This reality is similar to the Ultimate universe with some features of Earth-616. In this universe, the Nazis were motivated by an extraterrestrial race called the Chitauri. To combat the Nazis, the Allied nations transformed Steve Rogers into Captain America. Captain America thwarted a plot to destroy Washington but was frozen in the Atlantic in the process, the world believing him to be dead.
In Wakanda, the Chitauri visited the people there and declined an offer of peace, instead seeking to drain it of its vibranium supply. The Wakandans rose up and defeated the aliens, gaining advanced technology and a xenophobic view of the world.
In the 21st century, S.H.I.E.L.D. continue warring with the Chitauri in secret and monitor the superhumans of the world. Bruce Banner is the head of the super-soldier program, desperately trying to recreate the super-soldier serum to help him control the Hulk, a monstrous, greyish-green creature he transforms into when enraged. As far as the public is concerned, there is no connection between Tony Stark and Iron Man. Thor's claims to be the God of Thunder are widely panned, and is the pacifist leader of an eco-centric protest group. Hank Pym/Giant Man is the former head of the super soldier program and Janet Pym/Wasp is his wife. Captain America is awoken from his icy sleep and woken to lead Nick Fury's new team of superheroes the Avengers.The Avengers defeat a Chitauri attack on the Triskellion and a violent rampage by the Hulk, who is imprisoned in an unbreakable room. The Chitauri are revealed to still exist on Earth, led by Captain America's wartime nemesis Herr Kleiser, a shape-shifting Chitauri. Odin reveals to Thor that a Chitauri invasion is imminent due to the arrival if a massive space station, and Thor refuses to leave the planet until he has saved it. The Avengers are formed again and begin a reluctant alliance with Black Panther while a worldwide invasion takes place. Iron Man and Giant Man destroy the space station and wipe out the invaders, but Giant Man dies during the conflict. Thor proves his divinity to the Avengers. The Avengers celebrate their victory and mourn their loss, with Rogers and Black Widow begin a romance.
