This version of Aries was a Life Model Decoy created along with an entirely new Zodiac team created by Scorpio (aka Jake Fury) using the Scorpio Key. During the battle Moon Knight and Nighthawk were able to cause Aries to slam into a wall knocking it unconscious. The Aries LMD was taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody following the battle.

During an underwater battle near Avengers Mansion with a team of the heroes, the Aries and Taurus LMDs were flung out into the river and apprehended by the authorities
