At some point the site was closed and new facility dubbed "Area 52" in Utah was created to contain "mysteries of America," including superhuman-related technology.[3]

Area 51 also known as Groom Lake, Nevada was also the site where the In-Betweener was held captive before being freed by Miss America on Barnell Bohusk's and Angel Salvadore's intel, and the two of them were targeted in the desert next by Braak'nhüd.[1]

The Dum-Dum Dugan Life-Model Decoy was stored at Area 51. Many years ago he successfully petitioned S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury to create a specialized unit dedicated to the use of paranormal personnel. Dubbed the Howling Commandos in homage to the famed World War II squad, the team set up shop at "Area 13" and began acquiring operatives whose strengths and powers were supernatural, paranormal or extra-terrestrial in nature.[6]Captured beings were given the option to either work as an operative with the Commandos, which came with certain "walking around" privileges, or to be kept in continuous isolated containment at Area 51.[7]

In Earth-11052, Nick Fury sent the X-Men to Nevada to rescue mutants whom were being held captive in Area 51. During the operation, Cyclops intentionally left Mystique behind,[8] but she later escaped.[9]
