Alternate Universes

Earth-2149 (New Wakanda)

Little is known about New York before the zombie contagion arrived there, though it can be presumed it followed much the same path as New York (Earth-616).

The city was destroyed when uninfected, and zombified super-heroes battled for their lives, eventually leaving the city, and indeed the planet completely devoid of life.

40 Years Later, New York is renamed "New Wakanda" and ruled over by T'Challa, the city begins its attempt at rebirth.

Earth-37072 (Kulan Gath's Spell)

The Exiles visited a world where Kulan Gath's spell had not been undone, leaving New York City to look like the middle ages.
