After a number of the Avengers were killed in Washington, D.C. by the Absorbing Man, Tony Stark had built a number of robots based on those who died. Among those was one based on the Scarlet Witch. The original Scarlet Witch robot was fashioned with a personality much like that of her human namesake, and was part of a group led by the Vision called the Iron Avengers.[citation needed]

After sweeping a section of New York City of Hydras, and battling Frost Giants, the Iron Avengers were all destroyed by the Skull's invading army. The Iron Avengers were later rebuilt by King Britain, although apparently without any personalities based on the Avengers they represented, they were also mass produced to be a large army of robots. This new robot, dubbed the Crimson Sage, defended Buckingham Palace from the attacking Tong of Creel. It was later charged with aiding the Black Knight in investigating why the Human Torch in the Savage Land went out.[citation needed]

This brought them into conflict with the Toad, who had switched mutant powers with Magneto and put the Crimson Sage under his control until the Iron Maiden restored the Vibranium balance in the Savage Land, restoring the Toad to normal. The Crimson Sages were used in battling the resurrected Absorbing Man after he literally absorbed all of New York.[citation needed]

Following this, the Iron Avengers had a lesser presence in the happenings on Earth-9997, but at least one Crimson Sage was present during the wedding of King Britain and Medusa.[citation needed]
