Ready to go. Now then. To the UN! Message to RAID command: Mission begun. Deploy Bulldozer and support personnel. Send.
Message to RAID command: Objective within range, beginning final approach. S.H.I.E.L.D. pursuit is getting a bit aggressive. Bulldozer is captured, I believe. Out of commission at any rate. Send.
Confirm objective: retrieve records.
What a trivial errand. How infinitely more interesting to just destroy the place and watch heads of state pontificate over its ruins! But no. We must do what we were hired to do, so we can get our hands on more Iso-8. Therefore, an archivist I must be.
WAR MACHINE ARMOR. SHIELD AGENT. SUPPORT TEAM.
The tinkering is its own reward, Colonel Rhodes. I’d hate to spoil the surprise for either of us.
When you come apart, I won’t complain about finding bones.

S.H.I.E.L.D. PERSONNEL BRIEF: Fixer
Classification: Mercenary (Weapons Development Specialist)
Criminal Record: Wanted by several countries for various crimes, and by his previous employer, SHIELD, for treason and theft of secret archives.
Unique Weapons: Too numerous to list here. Fixer’s specialty is improvised weapons of mass destruction and he frequently uses a jet pack harness and armored battlesuit in order to get close enough to use them.
Known History: Fixer defected with his partner, ex-PsyOps agent Mentallo, to Hydra after stealing sensitive information from the HeliCarrier not long after completing their SHIELD training. Whether or not the duo were Hydra double-agents all along or simply opportunists the agency has not yet determined. After performing numerous missions for Hydra Fixer and Mentallo struck out on their own as independent operators; it is believed they are no longer working together, however.
Observations: “Fixer looked to be turning over a new leaf for a while there, but I understand it was all some kind of ruse. Big surprise. Rumor has it he’s been hanging out with Baron Zemo again. We don’t know what they’re up to yet, but it can’t possibly be good, can it?” — Jasper Sitwell
