Major Story Arcs
Agents of Atlas
The Agents of Atlas (Jimmy Woo, Gorilla-Man, M-11, Marvel Boy and Venus) were sent to the jungles of Cuba to investigate a weapon being developed by the Yellow Claw - the Mindbugs. They encountered Wolverine, who was in the area searching for his friend Hendricks. After saving Jimmy Woo from one of the Mindbugs, Wolverine joined forces with the misfit heroes and they searched the jungles for the mysterious bugs.
They eventually found Hendricks, who attempted to trick them into surrendering their wills to the Mindbugs as Atlas and Wolverine fought against an onslaught of the monsters. In the midst of it all, Hendricks attempted to shoot Jimmy Woo only to be stopped by M-11. When Marvel Boy revealed the effects of the Mindbugs were irreversible, Wolverine killed his friend out of mercy as M-11 incinerated the attacking hordes. Believing the threat over, Atlas and Wolverine parted ways, unbeknownst to them that several Cuban revolutionaries had already been made slaves to the Mindbugs.
