Still nobody knows how but the number of people born with mutant powers is on the rise and with the introduction of the X-Men and The Avengers, those growing with superpowers start to take them onto the streets to fight crime for themselves and the story begins when a gang calling themselves The New Warriors try to apprehend a group of third-rate supervillains, resulting in the destruction of several city blocks in Stamford, Connecticut. In reaction to the event, Johnny Storm of the Fantastic Four is beaten into a coma outside a city nightclub.
The government proposes a Superhuman Registration Act as the public cry for justice, labelling all superheroes/mutants/villains alike dangerous. Tony Stark and Nick Fury try to prevent the Avengers from being disassembled but find themselves replaced by the most unlikely of people, senator and former Green Goblin Norman Osborn and new S.H.I.E.L.D director Maria Hill.
With the control of every hero and mutant underway, Osborn sets his plans to seize control of all America but seeing what his plans involve (using dangerous mutant convicts to assume control the country as the Avengers and X-Men are wrongfully imprisoned in The Raft), Captain America and the remaining Avengers go underground in an attempt to stand for America against the corrupt totalitarian threat.
Heroes are turned against heroes and the few remaining Avengers, X-Men and a plethora of Marvel legends, friend and foe alike, stand off against the greatest superpower the world has ever seen.
And an unlikely ally in The Punisher rescues Spiderman from a hit and offers his help, but his hired help, Stuart Clarke, a former foe of Tony Starke, is secretly intent on getting his revenge, as is New York's own Kingpin of Crime!
