A group of superhumans gathered by the mysterious woman named Kang in order to retrieve the Infinity Gems, apparently to use it in order to prevent the destruction of the universe.

She first freed Bruce Banner, who proceeded to destroy the Triskelion and steal five Infinity Gems from S.H.I.E.L.D. custody. He battled the Ultimates while Kang released Reed Richards, the Maker, with whom she apparently had planned their escape. Quicksilver retrieved one of the gems and gave it to Richards, who showed himself to the Ultimates.

The heroes barely managed to escape, but Captain America asked to be left behind in order to battle Richards, although he was defeated. Kang showed up and proclaimed they still had two more gems to find.[1]

Using numerous H.E.R.B.I.E. Trons, Reed forced global powers to negotiate peace, undid global patents and copyright standards (making any scientific progress to the public domain), liberated all Stark, Roxxon, Hammer and Osborn technology, removed financial blockage by attacking the World Bank headquarters, distributed Utopia's sentient seed, and deployed hybrid zero emission energy technology.

The seventh gem was revealed to be located in Tony Stark's brain, who was kidnapped by Quicksilver.[2] The Maker performed a surgery on Stark's brain while his H.E.R.B.I.E. Trons were trying to reach the Earth's core in order to acquire the final gem. Richards finally got the last gem, and left Tony Stark to die.[3]

Stark's consciousness was revealed to have survived electronically, and he rescued the Ultimates from the Negative Zone after infiltrating Reed's network.[4] Reed used a brain-washed Human Torch to retrieve the final gem, which was used by Kang to arrive to the aid of Richards when he was being outnumbered by the Ultimates.[5]

During a furious battle, Iron Man managed to get the Gems. But before any of the Dark Ultimates could retrieve it, an immense flux of energy echoed through time and space. Kang alerted that it was too late to prevent what she came to stop and vanished, stating she had to go back further in time, abandoning Reed, who was imprisoned in The Cube.[6]
