(Motormouth Remix#3 and/or #4) - On Earth-94503, the Secret Empire defeated Captain America and drove the president to commit suicide. Since the Vice President was also the Secret Empire's Number 2, the Empire effectively took control of the United States whjen he was sworn in as the new president. He swiftly banned all superhuman activity, except for the government sanctioned new Captain America, John Walker, and his duped watchdog, the naive reality traveler Killpower of Earth-616. Steve Rogers, the former Captain America, assumed the identity of Nomad and started a rebellion against the corrupt government, backed by the Avengers for Freedom.
Comments: Created by Rafael Marin and Carlos Pacheco.
Intended as a four issue miniseries, Motormouth Remix is another of the stories planned for Marvel UK that was lost thanks to the line's implosion during the mid-1990s. Solicits in Comics International#38 listed the series was to start in March 1994, the overall plot for the series had been hashed out, and the first issue had been written and at least partially penciled, when the axe fell. The series was intended to show Motormouth hunting for a missing Killpower across Marvel's multiverse; though four issues, it was intended to be split into three chapters, one for each of the realities visited. As such, this reality would presumably have featured in the fourth, and perhaps third, issues.
Pacheco revealed some of the first issues' pages along with character designs on his Twitter account. Apart from the small amount of information these provide regarding the characters and realities involved in the story, they also show a framing sequence that appears to show a Watcher (Uatu?) discovering the body of another, slain Watcher who died while viewing alternate realities, and discovering a crystal lying on the floor nearby within which can be seen visions of the Green Goblin murdering Aunt May in the "Spider Punisher" reality. Someone, possibly still the living Watcher, but perhaps not, is then seen holding that or an identical crystal while moving pieces on a three dimensional chess board; said chess board looks to be the same as the one Merlyn and Roma used while playing against one another in Alan Moore and Davis' Captain Britain run, down to the pieces being characters from the realities Motormouth was about to visit. Given that Merlyn had been revealed to still be alive and manipulating events back in 1992's Excalibur I#50, the chess board's presence may be evidence that Roma and/or Merlyn were involved in the tale, perhaps manipulating Motormouth to visit these realities as a pawn in the Omniversal Protectors' games.

Avengers for Freedom
The Avengers for Freedom - el Aguila, Black Panther, Giant Man, Jean Grey, Hawkeye and Wong - were Nomad's allies in the rebellion against the Secret Empire-ruled United States of America.
Comments: Though not identified by name in the
artwork, most of the Avengers for Freedom are still easily recognizable
despite their costumes differing somewhat from their 616 counterparts.
Wong is likely a sorcerer, and maybe even Sorcerer Supreme, given he is
apparently wearing the Eye of Agamotto, but it is possible he's instead
relying on his martial arts skills and is wearing the Eye to honor a
slain Dr. Strange. Hawkeye and Giant Man are in costumes similar enough
to their 616 versions to be identifiable, and though the lack of
cat-cowl briefly made me pause, the gloves and cape clued me in to Black
Panther's identity. I thought the swordsman was Aguila based on his
specific type of blade, but wasn't certain until I saw that Carlos
Pacheco had confirmed his identity on Twitter. That just leaves the
female member, whose hair and headpiece look very much like what Jean
Grey had in the 1990s; however, the costume is less of a helpo, and the
SHIELD belt buckle and gun (something the telekinetic Grey normally
wouldn't bother with) do make me question this last identification.
However, in the absence of further evidence, I'm going to stick with it
being Grey for the moment. Obviously this being an alternate reality
group, any or all of them could have different codenames, and the
Panther might be someone other than T'Challa.
Wanting their own Captain America to replace Steve Rogers, the Secret Empire gave the role to the villainous John Walker.--Motormouth Remix#3

Having come to Earth-94503 under unrevealed circumstances, Earth-616's Killpower was tricked, brainwashed or mind-controlled into becoming the watchdog for the Secret Empire's villainous Captain America, John Walker.--Motormouth Remix#3
