Abstract: One of the interesting features of Ultraluminous X-ray sources is that manyof them are surrounded by luminous nebulae exhibiting diverse observationalproperties. In different cases the nebulae are photoionized or shock-powered.Generally, the two energy sources appear to coexist. ULX bubble nebulae may beconsidered a new class of shock-powered nebulae similar to upscaled versions ofstellar wind bubbles. Their expansion rates support constant energy influxrather than single powerful events like Hypernova explosions.
