|Maria Hill:||The Maggia is on the streets looking for Iso-8. Hammerhead’s in charge.|
|Tony Stark:||Our guess is he’s looking to grab up as much as he can find and sell it.
Tech innovation’s not their style. Last thing we need is a market for this stuff.
|Maria Hill:||Hammerhead will sell to anyone: Roxxon, Brand, Latveria...|
|Nick Fury:||The short version: if there's going to be an Iso-8 market, S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to corner it.|
|Maria Hill:||Hit the Maggia wherever you find them. And keep an eye out for Hammerhead.|
Agent, a representative from every New York crime family are meeting at this location a few blocks from Yancy Street. The Thing knows this area like the back of his hand. Send him in to crash their party.
A Maggia informant has been compromised. We need a hero to extract her before Maggia enforcers can get to her.
A group of children have been taken hostage by a panicked Maggia thug. Send a hero before this situation turns tragic.
MiniBoss - SandmanEdit
|Nick Fury:||You got something for us, She-Hulk?|
|She-Hulk:||I got Sandman. Looks like he's running Hammerhead's street operation.|
|Nick Fury:||Pick your team, Agent. Time to go pound sand.|
|S.H.I.E.L.D. Intel:||This is an Optional Team-Up. You can either use the hero provided, or bring in one of your own.
Mini-Boss battles feature Optional Team-Ups and Boss battles feature Mandatory Team-Ups. Have fun and try out your own strategies!
|She-Hulk:||Sandman. The Maggia's favorite dumb muscle.|
|Not after this gig. Iso-8's big-time. I'm gonna get what's coming to me.||Sandman:|
|She-Hulk:||You don't know how right you are.|
Boss - HammerheadEdit
|The mighty Avengers sent their lady bruiser, huh? I should be offended.||Hammerhead:|
|She-Hulk:||Hard head and thin skin. Plus a big mouth. Sounds like a recipe for a beatdown.|
|Here to dance again, sweetheart?||Hammerhead:|
|She-Hulk:||Different tune this time, Hammerhead. You're not going to like it.|
|Maria Hill:||Ease up, She-Hulk. He's down.|
|Nick Fury:||Tony. With the Vault offline, do we have any place to put him?|
|Tony Stark:||We can use the Raft for now. It's up and running.
Poor old Hammerhead. She might just have beat him part way into the 21st century.
|Maria Hill:||The Maggia’s on the run for now.
But Sandman showed up near Bellevue Hospital and handed something off to the Vulture.
|Nick Fury:||They’re old cronies. I don’t like it that they’re working together now.|
|Tony Stark:||Hammerhead's just a goon, but the Vulture might actually do something dangerous with Iso-8.|
|Nick Fury:||Forget about the Maggia for now. Vulture is the new priority number 1.|
|Maria Hill:||The Vulture is Hammerhead’s go-to mad scientist. He’s running some kind of lab in an abandoned wing of Bellevue Hospital.
We've detected Iso-8 signatures there, and we know RAID is involved.
|Nick Fury:||You know about RAID? They're a splinter group that was too violent and radical for AIM.|
|Tony Stark:||They belong in Bellevue, no question about that.|
|Nick Fury:||Just like Hammerhead, Vulture's working for someone else. Once you bust up the lab, maybe we'll know who.|
This underground power station has been rigged to overload. If it blows, it's going to take most of the neighborhood with it. Ms. Marvel can absorb any excess energy and thump any R.A.I.D. goons she encounters along the way.
Agent, we're tied up on the street level here and we need some high-level information about RAID activity. Get a tactician into the field to do some bird's-eye recon.
R.A.I.D. has hijacked a supply truck carrying critical intensive-care supplies to the hospital. Dispatch a hero to capture the truck before any more innocents suffer.
MiniBoss - Crimson DynamoEdit
|I don't want you, freak. Bring me Tony Stark!||Crimson Dynamo:|
|Spider-Man:||Well, do svedanya to you too, Dynamo. I'll send Tony your best.|
|I send you to him in pieces! Iso-8 makes the Jet Paralyzer stronger yet!||Crimson Dynamo:|
|Spider-Man:||Give a guy a powered suit, he gets delusions of grandeur.|
|Iron Man:||Says the guy who got bitten by a spider.|
|Nick Fury:||Professionalism, people. Agent, get that suit back to the Helicarrier so Tony can take it apart.|
Boss - VultureEdit
|Maria Hill:||The Vulture's still in Bellevue. Spider-Man, you have a visual.|
|Spider-Man:||10-4 and affirmative, Chief.|
|Spider-Man:||Looks like Romper Room in here. You call this science?|
|It's the grandest of grand experiments, young man. Care to take part?||Vulture:|
|Spider-Man:||Sorry, I'm on a diet. Space rocks strictly prohibited.|
|Delightful jocularity. But this occasion is deadly serious... for you.||Vulture:|
|Spider-Man:||Vulture cleared out before I could wrap him up, Nick. But there's lots here for the lab geeks to see.|
|Nick Fury:||Get everything back to the Helicarrier so they can see it, then.|
|Tony Stark:||RAID is cleared from this area. And what do you know, we found a workshop full of little bombs shaped like jack-o'-lanterns.|
|Maria Hill:||Vulture's working for the Green Goblin.|
|Spider-Man:||It's Maggia Mad Scientist Week.|
|Maria Hill:||Report to the Helicarrier. We've got another disturbance.
This one's in Hell's Kitchen.
|Maria Hill:||Some brief background: the Hand is an order of mystical ninjas.|
|Nick Fury:||Not the kind of group that would ordinarily be interested in Iso-8.|
|Tony Stark:||Either they're turning over a new technological leaf, or the Pulse has got them on the trail of something other than Iso-8.|
|Nick Fury:||Your mission is to find out which.|
|S.H.I.E.L.D. Intel:||Some missions have secret Epic Bosses only revealed when you clear every battle and deploy. See if you can find them!|
A secret Hand training dojo has been located in this area. Send in a scrapper to clean house.
We've uncovered traces of an underworld shipment that's being sent via a Hand courier. Send Black Cat to intercept and retrieve the package.
A Tenth Avenue fortuneteller says she's had a vision about SHIELD and something called the Circle of Eight. Times like these, we need to take the weird stuff seriously. Let's humor her by taking a report.
|Tony Stark:||I had my fortune told a couple of times. Never anything close to the truth.|
|Nick Fury:||We'll find out. She's pretty insistent, and... don't tell anyone this... S.H.I.E.L.D. has used her before.|
|Tony Stark:||Then we better send someone to get her.|
|Maria Hill:||The fortuneteller safe aboard the Helicarrier. Now we can debrief her.|
|Tony Stark:||What's this Circle of 8? Circle of 8, Iso-8... related?|
|Maria Hill:||Maybe she'll tell us.|
High Threat Fight - Mindless OnesEdit
|Maria Hill:||Director Fury, we're detecting... wait... that can't be right.|
|Nick Fury:||What can't be right?|
|Dr. Strange:||Mindless Ones.|
|Nick Fury:||Dr. Strange? How did you get... never mind.|
|Dr. Strange:||This disturbance was strong enough to break me out of meditation in the Sanctum Sanctorum.|
|Nick Fury:||Is this related to Iso-8?|
|Dr. Strange:||Possibly. The only thing we know for certain is that there are more than cosmic forces at play here, Director Fury.|
|Nick Fury:||Why are there Mindless Ones in Hell's Kitchen, Strange?|
|Tony Stark:||Well, it is Hell's Kitchen.|
|Dr. Strange:||I am not certain. However, the presence of Mindless Ones means Dormammu must have a hand in this.|
|Nick Fury:||Understood. Agent, you're about to have your first encounter with extra-dimensional bad guys. S.H.I.E.L.D.'s beat ranges wide.|
|Nick Fury:||That's it for the Mindless Ones.|
|Dr. Strange:||Far from it, Director Fury. I am quite certain we'll be seeing them again.|
MiniBoss - Hand NinjaEdit
|Maria Hill:||These are an elite corps even by Hand standards. They'll be guarding something important.|
|Nick Fury:||This is Daredevil's neighborhood. He's going in with you.|
Boss - BullseyeEdit
|Maria Hill:||Agent, we've got a positive ID on the leader of this Hand group. It's Bullseye.|
|The blind guy is here? I love killing the blind guy!||Bullseye:|
|Daredevil:||The blind guy notes that he is still alive.|
|Well, let's do something about that!||Bullseye:|
|Maria Hill:||The Hand's going all in on this one.|
|Nick Fury:||At least Bullseye's in custody. One less crazy assassin to deal with.|
Epic Boss - ElektraEdit
|Maria Hill:||Elektra is rallying the remnants of the Hand over on the docks.|
|Nick Fury:||I do not understand the criminal mind. She's working with Bullseye? Didn't he kill her once?|
|Tony Stark:||What's a little thing like that between psychotic villains?|
|Nick Fury:||If we can nail Elektra, she might tell us what the Hand is after. Hit her.|
|It's a new world after the Pulse.||Elektra:|
|Daredevil:||And you're still on the wrong side.|
|The white knight. Just like old times.||Elektra:|
|Daredevil:||I had her and she got away, Nick. This one's on me.|
|Nick Fury:||It doesn't matter. We've got more pressing obligations.
S.H.I.E.L.D. is out of the ninja-chasing business.
|Maria Hill:||We'll track her and the Hand, but until we learn what they're after, we're going to stay focused on Iso-8.|
|Tony Stark:||I always feel better when ninjas are off the streets.|
|Nick Fury:||Don't we all. But while we're chasing ninjas, Iso-8 signatures are disappearing all over town.|
|Tony Stark:||All over the world.|
|Nick Fury:||This is an arms race we cannot lose, Agent.|
|Maria Hill:||Since you're close to the Hudson anyway, head to Pier 94 next. Iron Fist is calling for backup.|
|Nick Fury:||Agent, meet Daniel Rand, better known as Iron Fist. Danny, what have you got?|
|Iron Fist:||Someone's organizing the local criminal element. They're tracking and hitting energy signatures before I can get there.
Jack O'Lantern is in charge of some of them, but he's taking orders from someone else.
|Nick Fury:||Then let's find out who.|
With all the troubles on the streets a riot has broken out at this location. Send in Luke Cage to restore order.
These goons are bringing heavier weapons into a staging area on the waterfront. Get someone over there who knows the value of a direct approach.
NYPD is getting jittery. They want to send riot squads into our operational zone. Get someone over to One Police Plaza to talk them out of it before more bystanders get hurt.
MiniBoss - Jack O'LanternEdit
|Iron Fist:||What's in this for you, Jack? The demon in your soul doesn't want Iso-8.|
|Iso-8 isn't just about science, Danny boy.
There are other worlds... and other worlds. Know what I mean? The Hood does.
|Iron Fist:||What was that about other worlds? Did he mean what I think he meant?|
|Tony Stark:||First the Hand, now the Hood. Things are getting mystical.
I hate it when things get mystical.
|Nick Fury:||We'll find out from the Hood. But I don't think we're going to like the answer.|
Boss - The HoodEdit
|Danny Rand, seeker of mystery.||The Hood:|
|Iron Fist:||The mystery here is what you want with ore from space.|
|It's much more than that. Iso-8 can do things you and S.H.I.E.L.D. cannot even begin to imagine.
Step a little closer and I'll show you what I mean.
|Maria Hill:||Where did he go?|
|Iron Fist:||As soon as we had the upper hand he opened some kind of portal and vanished.|
|Nick Fury:||Dammit. Well, at least we've got Jack O'Lantern. Crack that pumpkin and make him lead us to the Hood.|
|Maria Hill:||All right, we've got the area locked down and recovery teams are picking up the remaining Iso-8. Good work.
With the Hand and the Hood both involved, we need to start investigating supernatural uses for Iso-8.
|Tony Stark:||Not my department.|
|Maria Hill:||It doesn't have to be. We'll turn this one over to Strange and Jericho.|
|Nick Fury:||Agent, you're done here. Report to the Helicarrier for debrief.|
|Nick Fury:||We've got an emerging situation in Yorkville.|
|Maria Hill:||Someone has been using Iso-8 to create mutants from human test subjects.|
|Tony Stark:||It's brilliant and completely amoral.
Put that together with mutants, and you get Magneto.
|Maria Hill:||The mutants have escaped from wherever he was creating them. Apparently Iso-8 tends to make them...
...I believe crazy is the right word.
|Nick Fury:||We need to get them off the streets.
Then we need to get Magneto out of the Iso-8 business.
With the reports of mutants in the area, and people running scared, we need some expert intel. Send Cyclops to investigate these test subjects.
|Cyclops:||Okay, I'm going in. I've already got readings for Mutant Growth Hormone in here.|
|Tony Stark:||We're seeing plenty of Iso-8 traces too. Watch out.|
|Tony Stark:||What's it look like, Scott?|
|Cyclops:||My guess is that they've found a way to use Iso-8 as an accelerant for Mutant Growth Hormone.
But I can't be sure until I get a better look at this stuff in a lab.
Our boots on the ground have reported that this location is a possible test lab for some Frankenstein Iso-8 experiments. Send in a Hero to investigate.
There are Iso-8 signatures all over this complex, and we don't have the manpower to bust in with these riots going on. We need to infiltrate it and recover the Iso-8 inside before the test subject know we're there.
MiniBoss - MystiqueEdit
|Phoenix:||Nick, this is Phoenix. I can confirm that Mystique and Juggernaut are guarding separate lab facilities.|
|Nick Fury:||Appreciate the heads-up. Agent, S.H.I.E.L.D. prefers to have a representative from the X-Men on missions involving the Brotherhood.
Phoenix is going to fill that role on this operation. You'll be glad to have her.
|How do you like our little creations?
With six billion Homo Sapiens to play with, we're going to do incredible things. Not even the Phoenix Force can stand in our way.
|Nick Fury:||One down. Good start. Let's get Mystique back to Professor X.|
MiniBoss - JuggernautEdit
|Phoenix. Playing the puppet for S.H.I.E.L.D. again. Pathetic.
You're fighting a battle that's already over. Iso-8 means the age of Homo superior is finally here.
|Phoenix:||I see your mouth moving, Cain, but the words are Magneto's. You never could think for yourself.|
|Tony Stark:||And there's another inmate for Professor X's House of Corrections. Nicely done.|
|Nick Fury:||Don't start air-kissing everybody yet. Magneto's still out there.|
Boss - MagnetoEdit
|Phoenix:||Magneto. These monstrosities are beneath even you.|
|Monstrosities? Hardly. Iso-8 is a message from the universe, bringing news of the end of Homo sapiens.
If you can't hear it, you're not listening. Nothing is beneath me if it will bring about the age of Homo Superior.
|Tony Stark:||Iso-8 sure does bring out the evangelist in people. The Hood, Magneto...|
|Nick Fury:||Don't forget Loki.|
|Tony Stark:||How could I forget Loki? Wonder what Dr. Doom thinks about it.|
|Nick Fury:||Doom is going to make his presence known sooner or later. He's watching. You can bet on that.|
|Phoenix:||Agent, you fought well. If S.H.I.E.L.D. has more like you, all might not be lost.|
|Nick Fury:||The last of the test subjects are rounded up. And Phoenix is still on Magneto's trail.
Time for you to get back to the Helicarrier. Cyclops has theories about Iso-8, but we won't be able to get anywhere with them until...
|Tony Stark:||Yeah, boss. I know. Until I get back in the lab. Agent, the labs are going to have some new uses for Iso-8 real soon.|
|Nick Fury:||We'll need every one of them.|
|Tony Stark:||Maria, I'm at Avengers Mansion and something is going haywire.
Cybernetic systems in the whole area have gone rogue. Servo Guards are attacking.
|Nick Fury:||Servo Guards? Dr. Doom is attacking Avengers Mansion? That was quicker than I'd anticipated.|
|Tony Stark:||I don't think so. The Servos don't look coordinated. Doom's a lot of things, but he's not a hacker.|
|Nick Fury:||Lock it down, Tony. That's an order. Tighter than a flea's--|
|Maria Hill:||Agent, deploy to Avengers Mansion immediately. Assume all cybernetic objects are hostile.|
Hank Pym just called. A server farm at this location seems to be the local hub for whatever's causing this cybernetic chaos. Send in a Hero to assess the situation.
|Tony Stark:||We'll run them through Stark protocols and figure out where the attack is coming from.|
|Nick Fury:||Hank knows his cyber-stuff. We don't know what else is in there, though. Send someone who can take care of business.|
|Tony Stark:||Recover any drives and monitor logs from the security at that location.|
|Tony Stark:||Some kind of outside agency is definitely involved, but I can't tell what.|
|Nick Fury:||So much for Stark protocols.|
|Tony Stark:||Nick, if I can't figure this out, no one can. I'll stay on it.|
Good news and bad news. Bad is that a group of Sentinels is marching to cut us off. Good is that the area is evacuated and you can send someone in to shoot 'em down without worrying about collateral damage.
There are too many damn robots for your team. A lot of them are coming from this location. Send War Machine in to equalize the numbers a little bit. We could use scrap metal.
The Warriors Three are hosting a party at Avengers Mansion! What could possibly go wrong?
|Volstagg:||Is this not fine?! Truly a party for the gods! Good food, good drink, good company!|
|Sif:||There wouldst be a good deal more of the first two were it not for you, fat one. You eat like a starved troll, and smell even worse.|
|Volstagg:||Wha... what hast gotten into thee, sword maiden?! Stay thy tongue, or risk a chastising!|
|Sif:||Brother! Thor! Will you let this oaf treat me in such a manner?|
|Thor:||Sit thee down, Volstagg. Before you are made to sit.|
|Volstagg:||Hah! Come at me, brethren!|
|Fandral:||Agreed, my grim friend. I feared the whole night would pass without a good scuffle.|
|Fandral:||Foul sorcery! 'Tis not Sif, but...|
|Hahaha! Oh, the look upon thy faces! Would that I could bottle it and savor it for years to come.||Loki:|
|Thor:||Savor my hammer instead, trickster. I promise you, its mark will last far longer upon thy face.|
|Your solution to problems is as predictable as ever, brother. Then again, I suppose mine is as well.||Loki:|
|Enough of this disguise! We owe you all much suffering, warriors.||Enchantress:|
|I will smash you all... despite thy delicious hot wings!||Executioner:|
|Volstagg:||...Does this mean I do not actually smell?|
|Hogun:||We're not done yet. Take this Elixir, warriors!|
|Fandral:||My thanks, Hogun! En Garde, shield-maiden!|
|Volstagg:||Yes! And Valorous Volstagg shall bravely... Guard the Rear!|
|Sif:||Back for more? I shall teach you manners yet!|
|Agent Coulson:||Loki seems to have ran back to the Helicarrier, but the damage is done. Sorry Volstagg, looks like your shindig is ruined.|
|Volstagg:||Ruined?! HAH! Son of Coul, I have not had such revelry since Fandral shaved off Hogun’s moustache whilst he slumbered!|
|Hogun:||That was you?! Prepare thy flaxen lump of a head for a beating, fool!|
|Fandral:||Whoops! Thy swing merely took out that support beam, Hogun! Thou couldst not hit the broad side of Yggdrasil!|
|Agent Coulson:||...Right, that’s it. I’m calling headquarters. Maybe S.H.I.E.L.D. has an Emergency Divine Festivities Response Team.|
MiniBoss - SentinelsEdit
|Nick Fury:||Are those Sentinels?|
|Tony Stark:||They sure are.|
|Nick Fury:||What the hell are they doing?|
|Tony Stark:||I don't know, but I'm calling my own number on this one.|
|Iron Man:||Nick, even with field equipment I can tell that the cybernetics in these Sentinels are, um, compromised.|
|Nick Fury:||Give me the non-gearhead version.|
|Iron Man:||Something took them over. Remotely. But I have no idea what.|
Boss - Crimson DynamoEdit
|Nick Fury:||Sunuvah... I know I only have one eye, but that sure looks like the Crimson Dynamo.
Walking down the street.
|Tony Stark!||Crimson Dynamo:|
|Nick Fury:||Yelling his armored head off.
Somebody do something about that.
|Stark! At last! My new suit has a thing or two I want to show you, but there are problems...||Crimson Dynamo:|
|Iron Man:||Can't wait, Boris. I cleared my calendar just for this.|
|Wait... what is happening!?
At last the moment is here... my suit is indestructible... but it moves without me! Stark!
|Tony Stark:||Did you hear that? It sounded like he wasn't in control of his suit.|
|Maria Hill:||Could someone have taken it over remotely?
Put that together with the way the Servos and Sentinels were acting...
|Nick Fury:||Tony, you make damn sure your command-and-control systems are airtight.|
|Tony Stark:||Okay, I racked the Dynamo's suit and took it apart.
Then I compared it to the Sentinel cores we recovered. I found electromagnetic damage in all of them that I think traces to the Pulse.
|Nick Fury:||Okay. The Pulse damaged computers. Tell me something we don't know.|
|Tony Stark:||Oh, there's a lot we don't know. Like who figured this out before I did.
And how did they take over the Crimson Dynamo and a bunch of Sentinels without leaving any trace?
