* BigNameFan: When Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch made the ultimate version of Nick Fury, they based him on the likeness of the actor Creator/SamuelLJackson. When Marvel started the MCU years later, Jackson was an obvious choice. But when they asked him, they did not need to explain what was it all about: Jackson was already a big fan of the Ultimates.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Millar was not allowed to actually use the name "Avengers" due to Marvel believing that the brand recognition was dead in the water at the time. Millar even stated that Marvel tried to offer him an ''Ultimate Wolverine'' book in an attempt to dissuade him.


* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The comic makes it very clear that UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush is the President of the United States. Along with commentary on the UsefulNotes/WarOnTerror, various talk shows having characters make appearances on them, and references to celebrities who were popular at the time (like Creator/FreddiePrinzeJr), the first two Creator/MarkMillar penned volumes are unmistakenly set in the [[TurnOfTheMillennium 2000s]].

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Millar and Hitch were working on a story titled ''Civil War''. Then Millar got the chance to write Marvel's crisis crossover of the year, so he declined that project, and adapted some of his ideas to the ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' comic instead.

* DidNotDoTheResearch: A revived Steve Rogers disbelieves SHIELD staff due to their commander, a black Nick Fury, claiming to be a General. Claiming that the highest ranking Black officer is the Army is a captain. In reality, there'd been a Brigadier at the time (one star General, as opposed to Fury's four, but still) and many Captains, Majors and Colonels.
** Also, JephLoeb using elements of 616 characters that contradict the established Ultimate versions. Minor examples: Thor's hammer, Sabertooth's claws. Major examples: Valkyrie and poor, poor Pyro.
*** To be honest, Loeb [[TheyJustDidntCare didn't care to do any research]] before writing his 'contributions' to the series, so it's hardly surprising.
** Banner is tried for 852 counts of murder in New York, which has no death penalty, yet everyone states that it would be an instant death sentence if Banner is found culpable. Admittedly, if there were anything that would make New York reconsider their stance on the matter...
