Go To

Marvel Rising Ultimate Comics is a series of motion comics in the Marvel Rising franchise. They were posted on the Marvel HQ YouTube channel from February–March 2019.

Each one focuses on one of the Secret Warriors, telling a story from before the formation of the team as they team up with one of The Avengers.

Contains examples of:

  • Caught Coming Home Late: Dante tries to sneak home after being out too late, but his parents are there waiting for him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Captain America gets in a couple of quips:
    America: Thanks, but for the record, I totally could've handled that without your help.
    Captain America: [smiling] Sure, you could've.
    America: Do I detect some sarcasm there?
    Captain America: Thankfully that was invented before the '40s.
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: Squirrel Girl takes down Ulth-Lah-Throth with a squirrel army attack, likening it to a distributed denial-of-service attack.
    Squirrel Girl: The average server can handle a few attackers, but when there are thousands attacking all at once, they go down!
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Ms. Marvel does a variant on this. Thor is paralyzed and clutching his hammer. She can't lift his hammer due to its magical properties, but she can lift him, so she swings him and hits Loki with the hammer.
  • "Lesson of the Day" Speech: Patriot learns and states a lesson about teamwork: "No matter how strong you are, you're at your best when working with your teammates."
  • Limited Animation: The shorts use comic book style art with motion effects. They have more animation than your average motion comic, with the characters' mouths moving as they talk, but action scenes are mainly limited to key frames and/or still components moving across the screen.
  • Mirror Character: Inferno's short highlights the similarities between him and the Hulk, namely their struggles with controlling their destructive power and how it leads the people around them to fear them and view them as monsters.
  • Secret Message Wink: In Quake's episode, she goes undercover to get close to the supervillain Taskmaster, and ends up having to help him fight Iron Man. When Taskmaster lets her finish him off, she stands over Iron Man, then winks before turning on Taskmaster.
  • Soda Can Shakeup: In Quake's episode, she uses her quake powers to discreetly shake Dugan's soda as he eats lunch, and it goes off in his face offscreen. At the end of the episode, she also does this prank to Iron Man. He complains that his armor will be sticky for weeks.
  • You Remind Me of X: Hawkeye tells Patriot that he reminds him of himself "back in the day," before he learned the value of teamwork.
