Chapter 01: The Gamer?

"What. The. Hell?" A small fourteen year old girl with short black hair muttered as she stared in the bathroom mirror, wearing nothing but a white shirt and gray sweatpants, holding a toothbrush as toothpaste covered her mouth.

Putting the toothbrush down, the girl blinked again, showing that she had Heterochromia with the left eye being green while the right eye was blue as she rubbed them before staring at the mirror again.

It was still there.

She had to be imagining it.

In the mirror, right above her head in blue words said. 'Lily Zacks-High School Freshmen-Lv. 1.'

"Maybe I do need to lay off the video games." Lily said as she stared at the words.

Lily waited a few more seconds to see if it would go away but when it didn't, she frowned.

Quickly rinsing out her mouth, she looked at the mirror before sighing. "What's next a Stat Page-?" Her words died when a blue holographic box appeared in front of her.

'Status Window.'

Description: Lily Karla Zacks is just an average Socially Awkward Girl who gets by playing Video Games. Currently a Freshmen with no real goal in life, she drifts by people, not leaving any impressions at all.'

Lily stared in disbelief at what she was seeing.

HP? MP? Stats?!

Then she looked at the 'Job.'

'The Gamer.'

"What the heck?" Lily whispered before realizing she was being awfully calm about this.

Shouldn't she be freaking out?

But she wasn't.

"This is just too weird." Lily said as she touched the Holographic Box to see that she could move it anywhere as she touched it.

Finally she saw another tab that said 'Skills List' so she touched it as another page opened up.

'Skills List.'

'Gamer's Mind (Passive) Lv MAX: Allows the user to calmly and logically think things through with a peaceful mind. Has a resistance to telepathic attacks and psychological damage.'

'Gamer's Body (Passive) Lv MAX: Let's the user's body live the real world like a game. HP and MP are fully restored if sleeping in a bed. 75% in a Tent and 50% Outdoors or in a Sleeping Bag.'

"... I'm done." Lily muttered as she turned away from the window, the floating box following her. "Uh, exit?"

Thankfully the box disappeared as Lily thought about what it said.

"Gamer's Mind." Lily mused thoughtfully. "Well, that explains why I'm so calm about it at least."

But how did she have this?

Another box appeared with a loud ping causing her to jump.

'Quest Alert.'

"Quest?" Lily asked incredulously as she tapped it.

'You are running late.

Due to spending the last half hour looking in the mirror, you are late leaving home, try to make it to school before class begins.

Time Limit: 30 Minutes.

Rewards: 50 Exp.

Fail Penalty: Decrease in Trust with Teachers.'

Eyes wide, Lily cursed before she ran out of the bathroom into her room and a few minutes later she was now dressed in a black zip-up hoodie and blue jeans, with blue vans and a red baseball cap covering her short hair, as she looked at the Time Limit that was showing.

'28:23.'

Almost two minutes gone with changing her clothes as she ran down the stairs, not worried about making noise as her parents were already at work as she grabbed her backpack before reaching into the kitchen closet to grab a Blueberry Bagel, stuffing it into her mouth as she ran out the door.


"Excuse me. Pardon me." Lily cried out as she was pushing herself through a crowd of people on a street. "Coming through!"

She knew that New York was packed with being one of the most populated cities in the world, but this was just insane.

It's as if something was trying to make her late.

"Come on seriously?!" Lily said at seeing a huge traffic jam blocking her way. "This is ridiculous!"

She spared a moment to look at the time limit.

'20:17.'

"Okay I still have enough time." Lily muttered as she saw an opening and took off running again.

Another box opened up surprising her as she quickly ran around a person, apologizing for nearly knocking them over.

'You have obtained a new skill. Free Running (Passive) Lv. 1: You are now barely adept at traversing busy streets. Speed is increased by 5% along with improved breathing and stamina. This skill also gives 5% to your Vitality. Next Level 0/40.'

"Huh?" Lily muttered as she did seem to be running a bit smoother, although she was still panting.


Eventually Lily made it to school, panting badly as she placed a hand on the wall not jumping this time as another box opened up.

'Mission Complete: Made it to School with 10 Minutes to spare.

Rewards Earned: 50 Exp.'

'You have Leveled Up.'

'Leveled Up?' Lily looked confused by that before she thought about the Gamer Body skill that was shown earlier.

It seems like she really has become like a Video Game Character.

'Am I a Mutant?' Lily thought remembering hearing the rumors on the News about people with 'special abilities' being branded Mutants as well as being hunted by people as well as the rumors of a guy dressing up like a Devil in Hell's Kitchen.

If she was, this would make a weird superpower.

Lily snorted at the idea as she entered the school, not wanting to be late after the hell she suffered running from home to there.


Sitting in Science Class, Lily just stared out the window as the teacher went on and on.

Why did she bother coming here? She didn't have anyone to talk to.

… Oh right, because it was a 'Quest'.

Turning from the window to look at the teacher, Lily looked overhead to be surprised.

'Raymond Warren-Science Teacher-Lv. 12.'

Eyes widening, Lily looked around as she saw the same thing with the other teenagers.

'Flash 'Eugene' Thompson-Star Ball Player-Lv. 4.'

'Mary-Jane Watson-Aspiring Actress-Lv. 3.'

'Peter Benjamin Parker-Young Scientist-Lv. 4.'

'Harold 'Harry' Osborn-Scion of Oscorp-Lv. 4.'

There were various others, none of them were over level five.

'You have obtained a new skill through your actions. Observe Lv. 1: This skill allows you to see a person's Level and max HP. Next Level: 0/10.'

"Huh." Lily muttered under her breath, but that drew attention to her.

"Is there a problem Ms. Zacks?" Mr. Warren asked causing Lily to smile sheepishly as the class turned towards her.

"Uh no problem, just realized I forgot to do something at home." Lily lied rubbing her head as her hat was on the back of her chair.

"You would do better to pay attention and worry about that on your own time." Mr. Warren told her causing some of the class to chuckle.

'Through your actions, you've obtained the skill Lying Lv. 1: You can now plan out lies to deceive those around you. Next Level: 0/5.'


The rest of the day passed by as usual for Lily as she was now in lunch with a tray of food, sitting by herself as her hat was on now.

"... Stats." Lily whispered as it opened again.

Description: Lily Karla Zacks is just an average Socially Awkward Girl who gets by playing Video Games. Currently a Freshmen with no real goal in life, she drifts by people, not leaving any impressions at all.'

Lily looked surprised that her health was improved a bit as she saw she had five stat points.

She was about to use them before pausing.

'Right, Leveling up is hard.' Lily thought as she remembered in all the video games she played wasting the points was a bad idea.

Even if they could help with her pathetic stats at the moment.

Then she realized how bad it was that this was beginning to feel normal to her.

… She blames the Gamer's Mind ability.

That was when she saw the Inventory Tab and quickly whispered that to have it open as it showed a full body avatar of her with her clothes on like armor as well as a lot of empty space to the side.

Blinking at that, Lily looked down at the French Fry she was holding. "Observe."

'School French Fry: School Food, not very healthy for you in the long run, but can restore 1 MP.'

Making sure that no one was paying attention, Lily flicked the French Fry and watched it disappear into thin air before it reappeared inside of her Inventory.

Eyes widening, she quickly took it out and looked at it as if it came from space.

She had a freaking pocket dimension?!

… Awesome.

Reopening the Stats as she ate, Lily used her observe on the different Stats she had.

'Strength (STR): The Strength Attribute determines the person's overall Physical Power. It also affects how much damage you can inflict on another person with a blunt or bladed object as well as how much damage you can take.'

'Vitality (VIT): The Vitality Attribute affects your overall health. This is important to regain health outside of combat and to resist special types of damage like poison, burns, etc.

1 VIT= 25 HP Points.

1 VIT= .5 HP Regeneration Per Minute.'

'Dexterity (DEX): This determines the Gamer's overall movement like your speed, accuracy, evasion and critical hits on opponents in close, mid and long-range combat. Dexterity can also play a role in sneaking, picking locks, stealing and dual wielding.'

'Intelligence (INT): Intelligence is an important aspect to think quickly and making decisions on the fly. This can also affect how much MP a person can have.

1 INT= 25 MP Points.

'Wisdom (WIS): Also called 'Common Sense' it can be used to increase perception, and overall control of MP. This Attribute can also help in memorization as well as MP Regeneration outside of combat.'

1 WIS= .5 MP Regeneration Per Minute.'

'Luck (LUK): The Ultimate factor of chance. Luck is unique in itself as it affects the type of loot you'll find from slain enemies, looting random items, winning money from gambling or just staying alive really.'

'Wow.' Lily was honestly surprised by this, although she was a bit worried on how it kept talking about 'combat' as well as the 'slain enemies' in the Luck portion.

'Due to you exploring your new abilities, your INT went up by 1.'

That pop up surprised her as she saw her MP gain an extra 25 points as she smiled again.

She just upgraded her stats without using the points, that proved she didn't have to waste them.


"I'm home." Lily called out as she entered her house before sighing as no answer came.

Yet again her parents were working late.

They were scientists for the Company Oscorp Industries so they always worked day in and day out barely home.

And whenever they do interact, it was to talk about her lack of good grades considering she was a C-Minus student giving her a lack of confidence.

That along with her social awkwardness with anyone she doesn't know made it to where she hasn't made any friends growing up.

Lily filled all of that by playing Video Games to make her life better.

'I suppose it's fitting that my 'superpower' is something like a game.' Lily thought with a small giggle as she opened her backpack and got her books out to finish her homework, which honestly didn't really take that long.

It felt… Easier than it used to, probably because of the increased INT stat.

"There." Lily said putting her pencil down in time to see another box.

'Homework completed. 25 Exp earned.'

"I get Exp by doing my homework?!" Lily asked in surprise not expecting that.

'Due to your studies, your INT went up by 1.'

"And my Intelligence went up again?" Lily smiled as that would be useful.

To Be Continued…

Yes… It's another Gamer Fic, but this one is in Ultimate Marvel-speaking of which how the hell haven't there been any Gamer Fics in the Superhero Genre of Fanfiction like DC or Marvel? If there are I haven't found them yet but seriously?

That's why I decided to do this along with my Gamer of Remnant fic, and you may have noticed how different the Gamer Ability is despite the similarities between the two stories.

In my opinion it's like it is with a different game, different ways. Plus Zidane had better stats in the start due to it being Remnant as well as being a Faunus. On Earth Lily was just a normal human so she had lower stats of a teenager, her strongest being Dexterity due to her playing Video Games so much.

And no Lily isn't a Mutant, she just had the random thought as she wasn't sure what was going on.

Oh and she is smarter than Zidane is in the act of saving points because Zidane in Gamer of Remnant never really played Video Games so he never thought about saving the points and wasted them while Lily played way too many so she knows to save them.

Anyways this is before the main parts of Ultimate Marvel as Peter hasn't been bitten by the spider yet, the Fantastic Four haven't been formed and the Ultimates haven't been called together for the first time. Xavier hasn't gathered the X-Men yet either but the world does know about Mutants like in Ultimate Canon.

The only heroes to exist at this point are Daredevil and Iron man which is why it's basically boring right now. The Hulk also exists but he won't show up for a bit along with Magneto gathering the Brotherhood.

I'm going to try and follow a timeline for the Ultimate Marvel world soon.

Now here is the stuff Stats for Lily right now, I may put it on the page after Zidane's.
