When a plague turned the world's population into cannibals, War Machine helped the Avengers hold back the infected.[1] As their losses started to pile up, Doctor Doom came to them and offered to give them a cure in exchange for being named Emperor of Earth. Though initially hesitant, they agreed to his demands.[2] The cure in question were his Doomstones, made from a combination of science and alchemy, which were designed to keep the cannibalism dormant inside the wearer. For unknown reasons, War Machine did not wear one.

War Machine assisted in moving uninfected survivors into safety camps where they were outfitted with Doomstones. Despite this, the Avengers were still unsure about Doctor Doom and had a meeting to discuss their next course of action, which War Machine was a part of.[3]

Later on, Hawkeye discovered that Doom was infected himself and that his Doomstones were actually a means for him to turn everyone into cannibals. After activating them, everyone wearing a Doomstone immediately succumbed to the plague. Though War Machine was not among the many to change, he was killed by the infected Doctor Strange and Blade.[4]
