook/SupremePower Princess Zarda]] to be ''foreplay''.



* SuperStrength: He is The Hulk, after all. With his AdaptiveAbility, he has the potential to be one of the strongest beings in the Ultimate Universe. However, it takes awhile for him to get going (his fight with The Ultimates being a good example, as the longer the fight went on the stronger he became). However, a sufficiently powerful being can thrash him if they are strong enough, as [[ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour Ben Grimm]] did in ''Ultimate Power''.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: He has a tendency to come off as "old fashioned", which can make people annoyed at or scornful of him. This was done purposefully by the creators, as they figured mainstream!Cap's "always on the politically correct side of the scale" idealism was hard to believe from someone taken straight from the early 1940s. That said, Ultimate Cap is still in many ways a very idealistic, forward-thinking man ''by the standards of a WASP from the 1940s'' -- see, for example, his prized possession of a photo of himself with the Tuskegee Airmen, when most white military men of that era would still object to serving alongside black ones. He's just not ''as'' politically correct as mainstream!Cap.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Mainstream Natasha started out as a Russian spy who then joined the USA. Here, it's the other way around.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Much, ''much'' more willing to kill people than his regular self.



* AdaptationalVillainy: Unlike regular Wanda, who was forcibly recruited into the Brotherhood, this Wanda was a full-time willing member, and even lead it for a time.
