While DC and Marvel are the best known of the different superhero producers, they haven’t been the only ones. In 1993, Malibu Comics attempted a superhero line of its own. Called the “Ultraverse,” the books featured a series of characters called “Ultras” who did the superhero thing. There was a Hollywood Superman type called Hardcase, a kid who grew a giant muscled body in some sort of gooey version of Captain Marvel called Prime, and a superhero team made up of seven strangers who were all riding a San Francisco trolley when a mysterious energy beam gave everybody onboard superpowers. That team was called The Strangers.
The most popular of the bunch was arguably Night Man.
