Empire State University, also called ESU or simply State University, is an university located in New York City.




Little is known about the history of ESU.

The science hall got the Neogenic Recombinator designed by Curt Connors and Farley Stillwell. Curt used to Recombinator to accidentally turn himself into Lizard. Spider-Man used it to cure him. Stillwell used it to create Scorpion but he could not be cured.

When Michael Morbius turned into a vampire he began attacking students on campus. Eventually he transformed into a large bat-like creature and flew away. When he was found, ESU got the chance to study him. However, he got out and Spider-Man used the Recombinator to turn him into his less bat-like form.


The Fantastic Four episode "The Origin of the Fantastic Four, Part One" only states that Reed Richards went to State University.
