History

American Frontier

During the days of the American Frontier, many gunfighters traveled through the area.

Along the Mogollon Range, outlaw hero Kid Colt infiltrated the gang known as the Wild Bunch in order to shut them down[1]. A local prospector named Barney discovered an old Spanish exploration ship that was land locked in the middle of the desert. Barney was murdered by the Calico Kid who then went to locate the ship and the gold doubloons inside. They were pursued by Barney's friends Tex Morgan and Lobo, who killed Calico and his gang, and left the ship and its loot to be buried in a sandstorm[2]. In the town of Taos, the Two-Gun Kid prevented rancher and banker Whit Martel from murdering his rival, Esteban Terrero[3].


20th Century

In 1946, a gang of criminals discovered a tree that literally grew diamonds located in Stone Gulch on land owned by the government. They attempted to keep the knowledge of the tree a secret, however the Human Torch and Toro uncovered the tree and insured that the government claimed the tree[4]. In 1949, Sun Girl was invited to New Mexico where she was to be honored by the Hopi people. There she was kidnapped by the strange Cube Men and taken to the planet Autan on behalf of their master the so-called Brain Monster. Sun Girl eventually liberated herself and returned to Earth[5].

In 1954, the international criminal known as the Vulture built his original hideout in the deserts of New Mexico where he attempted to develop "super atomic bombs", until he was defeated by the Human Torch and Toro and his base destroyed in a nuclear explosion[6]. Later, government atomic bomb tests irradiated and mutated a dinosaur egg, unleashing a fully grown dinosaur that terrorized the western United States until it was stopped by the Torch and Toro[7]. In 1955, Secret Service Agent Rick Davis prevented Communist agents in the region from sabotaging early rocket tests[8].

Modern Age

When Hulk went on a rampage in New Mexico's Sector B, Rick Jones contacted the Avengers to stop him, but they failed to catch him, as he hid underwater for a long time, only to resurface in the Atlantic Ocean[9].

Earth-1610

SHIELD Aero-Space Development Station #9 is located in New Mexico. The Kree sabotaged a launch at this base which led to a major confrontation between agents of the Kree and Mahr-Vehl, the Fantastic Four, and most of the Ultimates. [10]

On Earth-1610, a disillusioned Captain America renounced his warrior mantle and lived in a remote area of New Mexico. [11] Later in an unrelated incident, Sue Storm and Thor discovered a Hydra Research Station near Bloomfield. With the help of Monica Chang and SHIELD the agents of Hydra were defeated and the base was dismantled. [12]
