After several confrontations with the Protectorate and Defiant, the remaining members of the Nine, Jack Slash, Skinslip, Night Hag, Hookwolf and Bonesaw attacked Toybox, obtaining their technology. Now enclosed in their own dimension thanks to Dodge's pocket dimension technology, the Nine were safe from the manhunt.
Using Glace's technology, Jack Slash and Hookwolf placed themselves in stasis, along with ten clones each of the founding members of the Nine, excepting Gray Boy, and nine clones of almost all of the rest. Bonesaw used Blasto's tech and samples to create the clones, but was unable to retrieve a few of the member's DNA. Bonesaw decided to oversee the process, rather than freeze herself, using Cranial's memory altering tech to make sure each clone wasn't a simple blank slate. She spent the next two years simulating trigger events for each member, making sure they were as close as possible to the original in both personalities and quirks.
Two years later, Jack Slash, Hookwolf and the rest of the clones woke up, and, after a brief recovery phase, returned to Earth Bet.
