(Cloak and Dagger III#9 (fb)) - Jester was contacted by Dr. Doom, who agreed to provide technical support for Jester if he would assemble and lead a team against the Avengers, the only stipulation being that he could not use any existing Avengers' foes. Passing by Typhoid Mary on the way out, Jester used Doom's equipment to reactivate the Hulk robot and he soon formed the Assembly of Evil by recruiting Hydro-Man and the Fenris Twins with toy emissaries. When he tried to recruit the Leader, the villain sent the Rock in his place. He took the group to recruit Cloak and Dagger, purported Spider-Man foes.
(Cloak and Dagger III#8) - Jester, the Hulk robot, the Fenris Twins, and Hydro-Man attacked Dagger at a New York church. Jester greeted Cloak as he rushed out to assist her.
(Cloak and Dagger III#9) - Jester invited Cloak and Dagger to join them, threatening to kill them if they said no. Later, in disguise, the Assembly hid in a crowd while the Avengers (Captain America, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Thor, Wasp) were holding a press conference and Fenris incited the crowd to anger. When She-Hulk came off the stand to calm them, the Hulk robot held her off while Fenris opened fire on the other heroes. They fired on the exit as well, trapping the civilians, including Ruthie and her mother, inside, and Rock attacked Thor before he could clear the wreckage. When Iron Man tried separating Fenris, Hydro-Man washed over him in a wave of water. The Hulk robot hit She-Hulk with a nozzle from his throat that sprayed anesthetic gas. When Wasp couldn't break through the exit, Cloak and Dagger willingly teleported the civilians out with Wasp accompanying them. As Captain America blocked Fenris' shot, Iron Man managed to knock out Hydro-Man with an electric shock. When Hulk hurt Rock with his hammer, Rock tried grabbing the hammer. She-Hulk revived and resisted a hammer from the robot's head and feathers from his side meant to tickle her. Cap separated Fenris briefly with his shield before Hydro-Man engulfed him, then Fenris knocked Iron Man into the wall. As Rock held on to Thor's hammer, it started pulling him away, bringing him right into Thor's fist. Iron Man returned and zapped Fenris, then pulled Cap out of Hydro-Man. As She-Hulk was hit by a boxing glove from the robot, Wasp, Cloak, and Dagger returned and Wasp noticed Jester sitting in the seats; he gladly unveiled himself, though Wasp then destroyed his robot remote. Hydro-Man managed to engulf Cap, Iron Man, and Dagger before Cloak sucked him inside the cape, taking Iron Man with him. Inside, Hydro-Man panicked at visions of sponge-men eating away at his substance; he was soon returned, unconscious. When Fenris tried shooting Cap, She-Hulk put the malfunctioning robot in the blast's path and it blew apart. Jester hit Wasp with gas-filled exploding popcorn, but she batted the fumes away with her wings. She narrowly avoided Jester's anesthetic fluid, but he knocked her out with his sonic yo-yo after that. Rock sprouted sharp edges to impale Thor, but he hit him with the hammer, breaking the shell into fragments, one of which knocked out Andreas Strucker. Rock thought himself freed of his armor, but he was soon encased again and rushed off in a fury. As the Struckers were restrained, Jester held Wasp at gunpoint and threatened to kill the Wasp unless they let him escape, but Cloak teleported behind him and knocked him over. Despairing, he pretended he was going to shoot himself, but She-Hulk stopped him, realizing it was a toy gun.
