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, Hobgoblin, Jack O'Lantern, Loki, 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.

"AXIS" or better known as "Avengers & X-Men – AXIS" is a 2014 superhero crossover event from Marvel Comics that ran into a limited series of nine issues. Marvel hired renowned writer Rick Remender (Crawl Space – XXXombies, Fear Agent) to put him solely in charge on core series along with artists Adam Kubert (Amazing Spider-Man – Renew Your Vows, Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine), Leinil Francis Yu (New Avengers, Secret Invasion), Terry Dodson (Generation X, Uncanny X-Men) and Jim Cheung (Avengers – The Children's Crusade, Avengers Vs. X-Men) to back him up with illustrations. With almost every other superhero on Earth assembling to stop Red Skull, "AXIS" becomes one of the biggest crossovers of recent years.
