During the Acts of Vengeance storyine where villains of all types tried to defeat heroes that they don't usually fight, the second Jester was contacted by a Doctor Doom robot to create a team to defeat the Avengers. Jester II contacted many second-tier criminals to form his "Assembly of Evil," including the heroes Cloak and Dagger, whose reputation as vigilantes has often left them be mistaken for criminals.
The Assembly confronted a small contingent of Avengers who were holding a press conference regarding the "Acts of Vengeance." The Avengers defeated the Assembly with the help of Cloak and Dagger, who had only agreed to join the villains so they could foil their plans. The Assembly was remanded to custody and the various members have never since banded together again.
These characters comprised the main membership of the Assembly of Evil:
- The second Jester (leader)
- Rock of the Hulkbusters
- Cloak and Dagger (subversive)
- Hulk Robot (a cosmically powered robot built by the Eternals)
