That was pretty much it for the next three decades, until editor Mark Paniccia stumbled across the "What If?" and decided to ask writer Jeff Parker what he'd do with the idea in the mainstream MarvelUniverse. The result was a six-issue miniseries called ''Agents of Atlas'' (October, 2006 -March, 2007).

Again, that pretty much seemed to be it for the Agents, although they made a couple of other appearances elsewhere in the MarvelUniverse.

'''Note''': Atlas Comics was the name Marvel went by for most of the '50s. All of the characters in ''Agents of Atlas'' were created during the Atlas Comics period, before the ComicBook/FantasticFour ushered in the modern MarvelUniverse.

* CaptainErsatz: The Yellow Claw is an Ersatz for Fu Manchu -- who later ended up becoming part of the MarvelUniverse himself. One of the cases where the original and the Ersatz share the same fictive space. They also share a universe with Iron Man villain The Mandarin. Their similar claimed backgrounds are explained by "[[TruthInTelevision Genghis Khan has lots of descendants.]]"

Then in mid-2008 came the news that the Agents would be getting their own ongoing series, kicking off in February 2009. Cue much {{Squee}} from the Agents' fans -- and a certain amount of cynicism, noting [[ScrewedByTheNetwork what usually happens with new series]]. This fate was semi-averted: the series wrapped up with #11, had a two-issue crossover with the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, was installed in ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules'' as a backup, got relaunched, then [[http://www.comicsalliance.com/2010/07/13/jeff-parker-ken-hale-on-gorilla-man-the-end-of-agents-of-atlas/ got cancelled again]], with Parker calling quits at issue #5. There was also a three-issue miniseries for both Gorilla Man and the Uranian, and a one-shot for Namora.

* EvilCounterpart: Their Comicbook/DarkReign tie-in plays this up - Jimmy is a HeroWithBadPublicity that most think has done a FaceHeelTurn, and is using a formerly-evil organization to do good. Osborn is a VillainWithGoodPublicity that the public thinks has pulled a HeelFaceTurn but is really using the formerly-mostly-good organization SHIELD into the villainous HAMMER.
