The pair put aside their differences and with the help of the Thing's teammate Ant-Man, they defeated the Mad Thinker's minions. Deducing that the Thinker was behind the attack the trio sent him a mocking photograph of them having a good time. This was also followed by a complete strip down of his cell (Fantastic Four Vol 1 395). In the Ultimate Marvel, Mad Thinker (as female named Rhona Burchill) appeared as the villain in the Ultimate X4 miniseries which showed her with an android resembling the Awesome Android which she calls Robby. During this appearance she attempted to steal Cerebro and use it to gain control of all the minds on the planet, but, with the aid of Wolverine, Shadowcat and Iceman, the Fantastic Four were able to distract her until Reed could reprogram Cerebro to cause Rhona to develop the power of empathy rather than control, forcing her to shut Cerebro down or lose herself amid the pain of the world. Though she attempts to escape, Wolverine had cut a certain hose in her escape vehicle, causing it to explode on her when she activates the afterburners (Ultimate X4 #2).

She joined her allies in a joint attack on Ikaris, only too have the far more formidable Eternal slam all of them aside as he took off. Pixie and the others followed Druig as he pursued Ikaris, eventually catching up with their enemy on a tiny island off the coast of San Francisco. Moments after Druig's forces landed, they realized they were on the mutant island nation of Utopia when Ikaris came out accompanied by his new allies, the X-Men (Angel, Beast, Colossus, Cyclops and Wolverine). Pixie and her mind controlled fellow Eternals joined Druig in their fight against Ikaris and the X-Men until the skies darkened, announcing the arrival of the Celestials' deadliest enemies: the Horde. Alerted by the arrival of the Horde, Thena, Zuras and all available Eternals realized they had to join the rest of their people in San Francisco. Druig was so focused on fighting the Horde threat, he inadvertently released Pixie and the others from his mental domination. Pixie stood side by side with Ikaris and Druig as both factions of warring Eternals joined forces, along with the X-Men, to combat the Horde. Ikaris led his brethren to the site of the Dreaming Celestial, planning to form a Uni-Mind which could take over the space god so they could use his power to destroy the Horde. Arriving near the Celestial, Druig suddenly demanded he should be elected Prime Eternal and lead everyone in forming the Uni-Mind. The arrival of Thena, Zuras, Makkari and a score of other Eternals tabled that discussion. Pixie, after the Eternals hadelected Ikaris as Prime Eternal, followed him into the Uni-Mind. Together, they took over the Dreaming Celestial who in turn destroyed the Horde threatening Earth (Eternals IV#7-9).

After shrugging off Spidey's webs, Growing Man was attacked by the other New Avengers (Captain America, Luke Cage, Ms. Marvel, and Wolverine). He grew larger with each of their blows as the heroes tried remembering who he was and how to stop him. When Wolverine sliced off the Growing Man's hand with his Adamantium claws, the hero was pitched into the river, but the robot only grew larger when the Agents of Atlas (Gorilla-Man, Human Robot, Namora, Uranian, Venus, and Jimmy Woo) struck them with their ship's force beam. Namora then grabbed Wolverine and flew him all around Growing Man, claws extended, and the robot fell into pieces in the river (Avengers vs. Agents of Atlas#1).

  • Directly observing Deadpool's confrontation in San Francisco, Bong called -- via pay phone -- his would-be girlfriend Barbara (see comments), telling her he was with a patient, hoping to prove he was serious about his new career, and that she would consider dinner with him. The call was interrupted when the phone was destroyed as a result of the Deadpool-Wolverine battle. When Kitty Pryde, who Deadpool had punched out to provoke the fight, got up and prepared to aid Wolverine, Bong distracted her, offering a group hug (along with Deadpool's ally Ilaney Brükner) as an alternative to fill the void in her life she filled with violence. Bong then surprised Kitty and trapped her within a force field out of which she could not phase. As Deadpool continued to have hallucinations despite the battle, he asked Bong what was going on, and Bong told Deadpool he was poised on the brink of a breakthrough and was gaining control of the hallucinations and was poised on the brink, and that he should address his issues. When Kitty called out to Wolverine, Bone silenced her with a clapper to the force field, promising to deal with her issues, such as her relationship with such an older man, after he was done with Deadpool. As Wolverine told Deadpool his problem was just going through life, tearing a hole through whatever and whoever got in his way, without caring about responsibility or compassion, Bong discussed with Ilaney how Wolverine could perform such a lengthy speech during a single leap. Nonetheless, Bong - stunning Kitty yet again -- concluded and advised Deadpool that his recent perceived failure in destroying the Messiah had caused his mind to reflect on all of the various and sundry betrayals, violence, and other mistakes he had made in his darkest moments. Bong further told Deadpool that his mind had redefined those moments as opportunities for peace that had been stolen from him and that the rabbits represented those lost opportunities, just out of reach; and that the woman -- who was pouring liquor into milk in the hallucinations -- represented Deadpool's own poisoning of his once-promising life. Deadpool accepted much of this but realized he knew the woman, though he still could not recognize her. As the hallucinations faded, Bong, considering the mission a success, couldn't wait to tell Barbara as he felt he was going to get "so lucky," after which he transported Deadpool and Ilaney back to his base. Bong hoped to complete his report with the identity of the woman from the hallucinations, but Deadpool told him it was just a woman who had stolen his heart before she died (Deadpool#27).

  • After studying more about Scythian through the ancient texts, villainous Kologoth learned of a way to set him free from his imprisonment, and set out to do so to use Scythian as the instrument of vengeance against the world that made him an outcast. Kologoth's forces were in the middle of a battle against the X-Men (Storm, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Kitty Pryde and Colossus) when Scythian was awaken and began to rampage through Dartayus.

Having had her own metaphysical journey to reclaim her humanity, Elektra re-trained Wolverine to speak and become a man once more. After he began to recover, the two parted ways, but had developed a strong bond. When Wolverine was captured and brainwashed by The Hand and Hydra, Nick Fury hired Electra to track him and bring him down. Her ties to Hydra, plus her history with Logan, made her the one agent Fury believed could get the job done.
