In the wake of the war between the Avengers and the X-Men, Captain America asked himself a tough question – had he done enough to help mutants? The answer led him to create a sanctioned Avengers team comprised of both Avengers and X-Men – humans and mutants working together as the Avengers Unity Squad! Cap and Thor sought out Havok, the younger brother of imprisoned mutant leader and future revolutionary Cyclops, to act as team leader and represent mutants. The team’s roster included mutant Avenger Scarlet Witch, as well as prominent X-Men members Wolverine, Logan and Rogue, Anna Marie. The team’s first enemy came in the form of Captain America’s arch nemesis the Red Skull, who had stolen the brain of the recently deceased X-Men founder Professor X to use for his tyrannical anti-mutant schemes.
