As the Avengers along with some surviving villains battle to contain the infection from spreading into world, things begin to go from bad to worse with Fury explaining that he doesn't have any backup since most of his troops and agents being to become infected on the Helicarrier and that the infection is spreading across America and many other parts of the world. This causes the Avengers to have little to no help at when dealing with the infected. During a battle with an infected Juggernaut, Doctor Doom appears, killing Juggernaut and explaining to the Avengers that he has the cure to the infection and that he will give to them if they let him rule the world. At first, the Avengers refuse, knowing that it can be a trick and begin to fight Doom, only for an infected Hercules to appear with other infected superpowered individuals. This shocked the Avengers, since they thought that Hercules can't be infected due to him being a god. The infected group begin to attack the Avengers, causing the Avengers to have heavy losses and forcing the Avengers to ask Doom for assistance and that they will take his offer, causing Doom to go and kill the infected and Hercules, After the battle, the Avengers were forced to bow down to Doom as their new ruler, as Doom gives the Avengers doomstone collars, which contains a doomstone that acts the cure to the infection, and task the avengers to look for survivors and take them to the safe zone, where they will be given a doomstone, while also tasking them to look for cannibals and force the cannibals wear the stones to be cure them, but to no result.

While attempting to mind control Hawkeye to be eaten, Hawkeye managed to escape and tried to informed the other Avengers that Doom tricked them, but his messaged couldn't reach them due to Doom jamming the signal, and activates the infection to Red Hulk, causing Red Hulk to attack Iron Man, and later the infection spreads to the other Avengers.

Marvel Universe Vs The Punisher Arc
In Marvel Universe Vs the Punisher, five years had past since the outbreak of infection has begun., with little to no sign of cannibalistic acts have been happening ever since then. The arc opens on Day 1,813 of the plague, the Punisher has been hunting and killing Deadpool down for the thirty-third time, and begins to explain in his war journal that every time he kills him and puts him in unescapable things to make Deadpool stop healing, that he is often freed by unknown individual, and decides to chop up Deadpool's body into pieces and buried them in different locations to make sure that Deadpool doesn't heal himself. The Punisher also explained that before the cannibalistic symptoms began to show, doctor and scientists had discovered the DNA alterations caused by Survivor-118, but did nothing about it and there was no reports about it on news media, due to no symptoms of the DNA alteration not showing and not affecting anyone, and it wasn't until incident involving Spider-Man that they began to look into it and that media began to report about it. However, even when symptoms began to be shown, the media would blame the sudden increase of violence being caused by the cannibals on video games and the economy, and even when bodies began showing up eaten, the media and law enforcement would think that its some kind of serial killer. However, when more cannibalistic reports began to show up and society begins to slowly shut down, people began to panic and cause themselves to accidentally spread infection, causing an increase of infected, that the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., and the national guard to tried and contain the infection but failed in their attempts, and his explanation by stating that he needs to kill all of the cannibals to atone for killing the world. On Day 1,814, the Punisher goes out to track and kill Spider-Man, who he refers to him as "Zero". During the hunt, he find a dead uninfected man with cut on his chest, webbed to floor and his signature skull painted with blood on wall, with the Punisher wondering if this is a trap or an offering. On Day 1830, while continuing his hunt for Zero, he is encountered and attacked by the Hulk. The Punisher battles the Hulk and kills him with a head shot by using an arrow that contains part of Wolverine's claw. As the Punisher was about to explain more about the Hulk, he is interrupted by a cry of help coming from a church to then find a an uninfected priest and boy trapped in hole. While the Punisher is rescuing both of them, he is punched by an infected Venom, who tries to talk to the Punisher but gets killed by him. This causes members of the Zero Tribe, who where with Venom, to try and kill the Punisher, the priest, and the boy in revenge, only to be all killed by the Punisher with grenades while the three make an escape. While taking the priest and the boy to his hideout, the Punisher noticed that Deadpool's grave has been dug up and not pushed up, causing his suspicions of someone interfering to proven true. The priest explain to the Punisher that early days of the plague, he ran a soup kitchen in the Bronx, only for a group of cannibals to enter the kitchen one day and began to eat the dinners, causing the priest to retreat and lead a group of survivors that he tries to save only for some to turn or go missing, leaving his him to care for the boy. Upon arriving to the Punisher's hideout, the priest and the boy were in shock to see the head collection of the Punisher's confirm kills on the each infected he killed. Later that night, Deadpool arrived to the hideout to try and talk with the Punisher, only to be shot by him, to which Deadpool responce by shouting to the Punisher that he has a white flag. While the Punisher is interrogating Deadpool to why he want to talk to him, Deadpool begins to tell the Punisher that Zero sent him to talk over a deal for involving him and the Zero Tribe, to which the Punisher wonders where would Zero want to meet up with him to talk about this deal, only for Deadpool to then say that Zero is already here, and in his hideout. This causes the Punisher to rush back in and see that the priest is tangled up in webbing, and Zero holding the boy as hostage. Zero then tells the Punisher not to shoot him or else he'll infect the boy and the priest with his blood, and to just discuss about the deal, causing the Punisher to lower his gun and Zero to release both the boy and the priest. Zero begins to discuss about the deal and the background to why he is making deal as te Punisher writes in his war journal that Zero told that after the infected have over run New York City. Other infected began to fight for control of the remains of the city by forming tribes, and during the rampage, Zero formed his tribe consisting of people with spider-like abilities, symbiote abilities, arachnid theming, and those who want to join him or not. During this time, the Zero Tribe was the most powerful out of the tribes in New York City, but during the following years, Zero began to notices that fights where breaking out nowhere between tribes, with Zero thinking that someone is pulling strings, and revealing that the ones who are pulling the strings are the King of Death tribe who are causing the tribal wars, and forcing many captured infected to join them or be killed. Zero then explain that the King of Death tribe are the ones who took his mate, Mary Jane Watson, with captured uninfected survivors, and are holding her for ransom, causing Zero to make the deal with the Punisher. Zero tells the Punisher that if he rescues Mary Jan, then he and the Zero tribe will leave him and the uninfected survivors alone. This caused the Punisher to think about accepting the deal, only for the priest to convince to do it to help the uninfected. After this, the Punisher sets off to do what he is told and meets up with other members of Zero Tribe, which are Black Widow, Deadpool, and Scorpion, to the location where the King of Death Tribe keeps and kills the infected. However, they are ambushed by his minions, causing the deaths of both Scorpion and Black Widow.
