* The Creator/DCComics ''All-Star'' line, which had the ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' and ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'' miniseries (with future projects based on WonderWoman, ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}, and possibly ComicBook/{{the Flash}}), was a form of this. The series aren't supposed to take place in any particular continuity (although ''All-Star Batman and Robin'' does [[ContinuitySnarl supposedly]] take place in the same continuity as Creator/FrankMiller's other Batman stories), and are supposed to be a concentration of what makes those characters special. As well, ''Justice'' is basically ''All-Star {{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}}'', even if it couldn't legally be called that.

* The New 52 relaunch also has some of this, but confusingly not always. Some series are just continuations of old series with renumbered issues while others are complete reboots or retellings. Can be quite confusing to tell which is which at times. Ironic, as the whole point of the New 52 was to make things less confusing for new readers.
** ''ComicBook/Earth2'' is this for the ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyofAmerica'' and the Earth-2 setting in general, with some readers calling it DC's answer to Marvel's ''ComicBook/TheUltimates''.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy'' is this for the Franchise/{{Batman}} mythos, distilling many aspects of the original comics, while taking a more realistic approach and, in some cases drastically changing some characters to fit the medium and story. All three films borrow elements from iconic Batman stories, making the trilogy something of a PragmaticAdaptation. Like most ultimate universes, the films essentially ask the question "what would this character be like in the real world?".

** In particular, Anime/GhostInTheShellArise has all the hallmarks of an UltimateUniverse, complete with a YoungerAndHipper re-imagining of the familiar cast, different characterization, and origin stories that have been updated or in some cases greatly tweaked. Essentially it's [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel "Ultimate Ghost in The Shell"]] in all but name.
