The Challengers of the Fantastic (Reed Richard's Rocket Team) investigate a series of attacks on cities by underground giants, and discover the Mole Man's secret empire. They expose his plan to invade the surface world, and the Mole Man seals the entrance through Monster Island after they leave, seemingly trapping him forever. This story, titled "What If the Fantastic Four Had Not Gained their Super-Powers?", depicts a less "amalgamated" origin for the team than the Challengers of the Fantastic possess, but the characters are essentially the same, and efforts were made within the comic to compare the team to the Challengers of the Unknown. [WHAT IF..? (vol. I) #36 (MARVEL), DEC 1982]

Logan becomes the vigilante Dark Claw in New Gotham. [LEGENDS OF THE DARK CLAW #1, APR 1996] Please see Appendix 3 for more details

The four heroes choose to band together as the Judgment League: Avengers. It is highly likely, although not provable, that one of the Skulk's violent rampages was the catalyst for the formation of the JLA. [DOCTOR STRANGEFATE #1, APR, 1996] [AMALGAM TRADING CARD #10]

MagneMorpho becomes Magneto, founds the Brotherhood of Mutants. It is easy to assume that the Flash and Scarlet Witch mentioned by Mercury in JLX #1 (1996) were members of the Brotherhood. However, if this is the case, it becomes necessary to accept the idea that they escaped death at the hands of the Sentinels by traveling to the future, in direct contrast to the many claims that all the Brotherhood members were slain. Mister Mastermind would also seem to be a likely candidate for membership in the Brotherhood, but this is complicated by his presence later. [MAGNETO AND THE MAGNETIC MEN #1, APR 1996] [MAGNETIC MEN FEATURING MAGNETO #1, JUN 1997]

Quinn recognizes Dark Claw as Logan, whom he blames for his own misfortunes, and shows up in New Gotham as the Hyena.  He decides to hunt the Darknight Defender, armed with claws, guns, laughing bombs, and a street gang he assumes control of and renames the Pack. [AMALGAM TRADING CARD #76]

Uncle Gen is killed by a two-bit burglar. Spider-Boy realizes he has to make sure he is never just a kid who gets ignored while other people get hurt. [SPIDER-BOY #1, APR 1996]

Orion the Thunder-Man comes to Earth. Note that there is no evidence that Orion was the Thunder-Man.  However, Orion does not have a Marvel Universe component until after his death during the Secret Crisis, and Thunder-Man is too vague a reference to establish his exact components (all that is known about him is that he is long-underrated and does not have his own book).  It is fitting that the New God Orion should be amalgamated with the God of Thunder, Thor, given that the AU Orion is later resurrected as Thorion the Hunter. [BULLETS AND BRACELETS #1, APR 1996] [JLX #1, APR 1996]

Mister Mxyzptlk teleports from the DC Universe to a world similar to the Marvel Universe. In this reality, the 5th dimensional Imp closely resembles a discolored Impossible Man. It has been theorized that the two impish characters are one and the same being from this appearance. This has been contradicted by their encounter in SUPERMAN / SILVER SURFER #1 (1996). It is possible, however, that the world traveled to was a Hypertime of the DC Universe that is similar to the Marvel Universe. This may have been the Amalgam Universe or one of its counterparts, and the heroes seen in this world could in theory be members of the Super-Four seen in UNLIMITED ACCESS #4. This would make Mr. Mxyzptlk into the Impossible Mxyzptlk, an amalgam of both tricksters. As unlikely as this may seem, it is a credible feat for a creature of the 5th dimension.

Note that this does not mean that the Judgment League Avengers or Challengers of the Fantastic memberships necessarily change to match the story, since they are seen only in an alternate future that resembles an amalgamation of KINGDOM COME and EARTH X. The name Captain Marvel Boy is suggested by Crazy Ivan. [CAPTAIN MARVEL (vol. III) #16, 2001]
