"Lizard kings and super science create a deadly combination for the Savage Land's native inhabitants."
— Mission Preview
|Tony Stark:||Welcome to the Savage Land, Agent.|
|Maria Hill:||It's a place in Antarctica where--for a lot of reasons we're not going to get into--polar climate gives way to untouched jungle wilderness.|
|Nick Fury:||S.H.I.E.L.D. has maintained a presence here for years, but we're ramping up operations now because Sauron is making a play to control the entire region.|
|Tony Stark:||If that wasn't crazy enough, you're going to see other things here that you never thought possible. Dinosaurs, for one, and that's where our real problem starts.|
|Maria Hill:||Iso-8 fell in huge quantities down here, and the High Evolutionary has started using it to augment the local saurian populations.|
|Tony Stark:||That, in turn, has drawn other scientifically minded loons. They're piggybacking on the High Evolutionary's work.
If you don't mind me coining a phrase, we're dealing with "Iso-Saurs".
|Ka-Zar:||You're dealing with me as well. Stark, those Iso-Saurs are mutated Hauk'ka. Their powers of speech are lost, but they still possess their sentience. I fear their presence here and Sauron claiming control are not a coincidence.|
|Tony Stark:||Agent, meet Ka-Zar.|
|Ka-Zar:||My father discovered this land and its Vibranium resources. Now, as the protector of the Savage Land, I must correct this imbalance of power.|
|Nick Fury:||Look for them, and you'll find the truth about the Iso-Saurs.|
Wolverine's going on a search-and-destroy. His primary target will be the Iso-Saurs.
|Maria Hill:||Logan, we're sending you out solo to clear an operational space for our field teams to land and prepare. Don't start anything you don't have to.|
|Wolverine:||I'll leave the locals alone. Don't worry. You know me. Surgical strikes R Us.|
|Wolverine:||I found some Iso-Saurs and a few cavemen here and there. But guess what else?|
|Maria Hill:||Do tell.|
|Wolverine:||An A.I.M. base. Population zero now, but you better follow up.|
Send a hero to scout the area. We know there are groups of escaped Hauk'ka Iso-Saurs... and doubtless there are other threats we don't yet know about.
This part of the Savage Land is close to the border with the regular Antarctic. That makes for some unstable weather as the climates collide. Maybe Storm can settle things down.
|Maria Hill:||Storm, we're having a hard time keeping Quinjets in the air because of storm fronts over the mountains. Would you see what you can do about that?|
|Storm:||I will calm things down. But it won't last long. Where jungle meets subzero desert, nothing is calm for long.|
|Maria Hill:||Understood. We'll take what we can get.|
|Maria Hill:||That's looking much better. Okay. Deploy scout teams and let's get a more complete look at this sector.|
Satellite intel is picking up strong Iso-8 signals all over the Savage Land. Send a hero to get visuals on those locations and find out whether they're natural deposits or caches Stegron has hidden away.
Our mission here will go much more smoothly if we make some friends among all the various populations who aren't already allied with our enemies. Send a hero to reach out and make friendly contacts.
|Agent Coulson:||The more we can get the Savage Land's indigenous populations on our side, the more effective we'll be countering threats.
So let's do a little diplomacy. Meet local leaders, explain what we're doing here, ask people to get on board.
|Agent Coulson:||No fights yet? Okay. That's a good start.|
MiniBoss - LizardEdit
|Maria Hill:||That's the Lizard, isn't it?|
|Agent Coulson:||It is. He must see the Iso-Saurs as a way to empower himself.|
|Ka-Zar:||The Lizard is not a true saurian. Sauron has already threatened him with death if he does not leave the Savage Land.|
|Ka-Zar:||One hesitates to do Sauron this favor, but it's probably best.|
|Ka-Zar:||Free your Hauk'ka and yield. That is my first and only offer.|
|You don't run the Savage Land, Ka-Zar. Soon, neither will Sauron. This place and its resources belong to those who can take it.||Lizard:|
|Ka-Zar:||It belongs to no one, Lizard. The Savage Land will be free. Free of you, to begin with.|
|Never thought I'd see you and Sauron on the same side.||Lizard:|
|Ka-Zar:||If that is your understanding, you are mistaken. We have a common enemy, but I would wear a suit and tie before I would ally with Sauron. Once I have defeated you, it will be his turn.|
|No! In New York I am a monster... here I will be a king!||Lizard:|
|You've learned not to cross the Lizard. Sauron will soon learn the same!||Lizard:|
|Ka-Zar:||Lizard, on this Sauron and I agree: You must leave the Savage Land. Now!|
|Ka-Zar:||The Lizard used his Iso-Saurs to cover his escape. I shall pursue. He will not be able to evade me for long.|
|Maria Hill:||Where's he going to go? No place in the Savage Land will be safe.|
|Tony Stark:||He's resourceful. He'll figure something out. Next thing you know he'll turn up in New York with Iso-Rats or something.|
|Maria Hill:||No. No no no. Bite your tongue.|
MiniBoss - VultureEdit
|Tony Stark:||Vulture. Did someone bring him in for tech support? Can't imagine he has any special genetic expertise. Unless the High Evolutionary wants to build new line of super-powered geriatric dinosaurs.|
|Agent Coulson:||He and the Lizard have a history together going all the way back to the first incarnation of the Sinister Six. It's probably that simple.|
|Nick Fury:||That would be my guess, too. Either way, we clear him out. Ka-Zar?|
|Ka-Zar:||I stand ready.|
|Hey, Tarzan. Do that yodeling thing. Where's Cheetah?||Vulture:|
|Ka-Zar:||I have no cheetah. Instead, I have Zabu. At him!|
|Ahhh! It's only a joke, you fool...! Wait! Nice kitty?||Vulture:|
|The Savage Land isn't going to stay savage forever. Progress is coming. You can't stop it.||Vulture:|
|Ka-Zar:||Zabu, after him!|
|Ka-Zar:||Vulture released all the Iso-Saurs from their pens into the wild before he fled.|
|Agent Coulson:||Field teams are going after them, Ka-Zar. We're also seeing Incursion sites throughout the Savage Land, and we're trying to contain those, too.|
|Ka-Zar:||I will help.|
|Agent Coulson:||Let us handle that. You keep clearing these labs where the Iso-Saurs are being created.|
|Tony Stark:||I have something to confess. I'm a little disappointed you didn't yodel. But Zabu does a mean meow.|
Boss - StegronEdit
|Ka-Zar:||I have tracked some of the Iso-Saurs from Vulture's laboratory to this one... but I have not found Mr. Sinister. Instead, Stegron is here!|
|Maria Hill:||That's our new mission priority, then. If we give him time, he'll be creating new species faster than we can catch them.|
|Tony Stark:||He'll also start a war with Sauron. There is no love between those two at all. If that happens, we'll have too many fires to put out. Nail him.|
|Ka-Zar:||Agent, the Savage Land is depending on us.|
|I should have expected to sssee you. Are you here to tell me I shouldn't ssstart trouble? I should accept Sssauron as the leader of the Sssavage Land?||Stegron:|
|Ka-Zar:||Hardly. I wouldn't expect anyone sane to believe in Sauron as a leader.
On the other hand, you are hardly a better choice.
|Ssso it'ssss a fight you have come for. You will have it! Sssaurians need no mammals to lead us!||Stegron:|
|Ka-Zar:||Nor do mammals have need of saurian tyranny. The Savage Land deserves peace, and that is not what you bring.|
|O mighty protector! Yesss... so be it. The Sssavage Land will be mine... and you will be a meal for these evolved Hauk'ka.||Stegron:|
|Running around in a loincloth with a tiger is a boy'sss fantasssy, Ka-Zar. The war for the Sssavage Land will be fought by adults.||Stegron:|
|Ka-Zar:||Are the Iso-Saurs still hungry? I only ask because Zabu is. At them, Zabu!|
|Ka-Zar:||S.H.I.E.L.D., I cannot contain all the Iso-Saurs coming out of this bunker.|
|Maria Hill:||We're on our way. We'll catch as many as we can. What's Stegron's status?|
|Ka-Zar:||He fled. He knows the Savage Land well enough that he may be able to hide for some time.|
|Maria Hill:||We'll keep an eye out for him... but maybe we can just let Sauron find him first.|
|Tony Stark:||That was cold.|
|Tony Stark:||Well, we haven't seen Mr. Sinister yet, but we might have learned something just as important.|
|Maria Hill:||Iso-8 is causing discord in the Savage Land... just like everywhere else.
Stegron wants to run it himself. The Lizard wants a piece of it too. Vulture's here testing Iso-8 compounds on the saurians... for a third party?
|Agent Coulson:||Could be. We've got our work cut out for us.|
|Ka-Zar:||Stark, my misgivings about Sauron were justified. He is gathering the Iso-Saurs and has found a means to control them.|
|Tony Stark:||Then we better pay him a visit next.|
|Ka-Zar:||I have done so. The results were... less than ideal, shall we say.|
|Agent Coulson:||So it looks like we're going to have to take the direct approach.|
Group Boss - High EvolutionaryEdit
|Tony Stark:||Stegron, Sauron, the Lizard, and Mr. Sinister... you'd think we have enough targets. But our real problem is the High Evolutionary.|
|Agent Coulson:||He's the one working his genetic hoodoo on some of the local fauna. That's the source of the conflict.|
|Maria Hill:||Forcing evolution forward in a controlled environment. This would be interesting if he wasn't so dangerous.|
|Tony Stark:||Maybe the most interesting thing about ol' Herbert Wyndham is he got started on his whole evolution kick courtesy of... anyone? Bueller?|
|Agent Coulson:||Well, that would be Mr. Sinister, wouldn't it?|
|Tony Stark:||You are correct! Which makes it mighty interesting that we came down here chasing Sinister and now we're seeing the High Evolutionary.|
|Maria Hill:||Let's put those pieces together.|
"The struggle for supremacy in the Savage Land has made for some strange bedfellows. Trace the lines back to the ring leaders."
— Mission Preview
|Maria Hill:||We're not done here yet. Sauron has gotten control of the Iso-Saurs. He'll use them as his private army to dominate the Savage Land.|
|Tony Stark:||Next thing you know, he'll be welcoming Sinister and Sugar Man back in, so they can turn the Savage Land into their own personal experimental lab.
Or worse, he'll put the rest of the local saurians under the High Evolutionary's control.
|Ka-Zar:||I will try to get to Sauron, but he will not be working alone.|
|Maria Hill:||We'll round up Iso-Saurs as we find them. Agent, let's get moving.|
We're finding abandoned bases in the area where we first encountered A.I.M.. Check them out and make sure there's nothing left behind that can fall into the wrong hands.
|Agent Coulson:||We need to be vigilant about letting stray Iso-8 or technical equipment get into the hands of people who don't know how to use it.|
|Agent Coulson:||The Lizard was here, and not too long ago. Stay on his trail. If he's still in the Savage Land, he's doing a good job of hiding it.|
We've recovered incomplete experiments from the A.I.M. lab Wolverine decommissioned. Put Beast to work analyzing it.
|Beast:||Inscrutable A.I.M. toys for me to decipher? I'm a kid in a candy store.|
|Beast:||Most of it's the usual A.I.M. gimcrackery: guns, force field projectors, typical weapons workshop flotsam.
But there are a couple of doodads here that look like they're meant for spatial disruption. Let me look into it more.
Here's another ruined structure with what might be a mother lode of new tech. Hank Pym might be the guy to sift through it and see what's of use.
|Tony Stark:||Hank, there's a strange ruin here that didn't show up on our initial satellite scans. There's definitely advanced tech, but we won't know the origin until someone takes a look.|
|Hank Pym:||I'm flattered you thought of me, Tony.|
|Tony Stark:||Well, Beast was busy. Have at it.|
|Hank Pym:||It's not A.I.M. or HYDRA. Doesn't look like the kind of genetic lab Sinister would put together, either.
My guess is it's an Incursion site that the Iso-Saurs got to before we found it.
I'm bringing back some items of particular interest.
It's been a while since we've seen Stegron. Reach out to some of the locals and see if anyone's had any interaction with him.
|Tony Stark:||There's no way Stegron just pulled up stakes and left. Maybe we can get some human intelligence about what he's up to.
Who wants to go?
|Tony Stark:||Stegron's a ghost. Interesting. He must be waiting to see what Sauron's going to do next.|
Luke Cage was training some of the Sun People in how to recognize and avoid Iso-8 when he saw something...
MiniBoss - Doctor OctopusEdit
|Tony Stark:||Doc Ock. Huh. What's he doing here?|
|Agent Coulson:||Couldn't be working for A.I.M., and I don't think Sauron would want him around. He must be freelancing.|
|Tony Stark:||He's probably still on his end-of-the-world kick and he's looking to burrow into the Savage Land and hide out until it's all over.|
|Nick Fury:||We can't count on him being that passive. Shanna, crash his party.|
|Shanna:||Agent, I'll wait for you.|
|You hunt me wherever I go! Don't you understand? Only Octavius can save us from what is coming?||Dr. Octopus:|
|Shanna:||You mean Incursions, or the Worthy? Either way, I don't think I like what you're doing to the Hauk'ka.|
|I am recreating them. Just as I recreated myself! It will happen to us all in time.||Dr. Octopus:|
|Shanna:||Not if I have anything to say about it.|
|You force me to take steps I would rather not take.||Dr. Octopus:|
|Shanna:||Like making deals with Sauron? Or A.I.M.?|
|Hardly. They are buffoons not worthy of my attention. Like you, and your S.H.I.E.L.D. protectors.
All I wish is to complete my work in peace! You may not survive what is coming, but I will--at any cost!
|You see? The Hauk'ka do not want you here. Nor do I. Leave me alone!||Dr. Octopus:|
|Shanna:||You didn't get my message last time. The Savage Land isn't your prepper bunker. Leave the Hauk'ka alone and get out.|
|Shanna:||Octavius cleared out. Everything in here is still unfinished. Looks like we caught him before he was ready.|
|Tony Stark:||Good. Things are complicated enough down here without him adding his own special brand of apocalyptic paranoia to the mix.|
|Agent Coulson:||Where did he go, though?|
|Shanna:||He won't be running to Sauron... or to A.I.M.... if he knows what's good for him, he won't stay in the Savage Land.|
MiniBoss - SavinEdit
|Maria Hill:||Savin? That accounts for the A.I.M. presence. Are they trying to run an Extremis project down here?|
|Tony Stark:||Fire-breathing Iso-Saurs? Not good.|
|Maria Hill:||Shut this one down, Agent. And keep an eye out for the Vulture. He was associating with A.I.M. a while back, and that may be why he's in the Savage Land to begin with.|
|Spider-Woman:||I'll drop in on this one, Agent. I've been patrolling that area and there are a few spots we should avoid.|
|Spider-Woman:||What's the play, Savin? You know Sauron's never going to allow a long-term human presence here.|
|You know A.I.M.. Better living through technology. We got a deal with Sauron; he leaves us alone, we share new toys...
And new Hauk'ka Iso-Saurs. Tell Stark we like that term.
And Sauron likes the results.
|Here come the Iso-Saurs...||Savin:|
|Hey, if you got a problem, take it up with Sauron.||Savin:|
|Spider-Woman:||Savin exploded and the lab is burning. It's like a fireworks show in here.|
|Maria Hill:||Get yourself out safely, and rescue as many of the captive Hauk'ka as you can.|
|Spider-Woman:||It's about time we took our grievances directly to Sauron, don't you think?|
|Maria Hill:||I do.|
Boss - SauronEdit
|Maria Hill:||We've caught Sauron here at this impact site. There's Iso-8 everywhere.|
|Tony Stark:||And Iso-Saurs.|
|Maria Hill:||Watch out for this one, Agent. His powers increase as he drains energy from others, and then that energy gets kicked right back in your face.|
|Tony Stark:||And let's not forget about the big toothy beak.|
|Our human protector. I am filled with joy.||Sauron:|
|Ka-Zar:||You are filled with greed and lust for power. Making deals with A.I.M.? How is that any better than standing by while companies like Roxxon plunder this land?|
|It is better because I say it is better! I speak for this land, from the Sun People to the Saurians! All who wish to live will answer to me!||Sauron:|
|Ka-Zar:||I say no. You do not speak for the Savage Land. With my last breath I will make sure of that.|
|Very well. I will make sure you take your last breath.||Sauron:|
|I will use A.I.M. to bring the Savage Land together under my control... and after this land, the entire world.
I will feed on what lives I choose, beginning with yours!
|Ruling the Savage Land requires a certain savagery. I do not apologize for that.||Sauron:|
|Mammalian persistence. Bah.||Sauron:|
|Ka-Zar:||I am saddened. There was a time when Sauron wanted to protect the Savage Land. Now he proposes an alliance with A.I.M.?|
|Nick Fury:||He's out of his league. He's fighting for control with Stegron, Sinister...|
|Tony Stark:||Is he fighting Sinister? They seemed to be getting along fine while they were picking the Brotherhood's bones.|
|Ka-Zar:||Now he is home in the Savage Land. Here he feels he should be in command. Either that or Iso-8 has pushed him off the deep end.|
|Tony Stark:||He's not the only one. I don't think anyone can spend a lot of time around it and not be affected.|
|Nick Fury:||What does that mean for us?|
|Tony Stark:||It means that for all we've learned about Iso-8, we still need to make sure we're controlling it instead of the other way around.|
|Nick Fury:||We can check one more saurian threat off the list.|
|Maria Hill:||We're not just creating a power vacuum, are we?|
|Tony Stark:||Oh, I don't think so. The Savage Land is big enough and varied enough that nobody can ever run the whole thing.
We're just making sure that outright maniacs aren't sitting on thrones.
|Agent Coulson:||Now, the next thing is to hunt down the A.I.M. presence. We've seen Vulture and Savin and enough A.I.M. firepower to know they're up to something here.|
|Maria Hill:||And we still haven't been able to keep the High Evolutionary in one place long enough to take him down.|
|Tony Stark:||Also, does anyone else feel like Mr. Sinister is playing things awfully coy? I do.|
|Nick Fury:||He won't wait forever. We've got a lot of work still to be done. Let's get to it, people.|
"As if coping with mutated natives, Incursions, and genetic manipulators wasn't enough, the Savage Land now faces a renewed A.I.M."
— Mission Preview
|Nick Fury:||Our operational focus is shifting from Sauron and Stegron to A.I.M. and Mr. Sinister.|
|Agent Coulson:||They're attracted to Incursion sites, and there have been a number of those here. We can't let them get a stable foothold.|
|Shanna:||We especially can't let them strike a deal with Sauron or Stegron.|
|Nick Fury:||First run down Sugar Man and see if he'll lead us to Mr. Sinister and the High Evolutionary. The rest of it will fall into place from there.|
The High Evolutionary is leaving his unfinished experimental subjects wandering all over the place. Let's round some of them up. Maybe we'll run into him in the process.
Drax the Destroyer has just encountered an incursion site. The incursion itself appears to have dissipated but a group of hostiles came out of it. Tell him to finish them off.
|Agent Coulson:||Drax. What's the status on that Incursion?|
|Drax:||It's gone. But something came through.|
|Agent Coulson:||Search and destroy. You need some backup?|
|Agent Coulson:||You're right. Sorry I asked.|
|Drax:||Looks like they were HYDRA. Were.|
|Agent Coulson:||Hold tight and guide a recovery team in.|
We've confirmed the presence of a genetic lab. Sinister's not there, but it's full of highly dangerous mutable life forms. Send a hero to destroy it from a safe distance before they spread.
There's a patch of... sentient plants, it looks like... at this location. We could fry them, but maybe it's better to send Groot. He'll be able to communicate with them and find out where they come from.
|Tony Stark:||Groot, we're looking at a weird group of ambulatory plants. Can you check it out and see if they're left over from an Origin Bomb?|
|Groot:||I am Groot.|
|Tony Stark:||Okay, good. Thanks.|
|Groot:||I am Groot.|
|Rocket Raccoon:||He means the plants appear to be a mutation, but not from an Origin Bomb. They're not hostile. But he did find an Iso-8 cache the Lizard left behind.|
|Tony Stark:||Good work. I mean, I am Groot. Does that work both ways?|
Tigra's in the field following up on A.I.M. intel from bases we've destroyed. Keep her out there and see if we've gotten them all.
|Maria Hill:||Tigra, how goes the A.I.M. base mapping?|
|Tigra:||Almost done. I think we got all of them, but there's uncertainty about one.|
|Maria Hill:||Okay. Keep looking.|
|Maria Hill:||Tigra. Status?|
|Tigra:||I've been all over the area, and I've matched A.I.M. records to destroyed bases... except one.
It's out here somewhere. I'll find it.
MiniBoss - Sugar ManEdit
|Tony Stark:||Ka-Zar, we've spotted Sugar Man. Have you seen him around here before?|
|Ka-Zar:||Not until very recently, when he was in the hills looking for Iso-8. I throw it into volcanoes when I see it.|
|Tony Stark:||You might want to stop that. No telling what it will do if it's vaporized.|
|Ka-Zar:||How do you know it vaporizes?|
|Tony Stark:||How do you know it doesn't?|
|Ka-Zar:||I know it is gone when I throw it into volcanoes. That is all I need to know.|
|Tony Stark:||Try that trick with Sugar Man. Maybe it'll work on him, too.|
|Get lost. We're only doing saurians right now. Don't worry, when we want you, we'll come find you.||Sugar Man:|
|Ka-Zar:||I cannot be lost in the Savage Land. This is my home, and you are trespassing. You get lost.|
|Not gonna happen.||Sugar Man:|
|Scared yet, wild man? You will be. I'm just getting started.||Sugar Man:|
|I got something special for you this time. And your kitty, too.||Sugar Man:|
|Ka-Zar:||Sugar Man shrank away.|
|Tony Stark:||Maybe a bug will eat him. Or some kind of little tiny saurian.|
|Agent Coulson:||We can hope. That's quite a cache of Iso-8 there, Ka-Zar. Can you hang tight until we get there to collect it?|
|Ka-Zar:||I would prefer you destroyed it.|
|Agent Coulson:||No can do. But we will get it out of the Savage Land.|
MiniBoss - Grey GargoyleEdit
|Tony Stark:||Grey Gargoyle's going after Iso-Saurs to add to A.I.M.'s collection. Shanna, this one's yours.|
|Shanna:||I will always defend those Savage Land creatures who are unable to defend themselves.|
|Tony Stark:||Well, the Iso-Saurs aren't so bad at defending themselves, as we've found out. But I get your point.|
|A.I.M. has plans for these creatures. But we can put human subjects to use as well, non?||Grey Gargoyle:|
|Shanna:||Despicable. No living thing is yours to torment.|
|Life is torment, Mademoiselle. I give it direction and purpose. Do not be naive. Your knives cannot harm me.||Grey Gargoyle:|
|Shanna:||I would be naive before I would be cruel. And I will test my blades against your skin of stone!|
|Perhaps I have underestimated you. Now you have my full attention.||Grey Gargoyle:|
|Shanna:||Then watch this.|
|You see? I have scratches only, while you... it is a shame to wound such beauty.||Grey Gargoyle:|
|I grow impatient with your animal crusade...||Grey Gargoyle:|
|Shanna:||Come by and pick up Grey Gargoyle, if you would. He's in no condition to walk.|
|Maria Hill:||On our way, Shanna. Let's keep zeroing in on Mr. Sinister and the High Evolutionary.|
|Agent Coulson:||We're well on our way to clearing A.I.M. out of here... at least as far as we can tell. But it's strange...|
|Maria Hill:||What's strange? This is the Savage Land. Everything's strange.|
|Agent Coulson:||Where's M.O.D.O.K.? If this is a serious A.I.M. op, he would be close enough to control it.|
Boss - Mr. Sinister/High EvolutionaryEdit
|Ka-Zar:||I have found the main Iso-Saur laboratory. The High Evolutionary and Mr. Sinister are both here!|
|Maria Hill:||We're bringing in backup, Ka-Zar. Do not engage them on your own.
Move, Agent. If we give these two any more time, they'll be creating new species faster than we can catch them.
|Tony Stark:||Or Sinister will splice some Iso-Saur DNA into himself, and come up with who knows what.|
|Ka-Zar:||Agent, it is up to us to prevent that. The Savage Land is depending on us.|
|Oh, dear me. Have I run afoul of the jungle steward and his pet cat?||Mr. Sinister:|
|Ka-Zar:||You have... and you will soon see that it is nothing to joke about.|
|I made no joke. What I did was employ sarcasm and derision. Your lack of education is showing, Mr. Plunder.||Mr. Sinister:|
|Ka-Zar:||I need no education to know the evils you create... nor do I need it to face you down and destroy them.|
|Theoretically true. Now let us see whether your theorem stands up to a test of proof.||Mr. Sinister:|
|Quite. Let us apply the standards of science, and see whether our Ka-Zar here is in need of improvement.||High Evolutionary:|
|He is a remarkable specimen, for one so... untouched.||High Evolutionary:|
|Ka-Zar:||If it's not broken, as the saying goes...|
|Oh, I still plan to break it. Then Sinister and I will fix it, as only we can.
This is our beginning... even if it turns out to be your end.
|Primitives. Stand aside for progress.||High Evolutionary:|
|Opportunity presents itself again. Now I will see what I can make of you and the tiger...||Mr. Sinister:|
|Ka-Zar:||The Iso-Saurs have run amok in this lab while I was fighting Sinister and Wyndham. I would have destroyed it, but now I do not have to.|
|Maria Hill:||We'll sift through the wreckage and see what we can learn. Where did they go?|
|Ka-Zar:||That I do not know. Wyndham had a device that screened their escape. They may even have teleported away somewhere.|
|Maria Hill:||Keep an eye out. There's no way they're going to abandon this project. Like the High Evolutionary said, the Savage Land is irresistible to someone with an itch for genetic tinkering.|
Epic Boss - M.O.D.O.K.Edit
|Tigra:||Coulson, you were wondering where M.O.D.O.K. was...?|
|Maria Hill:||We see him, Tigra. Looks like your recon sweep paid off.|
|Nick Fury:||Agent, M.O.D.O.K. has gathered together A.I.M.'s newest innovations and he's going to try to use them to control the energy of an Incursion.|
|Tony Stark:||We don't have to tell you that's a bad idea, right? Tigra's going to lead you in.|
|Tigra:||It's only fair. I'm the one who found him, after all.|
|Nick Fury:||We're all about fairness. As long as it gets results.|
|Tigra:||M.O.D.O.K., you're not going to get your techno-utopia if you blow the world up screwing around with an Incursion.|
|Feline woman, you know nothing of M.O.D.O.K.'s capabilities. You judge my mind? Pitiable.
Minions, destroy her! Do not anger me by forcing me to devote time to this. There is greater work to be done!
|This world dies. Only M.O.D.O.K. possesses the key for survival and conquest!
Your terminal failure approaches within two standard deviations of nine point eight zero two seconds. Starting...
|Feline woman, you underperform. But who can stand against M.O.D.O.K.?||M.O.D.O.K.:|
|Tigra:||It's a fine line between persistence and mania. You crossed it a long time ago.|
|Nick Fury:||Tigra, we're going to be sending in a team to comb through M.O.D.O.K.'s research lab. Just so you know they're coming.|
|Tigra:||Don't worry, Fury. I'll be long gone before they get here. The lab is your problem.|
|Shanna:||I'll keep an eye on things. He had Iso-Saurs pointing guns at me. I don't stand for that.|
|Maria Hill:||Let's get that team moving. The sooner we know what M.O.D.O.K. might have gotten away with, the better we'll be able to prepare.|
|Agent Coulson:||We cannot, under any circumstances, allow him to interfere with an Incursion.|
|Nick Fury:||Ka-Zar, we're counting on you here. We need someone on the team who's familiar with the Savage Land.|
|Maria Hill:||We agree on that. We'll need to stay in close contact. A.I.M. is already active here. The more people learn about the Iso-Saurs, the more we're going to have to police what goes on down here.|
|Shanna:||You'll find the Savage Land doesn't welcome outsiders, Agent Hill. Tread lightly.|
|Nick Fury:||Understood, Shanna. But we will have to tread.|
|Ka-Zar:||S.H.I.E.L.D. has proven a stalwart ally. Zabu and I will be proud to fight with you. After all, I can't let Shanna have all the fun.|
|Nick Fury:||Glad to hear it. Welcome to the team.|
|Ka-Zar:||I will remain here unless needed.|
|Shanna:||As will I. Sooner or later, Sauron and Stegron will band together out of necessity. We must be ready when that happens.|
|Tony Stark:||Understood. We'll be calling.|
|Nick Fury:||Back to the Helicarrier, Agent. About time we touched base with the Northern Hemisphere again.|
