The Illuminati are a group that features in Marvel Comics.



Reconvening to deal with the Incursions in New Avengers v3 #6.

The Illuminati met at the Sanctum Sanctorum to discuss their absentee sixth member Tony Stark after he had dropped from the public eye when he became penniless as his company was taken over by Obadiah Stane. Some of the members debated helping Stark but Black Bolt and Namor stated it would be an insult to Tony’s pride if he was aided and that he needed to come out of his problems by himself. (Iron Man: Legacy v1 #6) Around this time, Stark attempted to rebuild and moved briefly to Los Angeles where his activities drew the attention of the secret criminal society known as the Pride. After learning of them and their Gibborim masters, Stark contacted Doctor Strange who understood the nature of the threat they faced and called a gathering of an Illuminati to deal with the danger. Together, they attacked the Pride and managed to defeat them. They were arrested but their connections allowed the entire incident being forgotten thus resulting in them being freed once again where they continued to plot in the shadows. (Iron Man: Legacy v1 #11)

It gathered to meet to discuss with Iron Man about his formation of the New Avengers with Tony stating that this team was needed to replace the disbanded Avengers. He also consulted them about the superhero known as the Sentry following the supervillain breakout at the Raft. (New Avengers v1 #7) They discussed the induction of the Sentry into the ranks of the New Avengers with them telling Stark to notify them if there was any danger from Reynolds. In addition, they had a brief discussion about strange operations being conducted by S.H.I.E.L.D. (New Avengers v1 #10)
