History: (Avengers VI#7 (fb) - BTS) - The Champions of Anamelech were a group of young girls who made a pact with the demon Anamelech, periodically sacrificing others to the demon in exchange for future power and influence. The Champions of Anamelech's activities were noticed by Iron Man (Victor von Doom), who wished to investigate further but tracked the Champions to the Susan Storm Camp for Girls' Leadership, a place he dared not infiltrate.
(Avengers VI#7) - After Iron Man recruited the
Avengers to help investigate the disturbances at the Susan Storm Camp
and the Wasp infiltrated the Camp, the Wasp found the Champions sitting
in a candlelit circle inside one of the Camp's cabins. Suspecting the
seemingly innocent girls to be the cause of the mystic disturbances
sensed by Iron Man, the undercover Wasp asked to join the girls, who
each announced what their perceived future positions of influence and
power before tricking Wasp into voluntarily walking into the
sacrificial circle. Still connected to Iron Man via magic despite being
unable to use her powers, Wasp summoned the other Avengers and Iron Man
demanded that the Champions release Wasp. The Champions refused,
explaining that the demon Anamelech had promised them favor in exchange
for killing the Avengers. Following a brief battle, Iron Man cast the
Flames of the Faltine through Wasp's Pym Particle projectors, banishing
Anamelech's influence from Earth and nearly banishing the Champions'
leader before the leader was rescued by Wasp.
