Characters not belonging to any specific titles:

    Doctor Strange 

Doctor Stephen Strange, junior

The Sorcerer Supreme, who inherited the title from his father, Doctor Stephen Strange, after the man went missing. He fights magical monsters with the assistance of his partner Wong. Briefly joined Daredevil in fighting Kingpin. One of the many, many casualties of Ultimatum.

  • Dead Guy Junior: He's got the same name as his dad, who is... "missing".
  • Comic Book Death: After his death in Ultimatum, someone's seen nabbing his corpse... but that was never followed up on before the Ultimate Universe went boom.
  • Gorn: His death is one of the more needlessly unpleasant of Ultimatum (which is saying something). His head is squeezed until it explodes in a shower of blood, on-panel.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's somewhat arrogant, but he is one of the few other super-folks who's actually pleasant toward Spider-Man.

    Misty Knight 

Mercedes Knight
A former cop who lost a hand, now works as a private investigator. She has a bionic arm, created by Tony Stark.

  • Artificial Limbs: She has a bionic arm, courtesy of Tony Stark.
  • The Bus Came Back:
    • This was the first time that Misty Knight, Ultimate or otherwise, was published since the 1970s.
    • After disappearing at the end of the Galactus trilogy, she reappears in Ultimate Doom, working for Roxxon.
  • Heel–Face Turn: For no adequately explained reason, she's perfectly happy working for the very evil Roxxon, as they try to reclaim Jessica Drew.
  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: She longs for the good old days as a police cop.
  • Sir Swearsalot: She did not like being detained by the Ultimates. Not a single bit.


Heather Douglas

A thief killed many years ago, now there's a legion of clones of her. They view Gah Lak Tus as a God, and want to be the ones to make first contact.

    George Tarleton
The top scientist of AIM. He captured a Gah Lak Tus unit and tried to use it to take over the world. Of course, things did not end well.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Considering that he is the Ultimate version of MODOK, an ugly floating head with tiny arms and legs, this one was easy.
  • Analogy Backfire: Tarleton mentioned that those in the satellite live like monks. He then had to clarify that they are not motivated by religion, that he only make the monk comparison because of the reclusion.
  • The Atoner: When Vision restored his sanity, he helped to defeat Gah Lak Tus.
  • Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: He is never called "MODOK", and much less "Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing".
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Everybody, from the Vision to his fellow scientists, told Tarleton that toying with the Gah lak Tus unit would be a massively bad idea. Because it may lead to... exactly what happened.
  • For Science!: His main motivation is to advance science, no matter the cost.
  • Shoot the Messenger: One of the scientists reminded him that the Northern Directorate will not approve of his merging with the Gah Lak Tus unit. He killed him.


How well does it match the trope?
