The Avengers/Ultraforce event was a two-part intercompany crossover between Malibu Comics and Marvel Comics. The first issue, Avengers/Ultraforce, was written by Glenn Herdling with art by Angel Medina and M. C. Wyman.[1] The sequel, Ultraforce/Avengers, was written by Warren Ellis with art by George Pérez, who also illustrated wraparound covers on both issues.[2]


The Asgardian god Loki enters the Ultraverse and collects the Infinity Gems from the possession of various Ultraverse's heroes,[3] also discovering the existence of a seventh Gem: Ego. Loki learns the Infinity Gems were originally part of a gestalt entity known as "Nemesis".[4] The Ego Gem possessed the Avenger Sersi when she arrived to Ultraverse from Earth-616.[5]

The slaying of Nemesis caused a reality-changing effect in the Ultraverse called the Black September.
