Force Works was composed of the remains of the West Coast Avengers.
Shortly after the death of Mockingbird, the West Coast Avengers disbanded, understandably Hawkeye left while in mourning the death of his wife, War Machine went solo, and the rest were removed from the Avengers charter after the events of Crash and Burn. The team was reformed as Force Works by Iron Man, US Agent, Scarlet Witch, Wonder Man, Spider Woman (currently Arachne), and later the alien Century and for a brief time War Machine joined the team, but chose to leave due to personal problems with Iron Man.
After the events of the Civil War, the name Force Work's was given to The Initiative team from Iowa as part of the 50-state Initiative. The members of this current team are still unknown.
During Arno Stark's hostile takeover of Stark Unlimited and the crack down on the rights and liberties of A.I., the military sponsored a team taking the name Force Works to quell robot uprisings that were popping up around the world. Maria Hill commanded the team from HQ while War Machine led the team in the field.
When Mockingbird went silent during her undercover mission in South America, War Machine, USAgent, and Quake were sent in to rescue her, only for all four of them to be kidnapped by an army of Deathloks created by MODOK. They narrowly defeated MODOK when Rhodey took control of the Deathloks command processor and became their leader.
The team was disbanded immediately when they refused to turn over the Deathlok schematics to Hill.
