Official Handbook of the Ultimate Marvel Universe: The Ultimates & X-Men

    (Marvel, 2005)
™ and © Marvel Characters, Inc.

Heroes of the regular Marvel Universe have been poked, prodded and researched to the point of obsession in handbooks such as this one; now it’s time to look at the Ultimate Universe. This Ultimate handbook’s style and goals are the same as its regular Marvel Universe counterpart: to track and record the Ultimate Universe’s main characters, teams, events and places.

This particular handbook spotlights both the Ultimate X-Men and the Ultimates super-hero team. The main team members from each group are covered, along with organizations such as the Brotherhood of Mutants and alien groups like the Chitarui. Along with an explanation of each character’s origin and vital statistics such as real name and first appearance, characters are examined on a seven-point Power Grid that compares how their powers and intelligence stack up to other characters. Don’t look if you don’t want to know.
