As time pasted, Eden began to yearn for a greater importance and purpose for his new found abilities. An opportunity arose when Gateway informed him that a team of secrete warriors, working for Nick Fury, would be coming to recruit him. However, Gateway flat out denied him the right to leave, much to his dismay.
Eden later accompanied Gateway in rescuing some of the secret warriors who had come to recruit him. And after doing so, Gateway allowed him to partner with them, knowing that he would be protected.
After returning to Australia, due to Gateway's death, Eden was recruited Steve Rogers and Tony Stark to join a global expansion sect of the Avengers. He operates as the Avenger's main source of travel, having to teleport large parts of the team from country to country or planet to planet.
