Mission 1Edit

Chapter StartEdit

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Boss? Something you ought to know.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Then you ought to be telling me.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We've been observing space-time disruptions all across the surface of the Earth. Not just the typical stuff you might see if a time traveler or interdimensional entity was appearing, but--


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Coulson, I've got the Hellfire Club, the Brotherhood, HYDRA, the Hand, and God only knows who else breathing down our necks. No time for leisurely nerd briefings.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Well, boss, we've got people coming out of these breaches.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
This is not my shocked face, Coulson.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
It might be when I tell you that... well, sir, some of the people we're seeing already exist here.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Skrulls?


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We don't think so. Other versions. Different versions. Alternates, duplicates, who knows. Other landscapes, too... We're calling these events Incursions.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
How the hell...?


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
That's what we're trying to find out, sir.


Mission StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
The Syndicate is toast, but our problems aren't all solved yet. HYDRA is rallying to the Red Skull again...


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
And after our run-in with the Hellfire Club, you better believe they'll be players from here on out.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Agent, we've been grappling with the aftereffects of the Pulse, and we're still not sure where it came from. But I'd like to introduce Agent Phil Coulson, who has been working that problem.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Working it very hard, boss. We're starting to see some results.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
There's a whole team dedicated to this? Nick, I thought we weren't keeping secrets from each other.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Don't mean to bruise your ego, Stark, but I'm trying to save the world here. Agent Coulson, give us the thumbnail on Incursions.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Incursions are disruptions in space-time. We've been seeing a lot of them. They come and go fast enough that we can't pin down a cause, but we're closing in on that.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Don't keep me in the dark on stuff like this, Nick. I'll develop trust issues. Space-time disruptions are a better use of my time than Test Subjects.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
You don't get to play in every sandbox at once, Stark. You'll get an Incursion briefing and we'll bring you in on what we've learned so far.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Of course I'll be looking forward to your insights, Mr. Stark. But we're all multitasking, and there are Test Subjects causing problems right now.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Agent, you heard the new star agent. Go get the Test Subjects.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Also, Colossus is here. He's been helping to smooth over lingering tensions from the Phoenix Force, um...


Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
Debacle is the word you are looking for.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Let's hit the ground running, Agent. Roll these guys up before the big bads can use the distraction to spring something nasty.


Heroic BattleEdit

Screen TextEdit

Rogue and Gambit thought they were out for a quiet date. Dinner, a movie, that kind of thing. But S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to have to cut their dessert short, because there are Sentinels on the move.

StartEdit

Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
I never did like Sentinels. What kind are these again?


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
Prime, cher. But not so prime as you.


Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
You stop runnin' your mouth long enough for us to do this job, now. Hear me? There's MGH serum to recover before these Sentinels hand it off to their masters.


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
As you wish, my darlin'.


LoseEdit

Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
Running from Sentinels? Shame on us. We won't be able to show our faces around the Helicarrier.


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
We off Xavier's Christmas card list, you think?


Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
We will be if we don't turn ourselves right around and get those Sentinels where they belong, by which I mean the scrap heap.


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
We gonna get 'em right where they need to go, don't you worry 'bout that. Allons!


RepeatEdit

Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
We gonna give these Sentinels another go?


Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
You game?


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
I'm all game, cher. You talking to the original mutant player.


CompleteEdit

Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
Not too much for conversation, these Sentinels.


Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
You make up for it, sugar. You know you do.


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
Now I got this whole stash of serum. Tempted to pour it down the nearest sewer grate.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
God, no. Don't do that. What would it do to the rats?


Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
Or the alligators?


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Just get it back to the Helicarrier, Gambit.


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
If you insist, cher. Mutant cocodrie, now that's something...


Deploy 1Edit

Screen TextEdit

Sentinels are coming up from the subway tunnels in this area. We need a mutant to respond because TV cameras are already there. Time to start smoothing over the Phoenix event. Cyclops is a good choice.

StartEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Sentinels are staking out a perimeter around this area. We're not sure yet if they're defending it or preparing to attack.

This is probably meant as a distraction while the Test Subjects do whatever they're supposed to do. We need to take care of it now.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
TV cameras are on the scene already. Scott, how about you head over there and drop a nice sound bite while you take care of the Sentinels?


Cyclops:
Cyclops Icon 1
Always happy to be a media pawn, Tony.


CompleteEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Your visor looks great on TV, Scott. I hardly recognized you.


Cyclops:
Cyclops Icon 1
Jealous, Tony?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Never. Just looking for an excuse to make a new suit. Now I've got one. The Mark Looks-Good-in-HD.


Deploy 2Edit

Screen TextEdit

Jericho Drumm has some news for Dr. Strange, but as is his practice, he will only deliver it in person. Send Strange to New Orleans via that astral plane to find out what it is.

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
The aether is humming with mystical communications.


Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
You mean to be sardonic, Stark, but you are accidentally truthful. I must meet Drumm and find out what he has to say.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We'll be looking forward to the details when you get back.


CompleteEdit

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
Jericho has heard some unsettling things from the spirits with whom he communes. An arcane plot of some sort is brewing in London...


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We'll worry about it later. Today we take care of Test Subjects.


Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
I will worry about it now, Stark. You would do well to multi-task in this instance.


Deploy 3Edit

Screen TextEdit

While we try to figure out how the Crimson Cowl and Sugar Man ended up working together, we also need to stay on top of the Circle of 8 question. There's a cultist being held in the Tombs. Pick him up and bring him to the Helicarrier.

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Turns out this Circle of 8 is some kind of apocalyptic cult. We'd suspected as much, but now NYPD has a cultist locked up in the Tombs.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
They want us to come and get him. We'll stash him in the Helicarrier and see what we can learn about the group.


CompleteEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Circle of 8 loony is safely aboard the Helicarrier awaiting interview. I can't wait for this. Nothing like doomsday crazies to brighten up your day.


MiniBoss - Crimson CowlEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Well, there's our local field boss cracking the whip over the Test Subjects: Crimson Cowl.

She could have an interest in the MGH/Iso-8 serum. She's already gone cybernetic; why not add some fresh mutations?



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
The Pulse has made people greedy to be something other than they were.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Could be. Or maybe they always wanted to, and now they can.


Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
Or she's just bad person, Tony. Don't make complicated.


StartEdit

Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
Mutation is not something to be experimented with, Cowl. Unless you wish to become like Test Subjects.


It's hardly the same thing. You are limited by your genome. I have no such problem. Crimson Cowl:
Crimson Cowl Icon


LoseEdit

You could use a little experimentation, Colossus. Crimson Cowl:
Crimson Cowl Icon


RepeatEdit

Wait'll you see the next batch of mutations we're cooking up. A brand new frontier... Crimson Cowl:
Crimson Cowl Icon


CompleteEdit

Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
This group of Test Subjects is pacified. So is the Crimson Cowl.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Moving right along to the next, then. Thank you, Colossus.


Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
Where have Iron Man and Fury and Hill gone?


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
They're in a meeting. Bureaucratic stuff. I'm on the comm for now.


Boss - Sugar ManEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Is that Sugar Man? I've only read about him in the dossiers from the Apocalypse timeline divergence.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
That's him. Apocalypse's favorite slavemaster. We'd hoped he was dead, but the way he can shrink himself, he's hard to keep track of.

If we're seeing him now, it won't be long before we see his mentor Mr. Sinister. Unless we're lucky and Sugar Man killed him.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
We have not experienced that particular stroke of fortune, Director Fury. I do not know where Sinister is, but I do know he is alive.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Agent, I'm sure you know Charles Xavier by reputation. He's decided to take a more active role consulting on S.H.I.E.L.D. operations and we're happy to have him.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
If we can bring Sugar Man in, he'll tell us what we want to know. He's quite loquacious.


Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
I will do this. It is my fault he is in our universe at all.


StartEdit

Piotr the Colossus, man of steel. Thanks again for the ride into this timeline. I'd have hated to miss out on Iso-8. Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon


Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
I have myself to blame. It is time I set that right.


Set it right? You can't set it right. There's no right, there's no wrong. There's power. I have it, and I want more. Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon


Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
No right or wrong? I know better than to take moral lessons from you.


Morals. Funny. We'll see how moral you are when you're all back in the camps. Sinister's ready to get experimenting again... Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon


LoseEdit

You have escaped only for the moment, Piotr. Soon I will have you as a plaything... Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon


RepeatEdit

Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
Sugar Man has not been deterred. This means I must be more persuasive.


CompleteEdit

Colossus:
Colossus Icon 1
Sugar Man shrank himself away. It would be useful to have a vacuum cleaner.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Too bad we didn't add those to our standard field gear. You're done there, Colossus.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
We'll pursue Sugar Man another day. I pity the poor souls he gets hold of before then.


Mission CompleteEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Damn, but it's hard to keep chasing these labs. All they need is a jar full of serum and they can make Test Subjects anywhere.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
If it was easy, anyone could do it. The impossible stuff they leave to S.H.I.E.L.D.

And speaking of anywhere...



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Our friends across the pond are asking for a little help. Seems that the Hellfire Club is on the move in London.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Hope your passport's in order, Agent. Here we go.


Mission 2Edit

Mission StartEdit

Back to top ↑

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Welcome to Merrie Olde England, Agent... where the Hellfire Club seems to be setting Test Subjects loose as a diversion while they chase arcane artifacts.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
This could mean that Sugar Man has wormed his way into the Club. Emma Frost is trying to find out, but something's blocking her telepathy in the local Hellfire HQ.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
That something is likely Sebastian Shaw. It is a powerful barrier. Even I am having trouble penetrating it.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
We're going to be working members of a new Excalibur team into our London operations.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Our British counterparts have suggested that they ought to be part of any work we do here. We agree, of course.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
So meet Psylocke. She's from London, and is also a member of the Hellfire Club, so she'll be a useful local guide.


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
Useful? Thank you, Tony. So nice to be patronized by an American. Agent Coulson, your courtesy is a welcome contrast.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
I'm sure you'll find that Mr. Stark has other qualities you'll come to appreciate, Ms. Braddock. They aren't always... immediately apparent.


Heroic BattleEdit

Screen TextEdit

Sabretooth is in London. He's probably on Brotherhood business, but he's moving independently of the main Brotherhood and Hellfire Club forces. We've got Logan tracking him down... there ought to be fireworks pretty soon.

StartEdit

Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1
Taking a stroll, by happenstance right around the corner from a Hellfire Club safe house?


You know me. All innocent. Sabretooth:
Sabretooth Icon


Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1
Not sure citizens of the Commonwealth get to travel without a passport anymore, Victor.


Not sure you're really worried about paperwork, Logan. Sabretooth:
Sabretooth Icon


Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1
There's one piece of paper I want to fill out: the incident report after I put you in a body bag.


LoseEdit

Like I said. I'm the picture of innocence. Strolling down a London street, enjoying this fine evening.

But you wanted to fight. So hey, I had to defend myself.

Now stay out of the Brotherhood's business.

Get that healing factor working, Logan. Then maybe we can tango again.

Sabretooth:
Sabretooth Icon


RepeatEdit

Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1
You're just lucky I didn't let Psylocke get after you.


Aww, does she still hold a grudge? Sabretooth:
Sabretooth Icon


Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1
Not like I do, bub.


CompleteEdit

Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1
New plan for your day. Doesn't include murder, but as a consolation prize I won't kill you.


You calling me a murderer? Pot, meet kettle. Sabretooth:
Sabretooth Icon


Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1
I'm a killer. You're a murderer. If you can't tell the difference, that's part of your problem.


Deploy 1Edit

Screen TextEdit

Since we're on another team's turf, we should do the courteous thing and say hello. Send Kitty Pryde over to MI-13's HQ. MI-13 has been a good partner for S.H.I.E.L.D.. Let's keep it that way.

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Kitty, you've worked with Excalibur before. Maybe you can swing over to MI-13 and convey our best.


Kitty Pryde:
Kitty Pryde Icon 1
Diplomacy? Little old me? Only if I get to fight when I come back.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
There's going to be plenty of fighting for everyone, never fear.


CompleteEdit

Kitty Pryde:
Kitty Pryde Icon 1
The faceless masters of British skullduggery say hello.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Excellent. Now you want to fight?


Kitty Pryde:
Kitty Pryde Icon 1
I already told you I do.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Then into the field with you! The Hellfire Club is up to no good.


Deploy 2Edit

Screen TextEdit

We're still not sure where the Brotherhood's big gun is. Now that Magneto's on our side, the big unknown is Sebastian Shaw. Maybe Phoenix can take a look around and see if she can sense him.

StartEdit

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Phoenix, we're trying to minimize the potential for the Hellfire Club to spring surprises. If Sebastian Shaw is here in London, we'd like to know.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
The Phoenix Force will help you sense his presence even if he's masking himself, won't it?


Phoenix:
Phoenix Icon 1
It might. Shaw is very good at disguising his psychic signature, but nobody can hide from me for long.


CompleteEdit

Phoenix:
Phoenix Icon 1
I haven't sensed him at all. But again, that might mean only that he's successfully disguising his presence.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Uncertainty. The great enemy of successful planning. Well, thank you, Phoenix. We'll figure something out.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Shaw won't be able to hold himself back forever. If nothing else, his ego will demand he get involved.


Deploy 3Edit

Screen TextEdit

We need to find every previously known member of the Hellfire Club pronto. It's time for everyone to take sides.

StartEdit

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Agent, we know a number of our allies maintain a relationship with the Hellfire Club. Now we are going to get them on record: with us or against us.

Whoever you send, make sure they know that if someone's waffling, we will assume that person is a hostile. That person needs to go to the Raft.



CompleteEdit

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
All right. So far no surprises. But we need to find some of our... how do I put this?

Our colleagues who sometimes lose their way. We'll keep looking. No surprises. That's one of the boss's mantras. You know that, right?



MiniBoss - ToadEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Test Subjects with Hellfire goons cracking the whip. Looks like the black pieces are holding the advantage.


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
Toad's creeping in and out the back door here.


Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1
I never knew anyone more easily led than Toad. Where the Hellfire Club goes, he goes.


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
Well, then, since we've put a bunch of them in the hospital, he ought to go there, too.


StartEdit

Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
Well, hullo, little Toad. Where are Mole and Rat?


I swear to God, if you make a joke about a wild ride I'm gonna poison a blind man.

Might just do it anyway. In fact, how do you know I haven't?

Toad:
Toad Icon


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
Mystique's leash is far too tight to let you roam so far. Plus you're forgetting I can read your mind.


LoseEdit

Can you hear what I'm thinking now? Hope so! Ha! Toad:
Toad Icon


RepeatEdit

Wait. Listen. What's that? Oh, yeah, me thinking I'm gonna watch you die! Toad:
Toad Icon


CompleteEdit

Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
He definitely had Mystique on his mind. But once he figured out I was hearing him, he was able to obscure the details.


Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1
Perhaps the Hellfire Club's black pieces are all doing that because of you and Emma... not to mention Charles.


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
They can try. It never works for long. A true telepath can listen through any conscious noise.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Nevertheless, Erik is correct. We must pursue investigative avenues other than the telepathic.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
That's, um... ongoing. Although I'm sure you knew that because I was going to say it.


Boss - MystiqueEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
Toad led us right to Mystique. There she is.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
That's always been a Hellfire safe house here. Wonder if Selene's hiding out in there too.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Psylocke, how about you drop in and see?


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
Already on my way.


Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1
Have care, Betsy. Mystique is not handling my decision well.


StartEdit

Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
I knew I'd find you here.


Another tired joke about telepathy. They don't sound any better in a British accent, you know.

And you know what else? I don't care if you know what I'm thinking. Go and tell that traitor Magneto that The Brotherhood will have its revenge for his betrayal.

Mystique:
Mystique Icon


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
Black Bishop? Is that as high as they've let you go? Poor Mystique. Sebastian Shaw doesn't trust you.


Oh, I just might die of shame now that you're reading my mind. How do you think Nick Fury feels about you, little girl? Forced on him like you were. Mystique:
Mystique Icon


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
I'm the last person you want to play mind games with. I always win.


LoseEdit

Always? Did you say always win? Mystique:
Mystique Icon


RepeatEdit

Don't think too much. It'll hurt less that way. Mystique:
Mystique Icon


CompleteEdit

Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1
She is consumed by hate. Unlike me. I am merely motivated by anger.


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
That's one Hellfire safe house made unsafe for the Club. Orders, Director Fury?


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Hear that, team? She finishes a mission, she asks for orders. I could get used to that.


Psylocke:
Psylocke Icon 1
I save my dissent for when it counts.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
This Excalibur liaison is going better than I could have hoped.

Get intel and forensics in there to see what we can learn from what they left behind.



CompleteEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
We've cleared the Hellfire Club safe house and intel is going through what we've recovered.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
You will be shocked, no doubt, to learn they're up to something nefarious.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
And that apparently Sugar Man isn't involved.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
The Hellfire Club is scouring the city for clues about the location of a particular magical object. We don't know yet which one.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Captain Britain and Union Jack are leading the investigation on the Excalibur side. They'll be sharing intel as it gets vetted.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Emma and I will also continue our efforts to circumvent Sebastian's defenses.


Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1
Not just you, Charles. Although it is typical for you to speak for all mutants.


Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1
Girls, you're both pretty.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Ah, I love good healthy bickering. Good to see you all working together.


Mission 3Edit

Mission StartEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Agent, we're integrating more British heroes into our efforts here. Meet Union Jack.


Union Jack:
Union Jack Icon 1
Call me Joey, mate.

I'll get right to it. The Hellfire Club's on a treasure hunt. You'll see some of the locations they're scouting on the map. We hit them first, we can cut them off and find out what they're after before they get it.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Short and to the point. There's your briefing, Agent. Now let's go.


Heroic BattleEdit

Screen TextEdit

Mystique has cut off her very own son, Nightcrawler, on a patrol while he was tracking Brotherhood activity. He could bamf his way out, but there comes a time in a man's life when he's got to face his demons. Even if one of them is his mother.

StartEdit

Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1
Mother.


Son. You can still join your own people. Mystique:
Mystique Icon


Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1
I am with my own people, Mother. Komm mit... there is no need for us to fight.


You don't understand, Kurt. Right now you're a useful idiot for S.H.I.E.L.D., but when they have destroyed the Brotherhood? What will they do to you then? Mystique:
Mystique Icon


Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1
I have seen enough hate, Mother. I will not become hate. Müssen wir immer gegeneinander streiten?[1]


Ja, mein Sohn. Wir müssen.[2] Mystique:

Come back, my son. Come back. We don't have to fight any more. Mystique:
Mystique Icon


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Where is he?


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
He's teleporting around faster than you can track him.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Slow him down, Professor. This is his fight in the end, and we have to make sure we help him win it.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
Kurt. You cannot run. We need you to stand and fight.


RepeatEdit

Have you made a decision? Mystique:
Mystique Icon


Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1
I have told you before: Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders.[3]


Then we are as before. Family disputes are the most bitter, are they not? Mystique:
Mystique Icon


CompleteEdit

Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1
Each time I confront my mother, I emerge... ein bisschen müde.[4]


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
You are forced into a realization, Kurt. It is always better to fight the difficult battle and suffer its aftermath once.

The alternative, of course, is to surrender and live with that surrender every day of one's life. That is precisely what your mother has done.



Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1
Ja, aber... diese Kämpfe, die sind schwer.[5] She points down a path I will not follow.


Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1
This should have been my battle to fight, perhaps. The Brotherhood is my creation. I am responsible to keep it in check for now.

Black Widow is required on a joint S.H.I.E.L.D./MI-13 reconnaissance of known Hellfire Club safe houses in this area.

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Widow, interagency cooperation is all the rage. MI-13 is doing a combat recon of known Hellfire Club locations near here. You're our contribution.


Black Widow:
Black Widow Icon 1
If things get hot, are we fighting or do we keep moving?


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Use your judgment. Your MI-13 counterpart will be Faiza Hussain. Both of you will be out of contact for the duration of this deployment.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
You have the rendezvous information now. Better get going.


CompleteEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Did you find all the bad guys?


Black Widow:
Black Widow Icon 1
We found some of them, that's for sure. Hard to know when you've found them all. More seem to keep popping up.


Deploy 2Edit

Screen TextEdit

T'Challa has discovered something about Incursions. He'll tell us, but only in person. Send Storm to Wakanda so she can brief Coulson.

StartEdit

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Black Panther's researchers in Wakanda have new information about the nature of Incursions. He won't have it transmitted. Transport by hand only. Storm, you're the logical choice.


Storm:
Storm Icon 1
I'm sure you think so. Do not complain about the weather while I'm gone.


CompleteEdit

Storm:
Storm Icon 1
I have brought the information to the Baxter Building.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Reed will be very happy to get a look at it. So will I. If you'll excuse me...


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Very quick trip, Agent Coulson. You're needed here as well.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Understood, Boss. I'll be back before you know it.


MiniBoss - Jack O'LanternEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Jack O'Lantern?


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We've been observing links between the Maggia and other enemy groups. Jack O'Lantern is probably some kind of emissary to the Brotherhood.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
He's not a mutant. Maybe your Scoutmaster forgot to tell you that.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
No, he's not. Perceptive of you to catch that right away, Mr. Stark. But he is a useful lower-level asset if the Maggia wants to build bridges with the Brotherhood.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
For what?


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Well, that's what we're going to have to find out.


StartEdit

I'm going to apply for British citizenship. One of my grandparents was Irish. That's good enough, right? Jack O'Lantern:
Jack O'Lantern Icon


Union Jack:
Union Jack Icon 1
Do I look like a bloody passport clerk?


You represent the crown, right? Flag on your outfit and all? Anyway, the reason I bring it up is that if I was British I'd call myself Union Jack O'Lantern. Jack O'Lantern:
Jack O'Lantern Icon


Union Jack:
Union Jack Icon 1
Would you now.

The Hellfire Club is after the Philosopher's Stone.

They think it does. If they're right, we need to keep it off the board. No rest for the weary, Agent.

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Maybe nothing, Mr. Stark. I'm sure you're right.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
We're getting reports of Test Subjects in and around the Hellfire Club HQ here in London. Hellfire guards are keeping them on a leash... mostly.


Nick Fury:

That might mean Sugar Man has sweet-talked his way into the Club after all.

Screen TextEdit

Spider-Woman was keeping an eye on some of the Hellfire Club locations we've already pacified. Who did she run across rebuilding one of them into an A.I.M. lab? Why, M.O.D.O.K.. Jessica's never liked A.I.M.. She likes M.O.D.O.K. even less.

StartEdit

Spider-Woman:
Spider-Woman Icon 1
Enjoying a tour, M.O.D.O.K.? This is a S.H.I.E.L.D. special. It's called Former Hellfire Club Safe Houses, Now in Ruins. You like it?

I don't know. He keeps yammering about some cosmic threat, but it's mostly numbers and formulas.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
He's talking about Incursions.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
He's M.O.D.O.K., smartypants. He could be talking about anything. The only thing he's ever really talking about is himself.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
You are perfectly suited to recognize that, Mr. Stark.

There is a limit to the patience of M.O.D.O.K.. Do you not understand that only A.I.M. can decode this cosmic peril!? M.O.D.O.K.:

Tech, right? We knew that.


Spider-Woman:
Spider-Woman Icon 1
No, Tony, not tech. Shut up and listen once in a while. They were looking for old books in a climate-controlled safe.

And they got them before I could clear him out.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Old books? What does a technophilic loony like M.O.D.O.K. want with old books?


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Won't be long before we see him again. We'll have to ask him then.

I want to be a Captain. Make me one and I might not feed you to the Test Subjects.

Tony Stark Dialogue
More likely he's trying to steal whatever new gizmos the Hellfire Club put together to control the Test Subjects.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We tracked him here from New York, but we weren't sure what he was doing. It certainly seemed far-fetched that he would be working with the Brotherhood or the Hellfire Club.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
I don't think he is. Like I said, he's here to scoop up whatever tech he can and run back to his hideaway.


Agent Coulson:

We'll find out if we go after him.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Agent, Captain Britain, you are cleared to initiate capture.

Decent of you to let me know. But everyone is against me, and I go where I please! Dr. Octopus:
Doctor Octopus Icon


Captain Britain:
Captain Britain Icon 1
That's what I expected. Still, one goes through the motions. You get out of my country either now or in the Helicarrier brig.


Space-time is rupturing around us and you're worried about me being a criminal? Fool! I am unlocking the secrets of the universe! I care nothing for your laws! Dr. Octopus:

That's it, Director Fury. If there are any more Brotherhood personnel working with the Hellfire Club in London, we don't know about them.


Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue
I believe he is correct. The Hellfire Club is still a threat, but Magneto's defection has lessened the Brotherhood's commitment to them.


Magneto:

Okay. I stand corrected.

When she shows herself, I will be ready. The Philosopher's Stone must not fall to Hellfire.

Heroic BattleEdit

Hercules is a man--well, demigod--of simple tastes. He likes to eat, he likes to drink, he likes to test his strength. That means every so often, he starts looking for a fight. When he's feeling fighty and Thor is around, you get a truly epic struggle between demigod and Thunder God.

Eliminating the invaders was a matter of little exertion. More ominous is M.O.D.O.K.'s interest in occult wisdom. He sent his ill-fated invaders to recover specific ancient manuscripts referring to cuneiform tablets I do not possess.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
A.I.M. forces are also massing around the Museum of Natural History, which does possess those tablets. M.O.D.O.K. must have been researching in London.


Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1
I must repair the damage done to the Sanctum Sanctorum, and seal the breach M.O.D.O.K. found in its defenses.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
While he's doing that, we're going to guard the museum and analyze the tablets to find out what A.I.M. is after.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
There's something off-kilter about A.I.M. mustering up this kind of magical muscle. Technocrats shouldn't embrace the occult.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
This offends you?


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
I'm a traditionalist in some ways. A.I.M.'s overstepped its bounds here. They need to know that.


Heroic BattleEdit

Screen TextEdit

The U-Foes are protecting a base built into this location underneath Central Park. Cable and Deadpool were arguing about the best caliber of ammunition for a weapon that hasn't been invented yet, and happened to run across them. Dear Reader, guess what happened next?

StartEdit

Cable:
Cable Icon 1
Too much A.I.M. activity around here. Seems like we ought to keep A.I.M. out of the park. Know what I mean?


Deadpool:
Deadpool Icon 1
I think your problem is this is all like work to you. Lighten up. We get to kill people, zillions and zillions of people, utterly without consequence because we're make-believe? HOW FREAKING AWESOME IS THAT?


The cyborg and the nut who thinks he's in a comic book. S.H.I.E.L.D. is scraping the bottom of the barrel now. X-Ray:
X-Ray Icon


Tell me about it. Okay, cyborg and crazy man. You think you had problems with A.I.M. before? They're about to get worse. Vapor:

Deadpool:
Deadpool Icon 1
She threatened me. She called me crazy. <sigh> I think I'm in love.


LoseEdit

Cable:
Cable Icon 1
You're still on fire, we're both more radioactive than a Chernobyl daisy, and I've got pieces of you stuck in me from that last explosion.


Deadpool:
Deadpool Icon 1
Yep-per. I think that went well.


Cable:
Cable Icon 1
It went well. All right. Why?


Deadpool:
Deadpool Icon 1
Because it means we get to kill them again! Don't you understand anything? What the hell will we do when all the fights are over? Who's going to read about us then?

God, Cable. You're so dumb sometimes. Hey. You with the mouse. Isn't he dumb sometimes?



CompleteEdit

Deadpool:
Deadpool Icon 1
I was wrong. That wasn't love. Just a passing infatuation. True love only happens in fairy tales, and this is a comic book, not a fairy tale.


Cable:
Cable Icon 1
Thought you said it was a video game.


Deadpool:
Deadpool Icon 1
Whatever. What's the difference? I also said you should lighten up, but there you are, still all serious and gravely responsible. Man, I get sick of that.

Can't anybody have any fun around here?



Cable:
Cable Icon 1
Fury, there are a number of items your research teams might find interesting here. Coulson in particular.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Roger that, Cable. Thanks for the heads-up.


Deadpool:
Deadpool Icon 1
Coulson! You're alive! Don't you want revenge on Loki? I sure would.

Screen TextEdit

A private investigator here has been looking a little too closely at the Circle of 8. Send Rogue to liberate his records.

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
O favorite Southern belle, we here at S.H.I.E.L.D. command were wondering if you might do us a favor.


Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
Name it, sugar. Of course I will.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We need someone to recover, if you will, the records of a certain private investigator who's been snooping around the Circle of 8.

No rough stuff. Just in and out.



CompleteEdit

Rogue:
Rogue Icon 1
I present to you the records of a private investigator, as requested. Mr. Stark. Sir.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Boy, they weren't kidding when they talked about Southern charm and courtesy. Even when I know you're joking, it sounds great.


Deploy 2Edit

Screen TextEdit

These occult-technology alliances never end well. Often Dr. Doom is behind them. Spider-Woman can take a look around the Latverian Embassy and see if that's the case here.

StartEdit

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
I hate when people get their magic and tech mixed up. Whenever it happens, I want to blame Doom.

Spider-Woman, how about you take a look around the Latverian Embassy and see if we can link Doom to any of this?



Spider-Woman:
Spider-Woman Icon 1
I'll take a look.


CompleteEdit

Spider-Woman:
Spider-Woman Icon 1
I took the whole tour. If Doom is up to something, he's keeping a lid on it.

Could be he's not anxious to jump back into the public eye so soon after the Syndicate fell apart.



Deploy 3Edit

Screen TextEdit

The Scarlet Witch is our best asset when it comes to understanding the workings of chaos. Where magic and science meet. Team Excalibur is suggesting there's something she should see in London.

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Wanda, we'd like you to head to London, just real quick. Excalibur has found some stuff in one of the Hellfire Club hideouts they think you should see.


Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1
Why me?


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
It's apparently something to do with chaos. That's all they said. And that you were the best person to understand it.


CompleteEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
So what was it?


Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1
They found some interesting material. As if a very powerful magician had been trying to create something like Iso-8, but not cosmic in origin.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Do you have it with you? Should we be concerned?


Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1
No. It had all evaporated before I got there. But there are occult lines of research happening that should concern us.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Believe me, they do.


Deploy 4Edit

Screen TextEdit

Strange is just about done repairing the damage to the Sanctum Sanctorum. He needs someone to test the repairs. Send a hero to help him out.

Deploy 5Edit

Screen TextEdit

Gambit's potential-energy powers have triggered some strange readings in instruments aboard the Helicarrier. Could have something to do with Iso-8, but we won't know until someone gets the results to Beast.

MiniBoss - NitroEdit

Nitro. So this whole operation has a self-destruct button.


Gambit:

Let's get him deactivated before he can set it off. Allons!

I'm here to defuse the situation.


Fat chance, Redeye. Things are about to blow. A.I.M. gets what A.I.M. wants, sooner or later. Nitro:

What'd you call me? Redeye? I look like a coffee drink to you? I think you mighta made me mad, mon ami.

We can certainly hope so. Thank you, Gambit. We'll take it from here.


MiniBoss - Grey GargoyleEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Gambit has been tracking the A.I.M. forces' patterns and they center here. Guess who else we found?

The Grey Gargoyle. We've overheard him talking about Clan Akkaba.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We had him penciled in as one of A.I.M.'s stooges. Looks like we were right. But Clan Akkaba? Red herring.

If A.I.M. thinks Clan Akkaba had anything to do with the Incursions, or the Circle of 8, they're wrong. Boss, maybe we should let them go down this rabbit hole.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Maybe so. But we're going to control how we do it, and we're not going to let them wreck the museum. Gambit. Get him talking.


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
D'ac, mon chef.


StartEdit

Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
So I tell you what, Gargouille, I take you in, you give up the Iso-8 and tell us all about what ancient manuscripts you're looking for.

Then I don't have to bust your mouth too bad. Ça marche?



Don't you toxify French, barbare! Grey Gargoyle:

Bring him in, Gambit. Let's see if he stays cooperative long enough to tell us about Clan Akkaba.


Gambit:

Oh, he will, least as long as I threaten to ask 'im in French.


Boss - FixerEdit

RevealEdit

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Fixer is going to the museum. Almost as weird as it would be to see him in a library.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Whatever this mystical secret is, A.I.M. wants it bad.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
They do indeed, Mr. Stark. I suspect we should want it just as badly, for intelligence purposes if nothing else.


StartEdit

Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
Did I just overhear you saying you're trying to save the world? You know what those words mean, bubba?


Technology is the only thing that will save this world... and information. We will find out what this Circle of 8 is doing, and we will stop it. They are like children with matches. Fixer:
Fixer Icon


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
We gonna survive just fine as long as you stay out of the way. Help from you, we don't need.


You're going to get it whether you like it or not. A.I.M. is not asking. A.I.M. is telling. Fixer:

No S.H.I.E.L.D. can protect you from what is coming. Fixer:

RevealEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Well, well, well. It wasn't just stray A.I.M. bucketheads in the cafeteria. M.O.D.O.K. was down there, too.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
And now he's blasting his way through to one of the off-site holdings areas.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
You have proved yourself capable of looking at the same monitor I'm looking at, Agent Coulson. There's a commendation in that for you.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Proud to serve my country, Mr. Stark. Boss, M.O.D.O.K. has bypassed security systems and is inside a special manuscript archive.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Gambit, are you still in this game?


Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
Oui, mon chef. Where to now?


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
It's M.O.D.O.K. time. But take it easy on all the old scrolls and triptychs and whatnot.


StartEdit

Gambit:
Gambit Icon 1
Wasn't you just stirring up trouble in London? How'd you get back here? That head of yours, it don't fit in any plane seat I ever seen.

Okay, Fury, he's down, but I don't know how you gonna get him out of there.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Our problem, Gambit. You take a break back at the Helicarrier and get debriefed.

Agent, you too. We need to get a sense of what A.I.M. was after. It wasn't Clan Akkaba, we know that much.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
But it was something ancient and sorcerous, which together with the Incursions suggests that we're only seeing the tip of a very large iceberg.


Mission CompleteEdit

Agent Coulson:

A.I.M.'s out of the way, for the most part. Still some strays running around in the cafeteria.

Grey Gargoyle clammed up the minute we got him to the Raft.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Hell with him, then. Let him sit there.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
It doesn't matter. The longer A.I.M. chases its own tail, the more time we have to figure out Incursions and the Circle of 8.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
You saying the Incursions are related to the Circle of 8?


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
We're still investigating, boss. It's too early to say for certain, but the Circle of 8 might have something to do with whatever's behind the Incursions.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Time to synthesize some knowledge. Is the Circle of 8 just a new Syndicate, some kind of villain board of directors? Reed and the two Hanks are looking at Incursions, too.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Maybe it's time to bring in some actual Circle of 8 cultists and see if we can filter some real information out of their ravings.
