History

Hawkeye employed his sky-cycle to great success, utilizing its voice-operated, hands-off autopilot steering mechanism to free both hands for use in archery, until it was destroyed in battle. When Hawkeye was appointed the head of the West Coast Avengers, he hired Latham to rebuild the vehicle and act as staff mechanic for the team. As chairman, Hawkeye retained three of the sky-cycles stored in the garage at Avengers Compound. Captain America and the East Coast Avengers soon came to use them as well. They were used by these heroes and other non-flying members of the team for short excursions, or when the supersonic quinjets are either conspicuous or inconvenient. These Avengers-model sky-cycles were designed to use an Avengers Identicard as a key.

A similar design was used by the terrorist organization Genesis Coalition, a seceded branch of Hydra headquartered in South America. The Coalition's troops moved in fast, hovering vehicles called "skycycles" (without hyphen) while patrolling the surrounding lush rain forest. The skycycles were used in conflict with Silver Sable's Wild Pack, and Amy Chen of the Wild Pack disabled one of these vehicles using a disrupter.[2]
