Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
We are in full-on damage containment mode. All hands on deck. There's been a serious incident at a research facility in San Francisco.

Techs there inadvertently released a large amount of MGH/Iso-8 serum, creating uncontrolled mutations similar to the Test Subjects we've seen previously.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
As if that wasn't bad enough, the World Security Council is going after us. Dell Rusk is taking the lead. If we thought he was on our side after the incident at the Vault, well... turns out we were wrong.



The World Security Council regrets that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been unable to contain the dangerous Iso-8 compound. We are stepping in to handle this problem ourselves, and reassessing S.H.I.E.L.D.'s role in civic defense. Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Reassessing, my ass. That's pure Rusk double-speak. I've heard it before.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
It's a power play. The World Security Council would love to take over S.H.I.E.L.D.'s duties. Problem is, they don't have what we have.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Rusk sounds like he's trying to remedy that, and he's also trying to look good. Listen to this part.



The World Security Council is providing help with this problem by deploying the formidable team known as the U-Foes.

Their past misdeeds are well known, but this is not a time to wallow in the past. This is the future. Slates will be wiped clean, and new reputations forged.

Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



We'll do whatever we can to help restore order and earn the trust of the American people. X-Ray:

Tony Stark:

Who's going to fall for this?



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
That's up to us, to make sure he doesn't get away with it.



Deploy 1

Screen Text

We're getting reports of radiation poisoning from X-Ray's presence here. Send a hero to keep people out until the whole area can be sealed.

Deploy 2

Screen Text

There's a group of people here hurting from Iso-8 poisoning. The serum reacts to something in their systems. Traffic has tied up ambulances. Put a hero in a Quinjet and get them to Utopia. Beast is waiting with an antidote.

Start

Beast:
Beast Icon 1.png
Not everyone exposed to Iso-8 or the MGH serum becomes a Test Subject. Some of them just die.

We've got people in trouble here. If you can get them to me, I can probably save them.



Complete

Beast:
Beast Icon 1.png
Okay, let's get these people into treatment. We have the technology, as the saying goes...



Deploy 3

Screen Text

We need to track Rusk's history to find out what we're really dealing with. And since we've got someone who can teleport around security systems...

Start

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
We need some detective work done. Who better than our bashful bamfing badass, Nightcrawler?



Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1.png
I am ready, Tony. What needs detecting?



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Dell Rusk. Everything you can find.



Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1.png
How quiet should I be?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Don't make so much noise that Rusk finds out what we're up to.



Complete

Nightcrawler:
Nightcrawler Icon 1.png
Rusk is none the wiser... but some of his support staff will not be feeling too well.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
We've received the dossier you gathered. Combing through it now.



Deploy 4

Screen Text

These Test Subjects are going to be a problem until we get them all treated. Beast is synthesizing new antidotes on Utopia. Send a hero to pick it up.

Start

Beast:
Beast Icon 1.png
I have a new serum antidote that can be administered in the field. The sooner you can pick it up, the sooner you can finish treating the Test Subjects.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
We hear you loud and clear, Dr. McCoy. Someone's on the way.



Complete

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Let's get this new antidote out to all field teams. As soon as the Test Subjects are subdued, use it.



Deploy 5

Screen Text

Local disaster-response teams need some help managing evacuations and keeping people out of dangerous areas. Get a hero to this location pronto. Dell Rusk doesn't care about civilians, but we do.

MiniBoss - Ironclad/Vapor

Reveal

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Ironclad and Vapor just tore into a group of Test Subjects here. We could let them go ahead, and watch Dell Rusk turn us into a laughingstock.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Or we could take out the U-Foes like the trash they are.

Agent, we are not about to let Dell Rusk--and whoever might be pulling his strings--determine S.H.I.E.L.D.'s business.

We'll face up to our mistakes, but we will also face down our enemies.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Let us get into this fight before they change their minds!



Start

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Your servitude to Rusk will bring you only defeat... at my hands!



Servitude? Hardly. It's more of a mutually beneficial partnership, if that's not too subtle an idea for you to grasp. Vapor:

Muscles aren't enough. Sometimes you need a little extra that only science can provide. Ironclad:

Stark, sometimes you are as stupid as people think I am. Will I battle on? Try to stop me!



MiniBoss - Vector/X-Ray

Reveal

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Vector and X-Ray are mopping up Test Subjects all over this area. They've also shredded a S.H.I.E.L.D. fire team, allegedly by accident.



Bishop:
Bishop Icon 1.png
You think it's an accident?



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
No, Bishop, we don't. It's a message from Rusk.



Bishop:
Bishop Icon 1.png
That's what I thought. What kind of message should we send back?



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
I think we all know the answer to that.



Start

Vector will turn your force against you, and how are you going to fight pure energy? X-Ray:
X-Ray Icon.png



Bishop:
Bishop Icon 1.png
You're both in for a surprise, Pinky. Go ahead, shoot me full of energy and let's see what happens.



Lose

Now perhaps we can all settle down and let events take their course. Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



Repeat

Still think you can surprise us? X-Ray:

Complete

Bishop:
Bishop Icon 1.png
Those jokers wouldn't have lasted two seconds where I'm from. Got any other trash to take out?



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
We'll find you some more, Bishop. As a matter of fact I'm talking to some trash right now. Rusk, you've seen what Bishop can do. Think you can stand up to the rest of our team?



This isn't a fight you want, Fury. Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
I don't think you're the man to tell me what fights I want.



Your carelessness has already cost S.H.I.E.L.D. dearly. Your stubbornness will only worsen the consequences.

But nobody has ever been able to save Nick Fury from himself, have they? I guess it's time I stopped trying.

Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
That's for damn sure.



Boss - Ares

Back to top ↑

Reveal

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Whoa. Ares. Dell Rusk has access to some heavyweights.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
He's cleaning up the Test Subjects in that area, but he's also gone after S.H.I.E.L.D. field teams. Looks like Rusk wants to pick a fight with us using the pretense of collateral damage.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
We figured that part out, Opie. The question is how best to handle it.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
I know a question that will drive him to a blind fury.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Oh, good. That's what we want, is a war god in a blind fury.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Trust me, Stark. No one knows better how to battle Ares.



Start

You. Ares:
Ares Icon.png



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Me. You can't still be angry about those birds... what hair, O god of war, lieth across thine ass today?



You have mocked me once too often, Hercules. And S.H.I.E.L.D. has made mock of itself by playing at war instead of making war.

That is why I am here. To show you what true war looks like.

Ares:
Ares Icon.png

Total war is coming... Ares:

Repeat

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Brother-in-arms! Is that the chirping of Stymphalian birds I hear?



Complete

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
True war? That was barely a squabble!



Director Fury, you are only postponing the inevitable. It's time for the business of protecting civilian populations to be given to people who know how to handle it. Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
With you in charge, using your group of hand-picked mercenaries you'll call heroes.



Don't let Ares hear you call him a mercenary, Director. He'll take on S.H.I.E.L.D. himself... before I even have a chance to defund and disband it. Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



Mission Complete

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
So we're looking at the U-Foes and Ares. If that's the best Rusk can do, we're going to be able to handle this.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
As long as we can also keep handling the fallout from the Test Subjects.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
In process, boss. We've almost got them rounded up.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
We're also in a full-court press doing damage control with the World Security Council members who might be persuaded to listen.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
I wouldn't assume we've seen everything Rusk has to throw at us. Stay sharp. He won't show us everything up front.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Agreed. We've weathered the first band of this storm, but it's a long way from over.

Rusk has upped the stakes. He's announcing his own super-team... but you'll see some familiar looks.



Tony Stark:

Can you believe this? Rusk is dressing people up in versions of our costumes. I'm getting trademark lawyers on it.



...My Avengers will succeed where S.H.I.E.L.D. has clearly failed... Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
We haven't identified all of them, but has anyone seen Bullseye lately? There's a strange, um, lunatic air around the guy they're calling Hawkeye.



...And the American people can rest easy knowing that any action against civilized norms will be met with an appropriate response. Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue.png



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Uh huh. I think it's long past time S.H.I.E.L.D. came up with some appropriate resposes of our own.



Agent Coulson:

Agent, we are out to decommission Rusk's team of phony heroes. Let's get to it.



Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1.png
While you're at it, help me mop up these supposed Hellfire Club grunts. No one in the Club sent them out.

More psy ops from Rusk?



Emma Frost:

Electromagnetic interference is wrecking our satellite intel. We need intervention... maybe from a higher power.

Start

Tony Stark:

Thor, Rusk has set up a jamming network and we're having trouble breaking it.

So we'd like you to take a more direct approach. They're using drones with supporting satellites. Can you, um...

The Hellfire Club seems to specialize in making the general public hate mutants. We need one of our mutant assets -- preferably a new one -- to deploy in a show of force against the club. Shatterstar's the guy.

Start

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
With the Hellfire Club involved here, we need to get S.H.I.E.L.D.'s mutant allies involved. To show people that most mutants don't sympathize with the Brotherhood.



Emma Frost:
Emma Frost Icon 1.png
Wonderful. Mutants love being show ponies for sapiens.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I wasn't talking to you, sweet cheeks. Shatterstar, on behalf of mutantkind we'd like you to tear up this Hellfire safe house. How does that fit your mojo?



Shatterstar:

I think Emma is right. You want a show pony. But I'll do it.

Herc, you'd be doing us a big favor if you could talk to Ares. By which I don't mean pick a fight with him.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
Talk?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
See if you can point out to him that he’s on the wrong side here.



Hercules:

Ares will not care what I think. But perhaps we will fight, so I say yea! I will do this, Stark!



Tony Stark:

That's the spirit.

Tony Stark:

How'd it go?



Hercules:

We fought! Glorious battle!



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Terrific. Did you manage to, you know, talk? Like I asked you to?



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1.png
What need has a warrior of words? Ha! I jest with you, Stark. We spoke, and even so, I know not what he will do.

Speaking of psy ops... Moonstone's in charge here. Hard to tell if she's trying to work the Hellfire angle or if Rusk put her in charge of them.

Ask her, Emma. She likes to talk.



Emma Frost:

I'll do that.

Nicholas Fury! We will now fight together.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Is that right? Did Herc convince you that you chose the wrong side?



Ares:
Ares Icon 1.png
I do not confess error, Fury. I speak of new knowledge. Dell Rusk is no warrior. If I am to choose a side in the war, it will not be his.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Well, that all sounds great, until you decide to switch things up again.



Ares:
Ares Icon 1.png
You question my word, Stark?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
I just want to know whether Rusk got it before we did.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Your concern is noted, Stark. Ares, welcome aboard. As long as we can trust you, we'll trust you.



Start

Ares:

You participate in a ruse that will cost countless lives. For what? There is no glory in what you do.



Please, war god. If that's what you are. You've sacrificed your share of lives to get what you want. Moonstone:
Moonstone Icon.png



Ares:
Ares Icon 1.png
Enough about me. How come you're not pretending to be an Avenger?



I said I'd work for him, but I wouldn't be part of his perverted costume party. As a mental-health professional, that kind of pretense wouldn't make me look very good. Moonstone:

Take note, vulture. Here is what a true predator is like.

Did you kill him?



Elektra:
Elektra Icon 1.png
Not yet. Should I?



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
We'd sort of prefer to interrogate him instead. Or at least first.



Elektra:
Elektra Icon 1.png
I can interrogate.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
No, no, no. Bring him in, in one piece, reasonably undamaged.



Elektra:
Elektra Icon 1.png
If I must.



MiniBoss - Dark Thor

Thor:

I will end this.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Not such a good idea, Thor. With Incursions all over the news all of a sudden, we can't have our people lead a team against Rusk's imposter version.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Supporting roles are fine, but we should avoid the optics of Joe Sixpack seeing this fight and thinking the Avengers are fighting each other.



Thor:
Thor Icon 1.png
Optics? Does S.H.I.E.L.D. fight for opinions?



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
S.H.I.E.L.D. chooses not to make things more difficult for its personnel. Stand down, Thor.



Thor:
Thor Icon 1.png
Stand yourself down, mortal. I will show the people of Earth who is the real Odinson.



Start

I am the God of Thunder! Dark Thor:

Thor:
Thor Icon 1.png
You are a mad mechanical dog, unfit even for death in battle. Yet that much I will give you.

Now you see I am the God of Thunder! Dark Thor:

Can you stop the thunder? I say thee nay! Dark Thor:

Hold on, Thor! Hold on! We don't need to kill anyone.



Thor:
Thor Icon 1.png
Perhaps we do, Fury. Perhaps that is exactly what we need.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
I said stand down.



Thor:

You issue orders to a god?



Nick Fury:

When you walk on my planet, you're damn right I do. You're done there.



Boss - Dark Wolverine

Wolverine:

My kid is pretending to be me, or something. For Rusk. I should take care of this one.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Negative, Wolverine. You may not have heard before, but while Incursions are new and disturbing we're not having any of our people fight Rusk's substitutes.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
We're worried people won't understand.



Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1.png
Bub, I don't care whether anyone understands. Not you, not Fury, not your make-believe median citizen sheep. This one's mine. You can't look me in the eye and tell me different.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Ares?



Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1.png
So you're not worried about a lunatic with an axe, but you're worried about me. Figures.



Start

God of War. You got a head-start in the tough-guy department, but I bet I can catch up. Dark Wolverine:

Ares:
Ares Icon 1.png
Ah, the puppy thinks his teeth are all grown in.



Don't need teeth when I have claws. Dark Wolverine:

Wolverine:

Claws? I got those, too.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Wolverine, stand down! This is--



Wolverine:
Wolverine Icon 1.png
This is my fight, is what it is. Back off, Ares.



Lose

Your time is over, old man. Now where's Ares? See if he calls me a puppy again. Dark Wolverine:

I don't care about Rusk. I don't care about anyone. I care about another chance to settle the only score that matters. Dark Wolverine:

I let Wolverine have that one, but the next one is mine. Ares:

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue.png
Afraid that's it for now, Ares. Rusk hasn't finished assembling his team, and now it looks like he's not going to.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
We've shot down his fake Avengers team and now we're going after him.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Not so fast. First we find out what's happening with Incursions. Then we worry about Rusk. If he gets in our way again, we slap him down again, but let's stay focused, people.

Agent Coulson:

Rusk's fake Avengers are out of circulation for now, General.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Just what I wanted to hear. Mission accomplished, at least temporarily. Let's get back to figuring out these damn Incursions.



Oh, you haven't accomplished as much as you might think, Fury. This is only the first act of quite a long drama. Dell Rusk:

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
I don't go for drama. You'll find that out.



I believe we both know more about each other than either of us realizes. Dell Rusk:

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Also I don't go for cryptic BS. You want a fight, Rusk? You got it. S.H.I.E.L.D. isn't going anywhere.
