First Appearance: Ruins#1 (August, 1995)

History:
(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - During World War II, Captain America allegedly introduced Nick Fury into eating human meat.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Interested in Astraea, which would not be ready to go until 1965, Reed Richards sought out astronaut Ben Grimm to pilot it. When Grimm refused to fly Astraea until they put lateral motors on it, the two physically fought, after which Richards talked some "tenure-hound" faculty named von Doom into flying Astraea. Richards, von Doom, and the Storm siblings stole Astraea and flew into a flashstorm of cosmic radiation. Grimm felt that if they had had lateral motors von Doom could have maneuvered them away from the storm. After the Astraea came back down, all aboard were horribly mutated and most, if not all, perished. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Genius engineer, millionaire industrial, and California's favorite son, Anthony Stark sought to use his skills to end the Vietnam War. 

    When the president sent the National Guard into California to suppress dissent and pro-secessionism, Stark tried to mediate, but he was clipped by shrapnel from a National Guard grenade. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Stark prevented the shrapnel from killing him by designing and wearing an armored suit, leading the press to call him "The Man in the Iron Mask."

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Donald Blake (apparently not a legitimate MD, having "struck off") "saw" the Norse deity Thor after eating fly agaric mushrooms in Scandinavia (the same type of mushrooms used by ancient Vikings to send themselves into berserker rages).

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Stark joined with the other Californian scientists, like Pym, and gurus like Stephen Strange, to form a revolutionary cell: The Avengers. Other members eventually (or originally?) included "a lovely woman with delicate wings," "the cold, young bowman" (presumably Clinton Barton) and all the others.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The National Guard remained in California, and secessionism became just another old idea.

earth-9591-hulk.jpg(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - On a road trip through Arizona, Rick Jones decided to stop and play guitar at a big "water tower" in the middle of nowhere, unaware that it was the site of a nuclear bomb testing. earth-9591-jones-hulk-bomb.jpg

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - The doctor involved with the testing rode a motorcycle out to Jones, futilely trying to warn him away. The doctor shoved Jones into a trench as the nuclear bomb went off.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Caught in the explosion's energies, the doctor's skin went black and dry before it cracked, and light shone out of him "like all of his meat was on fire." 

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Then the doctor started to swell, and tumors erupted from within him.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Despite having turned into a mass of cancer, the doctor survived. He was held under a vault under a lake and codenamed "Hulk."

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Speculated as having gone mad and wanting to know what it was like to breathe again, an alien silvered humanoid apparently clawed open its own chest to expose its lungs to the atmosphere; it swiftly died of shock.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - A series of Apollo rockets were sent to the moon.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <Three years before the main story> - The Supreme Intelligence directed the Kree Liberation Force (KLF) to "liberate Earth from its governments" and yoke it to Kree authority.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Arriving out of hyperport, the Kree ship swept around Earth's moon and were in the process of nailing down preliminary orbit when they encountered the corpse of a "silvered humanoid." The creature's energies negated the Kree's cloaking arrays. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Discovering this and working in unison, Earth's governments swiftly launched their nuclear missiles at the aliens.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Barely a tenth of the KLF survived, falling to Earth's mercy in drop-boxes.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The surviving members of the KLF were placed in a Kree reservation in the middle of a nuclear test zone in Nevada. 

(Ruins#2 (fb)) - Working freelance for the Daily Bugle to pay his college tuition and to care for "that poisonous old aunt of his," Parker majored in science. After irradiating a spider in an experiment, he was bitten and infected with some sort of mutant virus. He became infectious, but visited the Bugle before his rash showed, during which time he shook Phil Sheldon's hand, infecting him.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Shapeshifter Raven Darkholme (pretend there's an umlaut) became mentally unstable from being so many people in a short space of time.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - An unidentified being with magnetic powers utilized a home-made degaussing kit to suppress his magnetic fields.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton, and T'Challa des Wakandas of the Black Panther party were imprisoned in a San Francisco jail. 

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Clint Barton was executed on Haight Street by a Californian military advisor.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Donald Blake operated the Cult of Thor out of a cave system by Montauk, New York.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Ex-Avenger Wanda Maximoff-Lehnsherr turned state's evidence in return for immunity at the Department of Justice. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Emma Frost was the high priestess/manageress of the Church of the Next Generation, in which children were legally adopted from acolyte parents. The children underwent surgery to bring out "psychic abilities," and Frost took dowries from parents to fund the surgeries. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The White House was relocated -- presumably under the order of President X -- to the newly-formed District of New York. 

    The former Washington, DC was swallowed back by its state, and society deteriorated, with crime, homelessness, and drugs running rampant.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - A former photographer for the Daily Bugle, Sheldon gave up his job to write a story on how the rise of superhumans had all gone wrong. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <The day before the main story> - Matthew Murdock was struck across the eyes by radioactive material hurled from a crashed atomic containment unit in Central New York.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <The morning before the main story started> - Murdock died in-hospital from radiation burns and neural damage.

(Ruins#1) - Phil Sheldon watched from somewhere in California as the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants (apparently Captain America and Thor, and presumably Pym, Tony Stark, and the winged woman). Afterward, the Guard posed with Captain America's shield and Thor's hammer, both apparently have fallen to Earth from the destroyed Quinjet.

(Ruins#1) - Stopping in at a seedy bar to help swallow his pills, Sheldon encountered the alcoholic "Little Canuck," who showed off the bone disease in hands in exchange for drinks.

(Ruins#1) - Sheldon subsequently traveled to the Kree Reservation and -- after being forced to don a radiation suit -- interviewed Mar-Vell, learning about the Kree's failed invasion and subsequent internment. Acknowleding how the camp had broken them all and that it would be empty in 30 years, Mar-Vell told him to get out.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - President X authorized a new wave of airstrikes in the Genoshan Police Action (increasingly referred to as the Genoshan War).

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Rick Jones wrote Phil Sheldon and multiple other journalists, offering information about a "conspiracy in Arizona" that he wished to share before the CIA got him.

(Ruins#1) - Sheldon met with Nick Fury in the former Washington, DC; Fury warned Sheldon about attacting attention. Meanwhile, a French-speaking woman asked for help for her (naked?) brother Jean-Paul as she dragged him down the street.

    After fatally shooting a young, masked, red-headed woman named Jean who offered sex for money, Fury admitted to having killed Captain America last week with a patriot missile, and then shot himself through the head.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - At a boarding house in Chicago, Illinois to meet Rick Jones, Sheldon encountered a woman who tried to get him to pay a dollar to hear dark quotes from the fistula in the chest of her son, Daimon Hellstrom.

(Ruins#1) - A drug-addicted and likely cancerous Rick Jones told Sheldon of his encounter with the Hulk, after which Jones brutally beat his drug-addict girlfriend, Marlo, for mouthing off at him.

    Outside, Sheldon heard gunfire over by the riverfront and "something howling like a wolf on a high roof, and then coughing like a man with lung damage. As the gray snow fell, Sheldon recalled someone telling him that Chicago snow had skin scrapings in it.

    Tripping over the bullet-ridden corpse of a costumed man (the "Punisher"), Sheldon hoped to find answers to why the world had gone so wrong
earth-9591-magneto-planesmash.jpg

(Ruins#2) - Sheldon looked out the window and saw a woman (the Valkyrie) riding a winged horse, immediately after which Darkholme went mad (she was described as having had her brain implode), causing her face to hideously mutate.earth-9591-magneto-overload.jpg

    As the government agents took Darklholme away, one of them shoved a white-haired man out of the way, unwittingly disabling his homemade degaussing kit. 

    As energy glowed around the white-haired man, the agents announced the presence of a bomb, but then the agent's gun, plus apparently a total hip prosthesis or something, followed by his blood (plus one of Sheldon's fillings) were pulled towards the man's magnetic field. 

    After the agent suffered a massive neural hemorrhage (his brain appeared to come out of his mouth or somewhere else on his head) and an entire airplane was pulled atop the white-haired man, killing him. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - The nature of the degaussing device was subsequently determined. Sheldon's photographs of the magnetic disaster were taken by the government officials from the recovery team sent by the White House via helicopter.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Wishing to grant "the last request of a dying man," President X instructed Warden Fisk to allow Sheldon to see the "Shock Corridor" of his prison, but to collect his camera before he left so he could not bring out proof of what he saw. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Alicia Masters wrote to Ben Grimm, letting him know to expect a visit from Sheldon.

(Ruins#2) - Visiting a prison in Texas, Sheldon was greeted by Warden Fisk, who showed him Summers, Kitty, "Quickie," and "Nightcrawler." Fisk also told him of President X's actions before collecting his camera and sending him on his way.

    Later, as Sheldon took some time to gather his thoughts by a peaceful lake, an unidentified young girl saw that he looked all alone, brought him a flower, and invited him to have sandwiches at a picnic with her and her mother.

(Ruins#2) - Sheldon traveled via bus to the Quintano Carnival in part of the American desert. A makeshift circus ring was laid out on the desert floor. An attractive woman did something illegal with a python for 10-15 minutes; and "Saint John," aka Blaze, poured gasoline on his head, set it on fire, and drove around for hours in the desert, technically dead but still riding and screaming.

    Sheldon concluded that there wasn't a single event that had caused all of the problems, but that everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong. He resolved to write his book and perhaps show everyone what things could have been like.

(Ruins#2 (fb)) - Militiamen ("Bucky" Barnes, Creed, Monroe) were taken into custody by police following threatening behavior (which turned out to include cannibalism). Sheldon briefly interviewed them.

(Ruins#2) - Sheldon next visited Major Ben Grimm in his cabins in the Rocky Mountains. Grimm shared Reed Richards' activities, noting he had always felt things might have been different if he had flown the Astraea.

    Sheldon returned to New York City, having gathered his notes and completed his interviews, resolving to call his book "Marvels" and hoping to write it quickly. As he wished he had time to craft the book and make the best possible case of why the world had gone wrong, he considered that his time was limited because of Parker. 

    Having run out of pills on the train back, Sheldon planned to stop at the pharmacist later, but he suddenly collapsed and died, his research and photographs scattering as his briefcase broke open, floating off and scattering in the wind.

Comments: Created by Warren Ellis, Cliff Nielson, and Terese Nielsen.

    This opening quote from Ruins#1 sums up the differences of between Reality-616 ("Marvels") and Reality-9591: 

For every kiss, a bullet in the face...

    It continues (but I think that opening line really takes the cake): 

For every action, a reaction.
For every event, there exists in potential, a mirror event, an exactly opposite possibility.
If the world you know is one of Marvels, where heroic women walk invisibly through horror and men of fire ride the upper reaches of the air...
...then only a mistep or as stopped heartbeat away, is a world of Ruins.

    Sheldon referenced the paranormal stuff that had happened "since '61" as having always gone wrong. I would not consider references to real life events, such as the Vietnam War, to be topical for Earth-9591. I think they can be used as the temporal references between events in this reality. 
    On that note, Grimm noted that the Russians had finally got a guy up last month...in the real world, the Russians first had a man in space, Yuri Gagarin, in Vostok 3KA, on April 12, 1961...he so I'm not sure what Grimm's comment about the Russians is supposed to mean about the timeframe...or maybe the Russians didn't get a man into space until later...or maybe it referred to Russians landing on the moon...
or maybe he was just crazy,
    Regardless, Sheldon goes on to note how people had been touched by the paranormal "all through this decade."

    Somewhere in my notes -- or perhaps because I had relied on internet information, which I didn't realize wasn't always reliable when I started viewing it around 1998, and probably until like 2001 -- I had Crystal included as a member of the Avengers in the Ruins series. I don't see anything to support that...but maybe I'm missing something...

CLARIFICATIONS:
Earth-9591 has no known connection to:

The natives of Reality-9591 are largely alternate dimensional counterparts of beings from Reality-616, but we can't assume anything true of one version to be true of his, her, or its counterpart unless specifically stated in-story.


"angel"
see image here

(Ruins#1 (fb)) -  Pushed by a Secret Serviceman (who apparently had some sort of wings coming off his back, at least as seen on film), Xavier surveyed the new White House lawn in the District of New York. 

  He commented on the seemingly wings coming off the Secret Serviceman's back as apparently artifacts of the film.

--Ruins#1 

Note: This was apparently the counterpart of Reality-616's Angel (Warren Worthington).

    Other than that he was a Secret Serviceman serving under President X, we don't know anything else about him.


earth-9591-astraea.jpgAstraea

 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Astraea was to be the link between the early orbital capsules and later rockets; it would be able to fly, rather than just orbit and descend.

    Reed Richards was interested in Astraea, wishing to use it to study cosmic ray activity in local space, which orbitals would never reach. Though Astraea was built and fueled, it would not be ready to go until 1965.

    Not wanting to wait, Richards showed up at astronaut Ben Grimm's house on night, raving about his desire to steal Astraea and show them that all of the red tape was anti-science. Richards wanted Grimm to fly the ship, but Grimm argued that the ship wasn't ready; Grimm noted that he wanted to put lateral motors on Astraea, and it would take months just for the math to be done for this. Richards didn't listen to Grimm, they had a fight, and Grimm decked Richards. 

    Richards talked some "tenure-hound" faculty named von Doom into flying Astraea. 

    Richards, von Doom, and the Storm siblings stole Astraea and flew into a flashstorm of cosmic radiation. Grimm felt that if they had had lateral motors von Doom could have maneuvered them away from the storm.

    After the Astraea came back down, all aboard were horribly mutated and most perished. 

    The Storm boy caught fire at the cellular level, and he burned from the bones outward. 

    Richards' body stretched like rubber before rigor mortis set in. 

    The Storm girl was invisible, as well; as her eyes were light-reflective, she was blind. She tripped over her brother's body, and was presumably burned, if not killed, by it.

    Von Doom was reportedly mineralized, with his internal organs on the outside.

--Ruins#1

Note: Astraea would be the counterpart of the rocket that Reality-616's soon-to-be Fantastic Four flew into space to gain their powers. 

    As far as I know, Reality-616's rocket did not receive a name...or, at least, it was never called Astraea.


 earth-9591-avengquin-explosion.jpg

Avengers

Members (past and present): Clinton Barton, Wanda Maximoff, PymTony Stark, Stephen Strange, unidentified lovely woman with delicate wings;
    apparently Captain America and Thor

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Stark joined with the other Californian scientists, like Pym (who could become the size of skyscrapers), and gurus like Stephen Strange, to form a revolutionary cell: The Avengers. 

    Other members eventually (or originally?) included "a lovely woman with delicate wings," "the cold, young bowman," and all the others.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Ex-Avenger Wanda Maximoff-Lehnsherr turned state's evidence in return for immunity at the Department of Justice. 

(Ruins#1) - Somewhere in California, the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants (apparently Captain America and Thor, possibly Pym ("Giant-Man"), Tony Stark, and/or "Wasp"). 

    Afterward, the Guard posed with Captain America's shield and Thor's hammer, both apparently have fallen to Earth from the destroyed Quinjet. 

    Phil Sheldon wondered if that was the last Quinjet and how many of the Avengers were still alive.

(Ruins#1) - Nick Fury told Phil Sheldon "we killed America last week with a patriot missile."

--Ruins#1

Note: The counterparts of Reality-616's Avengers, this group was outlaws that were specific

    Per Phil Sheldon, "They were revolutionary heroes out of the wildest absinthe dreams of French literature."

    One of the characters listed as members, Maximoff is the only known survivor, as she turned state's evidence agains them.

    My index for this Ruins lists Crystal as one of the Avengers in Ruins#1. I don't know where I got that idea, as she isn't mentioned or shown at all. I have a vague memory of someone pointing her out...


 earth-9591-barton-death.jpg

Clinton Barton

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The "cold, young bowman" joined the revolutionary Avengers cell.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Clint Barton was executed on Haight Street by a Californian military advisor.

--Ruins#1 

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Hawkeye (Clint Barton).

Barton was never called Hawkeye in the story, but he obviously did have an "H" on his head.

   


 earth-9591-black_panther_party.jpg

Black Panther Party

   

 (Ruins#1 (fb)) - Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton, and T'Challa des Wakandas of the Black Panther party were imprisoned in a San Francisco jail. 

--Ruins#1 

Note: The information and text included here sums up what we know in this reality.

    In the real world, Bobby Seale and Huey Percy Newton were the co-founders of the revolutionary socialist Black Panther party.

    Obviously, in Reality-9591, T'Challa was a member of the party, and presumably a leading member, alongside Seale and Newton. 

    T'Challa obviously wore a costume similar to the Black Panther costume of Reality-616, but it is unrevealed whether he actually went by that alias, and/or whether he had a history and/or abilities similar to T'Challa-616.

    In Reality-616, T'Challa briefly changed his name to the Black Leopard to avoid connection to the Black Panther party; he didn't specifically oppose or support them, he just wanted to not be confused for or connected with them.


earth-9591-blake.jpgDonald Blake
Thor?

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Donald Blake (apparently not a legitimate MD, having "struck off") "saw" (channeled?) the Norse deity Thor after eating fly agaric mushrooms in Scandinavia (the same type of mushrooms used by ancient Vikings to send themselves into berserker rages).

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Donald Blake operated the Cult of Thor out of a cave system by Montauk, New York.

(Ruins#1) - Somewhere in California, the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants (apparently Captain America and Thor, possibly Pym ("Giant-Man"), Tony Stark, and/or "Wasp"). 

    Afterward, the Guard posed with Captain America's shield and Thor's hammer, both apparently have fallen to Earth from the destroyed Quinjet.

--(Possibly behind-the-scenes) Ruins#1; (pictured) Ruins#2

Note: Blake was intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Donald Blake, and presumably Thor as well. 

    I would ASSume the hammer the National Guardsmen claimed after the Avengers' quinjet was shot out of the sky would belong to Blake/Thor, but we don't know that for certain. The hammer The Guardsmen held looks like the traditional Mjolnir, while Blake was obviously holding a conventional hammer in the picture above, and he just looks crazy.
    There was presumably at least A Thor in the Avengers.

    There is not, however, any further information about Blake, Thor, and/or the hammer(s).


earth-9591-blaze-full.jpgearth-9591-blaze-aflame.jpgBlaze
aka
Saint John

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - As Saint John, Blaze set his head on fire and rode his motorcycle as part of the Quintano Carnival in part of the American desert.

    He had lots of facial scarring, and he had "dead eyes like a flagellant."

    He moved slowly and carefully, like a concentrating child...like his fingers wouldn't obey his brain without effort.

(Ruins#2) - When Phil Sheldon traveled to view the Quintano Carnival, "Saint John" did his trick.

    Blaze poured gasoline on his head, set it on fire, and drove around for hours in the desert, technically dead -- with facial fat flyiing off his torched head like hot rain -- but still riding and screaming.

    This was Blaze's last performance, as he died.earth-9591-blaze-face.jpg

--Ruins#2

Note: Obviously meant to be the counterpart of Reality-616's John Blaze, aka Ghost Rider.

    He could apparently survive setting his head on fire via some trick, until he went to far.

    There's no evidence he had actual superhuman powers or demonic abilities like Reality-616's Ghost Rider.


The Cape

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Major Ben Grimm rode in orbital capsules.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Ben Grimm was getting into engineering at "the Cape" and lecturing at the local university when he met Reed Richards and "the Storm kids." Richards was interested in Astraea, and when Grimm refused to fly it until it had lateral motors installed, Richards talked von Doom into flying Astraea. 

    Richards, von Doom, and the Storm siblings stole Astraea and flew into a flashstorm of cosmic radiation. Grimm felt that if they had had lateral motors von Doom could have maneuvered them away from the storm.

    After the Astraea came back down, the Storm boy caught fire at the cellular level, and he burned from the bones outward. Richards' body stretched like rubber before rigor mortis set in. The Storm girl was invisible, as well; as her eyes were light-reflective, she was blind. Von Doom was reportedly mineralized, with his internal organs on the outside.

    First discovering the Storm boy, the rescue time -- which included Grimm -- did not know his sister was there until she fell on her brother. They did not capture and photographs of von Doom.

    After the Astraea came back down, all aboard were horribly mutated and most, if not all, perished. 

--Ruins#2

Note: The Cape would presumably refer to Kennedy Space Center on Cape Canaveral in both the real world and Reality-616.


Captain America

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - During "the War," Captain America allegedly introduced Fury to eating human meat.

(Ruins#1) - Somewhere in California, the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants (apparently Captain America and Thor, possibly Pym ("Giant-Man"), Tony Stark, and/or "Wasp"). 

    Afterward, the Guard posed with Captain America's shield and Thor's hammer, both apparently have fallen to Earth from the destroyed Quinjet.

(Ruins#1) - After telling Phil Sheldon "we killed America last week with a patriot missile," Fury shot himself through the head.

--Ruins#1

Note: We would ASSume that this Captain America was meant to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Captain America/Steve Rogers, but it could well be William Burnside (the unstable Captain America of the 1950s) or someone else.

    Presumably "the War" referenced was World War II, but that's not confirmed.


earth-9591-marlo-face.jpgearth-9591-marlo-full.jpgMarlo
(presumably Chandler, possibly Jones...)

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Marlo lived with Rick Jones in a boarding house in Chicago, apparently owned and/or run by the mother of Daimon Hellstrom.

 (Ruins#1) - Journalist Phil Sheldon came to their Chicago boarding house to learn about the Arizona conspiracy Jones had written to him about.

    Jones introduced his "piece" Marlo (who laid on the floor of a filthy bathroom but cursed him nonetheless; "Piss off, spitbag."). 

    Jones warned Marlo that he would ignore that as they had a guest, but that she shouldn't make him put a hand to her; and Sheldon interrupted, asking about the Arizona conspiracy.

    After Jones told his tale, Marlo called him a "stupid junkie talking a bunch of stupid junkie spit," and Jones turned and prepared to deliver the promised beating. 

    Departing, Sheldon considered that he could do without the sound of splintering bones and damp screams.

 

--Ruins#1 

Note: In Reality-616, Marlo Chandler was the girlfriend of the Hulk in his Joe Fixit identity, and she later married Rick Jones. 

    Marlo-616 is a bit hotter than this crackwhore...


Church of the Next Generation

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Emma Frost was the high priestess/manageress of the Church of the Next Generation, in which children were legally adopted from acolyte parents. 

    The children underwent surgery to bring out "psychic abilities," and Frost took dowries from parents to fund the surgeries. 

--Ruins#2

Note: See the image in Emma Frost's sub-profile.


Cult of Thor

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Donald Blake "saw" the Norse deity Thor after eating fly agaric mushrooms in Scandinavia (the same type of mushrooms used by ancient Vikings to send themselves into berserker rages).

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Donald Blake operated the Cult of Thor out of a cave system by Montauk, New York. 

--Ruins#2

Note: See the image in the Donald Blake profile, although it really only shows him and not cultests.


Daily Bugle

    The staff of this newspaper included Gwen Stacy and Ben Urich, and prior to the events of these issues, Phil Sheldon and Peter Parker.

(Ruins#2 (fb)) - Working freelance for the Daily Bugle to pay his college tuition and to care for his aunt, Parker majored in science. After irradiating a spider in an experiment, he was bitten and infected with some sort of mutant virus. He became infectious, but visited the Bugle before his rash showed, during which time he shook Phil Sheldon's hand.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Sheldon contracted the mutant virus from Parker.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - A former photographer for the Daily Bugle, Sheldon gave up his job to write a story on how the rise of superhumans had all gone wrong. His friends thought he was nuts...

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS)  - Urich worked with photographer Gwen Stacy in reporting on President Xavier on the relocated White House lawn in the District of New York. 

--Ruins#1

Note: The Daily Bugle was the counterpart of Reality-616's newspaper publication by the same name. 

    Pretty much anything else is speculation.


 earth-9591-darkholme-mutates.jpgearth-9591-darkholme-normal.jpg

Raven Darkholme

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Shapeshifter Raven Darkholme (pretend there's an umlaut) developed multiple personality disorder (the term dissociative identity disorder is generally more appropriate, but the former is probably fair for Raven) from being so many people in a short space of time.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Raven Darkholme, having forgotten to take the pills that kept her sane, flew in a plane alongside Phil Sheldon.

(Ruins#2) - Sheldon looked out the window and saw a woman (the Valkyrie) riding a winged horse, immediately after which Darkholme went mad (she was described as having had her brain implode), causing her face to hideously mutate. 

    The plane had an emergency landing, and government agents (men in black) put Darkholme in a straightjacket of sorts. 

    Sheldon's left arm began to itch and he quickly took two pills, after which he cursed himself for not thinking to get his camera out.

    As the government agents took Darklholme away, one of them shoved a white-haired man out of the way, unwittingly disabling his homemade degaussing kit.

--Ruins#2

Note: Obviously intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Mystique.

    It's unconfirmed whether Raven died from this mutation...they took her away in a stretcher.

    No umlauts for you!


"Deathlok"

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Phil Sheldon somehow obtained a picture of a cyborg being.

(Ruins#2 - BTS) - Sheldon's photographs that flew out of his briefcase after he collapsed and died.

--Ruins#2

Note: He looks like one of the many beings known as Deathlok on Earth-616...giving the time period and the gross appearance, I'd go with Luther Manning.


 earth-9591-whitehouse.jpg

District of New York

 (Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The White House was relocated to the newly-formed District of New York. 

(Ruins#1 (fb)) -  Pushed by a Secret Serviceman (who apparently had some sort of wings coming off his back, at least as seen on film), Xavier surveyed the new White House lawn in the District of New York. 

    Urich further noted that this was when President X was to have been meeting to discuss the possible statehood of the District of New York.

--Ruins#1

Note: It is unrevealed whether the District of New York covered somewhere in Manhattan or elsewhere in New York City, or whether it was more like the property of the Xavier Institute.


earth-9591-enchantress.jpgEnchantress

 The Weekly World Enquirer had as one of their cover stories: "Porn Star "ENCHANTRESS": Did She Kill Producer With MAGIC?"

--Ruins#1

Note: The image and the story title are really all we have to go with. 

    The Enchantress is presumably meant to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Asgardian goddess Amora the Enchantress. Apparently she was a porn star and she was at least suspected of killing her producer, and she was suspected of doing so via magic. Whether she had actual magic powers, whether she went to prison, and what were the circumstances involving the alleged murder are all questions likely to remain unanswered.

    I'm really not sure what the image is even supposed to be showing. Presumably shadows of someone hurting someone or perhaps a corpse. I'm not even sure the blood seen in the image was part of the picture, as the whole cover shown was laying somewhere spattered with blood, so the blood may have been on the physical cover, rather than in the image. 


 earth-9591-fisk-face.jpgearth-9591-fisk-full.jpg

Warden Fisk


(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - When Fisk lived in New York, he allegedly acquired some fond memories of Phil Sheldon.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Fisk ran a prison in Texas.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - President X arranged for a number of mutants/paranormals to be contained in the Fisk's Texas prison's "Shock Corridor." 

    Per Fisk, the "Shock Corridor" had something to shock everyone: "The wretched, the hungry, the mutants, the cannibals, the bastards, and the weird.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - After "the Summers boy" incinerated his family with his eyebeams, Fisk and his associates (perhaps including President X) had to blind the boy (apparently actually removing his eyes) to get the eyebeams under control.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - When Kitty tried to use her intangibility power to escape, she accidentally turned solid again as she passed through the cell door; she lost three feet of intestine as a result (presumably she had to be cut off of the door).earth-9591-fisk-prison.jpg

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - "Quickie" had his legs cut off to prevent him from using his super-speed.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - President X sometimes visited the prison, sometimes just staring sadly at them and other times taunting them and leaving them sobbing. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Fisk normally did not allow journalists into his prison.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Wishing to grant "the last request of a dying man," President X instructed Warden Fisk to allow Phil Sheldon to see the "Shock Corridor" of his prison, but to collect his camera before he left so he could not bring out proof of what he saw. 

(Ruins#2) - Visiting a prison in Texas, Sheldon was greeted by Warden Fisk, who showed him the Summers boy, whom he taunted about having been blinded. 

    When Summers asked if the President was there and reached his hand out through the bars, Fisk smashed Summers' hand with his nightstick and then noted that the boy "don't remember too good no more." 

    Fisk continued on, showing Sheldon the ghost-like Kitty (casually swatting his nightstick through her intangible head), and unidentified blue, demonic-looking creature chewing on its own tail ("Nightcrawler"), and "Quickie," reviewing bits of their history.

    Fisk also told Sheldon of President X's actions and involvement before collecting his camera and sending him on his way.

--Ruins#2

Note: Warden Fisk was clearly meant to represent the counterpart of Earth-616's Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime. 

    We were not told his first name in-story, nor was there any reference to a history as the Kingpin.

    We don't know what led Fisk to leave New York and come to run a prison in Texas...perhaps President X arranged this.


earth-9591-frost-emma.jpgEmma Frost

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Emma Frost was the high priestess/manager-ess of the Church of the Next Generation, in which children were legally adopted from acolyte parents. 

    The children underwent surgery to bring out "psychic abilities," and Frost took dowries from parents to fund the surgeries. 

--Ruins#2

Note: Emma Frost would be the counterpart of Reality-616's Emma Frost, aka the White Queen. 

    We don't know whether Emma-9591 has telepathic powers like her Reality-616 counterpart.

    Again, we don't know anything beyond what this picture and caption state (as summarized above).


earth-9591-fury.jpgNick Fury

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - During "the War" (see comments), Fury allegedly was introduced to eating human meat by Captain America.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Phil Sheldon wrote to Nick Fury, requesting to arrange a meeting to gain his input on the state of things. 

(Ruins#1) - Sheldon met with Nick Fury in the former Washington, DC, thanking him for the meeting, and Fury warned Sheldon if he used his name in public again, he'd put a bullet in Sheldon's head. 

    Noting he had been spotted in two of the most security-sensitive areas of the country (California and the Kree Reservation), Fury warned Sheldon about attacting attention, noting that if they didn't already know he was dying they would have locked him up in California.

    When Fury asked Sheldon why he was wasting his twilight days on "this criss-crossing the country thing," Sheldon stated he was writing a book, and the paranoid Fury punched Sheldon in the gut, knocking him down, and shouting that he was clean, hadn't seen Captain America since World War II, and that he had no connection with the Avengers. 

    Sheldon explained he wasn't writing about politics, but instead about the "different ones," and that he had contacted Fury because he had known Captain America, Fury backed off, noting he hadn't seen America in a long, long time. Fury then asked Sheldon (see note) if he ever wondered whether all of the sick, weird stuff happening wasn't supposed to be something wonderful. Sheldon agreed, noting he was thinking of calling his book "Marvels." 

    Fury then aimed his gun toward Sheldon's head but instead shot a rabid dog approaching behind Sheldon. Fury continued that he did not get the feeling he was asking about, and that he liked things the way they were, as he didn't need to feel guilty about not making an effort to understand the world. "Like, this dog's got rabies. Do I care why? No. Easy."

    Advising Sheldon he was going to be in for a lot of pain, Fury assured him he wasn't going to stop him from interviewing people for his book; he and the guys at the agency would like reading something like that. Fury further shared an anecdote about America introducing him to eating human meat during the war.

   When a young, masked, red-headed woman named Jean offered sex for money ("I'll do it better than anyone for $20"), Nick noted her expensive clothes and asked her how old she was. When she told him, "Old as you need," he replied, "Doubt that," and fatally shot her.

    After Fury told Sheldon the country's mutating hadn't really reached New York yet and that you had to be a mutant to survive what was coming ("X knows, I tell ya"), Sheldon asked Fury if he was a mutant, and Fury replied that he was a moral mutant. 

    Fury then told Sheldon he was going to take a short nap, reminded Sheldon to remember that he was clean, and that "we" had killed  America last week with a patriot missile. 

    Fury then shot himself through the head.

--Ruins#1 

Note: The counterpart to Reality-616's elder Nick Fury (now the Unseen, or something like that).

    Presumably "the War" he referenced was World War II, but that's not confirmed.

    It seems to me that some of the dialogue was messed up between Fury and Sheldon...I think the part where he asked Sheldon if he ever wondered whether all of the weird, sick stuff happening wasn't supposed to be something wonderful was supposed to be Sheldon talking, because Sheldon just continues the discussion, while Fury argues that he doesn't really care.
    The speech balloon certainly faces at Fury, and it specifically notes Sheldon as the person being spoken to...but it seems like what Sheldon would have said, not Fury.


Genosha

 (Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - President X authorized a new wave of airstrikes in the Genoshan Police Action (increasingly referred to as the Genoshan War).

--Ruins#1 

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Genosha, a (at least formerly) mutant-enslaving nation off the coast of Africa.

    This version was only mentioned in the sentence above, which indicated President X led military attacks against the nation.


earth-9591-galactus.jpg"God"

     The Weekly World Enquirer had as one of their cover stories: "GOD FOUND DEAD IN SPACE."

    The cover further showed a picture of the apparent corpse of this being floating in Mars' orbit and noted that "TELESCOPE PHOTOS OF MARS DISCOVER CORPS (sic) OF SUPREME BEING IN ORBIT.

--Ruins#1

Note: Assuming the story (or at least the image) to be factual (and there's no real reason to suspect it as false), this presumably represents the counterpart of Reality-616's Galactus (Galan).

    There is absolutely no information beyond the image and the cover notes, but it is interesting to wonder what might have killed Galactus and left him floating around Mars. There was no Fantastic Four (or almost any other viable heroes) to oppose him, and even the team of Avengers had no real means of opposing a being of Galactus' power. 

    I'd have to guess that he came to Earth to consume it, but then something -- whether it was microbes in Earth's atmosphere, radiation from Sol (Earth's sun), insanity, or late effects of something (my guess would be that he got the equivalent of food poisoning from consuming some other world -- began to affect him, and he fled from Earth, only to perish close enough to Mars that he was pulled into its orbit. 

    Then again, there's no evidence that this "Galactus" (if that is actually his name) had anywhere near the level of power of his Reality-616 counterpart, or that he consumed the life-energies of planets like his counterpart.

    The "silvered humanoid" was also dead and floating in Earth's solar system (specifically around Earth's moon)...it is likely this being and the silvered humanoid were formerly affiliated, but, again, unconfirmed.


earth-9591-grimm&cabin.jpgearth-9591-grimm.jpgBen Grimm

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Major Ben Grimm rode in orbital capsules.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Ben Grimm was getting into engineering at "the Cape" (Cape Canaveral, Kennedy Space Center) and lecturing at the local university when he met Reed Richards and "the Storm kids." Richards was interested in Astraea, which was to be the link between the orbital capsules and later rockets; it would be able to fly, rather than just orbit and descend. Richards wanted to study cosmic ray activity in local space, which orbitals would never reach. Though Astraea was built and fueled, it would not be ready to go until 1965.

    Not wanting to wait, Richards showed up at Grimm's house on night, raving about his desire to steal Astraea and show them that all of the red tape was anti-science. Richards wanted Grimm to fly the ship, but Grimm argued that the ship wasn't ready; Grimm noted that he wanted to put lateral motors on Astraea, and it would take months just for the math to be done for this. Richards didn't listen to Grimm, they had a fight, and Grimm decked Richards. 

    Richards talked some "tenure-hound" faculty named von Doom into flying Astraea. 

    Richards, von Doom, and the Storm siblings stole Astraea and flew into a flashstorm of cosmic radiation. Grimm felt that if they had had lateral motors von Doom could have maneuvered them away from the storm.

    After the Astraea came back down, all aboard were horribly mutated and most, if not all, perished. 

    First discovering the Storm boy, the rescue time -- which included Grimm -- did not know the sister (who was invisible) was there until she fell on her burning brother. They did not capture any photographs of von Doom.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Alicia Masters wrote to Ben Grimm, letting him know to expect a visit from Sheldon.

 (Ruins#2) - Sheldon next visited Major Ben Grimm in his cabins in the Rocky Mountains. Grimm shared Reed Richards' activities, noting he had always felt things might have been different if he had flown the Astraea.

--Ruins#2

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Ben Grimm, aka the Thing.

    Obviously he did not mutate into the Thing in this reality.

    That's Grimm's "Screw Communism" lighter you can see in the image above Reed Richard's normal face.


Daimon Hellstrom

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Phil Sheldon arrived at a boarding house in Chicago, Illinois to meet Rick Jones.

    The door to the boarding house was answered by a woman holding a gray baby with a fistula in its chest.

    For a dollar, the woman offered to allow Sheldon to hear the fistula say, "Our lord is dead." 

    As Sheldon edged past and upstairs, the woman screamed to Sheldon not to forget her baby's name (Daimon Hellstrom), as he would be the messiah one day.

--Ruins#1

Note: Neither Hellstrom nor his mother were seen on panel; the events were mentioned by Phil Sheldon.

    Daimon Hellstrom is obviously intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Daimon Hellstrom (aka Son of Satan, Hellstorm, etc.), but we have no idea whether he was the son of a demon, whether he had magical powers, or whether he just had a birth defect and his woman could throw her voice.


earth-9591-jones-hulk-banner-cycle.jpgearth-9591-banner-explosion.jpgHulk

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - On a road trip through Arizona, Rick Jones decided to stop at a big "water tower" in the middle of nowhere and play his guitar, unaware that it was the site of a nuclear bomb testing.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - The doctor involved with the testing rode a motorcycle out to Jones, who could only hear "test" and "trench." 

    As the "water tower" started to spark, Jones intended to punch what he saw as an establishment Nazi telling him he couldn't be there until he saw the panic in the doctor's eyes. 

    Screaming, "It's a bomb," the Doctor shoved Jones into a trench just as the nuclear bomb went off.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Caught in the explosion's energies, the doctor's skin went black and dry before it cracked, and light shone out of him "like all of his meat was on fire." 

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Then the doctor started to swell, and tumors erupted from within him.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Despite having turned into a mass of cancer, the doctor survived. He was held under a vault under a lake and codenamed "Hulk."

--Ruins#1

Note: The bomb and the Hulk's mutated form are available here: There wasn't enough room in the sub-profile for them...plus, the main profile needs some meat, too...

    While obviously intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Hulk (Bruce Banner), I don't think the doctor was ever named in-story...he was codenamed the Hulk after he was placed in the vault under a lake.

    The Hulk was still alive when imprisoned there, but we don't know how long he survived or if he still lives...

    A vault under a lake sounds a bit like Area 51, but who knows...


earth-9591-jean.jpgearth-9591-jean-dead.jpgJean

(Ruins#1) - As Phil Sheldon and Nick Fury spoke in Washington (the former District of Columbia), a young, masked, red-headed woman named Jean offered sex for money:

    "I'll do it better than anyone for $20"

    Nick noted her expensive clothes and asked her how old she was. 

    When she told him, "Old as you need," he replied, "Doubt that," and fatally shot her.

 

--Ruins#1

Note: Obviously intended to be the counterpart of Earth-616's Jean Grey, aka Marvel Girl (and Phoenix), there's no confirmation of her last name, and/or whether she had psychic powers. 

    In this reality, if I had to guess, she might have used her powers, if she had them, like Bette from the X-Ranch.


 earth-9591-jeanpaul.jpg

Jean-Paul
and his sister (presumably Jean-Marie)

(Ruins#1) - As Phil Sheldon and Nick Fury spoke in Washington (the former District of Columbia), a French-speaking woman asked for help for her poor (apparently conjoined, and possibly naked?) brother Jean-Paul as she dragged him down the street.

    "Jean-Paul! Allez! Oh, mon pauvre frere...m'aider avec mon frere."

     They appeared to be conjoined at the elbow (her left and his right)

--Ruins#1

Note: Jean-Paul and his French-speaking sister almost certainly were meant to represent the counterparts of Earth-616's Jean-Paul and Jean-Marie Beaubier, also known as Northstar and Aurora.

    Whether the woman was named Jean-Marie and whether their last names were Beaubier (and/or whether Jean-Paul grew up with the last name Martin) is unconfirmed. 

    There's not evidence for or against that they possessed speed, flight, and/or light powers like their Earth-616's counterpart.

    Again, there's no other information beyond the image and the text above.


earth-9591-jones-rick-face.jpg

earth-9591-jones-rick-youth.jpgRick Jones

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - On a road trip through Arizona, Rick Jones ("with a head full of Keruoac"; see comments) decided to stop at a big "water tower" in the middle of nowhere, unaware that it was the site of a nuclear bomb testing. 

    Rick sat down with his guitar and "made like Woody Guthrie under a sky gone tense, like before a thunderstorm." He considered pasting a sign on his guitar like Guthrie's "This machine kills fascists" sign.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - The doctor involved with the testing rode a motorcycle out to Jones, who could only hear "test" and "trench." 

    Not appreciating the situation, Jones planned to hit the "establishment Nazi" coming out to tell him he couldn't sit there. 

    As the "water tower" started to spark, Jones still intended to punch the pus out of "Goebbels" until he saw the panic in his eyes. 

    As the doctor screamed, "It's a bomb" and shoved him into a trench as the nuclear bomb went off, Jones thought again of Woody Guthrie's sign.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Caught in the explosion's energies, the doctor's skin went black and dry before it cracked, and light shone out of him "like all of his meat was on fire." earth-9591-jones-rick-full.jpg

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Then the doctor started to swell, and tumors erupted from within him.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Despite having turned into a mass of cancer, the doctor survived. He was held under a vault under a lake and codenamed "Hulk."

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Rick lived with Marlo in a boarding house in Chicago, apparently owned and/or run by the mother of Daimon Hellstrom.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Rick Jones wrote Phil Sheldon and multiple other journalists, offering information about a "conspiracy in Arizona" that he wished to share before the CIA got him.

 (Ruins#1) - As Sheldon knocked at his door in a Chicago boarding house, Rick Jones answered that he wasn't in, but then admitted his identity and welcomed in Sheldon after the reporter revealed his name and explained that Jones had written to him. 

    Jones introduced his "piece" Marlo (who laid on the floor of a filthy bathroom but cursed him nonetheless). Jones warned Marlo that he would ignore that as they had a guest, but that she shouldn't make him put a hand to her; and Sheldon interrupted, asking about the Arizona conspiracy.

    After Jones told his tale, Marlo called him a "stupid junkie talking a bunch of stupid junkie spit," and Jones turned and prepared to deliver the promised beating. 

    Departing, Sheldon noted that while this certainly sounded like a junkie's tale, Jones was drinking "liquid morphine" (see note), which was not a junkie's drink and was instead used to blot out the pain of cancer. 

    Sheldon considered that he could do without the sound of splintering bones and damp screams.

--Ruins#1 

Note:  Obviously intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Rick Jones, we don't know for sure what else he shares with his counterpart, other than being saved from the bomb by the scientist who became the Hulk.

    Sheldon suspected Jones' use of "liquid morphine" (I don't know whether he was drinking a liquid morphine formulation, or whether it was just a euphemism for alcohol) indicated that Jones was trying to drown out his cancer pain. It makes sense that just being in a trench a couple feet deep when a radioactive bomb went off wouldn't protect you from the radiation.

    I don't know whether "a head full of Keruoac" refers to being inspired by the beat(nik) writer Jack Keruoac, or if he was drunk and referencing Keruoac's lifelong heavy drinking


earth-9591-kitty-back.jpgearth-9591-kitty-face.jpgKitty

    Presumably a mutant, Kitty could become ghost-like and intangible, but she could not completely control her state of tangibility.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - When Kitty tried to use her intangibility power to escape Fisk's prison's Shock Corridor, she accidentally turned solid again as she passed through the cell door; she lost three feet of intestine as a result (presumably she had to be cut off of the door).

(Ruins#2) - Warden Fisk showed journalist Phil Sheldon the Shock Corridor, during which Fisk casually swatted his nightstick through  the ghost-like Kitty's intangible head.

    --Ruins#2

Note: Kitty would most likely be the counterpart of Reality-616's Katherine "Kitty" Pryde (aka Sprite, Ariel, Shadowcat), although she was never named beyond "Kitty" in-story.


 

earth-9591-kree.jpgearth-9591-kree_reservation-child.jpgKree

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <Three years before the main story> - The Supreme Intelligence directed the Kree Liberation Force (KLF) to "liberate Earth from its governments" and yoke it to Kree authority.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - The KLF's cloaking areas were negated by the unexpected corpse of a "silvered humanoid," after which Earth's governments swiftly launched their nuclear missiles at the aliens.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Crashing to Earth, barely a tenth of the KLF survived.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The surviving KLF members were placed in a Kree reservation in Nevada. 

    Most were dying of cancer or other radiation-caused disease.

(Ruins#1) - Phil Sheldon traveled to the Kree Reservation and interviewed Mar-Vell.

--Ruins#1 

Note: In Reality-616, the Kree originated in the Greater Magellanic Cloud. 

    We don't have images of the non-mutated Kree, but there are blue (full-blooded Kree) and pink (hybrids involving mating with pink ("Caucasian")-skinned aliens). 

        That seems to be the case in Reality-9591 as well, as many of the characters are blue-skinned, but Mar-Vell appeared to have pink skin.

    We don't know the fates of the Kree off-Earth. We don't know if they had the same catastrophic failures and twistings of events as did the residents of Earth.


 earth-9591-klf-nuked.jpgearth-9591-kree_liberation_force.jpg

Kree Liberation Force

 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <Three years before the main story> - The Supreme Intelligence directed the Kree Liberation Force (KLF) to "liberate Earth from its governments" and yoke it to Kree authority.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The KLF proudly sang songs as they lifted off for intersidereal transfer.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Arriving out of hyperport, the Kree ship swept around Earth's moon and the KLF was in the process of nailing down preliminary orbit when they encountered the corpse of a "silvered humanoid." Although deceased, the creature's energies negated the Kree's cloaking arrays. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Discovering this and working in unison, Earth's governments swiftly launched their nuclear missiles at the aliens.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - The Kree had barely realized their visibility when the nuclear missiles detonated. Barely a tenth of the KLF survived, falling to Earth's mercy in drop-boxes.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The surviving members of the KLF were placed in a Kree reservation in the middle of a nuclear test zone in Nevada. While it was both punishment and reminder to the proud warriors imprisoned there, none of the children knew why they were there. The Kree were denied their medicines, and the soldiers refused to remove the Kree who died, forcing the survivors to burn them in piles. All of the Kree eventually developed cancer.

    The children born there -- with only 1 out of 8 surviving -- knew even less, as the Kree did not teach their children their failures.

    Though no one listened when Mar-Vell argued that he was wrong to defend humanity's independence, he eventually became the interlocutor of the interned KLF.

(Ruins#1) - Phil Sheldon traveled to the Kree Reservation and -- after being forced to don a radiation suit -- interviewed Mar-Vell, learning about the Kree's failed invasion and subsequent internment. 

    Acknowleding how the camp had broken them all and that it would be empty in 30 years, Mar-Vell told him to get out.

--Ruins#1 


 

earth-9591-kree_reservation.jpgearth-9591-kree_reservation-fence.jpgKree reservation

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - After crashing to Earth following a nuclear strike by united forces of Earth, the surviving 10% of the members of the Kree Liberation Front were placed in a Kree reservation in the middle of a nuclear test zone in Nevada. 

    While it was both punishment and reminder to the proud warriors imprisoned there, none of the children knew why they were there. 

    The Kree were denied their medicines, and the soldiers refused to remove the Kree who died, forcing the survivors to burn them in piles. 

    All of the Kree eventually developed cancer.

    The children born there -- with only 1 out of 8 surviving -- knew even less, as the Kree did not teach their children their failures.

    Mar-Vell eventually became the interlocutor of the interned KLF.

    Acknowleding how the camp had broken them all and that it would be empty in 30 years, Mar-Vell told him to get out.

Note: There is not a counterpart of this Kree reservation in Reality-616.


 

earth-9591-little_canuck.jpgearth-9591-little_canuck-face-bones.jpg"Little Canuck"

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Suffering from an unspecified bone disease, the unidentified Canadian had bones sticking through his hands. 

    He apparently hung out in a seedy bar in California, desperate for drinks, which the bartender sometimes gave him in exchange for showing customers his hands. 

(Ruins#1) - When Phil Sheldon stopped in the bar to get some orange juice to wash down his pills, the Canadian accosted Sheldon, telling Sheldon to buy him a drink or he would kill Sheldon. 

    Telling Sheldon not to pay any attention to "Little Canuck," the bartender explained that the Canadian was just cranky because of his bone disease, and he calmed down the Canuck, getting him to show Sheldon the bone his hand.

    Laughing, the bartender reminded the "Little Canuck" he had promised to give him a drink for showing the customer his hands, but he clarified that it would be a small drink.

--Ruins#1 

Note: It's really hard to see what's going on in the image showing his hand, but it looks like he has blunt bones sticking out through the skin, and that perhaps the tissue is chronically infected due to the open wounds around the exposed bone. I don't know whether these are just defective/useless versions of claws, or whether his metacarpals are sticking through the skin. If the latter were the case, the bones in his digits would essentially be dislocated from /not connected to the bones in his hands; I wouldn't think he could even hold a drink in his hand.

    Obviously, this is the counterpart to Reality-616's Wolverine (James Howlett/Logan), but he didn't receive any name beyond the taunting "Little Canuck" he received from the bartender.


 earth-9591-magneto-bump.jpg

earth-9591-magneto-overload-face.jpgmagnetic hippie

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - An unidentified being with magnetic powers utilized a home-made degaussing kit to suppress his magnetic fields.

(Ruins#2) - As the government agents took Darkholme away following the plane's landing, one of them shoved a white-haired man out of the way, unwittingly disabling his homemade degaussing kit. 

    As energy glowed around the white-haired man, the agents announced the presence of a bomb, but then the agent's gun, plus apparently a total hip prosthesis or something, followed by his blood (plus one of Sheldon's fillings, which smashed through two good teeth en route) were pulled towards the man's magnetic field. 

    After the agent suffered a massive neural hemorrhage (his brain appeared to come out of his mouth or somewhere else on his head) and an entire airplane was pulled atop the white-haired man, presumably killing him. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - The nature of the degaussing device was subsequently determined. Sheldon's photographs of the magnetic disaster were taken by the government officials from the recovery team sent by the White House via helicopter.

--Ruins#1 

Note: This is obviously intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Magneto (Max Eisenhardt, aka Erik Magnus Lehnsherr), but he didn't receive any name whatsoever in this story. He was just called a "hippie."

    We don't know why he was out on the tarmac in his trenchcoat, and we probably never will.

    Additional images of the magnetic hippie can be seen in the main image and here.


 

earth-9591-mar-vell-upper.jpgearth-9591-mar-vell-face.jpgMar-Vell

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <Three years before the main story> - The Supreme Intelligence directed the Kree Liberation Force (KLF) to "liberate Earth from its governments" and yoke it to Kree authority.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - A dissident, Mar-Vell argued against this liberation, standing for humanity's self-determination.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The KLF proudly sang songs as they lifted off for intersidereal transfer.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Arriving out of hyperport, the Kree ship swept around Earth's moon and were in the process of nailing down preliminary orbit when they encountered the corpse of a "silvered humanoid." Although deceased, the creature's energies negated the Kree's cloaking arrays. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Discovering this and working in unison, Earth's governments swiftly launched their nuclear missiles at the aliens.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - The Kree had barely realized their visibility when the nuclear missiles detonated. Barely a tenth of the KLF survived, falling to Earth's mercy in drop-boxes.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The surviving members of the KLF were placed in a Kree reservation was placed in the middle of a nuclear test zone in Nevada. While it was both punishment and reminder to the proud warriors imprisoned there, none of the children knew why they were there. The Kree were denied their medicines, and the soldiers refused to remove the Kree who died, forcing the survivors to burn them in piles. All of the Kree eventually developed cancer.earth-9591-mar-vell-face-straight-uberclose.jpg

    The children born there -- with only 1 out of 8 surviving -- knew even less, as the Kree did not teach their children their failures.

    Though no one listened when Mar-Vell argued that he was wrong to defend humanity's independence, he eventually became the interlocutor of the interned KLF.

(Ruins#1) - Phil Sheldon traveled to the Kree Reservation and -- after being forced to don a radiation suit -- interviewed Mar-Vell, learning about the Kree's failed invasion and subsequent internment. 

    Acknowleding how the camp had broken them all and that it would be empty in 30 years, Mar-Vell told him to get out.

--Ruins#1 

Note: Obviously the counterpart of Reality-616's Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell).


Alicia Masters

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Alicia Masters wrote to Ben Grimm, letting him know to expect a visit from Sheldon.

--Ruins#2

Note: Obviously the counterpart of Reality-616's blind sculptress Alicia Masters.

    We don't know if she's blind or a sculptress...just that she knew Grimm well enough to write to him...and Phil Sheldon knew her and knew that she could contact Grimm.


 earth-9591-maximoff-wanda.jpg

Wanda Maximoff-Lehnsherr

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Ex-Avenger Wanda Maximoff-Lehnsherr turned state's evidence in return for immunity at the Department of Justice. 

 

--Ruins#1

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Scarlet Witch. 

    She wore a similar costume, but we don't know if she used that name or not.

    She is presumably the sister of "Quickie," but who knows if she was the daughter of the counterpart of "Magneto" in this reality or not?


earth-9591-militiamen.jpgearth-9591-militiamen-skull.jpgMilitiamen

Membership: "Bucky" Barnes, Creed, Monroe

    They were described as unashamed fascists with cannibal leanings, particularly Creed.

(Ruins#2 (fb)) - The Militiamen were taken into custody by police following threatening behavior. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Sheldon briefly interviewed them.

    Monroe was quoted as saying, "Hitler was a great man with said failing."

    Barnes spewed sexual obscenities until  he was sedated.

--Ruins#2earth-9591-militiamen-close.jpg

Note: Barnes would be the counterpart of Reality-616's James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes, aka Bucky (the partner of Captain America/Steve Rogers during World War II), Winter Soldier, and Captain America. 

        In Reality-9591, we only know him as "Bucky" Barnes, and we don't know for sure whether he was involved with Captain America, active in World War II, etc.

    Creed would be the counterpart of Reality-616's Victor Creed, aka Sabretooth. 

        He only got a last name in his brief mention here, and while he was apparently cannibalistic, we don't know whether he had any super-powers such as his feral abilities, claws, etc.

    Monroe would be the counterpart of Reality-616's Jack Monroe, aka Bucky (the partner of the 1950s Captain America/William Burnside) and Nomad. 

        He only got a last name in his brief mention here, and we don't know whether he had other identities and/or whether he was active in the 1950s or not.


 

earth-9591-murdock.jpgMatt Murdock

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <The day before the main story> - Matthew Murdock was struck across the eyes by radioactive material hurled from a crashed atom containment unit in Central New York (see comments).

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <The morning before the main story started> - Murdock died in-hospital from radiation burns and neural damage.

 

--Ruins#1 

Note: Murdock is referred to as "young hero," presumably because he was in the act of saving a blind man when he was injured.

    Obviously, in Reality-9591, Murdock never became Daredevil...although he could have still been called that as a youth...like his Earth-616 counterpart.


 

earth-9591-national_guard.jpgearth-9591-national_guard-pose.jpgNational Guard

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - When the president sent the National Guard into California to suppress dissent and pro-secessionism, Stark tried to mediate, but he was clipped by shrapnel from a National Guard grenade. 

    Stark prevented the shrapnel from killing him by designing and wearing an armored suit, leading the press to call him "The Man in the Iron Mask")

(Ruins#1) - Somewhere in California, the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants (apparently Captain America and Thor, possibly Pym ("Giant-Man"), Tony Stark, and/or "Wasp"). 

    Afterward, the Guard posed with Captain America's shield and Thor's hammer, both apparently have fallen to Earth from the destroyed Quinjet.

--Ruins#1

    In Reality-616, the National Guard is more of the enforcement team of a more fascist government...they're not like the real world National Guard or its Reality-616 counterpart. 

    You can Google the National Guard for more information


 earth-9591-nightcrawler.jpg

unidentified blue, demonic-looking creature

(Ruins#2) - Warden Fisk showed journalist Phil Sheldon the Shock Corridor of his Texas prison, during which they saw an unidentified blue, demonic-looking creature chewing on its tail.

--Ruins#2

Note: Clearly intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner), this character did not receive a name or any history or description beyond the one image.

    The creature is likely a mutant, and perhaps had some association with President X before it was incarcerated.

    We don't know if the creature can teleport (perhaps it had a partial lobotomy or shock therapy or something to prevent it from accessing such power).



earth-9591-presidentx.jpgPresident X

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - President X arranged for a number of mutants/paranormals to be contained in the Fisk's Texas prison's "Shock Corridor." 

    Per Fisk, the "Shock Corridor" had something to shock everyone: "The wretched, the hungry, the mutants, the cannibals, the bastards, and the weird.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - After "the Summers boy" incinerated his family with his eyebeams, Fisk and his associates (perhaps including President X) had to blind the boy (apparently actually removing his eyes) to get the eyebeams under control.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - "Quickie" had his legs cut off to prevent him from using his super-speed.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - President X sometimes visited the prison, sometimes just staring sadly at them and other times taunting them and leaving them sobbing. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - While visiting the prison, President X once dropped his pants and screamed at them, "You all came from this!"

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Wishing to grant "the last request of a dying man," President X instructed Warden Fisk to allow Phil Sheldon to see the "Shock Corridor" of his prison, but to collect his camera before he left so he could not bring out proof of what he saw. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - President X had the White House (and apparently its lawn) relocated to the newly-formed District of New York. 

(Ruins#1 (fb)) -  Pushed by a Secret Serviceman, Xavier surveyed the new White House lawn in the District of New York. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Gwen Stacy caught a photograph of the serviceman pushing President X, and Ben Urich reported this as the first siting of President X since the White House's relocation. 

    Urich further noted that this was when President X was to have been meeting to discuss the possible statehood of the District of New York.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - President X authorized a new wave of airstrikes in the Genoshan Police Action (increasingly referred to as the Genoshan War).

(Ruins#1 - BTS) - Fury told Sheldon the country's mutating hadn't really reached New York yet and that you had to be a mutant to survive what was coming ("X knows, I tell ya").

--Ruins#1

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Charles Xavier, aka Professor X. His actual name is unrevealed.

    He became the president of the USA, and he has some ties to the mutants, but we don't know anything else for sure.

    I don't think it is confirmed that he has psionic powers, but it seems pretty likely..


earth-9591-princesspython.jpg"Princess Python"

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - As part of the Quintano Carnival in part of the American desert, she did a lude performance with her python as her act.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - When Sheldon viewed her performance, he described it as: "An attractive woman did something illegal with a python for 10-15 minutes."

--Ruins#2

Note: Clearly intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Princess Python (Zelda DuBois).

    She was never identified in the story, and we have nothing else to go on but the image and the sentence above.


 earth-9591-punisher.jpg

Punisher

    Outside on Chicago's streets, Sheldon heard gunfire over by the riverfront and "something howling like a wolf on a high roof, and then coughing like a man with lung damage. As the gray snow fell, Sheldon recalled someone telling him that Chicago snow had skin scrapings in it.

    Tripping over the bullet-ridden corpse of a costumed man, Sheldon considered that he didn't want to die yet, as he wanted to find an answer for why things had gone this way.

--Ruins#1 

Note: Obviously intended to be the counterpart of Reality-616's Punisher (Frank Castle), he was never given a real name or a code name in story.

    We don't know who killed him, but only that he wasn't the virtually unstoppable Punisher like his Reality-616 counterpart.

    I also don't know what the lung-damaged wolf was supposed to be...I'm not sure why Werewolf (Jack Russell) or Man-Wolf (John Jameson) would have lung damage, but maybe the extradimensional radiation of the Godstone gave him cancer. Or maybe it was some wolf-character I didn't think of...or maybe it was just supposed to be mysterious.


Pym

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Stark joined with the other Californian scientists, like Pym (who could become the size of skyscrapers), and gurus like Stephen Strange, to form a revolutionary cell: The Avengers. Other members eventually (or originally?) included "a lovely woman with delicate wings," "the cold, young bowman," and all the others.

(Ruins#1) - Somewhere in California, the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants (apparently Captain America and Thor, and likely Pym, Tony Stark, and the winged woman). 

--Ruins#1

Note: He was never referred to in-story as Giant-Man (or Goliath), etc., but he was the counterpart of Reality-616's Henry Pym.

    He was never clearly seen (the only picture is in the Avengers sub-profile)


earth-9591-quickie.jpg"Quickie"

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - In the Shock Corridor of the prison run by Warden Fisk, "Quickie" had his arms and legs cut off.

    He remained in bandages, presumably because the amputation sites didn't heal well.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - President X sometimes visited the prison, sometimes just staring sadly at them and other times taunting them and leaving them sobbing. 

(Ruins#2) - When Phil Sheldon visited his prison, Fisk showed him the Shock Corridor with the approval of President X.

    When they passed the cell of "Quickie," Fisk told Sheldon that the quadruple amputation had been for his own good; "don't go feeling sorry for him."

--Ruins#2

Note: "Quickie" would be the counterpart of Reality-616's Quicksilver (Pietro Maximoff), and his limbs were presumably cut off to prevent him from using his super-speed. 

    He was not identified beyond "Quickie," and it was never actually stated that he had super-speed.

    In Reality-616, Quicksilver is the twin brother of the Scarlet Witch, but that is unconfirmed in this reality...and who knows if  of the counterpart of "Magneto" in this reality or not?


earth-9591-quintano.jpgQuintano Carnival

(Ruins#2) - Sheldon traveled via a noisy old bus with blacked out windows to the Quintano Carnival in part of the American desert. 

    A makeshift circus ring was laid out on the desert floor, where ugly people did their shtick for a thin audience of uglier people.

    An attractive woman did something illegal with a python for 10-15 minutes.

    "Saint John" aka Blaze poured gasoline on his head, set it on fire, and drove around for hours in the desert, technically dead but still riding and screaming.

 

--Ruins#2

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Quentin Carnival.

    The snake-charmer and Blaze (aka Saint John) were the only confirmed members.


earth-9591-richards-reed.jpgearth-9591-richards-reed-corpse.jpgReed Richards

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - At "the Cape" (Cape Canaveral, Kennedy Space Center), Reed (and his associates, the "Storm kids") met with astronaut, engineer, and university lecturer Ben Grimm. 

    Richards was interested in Astraea, which was to be the link between the orbital capsules and later rockets; it would be able to fly, rather than just orbit and descend. Richards wanted to study cosmic ray activity in local space, which orbitals would never reach. Though Astraea was built and fueled, it would not be ready to go until 1965.

    Not wanting to wait, Richards showed up at Grimm's house on night, raving about his desire to steal Astraea and show them that all of the red tape was anti-science. Richards wanted Grimm to fly the ship, but Grimm argued that the ship wasn't ready; Grimm noted that he wanted to put lateral motors on Astraea, and it would take months just for the math to be done for this. Richards didn't listen to Grimm, they had a fight, and Grimm decked Richards. 

    Richards talked some "tenure-hound" faculty named von Doom into flying Astraea. 

    Richards, von Doom, and the Storm siblings stole Astraea and flew into a flashstorm of cosmic radiation. Grimm felt that if they had had lateral motors von Doom could have maneuvered them away from the storm.

    After the Astraea came back down, all aboard were horribly mutated and most perished. 

    Richards' body stretched like rubber before rigor mortis set in. 

--Ruins#2

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic.

    There's no evidence he was given any sort of codename in this reality.

    In Reality-616, Reed was the boyfriend of Sue Storm; we have no idea of the nature of their relationship in this reality.

    That's Ben Grimm's lighter at the top right of the normal image of Reed.

    It took me awhile to finish this profile...I'm pretty certain that picture with the creepy look on Reed's face is going to give me nightmares. I had to close the book to make it stop looking at me.


earth-9591-sheldon-facep3.jpgPhil Sheldonearth-9591-sheldon-face&camera.jpg

    A former photographer for the Daily Bugle, he gave up his job to write a story on how the rise of superhumans had all gone wrong. He felt that Earth had been on a cusp of Marvels, and he hoped to find evidence of one specific event.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Phil Sheldon had at least one ferrous metal (or something else magnetic) filling, as well as some dentures.

(Ruins#2 (fb)) - Sheldon never cared for freelance photographer Peter Parker, considering him a "science major know-it-all weasel," nor that poisonous old aunt of his." After Parker was infected with some sort of mutant virus by being bitten by an irradiated spider during an experiment, Parker shook hands with Sheldon, (presumably) unwittingly infecting Sheldon with the virus.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Sheldon gave up his job to write a story on how the rise of superhumans had all gone wrong. His friends thought he was nuts...

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Sheldon contacted Nick Fury in hopes of arranging a meeting.

(Ruins#1) - Phil Sheldon watched from somewhere in California as the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants; he continued to watch as the Guard posed with Captain America's shield and Thor's hammer, both apparently have fallen to Earth from the destroyed Quinjet.

    Stopping in at a seedy bar to help swallow his pills, Sheldon was accosted by a man the bartender referred to as "Little Canuck," who told Sheldon to buy him a drink or he'd kill him. The bartender bought the man a drink after he showed Sheldon the bone disease in his hands.

    Sheldon subsequently traveled to the Kree Reservation and -- after being forced to don a radiation suit -- interviewed Mar-Vell, learning about the Kree's failed invasion and subsequent internment. Acknowleding how the camp had broken them all and that it would be empty in 30 years, Mar-Vell told him to get out.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Rick Jones wrote Phil Sheldon and multiple other journalists, offering information about a "conspiracy in Arizona" that he wished to share before the CIA got him.

(Ruins#1) - Sheldon met with Nick Fury in the former Washington, DC; Fury warned Sheldon about attacting attention. When Sheldon stated he was writing a book, the paranoid Fury punched Sheldon in the gut, knocking him down, and shouting that he had no connection with the Avengers. When Sheldon explained he was writing a story about the...different ones, Fury backed off. After killing a woman named Jean who propositioned him and then ranting about mutants, Fury shot himself through the head.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Sheldon arrived at a boarding house in Chicago, Illinois to meet Rick Jones, the door was answered by a woman holding a gray baby with a fistula in its chest; for a dollar, the woman offered to allow hear the fistula say, "Our lord is dead." 
    As Sheldon edged past and upstairs, the woman screamed to Sheldon not to forget her baby's name (Daimon Hellstrom), as he would be the messiah one day.

(Ruins#1) - Sheldon met with Rick Jones, who told him about the Hulk and then began to beat his drug-addict girlfriend Marlo when she mouthed off at him.earth-9591-sheldon-infected.jpg

    Outside, Sheldon heard gunfire over by the riverfront and "something howling like a wolf on a high roof, and then coughing like a man with lung damage. As the gray snow fell, Sheldon recalled someone telling him that Chicago snow had skin scrapings in it.

    Tripping over the bullet-ridden corpse of a costumed man (the "Punisher"), Sheldon considered that he didn't want to die yet, as he wanted to find an answer for why things had gone this way.

(Ruins#2) - While flying in a plane, Sheldon looked out the window and saw a woman (the Valkyrie) riding a winged horse, immediately after which Darkholme went mad (she was described as having had her brain implode), causing her face to hideously mutate. 

    The plane had an emergency landing, and Sheldon's left arm began to itch and he quickly took two pills, after which he cursed himself for not thinking to get his camera out.

    As the government agents took Darkholme away, one of them shoved a white-haired man out of the way, unwittingly disabling his homemade degaussing kit. As energy glowed around the white-haired man, the agent's gun, plus apparently a total hip prosthesis or something, followed by his blood (plus one of Sheldon's fillings, which smashed through two good teeth en route) were pulled towards the man's magnetic field. After the agent suffered a massive neural hemorrhage (his brain appeared to come out of his mouth or somewhere else on his head), an entire airplane was pulled atop the white-haired man, killing him. earth-9591-sheldon-otherpics.jpg

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Sheldon's photographs of the magnetic disaster were taken by the government officials from the recovery team sent by the White House via helicopter.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Wishing to grant "the last request of a dying man," President X instructed Warden Fisk to allow Sheldon to see the "Shock Corridor" of his Texas prison, but to collect his camera before he left so he could not bring out proof of what he saw. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - Alicia Masters wrote to Ben Grimm, letting him know to expect a visit from Sheldon.earth-9591-sheldon-dead.jpg

(Ruins#2) - Visiting a prison in Texas, Sheldon was greeted by Warden Fisk, who showed him Summers, Kitty, "Quickie," and "Nightcrawler." Fisk also told him of President X's actions before collecting his camera and sending him on his way.

    Later, as Sheldon took some time to gather his thoughts by a peaceful lake, an unidentified young girl saw that he looked all alone, brought him a flower, and invited him to have sandwiches at a picnic with her and her mother.

(Ruins#2) - Sheldon traveled via a noisy old bus with blacked out windows to the Quintano Carnival in part of the American desert. A makeshift circus ring was laid out on the desert floor: An attractive woman did something illegal with a python for 10-15 minutes; and "Saint John" aka Blaze poured gasoline on his head, set it on fire, and drove around for hours in the desert, technically dead but still riding and screaming.

    Sheldon concluded that there wasn't a single event that had caused all of the problems, but that everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong. Despite exhaustion, he resolved to write his book and perhaps show everyone what things could have been like.

(Ruins#2 (fb)) - Militiamen ("Bucky" Barnes, Creed, Monroe) were taken into custody by police following threatening behavior. Sheldon briefly interviewed them.

(Ruins#2) - Sheldon next visited Major Ben Grimm in his cabins in the Rocky Mountains. Grimm shared Reed Richards' activities.

    Sheldon returned to New York City, having gathered his notes and completed his interviews, resolving to call his book "Marvels" and hoping to write it quickly. As he wished he had time to craft the book and make the best possible case of why the world had gone wrong, he considered that his time was limited because of Parker. 

    Having run out of pills on the train back, Sheldon planned to stop at the pharmacist later, but he suddenly collapsed and died, his research and photographs scattering as his briefcase broke open, floating off and scattering in the wind.

earth-9591-silvery_being.jpgearth-9591-silvery_being-disemboweled.jpgsilvered humanoid

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Originally a living, breathing being, a silvered humanoid was imbued with cosmic energy and became a sealed biology without need of an atmosphere.

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Speculated as having gone mad and wanting to know what it was like to breathe again, the silvered humanoid apparently clawed open its own chest to expose its lungs to the atmosphere; it swiftly died of shock.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - Arriving out of hyperport, the Kree Liberation Front's ship swept around Earth's moon and were in the process of nailing down preliminary orbit for a planned Earth invasion when they encountered the corpse of the "silvered humanoid." 

    Although deceased, the creature's energies negated the Kree's cloaking arrays. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Upon being detected, the Kree ship was struck with nuclear missiles from Earth.

--Ruins#1 

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Silver Surfer (Norrin Radd). 

    He had the surfboard, so he may well have been called the "Silver Surfer," but he was dead when first seen, with no specific details of his origin or his past given. 

    It would seem likely that he was associated with the counterpart of this reality's "Galactus," also unidentified and floating in Earth's solar system (in Mar's orbit).


Gwen Stacy

    A photographer (presumably for the Daily Bugle), she worked with Ben Urich in capturing photos of President Xavier and his Secret Serviceman (faintly showing wings on the serviceman, which were suspected to be artifacts of the film)

--Ruins#1 (identified, and pictures shown)    

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Gwen Stacy.

    Gwen was not seen on panel or mentioned beyond being credited in stories for which she took photographs.


 earth-9591-stark.jpgearth-9591-stark-armored.jpg

Tony Stark

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Genius engineer, millionaire industrial, and California's favorite son, Anthony Stark sought to use his skills to end the Vietnam War. 

    When the president sent the National Guard into California to suppress dissent and pro-secessionism, Stark tried to mediate, but he was clipped by shrapnel from a National Guard grenade. 

    Stark prevented the shrapnel from killing him by designing and wearing an armored suit, leading the press to call him "The Man in the Iron Mask"

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Stark joined with the other Californian scientists, like Pym (who could become the size of skyscrapers), and gurus like Stephen Strange, to form a revolutionary cell: The Avengers. 

    Other members eventually (or originally?) included "a lovely woman with delicate wings," "the cold, young bowman," and all the others.

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - The armored Tony Stark broke someone's neck in South Central Los Angeles, California.earth-9591-stark-armor-full.jpg

(Ruins#1) - Somewhere in California, the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants (apparently Captain America and Thor, and likely Pym, Tony Stark, and the winged woman). 

    Afterward, the Guard posed with Captain America's shield and Thor's hammer, both apparently have fallen to Earth from the destroyed Quinjet.

--Ruins#1    

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Anthony Stark, aka Iron Man. 

    There's no evidence he was ever called Iron Man in this reality.

    This reality being what it was, I'd imagine that Stark was forced to wear the chest plate portion of his armor at all times and couldn't take showers.

    Sheldon referred to him as a "handsome genius wrapped in steel."


earth-9591-storm-brother-corpse.jpgStorm 
(brother)

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - After Ben Grimm refused to fly the Astraea until they put lateral motors on it, Richards talked a "tenure-hound" faculty named von Doom into flying Astraea. 

    Richards, von Doom, and the Storm siblings stole Astraea and flew into a flashstorm of cosmic radiation. Grimm felt that if they had had lateral motors von Doom could have maneuvered them away from the storm.

    After the Astraea came back down, all aboard were horribly mutated and most perished. 

    The Storm boy caught fire at the cellular level, and he burned from the bones outward. 

--Ruins#1 

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Jonathan "Johnny" Storm, aka the Human Torch.

    We didn't get a first name, and there's no evidence he received any sort of code name.

    I'd ASSume his mutation/injuries were fatal.


earth-9591-storm-sue-mutated.jpgStorm
(sister)

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - After Ben Grimm refused to fly the Astraea until they put lateral motors on it, Richards talked a "tenure-hound" faculty named von Doom into flying Astraea. 

    Richards, von Doom, and the Storm siblings stole Astraea and flew into a flashstorm of cosmic radiation. Grimm felt that if they had had lateral motors von Doom could have maneuvered them away from the storm.

    After the Astraea came back down, all aboard were horribly mutated and most perished. 

    The Storm girl was invisible, as well; as her eyes were light-reflective, she was blind. 

    First discovering the Storm boy, the rescue time -- which included Grimm -- did not know his sister was there until she fell on her brother. 

    As her brother was burning, she was presumably injured or killed by falling on top of him.

--Ruins#1 

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Susan Storm, aka the Invisible Woman (and before that, the Invisible Girl).

    We didn't get a first name, and there's no evidence she received any sort of code name.

    In Reality-616, Sue Storm was the girlfriend (and later wife) of Reed Richards. The nature of their relationship in this reality is unrevealed.


Stephen Strange

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Stark joined with the other Californian scientists, like Pym (who could become the size of skyscrapers), and gurus like Stephen Strange, to form a revolutionary cell: The Avengers. Other members eventually (or originally?) included "a lovely woman with delicate wings," "the cold, young bowman," and all the others.

--Ruins#1

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Dr. Strange, we don't know if he had a codename or actual mystic powers.

    We don't know what happened after he helped found the Avengers...I mean, I'm sure he died horribly because of the reality in which he lived, but we don't know the circumstances...was he still with them at the time the National Guard shot down the quinjet? Was he on the quinjet? Not answers we are likely to get.

    He was never pictured that I saw.


earth-9591-summers.jpg

Summers

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - After "the Summers boy" incinerated his family with his eyebeams, Fisk and his associates (perhaps including President X) had to blind the boy (apparently actually removing his eyes) to get the eyebeams under control.

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - President X sometimes visited the prison, sometimes just staring sadly at them and other times taunting them and leaving them sobbing. 

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - While visiting the prison, President X once dropped his pants and screamed at them, "You all came from this!"

(Ruins#2) - Visiting a prison in Texas, journalist Phil Sheldon was greeted by Warden Fisk, who showed him the Summers boy, whom he taunted about having been blinded. 

    When Summers asked if the President was there and reached his hand out through the bars, Fisk smashed Summers' hand with his nightstick and then noted that the boy "don't remember too good no more.

--Ruins#2

Note: Summers is almost certainly intended to be the counterpart of Earth-616's Cyclops (Scott Summers), although his first name is never given, nor is he ever noted as having any codename.

    If his relatives were the same as his Earth-616 counterparts, he would have killed his parents, Christopher and Katherine, and his brother, Alex (and possibly Gabriel). Then again, maybe his parents had already been captured by the Shi'ar and he was being raised by an adoptive or foster family...or something else...


 

Supreme Intelligence

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) <Three years before the main story> - The Supreme Intelligence directed the Kree Liberation Force (KLF) to "liberate Earth from its governments" and yoke it to Kree authority.

 --Ruins#1 

Note: The Supreme Intelligence was never shown and only referenced this one time. It apparently did not choose to mount any response to the failure and capture of the Kree Liberation Front. 

    In Reality-616, the Supreme Intelligence is a composite entity composed of the greatest Kree minds.

    For all we know, it went crazy and killed itself and/or destroyed the entire Kree Empire.


Ben Urich

    A reporter (presumably for the Daily Bugle?).

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS)  - Urich worked with photographer Gwen Stacy in reporting on President Xavier on the relocated White House lawn in the District of New York. 

    He commented on the seeming wings coming off the Secret Serviceman's back as apparently artifacts of the film. 

    He also discussed the airstrikes in the Genoshan Police Action (aka the Genoshan War).

--Ruins#1

Note: The counterpart of Reality-616's Ben Urich.

    Ben was not seen on panel or mentioned beyond being credited in stories he reported.


earth-9591-valkyrie.jpg

"valkyrie"

(Ruins#2) - Phil Sheldon saw the beautiful Valkyrie flying on her winged steed outside of his plane en route to wherever he was going...he was next shown in Texas, so maybe Dulles-Fort Worth. Or not.

     He began to ask if anyone else had seen her, but was distracted when Raven Darkholme's head imploded/exploded/something bad happened...

--Ruins#2

Note: This was presumably intended to represent the counterpart of Reality-616's Valkyrie (Brunnhilde), but the main significance was that only those that were dying could see the Valkyries (Valkyrior), and Phil Sheldon saw her.

    She wasn't named as Valkyrie, or a valkyrie, or Brunnhilde or anything in-story...

   


von Doom

(Ruins#2 (fb) - BTS) - After Ben Grimm refused to fly the Astraea until they put lateral motors on it, Richards talked a "tenure-hound" faculty named von Doom into flying Astraea. 

    Richards, von Doom, and the Storm siblings stole Astraea and flew into a flashstorm of cosmic radiation. Grimm felt that if they had had lateral motors von Doom could have maneuvered them away from the storm.

    After the Astraea came back down, all aboard were horribly mutated and most perished. 

    Von Doom was reportedly mineralized, with his internal organs on the outside.

    The rescue team -- which included Grimm -- did not capture any photographs of von Doom.

--Ruins#2

Note: He was the counterpart of Reality-616's Victor von Doom, aka Doctor Doom. 

    We never got his first name and don't know anything else about him, beyond that he employed in an unspecified university as faculty.


earth-9591-washingtondc.jpgWashington 
(formerly the District of Columbia

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The White House was relocated to the newly-formed District of New York. 

    The former Washington, DC was swallowed back by its state (???), and society deteriorated, with crime, homelessness, and drugs running rampant.

(Ruins#1) - Sheldon met with Nick Fury in the former Washington, DC. 

    Fury warned Sheldon about attacting attention.

    Meanwhile, a French-speaking woman asked for help for her (naked?) brother Jean-Paul as she dragged him down the street.

    When Sheldon stated he was writing a book, the paranoid Fury punched Sheldon in the gut, knocking him down, and shouting that he was clean, hadn't seen Captain America since World War II, and that he had no connection with the Avengers. 

    When Sheldon explained he was writing a story about the...different ones, Fury backed off. He asked Sheldon if he ever wondered whether all of the sick, weird stuff happening wasn't supposed to be something wonderful. Sheldon agreed, noting he was thinking of calling his book "Marvels." 

    Fury then shot a rabid dog approaching behind Sheldon. Fury then continued that he did not get the feeling he was asking about, and that he liked things the way they were, as he didn't need to feel guilty about not making an effort to understand the world. 

    When a young, masked, red-headed woman named Jean offered sex for money ("I'll do it better than anyone for $20"), Nick noted her expensive clothes and asked her how old she was. When she told him, "Old as you need," he replied, "Doubt that," and fatally shot her.

    After ranting further about mutants, Fury noted he was going to take a short nap, told Sheldon to remember that he was clean, and that "we" had killed Captain America last week with a patriot missile, and then shot himself through the head.

Note: I'm not sure what it means that "The former Washington, DC was swallowed back by its state."

    Washington, DC is bordered by Virginia and Maryland...I kind of wonder if Ellis didn't think it was in Washington, but I'd think he knows better than that, even though he's English (meaning not native to the USA).


"Wasp"

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Stark joined with the other Californian scientists, like Pym (who could become the size of skyscrapers), and gurus like Stephen Strange, to form a revolutionary cell: The Avengers. Other members eventually (or originally?) included "a lovely woman with delicate wings," "the cold, young bowman," and all the others.

(Ruins#1) - Somewhere in California, the National Guard launched a patriot missile at an Avengers Quinjet, destroying it and killing its inhabitants (apparently Captain America and Thor, and likely Pym, Tony Stark, and/or the winged woman). 

--Ruins#1

Note: Sheldon referred to her a "a lovely woman with delicate wings."

    She was never clearly seen (the only picture is in the Avengers sub-profile)


Weekly World Enquiry

Boasted on its cover as "THE LARGEST CIRCULATION OF ANY PAPER," the Enquiry reported on a number of sensational stories, such as questioning "Porn Star "ENCHANTRESS": Did She Kill Producer With MAGIC?" and "GOD FOUND DEAD IN SPACE."

--Ruins#1

Note: The God Found Dead in Space showed a picture of the corpse of the apparent counterpart of Reality-616's Galactus floating in Mars' orbit and noted that "TELESCOPE PHOTOS OF MARS DISCOVER CORPS (sic) OF SUPREME BEING IN ORBIT.

    While the magazine cover looked like a tabloid such as the real world's National Enquirer, the stories, at least on this cover, were likely real stories on Earth-9591. How factual the stories themselves were remains to seen...

    See the sub-profiles for the Enchantress and "God" to view the images on this cover.


earth-9591-whitehouse-prx.jpg

White House

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - The White House was relocated to the newly-formed District of New York. 

(Ruins#1 (fb)) - An unidentified secret serviceman who appeared to possess some sort of wings (though this was reported as likely being an artifact from the film) pushed President X across the White House lawn. 

(Ruins#1 (fb) - BTS) - Gwen Stacy caught a photograph of the serviceman pushing President X, and Ben Urich reported this as the first siting of President X since the White House's relocation. 

--Ruins#1

Note: The text says the White House lawn was relocated. I don't know whether the lawn was physically moved, or whether the White House was moved, and so the "White House lawn" now had a new location.

    It is unrevealed whether the District of New York covered somewhere in Manhattan or elsewhere in New York City, or whether it was more like the property of the Xavier Institute.


earth-9591-huggirl.jpgearth-9591-huggirl2.jpgunidentified girl

    

 

(Ruins#2) - After his experiences in the Shock Corridor, Phil Sheldon went on a walk for awhile; aimless, he was hoping to get away from death in his meandering. He found himself by a lake with a surface like old glass. He imagined that the paranormals of his world were dropped on the world like rocks on a lake's surface, and that their shockwaves spread out to touch all edges of the world.

    An unidentified young girl saw that Sheldon looked all alone, brought him a flower because "they're alive and can be company." As he thanked her and took the flowers, she told him that her mommy talked to her flowers all the time, and that they were having a picnic. 

    As he looked at the flower, the little girl put her head down and seemed sad, after which she gave Sheldon a hug and invited him to have sandwiches with her and her mother.

--Ruins#2

Note: I got some "Sixth Sense" vibe out of this...like perhaps the girl was a ghost, or her mom was dead? Or maybe he was dreaming or otherwise imagining it?

    Anyone else see anything more/else out of this?
