  • 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.
  • 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.
