Ladybug is to Quantic Universe what Spider-Man is to the Marvel-verse, or Batman to the DC-verse. Quantic Universe is filled of super-heroes in all countries, alien races, magic... Ladybug is just a tiny part of it. Hopefully, if the series is successful, we'll be able to explore it." He also explained in an interview that while Ladybug, Cat Noir, and their relationship is the main focus of the series, the crew wants to keep expanding the universe, adding new characters and looking deeper into all of the Miraculouses stored in the jewelry box.
