History:

(Iron Man IV#15 (fb) - BTS) - Indonesian-based terrorist cell the Jemaah Islamiyah was equipped with Pervakov-VII Aerosol Bomb, armed with Venox compound, which, if detonated, would unleash a biological weapon on hundreds. Though through various sources, the bomb was provided by Karim Mahwash Najeeb for personal reasons.

(Iron Man IV#15 (fb)) - Members of the terrorist cell attacked the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia, holding dozens hostage at a matinee performance of Don Giovanni. The terrorists demanded the release of 34 of their compatriots who were being held in the Barwon Supermax. Within minutes, armed and camouflaged SHIELD agents responded, taking down the gunmen without any casualties. One of the terrorists still managed to disarm the bomb, though Iron Man managed to contain it.
