Other versions[edit]

Ultimate Schizoid Man[edit]

The Ultimate Universe's Schizoid Man is a mutate created by modifying a (presumably French) man using a cell sample from Jamie Madrox. This grants him similar self-replication powers. He is used to control a riot at least once, and eventually joins the Liberators.[volume & issue needed] His team, leading a large army, invades and conquers the United States, leading to mass civilian deaths.[volume & issue needed] He is defeated by Captain America who, after being released from his cell by the Wasp, defeats all of his bodies, which are later said to be "scattered all over the Triskelion."[volume & issue needed]
