Marvel Ultimate Sourcebook (Gambit)

Postby Cinder » Sat Oct 22, 2011 7:12 am

I have been running a campaign in the Ultimate Marvel Universe, AKA 1610, for a little while now. I thought that people might like to use the resources that I have created. This first post will be a brief introduction, followed by a table of contents.

INTRODUCTION:

There are many reasons to base a game in the 1610. The most attractive of these is the fact that one has significantly less history to deal with.

The content of the Sourcebook will cover the 1610 beginning with the first issue of Ultimate Spider-Man (hereafter USM) and ends just before the Ultimatum with Ultimate Fantastic Four/X-Men Annual #1. I have decided to end before the Ultimatum because I felt that it was a very poor story.

The Timeline basically details every significant event that happened, listed in chronological order.

The Plot Hooks section will detail some ideas for adventures based on the happenings in the Timeline.

The Adventures section will be for some adventures that I have created and if time allows, recast the Ultimatum and Ultimates 3 as adventures which can, hopefully, end better than they did in the actual comics.

The Characters section will be 1610 builds. These will consist of conversions of 1610 characters, original characters, and original imagining or re-imaginings of Marvel characters that either never had 1610 versions or had poor 1610 versions respectively.

With no further ado . . .

The Ultimate Marvel Universe:

TIMELINE:

NOTE:

The events of the timeline below are an estimate, albeit an obsessive and well researched one, of the events of the Marvel Ultimate Universe. They are based on a reading order someone even more obsessive created.

It cannot be exact, because there are major inconsistencies in the books themselves. For instance, it is never winter, except in Ultimate War. Another example can be found in the Ultimate Spider-man line. The series begins and Doctor Octopus falls into a coma for three (3) months, from issue 4 to issue 14. Let us assume, however unlikely, that the events of issues 15 to 58 take place over one (1) month. In Ultimate Spider-man #59 four (4) months pass. In Ultimate Spider-man #61 two (2) months pass. This means ten months has passed. It also means that the reference in issue #72 claiming that issue #1 took place "nine months ago" must be wrong. This is just one of many that I have tried to reconcile as best as I can.

Also, I have altered the years so the origins of the major players, the X-men, Spider-man, the Ultimates, and the Fantastic Four would take place around 2008. The reason for this was to make the timeline “end” around the current day. That way one can start their campaign a few years in the past if they wish the events of the books to be taking place while they are playing or they can start afterward and use what has come as a history.

One must note that this timeline ends just before the events of the Ultimatum. The reason for this is that if one is going to use this as a setting, why begin after nearly half the characters have been killed? One can always do a small amount of work on one’s own to include it if they wish.

Also, if one wishes the events to have taken place as in the years that they did (i.e. Ultimate Spider-man Issue 1 was published in 2000) subtract six (6) years from any date after 1945. (i.e. the timeline says 2008 it is actually 2002).

Further a small portion of the information, like dates of birth, are educated guesses. The dates of birth are mostly based on the appearances, but in many cases the ages of the characters are referred to and are therefore exact. Also one must keep in mind that not only the super technology, but also the mundane technology like cell phones, that exists on these dates in “history” is more advanced than our universe.

Justification and Explanation.

Regarding the content of this timeline, it encompasses the following series and issues:

Ultimate Fantastic Four: 1 – 57
Ultimate Spider-man: 1 – 128
Ultimate X-Men: 1 – 97
Ultimates 1 & 2
Ultimate Origins
Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra
Ultimate Elektra
Ultimate Human
Ultimate Iron Man I & II
Ultimate Nightmare, Secret & Extinction
Ultimate Vision
Ultimate Team-up (1-3; 5-8; 10-16)
Ultimates Annuals 1 and 2
Ultimate X-Men Annuals 1 and 2
Ultimate Captain America Annual 1
Ultimate Fantastic Four Annual 1 and 2
Ultimate Spider-man Annual 1, 2 and 3
Ultimate Six
Ultimate X4 1 and 2
Ultimate War
Ultimate Fantastic Four/X-Men Annual 1 and 2

It ends, as stated above, before the Ultimatum and also does not include the Supreme lines.

Wasp’s age is 26 in 2008. This makes her born in 1982. She met Hank while she was in college. However Pym is shown to be in his teens in 1990 during the gulf war. Therefore they must about eight to ten years apart.

Betty Ross went to college with Wasp, so she is presumably the same age. However Bruce is already at least twenty in 1990, so he is much older than her as her birth date should be about the same year as Wasp: 1982.

The Elektra and Elektra and Daredevil books have internal contradictions. In the first issue of E&D, Elektra’s friend says that she has a class with Matt, but later in Elektra Matt is taking law school classes and has an internship with a law firm. As Matt goes on to represent Banner a few years down the road, it seems that it is more likely that he is in Law School, while Elektra is in undergrad.

The fact of whether humans created Mutants or whether they arose through evolution is a controversial topic in the Ultimate universe. Ultimate Origins introduces the idea that Weapon X program created the mutant gene, but every prior book has the evolution explanation. For instance in Ultimate War, Cap says that Wolverine had a healing factor before he went to Weapon X. I prefer the evolution explanation, but I have left the timeline vague on the subject. One can choose to portray the Canadian scientist, Abraham Cornelius, as “delusional” as Fury referred to him, or you can choose to interpret that this minor character created mutants. Totally up to you. But the “created” gene is stupid. And so are you if you like it. (Kidding.)

Issues 4 and 9 of the Team up series cannot be reconciled with the rest of the timeline. They show versions of the Fantastic Four and Iron Man that cannot co-exist with the later versions.

One of the most controversial (if anybody even cares) things about the outline may be that Peter progresses through high school grades in my version. The writers of Ultimate Spider-man wanted to have the first 72 issues take place over nine months. However at many points they progress several months in contradiction to this. What does their school year look like? They are always in school and never (with one exception) cold. I would have loved to go to a New York school that has no winter, but one that has no summer vacation would have sucked. So I just inferred that Peter is progressing in grades as we go.

There is a conflict between the Ultimate Origins story and the Ultimate Spider-Man canon. Origins seems to portray that Richard and Mary Parker died due to Dr. Banner's transformation into the Hulk; in the Spider-Man canon, it's clearly shown that Peter grew up at least 4-9 years old, before Peter lost his parents in a supposed plane crash. However, it seems to me that the possibility exists that they were merely injured in the Origins story and did not die until years later. While I agree that it certainly appears that they died, it is never stated explicitly allowing for the injury interpretation. This is how it is handled in the Timeline.

Sharon Carter says it is June, in USM 46. But the kids are in school. So June is one of only a few months that it could not be.

In issue 42 we see a flyer for Dazzler’s band. It says February on a flyer. One must assume this is an old flyer or it is unseasonably warm, because the X-men are all wearing t-shirts and shorts in northern New York.

The Wolverine versus Hulk has far too many continuity errors to exist within the regular timeline. In ten pages four months passes. That would be fine if not for the fact that the same period in Ultimates 2 is about two to three weeks. Ultimates 2 was published first and is more crucial to the universe, so I did not include Wolverine versus Hulk. I struggled with it and there is just no way it fits.

In issue 106 the month is April, Peter’s calendar says March, but he has not been to work for about ten days, so he has yet to flip it.

In the Ultimate Knights story arc Mary Jane says she is 16 and Peter claims that it is his sophomore year, but these statements and other ones here are based on the illogical attempts by the writers to claim that everything happened in one year (see above), so I ignored it.

The Ultimate Squadron Supreme lines are not included here. There is no particular reason for this other than simplification. One universe was enough. If one wishes to use a Fury disappearance hook, he should disappear around after or on April 1st and be saved/reappear before May 18th. (SEE plot hooks)

Bolivar Trask shows up in USM 125 a few weeks after the publication of UXM 87 were he dies. Although it is clear that 125 takes place about a month before 87, it seems strange that he is trying to get the venom suit back and in charge of his own company one month and the next he is doing the bidding of Fenris Corporation after his company collapses. The 87 Trask is portrayed as remorseful at his involvement in the mutant genocide while the 125 Trask is portrayed as a ruthless villain. It is not per se a contradiction, but it is close. One may choose to say that his company was failing and he tried one last ditch effort to save it: getting the suit. When he failed so did the company. Then the Fenris twins came along shortly after to recruit him.

NOTE:

I added a few things that are not canon, but that I thought were necessary. All these are in brown

Also the "President" that is shown is sometimes Bush sometimes not, but it is always an older white man. Obama losing to Robert Kelly was the way I handled it. Robert Kelly does not exist in the canon of the Ultimate Universe, but in some later stories that I don't include a vice president named Bob Blackthorne does appear. I made this the ticket as you can see. I am neither a republican nor a democrat at this point in my life, so no political motivation was involved. It merely seems the policies regarding Mutants are more in line with Kelly's tendencies in the 616, so I made the choice to do it this way. Of course you can change 2008 to 2001 in the timeline and then it would be Bush the whole time. It is up to you.

Those chasing her were palace guards bringing her home so that she could be forced to go through with the wedding that she fled. They eventually accomplish their task and take her back to the secret city of Atila. The Fantastic Four follow Crystal back to Atila were they try unsuccessfully to rescue her. Merely because the four breathed the air within the city, Black Bolt, their king, destroys it and moves the populace to another site. Crystal goes with them.

29– Johnny is found to have a parasite called Zvilpogghua inside of him. It is extremely dangerous and when it is “born” it will destroy humanity.

30– As Reed is unable to cure Johnny and he has no other resort he goes to Doctor Doom for help. Doom agrees to help Johnny if Reed switches bodies with him. Reed agrees. Meanwhile, the zombie Fantastic Four escapes containment and begins working on a portal to bring the other zombie meta-humans to this universe. Victor in Reed’s body fails at the spell to cure Johnny. The creature is purged from Johnny’s body and goes to Doctor Doom’s body which Reed now occupies. Reed, still possessing Doom’s body, defeats the Zombie Fantastic Four. He intends on taking the creature into the portal to the zombie universe and closing it, but Victor switches bodies back saying it is his duty to save the world. Victor goes through the portal, seemingly permanently, as the universes will not be mutually accessible again for several million years.

14 – They live in the “utopia” until The Searcher comes to Mr. Fantastic and removes him from the range of the King’s mind control machines. Once beyond the city, the King’s control over Mr. Fantastic ends and he and the Searcher decide to save the kidnapped populace. Mr. Fantastic and the rest confront Psycho-Man. Mr. Fantastic gains control of the mind control device and all of the other technology on the planet. It nearly destroys his mind, but with the help of the rest of the Four, he manages to control it. He teleports everyone back to Earth and edits all of their memories to forget the event. He also uses the power to make Psycho- Man a happy slave like his subjects had been. The Searcher leaves to explore the universe.

15– Mr. Fantastic continues to obsess over completing the Cosmic Cube. A colleague of Dr. Franklin Richards named Ivan Kragoff invites Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman to a symposium in Siberia. Mr. Fantastic is too caught up in finishing the cube, so the Invisible Woman goes to Siberia without him. However, the Symposium is a ruse. The Invisible Woman’s plane is shot down and she is taken prisoner by Kragoff and his assistant Sorba Rutskaya. Mr. Fantastic strangely slips out of his obsessive mindset and he and the other members of the Four go to save her. Once in Siberia they encounter a 1980s era Crimson Dynamo. After an initial conflict they work together to find Invisible Woman. Meanwhile Kragoff reveals his plan to attempt to use teleportation through the N- Zone to overwrite his dying wife’s genetic code and memories on a host body thus combining them into a new form and save his wife. He reasons that the Invisible Woman’s body is a perfect candidate for such a procedure, because her first trip through the N-Zone has already re-written her genetic code once. However, before he can finish the experiment he is murdered by his assistant Rutskaya. She means to insert herself into the experiment and gain the Invisible Woman’s powers. When Rutskaya learns that the Four and the Crimson Dynamo are on their way to save the Invisible Woman, she sends three soldiers in stolen Dynamo Armor to stop them. Before she can complete the process, the Invisible Woman uses her powers to interrupt it. The interruption causes several different simian DNA samples to be incorporated into the experiment. These are combined with Rutskaya and turn her into a gigantic, deformed, gorilla-like creature with multiple simian limbs and heads, as well as a single human head which retains Rutskaya’s insane personality. Invisible Woman escapes Rutskaya with the help of the talking bear Misha. Rutskaya sets the base to self-destruct. She fights the Four until the Invisible Woman introduces even more DNA into her unstable system. The self destruct goes off, and while the Invisible Woman manages to protect her allies, Rutskaya’s body is not found. The Invisible Woman hypothesizes that Rutskaya probably survived the blast using her intangibility.

16 – A translucent cube-shaped force field appears covering most of Manhattan extending out to New Jersey. Those inside seem to be in a form of stasis, frozen like statues. Mr. Fantastic hypothesizes that the cube is a self defense of his Cosmic Cube. He also reveals to the Invisible Woman that he feels that he was being compelled by a force outside of his control to finish the Cube. Halcyon forces have come to take the Cube, but Mr. Fantastic uses it to defend himself. When they are unable to break through the force field, they use a tractor beam to remove the whole force cube and Manhattan within it. Thanos’ forces intercede and teleport the force-cube to their home world Acheron. Once there the Four leave the force-cube to confront Thanos and his army. The Thing disappears. Thanos reveals that it was his will that was compelling Mr. Fantastic to complete the Cube and as a result he can also control it. Thanos and Mr. Fantastic face off in a battle of wills for control of the Cube. Thanos goes to Earth and begins to transform it as he wishes. The Thing awakes on another world. He finds out that he has be teleported there by Atrea, Thanos’ daughter. The Thing convinces Atrea to help him save the others. They begin by finding Mister Fantastic who has fooled Thanos into thinking he has been killed. They then go to Earth to confront Thanos. One there Mister Fantastic removes the removes the safeguards from the Cube that stop it from responding to random whim or fantasy. Thanos’ infatuation with death causes him to effectively kill himself. Mister Fantastic use the Cube to fix all of the Thanos’ actions and disposes of it in a time-rift creating a paradox in which the present events were the cause of Thanos getting the Cube in the past.

03 – The Invisible Woman is called to Nursery Two in Pine Buttes Oregon to investigate a mysterious giant shell. SHIELD agent Agatha Harkness, a social psychologist, is assigned to the Baxter Building to study the effectiveness and efficiency of the Fantastic Four. The Four go to assist the residents of an apartment building that has mysteriously become unstable because of random wholes being bored into it. Before they can help they are threatened by a group of seven heroes, Alpha Dog, Filament, Ghost-Ware, Neuropath, Penultimate, and Primal Screamer. The Seven say they will rescue the building and that they will fight the Four for the honor if necessary. The Invisible Woman and Mr. Fantastic talk about their relationship, but she is unsure that she is ready to reconcile with him. Harkness uses subterfuge to separate the Invisible Woman from the rest of the Four. She then has the Seven attack her. They defeat her and Alpha Dog makes her denser and throws her in the ocean. There she is saved by Namor. Namor tells her that the shell was the egg of something called a Hydra. The Hydra are a race of creatures responsible for the destruction of one of the districts of Atlantis and possibly the sinking of the entire civilization. They conclude that the seven meta-humans and Agantha Harkness are in fact a single creature, as the hydra has two forms, one singular and the other multifaceted. They discover that they reproduce by using an explosion of power as a catalyst. They reproduce in factors of seven and will therefore be an end to the world. Meanwhile the other members of the Fantastic Four realize something is amiss as well. They are defeated by the Seven and they kidnap the Human Torch. They take him back to Pine Buttes to use his powers as the catalytic explosion. However the other members and Namor come to rescue the Human Torch and fight the Seven. The Invisible Woman uses the unstable biology of the Hydra against them. She introduces chemicals into the air that the Hydra’s incomplete molecular structure bond with. Rather than borrowing power from the catalyst explosion they create the explosion themselves and are consumed by it. While most of the Four and Namor escape, Mr. Fantastic is left behind. The Invisible Woman goes back for him and save him with her shield. Inside the shield safe from the explosion they kiss implying that they may get back together.

Characters:

I will post three types of character builds for use in the setting. The first character type, called original characters, contains those characters that I have created based on my own ideas. These characters do not exist in any universe. They are my own or have been created with help from my players. The second character type, called non-canon characters, contain those characters that I have created as adaptations or reboots of existing 616 Marvel characters for use in the Ultimate universe. These characters are versions of characters I thought I could put a cool spin on, like Arcade, or ones I have fleshed out, like Unus. The final character type, called canon characters, merely contains builds of the characters as they exist in the universe. By calling them canon, I simply mean that they exist in the canon of the 1610 universe and the builds represent them in that form.

Note:

I use several house rules, most of which are adoptions of the 3e mechanics:

2.5 ed. Rules:

Affliction
Athletics
Dazzle
Extraordinary Effort
Fatigue
Fearsome Presence
Mind Control

Appearance: Killgrave appears to be a normal man in his late thirties. He has a fondness for the color purple. He wears stylish sun glasses tinted purple and always wears accents of purple in the expensive tailored suits he wears. A violet is ever present on his lapel.

Origin: The Killgrave family can draw its lineage back to kings of Eastern Europe. He claims that his love of the color purple is because his family wore the regal colors in their time as rulers. Sometime in the 1800s his family was deposed and most of his progenitors were killed. However, one child escaped and made his way to the Spanish colonies of California. He became wealthy and powerful, a status his family has enjoyed ever since.

Killgrave was raised in opulence attending all of the best schools. His education culminated in graduation from the Stanford Law School. He took over the family business and now runs the prestigious A-list talent and sports agency called Violet Talent Agencies, better known as VTA. His client list reads like a who’s who of Hollywood and the sports world. It is often wondered in Los Angeles how he gets so many top-tier clients. The truth is more sinister than even the most fanciful screen writer could dream up.

His dirty secret in a town full of them is that Killgrave has the ability to bend men’s wills to his own. He uses his power to sign clients and make deals all over the country. Most men would be happy with being one of the most powerful and wealthy men in country; Killgrave, however, is not most men.

He also uses his substantial powers of mental manipulation to control most of the organized crime on the west coast. His powers allow him to benefit from all of the benefits of being the Don, with none of the risk. The way he accomplishes this is by using his powers to control the mind of the actual Don of the West Coast, a mysterious man known as Roman Justinian. The Justinian, as he likes to be called, is not aware that he is not the true leader; in fact no one in his criminal empire knows that he is not the truly in control. Killgrave realizes that the time at the top of any such organization is short and is often ends in a violent death. The death of The Justinian would mean little to him, as he would merely control his replacement as well.

The Purple Man, a nickname spoken only out of his hearing, is one of the most amoral and dangerous men a group of heroes will ever encounter. He has no qualms about using or manipulating others, seeing it as an extension of the divine right of his ancestors. After all what other explanation, aside from his and his progenitor’s powers, can be given for men believing that another is meant to rule them because a man in the sky wants it to be so?

Background:

When SHIELD raided the abandoned building that once held Giggles Arcade in 1995 they were surprised at what they found. They had expected a group of sophisticated computer hacking terrorists. Instead they found only a boy of ten years old. He had used cast off computer equipment and technology to hack into an astonishing array of government and financial databases. They were further surprised that the boy had no identity. No birth certificate and strangely no name. When they questioned the boy over the next several months they found that they could not find anything out about the boy’s past. Every time he told them anything about his past the story changed each time. The nameless orphan had a new name and story for each caseworker.

As the boy’s talent was undeniable, they recruited him, despite his abrasive but charismatic personality, mysterious past and questionable psychiatric reports.

The boy, who the agents referred to only as Arcade because of his unknown origins, eventually proved to an incredible asset. He was cleared to work on a project called Item 412. The item was a suspected alien artifact that no other tech had made any headway on. Had the agents known Item 412’s true nature a person such as Arcade would never have been allowed access to it. Nonetheless they assigned him to it under close surveillance thinking he would have no more success than anyone else had. They were wrong.

After two years, Arcade found out how to activate the device. He managed to keep his discoveries secret from his supervisors. Even he did not realize the power of the artifact initially, but when he discovered its true potential, he knew that he must possess it for himself.

He escaped with the artifact and began his career as a highly paid criminal assassin.

Abilities:

Arcade is a genius with incredible knowledge of and gifts concerning technology. Arcade also controls item 412.

The artifact, known to SHIELD as item 412, is actually an ancient machine that creates a self contained pocket dimension. It was originally created to contain an alien culture’s greatest criminals. The device keys itself to a “warden” who controls it. This warden can control all aspects of the pocket dimension acting as a godlike entity within its confines.

Realizing the quality of the dimension’s inhabitants, Arcade found a way to reboot the device effectively erasing everything, and everyone, inside.

He then set about creating areas within the pocket dimension that would be fatal to those who entered it. It was the perfect way to get rid of his victims. He merely tricks the target into entering and lets his Murderworld, as he has dubbed it, do the rest.

The theme of the zones within his Murderworld are those of an amusement park. He has found a way to view the demises of his victims and takes great delight in watching the twisted fun house environment dispatch his foes.

However, despite his omnipotent control of Murderworld, Arcade has a compulsive need to create the scenarios within in such a way as to allow the inhabitants a chance to survive and succeed.

The device itself appears to be a metallic cane, much like a carnival barkers’.

It creates a one way portal to a predetermined zone within the Murderworld. These zones are all connected and an especially tough or lucky victim may elude one only to be placed in another. Defeating some of the zones will allow escape, but so far, to his knowledge, no one has escaped.

Unbeknownst to Arcade, two of his victims, a Scientist named Neville Chambers and his assistant Karen Locke, managed to elude their fate. They are still in a zone of the Murderworld and are trying to find a way out.

As mentioned above, Arcade has a compulsive need to give his victims a chance to elude his deathtraps. He believes that it is more fun if they have a chance and would consider it boring if he constructed the zones to be infallible.

It was for this reason that he placed some technological equipment in the zone to which he sent Mr. Chambers and Miss Locke. Chambers managed to jury rig some of the equipment to send a false signal portraying their deaths. Since that time, they have found a way to send a signal out of the pocket dimension. They hope that someone might detect the signal and assist them in their escape.

Note: This character is not to be confused with Arcade I. That character was colossally lame. A dot com millionaire who hated mutants because of a dead sister killed by them. Plus look at him:
