In 2012, Ellis' administration was marked by Aldrich Killian's War, an incident that resulted in the impeachment of Ellis' running mate, Rodriguez, and a contributing factor in Ellis' failure to be reelected, along with the HYDRA Uprising within S.H.I.E.L.D.. The following year, Ellis would authorize the creation of the Advanced Threat Containment Unit, a government organization designed to suppress the Inhuman outbreak.

Aldrich Killian's War[edit | edit source]
In 2012, Aldrich Killian would conspire against Ellis, creating Aldrich Killian's War and staging a series of bombings caused by the failure of the Extremis program as terrorist attacks committed by the "Mandarin", a fictitious terrorist played by Trevor Slattery. In response to the bombings, Ellis would announce a rebrand of War Machine, giving the War Machine armor a red, white, and blue coat of paint and renaming War Machine to "Iron Patriot". Aldrich Killian's War would culminate in the kidnapping of Ellis and the Battle on the Norco. Ellis was saved by James Rhodes in the latter, returning him to Washington, D.C..
