The Marvel Animation Universe is a cross-series universe created by Marvel Animation. The universe spans across Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Super Hero Adventures: Frost Fight!, and Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell.
The universe is the first to be created by Marvel itself rather than separate companies.
It started on April 1st, 2012 with the Ultimate Spider-Man episode "Great Power". It ended June 9th, 2019 with the Guardians of the Galaxy episode "Just One Victory".
Marvel Handbooks finally gave it the designation Earth-12041 in Secret Wars: Official Guide to the Marvel Multiverse.
The third season of Guardians of the Galaxy began crossing over with Spider-Man, creating confusion as to which universe the shows belonged to.
It was later confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy is set in the same continuity as Spider-Man rather than this continuity
