History:

(Mutant X#12 - BTS) - Captain America was reported to be involved with Freedom Force at the Mexican border when Magneto's X-Men were mounting an attack on the Goblin Queen.

(Mutant X#15 (fb) - BTS) - After being approached by Colonel Fury to help SHIELD (Saviors of Humanity by Intervention in the Evolution of Life-form Deviants) round up mutants for the United States government, Cap refused, instead seeking out his mutant allies to join their cause against SHIELD. The remaining members of the Avengers chose to follow SHIELD's orders, and Captain America was declared a traitor.

(Mutant X#15) - Captain America attended Forge's secret planning meeting at Eagle's Nest, along with Sebastian Shaw, Katherine Pryde, Sunfire and the Six. Captain America revealed that Fury had approached him to join SHIELD's mutant hunt, but that he refused to join. After defeating Sunfire, who turned out to be a spy, Cap asked if he could join the Six to help them safe mutants from Nick Fury and SHIELD.

(Mutant X#16) - Cap and the rest of the Six saved the young mutant Jonah Reeves from mutant hating humans. They later went to New Orleans where they met with United Guild leader Gambit, whose brother-in-law Julien Boudreaux betrayed them to SHIELD. During the battle between the Six and invading Bastion-units Gambit's wife Bella Donna died and their daughter Raven got abducted by Julien.

(Mutant X#17) - Havok of Earth-616, who was stuck in his counter-part's body, noted that the Captain America of the Mutant X Universe was not the same man as from his own universe, but couldn't figure out who he really was.

(Mutant X#19) - The Six defended Professor X from Apocalypse's Horseman including former Six member the Fallen, who once again called himself Death. Professor X inadvertently outed the Captain as a mutant to his teammates. Professor X asked the Six to kill all Horsemen, but Havok couldn't do that.

(Mutant X#21) - Havok's attack freed the other members of the Six including Captain America from Xavier's telepathic manipulations.

(Mutant X#22) - Havok's son Scotty later confirmed this to the rest of The Six who didn't get it when Xavier did. The Six then joined forces with Apocalpyse and his Horsemen to fight Shadow King (Xavier) and Mr. Sinister's simulacrums of Galactus and his Heralds.

(Mutant X#23) - While under Mister Sinister's spell, the Captain's greatest fear was used against him tactically. The Red Skull, who had been killed by Cap's predecessor (presumably Steve Rogers), reappeared feeling the need to exterminate the mutant mongrel imposter. The spell ended after Mr. Sinister was killed by Xavier, who betrayed him to create his version of a perfect world himself. He was ultimately defeated by the Six.

  Weeks later the Six discuss what to do next. Cap suggested to improve the bad human/mutant relationship.

(Mutant X#25) - Havok was having second thoughts about keeping the Six together, Cap decided to check in with the Avengers, not mentioning the difference in choices that had lead him to leave them in the first place. He didn't end up making it back to check in with them, getting distracted by meeting his friends (Bloodstorm, Gambit and Iceman), at a pub.

(Mutant X#26 (fb) ) - When the Vault was broken into and Henry Gyrich couldn't raise the Avengers, he called in the Six to retrieve a box that was stolen by the Marauders (Cannonball, Husk, Jubilee, Sunspot, Wolfsbane). Gyrich treated Cap with specific animosity noted by Bloodstorm.

(Mutant X#27) - Captain America attended a meeting of the Six and later joined them on a mission to save Gambit and Bloodstorm.

(Mutant X#28) - Captain America trained with the rest of the Six. He later joined them on a mission in Canada to help Wolverine.

(Mutant X#30) - On the US/Canadian border, the Six were stopped from entering Canada by the Avengers. Black Widow was specifically harsh to the Captain, to which he explained they had a relationship history that he ended up running out on, along with the rest of the team, leaving them to almost die without him. When the Six and Avengers fought each other.

(Mutant X#31 (fb) - BTS) - Captain America knocked out the Six and Avengers all at once.

(Mutant X#30) - Havok, Jean and Wolverine found them later with Cap kneeling besides the others.

(Mutant X#31) - The rest of the Avengers had to exercise extreme restraint not to attack him immediately. The Six insisted on entering Canada, sacrificing the possibility of starting World War IV (no actual mention of what III was), and Cap almost killed everyone on both teams stopping them.

This sent him teetering on the brink of a total melt-down, so when Weapon X's goons attacked the rest of the team who had just arrived at the scene of the previous fight, he completely lost control. As he was exploding with energy, Department H's Doctor revealed all he knew about the Americans' only Super-Soldier; just before Canada pilfered the Americans' super-soldier research while killing its' inventor, the program had experimented on a lone individual who had latent mutancy. Since he couldn't control his resulting powers, and they couldn't control him, the experiment was reported to be killed and destroyed. Out of control again, Cap killed the Doctor and all of Department H with his powers. The eruption of energies from this awakened the Beyonder, who was sleeping at the center of the Earth. Before being ultimately killed by Havok, Cap managed to incinerate the rest of the Avengers. The fight brought the Beyonder to that area of Earth, where he stole Cap's body.

(Mutant X Annual 2001) - The Beyonder brought it back into the Earth to drain Cap's body of it's remnant life force and tap into his mind to learn everything he needed to know about Havok.

BTW Professor X aka Shadow King turned out to be evil after the Six saved him from Apocalypse's Horsemen and Apocalypse, who was kind of a good guy as he saw that the powers wielded by Professor X and Mr. Sinister could wipe out mutants and humans alike, and didn't want that to happen.
