Story Edit

Gamma Attack! Edit

When the Leader attacked Avengers Academy, he controlled A-Bomb and Red Hulk's minds to help him take over the Academy. Iron Man, Wasp and Loki defeated him and successfully broke his mind control over him. After that, A-Bomb joined the Academy as a full-time student.

After joining the Academy he was approached by Black Widow. She contacted him to help her with further exploration of the timefog. A-Bomb joined Black Widow because he wanted to see if the Hulk was trapped or not.

Later, both he and Red Hulk scared the Leader off.
