The Ultimate Marvel version of Schizoid Man is an unnamed genetically-modified French citizen thanks to Jamie Madrox's stolen stem cells. He uses his similar self-replication powers to control a riot before joining the Liberators. His team leads a large army to invade and conquer the United States, leading to the deaths of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Giant-Man Reserves. Captain America and the Wasp defeat all of Schizoid Man's bodies that were "scattered all over the Triskelion".
