History: (Avengers: Ultron Forever#1 - BTS) - When present-day Avengers Vision and Black Widow were transported through time and space to the alternate future Earth-14831, another transported Avenger, Thor (Jane Foster from the near future of Earth-616), realized Vision and Black Widow were from her recent past and attempted to warn them about the threat of the Qeng Dynasty, only to be stopped mid-sentence by a past Earth-616 incarnation of Thor (Thor Odinson).

(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#6 (fb)) - Due to a glitch in time, Earth-6311's Kang the Conqueror was split into various temporal counterparts, one of which was stranded on present-day Earth-616. Taking the name Mr. Gryphon, this counterpart decided to create for himself the Qeng Dynasty in the present day instead of waiting until his own potential 30th century future to occur. To promote his Qeng Dynasty, Gryphon secretly enlisted known super criminals Cyclone and Radioactive Man and prepared to wait several centuries for his Qeng Dynasty to pay off. Deciding to hurry up the Qeng Dynasty, Gryphon opted to acquire three alien Chitauri artifacts, one of which was being held at Avengers Tower, and upon seeing the Avengers in action, Gryphon decided he needed to have a Qeng Dynasty agent within the Avengers.

(Avengers VI#0/2 (fb) - BTS) - Arranging arranging for the former Avengers Tower to be sold to Gryphon's Qeng Enterprises venture, a monetarily depleted and unaware Tony Stark suggested Vision retrieve any personal effects from Avengers Tower before it was sold.

(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#6 (fb)) - When Vision arrived at Avengers Tower to download data into his artificial brain, Qeng Enterprises' Mr. Gryphon secretly appeared behind vision via temporal portal and planted protocols within Vision's brain that would ensure his loyalty to the Qeng Dynasty.

(Avengers VI#0/2 - BTS) - Vision visited Scarlet Witch and informed her that he had begun visually seeing his past memories as illusory "ghosts" after his walkthrough of Avengers Tower prior to its sale to Qeng Enterprises.

(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#1) - Following Qeng Enterprises' completed purchase of Avengers Tower, Mister Gryphon supervised Qeng Enterprises' cleanout of the Tower and once the last of the cleanup was completed, Gryphon ordered his men to move the old Stark "junk" out of the Tower. When some of the boxes began glowing, Gryphon asked if the cleanup crew had cycled down all of Stark's tech and they assured Gryphon they had just as the boxes all exploded and the alien Chitauri Warbringer appeared. Gryphon commended the Warbringer on being able to channel his energy so far away to Earth and offered to empower Warbringer using ancient Chitauri artifacts. As the Warbringer accepted Gryphon's offer, Gryphon realized Spider-Man (Miles Morales) was watching the encounter  and Warbringer launched Spider-Man out of the Tower, drawing the attention of Iron Man and Captain America (Sam Wilson), whom the Warbringer easily downed.

(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#2 - BTS) - After Warbringer had left and the Avengers recovered, Mr. Gryphon angrily scolded Iron Man, claiming that Avengers Tower was no longer an "Avengers playground." When Gryphon suggested they make an appointment with his office if they wanted one last look around the Tower, Iron Man introduced Spider-Man, Captain America and the newly-arrived Vision to Gryphon, explaining that his Qeng Enterprises had recently purchased Avengers Tower. Captain America assured Gryphon that the Avengers would pay for the damages to the Tower and Spider-Man commented that he had earlier seen someone with Warbringer but now could not recall the person's face or voice. The heroes then rushed off to locate Warbringer, soon finding him in New Jersey, where Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan), Nova (Sam Alexander) and Thor (Jane Foster) joined in the fight against Warbringer, who survived an attack from Thor when Mr. Gryphon opened a portal that prevented Thor's hammer from striking.

(Free Comic Book Day 2015: Avengers (fb) - BTS) - During the newest team of Avengers' first day out, they came across Radioactive Man and a slew of dead bodies. When Ms. Marvel sadly proclaimed that they were too late, Radioactive Man responded by asking if they were too late to stop the collapse of the western economy or the rise of the new Qeng Dynasty.

(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#4 (fb) - BTS) - The Qeng Dynasty paid the mercenary Cyclone a hefty sum to level a casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#4 - BTS) - While battling Cyclone, the Avengers learned that Cyclone had been paid to sow chaos by "the Dynasty." Vision soon confronted Cyclone personally and demanded Cyclone tell him more about "the Dynasty" but Cyclone perceived Vision's words as empty threats until Vision solidified his hand inside Cyclone's chest, downing the criminal. Iron Man informed the other Avengers that Cyclone had only been rendered unconscious until they would shake more information out.

(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#5 - BTS) - During a battle with the criminal Equinox, the Avengers found themselves besieged by temporal counterparts of Equinox, all exclaiming "Honor the Dynasty!" Recognizing the phrase, Thor asked if Equinox was referring to the Qeng Dynasty and after pausing for a brief moment, Iron Man realized that "Qeng" sounded similar to the name of their old foe Kang. At that moment, Mr. Gryphon appeared and turned Vision against his fellow Avengers.

(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#6 - BTS) - Iron Man referred to Gryphon as Kang and demanded to know what he wanted but Gryphon revealed that he wasn't exactly the Kang the Avengers were used to fighting. Gryphon then revealed that he was a temporal counterpart of Kang and that Qeng Enterprises was created to perpetuate his "Qeng Dynasty" of ruling all eras of time. He further revealed that he was controlling Vision via implanted protocols and turned Vision against the other Avengers, planning to acquire Thor's hammer in an effort to siphon its time traveling energy. Before Gryphon could siphon the energy, Captain America's falcon Redwing attacked Gryphon as Captain America and Thor battled Equinox counterparts in another area, all still exclaiming "Honor the Dynasty!" As the battle progressed, Spider-Man defeated Equinox and his counterparts while Iron Man managed to download a system reboot into the Vision's brain when Vision tried to solidify inside Iron Man's heart, thereby erasing Gryphon's Qeng Dynasty protocols from the Vision's mind. Before Gryphon could be soundly defeated, however, he utilized time paradox energy to drag the Avengers up and down their own timeline, gloating that he would retreat and later return with Qeng reinforcements. Vision, back in his right mind, confronted Gryphon and the two battled one-on-one until Thor decided to harness the power of time paradoxes by banging together her lost hammer that Gryphon had tried to siphon and its future counterpart, the temporal shock of which hurled Mr. Gryphon into the timestream.

Comments: Created by Mark Waid and Adam Kubert (although the Qeng Dynasty was first mentioned in a book by Al Ewing, Alan Davis and Mark Farmer).

The mention of Qeng Enterprises in the digital comic (which was later printed in the Avengers TPB: Back to Basics) Avengers: Back to Basics I#3 is dubious at best. The Back to Basics storyline referenced several events that occurred on Earth-616 but a glaring error in the story is a flashback to the Infinity War that shows numerous continuity errors if the Back to Basics story truly does take place on Earth-616.

Interesting how the Thor in Avengers: Ultron Forever#1 (2015) attempted to warn Black Widow and Vision about the Qeng Dynasty. That would place Thor in that story as being in the near future, likely right after the events in All-New, All-Different Avengers I#6 (2016).

I apologize for the one lonely image but Qeng Enterprises as a whole wasn't really seen a whole lot. It was pretty much just Mr. Gryphon being seen a lot and lots of others mentioning Qeng Enterprises/Qeng Dynasty...

Online sources list Qeng Enterprises as being mentioned in the Avengers: Back to Basics digital comic#3 but Mr. Gryphon is the only one who appears in that issue and he doesn't mention Qeng. However, the Back to Basics storyline has odd continuity (such as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers & the Guardians of the Galaxy appearing in a flashback to the Infinity War, where they battle a modern-costumed Magus, for example) so the whole Back to Basics storyline may be set in a reality other than 616...
