(Spoiler alert)

In FMA, Wrath is the result of Izumi's failed human transmutation. In FMAB, Wrath is King Bradley, who is Pride in FMA. In FMAB, instead of King Bradley, Pride is his adoptive son Selim. FMA's Sloth and FMAB's Sloth are different too. FMA's Sloth is the result of the Elric brother's failed attempt in resurrecting their mother, while FMAB's Sloth is a lazy and buff guy created by the Father

The method to create a homunculus in both series are different too. In FMA, homunculi are created in a failed human transmutation. In FMAB, they're created using pilosopher's stones by the Father
