The Holy Sepulchre Orphanage Sister Maria de la Joya discovered a wounded and amnesiac Joseph and nursed him back to health. He stayed in the orphanage for a while, but his magnetic powers and their lethal uses started to terrify the children. Maria informed him that he should find the X-Men to find people like himself. Some time following Joseph's departure, Maria was targeted by an unnamed metallic creature. "He" was looking for Joseph and wanted information from Maria. She persistently tried to escape to protect herself and Joseph from this terror. When cornered, she used a stone to hit him. "He" was enraged and attacked, but two giant slugs appeared and started feeding on him. Maria had been rescued by Maggott, who was also looking for Joseph.
Leper Queen was captured in Guatemala, having butchered two little girls, killing one and letting the other condemned. As she was on the electric chair waiting for death, her only regret was that she wouldn't see her second victim dead. The preacher who was giving her the absolution was in fact Reverend Craig of the Purifiers, and the guards, executioner and witnesses of the execution were quickly killed for the Leper Queen to be freed and exfiltrated by the Purifiers. She was taken to the Purifiers' base and stayed restrained until Bastion started to use Magus to infect her with the Techno-Organic Virus, and then integrated her among his Human Council.
Horizon Labs were led to a location in Guatemala in which they must defeat the Octobot-controlled Avengers. During the initial stages of the battle, Spider-Man realized that all the inventions he had created at Horizon Labs (ranging from his Cryo Cube, a helmet design, and a noise reduction system) had been used and corrupted by Doctor Octopus. Spider-Man, Silver Sable and Black Widow face off against Dr. Octopus' new Sinister Six, the Avengers. Taking personal control of each of them in turn, Doc Ock was surprised when he took control of Thor and could no longer hold Mjolnir. With an electromagnetic pulse, Mysterio managed to help Spider-Man freeing the Avengers from Doctor Octopus' mind control. Thor, Iron Man and Red Hulk instantly took to the air to try and stop the rest of the satellites from entering Earth's orbit. Mysterio told Spidey and Silver Sable where Doc Ock's lab was and where he would find his vehicle to get there.
After the battle with Doctor Octopus, the Avengers searched the ocean to confiscate Doc Ock’s technology and to find Silver Sable, who had sacrificed herself in order to allow Spider-Man to defeat Doctor Octopus. Spider-Man took a double shift, but Black Widow took over, saying that Captain America needed him on the surface.
