: You cannot prevent what is written! Immortus
: Writers! Pfah! Kang
: It's just a typical Avengers adventure as far as ol' Hawkeye Hawkeye's concerned -- opponents everywhere, but no one's got a clue what's going on!
: We have been Kang glorious enemies in the past, and with fortune on our side we will be again. But now, I ask you-- do you stand with me? Do we stand against Immortus?
: Ah - - Yellowjacket
: Uh -- Songbird
: A-all right, Kang. For Wasp now…
: I was trained in the martial arts by the Libra priests of Pama and I am quite capable of defending myself!
: Wall, I was trained in combat by the older kids at the Hawkeye St. Ignatius Home for Orphaned Boys in Waverly, Iowa -- An' buster, they'd eat those priests of yours for breakfast!
: You know, Yellowback -- you're using the word " Hawkeye we" an awful lot for someone who didn't actually do anything…
: Yellowjacket Details, details.
: Welcome back to Rick Jones confusion central, folks. Hope you're not expecting any answers -- because frankly, I'm fresh out!
: How's a man supposed to trust his Captain America senses -- even his instincts -- in a place where nothing's dependable?
: We Giant-Man muddle through, Cap -- just like in the real world.
[Following a long, convoluted exposition covering a large part of the Avengers' history.]
: Well, I'm glad Hawkeye you understand it, tall socks. Alla this divergent stuff -- it's just givin' me a migraine.
: Kang Contained. I did not like the word. It made me think of cattle…animals to be bred and slaughtered at will.
: Yellowjacket! Wasp
: In the Yellowjacket flesh doll-face. Large as life, twice as cute, and runnin' around free while you're locked up.
: My first and greatest allegiance is to the Libra balance. My job is to serve the balance, and to let it play out as events dictate -- I've studied for years, trained -- all to achive a state of balance, to lose myself in it -- but the heck with it!
: And any machine can be Kang beaten. Any defense overcome.
Hawkeye: Nuts! If only I'd been able to stop that time-travelling crumb before he got away...
Captain America: Stand easy, Hawkeye. I'm sure there'll be other... times. External links Edit
