Mini-Boss - Mystique
|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.
Mini-Boss - Juggernaut
|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.|
Boss - Magneto
|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.|
Mini-Boss - Avalanche
|Phoenix! I see Xavier has sent the big guns to rain on our little parade.||Avalanche:|
|Phoenix:||You know, if you'd kept your bar in San Francisco you would have stayed out of trouble.|
|In times like these, sometimes you need a little more excitement than that.||Avalanche:|
|Phoenix:||I'm afraid your excitement won't last.|
|Phoenix:||You can bring in support teams now. Avalanche is out and this area is secure.|
|Maria Hill:||They're on the way.|
|Phoenix:||I will seek out the rest of the leaders.|
Mini-Boss - Constrictor
|Maria Hill:||Aerial surveillance has Constrictor at this location. Phoenix, can you confirm?|
|Phoenix:||He's there. Just spotted him myself.|
|Maria Hill:||As Director Fury mentioned, Constrictor used to work for us. When you're going after him, give him a little extra.
Remind him that S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't forget turncoats.
|Tony Stark:||On a less emotional note, does anyone think it's unusual that he's involved with a mutant riot?|
|Maria Hill:||Prison riots are no place to look for purity of purpose. They all just want out.|
|Tony Stark:||I don't know about that. How'd he get the Constrictor Battlesuit back? Why was it even on Ryker's?|
|Maria Hill:||Move in.|
|Phoenix. I know you only by reputation.||Constrictor:|
|Phoenix:||Likewise. I hear you're a mercenary and S.H.I.E.L.D. turncoat.|
|We understand each other as well as we need to, then.||Constrictor:|
|Phoenix:||He ran. Now we know why he was involved, at least.|
|Nick Fury:||Looks to me like someone gave him his suit back so he could slow us down while a bunch of these other malcontents escaped.
I'm starting to like him even less.
Boss - Juggernaut
|Phoenix:||Juggernaut's the ringleader here.|
|Tony Stark:||He could put his head down and lead them all right out, but he isn't.|
|Nick Fury:||That's not his play here. Magneto wants the Brotherhood to sow chaos.
I'll bet you anything you want that he proposes his own solution real soon.
|Phoenix. Come to join the fun?||Juggernaut:|
|Phoenix:||People are dying. You're sowing chaos. It must end.|
|You don't want chaos? Sweetheart, stopping chaos in a world full of Iso-8 is like stacking marbles. Give it up.||Juggernaut:|
|Phoenix:||That's what I was about to say to you.|
|You can try and make me.||Juggernaut:|
|There's nothing on this planet stronger than me, Phoenix.||Juggernaut:|
|Phoenix:||Kiss your biceps, mutant wannabe. I know you want to. Then let me show you something about strength.|
|Phoenix:||I have stunned him, but he never stays down for long.
Whatever you must to do bind him, do it quickly.
|Nick Fury:||We're on it. Agent, back to the Helicarrier. We need to put our heads together and make some sense of a few things.|
|Maria Hill:||Phoenix, Professor X needs to hear about the Circle of Eight immediately.|
|Phoenix:||Agreed. I'm on my way.|
|Phoenix:||Xavier says this doesn't smell like Magneto's work.|
|Tony Stark:||I'm glad somebody agrees with me.|
|Nick Fury:||I'm just aiming to put this Circle of Eight out of business before they do their next crazy apocalyptic thing.|
|Phoenix:||Constrictor is cracking the whip over the test subjects, Nick.|
|Tony Stark:||The Brotherhood has proclaimed today the first official day of Mutanthattan.|
|Nick Fury:||He didn't call it that, did he?|
|Tony Stark:||No, that one's all mine.|
|Maria Hill:||Constrictor's not a mutant, so he'll only fight as long as he thinks it's worth his while.|
|Tony Stark:||Let's get him to that point quickly, shall we?|
|Phoenix:||Fighting for the Brotherhood, Constrictor? You think they're going to make you into a mutant?|
|I think the checks clear. And I might be a mercenary, but you couldn't pay me enough to be a mutant.||Constrictor:|
|Phoenix:||Strange. You've always seemed like a wannabe to me.|
|Tony Stark:||Well done. Hang onto Constrictor until we can pick him up.|
|Phoenix:||We need to keep moving. Magneto is powering up his device in the Chrysler Building.|
|Tony Stark:||We know. But we can't go in without securing the area.|
|Tony Stark:||Otherwise we'll have Magneto in front of us and the whole horde of test subjects coming in from behind.|
Mini-Boss - Sabretooth
|Phoenix:||So here you are, running interference for one more Magneto doomsday scheme.|
|There aren't enough of us, Phoenix. He's going to balance the numbers out a little.||Sabretooth:|
|Phoenix:||How many people is he going to kill to do that?|
|Maria Hill:||Phoenix, report.|
|Phoenix:||Sabretooth is under control. By which I mean unconscious.|
|Maria Hill:||Well done. Agent, fuel up and stay on standby. We're going to have to hit the Chrysler Building sooner rather than later.|
Boss - Magneto/Mystique
|Nick Fury:||There's the boss man himself. Magneto has been sighted. Phoenix, you see him?|
|Cyclops:||Sorry, Tony. Magneto would've been a powerful ally, but now we have to face facts.|
|Tony Stark:||Looks like it. Let's get down to business.|
|Agent Coulson:||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:||The Phoenix Force will help you sense his presence even if he's masking himself, won't it?|
|Phoenix:||It might. Shaw is very good at disguising his psychic signature, but nobody can hide from me for long.|
|Phoenix:||I haven't sensed him at all. But again, that might mean only that he's successfully disguising his presence.|
|Agent Coulson:||Uncertainty. The great enemy of successful planning. Well, thank you, Phoenix. We'll figure something out.|
|Professor X:||Shaw won't be able to hold himself back forever. If nothing else, his ego will demand he get involved.|
|Phoenix:||So, let me guess. You've given up scheming against Shaw and decided to... ahem... ally with him instead.|
|Jealous? You consort with cosmic forces, and you're jealous because you think Shaw is my boyfriend? What delicious envy coming from you.
Poor lonely Phoenix.
|You want to be Black Queen, don't you? Admit it.||Selene:|
|Phoenix:||No. I would just prefer that you weren't.|
|That sounds like Emma talking. She's turned all you X-Men into her cat's-paws, hasn't she?||Selene:|
|Phoenix:||She might think so. You might too. But the truth is I don't care what you think about me.|
|Phoenix:||She'll go off to lick her wounds and complain to Shaw.|
|Emma Frost:||Marvelous catfight, Jean dear. I do wish sometimes that you would just kill her. The Club would be much better off.|
|Phoenix:||And now we get to the part where you already know I'm about to tell you that I'm not interested in doing your dirty work.|
|Tony Stark:||Kang has vanished in a puff of tachyons, the Sentinels are scrap, Crimson Dynamo is on his way to the Raft yelling about suit malfunctions...|
|Nick Fury:||Par for the course.|
|Maria Hill:||We also found the remains of the Two-Gun Kid in an empty machine shop near South Basin.|
|Phoenix:||Sacrificing. That's what the Circle of 8 is doing. I am sure of it.|
|Nick Fury:||That's what we're thinking, too. But to what? Answers, people. They're not doing this just for fun.|
|Doctor Voodoo:||My belief is that the Circle of 8 seeks to appease these Incursions through sacrifice.|
|Agent Coulson:||I'm so glad you said that, Dr. Drumm. Nobody would have paid attention to me if I had, but I think you're right.|
|Nick Fury:||Find out.|
Boss - Blob
|Maria Hill:||The Blob is clearing the area around that building.|
|Nick Fury:||Another mutant working with the Hellfire Club. I don't want Emma Frost down there, I don't trust her.|
|Emma Frost:||I can hear you, you know.|
|Nick Fury:||Agent, take Phoenix and investigate. Emma, you stay where I can see you.|
|Phoenix:||You know Hellfire Club membership is invitation-only, don't you, Blob?|
|Oh, they rolled out the red carpet for little ol' me.||Blob:|
|Phoenix:||Why would they do that?|
|I was told I have "A certain gravitas."||Blob:|
|What, you think you can levitate me?||Blob:|
|Phoenix:||No. I don't have to. Watch.|
|Phoenix:||Blob is down for the count, Nick. At least until he can dig himself out.|
|Nick Fury:||We'll get him out of there before he wakes up and does his immovable-object trick again.|
|Phoenix:||His memories are of the White Queen as well, but recently. Emma was already here at the time he remembers talking to her at the club.|
|Emma Frost:||Do you trust me now, Fury?|
|Nick Fury:||No. Now it sounds like there are two of you I don't trust.|
|Phoenix:||Transfer's done. No problems.|
|Tony Stark:||Excellent. Now I have a lab full of Sentinel pieces staring at me.|
|Nick Fury:||Take 'em apart. Maybe we can figure out what the Dynamo did to that Omega Sentinel.|
|Tony Stark:||Aye aye, captain!|
Special Operations - Avengers Vs X-Men: Mission 3 - Versus (Avengers Side)
Epic Boss - Phoenix
|Tony Stark:||Uh oh.|
|Captain America:||Uh oh?|
|Tony Stark:||Yeah. The shards got together, all right, but they haven't left yet.
They all reunited in a familiar place: Jean Grey.
|You think I can’t hear you?||Phoenix:|
|Tony Stark:||Jean, hey, welcome to Alcatraz. Sorry the Phoenix Force won't be sticking around. Actually, no, I'm not.|
|That's not your decision. I make the decisions now. I am Phoenix.||Phoenix:|
|Captain America:||That sounds an awful lot like a threat.|
|That's because for all your platitudes, you've never understood mutants. Or trusted us. That ends now, one way or another.||Phoenix:|
|Captain America:||We’ve fought together too much to be divided now, Jean.|
|Captain America:||I think it's got a handle on you. It already killed you once. Let go.|
|I will not. Now leave. I won't give you another chance.||Phoenix:|
|Tony Stark:||Hang in there, Cap.|
|You picked a fight you can't win, Steve. Back off.||Phoenix:|
|Phoenix:||It's gone. You did that. I'm--I don't know what I am.|
|Captain America:||Easy. Give yourself a minute to get used to it. Tony?|
|Tony Stark:||Yeah. It worked. The Phoenix Force has left the planet. On its way out it fried most of the telecom satellites within a thousand miles.|
|Captain America:||Jean. Did it--?|
|Phoenix:||Just like last time. There are traces of it left. Probably in all five of us. But I can feel both times it... possessed me.|
|Tony Stark:||We dodged a bullet there, team. A giant cosmic planet-destroying bullet. You don't mind if I call you team, do you?|
|Phoenix:||No. I guess not.|
|Cyclops:||So it's gone. Mostly.|
|Iron Man:||I'd offer condolences, but they would be insincere.|
|Cyclops:||I hope that wasn't our last shot.|
|Captain America:||To survive? No, it wasn't. Long as we stick together, that's our best shot.|
|Phoenix:||It'll have to be now.|
|Iron Man:||A lot of that Iso-8 variant was consumed when it got close to the unified Phoenix Force. We can put our heads together studying what's left.|
|Iron Man:||And you still got traces of it. All five of you, right?|
|Captain America:||Pulse, Phoenix Force... whatever comes along, remember. We have to fight it together.|
|Cyclops:||Gambit, we've put together a controlled experiment that needs one of us to be the focus.|
|Phoenix:||We're testing how this variant Iso-8 counters the Phoenix Force and looking for a way to combat it.|
|Cyclops:||Mind being a guinea pig? You get a little taste of the Phoenix Force as an incentive.|
|Gambit:||Won't be the first time, mon ami. Let's get this figured out.|
Boss - Captain America
|Phoenix:||Captain America has arrived on Alcatraz. He must be looking for you, Scott.|
|Emma Frost:||Oh, and S.H.I.E.L.D. has been monitoring our activities against HYDRA. I can hear their admiration from here.|
|Cyclops:||Tony couldn't come himself, I guess. Don't do anything until Cap and I talk, Emma.|
|Phoenix:||Careful. They've got a huge mass of the variant Iso-8, and I can feel it...|
|Cyclops:||Me too. They want to keep it at bay until it decides to move on. It's time to settle this for good.|
|Cyclops:||I hated to do that.|
|Emma Frost:||Needed to be done. Mister Truth and Justice there gets a little too full of himself.|
|Phoenix:||Scott, can you--oh, no.|
|Emma Frost:||Hit the Helicarrier! Now!|
|Phoenix:||No no no... It's too late. The Phoenix Force. It's gone.|
|Magik:||Even when we win, we lose.|
|Cyclops:||Those bastards. This isn't over yet.|
Epic Boss - Iron Man
|Magik:||Iron Man is deflecting everything we can throw at that Helicarrier.|
|Phoenix:||Fine. They might think they've won, but I can still feel the Phoenix Force. It's not gone yet.
If we can destroy that Iso-8, it might still come back.
|Tony Stark:||You made your point, Scott. But you're not hearing ours.
It was never about keeping mutants down. It was about keeping everyone alive. Nobody ever controls the Phoenix Force.
|Cyclops:||We'll never know now.|
|Tony Stark:||Good. Last thing we need is one more rogue cosmic phenomenon.
I mean, remember the broccoli people?
|Phoenix:||We did have it under control, Tony. You didn't have to handle it the way you did.|
|Cyclops:||You can't stand the idea of mutants controlling their own fate, can you?|
|Emma Frost:||We know you think you're right. Nothing new there.|
|Tony Stark:||Same thing. Now come on. We've got evil to fight.|
|Tony Stark:||Jean, we need some serious cosmic elbow grease to get through that shield. Would you mind asking Hot Wings if we could borrow a cup of world-leveling primal flames?|
|Phoenix:||I don't think you're giving this the serious treatment it deserves. Are you SURE you want me to try to contact the Phoenix Force again? After what happened at Utopia?|
|Tony Stark:||Sorry, nerves. Look, we've all seen what the Phoenix Force can do. I wouldn't ask if we had any other option.|
|Phoenix:||Just so long as you understand the consequences.|
|Phoenix:||No Pharaoh, but there was some kind of equipment behind the shield. It's ashes now.|
|Tony Stark:||Good, that probably bought us more time--|
|Phoenix:||Oh, and the Phoenix Force is coming to incinerate the planet. Did I mention that?|
Don't do that.
|Phoenix:||You're not the only one allowed to make jokes, Tony.|
|Phoenix:||I'm here, Hank. But if a lot of them come running, I might need a little help.|
|Beast:||Perfect. It worked like a charm. And Jean, you were also perfect--as always.|
|Phoenix:||You smooth talker.|
|Maria Hill:||Phoenix, we'd like you to try to shock some of the Circle of 8 members enough that Supergiant's hold over them is broken.|
|Phoenix:||Any particular way you'd like this done?|
|Maria Hill:||You're the psionic. Can you do it?|
|Phoenix:||Oh, I can do it. The question is, what's going to be left of them after I do?|
|Phoenix:||Some of the Circle of 8 are freed of Supergiant's control... but not all. She is an extraordinary telepath. I have encountered only a few with such power.|
|Agent Coulson:||Um... think you could try it again?|
