(Fantastic Four III#23 (fb) – BTS) – The Red Skull and Mad Thinker used mind-altering nanites to convert civilians to their cause as agents of S.K.U.L.L.

 (Fantastic Four III#23 (fb)) – Having tracked the source of mind-altering nanites to San Diego, Human Torch and Caledonia took Franklin Richards to the San Diego Comic Con while Mr. Fantastic, Puppy, Marvel Girl and Invisible Woman investigated the nanites' source at an industrial plant nearby. At the Comic Con, S.K.U.L.L. agents released the Awesome Android and  infected the special guest Avengers with the nanites, causing them to go on a rampage through the convention. Mr. Fantastic, Marvel Girl and Invisible Woman soon after teleported into the convention, releasing an electromagnetic pulse designed to disable the nanites, freeing the heroes from the nanites' influence. Invisible Woman then launched the Awesome Android out into the ocean, where the heroes found the warship housing the Red Skull and the Mad Thinker. The two villains held off the Fantastic Four and their allies long enough to escape when their warship transformed into a heli-carrier.

(Fantastic Four III#23 (fb) - BTS) – The Fantastic Four managed to neutralize the nanites in all those infected, including those who had been forced to serve as agents of S.K.U.L.L.
