The heroes have just invaded Fuuten’s underwater city. Where it went about as well as you imagined. The number of heroes dead or missing after those battles are like 15. With a lot of big ones in that list. Like Thor. Fuuten, at near death, offered the cosmic Awareness power to Lanthanoid, who took it, and then made to run, but Emet tackled him and threw him into the sun. Doom followed trying to get the power, but Emet knocked him into the sun. Doom teleported himself away and Emet and Fuuten died.
After this, everyone returned home. Dr. Doom ruled Latveria for a while, but then a magical disturbance happened and Doom went missing, presumed dead.
A lieutenant of his took over Latveria and started selling Doom’s arsenal to supervillains and terrorist groups. Nick Fury put together a group of superheroes together and invaded Latveria. He successfully ousted the lieutenant but this created a huge diplomatic issue when the next democratically elected ruler of Latveria threatened retaliation and just in general made a huge deal out of it. This looked particularly bad on superheroes because it looked like they just could, on a whim, overthrow countries.
About a month after the event, which was covered up by SHIELD and made to look like a revolution, the information was leaked to the US government and the press. It turns out that Nick was supposedly not given permission to do it. Anyways, this got Nick Fury fired. Then he disappeared.
Then about a week after this information on the cause of the destruction of Hartford and what happened to the superheroes was leaked. This reflected badly on superheroes involved.
Around June 2013, The Stamford event happens with Nitro and The Warriors as they are called here. Like the next day, Doctor Doom appears in Latveria, crushes the Latverian military and retakes the throne of the country singlehandedly.
The Stamford event pushes people over the edge and the Superhuman Registration law passes. This causes the superhero Civil War. Without Captain America around however, the Civil War ends up dirty, long and brutal.
Then in November the big reveal happens one day on the news, it is announced that because of his ineffectiveness at dealing with the Civil War, Iron Man would be forced to step down and replaced with a close advisor to the United States Government. The person that leaked the information of the invasion of Latveria, the truth about the destruction of Hartford, and one of the drafters for the registration law will be the new head of SHIELD. This person is Dr. Doom.
So Doom helps the Registration win the Civil War By the end of the month and nearly all heroes become registered. Doom then has all of the United States greatest scientists create an unbreakable supervillain prison and Doom runs SHIELD and the Initiative so well that crime is nearly eliminated from the United States. It’s like Iceland or Japan crime levels. Supervillains flee the US because it’s too dangerous to be a villain there.
On the other side of the world, the Anarchist was taken down after Kazakhstan nearly fell to him. The USSR came in at Kazakhstan’s “request”. With a virtual army of superheroes, they came in embarrassed The Anarchist and proceeded to take over all of the former Soviet Republics in that area and Afghanistan. This was named the Christmas Operation. Two bad Christmas’s in a row…
They were led by a blonde Superman. He’s amazingly powerful. He smashed a mountain in Afghanistan to kill the Taliban that were hiding out in there. The Soviet’s haven’t given a press release about him yet.
The most recent news is that there were some invasions of giant minotaur creatures in Japan, Ireland is doing amazing still. Thanks to Mercury Industries. Finally, there was one other major event. In Iceland, AIM was found. Iron Man visited helped some local superheroes take them out and while Tony was away, a mysterious group busted into his Malibu home and stole 7 suits of Iron Man army. The last place they were tracked to was East Germany
