Collectors' Limbo is a realm between dimensional planes used by The Collectors to imprison their victims.


In February, the Ghostbusters were separately kidnapped by the Collectors and taken to another dimension. They awoke to find themselves reunited but stranded. Egon Spengler discovered the readings of the realm matched the baseline of Times Square almost perfectly, indicating they were actually between dimensions. The dimensional wall was so thin that it only distorted the P.K.E. reading by a small margin of 0.00073%. [1] Ray Stantz suggested it was time to put a theory he and Egon talked about at length to practice. They would use Ray's Proton Pack to jury rig a controlled explosion and rip a hole in the interdimensional fabric just wide enough for them to slip through and return home. Egon warned there was a small chance the explosion could cause the dimension to fold over their own and destroy both places. Egon was elected to initiate the explosion. The rip was successful and brought the Ghostbusters back to their proper dimension.

Darius Dun made a bargain with the Collectors and sent them after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to get revenge on Splinter. The Collectors only initially captured Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo in Dimension X and imprisoned them in their limbo. Eventually, Donatello was retrieved. He fell from a portal and crashed near the other Turtles. Leonardo wanted everyone to remain calm so they could get their bearings, chart the territory, and start working on an escape plan. Darius manifested, gloated about their imprisonment, revealed his plan to them, and then disappeared. Leonardo stressed they needed to gather food, water, and shelter. Ray, Winston, and Peter teleported to the limbo and found the Turtles. Ray stopped them and instructed only Donatello to walk through the portal and threw him an Experimental Mental Communications Device to wear. Donatello entered the portal and found himself in the Firehouse basement. Egon explained the device was to mask himself from the Collectors temporarily while they worked on a way to capture them once and for all. Peter and Michelangelo exited the limbo to another dimension. Likewise, so did Ray and Raphael and Winston and Leonardo. To Donatello's dismay, Egon revealed he was in the limbo dimension for roughly three weeks, whereas to him only minutes passed. [2] [3] Darius peered into the limbo and realized the Turtles were gone. He became very agitated.
