  • Prior to being given an official reality number, this universe was referred as Earth-TRN123 as a part of our Temporary Reality Numbers classification system.
  • At San Diego Comic Con 2016, it was confirmed that while mutants still exist in this universe, they won't be appearing for the foreseeable future.[1]
  • Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Season 5 of Marvel's Avengers Assemble take place on Earth-17628 instead, as the former referenced events from Marvel's Spider-Man[2] instead of Ultimate Spider-Man.
  • Marvel Animation producer Harrison Wilcox later clarified that the entire Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy series, and not just its third season onwards, shares the reality with Marvel's Spider-Man,[3] making the 2015 episode "Road to Knowhere" the first appearance of this reality. However, he also acknowledged that events in the cartoon that were tied to Earth-12041 meant that the events of the first and second season could've happened in both universes, and suggested the possibility that Earth-12041 was changed into Earth-17628 when Loki undid the Beyonder's Battleworld.[4]
  • The reality number 12041 is a reference to the first appearance of the universe. Ultimate Spider-Man S1E01 first aired in April 1, 2012 (12/04/1).
