Just when we thought we could start to focus on Doom, here’s the Maggia again.

This time down by the Brooklyn Bridge.



Maria Hill:

Ben Grimm happened to be nearby on Yancy Street and tangled with some of them. Agent, meet the Thing.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Pleased ta meetcha.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Okay. You're introduced. Now maybe you can clear the homicidal dirtbags out of the Lower East Side?

MiniBoss - BoomerangEdit

Hell of an arm that guy had.



Nick Fury:

Ya can take the boy out of Yancey Street...


You can take the boy out, all right.

Watch this.

Boomerang:

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
He didn't want to stick around and fight.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Then he'll be heading for his boss. Hammerhead's still in lockup, right?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Yep.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Then we're about to learn something. Stay frosty, people..

Boss - Hydro-ManEdit

StartEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I gotta hypothetical question. If I drank you, what would happen?


I would tear you rock from orange rock, from the inside out. Which I intend to do anyway. Hydro-Man:
Hydro-Man Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Okay. Just curious.


I too have a question. How will it feel, you rocky freak, when the elemental force of water grinds you to gravel? Hydro-Man:
Hydro-Man Icon

CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
That was quick. He went right down the drain.

Knowing what's down there, I don't want to get close enough to hit him again.



Season 1 Chapter 4 Mission 1Edit

MiniBoss - AbominationEdit

StartEdit

I want Banner. You are a poor substitute. Abomination:
Abomination Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Banner, Banner, Banner. You think I never heard that before? He's got other things to worry about.


When I am through with you, he will know to worry about Emil Blonsky! Abomination:
Abomination Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Is that your name? No wonder you're such a grouch. I may be a Thing, but at least I ain't no Abomination.

RepeatEdit

Again I am challenged by Ben Grimm? Fools. Send Banner! Abomination:
Abomination Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
That's it. I'm sick of hearing about the green guy. Now I'm seeing orange.

CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
These gamma-ray knuckleheads are all the same. Get 'em to lose their tempers and they practically beat themselves.

Who's gonna carry him back to Ryker's?



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Dropship is on the way for pickup.

We're rounding up most of the prisoners, but we're also getting a complete census of the escapees.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Do we know who's behind it?


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Not yet.

Boss - IroncladEdit

RevealEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
It's Ironclad. We've seen two of the U-Foes now.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We should tell Reed. Sooner or later they'll go after the Fantastic Four.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I already told Reed. He's tied up researching Iso-8. He don't care about the U-Foes.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
I don't care about sooner or later. I care about right now.

StartEdit

I should've known they'd send one of the so-called Fantastic Four. You are a relic, Ben Grimm...different times are coming. Ironclad:
Ironclad Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Yeah, yeah, Iso-8, tell me all about it. Maybe Iso-8 can do something about my complexion, too.


Scoff while you can, Rocky. One pilot to another, I'm telling you that Iso-8 is going to change everything. Ironclad:
Ironclad Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
You know what's gonna be different right now? I'm gonna punch you till you shut up. The quiet will be different.

RepeatEdit

Again? I have instructions to let you know that we don't have to fight. Both of us could enjoy the fruits of Iso-8. Ironclad:
Ironclad Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Fruits? Of a space ore? I ain't joining a group that talks about space ore fruit. I like it fine where I am.


Remember that when you're on the Raft and the U-Foes have taken over the Baxter Building! Ironclad:
Ironclad Icon

CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Ironclad just floated out over the river and then droppped into it. How does a guy made out of steel float?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Cosmic rays. I told you about the cosmic rays.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I don't need to hear about cosmic rays from you. Can we get some mermen to look for him?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
You want Atlanteans to leave their kingdom in a time of world crisis to look around the muck at the bottom of the East River?


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Well, if you put it like that...


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
We are going to find him. He can't stay in the river forever. Sooner or later he'll report to whoever organized the jailbreak.


Season 1 Chapter 5 Mission 3Edit

MiniBoss - PiledriverEdit

RevealEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
The RAID attacks are a diversion! The Wrecking Crew is using it to loot chemicals from storehouses in the area.

We've got a lock on Piledriver. Move in when you're ready. Ben Grimm is in the area. He spotted Piledriver first.



Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Ready to hit him when you are.

StartEdit

How do, Ben Grimm? Piledriver:
Piledriver Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Can the country-boy act, Piledriver. You're from Brooklyn.


Don't they teach you manners around here? Maybe I'll give you a lesson! Piledriver:
Piledriver Icon

CompleteEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
RAID and the Wrecking Crew. Not a good combination.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
We haven't seen too many good combinations lately.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Oh, I don't know. That last right-left-right from Ben was pretty good.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Not good enough. He still got away.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
He didn't get away. He flat-out disappeared. We're still trying to figure out how.

MiniBoss - BulldozerEdit

RevealEdit

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Keep a sharp eye out for Wrecker and Thunderball.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I got enough problems right in front of me, Fury. You keep your own eye out.

StartEdit

Hey, it's a pile of rocks for me to push around. Bulldozer:
Bulldozer Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Go ahead and try, tough guy. It ain't as easy as it looks.

RepeatEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
You shouldn'ta called me names.


You mean rockpile or wuss? Bulldozer:
Bulldozer Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
You just shouldn'ta done it.

CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Where did he go?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We got energy readings right at the moment he disappeared...weird.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Weird what?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Last time I saw readings like that was when we were dealing with Jotun.

But that can't be, unless Bulldozer turned into a frost giant when we weren't looking.


Boss - Wrecker/ThunderballEdit

RevealEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Right on schedule. Thunderball and the Wrecker.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Ben, you ready to take them both on?


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
If I ain't, I better get that way real quick.

StartEdit

Hey, Wrecker. It's the orange rock guy. Thunderball:
Thunderball Icon


Hey, Thunderball. Why you talk to me like I'm an idiot? Wrecker:
Wrecker Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Hey, both of you. What's with the newfound interest in chemistry?


Science, Thing. Not your area. Thunderball:
Thunderball Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Yer right. My area is clobberin'!

CompleteEdit

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Now that was some USDA-choice ass-kickery there.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Whaddaya talkin' about? They're both gone just like Piledriver and Bulldozer.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Tony. How come S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't have teleporter tech like that? Are we getting out-innovated by the freaking Wrecking Crew?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
I don't think that's tech, if you know what I mean.

And Ben? You have to enjoy the moment a little more. You're bringing us down.


Epic Boss - LokiEdit

StartEdit

Ben Grimm, a Thing transformed. I excel at transformations. Would you like to take another form? Loki:
Loki Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I got used to this one. What, you think I want skin again?


There are far more possibilities than skin. What would you like to be? Loki:
Loki Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I wanna be the guy who kicked Loki's ass because Loki wouldn't shut up.


Ha! An epitaph fit for Ben Grimm's tomb! I shall inscribe it myself. Loki:
Loki Icon

RepeatEdit

I'll offer you a bargain. If you let me change your shape, I'll let you defeat me. Loki:
Loki Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
No way. I know this game. You change me into you, and you into me, then you cheat.


A very smart Thing! Loki:
Loki Icon

CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Well, I don't know if I beat him or not, but he's gone.

Same damn thing he did to every one of the Wrecking Crew. Poof, gone. All I did was bust up my knuckles for nothin'.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
I wouldn't say nothing. You did save possibly thousands of lives and millions of dollars in property.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Awright. Almost nothin'.


Season 1 Chapter 7 Mission 6Edit

Deploy 3Edit

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
The Latverian embassy staffer we've been working for intel? She's been discovered. Her life is in danger.

Ben, you're closest to her location. Get her out of there and leave a message for Latveria.



Thing:
Thing Icon 1
You got it.

CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
She's all safe and sound back in my old neighborhood.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Excellent. She's already given us good stuff. I'd hate to lose her now.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Also, ya know, she's a person and it would be sad if she was murdered by Latverian goons.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Yeah. I know. That too.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
You let me know when, I'll move her along to a S.H.I.E.L.D. safe house.


Season 1 Chapter 9 Mission 1 Edit

Deploy 1Edit

RevealEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We've located Nick and Maria. Send someone to pick them up from Ryker's immediately.

We're going to need good close quarter piloting here. Ben, you mind doing the honors?



Thing:
Thing Icon 1
You got a pilot's chair that'll fit me, I'm game.

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Ben, you're going into a full-blown riot. Shoot if you have to, but only if you have to.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I got it.

CompleteEdit

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Good to be back. Now let's put the lid back on Ryker's so we can get you up to speed on what we learned.

Ben, thanks for the ride.



Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Don't mention it.


Season 1 Chapter 10 Mission 5Edit

Mission StartEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Doom is making another move!

Servo Guards have established positions all around Bryant Park and the main branch of the library.
Ben Grimm is on the scene.



Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I was payin' some late fees at the library. Now there's Servo Guards everywhere.

Come on down. I don't want to have all the fun by myself.


MiniBoss - VectorEdit

RevealEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
You were wondering where the rest of the U-Foes were, right?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
As a matter of fact, we were.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Well, I'm lookin' at Vector right now. But with all these Servo Guards raisin' hell, it's hard to tell what Vector's up to.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
We don't much care, Ben. Consensus is that Doom is about to make some kind of move. Vector's just in your way.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Well, lemme move him, then.

StartEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Vector, according to S.H.I.E.L.D. you're in the way.


Too bad, rockpile. Vector:
Vector Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
That all you got? Then I'll just get to the clobberin'!

RepeatEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Call me a rockpile again.


Don't need to! You do it to yourself! Vector:
Vector Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
That's nothin' compared to what I'm gonna do to you.

CompleteEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
That didn't take long.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
He made me mad with the rockpile stuff. I'm sensitive.

MiniBoss - VaporEdit

RevealEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
And there's the complete set. Vapor's floating around causin' trouble just across the park.

Long as X-Ray and Ironclad are still on the Raft, we got all the U-Foes accounted for.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
They are. Vapor should join them, don't you think?


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Sure, but I got the same problem Cage had. How'm I supposed to land a punch on mist?


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Cage worked it out. With the Agent's help.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I guess we'll see.

StartEdit

Clear out of here, Thing. Doom's got important work to do. Vapor:
Vapor Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
That guy? He thinks it's important every time he picks lint off that stupid cape of his.


I'll tell him you said that. Vapor:
Vapor Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Show me where he is, I'll tell him myself. You won't be able to, seeing as you'll be on the Raft.

RepeatEdit

You here to shoot off your mouth some more? Vapor:
Vapor Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Nah. My gift of gab is wasted on you.

CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Got her. But she's kind of dispersing in the breeze. Someone should bring a bottle.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
A recovery team is on the way. You and the Agent need to keep an eye out for Doom.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
And finish off those Servo Guards. Can't have them running around scaring the kids in the library.

Boss - Dr. DoomEdit

RevealEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
There's Doom! But he's not doin' anything. Just flappin' his gums behind his mask.


Doom is here today to announce the mightiest alliance of strength the world has ever seen.

Together with HYDRA and the Brotherhood of Mutants, Doom has created the Syndicate... ...which will create a new world using the unprecedented powers of isotope-8. We acknowledge no authority other than our own. Resist us at your peril.

Dr. Doom:
Dr. Doom Icon

StartEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
You gonna prop the Red Skull up in a chair and give him a membership in the Syndicate too?


He will join us in good time.

Where are the rest of your cosmic ray-addled friends? Have they left you to face Doom on your own?

Dr. Doom:
Dr. Doom Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
No biggie. Where's all your Syndicate pals?


Even alone, Doom cannot be resisted. He has never fought a battle he could not win. Dr. Doom:
Dr. Doom Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Neither has this kid. Somethin's got to give!

RepeatEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I'm gonna resist Doom some more. I just can't get enough of resisting Doom.

What a fool I am.


CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Ah, he bailed out. Must have had important business to attend to, what with the Syndicate and all.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
That was his plan all along. He wasn't really here to fight. This was a press availability.

Believe me, I know one when I see one.

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Can you recover the sub?


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Ah, geez, you want me to swim? Well, lemme give it a try. I think it's still right there off the end of the pier.


CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Got it. It's up on the pier if you wanna come by. Lotta tourists already here to gawk.


Maria Hill:

Glad to see you're taking your usual sophisticated approach, Grimm. X-Ray:
X-Ray Icon


Invisible Woman:
Invisible Woman Icon 1
As if your approach is any more sophisticated...


Our reasons are. Reed has the key to an Iso-8 innovation that will make us more powerful than you could ever be! Vapor:
Vapor Icon


Also I'm looking forward to the chance to pound some orange rocks. Ironclad:
Ironclad Icon


Thing:
Thing Icon 1

Sure. What else would I do? Fight bad guys?


CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Reed's got the goods.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Much appreciated, Thing. Good to see some of us can still see the big picture.

If we can find a way to use this Iso-8, we just might be able to hold the Phoenix Force at bay until it decides to move on.

Back to top ↑

DeployEdit

StartEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Ben, we're closing in on Loki but we can't get our support teams in place until the Jotun position under the street here is cleared.

They've frozen themselves in behind ice several yards thick.



Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Job for Johnny, isn't it? He can melt it faster'n I can mash it, probably.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We're going to drill you in through the street. Then you'll just have to mash your way out. How's that sound?


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Now that's more like it!


CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Did I miss all the fun? Aw, man.


Spec Ops 10: Mission 3 - Death in the FamilyEdit

And do what? Carry it out of the way?


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Actually, that's exactly what we were thinking.


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Great minds...


CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
The tour bus is around the corner. Not a scratch on it. I even posed for pictures.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Above and beyond, Ben. Much appreciated.

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Ben, how about if you take a spin up to that spaceship Reed saw and decommission it so none of the bad guys can use it to escape?


Thing:
Thing Icon 1
Aw, man. You send a pilot to mess up a perfectly good ship.


CompleteEdit

Thing:
Thing Icon 1
I busted it up a little, but just so it couldn't fly. Nice-looking ship.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We can fix it later if you want to take it for a joyride, Ben.
