After being held captive for months the Super-Adaptoid was freed by the Fixer and set out to get his revenge on the Avengers. He first recruited the Awesome Android to his cause and used the Fixers brilliant mind to reprogram him. He then confronted Machine Man and offered to fix his long lost love Jocasta if he would join his team. Machine Man accepted and they went to the panhandle of Texas and reprogramed Sentry 459 and then reprogramed the TESS-One robot. They then went to Hydrobase and attacked the Avengers that dwelled there. Unknown to the other members of the team the Adaptoid was merely looking for information on the Cosmic Cube. He found the information he needed and summoned Kubik, a cosmic being that evolved from the cube. Meanwhile the members of the team began to lose one by one, except for Machine Man who joined the Avengers to fight the Adaptoid after he copied Kubiks powers and became almost omnipotent. The Adaptoid eventually lost the battle and the androids and robots were sent to a secure location.
