In Avengers: The Initiative #26 (Sep. 2009), many super-villains responded to Norman Osborn's takeover of the 50-States Initiative by signing up for the program. As the Hood explained to Taskmaster, "When word got out about the new Initiative, plenty of cons wanted a seat on the gravy train. It's a smorgasbord of loses." The Hood explained his plan to use this new Initiative recruits in a suicide mission to "soften up" the alien invaders who had taken over the "42" prison complex in the Negative Zone.
The faces of many of these new recruits can be seen on video monitors in panel 4 on page 18. The group can be seen more fully in panel 4 on page 19. Slaughter Boy can be seen in this group picture, identifiable by his long black hair worn in a massive ponytail. Slaughter Boy was also one of the people pictured on the video monitor.
Slaughter Boy was more clearly identifiable in the next issue, Avengers: The Initiative #27, in which he and the rest of the new "cannon fodder" version of the Shadow Initiative stormed the "42" prison complex in the Negative Zone.
