In the time shortly after the 21st century an event in the nation of Sharzhad spawned a cataclysm. Most countries resorted to martial law to handle the chaos. Not nuclear, an alien form of energy transfer that irradiated the world. The mutation rate skyrocketed with many traits of existing mutants and paranormals being transferred and multiplied. In time only mutants could reproduce. Everyone else had to be cloned. Large metro areas were separated by a new force wall technology that could cover several states at once. This ultimately led to the Mondo cities, which connects areas from former Manhattan to Washington D.C. Captain America recruited as many super beings as he could to create an entire army of avengers. In time they passed on their technologies and donated genetic material so the Mondo cities could better arm their elite enforcement; this lead to the Boss System, where area enforcers have total Authority over criminal handling [Dark Avengers #179].

Cage 1-3 went and passed until his memories were uploaded into Cage-4 his latest cloned body. It was in this one that Luke Cage’s Thunderbolts arrived in this timeline and came in conflict with him [Dark Avengers #177].
