Hank Pym created Salvation 1 after his court martial with the Avengers
when he was accused of endangering his fellow teammates after he created Ultron
. Pym's plan was to save his career by having Salvation 1 attack him and the Avengers where he would take down his own creation because he knew its secret weak spot. The Wasp
discovered her husband's project with Salvation 1 and he had her test her powers against his robot. The Wasp learned the weak spot during the fight when Pym shut down his robot with one precise shot. Pym told Janet to keep her mouth shut because this was only chance of redemption in the eyes of his teammates and she reluctantly agreed. All the Avengers met inside the mansion when Salvation 1 broke through a wall and attacked the heroes which included Tigra
, Captain America
, Iron Man
, Wasp and Yellowjacket
. Pym's plan backfired when the robot turned on him and clutched its creator with his metal claws. Janet saved her husband when she shot Salvation 1's weak spot. The Avengers realized that Salvation 1's attack was an apparent ruse so Pym walked away from his teammates and left the mansion.
Salvation 1 was created by Jim Shooter
and Bob Hall
in 1981 and first appeared in The Avengers
