- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Black Widow kissing Bruce Banner after hitting him with a tranquilizing spike. It contributed nothing to the plot, is never mentioned again, and ultimately didn't matter as any Character Development it might've given Black Widow is rendered diddly-squat due to the character's death a few pages later.
- Bizarro Episode:
- The Punisher one-shot features a discipline-obsessed principal-turned-vigilante spanking criminals into submission. While the villain talks about a plot to take control of the rampaging Hulk mentioned in the other stories, that plan never actually happens, and the Punisher is never seen again.
- The Ghost Riders one-shot is mostly a story about supernatural sibling rivalry. While the Hulk appears briefly towards the end, none of the events of the story affect the larger arc.
- Breakout Character: While the series is largely forgotten today, some of its characters resonated pretty well with readers, most notably Spider-Man and Mary Jane (who would both go on to appear in Spider-Verse). Others, like Black Cat, Antoinette Stark, Doctor Strange and Tigra also developed small fanbases.
- Mangaverse Spider-Man was even given his own spin-off miniseries.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- Compare New Mangaverse to Ultimatum, really.
- Bruce Banner hooking up with Tony Stark's sister Toni, given their bromance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- Similarly, his kiss with Black Widow given their actual romance in the MCU.
- Carol Danvers becoming the Mangaverse's successor to Captain America, since the mainstream version later became Earth 616's successor to Captain Marvel.
- So Bad, It's Good: While in general the series is seen as So Ok Its Average if not worse, the series is considered great Snark Bait among certain parts of the fanbase.
- Xmen Phoenix Legacy Of Fire: The nonsensical plot, the female characters incredibly limited wardrobe, the multiple out-of-place hot-springs scenes, the Conspicuous CG; in short, there's a lot to laugh at for such a short series.
- The Ghost Riders one-shot, mostly due its horrible blending of 2D characters and beginner-level CG backgrounds, as well as its out-there tone, among other things. Some have argued that the comic may in fact fall under Poe's Law, and that the "unintended comedy" was intentional, and the "ironic" appreciation was actually the intended response.note
- So Ok Its Average: The general consensus on the Ben Dunn penned series. While the art is nice and the reimagined characters are interesting, the plot that surrounds them is very cookie-cutter, and due to the Loads and Loads of Characters, none of them are given enough time to develop.
- They Wasted A Perfectly Good Concept: The concept as a whole had some interesting elements, and could have worked if well executed.
- Uncanny Valley: The Ghost Riders one-shot makes heavy usage of CGI, and it's blatantly obvious that Satana is a Poser figure who was traced over, making her look jarringly out of place compared to the more traditionally manga-esque style used for Ghost Rider and Hellstorm.
YMMV / Marvel Mangaverse
