"Faced with overwhelming odds and old and new adversaries alike, S.H.I.E.L.D. looks to the stars for aid."
— Mission Preview
|Tony Stark:||The Circle of 8 is suddenly going more bonkers. Seems like Skadi and Skirn weren't enough for them.|
|Would you like to know why?||Nebula:|
|Nick Fury:||Hold on. Who's this?|
|Nicholas Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D., I come bearing an offer, but first, where is the one called Thane?||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Um, excuse me. Nebula? Star-Lord. Remember me? Hi, S.H.I.E.L.D. people.|
|Nick Fury:||And who is this?|
|Gamora:||Peter Quill. But he likes it when you call him Star-Lord. He's one of us.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Star-Lord's been keeping tabs on the situation, because Nebula's got Thanos' Black Order involved.|
|Your previous resistance to the Black Order has earned a small amount of respect among those who wish to destroy you. Present Thane to me now and you will save a great many lives. He has killed his father and must answer for it.||Nebula:|
|Nick Fury:||I'm going to tell you exactly what I told Corvus Glaive when he showed up offering the same deal:
Go to hell.
|I was hoping you'd say that. I would much prefer to hunt him down myself... but in the spirit of the Tribute, I thought I would ask you to submit first.
To the hunt, then!
|Maria Hill:||She's gone. Agent, we're moving Thane to a S.H.I.E.L.D. safe house. While we do that, we need to keep Nebula away from him.|
Professor X has designed some psionic bafflers that might limit Supergiant's powers. Send a hero to protect the team setting them up.
Thanos is still safely encased in a block of amber, but that doesn't mean the Black Order won't be looking to get a hold of him. Let's send somebody to the holding area to keep an eye on things.
Circle of 8 cultists appear to have located the safe house. Send Vision to create a diversion before they can communicate with Supergiant... and before Nebula finds out.
|Maria Hill:||Circle of 8 elements seem to have zeroed in on the safe house. Vision, you're our closest field asset not already doing something else.|
|Vision:||Yes. This is an accurate assessment.|
|Maria Hill:||Can you draw them away?|
|Vision:||Probability of a successful outcome is 56%. Would you like me to initiate the operation?|
|Maria Hill:||Get to it.|
|Maria Hill:||That took some of the pressure off.|
|Vision:||I am pleased to hear that.|
|Maria Hill:||Stand by in case we need to do it again.|
Help create some cover so we can get Thane to the safe house. We've made some copies of his costume and dressed some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in them. Send a hero to fly these agents to different locations. Maybe we can draw Nebula out.
Some of the Circle of 8 cultists have advanced gear we haven't seen on them before. T'Challa wants to get a look at it to see if he can help determine its origin.
|Black Panther:||These are the Circle of 8's instruments? Let me take a look. Where are they getting this sort of equipment?|
|Tony Stark:||Skadi, is our guess. But none of this stuff is uru. Yeah, take a look.|
|Black Panther:||There is genuine skill in the craftsmanship of these items. Whoever is supplying the Circle of 8 may not be Asgardian dwarves, but they are very experienced weaponsmiths.|
|Tony Stark:||Okay, so who are they?|
|Black Panther:||I'll continue the examination and see what I can learn.|
MiniBoss - Black DwarfEdit
|Tony Stark:||There's one of the Black Order. The big muscly one, what was his name?|
|Agent Coulson:||Black Dwarf.|
|Tony Stark:||Right. That's the one.|
|Gamora:||I'm taking this one. Rocket and I have a bet. He says I can't cut Black Dwarf's skin. I say there's nothing I can't cut.|
|Tony Stark:||Ooh. Stakes. Who's taking side action?|
|Gamora. Your reputation as a killer precedes you... but killers are common. One more is not so impressive.||Black Dwarf:|
|Gamora:||You're a big one, all right. They say your skin is unbreakable.|
|It has yet to be proven otherwise.||Black Dwarf:|
|Gamora:||Then let's put it to the test.|
|I suppose we all must decide what is worth dying for. But what makes you choose Thane?||Black Dwarf:|
|Gamora:||It's not about Thane. I'm just choosing not to give in to you.|
|Feel no shame. Few can match me, and each must die in time.||Black Dwarf:|
|Gamora:||Didn't cut you last time. But this time, we'll see...|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Pay up.|
|Gamora:||Shut up, Whiskers. You all heard that, right? It confirms what Nebula said. The Black Order is looking for Thane.|
|Tony Stark:||I thought we settled that whole... where is Thane, anyway?|
|Agent Coulson:||We'll bring him in and keep him close. You won't mind if we use Avengers Mansion as a safe house, will you?|
|Tony Stark:||Why would I mind? I love it when my dad's house is used to hide fugitives with cosmic bounty hunters after them.|
|Agent Coulson:||It's settled, then.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Gamora. Hey. You owe me a buck.|
MiniBoss - SupergiantEdit
|Tony Stark:||Star-Lord's gone after Supergiant. She's the one getting the Circle of 8 all riled up.|
|Agent Coulson:||Just like the first time she was here with Thanos. The Circle of 8 must be an easy target for her.
Which reminds me, Star-Lord, you're going to want to be careful with her telepathic abilities.
|Star-Lord:||You mean I can't just punch and zap?|
|Tony Stark:||Well, you can, sure. But she'll be eroding your psyche while you do it.|
|Star-Lord:||I've had my psyche eroded before. It's not as bad as it sounds. There are workarounds.|
|Agent Coulson:||Also--if we may be serious for a moment--it appears she has taken control of Black Bolt's mind. You might well find yourself fighting him before you can get to her.|
|Star-Lord:||Whoa. All of a sudden this doesn't seem like quite as much fun.|
|Star-Lord:||So are you, like, feeding on my mind right now?
How about now?
|All minds are mine. Yours is not the finest in the area.||Supergiant:|
|Star-Lord:||Look, I might not be as smart as Black Bolt, but you don't have to be insulting. Also, let him go.|
|You are an absurd juvenile.||Supergiant:|
|Star-Lord:||Black Bolt, pal, it's me! Star-Lord! You remember me, right? I know you're in there. Don't hold a grudge, okay?|
|I would enslave you, but of what use would you be when I already have the king of the Inhumans?||Supergiant:|
|Star-Lord:||Do you ever get that bloated feeling from eating one too many minds?|
|Star-Lord:||How much of my mind did she eat? I feel like I'm entitled to know that.|
|Maria Hill:||You have plenty left.|
|Star-Lord:||You measured? Or are you just saying that?|
|Maria Hill:||Star-Lord, you're needed for continued operations in the field. Are you combat-ready?|
|Star-Lord:||Of course I'm combat-ready! When am I ever not combat-ready?|
|Agent Coulson:||Black Bolt shows no signs of lasting damage.|
|Star-Lord:||You can say that again. My ears are still ringing. Is he all better?|
|Star-Lord:||Hello? Any telepaths around? He's on our side again now, right?|
|Emma Frost:||He is, yes.|
Boss - Baron MordoEdit
|I've just had a word with a new friend... I believe you may know him.||Ebony Maw:|
|Maria Hill:||Baron Mordo? What's the Black Order want with Baron Mordo?|
|We want Thane. It's clear that you are hiding him from us. Should you choose to keep Thane hidden, then we will seek less merciful means of leverage. The choice is yours, but you are merely delaying the inevitable.||Ebony Maw:|
|Maria Hill:||Rocket, you're closest.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||And getting closer. Anything I should know about this Mordo guy? Ah, never mind. I'll figure it out.|
|It has been quite some time since I troubled myself with the actions of a rodent.||Baron Mordo:|
|Rocket Raccoon:||You're about to get punched in the mouth.|
|Perhaps I misjudged you. Of all the raccoons I have ever seen, you are without a doubt the most troublesome... and loquacious.||Baron Mordo:|
|Rocket Raccoon:||What's a raccoon?|
|Blackheart! By the baneful power of the Trinity of Ashes, I summon you forth, and bind you to my will!||Baron Mordo:|
|Ah. Fear is in the air.||Blackheart:|
|Rocket Raccoon:||No fair. Conjuring demonic pals out of thin air is definitely cheating... wait a sec.
Did you say I was scared? Aw, man, you shouldn't have said that.
|A fine beginning to our partnership, Baron Mordo...||Ebony Maw:|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Go ahead and pull that demon trick again. I dare you.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Next time, when a guy's going to conjure a demon in the middle of a fight, you could warn me.|
|Tony Stark:||Next time we know that's going to happen, we'll be sure to inform you.|
|Maria Hill:||Supergiant and Ebony Maw are both still on the move. We'll track them, but we need to hold our focus on Nebula.|
|Star-Lord:||So. You guys are pretty glad we're here, right? Otherwise... I mean, don't take this the wrong way, but we all saw that mess last time Thanos and his gang stopped by.|
|Nick Fury:||Did you find Nebula?|
|Star-Lord:||Were we supposed to be looking for her? I thought you were doing that. I was kind of tied up with Supergiant.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||And the whole demon thing.|
|Nick Fury:||Priority one, as of now, is to locate Nebula and ensure she does not find Thane. We've got him in Avengers Mansion now. I don't want to move him again.|
|Tony Stark:||I'll add a priority 1A. Stay on Supergiant's tail. The more we harass her, the harder we make it for her to get her hooks into another one of our allies.
It might also help with the Circle of 8 problem.
|Nick Fury:||Agreed. So there's 1 and 1A. Plenty to do. Let's get to it.|
"Damage control is the name of the game as coordinated attacks increase in frequency and severity. Can S.H.I.E.L.D. maintain control of the situation or will it spiral out of control?"
— Mission Preview
|Maria Hill:||We moved Thane just in time. Ronan the Accuser just hit the S.H.I.E.L.D. safe house where we had him before.|
|Agent Coulson:||Ronan? Wasn't he on our side? He was helping counter Incursions down in the Savage Land.|
|Maria Hill:||Well, now he's hunting with Nebula. And we might know why... Tony?|
|Tony Stark:||Word from S.W.O.R.D. is that Ronan is no longer an Accuser.|
|Nick Fury:||Break that down for the Agent.|
|Nick Fury:||Is Thanos dead?|
|Maria Hill:||Nebula is active with two members of the Black Order we've seen before: Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight. They're all hunting Thane.|
|Nick Fury:||I don't want the Black Order anywhere near Thane. Agent, stick with the Guardians and help them against Nebula.|
Send a hero to scout the subway tunnels under Avengers Mansion and make sure the Circle of 8 has no presence nearby.
Reed Richards has prepared a safe area for Thane in the Baxter Building in the event that we can't get Thane to Avengers Tower. Richards wants us to help shore up the perimeter first.
|Maria Hill:||Reed, is it possible we can use the Baxter Building as a safe house for Thane if the Avengers Mansion location is compromised?|
|Mr. Fantastic:||Possible, yes. But the street outside of the Baxter Building is already filling with Circle of 8.
Let me see if there's a way to get Thane in without drawing their attention.
|Mr. Fantastic:||I don't think it's a good idea. Ronan is watching, the Black Order is also keeping an eye on us, and there's no way to move a human being in without being observed.|
|Maria Hill:||Then we stick with the original plan. Keep Thane in Avengers Mansion as long as we can.|
Send Havok out on a diversionary mission. If he's seen leaving Avengers Mansion, at least some of the Black Order and the Circle of 8 will follow him.
|Havok:||I can run a diversion. I'm in Avengers Mansion right now.|
|Tony Stark:||Good. Leave and head... I don't know, somewhere all the way on the other side of town.|
|Maria Hill:||It's working. Some of the Circle of 8 pulled out of their attack to follow Havok.|
|Tony Stark:||That improves the odds a little.|
|Havok:||I'll lead them a bit further out, then ditch 'em so I can rejoin the defensive squad.|
Cage can pull off another diversion. The more of these we create, the harder it is for the enemy to focus on Avengers Mansion.
|Nick Fury:||Cage, we're kicking off another diversionary operation. You're our man. Start going after any Circle of 8 in your vicinity.|
|Maria Hill:||Make it seem like you're defending a particular spot.|
|Luke Cage:||I am. It's called New York City.|
|Luke Cage:||I don't know who was diverted from what, but there was a damn lot of cultists in the area.|
|Nick Fury:||Sounds like it worked, then.|
We're going to need to move Thane. Send a hero to do recon on different routes from Avengers Mansion to Avengers Tower.
MiniBoss - Corvus GlaiveEdit
|Maria Hill:||Drax, you're on deck. Corvus Glaive is your target. Engage him before he is close enough to damage Avengers Mansion.|
|You are a renowned warrior, Drax the Destroyer. It is a privilege to meet you in combat.
And it will be a privilege to add you to the ranks of those who have bled their last on the point of my glaive.
|Drax:||I heard you talked a lot.|
|Such a disappointing battle. I expected more strength, more cleverness. You gave little of either. Is this the best you have to offer, o Guardians?||Corvus Glaive:|
|Drax:||We don’t stop, even when our backs are on the ground. Prepare yourself!|
|Drax:||They're testing us.|
|Maria Hill:||What they really want is Thane.|
|Tony Stark:||Can someone explain to me how a guy like Thanos inspires this kind of loyalty?|
|Dr. Strange:||Fear. Simply fear. Remember, when Thanos had the Infinity Gauntlet, he was regarded as a god and a servant of death. Even the lowest ranks of his followers are commended for committing mass murder.|
|Tony Stark:||See, now I'm feeling limited by my corporate charter.|
MiniBoss - Proxima MidnightEdit
|Tony Stark:||Proxima Midnight is coming after our position. Well, specifically Groot's position.|
|Gamora:||He can handle her. But I'd rather it was me.|
|Maria Hill:||You might get your chance still.|
|I, who have faced down the champions of countless worlds, am now to face a walking plant?||Proxima Midnight:|
|Groot:||I am GROOT!|
|I am feeling slightly undignified. Let us make this quick, Groot. You may return your roots and shoots to the earth that gave them birth.||Proxima Midnight:|
|Yes. You are Groot. What of it?||Proxima Midnight:|
|Groot:||I am Groot!|
|Groot:||I am Groot.|
|Star-Lord:||Easy, buddy. We're not going to chase her. Our job is to protect Thane.
Who, by the way, hasn't even been grateful enough to stop by and say thanks.
|Tony Stark:||He's a little strange. You might be too if your father was a loony Titan in love with Death.|
|Star-Lord:||I got my own dad issues to worry about, thanks.|
Boss - NebulaEdit
|Maria Hill:||Star-Lord, we have a visual on Nebula. Please counter.|
|Star-Lord:||I am countering up a storm here, S.H.I.E.L.D..|
|Are you ready to die protecting Thane?||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Um, let me think. Maybe. Are you looking for Thane? Because he specifically said we were supposed to not tell you where he was.
By the way, you're looking great. Ruthless pursuit of vengeance really does put a healthy flush in your cheeks.
|Thane is a fugitive and a murderer. Give him to me and perhaps you will live.||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Well, about the murderer thing. I'm not sure you really have the moral high ground there.|
|Star-Lord:||Also, I'm pretty sure that Thanos has a murder or two on his record. Am I wrong about that?|
|You do not judge Thanos--Ronan and I judge the stripling who killed him. When the Mad Titan falls, chaos reigns in the wake of his passage... and I am the bringer of that chaos!||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Whoa. That sounded so good. Say it again?|
|Now. Where is Thane?||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Oh, hey, are you going to lecture me about morals again? Because I didn't really listen last time.|
|Groot:||I am Groot.|
|Star-Lord:||Yeah, I know, she got away. Geez, remind me why we're going to all this trouble to protect Thane?|
|Gamora:||Because he's sort of an Avenger now.|
|Star-Lord:||And why are we going to all this trouble to help the Avengers?|
|Gamora:||Because we're all good guys. Apparently good guys have to work together.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||What a hassle.|
|Agent Coulson:||It worries me that Ronan let Nebula take this fight on her own.|
|Tony Stark:||I hate it when he bides his time.|
|Maria Hill:||He's seeing how we handle Nebula and the Black Order.|
|Tony Stark:||So far so good on that front. The Guardians are helping. Pretty soon Ronan will have to make a move.|
|Maria Hill:||Speaking of moves, Avengers Mansion isn't going to withstand another attack like this last one. We're going to move Thane again.|
|Nick Fury:||One step ahead of the law... Tony?|
|Tony Stark:||Seriously? Nobody can ask Reed to use the Baxter Building?|
|Nick Fury:||No. Avengers Tower it is.|
"All the pieces are now in play. Will New York escape this stellar strife unscathed or will S.H.I.E.L.D. prevail with the aid of its new allies?"
— Mission Preview
|Agent Coulson:||Good thing we got Thane out of Avengers Mansion when we did. The Circle of 8 is swarming that area now.|
|Maria Hill:||Ronan is hot on Thane's trail. We don't know where Nebula is, but the whole Black Order is out with Ronan, protecting his flanks while he continues the search.|
|Agent Coulson:||If they don't already know that Thane's moving to Avengers Tower, then it sure seems that they're starting to suspect it.|
|Star-Lord:||We'll get out there and handle it.|
|Maria Hill:||Agent, you'll be with the Guardians coordinating the defensive effort with S.H.I.E.L.D. assets.|
|Thane:||I don't need S.H.I.E.L.D.'s protection. The Black Order still wants me destroyed by the will of my father, but I will not run like a child. Let me face them on my own and end this!|
Keep an extra pair of eyes on Thane. We still don't know where Ebony Maw is, and he might try a direct approach to Thane while the rest of the Black Order is trying to gain access to Avengers Tower.
Phoenix can unleash psionic energy over a wide area. Maybe she can disrupt Supergiant's control over the Circle of 8.
|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?|
Rocket Raccoon has gone hunting... but what his quarry is, no one seems to be sure.
Thane's location is no longer a secret. That means we don't have to be subtle anymore in our counterattacks... and lack of subtlety means we can get Ares in the game.
|Nick Fury:||Ares. Things are coming to a head here. The whole Black Order is closing in on Avengers Tower, along with Nebula and Ronan.|
|Ares:||Which one do you want me to take out first?|
|Nick Fury:||Whichever one's closest. Separate them so they can't coordinate a single assault. We won't survive it if they do.|
|Ares:||They're splitting up to avoid me. Smart move.|
|Nick Fury:||Also it's just what we wanted. Stay on the hunt, Ares. We're not done yet.|
|Ares:||War is never done.|
Intel suggests Ronan and Nebula are now working in concert with the Black Order. Send a hero to scout ahead, so we have a better sense of what we're dealing with.
MiniBoss - Black DwarfEdit
|Tony Stark:||Groot just ran smack into Black Dwarf.|
|Star-Lord:||This is going to be a good one.|
|Ah. One who will match me blow for blow. Which of us will fall?||Black Dwarf:|
|Groot:||I am Groot.|
|Both of us will fall, of course, in due time. The void awaits us all. Meanwhile, the battle is its own reward.||Black Dwarf:|
|You are Groot? I am Black Dwarf.||Black Dwarf:|
|Groot:||I am Groot!|
|Tony Stark:||That's Black Dwarf down. Where are the rest?|
|Maria Hill:||We still can't find Ebony Maw. He's the one I really want.|
MiniBoss - Corvus GlaiveEdit
|Maria Hill:||Corvus Glaive was in pursuit of Rocket, but Rocket looked like he had other plans and left the scene.|
|Agent Coulson:||He doesn't seem the type to back down from a fight. Maybe he had a bigger target in mind?|
|Iron Man:||Well, if Rocket's otherwise engaged, I'm taking this one. Can't let the Guardians hog the spotlight.|
|Iron Man:||I was hoping you'd be Ebony Maw.|
|I fear that will not be your only disappointment on this day.||Corvus Glaive:|
|Where is Thane?||Corvus Glaive:|
|Iron Man:||Last time was so much fun, we ought to do this again.|
|Iron Man:||Anyone hear from Rocket?|
|Gamora:||He's not so good at communication.|
|Maria Hill:||Tony, where's Corvus Glaive?|
|Iron Man:||Down and out. I'm bringing him back.|
Mini-Boss - SupergiantEdit
|Maria Hill:||Agent, we need our heavy hitters in the field immediately. Supergiant has taken control of the Hulk! They're moving toward Avengers Tower.|
|Tony Stark:||Gamora's been hunting her, so now we're set up for a whole lot of green-on-green violence.|
|Maria Hill:||You've been waiting your whole life for a chance to say that, haven't you?|
|Tony Stark:||It's the little things that make me happy.|
|If you're the galaxy's deadliest woman, maybe you can handle my new friend here. If not... well, you won't be the first who has acquired a reputation she didn't deserve.||Supergiant:|
|She's telling you to put up or shut up.||Hulk:|
|Gamora:||I heard her.|
|Looks like it's shut up.||Hulk:|
|Gamora:||Supergiant, you better hope I get to you before the Hulk finds out what you did to him.|
|Hulk:||Stop. She's out of my head.|
|Gamora:||Do I need to hit you again?|
|Hulk:||Better not. Where's Supergiant?|
|Gamora:||She's gone. No sign of her.|
|Hulk:||I'll find her.|
Mini-Boss - Proxima MidnightEdit
|Maria Hill:||Proxima Midnight seems to have a good idea of where Thane is. But Drax has cut off her pursuit.|
|Tony Stark:||Go get 'em, Drax. Look out for that spear thing. It stings.|
|Drax:||You can't have Thane.|
|I can have whatever I want... including your head, if I wish it.||Proxima Midnight:|
|Mighty Destroyer, you look unwell.||Proxima Midnight:|
|Drax:||You're used to scaring people. But I don't know how to be scared.|
|Agent Coulson:||Is that all of them?|
|Tony Stark:||Still no Ebony Maw. He's probably skulking around in a Circle of 8 hideout.|
|Agent Coulson:||Doubt it. But he could be anywhere. We'll find him.|
|Maria Hill:||For now we have to make sure all this work isn't wasted. Find Ronan and break off his pursuit of Thane.|
Boss - Ronan/NebulaEdit
|Thane:||That's enough running. I'll take care of Ronan and Nebula myself.|
|Star-Lord:||Um, no. That's going to be our job. Remember how we're trying to keep you away from these guys? If you take them on, the whole city's going to end up wrecked.|
|Groot:||I am Groot.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||I'll translate: "Whereas we are known to be delicate and surgical in our operations."|
|Thane:||That's not what he said.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Close enough. Anyway, if we've got 'em both in one place, let's go get 'em.|
|Surrender Thane to us, and then you will begin to answer for your crimes.||Ronan:|
|Emphasis on "begin." We're not done with you either way.||Nebula:|
|Star-Lord:||Which crimes are we talking about? I mean, we've been pirates and smugglers and semi-legal bodyguard types...
But I'm not sure it's a crime to protect somebody against a bunch of interstellar hit men.
And women. Sorry, Nebula.
|Thane stands accused of parricide. By defending him, you are complicit, and therefore accused as well.||Ronan:|
|Star-Lord:||Not guilty, Your Honor!|
|You are about to face what was once called a trial by ordeal. Ready yourself.||Nebula:|
|Thane, son of Thanos, present yourself for judgment!||Ronan:|
|Star-Lord:||Sorry, Thane can't come to the phone right now. Can I take a message?|
|You will not turn Thane over to face his crimes?||Ronan:|
|Groot:||I AM GROOT!|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Let me translate: "You're not getting Thane. In fact, the only thing you're getting is out of here."|
|You think you have the moral high ground? You're more of a fool than I believed. Watch your back, Peter Quill. This isn't the last time we'll meet.||Nebula:|
Epic Boss - SkadiEdit
|Rocket Raccoon:||The Guardians have got this.|
|Maria Hill:||You sure? We have plenty of backup available.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Really, we've got this.|
|You and your motley band of idiots have a surprising effect on people.||Skadi:|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Don't be embarrassed. Lots of people fall in love, sweetheart.|
|No. People feel safer when they see you. I can't imagine why... but it is true.
And that makes you my enemy, because I need fear to be the one thing every thinking mind on this planet has in common.
|Rocket Raccoon:||I'm getting kind of a standoffish vibe from you.|
|When you and the rest of your Guardians are dead or gone, I will continue my work with the Worthy. It begins now.||Skadi:|
|Where are the rest of the so-called Guardians?||Skadi:|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Time to start shooting again.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||Man, I sure could use an uru hammer. Where do I get one of those?|
|Tony Stark:||Ask Odin.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||You think I won't?|
|Tony Stark:||I'm hoping you do. I'd love to see that conversation.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||I asked whatsername, Skadi, to give me one. Even told her it was Supergiant controlling the Circle of 8, but as soon as I said that, she bolted. Not even a "thank you" or anything. Sheesh.|
|Tony Stark:||You told her that? No wonder she took off.|
|Maria Hill:||She's gone after Supergiant now. She wants control of the Circle of 8 back.|
|Tony Stark:||That's her problem. Where do we stand with the Thane thing?|
|Maria Hill:||Running a sweep to see where the Black Order is. No sign of Ronan or Nebula.|
|Star-Lord:||Star-Lord. Come on, I just love hearing people say it.|
|Maria Hill:||Fine. Star-Lord. The Nova Corps has an arrest warrant out for all of you. They've asked us to execute it and hold you in our custody until they can get here.|
|Groot:||I am Groot.|
|Drax:||Yeah. What he said.|
|Star-Lord:||Wait a minute. You're arresting us!?|
|Rocket Raccoon:||For protecting Thane and saving the Earth? Again?|
|Maria Hill:||For letting Ronan and Nebula go.|
|Gamora:||Well, we didn't exactly let them go. We decided not to blow the city apart trying to stop them from leaving.|
|Maria Hill:||You can explain that to Nova. I'm just telling you what we've heard and what we've been asked to do.|
|Star-Lord:||Man, we can't catch a break.|
|Maria Hill:||We're not going to arrest you. As far as the Nova Corps is concerned, you somehow got wind of them coming and split before we could round you up.|
|Star-Lord:||Seriously? Well, thanks. No way are we headed to Prison 42. Not a chance. * The story continues in Disney Interactive's "Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon"--CJ|
|Maria Hill:||We'll do what we can to keep you out of jail. Better move.|
