20DIDN'T WANT: THE ULTIMATES
This entry is specifically about the Ultimates, the Avengers analogue in the Ultimate Universe, but it could very easily be about the entire Ultimate Universe itself. Nobody really asked for an entire universe of characters who act antithetical to the versions of them people actually like and pretty much defeats
their symbolic purpose for existing.
Of all the characters to suffer this level of misrepresentation, the Ultimates probably get it the worst, with a jingoistic Captain America, suspiciously close Maximoff twins, a cannibalistic Hulk, and a Thor who was downright bro-y. For the most part, these characters were irredeemable and unlike Watchmen or The Dark Knight Returns, there’s no subversion at work here.
