Origin

Shortly after the Kree-Skrull War, the leaders of the premiere superhuman teams were brought together by Iron Man to discuss knowledge that each had, which would have collectively prepared for and prevented Earth from being imperiled by the intergalactic battle. Iron Man proposes that they form a superhuman government, but the group's initial response is not enthusiastic, but they continue to meet and share information as the Illuminati.
