During the super-hero Civil War (or just after), he was asked to join and lead California's Initiative team. imbued with "all the power of a supercell thunderstorm" and given the name Anthem, he's been made the Apollo of the team, acting as a rallying point for the group. [1]

During their first mission, against the "Infernal Man," he led the team to a win, but almost at the cost of Corona's life.[1]

When it was learned that four of the members of the team had gone out drinking after the party, he debated with Stark and co-leader Pepper Potts over whether to fire those members. While he didn't agree with Stark and Potts about the firing, he ultimately accepted it and fired the four members, replacing them with Mulholland Black, Milo Fields, Rebecca Ryan, and Magdalena Marie.
