** Previously unconnected PowerCrystal using superhumans were connected by establishing the Lifestone Tree as a collaboration of eight [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum alien races]] to empower a group to protect them all deemed the Guardians of the Galaxy.

* Similarly, ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'': Many of the previously unconnected villains now related back to Oscorp(just like in the Ultimate Universe): Dr. Octopus worked as a brilliant scientist and inventor who works at Oscorp, Toomes became the Vulture because Oscorp stole his technology, Sandman and Rhino get their powers from Oscorp experiments, Shocker gets his suit as the result of Norman Osborn's machinations, and so on. Interestingly, one of the few major villains in the series whose origin ''was'' related to Oscorp in the comics universe, Tombstone, has a criminal-working relationship with the company, and nothing more.
** ''Spectacular'' also makes use of the ESU genetics lab: For one thing, it's where Spider-Man himself got his powers. Then there was a electrical freak accident that created Electro, which in turn affected Doc Connors' Lizard serum. Miles Warren later used the Lizard serum research in order to give Kraven powers. And to top things off, the symbiote later known as Venom was to be studied in the lab(just like in the Ultimate Universe), too.

** The story, "[[http://crystalhall.wikia.com/wiki/Razzle_Dazzle Razzle Dazzle]]", has villain Mephisto explain that the "meta-gene complex" almost never showed up until after governments started giving vast numbers of people "allergy shots" that were actually supposed to create super-soldiers and suggests that the "meta-gene complex" were the results of people who didn't react to the serum initially, but passed it on to their children. Then again, he also implies at the end of his story that he made much of it up for his audience of one...

* In the ''Creator/{{Wildstorm}}'' universe (now also part of the DCU), the main sources of powers were either [[HalfHumanHybrid alien ancestry]] (like the [[{{Wild Cats}} Wild C.A.T.S.]], who were all part or full Kherubim) or the [[ComicBook/{{Gen 13}} Gen-Factor]], a SuperSerum whose results were [[SuperPowerfulGenetics inheritable]]. The Century Babies also often had mysterious abilities, but their origin is unclear.

** For the sake of simplicity and [[PragmaticAdaptation pragmatism]], ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' reveals that [[spoiler: the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube and Aether are both [[ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet Infinity Stones]]. In the original comics, there is absolutely no relation between either of those objects and the Infinity Gems]].

** For Several characters are revealed to have gotten their powers from the sake of simplicity [[ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet Infinity Stones]], and [[PragmaticAdaptation pragmatism]], several powerful objects from the comics are revealed to ''be'' Infinity Stones. ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' reveals that [[spoiler: the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube Tesseract ([[AdaptationNameChange the "Cosmic Cube" in the comics]]) and the Aether are both [[ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet Infinity Stones]]. In the original comics, there is absolutely no relation between either of those objects Space Stone and the Infinity Gems]].Reality Stone, respectively, and it's heavily implied that the Asgardians can build space portals because they had the Space Stone in their possession for centuries. In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', Ronan the Accuser gets his enhanced strength from having the Power Stone embedded in his hammer. And in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', ComicBook/ScarletWitch, ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, ComicBook/TheVision and ComicBook/{{Ultron}} himself are all created in some form or another by the Mind Stone; Ultron achieved sentience after being connected to it, the twins gained their powers from experimentation with it, and the Vision achieved both his sentience and his energy-blasts from the Stone being embedded in his forehead.



** A plot point in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' is that ComicBook/ScarletWitch, ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, ComicBook/TheVision and ComicBook/{{Ultron}} himself were all created in some form or another by the [[spoiler: Mind Stone]]. [[spoiler: Ultron achieved sentience after being connected to the Mind Stone, the twins gained their powers from experimentation with it, and the Vision achieved both his sentience and his energy-blasts from the Stone being embedded in his forehead]].

* In [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage the original]] ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' series from Mirage Studios, a chance leakage of radioactive mutagen led Splinter and the Turtles to be mutated from a random sewer rat and four turtles that had been abandoned in the sewers of New York. In the more recent [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIDW IDW series]], the Turtles' origin story is reworked to involve nearly every significant character in the ''TMNT'' mythos. Splinter and the Turtles start out as test subjects in a lab owned by Baxter Stockman, the mutagen is an alien substance developed by Krang, April O'Neil is an intern in the lab, and the Turtles escape into the sewers with Splinter after Shredder's Foot Clan attempts to steal them from the lab. Even Casey Jones plays an important role: after Raphael fails to escape with the others and ends up separated from his brothers on the streets of New York, Casey is the one who helps him find his way to the sewers.

** ''AgentsOfSHIELD'' [[spoiler: establishes that HYDRA was originally an ancient cult worshiping a powerful Inhuman who had been exiled from Earth.]] HYDRA was the proximate cause of much of the preceding: their actions led to the creation of the Strategic Scientific Reserve (later SHIELD) in response, which led to the creation of the Super Soldier Project, HYDRA were the ones who uncovered the Tesseract and began using it, uncovering the Tesseract led to Loki's invasion that created the Avengers, and HYDRA was also responsible for the creation of the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (which accidentally led to Tony Stark creating Ultron). All of this can therefore be directly connected [[spoiler: to the Kree having attempted to create supersoldiers out of humans (creating the first Inhumans) in the ancient past]].

** {{Fanon}} suggests that the morphing powers tap into the grid to access the uniform and weapons, it is sort of a canon HyperspaceArsenal. The Grid doesn't necessarily supply the power to the morphers but it instead channels that power into what they need. That's why the different teams with wildly different power sources can all use the morphing grid, you just need to figure out how to channel the grid abilities. This also explains why in teamups, the power-ups and weapons are easily compatible with other teams. There are other characters within the franchise that can "Morph" without being called Rangers, such as MaskedRider and (debatably) the [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Magna Defender]].
