Mission 1

Mission Start

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
New York, New York. Where all the world's loony cults come to hit the big time.

The latest appears to be the Circle of 8. They're popping up like roaches, and it looks like they're on a bit of a killing spree.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
We've got field reports from Hercules himself. Herc, why don't you tell it your way.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
There is little to tell. While walking through the warrens of Chinatown, I did witness a group of barbarians. I stepped in and knocked their heads together... not as hard as I might have.

It was you, Stark, who first turned the talk to this Circle of 8.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Well, Herc, they've killed Typeface and Obnoxio the Clown. We didn't like those guys, but S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't condone ritual murder.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Get them off the street and into a padded cell.



Deploy 1

Screen Text

We need all of our archival and research material on the Circle of 8 in one place. Send a hero to gather it and get it to the Helicarrier.

Deploy 2

Screen Text

The Circle of 8 just ransacked an antique store here. Luke Cage is closest. See if he can intercept them before they get away.

Start

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Someone just called 911 from an antique store here. The Circle of 8 just tore the place apart and stole a number of items.



Luke Cage:
Luke Cage Icon 1.png
I'm close by.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Go get 'em, Cage. Recover what you can.



Complete

Luke Cage:
Luke Cage Icon 1.png
I've got a double handful of weird little trinkets. You want them back at the Helicarrier?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
That would be great. Let's get a look at them.



Deploy 3

Screen Text

Our occult watchdogs are seeing signs of demonic activity around the city. Iron Fist is sensitive to this stuff. Send him out to sweep the area and see what's going on.

Start

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Iron Fist, we've got some fluctuations in mystical energies near your location.

Could just be ripples from Dormammu's appearance, but we'd like you to make sure.



Iron Fist:
Iron Fist Icon 1.png
I'll check it out.



Complete

Iron Fist:
Iron Fist Icon 1.png
I found a stray Mindless One. Taken care of.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Only one?



Iron Fist:
Iron Fist Icon 1.png
So far. I'll keep looking.

Screen Text

Captured Circle of 8 cultists are speaking in tongues... or maybe using a lost language we don't know? Bring some recordings of their interrogations to Dr. Strange.

Start

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
We are unable to make sense of what these captured cultists are saying. If it's a language, it's not one we recognize.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
But Dr. Strange might.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Get this transcript and audio to him and see what he says.



Complete

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
This appears to bear some relation to occult runic languages known only to ancient Nordic sorcerers.

But I say that judging only from the sounds. There are no identifiable words in any of this.



Deploy 5

Screen Text

There are Circle of 8 cultists hanging around the location of the portal Dormammu used. They're not doing anything. Take them out anyway, before they make a move.

Chaos begets chaos. Energized by the appearance of the Circle of 8, Dormammu strikes at Doctor Strange!

Start

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Dormammu, by Oshtur and all the Vishanti, I forbid you to remain in this world!



I take what worlds I wish, Strange. When I have done away with this one and all of its souls are husks, only then will I move on. Dormammu:
Dormammu Icon.png



Lose

I stand victorious, Strange. Dormammu:

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Not... yet.



Would you perish now, or later? Answer carefully. Dormammu:
Dormammu Icon.png



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
I will not perish at your foul hands, demon. By the Eye of Agamotto, I will not! You have destroyed many souls, but you will not have mine!



Not yet, perhaps... not yet. But do you dare to chance it one more time? Dormammu:
Dormammu Icon.png



Repeat

Strange, the demonic realms rise as one against you. You cannot hope to prevail. Dormammu:
Dormammu Icon.png



Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
I need no hope, demon. What need has a man of hope when he is stronger than his enemies?



Ah, your bravado will taste sweet when I drink it out of your soul. Dormammu:
Dormammu Icon.png



Complete

Dr. Strange:
Dr. Strange Icon 1.png
Dormammu is banished, but he will return again. The portals between worlds are more easily opened now.

The fabric of the universe strains. We must act before it tears itself to pieces.



MiniBoss - Crimson Dynamo

Reveal

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
As is my habit, I was reading stories about myself in the library, when who should appear?



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
That's Crimson Dynamo.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
And a group of these cultists of the octadic circle!



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Then you probably should do something about it.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
I shall!



Start

You are no god! Just crazy Greek man! I know how to deal with crazy Greek man. Crimson Dynamo:

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
And I have defeated many a man in armor. Perhaps not crimson armor, but color matters not. To battle!



Lose

There, crazy Greek! Maybe you put armor on next time! Crimson Dynamo:

Hey, hero. There is stable by Central Park. You shovel it out, maybe. Crimson Dynamo:

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Mystics, cultists, visionaries. There was a time when they were dealt with.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Well, Herc, we can't put everyone in the Brazen Bull nowadays.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Matters of the occult should remain hidden. When they come out into the light, they should be crushed.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
I'm with you there. But the times are strange... and getting stranger.



Boss - Living Pharaoh

Reveal

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Herc, we have another mystical dirtbag to report: The Living Pharaoh, location incoming.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Egyptians, bah. I think little of those so obsessed with death and cats.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I don't think this one has any cats. He does have a group of Circle of 8 cultists attacking one of the library's off-site collections.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
We're trying to find out what they're after, but priority one is stopping them.



Start

A Socratic question: How many delusional would-be gods does S.H.I.E.L.D. have on its payroll? Living Pharaoh:
Living Pharaoh Icon.png



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
You? An Egyptian pretender to a throne he has only imagined? You question my nature!?

I would have destroyed you in any event, but now I will relish it yet more!



Lose

Once again, an Egyptian teaches a Greek a lesson. Living Pharaoh:

Repeat

The Circle of 8 is showing the way to a new world. You cannot stop them... or me. Living Pharaoh:
Living Pharaoh Icon.png



Complete

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
There are Scandinavian runestones here. This pretend Pharaoh might have wanted them.

The Norse! Now there were people who knew how to live!... but do not repeat that to the Odinson.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Our lips are sealed. What does the Living Pharaoh want with Norse runes?



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Maybe the question is what does the Circle of 8 want with them?



Mission Complete

Back to top ↑

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
The hierarchy of the Circle of 8 is still a mystery.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Or hierarchies.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
We don't know. It's clear they've drawn the attention of established villains and enemy groups.

The sooner we get to the bottom of their goals and origin, the sooner we know whether they're just cannon fodder.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Also we need to understand the reasons for the killing spree. Is it related to Incursions?



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
We'll know soon enough. For now, savor victory.

Now it's time for the hero's reward. Wine! Women! Maybe even song...

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Circle of 8 cultists are all over the place here, Agent. They're reacting to the residual presence of the Phoenix Force.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Reacting how, is the question. Our initial thought was that the Phoenix Force was hostile to Iso-8, but it might not be that simple.

At least these cultists don't seem to think so.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Although it might not be a good idea to base our intel on the actions of crazy people.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Duly noted. For now let's figure out why the cultists are here, and what it has to do with the Phoenix Force.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Hard facts, people. That's what we need. That and a lot fewer nutjobs on the street.

X-23 has been checking out the Hand presence here in San Francisco. Looks like the Hand is controlling the Test Subjects.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
X-23? Nobody told me about this. You sure we can trust her? I mean... <sniff>



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
What Associate Director Stark is trying to say, Agent, is that X-23 is engineered to fly into a berserker rage whenever she smells a certain scent.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Which S.H.I.E.L.D. hopes she will not encounter on this mission. Link up with her in the field.



Deploy 1

A.I.M. and the Circle of 8 both have personnel huddled up here. We don't like interagency cooperation among our enemies. Black Panther's our nearest asset. Send him in.

Start

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
T'Challa, we're observing a meeting of the Circle of 8 with a group of A.I.M. scientists. It's right around the corner from you. Crash their party, would you?



Black Panther:
Black Panther Icon 1.png
I would. They shall rue the day their paths crossed mine.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
It shouldn't be anything you can't handle. Go ahead and fly solo.



Complete

Black Panther:
Black Panther Icon 1.png
There are research samples of vibranium here, Stark. I suspect they have been stolen from Wakandan stocks.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
We'll follow up. Get the samples back here so we can confirm.



Deploy 2

A.I.M. is trying to set up a lab here. They've got Iso-8 and they might be trying to pull off some kind of attack. Break it up before they get started.

Deploy 3

Screen Text

Hand ninjas have scattered from this location and they're trying to blend into the general population. We're tracking them. Pick them off before they can fade into the crowds.

Deploy 4

Screen Text

The Circle of 8 are starting fires in this neighborhood. They're in danger of getting out of control. Get the Human Torch over there to fight fire with fire.

Start

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
There's a group of fires here, apparently set for some kind of ritual purpose. They're about to merge into one huge conflagration.

Johnny, the local fire department is overwhelmed. Can you get there and set a firebreak?



Human Torch:
Human Torch Icon 1.png
You bet. It's not every day I get to help put a fire out. Feels a little weird, but I like the variety!



Complete

Human Torch:
Human Torch Icon 1.png
Flame off! Or under control, anyway. The local FD should be all set to put it out now.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
We might have found a new use for you.



Human Torch:
Human Torch Icon 1.png
Any time you need me, baby. I'm useful for all kinds of stuff.



Deploy 5

An A.I.M. experiment went wrong here and blew up in the team's faces. They're in no shape to fight, but we should get their Iso-8 stockpile cleaned up and brought in for testing.

Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1.png
Nobody gets the drop on me, Bullseye. Sometimes I just let them think that. You should know better by now.



What I know is every time I don't kill you, I need to kill someone you love instead. Try that one on, altar boy. You ready for a little self-sacrfice? Bullseye:

Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1.png
Let you kill me? Suicide's a mortal sin, Bullseye. You need a little instruction in the faith.



Lose

Oh Daaaredeeevvvillll... where aaaarree yoooouuuu? Didn't run away back to Hell's Kitchen, didja?

You might be blind, but you're not a coward. Are you? Huh?

Come on. Come back and let's play some more. I haven't hit you enough yet.

What a letdown. Wonder if I still have one of his suits lying around. That'd be fun.

Bullseye:

Repeat

Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1.png
Always trying other costumes on. Me, Hawkeye... you must really hate yourself. Try not killing anyone for a few weeks. You'll feel better.



Why would I put myself through that kind of withdrawal when killing people is this much fun? Especially people close to you, buddy. Those are the best. Bullseye:
Bullseye Icon.png



Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1.png
That's the last time I try to reason with a homicidal psychotic.



Complete

Daredevil:
Daredevil Icon 1.png
The "blind guy" gag is tired. You know my name, and it's been a long time since I was insulted by someone noticing I'm blind.



Why would I care what your name is? I don't even care what my name is, pal. Names are just words. Words don't count. What counts is life and death. My life, your death. Bullseye:

X-23, aerial images are showing Boomerang working with both cultists and Hand ninjas here. Can you corroborate?



X-23:
X-23 Icon 1.png
That's what I'm seeing. Looks like the Hand has resorted to mercenaries. Not like them.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Ninjas with a leadership crisis. How very ISO 9001.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
The cultists are responding to the lingering aura of the Phoenix Force. But what are the Hand doing here?



X-23:
X-23 Icon 1.png
Do we care? Let's nail 'em.



Start

X-23:
X-23 Icon 1.png
If you're trying to harness the Phoenix Force with this band of gimps, I'll be improving the gene pool when I get rid of you.



This isn't your problem, girl. A word of advice: Stop taking everything so personally. This is business, that's all. Boomerang:

X-23:
X-23 Icon 1.png
Yeah. Also, do you recognize this guy hanging from the ceiling?

That's Goldbug. The Circle of 8 killing spree continues.

Nick Fury:

Abomination's running this show? We had him linked to A.I.M. What's his relationship to the Hand?



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
None that we know of. Also he's getting involved with the Circle of 8. Not good.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
He might have offered up Goldbug to the Circle of 8.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
It's the kind of thing he would do. Let's bring him in and ask him. X-23?



X-23:
X-23 Icon 1.png
On-site and ready to move. What's the holdup?



Nick Fury:

You are clear to take down Abomination.



Start

X-23:

You're not really the ninja type, Abomination. What's going on here?



I'm not answering questions. You'll know what's going on soon enough... and it'll be too late for you to do anything about it. Abomination:

No, we'll know as soon as we get you in a room with Xavier for ten minutes.

Tony Stark:

Understandable. Are there any other ritual sacrifices?



X-23:
X-23 Icon 1.png
I don't see any. But I made kind of a mess out of some of these ninjas.



Nick Fury:

Keep moving. Eliminate Hand personnel as you find them and continue gathering intel on the Circle of 8.

Understood.

All right, people. What do we know?

The Hand is cooperating with the Circle of 8. But it's unclear who is in a command position within the Hand.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
The Circle of 8 is conducting ritual sacrifices, for unknown reasons. Boss, these kinds of rituals always have a goal.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Did Goldbug, Obnoxio, and Typeface have anything in common?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Nothing comes to mind. The forensic data moles are seeing what they can run down.

Okay, this is a weird one: Circle of 8 cultists are parading around chanting slogans in an unknown language. In between breaks of murder and vandalism, that is.

Speaking of which, we've found more of their victims: Percival and Barton Grimes, the Brothers Grimm. Killed with their own exploding pies.[1] While that develops, we've got another problem right here in front of us. Nitro and Titanium Man are working with Circle of 8 cultists.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
They're both amassing Iso-8 stockpiles, but it doesn't look like they're trying to build anything.

That's what we need you to find out.

Tigra:
Tigra Icon 1.png
I'm here, Tony, and I don't see any cultists. Or any meteors. Just an abandoned boat.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
We'll bring it in. Could be a clue there.



Heroic Battle

Screen Text

A patrol of old M-Series Sentinels has suddenly gone active. Magneto has decided to keep this a family affair.

Start

Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1.png
Pietro. Wanda. Someone-- perhaps Ultron -- has commandeered some of my M-Series Sentinels.

Kindly destroy them.



Quicksilver:
Quicksilver Icon 1.png
Yes, Father. We exist, of course, to do your arbitrary bidding. Are these some of the talking Sentinels or not?



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
I think most of them can talk. They just have nothing to say.



Quicksilver:
Quicksilver Icon 1.png
Sentinels! Magneto made you, and now he has asked us to destroy you! His parenting skills on full display! What do you think about that?



Lose

Quicksilver:
Quicksilver Icon 1.png
Damn it, Wanda! We were winning until I had to save you!

...are you alright?



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
Nothing injured but my pride. Next time, brother, concentrate on winning. I can take care of myself.



Repeat

Quicksilver:
Quicksilver Icon 1.png
Sister. Try to keep up.



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
Brother. Try not to be such an ass.



Complete

Quicksilver:
Quicksilver Icon 1.png
I was hoping they would talk so I could mock them while reducing them to scrap.



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
You can mock the next ones if it'll make you feel better.



Quicksilver:
Quicksilver Icon 1.png
Bah. It's more fun when you fight opponents that feel shame.



MiniBoss - Toad

Reveal

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Toad? Who would put that guy in charge of anything? Even Magneto knew better than that.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
This is the Circle of 8. They're not rational.



Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1.png
Toad has his uses. Mystique always seems to require him. That will not change.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue.png
I do not believe Mystique is nearby. There is another presence here... no. More than one. I believe one of them is the Living Monolith. Again they attempt to block me.



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
I will get a closer look.



Start

Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
I know you're used to a prison environment, but Alcatraz is closed.



Yuk yuk. I go where I want. Toad:
Toad Icon.png



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
Slight correction: You go where I want.



Lose

I'm starting to like this chaos! Toad:
Toad Icon.png



Repeat

Like I said, I go where I want. You can't stop me! Toad:
Toad Icon.png



Complete

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
What are we seeing down in the locations we've cleared?



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
Arcane weirdness, bits of Iso-8... these cultists don't keep good records of what they're planning. There are some star charts with pictures drawn on them.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
We'll get intel teams sifting through it.



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
I'll leave it in place, then.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue.png
I am more confident that the Living Monolith is near you, Wanda. Be cautious.



MiniBoss - Avalanche

Back to top ↑

Reveal

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
There's Toad's buddy Avalanche. I have a foolproof way of detecting him. He reflects any seismic waves that just happen to pass by.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Aren't you smart.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I still have to explain that I'm smart? Nobody pays attention around here.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Whoa. What was that? Looked like some kind of meteor strike, right in the bay.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Looked a bit like the footage Coulson got when Thor first came to Earth. Get a response team over there to find out.

But Agent, we need you going after Avalanche.



Start

Hey, hey, hey, the traitor. Ready to shake? Avalanche:
Avalanche Icon.png



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
Takes a lot more than you to shake me, Avalanche.



I guess we'll see about that. Avalanche:
Avalanche Icon.png



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
I don't think Alcatraz is earthquake-proof. You ready to destroy what your bosses built?



If it gets rid of you, they'll think it's a good trade, traitor. Avalanche:
Avalanche Icon.png



Lose

I love San Francisco. Feel stronger here! Avalanche:
Avalanche Icon.png



Repeat

Ready to try again? Bring it. Avalanche:
Avalanche Icon.png



Complete

Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
More of the same... strange graffiti, experimental equipment... oh God.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
What?



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
Bodies. Bloodscream, Blood Shadow, and Bloodaxe. As if there was some kind of theme...



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
That makes eight. Coincidence? And does this have something to do with that meteor strike?



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Who say's they're done at eight?



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Too many questions, people. Get some answers.



Boss - Living Monolith

Back to top ↑

Reveal

Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue.png
Wanda, are you seeing...?



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
Yes. Got him. There's the Living Monolith.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Confirmed. Team, go in and go hard. We cannot let him get off the island. He's caused enough trouble in San Francisco.



Start

There are places where different worlds are especially close. Even before Incursions, I think this was one... Living Monolith:
Living Monolith Icon.png



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
No, you're just loopy from the Phoenix Force hangover here.



I can feel the chaos, and feel the shadows cast by the Phoenix Force. Something is coming... Living Monolith:
Living Monolith Icon.png



Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
And you are going.



Lose

Such power, coursing through the very bedrock of this place! Living Monolith:
Living Monolith Icon.png



Repeat

Yes, Scarlet Witch, face me again and look into the face of your doom... Living Monolith:
Living Monolith Icon.png



Complete

Scarlet Witch:
Scarlet Witch Icon 1.png
All right. We got him. Now where do we put him?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
The Raft for now. Until we can make arrangements at the Vault, or...



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Or what?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Nothing. I'm just wistfully remembering when we could throw all the bad guys in the Negative Zone.



Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1.png
Dangerous ground, Stark. Don't go there.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I don't think we can afford to take any options off the table.



Epic Boss - Sugar Man

Back to top ↑

Reveal

Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue.png
It is as I had suspected. Abdol was not working alone here. He has Sugar Man for a partner.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Wherever there's a sneaky plan to experiment on Test Subjects, he seems to be around.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue.png
Erik. Let us remove him from the picture, as the saying goes. Preferably out of the dimension, but then someone else would just have to deal with him.



Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1.png
I will begin by getting him out of Alcatraz.



Start

Oh, a prize subject you would be. So much raw material to work with... Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon.png



Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1.png
Experiments on mutants... no. I have been subject of enough experiments. I have been on the inside of enough fences. No more.



You make it sound all ugly and painful, but you're only seeing one angle, Magnus. I can build a new species! Starting with you... Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon.png



Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1.png
You learned all of Sinister's rationalizations. I'm sure he's very proud.



Perhaps one day you can meet him again and hear for yourself. Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon.png



Lose

Not the Age of Apocalypse, perhaps, but this is a new age... the Age of Sugar Man. Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon.png



Repeat

I will build a new species fit for this new age, and you will be its sacrificial mother! Sugar Man:
Sugar Man Icon.png



Complete

Magneto:
Magneto Icon 1.png
Sugar Man tried to shrink away again, but I have pinned him inside a graviton well.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue.png
Well done, Erik. Now we must decide what to do with him.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
There are gravity cells in the Vault. My vote would be put him there.



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue.png
You are confident it's functional again.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I may be flip and sarcastic and occasionally careless, Xavier, but I'm not about to suggest you put deadly enemies in a place where they'll just get out again. Okay?



Professor X:
Professor X Dialogue.png
Very well. Your impassioned defense has won me over.



Mission Complete

Back to top ↑

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Well, we learned one thing here, at least. We're going to need to keep a close eye on Alcatraz.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Whatever energies were released when the return of the Phoenix Force encountered Iso-8, they're strong here.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
The Circle of 8 cultists could sense that. So could the Living Monolith.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Now we need to figure out why.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I'm on it, chief. Answers coming, as they say, forthwith.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
They say that? Who says that?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I do, once in a while. Like right now. Now I'm off to the lab.
