The Ultimate Superhero Universe, also known as USHU or Earth-USHU, is the crossover universe in which the Ultimate Superhero Universe game and comics take place. This reality shares history with several "Earths" from both DC and Marvel, but is still it's own continuity.

History

For the most part, an incomplete timeline of the (at least important) history of this universe.

NOTE: This does not account for every single detail, particularly not parts of real history regardless of whether they happened in canon or not. For example, events such as World War II, which still happened in continuity, are not directly mentioned here.

Influences

The universe is influenced by several existing realities in both DC and Marvel, which include:

  • Marvel
    • Earth-616
    • Earth-199999
    • Earth-13122
    • Earth-12041
  • DC
    • New Earth
    • Prime Earth
    • Earth-16
    • Earth-Teen Titans
    • Lego Batman

Of course, the universe is not based solely on these, nor does every part of each one's continuity play a part. For example, while most of Earth-Teen Titans would be considered canon, Teen Titans Go! continuity would not. Similarly, canon from Earth-13122 and Lego Batman is not part of continuity, as they are more of an inspiration.
