The Thunderbolts was a team composed by the superheroes who went against the Registration Acts during the Civil War. They were forced to undertake suicide missions in order to buy time off their prison sentence. The team was composed by Goliath, Invisible Woman, the Punisher, Spider-Man, and Steve Rogers, who had been stripped of his title as Captain America after being beaten by Iron Man.

Contest of Champions

When President Stark and his Mighty Avengers were kidnapped by Maestro, a Hulk from an alternate dimension, the Thunderbolts were sent by Reed Richards to Battlerealm, a broken section of space-time at the edge of everything to where the teleport trail left behind by Maestro led to.[1]

As soon as they arrived, the Thunderbolts found themselves battling against the Mighty Avengers, whose memories had been altered by Maestro, and the unwilling contestants of Maestro's Contest of Champions. Amidst the battle, Iron Patriot killed Steve Rogers, shocking everyone present, mainly Invisible Woman, who had fell in love with Rogers during their time as Thunderbolts. Generating an expanding force field inside the Iron Patriot Armor, Invisible Woman destroyed it from within, revealing an Infinity Stone in Stark's chest. Stark revealed that was the Reality Stone, and that he had been using it to subtly manipulate reality in his favor back in their home reality. He tried to use it to subdue his enemies, as well as his own allies, and make them forget what he had revealed to them, but it didn't work. Stark was then crushed by Maestro, who revealed to him that the Infinity Stones just worked on their native universe before proceeding to finish him off.

Maestro challenged the remaining contestants, as well as his allies, to defeat him, but they were no match for him. However, Maestro's victory was cut short with the help of two contestants he believed dead: Stick from Earth-616 and the Sentry of Earth-1611. While the rest of the contestants were fighting Maestro, Outlaw snatched the ISO-Sphere from him and wished the contest to be over. The ISO-Sphere was destroyed, the contestants were teleported to whichever place they wanted to be, and Maestro was sent to a cell in the Collector's museum.

While the contestants native from Earth-616 were sent back to their reality, the remaining members of the Thunderbolts, the Mighty Avengers and the Sentry decided to stay behind in Battleworld to protect its deposit of Iso-8 from any interdimensional invaders who attempted to get their hands on it, and thus was born the Civil Warriors.[2]
