AXIS | Comics

Following Avengers/X-Men War, Captain America decided to form a team of The Avengers with human and mutant superheroes from X-Men. They were almost immediately troubled by Nazi super-villain Red Skull has stepped into war-torn island nation of Genosha to claim the powerful mind of Professor Charles Xavier from his corpse and to create an army to rule world in his vision. With his new-found psychic powers, Skull decides to re-ignite the age-old war between humans and mutants to eradicate the latter race from Earth forever but Avengers Unity Division came in his way.

Red Skull then escaped to Genosha, turning it into a secret mutant concentration camp where his army of S-Men tortures and ran experiments on mutants. Upon hearing about Skull’s activities, mutant terrorist Magneto arrives at Genoshan island nation to confront him only to be captured and tortured by Red Skull. Help came in form of Havok, Rogue and Scarlet Witch, who broke in to help him back to his feet again. In a blind fury, Magneto slays the entire fleet of S-Men assembled there as well as Skull himself with his enhanced power boosts from Mutant Growth Hormone.

Everyone present there thought his menace was end for good, only for the villain to re-appear as the terrifying Red Onslaught. As Red Onslaught, Red Skull spreads his message of hatred worldwide to wage a new "World War Hate". Overwhelmed by Onslaught's power, Wanda Maximoff briefly gave in to him and Magneto were tossed around to one of the camps where he finds Cyclops, Genesis and Kid Omega all captured. Genesis got stabbed by Ahab while Cyclops and Havok were fighting but then Colossus, Nightcrawler and Storm brings the cavalry of other heroes in.

In Los Angeles, The Avengers came across Plantman and are exposed to some sort of rage pheromone emitted by him. This caused Sam Wilson to insult Thor to get hit by Jarnbjorn, then Vision crashing Odinson through Quinjet and Doc Green getting angry. Sunfire suddenly attacks Wasp for no reason at all and then Iron Man finally put a stop to this madness by taking down Plantman. With other fractured teams of The Avengers, Inhumans and X-Men, Iron Man arrives to face Red Skull in his newest form but then the latter unleashes two Adamantium Stark Sentinels on them.

Skull had Tony secretly build those killing machines during Civil War under his evil influence to fight all heroes against his reign. When seriously outmatched by Stark Sentinels, Rogue suggested Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch to cast a spell that would invert Skull's moral axis and let Charles Xavier take over to stop Onslaught but didn't work at first for Nova's lack of experience. They reassembled once again only to fall, when Magneto arrives with an army of super-villains to buy Strange and Wanda time to complete their inversion spell but Stephen is taken out and Doctor Doom stepped in to help complete the spell.

Now their moral axis reversed, major super-villains like Absorbing Man, Carnage, Deadpool, Enchantress, HobgoblinJack O'LanternLoki, Mystique and Sabretooth turned into heroes and Doom was gone. Skull's body was left behind and a stir caused among the heroes regarding whether to wake him up to free Xavier or let The Avengers take custody of him. Meanwhile, X-Men members of Jean Grey School For Higher Learning have gathered from Genosha by Evan Sabah Nur turned a new Apocalypse to rule entire mankind by releasing a gene bomb to wipe out existence of all humans from New York City.

Another Fine Mess

The artwork and the story concept of the series were highly praised even though the whole story might seem a little bit complex and oddly placed. The series was also just a trip to another direction that weren't actually going anywhere while featured the special appearance of some other lesser-known Marvel characters as well.
