History: (Avengers VII#22 (fb) - BTS) - During the War of the Realms, Asgardian Queen Sindr buried various exotic munitions underground in Turkey including several Muspelheim Grub Mines.

(Avengers VII#22) - After the Muspelheim Grub Mines appeared in Turkey, seemingly hungry, Wakanda's Okoye helped deal with the Grub Mine threat by sending the Avenger She-Hulk to destroy the creatures. When Iron Man and Thor, who was familiar with the Muspelheim Grub Mines as "nasty little monsters," arrived, Thor asked how Okoye was disarming the Grub Mines and Okoye motioned towards She-Hulk, who was ripping one of the Grub Mines in half. Okoye then remarked that they were disarming the Grub Mines "effectively." Iron Man then asked why they had been summoned there, as mines were no longer his specialty.
