Deluge is a member of the Avatars and servant of the Mandarin. His real name and origin are shrouded in mystery but Deluge and the rest of the Avatars appear to be empowered by mystical forces. Deluge and the rest of the Avatars would attack the citizens of Hong Kong and cause massive destruction in their wake. Deluge and the rest of the Avatars attract the attention of Force Works after they attack the Eastern Division of Stark Industries and Suzi Endo makes a distress call for help. The Mandarin and his Avatars planned to plunge the civilized world into the feudal dark ages by destroying all technology. The Avatars would engage Iron Man, War Machine and Force Works on several occasions during this adventure. The Mandarin and his Avatars would establish a bridgehead in Hong Kong where they planned to expand the deadly anti-technology field with the help of Century's staff, Parallax. The Mandarin's goal of world domination is thwarted when Iron Man infects him with the techno-organic virus. The Mandarin begins to age at an accelerated rate and he accidentally touches Deluge in the process. The Mandarin's hands burn with energy and he turns Deluge into dust. The rest of the Avatars vanish when the Mandarin meets his apparent demise.
Deluge was created by Andy Lanning, Dan Abnett and Dave Taylor in 1994 and first appeared in Force Works # 6.
