Scarlet Witch took away the powers of most of the mutant population, the energy from the lost powers collected in Earth?s orbit and unexpectedly crashed into a local post office in North Pole, Alaska and all but destroyed the town. The Collective was the combined energy of the thousands of mutants that lost their powers during M-Day. The Collective needed Michael Pointer, an employee at the post office who unbeknownst to him was an energy-absorbing mutant whom The Collective wished to use him as a vessel. The Collective could not exist without a body and wished to bring the energy to Magneto to use to avenge the mutant population. Michael however fought every step of the way, and barely was able to hold together the energy.
After the destruction of North Pole, S.H.I.E.L.D sent six trained soldiers with Hulk-buster armor, but the Collective?s easily destroyed them. After quickly crossing the Canadian border, Alpha Flight was ordered to make peaceful talk with him. He attacked Alpha Flight overwhelming them and leaving them for dead. S.H.I.E.L.D was forced to summon the Avengers with Ms. Marvel to halt it's movements in Cleveland, Ohio. Iron Man went alone in attempt to have a peaceful talk with him as well. As the Collective saw Iron Man he stopped his movements for the first time since it landed and informed Iron Man his name was Michael. The two were making progress when Ms.Marvel arrived attacking him. In clashing with the Collective she absorbed a portion of his energy and became Binary once again.
The Avengers divide into two teams: one to discover the exact nature of the threat and the other to handle the physical confrontation. Binary and Iron Man were easily defeated. Eventually Sentry arrived, taking take the Collective into space. The Collective brushed him aside and continues back to Earth. Elsewhere, Vision and Spider-Man were at work at S.H.I.E.L.D collecting Iron Man?s data of the fight as well as comparing it to the old Avengers files located in Vision, also using intel collected by S.H.I.E.L.D. They discoverd Michael?s origins and the source of his power. As the Collective was about to reenter Earth Iron Man and Sentry intercepted him, yet allowed the Collective to continue his quest to the destroyed island of Genosha. The Collective found the de-powered Magneto and began to transfer it?s essence and power to him as only Magneto would be able to harness the full power of the Collective. Magneto desperately tried to fight it off, when the Collective revealed its origins and that the consciousness ofXorn was in control of the energy. The transfer returned Micheal to normal, while the Avengers clashed with the newly powered Magneto. Magneto himself wished to be stopped. A plan was set in motion to use Quake to create a pinpoint earthquake in Magneto?s brain, while Ms.Marvel absorbs the energy and spreads it out. Iron Man then traped the energy into an energy shield and the Sentry tosses it into the sun. Afterwards, Magneto was rendered unconscious and taken into custody with Micheal pointer, who was now aware of his energy absorbing mutant power. As flying away in the helicopter, it explodedMagneto survived the explosion, however Pointer is currently in custody of the Canadian Government and was eventually recruited into joining the new Omega Flight.
