Strikeforce: Motituri

This book is set in the 1950s. The idea is that the Kree and the Skrull and who-ever-else has heard rumors that the Space Stone (also known as the Tesseract) is on Earth and have sent small groups of their own to discover if that’s true.

S.H.I.E.L.D. realizes that they need heroes and they need them now. This program is launched.

The alien crews decide to give up and go away. Remember this isn’t an armada or anything. This is considered a backwater assignment.

Sovereign Seven

I think we should include the Sovereign Seven as part of Marvel canon. It was made by Chris Claremont, just as he left Marvel for DC. It’s something that he holds ownership of, so there hasn’t been much movement with the characters.

But, much like Jack Kirby’s New Gods, if things had played out different this could’ve been published by Marvel.
