Assembled to take the jobs considered too immoral for public knowledge, these Ultimates won't quit until a permanent solution is reached – most likely with their target in a body bag. Initially formed to deal with the threat of the Red Skull
and Cosmic Cube
, the Ultimates' core group consisted of Black Widow, Hawkeye
, Red Wasp, War Machine and Nerd Hulk, – all following the orders of Nick Fury
. The older brother of Tony Stark
supplies the Ultimates with whatever weaponry they need for any given assignment, and Gregory Stark
doesn't mind spilling a little blood. Occasionally Fury will recruit others as new problems arise such as the Punisher and the original Hulk to deal with a supernatural motorcyclist known as Ghost Rider
. Soon after that incident, the Ultimates came into contact with an army of vampires while searching for an AWOL Nerd Hulk and discovered he was transformed into one of them.
