Much of the Avengers history on Earth-9997 matches that of their Earth-616 counterpart; at the time of humanity's mass mutation on Earth-9997, the Avengers consisted of Captain America, Hawkeye, the Wasp, Giant-Man, Iron Man, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch.

During this point, some of the Avengers continued to mutate due to exposure to the Terrigen Mists, most notably Hawkeye who grew two extra arms. Iron Man, fearing what he may become if mutated, sealed himself in one of his factories and eventually began providing technological support for the United States President Norman Osborn (while secretly building an army of Iron Men robots in a plan to police the world.)

Captain America left the team and began working for S.H.I.E.L.D. after he was forced to kill his long time foe, the Red Skull. He left the group feeling that he was not worthy of their ranks, in spite of their objections.

The final roster of the original Avengers group (consisting of Vision, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Hawkeye, Giant Man, and the Wasp) were soon defending Washington, D.C. from an attack by "Crusher" Creel, aka the Absorbing Man. Creel had absorbed the intellect of the robot known as Ultron. This gave Creel greater, more unlimited abilities. He then used these powers to slay the Avengers and destroy Washington D.C., but was eventually stopped when the Vision infected him with a computer virus and was smashed to pieces when he tried to stall its effect by shrinking down and turning into stone. Vision then distributed the parts of Creel to various members of the super-human community for safekeeping.

The Avengers were then disbanded; however, Tony Stark later built the Iron Avengers, a group of robots that were fashioned after each member of the deceased team. These Iron Avengers were joined by Vision, Captain America and Redwing (Wyatt Wingfoot) and worked for President Osborn (much to Cap's chagrin.) They were primarily used to keep back the ever growing legion of Hydra beings that were gaining foothold in New York City. They later aided Thor in battling Loki and an army of Frost Giants that attacked New York City.

Eventually, with the Skull's invasion of New York City, the Iron Avengers were destroyed by his army. During the battle, New York was visited by the Celestials, who were attacked by Tony Stark and his factory, converted into a giant robot to do battle. He proved to be no match for the powerful beings and was quickly defeated, and died as a result.

The Iron Avengers were later rebuilt and mass produced by King Britain, and put under the charge of Black Knight (Black Bolt's son) to act as defenders of Buckingham Palace and defenders of the Human Torches that burned the Terrigen Mists from the air.

Captain America was eventually slain during Mar-Vell's quest to collect items of power. He and many other dead Avengers eventually aided Mar-Vell in his battle against Death in the Realm of the Dead.

The Iron Avengers (unofficially referred to as the Iron Men) were sent on a mission to check on the Human Torch in the Savage Land and ended up in a conflict with the Toad who ruled there. Toad was eventually defeated, and the Iron Avengers were repaired by Magneto. They were also used in their battle against the newly resurrected Absorbing Man, who had literally absorbed New York City. His defeat (and Earth's survival) was almost lost when the Vision, selfishly wanting revenge, forced Creel to become intangible, but he was soon talked into turning Creel back by Loki and Iron Maiden.

After the battle, the Iron Avengers returned to their posts at Buckingham Palace.

Many of the deceased Avengers were granted entry into Mar-Vell's Paradise, and three of their members -- Captain America, Iron Man and Giant Man -- became members of Mar-Vell's Avenging Host, and acted as angels to bring the deceased to Mar-Vell's realm from the Realm of the Dead.

These deceased members eventually confronted Mar-Vell over the effect Paradise was having on the Negative Zone, and battled during the Kree invasion of Paradise. After the battle, Captain America returned to the Realm of the Dead to live with his family, and Hawkeye was made a member of the Avenging Host.

On Earth, after finally standing up to his father Odin, Loki wished to become a hero and soon took on the guise of Thor and joined with Ransak the Reject and Black Bolt (formerly the Black Knight) as a new team of Avengers. Their fate is unknown.
