First created in 1969's Uncanny X-Men #54 by writer Arnold Drake and artist Don Heck, Havok was depicted as the more volatile Summers brother, who eventually led the federal government-sponsored mutant team X-Force. Eventually, Alex would reconcile with his brother and lead the Unity team of the Uncanny Avengers, combining members of the X-Men and Avengers in the wake of the crossover storyline Avengers vs. X-Men.

Marvel's Contest of Champions is available on the App Store and Google Play for iOs and Android devices.
