History:  (Avengers Annual#12) - Ambassador Ling met with numerous other National Security Council ambassadors for a trial of the Fantastic Four concerning the presence of the Inhumans in the Blue Area of the Moon. As the Avengers were also called in, Ambassador Ling explained that according to their information, the Inhumans had once lived in the Himalayas in China. Ling quickly asked Mister Fantastic why his country was not told of their presence in China and also why the N. S. C. had not been informed. Reed informed the ambassadors that the Inhumans left due to Earth's pollution and offered to the N. S. C. that if they would like some sort of assurance that the Inhumans meant no threat, that the Fantastic Four would happily travel to the moon for them. Ling angrily announced that the Fantastic Four had already acted without the N. S. C.'s approval when they helped the Inhumans get to the moon and that if anyone was to go to the moon, it would be the Avengers.
