Hulkling was one of the superheroes who survived Thanos's invasion, during which the Mad Titan murdered almost half of Earth's heroes. Teddy was one of the handful of heroes that took part in the final attack that killed Thanos, stabbing him with Excelsior.[1]

Roughly thirty years later, Teddy had assumed the alias of "King Hulk", and continued operating as a member of the A.V.E.N.G.E.R.S. Initiative.[2]

The Avengers confronted their biggest threat ever when the evil wizard Moridun took full control of Demiurge's mind after having spent several years germinating inside it. After an initial confrontation against Moridun led to a disastrous result in the form of the deaths of three Avengers, the surviving heroes took advantage of hole opened in the timespace of the past and traveled there in order to stop Moridun from taking control of Demiurge in the first place.[3]

After arriving to the Avengers Island of the New Avengers, Captain America explained the situation to the local heroes. The Demiurge from this time arrived and confronted the future Avengers, due to being under the influence of Moridun, leading to a fight between the two Avengers teams. King Hulk tried to convince his past counterpart, Hulkling, to kill Demiurge while he was weakened, but Hulkling resisted. In the end, King Hulk's past self was was able to reach out to Demiurge in his mindspace, prompting the young hero to fight against Moridun's control and ultimately expel the evil wizard from his mind.

Demiurge's victory over Moridun caused a temporal divergence that sent the future Avengers back to the future, albeit a peaceful one.[4]
