(Champions III#1 (fb) - BTS) - Qureshi Gupta was recruited from Delhi, India, to join the Champions.
(Champions III#1) - Pinpoint took Falcon, Snowguard, Locust, and Bombshell to just outside of Culiacan, Mexico, where they saved human trafficking victims. Speaking rudimentary Spanish, Pinpoint got the victims to safety through a portal. The team reassembled at the Champions Mobile Bunker, and Pinpoint returned the other teams from their missions around the world.
(Champions III#3) - Overwhelmed by the physical fighting and expectations, Pinpoint purposefully avoided the Champions' combat practice, hiding in his room and listening to music. Pinpoint teleported Spider-Man to Dubai at the hero's request, then he told Ms. Marvel where Spider-Man had went, even though Spidey had asked him not to. Pinpoint took Ms. Marvel to Dubai, apologizing to Spider-Man when they arrived. Pinpoint then returned to the C.M.B.
(Champions III#4) - Pinpoint showed up to pick up his fellow Champions after a mission.
(Champions III#5 (fb) - BTS) - During the War of the Realms, Pinpoint activated his portals more than he ever had and he began wearing himself out.
(Champions III#5) - Pinpoint opened a portal to Florida to do a supply run with Power Man. He conveyed to Ms. Marvel that he was wearing himself out. She responded by asking him to go to Brazil to check on Snowguard's team. They met Cyclops and Havok there, and Cyclops chose to accompany them to Australia, when Ms. Marvel, Bombshell, Patriot, and Viv Vision sent out a distress call during their battle with Trolls. Pinpoint returned Cyclops to Havok and Multiple Man, then headed to Brazil.
(Champions III#6) - In Brazil, as the Champions battled the Disir and the Draugr, Pinpoint kept a portal open to get civilians to safety. To protect Red Locust during the battle, Pinpoint sent one of the Disir straight up into the atmosphere during the battle. They soon defeated the villains, then Ms. Marvel stepped down as team leader.
(Champions III#9) - Pinpiont took Dust, Power Man, Red Locust, Nova, and Snowguard to the C.M.B. at the home of Viv Vision, and there they were attacked and knocked out by Ironheart, who was being controlled by Blackheart. Blackheart soon took over the others, turning them to his cause, and Pinpoint brought Brawn back through another portal only to help attack him. Soon Ms. Marvel, Viv Vision, and Spider-Man arrived with the freed Nova, determined to save their teammates.
(Champions III#10) - Spider-Man webbed Pinpoint's face, taking him out of the fight. Soon, the Champions reassembled, back in control of themselves, and they worked together to defeat Blackheart. The team regrouped and prepared for future missions together.
(Outlawed#1) - At Coles Academic High School, the Champions kept watch over a Concerned Future Scientists of America meeting, where Ailana Kabua was speaking, and they were there to protect her against death threats. Soon Roxxon unleashed an Asgardian dragon, and Pinpoint opened a portal to sent Roxxon agents through. Power Man instructed Pinpoint to open a portal directly in front of the dragon so he could surprise it with a punch, and they pushed on with the plan even after the team leaders advised against it. Power Man's chi punch traveled through the portal and ended up hitting Viv Vision, causing her to glow with green energy as he drew all the power in the area into herself against her will. The Champions gathered as many civilians from the area as possible, and Pinpoint's arm was broken in the end of the battle. Though the dragon was defeated, Ms. Marvel was badly wounded.
(Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon#4) - Iron Fist, Fooh, and the Bride of Nine Spiders brought the Spider Dragon to Peng Lai, to be watched over and protected by Pinpoint, who they assured would be safe from the dragon.
(Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon#4 - BTS) - Prince of Orphans helped Pinpoint defeat the undead army that attacked, then he departed with the Spider Dragon.
(Champions IV#1) - When the government passed a law making teenage super heroes illegal, Pinpoint attended a meeting held by the Champions to discuss how to move forward. Justice led a team of C.R.A.D.L.E. agents to disrupt the meeting and the heroes fled. Pinpoint was initially hesitant to open a portal, scared of harming someone again, but he did so to save his friends.
(Champions IV#9) - As the Champions held a public rally to help expose Roxxon's secrets, Pinpoint helped defeat Roxxon mercenaries Fizzle, Naut, Neo-Edge, Py-Rite, and Sneko in the crowd. Later, Pinpoint attended a celebration with the Champions.
