Season 1 Chapter 2 Mission 2

Opening Dialog

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Just when we thought we could start to focus on Doom, here’s the Maggia again.

This time down by the Brooklyn Bridge.



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



Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
Pleased ta meetcha.



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


MiniBoss - Boomerang

Reveal

Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
I see Boomerang.

Hell of an arm that guy had.



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
He's still got it. Be careful.


Start

Ben Grimm. Still patrolling the old neighborhood? Boomerang:
Boomerang Icon.png



Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
Ya can take the boy out of Yancey Street...



You can take the boy out, all right.

Watch this.

Boomerang:
Boomerang Icon.png


Complete

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



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



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue.png
Yep.



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


Boss - Hydro-Man

Start

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



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



Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
Okay. Just curious.



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


Complete

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

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



Season 1 Chapter 4 Mission 1

MiniBoss - Abomination

Start

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



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



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



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


Repeat

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



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


Complete

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

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



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

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



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



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue.png
Not yet.


Boss - Ironclad

Reveal

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



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



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



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


Start

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



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



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



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


Repeat

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



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



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


Complete

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



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



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



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



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



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



Season 1 Chapter 5 Mission 3

MiniBoss - Piledriver

Reveal

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

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



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


Start

How do, Ben Grimm? Piledriver:
Piledriver Icon.png



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



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


Complete

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



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



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



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



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


MiniBoss - Bulldozer

Reveal

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



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


Start

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



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


Repeat

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



You mean rockpile or wuss? Bulldozer:
Bulldozer Icon.png



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


Complete

Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
Where did he go?



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



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue.png
Weird what?



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

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


Boss - Wrecker/Thunderball

Reveal

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



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



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


Start

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



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



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



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



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


Complete

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



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



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



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

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


Epic Boss - Loki

Start

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



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



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



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



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


Repeat

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



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



A very smart Thing! Loki:
Loki Icon.png


Complete

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

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



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



Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
Awright. Almost nothin'.



Season 1 Chapter 7 Mission 6

Deploy 3

Start

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

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



Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
You got it.


Complete

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



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



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



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



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



Season 1 Chapter 9 Mission 1

Deploy 1

Reveal

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

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



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


Start

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



Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
I got it.


Complete

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

Ben, thanks for the ride.



Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
Don't mention it.



Season 1 Chapter 10 Mission 5

Mission Start

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

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



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

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


MiniBoss - Vector

Reveal

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



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



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



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



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


Start

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



Too bad, rockpile. Vector:
Vector Icon.png



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


Repeat

Thing:
Thing Icon 1.png
Call me a rockpile again.



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



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


Complete

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



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


MiniBoss - Vapor

Reveal

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

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



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



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



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



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


Start

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



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



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



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


Repeat

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



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


Complete

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



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



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


Boss - Dr. Doom

Reveal

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



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

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

Dr. Doom:
Dr. Doom Icon.png


Start

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



He will join us in good time.

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

Dr. Doom:
Dr. Doom Icon.png



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



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



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


Repeat

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

What a fool I am.


Complete

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



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

Believe me, I know one when I see one.

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



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



Complete

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



Maria Hill:

Keep them away, Ben. We don't know what's in there. A cargo helicopter's on the way to pick it up.

Thing:

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



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



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



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

Thing:

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



Complete

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



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

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

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

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



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



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



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

Did I miss all the fun? Aw, man.

Actually, that's exactly what we were thinking.

Great minds...

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



Complete

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



Tony Stark:

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