DialogueEdit

  • Nick Fury: All right, that should do it. Won't be any Latverian air support bothering us on our way to Castle Doom now. We'll take it on foot and bring Bravo team once we hit checkpoint three.

  • Wolverine: (mad at Iron Man after they used a fusion attack) That... hurt.
  • Iron Man: But it worked, No pain, no gain, my boy.
  • Wolverine: I ain't yer boy, Stark. (Nick Fury comes in)
  • Nick Fury: All right, that should do it. Won't be any Latverian air support bothering us on our way to Doom's Fortress now. We'll take it on foot and bring in Bravo team once we hit checkpoint three.
  • Spider-Man: 'On foot'? You're kidding, right? Do you have any idea how little arch support I get in this outfit?
  • Nick Fury: Put a sock in it, web-head.
  • Spider-Man: Yeah, socks make it worse, actually--
  • Nick Fury: All right, ladies... let's move, now! So much for them, Castle's straight ahead, barring a few twists 'n' turns. Move out. Black Widow should've left an intel drop for us nearby. Use your navigation system to locate it.

  • Black Widow: (On Communicator) July 11, 0800 hours. We've determined there is a massive power source operating within the city. Potent, but unstable. If you can take it out, you may find your hike to checkpoint four a lot less troublesome.
  • Nick Fury: You heard the lady. Let's find that power source. Bravo Team, come in. Widow, this is Fury. Come back, Over. The electricity source is a... church? Sheesh, talk about the power of prayer. Let's check it out.
  • Electro: Unnh...
  • Nick Fury: Good, the power's out - should make the rest of our trip a little easier. Might even clear up our radio communications. Let's head out through that back door. Bravo team, come in. Come in. Bravo, do you copy?
  • Wolverine: Hmph. Nothin' new to me so far. How'd Fury get you to--
  • Iron Man: Same way he go you to. I expect. Everyone owes that warhorse favors, and he always calls them in, sooner or later. Could be much worse than this.

  • Captain America: I've known Nick Fury a very long time, Spider-Man. We wouldn't be doing this without a good reason.

  • Nick Fury: As you know, the link to a foreign power makes this, by definition, international terrorism. The evidence is right here, sir. We're under attack. Trust me... they've earned what's coming to 'em. They must be jamming our signal from somewhere. We're gonna have to keep goin' it solo for now. Let's move. Awright... after this elevator it's almost a straight shot right to von Bardas's front door. They know we're comin'. Could get a bit hairer from ere on out. Let's just say I got a message for their Prime minister. Somethin' ya just can't say over the phone. Let's quit the jibber-jabber and get his job done already. Time to move out, ladies. Goin' up... Head left. This wall leads to the castle gates. Knock out those turrets! Otherwise they'll just keep poundin' us. Nice work. Now shut off that energy grid master switch. More super-villain turrets, huh? Let's get' em! Wizard's shielded. Focus on Scorcher!

  • Nick Fury: Damn. These doors are actuated to Wizard's gauntlets, but he's out cold. Maybe we can power'em up manually with some repulsor fire... Lucia, we're home.
  • Captain America: Great, here we go again!
  • Wolverine: Nick Fury, where's that Bravo team, you've been tryin' to reach?
  • Nick Fury: Communication's still jammed. Someone's gonna have to go round them up -- and you just volunteered.

  • (3rd cutscene, where Latverian soldiers are coming to attack Fury and the heroes)
  • Captain America: Great, here we go again!
  • Wolverine: Hey Fury, where's that Bravo team you've been tryin' to reach?
  • Nick Fury: (groans) Communication's still jammed. Someone's gonna have to go round them up -- and you just volunteered.
  • Wolverine: What, and leave all the fun to you girls? Bite me, Fury.
  • Nick Fury: No time to argue, shorty! Take Webs with you, locate Bravo team, and find another way into that castle! (runs away)
  • Wolverine: (to Spider-Man) You heard the man, webhead! Let's move!
  • Spider-Man: Yeah, yeah. Sheesh, no respect... (web-swings away with Wolverine)
  • Nick Fury: We're stuck out here, Bravo! Take down those shield projectors so we can get in!
  • Iron Man: They're bringing out the heavy hitters. Be careful up there.
  • Captain America: Good work, Bravo. That'll get us in.
  • Nick Fury: Bravo, we've located voice communications working but long-range is still jammed. We need Black Widow on the radio. Head to the security control room and get those jammers offline.

  • Nick Fury: Bravo, I still can't contact Widow. Head outside and disable those jammers manually. Hurry it up, Bravo! Remove the plating and break those jammers!
  • Iron Man: Getting a fix on Widow's signal now. Take out the other jammers and we can lock it in.
  • Black Widow: ...calling Fury. Black Widow calling-
  • Nick Fury: We read you, Widow. We're positioned to move on the throne room. Can you support Bravo? They've got a job to do.
  • Black Widow: (On Communicator) Roger that. Bravo, take that elevator down. I'll monitor you remotely.

  • Black Widow: Fury will handle Bardas, Head to the reactor room, it's time to bring this castle down

  • Black Widow': We've identified three heavy capacitors below you. Destroying their locks will allow us to set up a cascade explosion. We don't have all night. Break those capacitor locks! Good, you've primed the capacitors. Now head down to the reactor.

  • Black Widow: You should be at the reactor. Disengage the auxiliary shield batteries first.

  • Black Widow: Good work. That should allow you to break the reactor shield and gain direct access to the core.

  • Nick Fury: All units! Evacuate the castle now! Structural integrity is falling, and we're all about to get a whole lot flatter.
  • Black Widow: That did it! Now, RUN!
  • Iron Man: Welcome back to Stark Tower, our base of operations. As soon as you're ready, head over to the briefing station for our next mission. If you like, take a break to chat with your teammates.

  • Iron Man: Things have been pretty quiet around here lately. I suppose we should have known it was too good to last.
  • Captain America: Ms. Marvel has been investigating an international gun-running in the City.

  • Iron Man: Carol can definitely take care of herself, but we'll need to follow up on this, just in case. Let's start by investigating those tunnels.

  • Iron Man: Energy readings indicate force shielding in that area. Find and destroy its power supply to get through.

  • Iron Man: You're very close to a major power source. Take it offline.

  • Shocker: How much more of this you think you can take, "hero"? Now don't keep tellin' me you came in here alone. Where are the others? Huh?!
  • Ms. Marvel: Right behind you.
  • Shocker: Oh, c'mon, you really think-
  • Ms. Marvel: You going to let me down, or what? You won't get much further without me. Thanks. As you can probably tell, this op is a lot bigger than we thought. We need to figure out what these Latverians are up to. Appreciate the thought, but you have no idea where you're going. There's an old factory above these tunnels. If we destroy the weapons they've stockpiled there, it's bound to slow down their operation. Shocker must be trying to slow us down. What;'s he keeping us away from? That should lead up to the factory. You go ahead... I'm going to finish exploring these tunnels to look for additional intel. If you need any help. I'll be ready. You can deal Shocker later. Trash the Lateverian weapons first.

  • Ms. Marvel: You're making progress. Keep it up.

  • Ms. Marvel: You're almost done. There's one more stockpile nearby.

  • Ms. Marvel: That'll put a wrench in the works. Now find those villains.

  • Ms. Marvel: Go after Diamondback and Shocker. We have to find out what they're planning. There must be some way to break that floor. Look around. I'm detecting activity beneath you. Can you work together to get down there? Good thinking. Destroying their tech might help disrupt their operation.

  • Lucias: If only Nick Fury were with you to witness this firsthand.

  • Ms. Marvel: These cannons are hitting the city! Wreck them!

  • Captain America: You hear what they're saying about the mission Latberia?
  • Iron Man: Given a choice between Fury and the government, who are you going to trust?

  • Iron Man: You got that right.

  • Iron Man: What a mess is turning out to be. When you're ready, we can plan our next move at the briefing station.

  • Iron Man: Our worst fears seem to be coming to pass. Congress is debating a new bill, the Superhuman Registration Act. It would require all heroes to register with the government, whatever they want to or not.
  • Captain America: Which would mean the politicians get to tell us who the bad guys are. We need to make sure this thing doesn't happen.
  • Iron Man: To that end, we're heading down to Washington. I've been offered a chance to testify before a Congressional Subcommittee.
  • Captain America: And I'm going to rally the people down there. We need to get a grassroots resistance movement going before the SRA can gain any momentum.
  • Iron Man: We want you to come along in case there's any trouble. We've got a Quinjet wanting to fly us down there. Let's go. We're coming up on D.C, team, but the situation has radically changed during our flight. And not for the better. The city came under attack by an unknown terrorist force. We're going to coordinate defense efforts with S.H.I.E.L.D. Buckle up and be ready for everything.
  • Lieutenant Farrell: This is S.H.I.E.L.D. Lieutenant Farrell. We've got some of the Senators prepped for evac, but the zone's too hit to lift off. Eliminate the enemy forces in the area so we can get those people out. Eliminate the terrorists! We need to get the Senators to safety! The zone's secure - we'll get the choppers out. You should proceed down the hill, head'em off before they can hit us again. Well, you sure took your sweet time getting down there. Now lemme guess... this whole thing another Latverian counterattack, like in New York? You "heroes" step in it again?

  • Lieutenant Farrell: Yeah, and starvin' man'll eat just about anything. Look, why don't you costumed clowns head over to the Mall, see if anyone else wants your help. Approaching landing zone, ETA- Incoming SAM! 2 o'clock! We're hit! Still got some lift -- trying to put her down. Hang on--! Farrell here. We made it -- unnnh! --- but we're under attack! Can you assist? Damn, what a mess. I shouldn't've jumped the gun like that. That rocket came from the southwest. We need to take out whoever fired it before we can bring anyone else in. Those must be the guys who shot down our chopper. Take them out, now!
  • (During the terrorist attack of Washington DC, a firefight is taking place between a terrorist and a SHIELD agent)
  • Terrorist: You like, American? Here, have some more...
  • (Deadpool teleports in and knocks him out)
  • Deadpool: You stupid, vaguely-foreign freaks! You ruined my vacation! (the text showing 'Deadpool' appears, introducing him to the game's plot, he teleports to the SHIELD agent that was under fire and knocks him out as well) And you! Dumb-as-nails S.H.I.E.L.D. clones! I saw what you did to those cherry blossoms back there! You think those things grows on trees?! (he then turns to look at the player and adresses them) and YOU!... You think it makes me less of a man if I came here for the cherry blossom festival? Huh? (Teleports away and still looks at the player) YOU'RE LAUGHING WITH YOUR EYES! I CAN SEE IT!!! Fine, time for a little BOSS BATTLE, SUCKERS!!! Ouch! I knew I should've sprung for the health meter enlargement I saw in that e-mail. You're probably trying to clear out these terrorists, huh? Can I join the party?

  • Deadpool: Ehh, they'll still be here next month.

  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: Finally! Some back-up!

  • Maria Hill: I'll take things from here. Titanium Man seems to behind all this. He just made off with some senators and took them underground. We'll cover the Capitol. You get down to the subway and pursue that tri-plated Russian and his pals. Sorry, I didn't have time to say "pretty please with sugar on top." Now will you get along?

  • Deadpool: C'mon, that way! The subway! Hey, when we see Titanium Man, let's try to get him to say "moose and squirrel"! If I were a super-sized Russian bad guy, I'd head for some American chow. This way - to the food court!
  • Subway Police: You think you're gonna get away with this on my watch? Awright, the cavalry! Now you're in for it. Thanks. That big guy dragged Senator Lieber and the others toward Union Station. Keep going this way.
  • Deadpool: Say what you want about Titanium Man. At least the trains are still running on time.
  • Titanium Man: Da. Americans. Your precious "representative" is safe... for now. Do you have the courage to save him?
  • Deadpool: Now he's gone too far. Nobody attacks American's food courts! Supervillains, huh? Always in the last place you took.

  • Deadpool: Ooh, can we stop for a cool, refreshing beverage? Cashing product placement checks works up a mean thirst. When in D.C. be sure to visit our scenic National Park... ing garage. He's trying to escape with our elected representatives! Get your own, buddy!

  • Titanium Man: Take your craven, corrupt leaders back! I have no use for them now. Follow me, heroes, if you dare!

  • Senator Lieber: Senator Lieber, from New York state. Good to meet you. You've done us a great service. You heroes are okay in my book. Maybe we should put this registration business on hold.

  • Senator Lieber: Well, best of luck trying to catch that maniac. Like our state motto says "Excelisor!"
  • Deadpool: Don't I know you somewhere?
  • Senator Lieber: You don't look like the voting type.
  • Deadpool: Yeah, whatever. Hey, guys, I'll take these pencil-pushers back to the Capitol. Give me a call if you want to hang out again!
  • Titanium Man: Americans! Your deaths await you... here! You are once again a nation divided... only this time you will fall.
  • Wolverine: With a little help, if necessary.
  • Titanium Man: Your democratic levels will be your undoing once your own people turn against you! Do you really think it would be that easy? Dasvidania...
  • Maria Hill: (On Communicator) He's cloaking field is down! Get him!
  • Titanium Man: These mini-sentry will give you something to think about! The Registration Act will be passed by your cowardly leaders! And you will be criminals! Swarm them, my comrades! They cannot harm what they cannot see! When this done, no one will ever trust you "heroes" again! My suit -- malfunctioning? No! You... you think you've won. But you haven't. You'll soon see... you've already lost everything...

(A House Divided cut-scene)

  • Tony Stark: ...and so to answer your question, Mr. Senator, in spite of these recent events... ...I don't believe forcing super heroes to register with the government is the answer. This law would split the hero community right down in the middle, with consequences I'm not sure any of us want to ponder. (Tony leaves and goes into the limo with Captain America)
  • Captain America: Was that really your best shot?
  • Tony Stark: Sneaking around doesn't become you, Steve.
  • Captain America: Maybe I'll need the practice. Maybe we all will.
  • Tony Stark: Don't be so melodramatic. This whole thing would affect you least at all. You've already deputized.
  • Captain America: You almost sound like you agree with them. The Registration Act would tear down everything you've done, destroy a century-old tradition of-
  • Tony Stark: I'm trying to save it, Steve. As much of it as I can, anyway. Don't you see where is headed? All it's going to take is one more slip-up, by anyone in a cape, we'll be lucky if registration is the worst they do. They could just turn us all into criminals, hunt us all down--
  • Captain America: No, they won't, Tony...
  • Tony Stark: Not in my country.
  • TV Annoucer: Now return to our special LIVE episode of THE NEW WARRIORS, coming to you straight from Stamford, Connecticut... ...where the Warriors have just spotted by their super-villain quarry. Looks like it's on!
  • Speedball: I've got Coldheart, you guys! Hey, somebody snag Nitro, he's rabbiting!
  • Narmorita: Don't worry, Speedball. I'm on him. (Nitro is running on the road trying to escape until Namorita rams him into a school bus and stops him) On your feet, Nitro. And don't bother trying any of your stupid exploding tricks.
  • Nitro: Oh, baby, don't you even know? (chuckles) You're playing with the big boys now... (Nitro unleashes his exploding trick and destroys Stamford, then a flying bus crashes into a camera forcing the show to go offline and Tony walks away with anger)
  • Reporter 1: Reports now coming in from Stamford. Connecticut indicate a massive explosion in a residential neighborhood...
  • Reporter 2: Just now 12 hours ago now, and preliminary casualties are said to be over 600. In Washington, rumblings on whether super hero reform should be brought to the table--
  • Reporter 3: Following last week's devastating explosion. Congress has rushed through passage of the Superhuman Registration Act. With the President expected to sign the Act into law...
  • (S.H.E.I.L.D. Helicarrier, above New York City)
  • Captain America: This is just completely insane, Hill. I won't do it.
  • Maria Hill: I'm sorry, was it not clear I was giving you an order?
  • Captain America: You're asking me to arrest people who risk their lives for this country every day.
  • Maria Hill: No, I'm ordering you to obey the will of the American people, Captain. Either you help us bring them or we'll bring you in.
  • Captain America: Weapons down, gentlemen or I--
  • Maria Hill: Tranq darts! NOW!!
  • Captain America: Keep us moving, son. If you want to stay conscious.
  • Maria Hill: You idiot. We were trying to save lives.
  • (back at Washington, the President looks at people that are in a mob)
  • The President: All of the people to go underground... Captain America? Now every super hero who disagrees with the Act suddenly has a leader. Maybe we should hold off until--
  • Iron Man: That won't be necessary, Mr. President. Registration can go forward as planned. We'll take care of Captain America.

  • Maria Hill: Either you help us to bring them in or we'll bring you in.

  • Reporter: And with the passage of the Superhuman Registration Act earlier this week, super heroes around the country are being forced to choose a side. Do they register with the government to uphold the law, or become part of an underground resistance movement? So far--
  • Patriot: Can you believe this is really goin' down? The Act kicks in at midnight, but word is S.H.I.E.L.D.'s gonna be here sooner than that, taking signatures... or prisoners. I wanna talk to Cage about it, but he's too busy arguing with Mr. Fantastic over there. Maybe you can break into their little pow-wow and get some sense out of'em.

  • Sol Badguy: Are you sure you can get us to Sora without leading them right to him?
  • TJ Combo: Got it covered. You just stick with me.
  • Zero: But what about the rest? How can we convince-
  • TJ Combo: They're gonna have to make their own choice. Philip, Bentley and D.Va are obviously a lost cause. But maybe- Well, well... speak of the Devil. So, you folks made up your minds yet? From what I hear, they ain't gonna give you much more time to sit on the fence.

  • Deadpool: I can see your point.
  • Luke Cage: Glad to hear it. We're gonna need some real heres to get through this thing.
  • Deadpool: How long do you really think a resistance could last?
  • Luke Cage: With Cap in charge? AS long as it takes.
  • Deadpool: That simple, huh? Right.
  • Luke Cage: Simple, yeah. Easy? No. But I know Cap. He'll get us through. Anyway, think it over. But like I said, you better hurry up. Look, you got what you need to know. I got stuff to talk with over these guys.

  • Bishop: Hey. Have you come to a decision yet?

  • Bentley: --and so in a worst case scenario, we'd find ourselves in the equivalent of a super-powered Civil War.
  • D.Va: Heroes so busy fighting each other, the criminals get a free pass.
  • Bentley: Exactly. That's where you and the Defenders would come in, Hana. We'd need you to help S.H.I.E.L.D. keep crime under control while we focus on- Oh, hello again. Hello, Coco. I'm glad to see you're not going off half-cooked like Tyler, Frederick and Zero over there seem to be. We need cooler hands to prevail at time like this.

  • Mr. Fantastic: Now, please... I'm surprised to see you're even considering joining those rebels. Stay with us. We... I need you.

  • Mr. Fantastic: Hello, Johnny. I'm glad to see you're not going off half-cooked like Luke, Danny and Eli over there seem to be. We need cooler hands to prevail at time like this.

  • Mr. Fantastic: There's morality, and there's practicality. I may have personal issues with the Act, but I also have hard evidence that if we rebel against it, the entire world's future will be imperiled. So there's really only one sane choice here.

  • Mr. Fantastic: Well then, as relatives, shouldn't we be on the same side?

  • Mr. Fantastic: I'm not in charge of that, of course, but that's what I'm hearing. Not a pleasant thought. I wish I could spend more time with you, but unfortunately there's a lot to do. Talk to you soon.

  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: All superhumans: Registration Act is in effect. You are now require to meet with Commander Hill and register your identity with S.H.I.E.L.D.

  • Maria Hill: I'm glad to see you're willing to meet with me on civil terms.

  • Maria Hill: So, what's it going to be, heroes?

  • (After choosing the Pro-registration)
  • Carmelita Fox: Congratulations on making the right choice, heroes. The only one you really had. I'll look forward to working with you. (Zero breaks in with anger and shuns the heroes for choosing the Pro-registration)
  • Zero: NO! How could you?! Tyler told me I should've left with him and Sol, but I didn't believe you'd do this! You damn traitors!
  • Carmelita: Well, looks like your first assignment just walked through the door! Either convince that idiot to register, or take him down! (walks away)
  • Tracer: Look, Zero. I was on the fence for a while too. But, trust me, you'll look terrible in prison orange--
  • Scout: This ain't way ya fight this, kid. Settle down and--
  • Zero: (angrily) Shut up! There's nothing you can say to make me join you! (they start fighting) This is for Sora!
  • Mr. Fantastic: An unfortunate introduction to government service for you. I'm sorry it had to come to that. Cage and Iron Fist refused to sign and escaped. And they're apparently not alone. I'm just glad you made the correct decision. Let's head back into the main area. We're going to have our hands full, I expect, and I'm sure Tony will want to thank you personally once he gets back from Washington.
  • Iron Man: I don't need to tell you that you've made the right choice. You're here, and that means you understand the reality of the situation. You know what we're up against. We simply can't restore the public's faith in us while Captain America and his recruits are still playing by the old rules.
  • Mr. Fantastic: S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to expanded authority to keep super-villain activity in check. That leaves us wit responsibility for dealing with the rogue heroes.
  • Iron Man: We need to act decisively to end this fast. We have a few leads and may be close to identifying one or more locations being used as hideouts by the rebels. Come back here later. By then, we should have something more solid.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: Man, these new suits itch something' fierce.
  • Iron Man: I hate that it's come to this, but we have a job to do. We'll reconvene at the briefing station when you're ready. Hello, Reed.
  • Mr. Fantastic: Tony, I hope you don't blame this whole conflict on my psychohistory calculations.
  • Iron Man: Don't tell me there's a margin of error...! Your calculations showing where the country would end up if we didn't support the Registration Act were just a part of what went into my decision. Hello. What can I do for you?
  • Ice Man: You know what sounds like the worst idea ever? Picking a fight with Captain America and pals.
  • Iron Man: They've given us no choice. We've concerned the government enough as it is. If we all refused registration they'd take every one of us down. We'll do anything we can to avoid it. With any luck Cap will give up quickly, once we show him what he's up against. We'll do what we have to do to end this.
  • Bishop: Hi, Tony.
  • Iron Man: Hey, Bishop. Any promising leads on Anti-Reg force hideouts?
  • Bishop: Yeah, a few. You never know. For the time being, we're closely following some suspicious cargo into Jersey City. Maybe the fish will take the bait. Got it. Talk to you later. Hey, there.
  • Wolverine: So here we are, huh? Working with the government to hunt down people with special abilities. All we're missing are Sentinels.
  • Bishop: IF we don't police each other, the government will do it for us. Least this way we're on the inside. Course not. But we have to be willing to do whatever it'll take to avoid the kind of future I grew up in... where mutants are branded from birth and thrown into concentration camps. Yeah, I know... paved with good intentions and all that. It's a cute phrase, but you can't let it stop you from doing what you think is best.
  • Mr. Fantastic: Hello, Tony.
  • Iron Man: Reed, the government's still making noises about wanting a more secure containment facility for heroes who refuse to register.
  • Mr. Fantastic: Can't they handle that? We've got our hands full, wouldn't you say? Well, I appreciate that. And sleep is overacted, anyway. Are they still insisting they want something offshore, outside Geneva Convention influence? We'll have to keep a close watch on S.H.I.E.L.D., then. I'll build that into the design.
  • Maria Hill: What can I do for you, Stark?
  • Iron Man: I'm surprised to see you here. What do you want?
  • Maria Hill: I'm here to check on your progress in tracking down Captain America and his rebel friends. I don't know yet. And until you prove it. I'll be right behind you. I can see this is going to be a beautiful friendship. Yes? Can I help you?
  • Wolverine: People are responsible for their own actions. Cap's a big boy, and he made his choice. The wrong one. I might say the same to you. After Fury went into hiding, the government wanted someone with no personal connection to him to lead S.H.I.E.L.D. - a fresh start. My qualifications are none of your business. Let's just work together to finish the way quickly. I have work to do now. Good-bye.
  • Iron Man: Captain America's people are equipping themselves for a war. We need to cut off their supply lines before they can fortifly. We've been tracking some suspicious cargo entering the Jersey City shipywards... we believe it's headed for a hideout being set up by unregistered heroes.
  • Bishop: Our original hope was to catch Cap himself, but my money says Cable is behind this op. He must be establishing this facility to support Captain America wherever he's hiding. Expect strong resistance. Cap managed to turn a number of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to his cause... apparently they call themselves the White Star. In his honor. And I'm sure he's sent some of unregistered heroes in for support.
  • Iron Man: Bishop will be running this show on the ground. If we can shut down this operation, we'll send a powerful message to Captain America and his followers.
  • White Star Gunner: Move it! We've gotta get this cargo inside.
  • White Star Guerrilla: S.H.I.E.L.D. could be here any minute. Look sharp.
  • Bishop: Ok, we're all here -- now listen up. Black Widow's going to scout ahead and locate the rebel hideout. Meanwhile, we'll provide a distraction by destroying this shipment before they can unload it. We'll do that we have to do. These are good people we're going up against, but they're breaking the law. Now let's get a move on before they realize we're here.
  • White Star Gunner: It's a raid! Get to your positions!
  • Bishop: Get on the freighter and destroy that cargo! Y'see those robot parts? The White Star is hijacking S.H.I.E.L.D.'s combat units to boost their numbers.
  • White Star Guerrilla: They're after the cargo! Stop those government lackeys!
  • Bishop: Keep it up. Just a couple more. Good. Let's keep moving and meet up with Widow. Heh. Sounds like Widow left a little surprise for 'em. She must be nearby. Push forward. Widow will be around here somewhere.
  • Black Widow: Ah, there you are. Just in time to create the diversion I need. Their base is somewhere nearby. If you distract the guards, I'll find a way to get you in. Watch for me... I'll get you that entry point. See you on the other side.
  • Bishop: Heads up! They've got grenades!
  • Spider-Woman: Everyone, get inside! I'll close off the base!
  • Black Widow: Pursue Spider-Woman! I'll make sure she doesn't lock you out.
  • White Star Guerrilla: They're trapped! Get 'em! You're good! Go, go, go!
  • Spider-Woman: I've sealed the base. The only way through that door is through us. We don't need to beat you. Just delay you, to buy our friends some time. We're not backing down. If you go down this road, you're going to have to take on all of us.
  • White Star Guerrilla: Spider-Woman needs back up! Get 'em off her!
  • Bishop: That should hold her. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agents can take Spider-Woman in, but the base is still sealed.
  • Black Widow: Your entry point, as promised. This is an old HYDRA terrorist base. I recognize the layout. You can get around the blast door through here, but there will be another sealed door inside. You can try to break though if you want. But it'll take major firepower to destroy the inner barrier. I will bring Spider-Woman to the detention center. You head inside and find a way through that second blast door. Get inside! The rebels are fortifying their position while you waste time here.
  • Spider-Woman: I don't care what you do to me. I did the right thing. I expected more from you. They're turned you into superhuman thugs with badges. I've got nothing to say to you.
  • White Star Robot: It ends here, lackeys!
  • Bishop: There must be a switch somewhere for that door. Where'd that gunner go? That did it. Door should be open now. Stay together, keep 'em off-balance! We're getting close. Looks like there's a power station near here we can use to turn off that force field. You'll need to use those terminals to toggle the panels. Light up all four panels to reroute the power. Good work. Shield's coming down. Rockets from below! Watch out! Hold your ground! Don't let 'em swarm us! Destroy the power cells on the door frame. I think I know how we can get through. Break the power cells to the left and right on the door. Now the other side! Mmf... gonna feel that in the morning. All right, let's keep moving.
  • Black Widow: (On Communicator) Team, they're sending out a high-speed data stream. Get to the command center and shut it down. I've hacked some of their security. Break left! I've disabled the barrier there.
  • Cable: They're past to the blockade -- get those robots prepped, double-time!
  • Black Widow: There! I've opened a path to central command. Now if I could just link us into their comm channel...
  • Cable: Yes, Sanchez. I know your men are getting hit hard. But you've got to buy some more time!
  • Bishop: I knew Cable was running this show. Damn fool doesn't we can hear every word he says.
  • Cable: Hutchens, they're headed your way. Break out the big guns and slow'em down.
  • Bishop: Must be some way to open that door. Look for a switch. Those don't look like any factory options I've ever seen. This is as far as I go. I've got to keep the door open from here so you can't get through. Cable's uploading a lot of data. You have to reach him before he finishes transmitting that intel! Stay focused on our objective. Stop that upload, at any cost. Now get a move on! I'll be in touch via radio.
  • Cable: They just keep coming! Hold them off, I need more time to get this data sent to Cap!
  • Bishop: Huh? Cable's getting nervous. Push forward and shut him down!
  • Cable: What the--? One of the doors is jammed open! Damn HYDRA junk! I can't block them! Cycle the gas vents. Let's see if that chokes 'em up. They walked right into it -- now swarm 'em!
  • Bishop: Blocked? Hm, there should be a security switch in that area. Nice work, team. You should be able to access the rest of the base now. "Victor", they're headed your way. Don't let them get past you!
  • Hercules: Tny betrayal will be met with flame! Traitors! You shall not pass!
  • Bishop: Almost there, now! Be ready for anything!
  • Cable: Here they come! Get into position! Hold them back! Captain America needs his data! Captain, we're overrun here. I'm uploading everything I can. Now you thugs are gonna pay!
  • Bishop: Cable's shielded! Take out the wall turrets!
  • Cable: I was trying not to hurt you, buy you're giving me no choice.
  • Bishop: Quick! Get to Cable's computer console before the rest of the intel is transferred!
  • Captain America: (Hologram) Cable warned me we'd need to retreat this conflict like a war. You've certainly proved him right. Come on. You've invaded our space... you picked this fight. Maybe you think you're still heroes, but you aren't... not any more. And I won't forget what you did here today.
  • Iron Man: Your capture of Cable, Hercules and Spider-Woman a few weeks back seems to have put a serious crimp in Cap's plans. Thanks to all our hard work, more unregistered heroes and super-powered criminals are being rounded up every day. Of course, it's one thing to capture them, and quite another to make sure they stay that way.
  • Mr. Fantastic: As you may have heard our massive new holding facility in the Negative Zone is now up and running. Codenamed Prison 42. It's a clean, safe and totally secure detention center for unregistered superhumans. Access is possible only though a network of strictly-trans-dimensional portals, the first of which is situated deep in the Ryder's island prison.
  • Iron Man: We're still hoping this conflict can be resolved quickly, but in case that's not possible. Prison 42 will serve our cause well. We've built in multiple fallsafes to ensure that it's completely incapable. It should give unregistered heroes good reason to reconsider their position. So far so good, there's still plenty left to do. We'll meet at the briefing station when you want to get moving. Hello, Reed, what's up?
  • Mr. Fantastic: Tony, I believe we're ready our nanite villain field test, as long as you still feel strongly about pursing it.
  • Iron Man: Of course I do. Cap's getting more and more followers every day, while we're flat. We need to shore up our numbers. Now, sounds like you could use a break. Why don't you take Susan out to see a movie or something? I didn't mean that at all, Reed. But you've been working hard. Take a break when you get a chance, okay? If Reed's calculations are correct, there is virtually no chance of anyone breaking out of that place. Ever.
  • She Hulk: Hi, Tony, what's up?
  • Iron Man: Jennifer, I think your decision to defend Robbie Baldwin in court shows very poor judgement. We don't want to be associated with Speedball.
  • She Hulk: I realize sometimes it's hard for people who aren't lawyers to understand that we can separate our cases and our personal feelings. Then I guess that's why we have the court system.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: I'm thinkin' of transferring to CIA. Think I should?
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent 2: No way, She-Hulk is definitely hotter. You're crazy...
  • Black Widow: Hello, Matt.
  • Daredevil: I may always have doubts about supporting registration, but seeing you here sure makes them a lot quieter.
  • Black Widow: Very flatting, my love. But I'm surprised to hear you'd have any doubts. The law is the law, right? I admit I'm usually tasked with operating outside the law. When you think about it, my job has traditionally been to help governments maintain stability. This isn't all that different. Ever the public's defender, e, Matt? I'll always love you for that. Hello, Tony. What can I do for you?
  • Iron Man: I wanted to know if you had undercovered any evidence of Fury helping the Ant-Reg forces.
  • Black Widow: There's no indication of that so far. But with Fury, that might not mean much. I understand. But dealing wit big unknowns goes hand-in-hand with running a war. The bottom line, however, is that if Fury decides to help Captain America and his White Star allies, I doubt there's much he could offer them apart from strategic advice. I can see your point, We'll keep an eye out of anything that has Fury's fingerprints on it.
  • Songbird: Yes?
  • Mr. Fantastic: Melissa, the rest of the Thunderbolts are almost finished with the...procedure.
  • Songbird: That's fine. I recommend you talk to Bullseye first... this will probably be hardest on him. Frankly I don't care what happens to most of the Thunderbolts. This isn't the team I used to lead. How kind of you to remind me. You "heroes" are always so warm and compassionate.
  • Iron Man: Despite our recent victories, the Anti-Registration movement continues to grow. S.H.I.E.L.D. is too busy dealing with opportunistic super-villains to help us. So we've decided to bolster our ranks with some allies you might find... surprising. These are dozens of super-powered criminals now being held in Prison 42. Collectively, they represent a fromation fighting force. Our goal is to harness that potential to help us win this war. Reed?
  • Mr. Fantastic: We recovered some highly advanced nanotech from the Latverian attack on New York, and have found a way to use it to control the behavior of higher mammals including humans. We've injected nanites into the bloodstreams of the incarcerated super-felons. The nanites -- tiny machines as small as red blood cell -- situate themselves in the host's system. This forms an electric network that we can wirelessly tap into, allowing us to remotely monitor and control these unpredictable but powerful new allies.
  • Iron Man: In addition to the behavior control system, there is also a fallsafe. Using it, we can remotely render the host unconscious at any time.
  • Mr. Fantastic: The system has passed all preliminary trails, but now it's time for a field test under real-world conditions.
  • Iron Man: That's where you come in. A number of unregistered heroes are about to be transferred to their new homes in Prison 42. You will protect their convoy. And, once we feel the time right, we'll deploy one of our nanite-controlled agent to assist you. If he gets out of line... we'll take care of it. Delivering these prisoners and providing out the nanite control system are two important steps to ending this war once and for all.
  • White Star Gunner: Here they come! Take positions!
  • Black Widow: Strike Team Delta, take out the the rooftop fire teams and destroy their munitions so the convoy can advance.
  • White Star Gunner: Heads up! S.H.I.E.L.D. sent in their goon squad!
  • Convoy: We gotta get convoy morning, Widow, are we clear to proceed?
  • Black Widow: Negative. Transport Alpha. Hostiles are still on the rooftops.
  • Venom: What are you starring at? You act like you nev-- hhggkk.
  • Officer Swanson: Whoops. Sorry about that, Mr. Stark. Guess I forgot to lock down Venom's vocals. Anyway, my "buddy" and I are here to help. Widow figured we could give you folks a hand. We do, sir. I'll have him follow your lead.
  • Black Widow: Sorry to interrupt, Tony, but we've got more White Star inbound across the street. We need you to deal with them. Delta, there are more munitions in that area. Destroy them.
  • Prodigy: Well, look who's here! The "real" heroes. You know, like I used to be? Until I refused to sign a piece of paper? I mean, look at you! Do you even see yourselves? You're standing there with Venom, and you're the good guys? You've lost it. I can't believe I used to respect you.
  • Black Widow: So much for the prodigal son. Now head toward the High Lane. There are a few more White Star troops making trouble for the convoy.
  • Officer Swanson: So far, so good. Just one more test -- this'll be fun. Stand back... we're going to check the failsafe system. Shutdown signal worked like a charm... he's in perfect stasis. Okay, I'm gonna bring him back online. Mr. Stark, Hank Pym is requesting that we bring Venom back to HQ. Everything's nominal, but he's detecting some unexpected signal traffic. Probably nothing.
  • Iron Man: So, what's going on? What did Harry see? What's happening with the nanite-controlled agents?
  • Officer Swanson: I'm sure he did, sir. It's just some side-signals we didn't expect to see. We'll be back once they give the all-clear. Admit it, you'll miss having this pretty face around.
  • Black Widow: Delta, we still need you on the High Line. Use that cane to-- look out! Rough landing there, huh? No matter, you ended up in the right place. We need you to clear the High Line of all enemy forces before the convoy can pass through the intersection. Hurry up and clear the High Line! We can't risk this delay much longer. Convoy, this is Widow. The High Line is clear. Move out. Blast it, how did White Star get through? Delta Team, hit the street! We'll take care of their chopper. Those heavy 'bots are hitting the transports! Destroy them! Damn. Patriot managed to escape containment. Tough little kid... Good. That's one for the junk heap. Air support will be delayed -- we're talking about rooftop fire! Keep it up, Delta. They must be running out of 'bots. One more 'bot in your vicinity, Delta.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: Incoming! Widow, as long as their bird airborne, they'll keep dropping in.
  • Black Widow: Roger that. I've almost got him in my sights... Direct hit on the gunship! He's going down -- uh oh -- he's going to hit that transport! Oh, for - heads up, Delta Team... looks like Multiple Man is on the loose. Take him down before he swarm us! Okay, looks clear from up here. See if you can get that empty transport out of our path.
  • Captain Quark: What the Sam Hill you think you're doing, Soldier 76? Besides tearing my home turf! "Peacefully", huh? So much for that! Nothin' good can some of all this, Jack, and what's happening here just proves it. Smart choice. So where do -
  • Black Widow: Heads up, Delta!
  • Thing: That's it! These bums just bought themselves a Grade-A cobberin' from Yours Truly!
  • Black Widow: More Multiple Man duplicates! Transports are prepped, Delta. We're good to go once you clear the area.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: Roger that, just loading them in the new transport now.
  • Convoy: 10-4 Alternate route Charlie now cleared through 40th street. Good to go.
  • Thing: Sheesh. You were right about them White Star guys, Stretcho... seems like they'll stop at nothin'. All I know is, they sure ain't like heroes. So, I guess you can count on me, Reed. I'm gonna stay here and make sure the clean-up goes nice an' smooth. Call me later if you need my help.
  • Black Widow: Okay, Delta Team, back up to the rooftops to continue your sweeps. We may not be out of the woods yet.
  • Thing: When did everything get so dad-blamed complicated?
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: What's the deal with the second transport?
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent 2: Got me.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: Black Widow, are you in contact with Transport Beta? We got some unusual behavior here.
  • Black Widow: Negative, they're not responding to our signal. We've got a visual -- wait! We have prisoners escaping from Transport Beta! Repeat, prisoners escaping on foot! Looks like Cap himself broke them out. All units, close in! They're headed up to the rooftops! Delta Team, you're in position to cut them off! Move, move! Swanson, we need support! Can you deploy a nanite operative?
  • Officer Swanson: Dr. Pym just gave us all-clear, Widow. I'll try to get Molten Man into position.
  • Black Widow: They're crossing the sky bridge... heading right toward you. Cut them off!
  • Sora: Did you honestly think we'd let you waltz right through midtown with our people locked up? Sorry, but you were wrong. In a very big way.
  • Joanna Dark: Don't let them get away--!
  • Goliath: Better worry about yourselves first.
  • Black Widow: What the -- Goliath?! You have to take him out! The other transports will never get past him. Attack quickly when you can. Stay clear of his hands! That building's not stable. Duck into that door! Swanson, what's that support?
  • Officer Swanson: Coming up, Widow. Need a light?
  • Goliath: Like shooting fish in a barrel. Ha! You guys like little action figures down there.
  • Black Widow: Wear him down before you try a heavy attack.
  • Officer Swanson: You know what they say: the bigger they are -
  • Black Widow: That's quite enough, Swanson. Well done, Delta Team. All transports, you're clear to proceed. We lost some prisoners, but Captain America lost Goliath. I'd say that's fair trade.
  • Iron Man: The nanite-controlled criminals we enlisted have made a huge difference in our struggle to both fight crime and deal with the unregistered heroes. We now have dozens of these agents in Prison 42, ready to support us at a moment's notice. The tide may be turning in our favor, but the longer this conflict drags on, the greater the chance of devastating repercussions. We intend to find a way to end this thing as quickly and clearly as possible. Giben what you've done for our side so far, we know you'll a big part of that solution. We're working on a plan to bring the Ant-Reg forces to us. Come to the briefing station when you're prepared to join in.
  • Ratchet: Hello, Tal. Something you wanted to talk about?
  • Talwyn: Ratchy, this system you invented to control those criminals... are you sure it's a good idea?
  • Ratchet: I know it's a bit... unsavory. But nothing is more important than ending this conflict quickly. Any interesting to put it. I'll keep it in mind...
  • Iron Man: Hello. Something you wanted to talk about? I wish Although we've had a string of successes, there are still plenty of renegade heroes out there, including Cap. And time on their side. Huh? Oh. I'm sorry. We don't have time for cheerleading. According to Reed's calculations, the longer this war drags on, the closer the world moves toward disaster.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: They expect us to fight these kinds of criminals, we need bigger guns.
  • Iron Man: The super-powered Civil War has gone on for too long. It's time to finish it. And with any luck, we can do it without firing a shot. We're going to lure the Anti-Reg forces to an underpopulated location by faking a major disaster. Once they arrive, we'll cut off any and avenues of escape. Then we'll be in a position to offer them one last chance to lay down their arms and register. If they refuse, we'll still have them trapped with nowhere to run. You'll help guard the perimeter. If thins get ugly, make sure Cap and his crew don't escape.
  • Sora: How many trapped workers did the radio say?
  • Hanzo: Over three hundred -- but something's weird. I'm not getting anything with my info-net. No panic signals, nothing...
  • TJ Combo: What's wrong, Hanzo?
  • Hanzo: Cyrax, get us out of here! It's a trap!
  • PhilTastic: Of course It's a trap. How else were we going to get you all in one place? Skybird One, is the area fully cordoned?
  • Carmelita Fox: Roger, perimeter, sealed. No one's leaving the zone without our say-so.
  • PhilTastic: Copy that. Stand by.
  • Sora: "Stand by?" You and S.H.I.E.L.D. going soft, Phil?
  • PhilTastic: We didn't come to arrest you, Sora. I talked S.H.I.E.L.D. into offering all of you a chance at amnesty.
  • Sora: You mean surrender? Thanks, but I think I'd rather take my chances.
  • PhilTastic: Sora, please... you know how hard I tried to fight this... but that was before Stamford. The public doesn't want secret identities anymore. Registration is the only way to make them feel safe when we're around. Just give me a chance to tell you our plans for my twenty-first century overhaul.
  • Sora: You've got five minutes.
  • PhilTastic: That's all I need. What the hell?
  • Maria Hill: Delta Squad, we need you to apprehend some of Cap's people. We've got agents pursuing Multiple Man in the vicinity. Move forward and assist them. What the --?! We're seeing White Star troops all over the place! No idea how they got into the zone. Watch yourselves, people! You're approaching Multiple Man's position, Delta. Make sure we get ALL of him this time. That's one rebel down, more or less. We've sighted others moving your way. Push forward and cut them off. Rhodes, check your fire! Delta, break right. You'll have to open a path to proceed. Delta. Stark's people report those values are sealed. You'll have to tear them open to drain the tank.
  • Patriot: You like ambushes, huh? Then you're gonna love this!
  • Maria Hill: Good job handling those kids, Delta. You've got more unregistered combatants ahead. We'll send a nanite agent to support you.
  • Officer Swanson: Osborn's free and clear. Sending him and support Delta.
  • Maria Hill: War Machine, we might have a visual on Cap. Sending coordinates. Please investigate. Delta, we've spotted two more insurgents on top of a mixing tower near you. Head up there and deal with them.
  • Brigitte: Papa! They're here!
  • Torbjorn: So... we show up to help people in trouble -but you come to haul us to your Negative Zone Gulag. Fine. You've chosen your battlefield. But you won't be choosing the result.
  • Carmelita: Excellent work, Delta. Now sit tight while I check in with Ralph and Vanellope. R & V, Delta Squad is ready to assist you in taking down, Sora.
  • Vanellope: Roger that. We're pursuing him now.
  • Carmelita: (On Radio) Delta, get a move on, I want that Key-swinging-traitor's head on a plate!
  • Ralph: I'm down! Sora got me with one those damn joy buzzers.
  • Iron Man: Power down and perform a clean reboot, Rhodey. I should be back online in a couple minutes.
  • Maria Hill: Looks like you're on point, Delta. Pursue Captain America!
  • Captain America: Think you've got us trapped? Think again! This is the part were you wish you hadn't caught me. Everything ready?
  • Luke Cage: All set, Cap. We've prepped your exit. Let's take this outside.
  • Iron Man: My suit is parasitically functional, Delta. I'm moving to your location. Keep him busy.
  • Luke Cage: Hey, catch!
  • Sora: Combo, stay up there for now. Back me up, Sol. This shouldn't take long.
  • Maria Hill: Iron Fist is the primary target! He can use his powers to heal Cap.
  • Captain America: Luke! Turn up the heat! Cage, get that door open now!
  • Luke Cage: You got it!
  • Philip: There we go. Can't keep a good suit of armor down. Don't, Sora. Just stay where you are. We'll get you and TJ some medical attention.
  • Sora: How generous of you. You'll make a just and fair - what? S.H.I.E.L.D. Commander? President?
  • Iron Man: You must be kidding. You think that's what this is all about?
  • Captain America: Oh, wait, that's right. They don't elect drunks to the White House.
  • Iron Man: Don't go there.
  • Captain America: Maybe you'll able to settle for just being drunk with power. Huh, Tony?
  • Iron Man: Dammit! Skybird One, this is Stark. Cap got away again. I'm going after him.
  • Maria Hill: Roger. Delta Team backing you up?
  • Iron Man: Negative. I'm doing this alone.
  • Maria Hill: Okay, Delta. The nanite agents' control grid apparently just spiked off the scale for a second. They're telling me it's fine, but why don't you go make sure.
  • Nick Fury: You there! I need yer help! Something big's going down. Those villains Stark's been controlling have gone off the leash. They've set up a trap on the core tanks that could blow everyone here to kingdom come.
  • Wolverine: Fine, let's see it, Fury. Cap got to you, huh?
  • Nick Fury: I was trying to keep people safe. If you still care about that, follow me and see for yourself. C'mon, we need to head to the central facility of the plant. I'll stabilize the bombs and toss 'em to you, then you dispose of 'em. Oh, and keep those two bust, would ya?
  • Wolverine: Lead the way, Fury. But if you're screwin' us over again, there'll be hell to pay.
  • Nick Fury: Look, they're up to somethin'. We'll have to sort out the details later. Goblin's headed your way. I can get at the bombs now. Use that vent to get rid of the bombs! Heads up! Grab the thing and get rid of it! Toes that bomb into the central vent! It'll be safe enough. Come on! Stupid thing. Here's another one! Number three's almost clear! Got it! It's all yours. Break through that webbing! It's blocking the vent! Damn - this one's tricky.
  • Wolverine: Leavin? I got a bad feeling about this...
  • Nick Fury: Well, well, well... look who's back in the land of the livin'.

  • Nick Fury: You're in a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. base that only I know about. Hm, well, I guess now you know about it, too. You guys did a good job of buyin' me time to defuse those bombs. I got most of 'em... ...but not all. Neither side is gettin' too specific, but a good number of those heroes got pretty badly hurt in the explosions. No one saw that those mind-controlled freaks were tryin' to do, or that we tried to stop 'em. So it was up to me to save you. While you healed up, I tried to warn Stark about what had really happened. --ah, c'mon, Tony. I'm telling you, those "mind-controlled" criminals of yours were completely out of control. They're the ones who rigged the explosions. I tried to-
  • Iron Man: (Hologram) And I'm telling you it's impossible. Our records show the villains were accounted for the entire time-
  • Nick Fury: Someone hijacked'em. I saw it myself.
  • Iron Man: (Hologram) I don't know what your angle is this time, old man, and frankly I don't care. I've got a war to win. Either help me do that, or get out of the way. (Calls off)
  • Nick Fury: Things didn't go much better with ol' wingtips, either.
  • Captain America: (Hologram) Sorry, Fury. You've got no evidence, and I need more than your word these days. Besides, if Stark's attack dogs really are turning on him and S.H.I.E.L.D., so much the better. Serves them right. (Calls off)
  • Nick Fury: They can deny it all they want, but something big is goin' down. Maybe even bigger tan this 'Civil War' you're all havin so much fun with. Someone out there is tryin' to take advantage of the situation. Maybe by now I could've figured out who, if I hadn't been too busy playin' nursemaid to you grunts. You owe me. And since you're all presumed dead by both sides, you're the perfect little group to check out this war - at least for a bit - to help me figure this thing out. You with me?
  • Wolverine: Awright, Fury. We're in.
  • Nick Fury: Remember, we've the only ones ready to figure out who's behind this. Meet me at the briefing station when you're ready for action.
  • Thing: Hey there, Suzie.
  • Invisible Woman: I hope we're doing the right thing trusting Fury again.
  • Thing: If Reed and his pal, Stark weren't bein' so stubborn, we wouldn't have to.
  • Invisible Woman: Do you hear that it could be Dr. Doom who's hijacking the nanite villains? Reed can only go by the data, so he says. I can't even believe that's the same man I married.
  • Thing: He ain't himself. I can see that too. He ain't thinkin' straight. I mean, you set up a system to control people's minds, and where can that lead? Nowhere good, Suzie.
  • Invisible Woman: I wish we could just be the plain old Fantastic Four again.
  • Thing: Whoa! Better him than me! Yo, flamebrain. What's up?
  • Human Torch: Can you believe we're stuck trusting Fury again?
  • Thing: If Reed and his pal, Stark weren't bein' so stubborn, we wouldn't have to. Yeah, or any of them other world domination freaks. Who knows? And that's my whole problem with Reed right now. I mean, you set up a system to control people's minds, and where can that lead? Nowhere good, matchstick.
  • Human Torch: I wish we could be the plain old Fantastic Four again.
  • Thing: You an' me both, kid. Hey, how's it goin'?
  • Juggernaut: Pretty funny how you skipped out on your friends. Still sure you did the right thing?
  • Thing: Sure, I'm sure. I didn't want no part of it to start with. I eventually got roped into choosin' a side, but I shoulda stuck with my gut. I ain't sayin' that. But fightin' other heroes, and old friends? I hope that stuff is gonna stay in the rearview mirror. I wouldn't be here if I didn't. I know the guy can be a bit shady, but his heart's always in the right place. He, he didn't have no super powers. Guy'd probably be dead a hundred times over without them things. Awright, I'm all talked out. See ya later.
  • Nick Fury: Hey, there. What's up?
  • Juggernaut: So do you have secret plan to crack this?
  • Nick Fury: I got connections. Or maybe you didn't notice our old pal the Tinkerer hangin' around here? You got it. Plus he invented the nanotech that Stark and Richards modified for their use. If the Tinkerer can't help us solve this, no one can.
  • Juggernaut: So do you have secret plan to crack this? Any idea what Rogers and Stark are up to now?
  • Nick Fury: Probably lickin' their wounds and getting' ready for Round Two... and Round Three, and Four. Not sure what it would take to get their minds off this Civil War.
  • Juggernaut: You think you can make 'em listen?
  • Nick Fury: Depends on what we find. If it's some two-bit hacker operation, we can shut 'em down ourselves. But I think it's a big-name bad guy, and if so, we might need some support. Gotta run. Talk to ya later.
  • Tinkerer: What do you want? I'm busy.
  • Wolverine: Explain how I'm supposed to trust your wrinkled hide. So which of your criminal buddies you think is behind this?
  • Tinkerer: You can't apart from knowing that your friend Colonel Fury can be very... persuasive. I am at your disposal until this mystery is solved. Ah, threats. The ideal way to motivate a great mind, eh? Assuming it's not an inside job, our primary suspects include Mr. Sinister, Baron Zemo and Dr. Doom.
  • Wolverine: Zemo? He doesn't have the chops for this.
  • Tinkerer: He is a scientific genius and is incredibly resourceful. His quest for power could take him in any number of directions. Now please... I must return to my work. Good-bye.
  • Nick Fury: Awight, listen up, Tinkerer here's been tryin' to figure out who might be pullin' the stings of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s nanite criminals when no one's lookin'.
  • Tinkerer: Since I had some... involvement... in the original nanotechnology S.H.I.E.L.D. has converted for their use, I was optimistic that I could puzzle out the situation with the data already available. However, that has not proven to be the case. I have nothing more than conjecture at this point. In order to determine what's really happening, I will need to view the networking logs for S.H.I.E.L.D.'s nanite control grid. Unfortunately their signal is highly encrypted. It could take years to break their code and directly their servers.
  • Nick Fury: We don't have time for that, obviously. The shorter and quicker route is to physically transmit that data directly from their servers, which we've discovered are located in Ryker's Island penitentiary. So that's where you're headed. Now don't worry, I know tryin' to burst into that place on your own would be near impossible, since it also contains the portal to Stark's Negative Zone prison. But we got information that Captain America and his forces are about to stage a prison break to release their buddies from the Negative Zone. They'll have to smash through Ryker's to get there. We'll take advantage by having you piggybank on their incurison. While they're driving toward the portal, you'll follow in their wake and get that data sent to us. Then we can figure out who the hell's grabbing control of these psychos, and why. S.H.I.E.L.D. should have their hands full, but I'll patch you into their comm channel so you won't get any nasty surprises. Now get to the portal room and upload those network logs.
  • Maria Hill: Attention S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel -- this is Commander Hill. Any superhumans not accompained by Iron Man should be detained, by any means necessary.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: More capes? You heard Hill's order - take 'em down!
  • Maria Hill: S.H.I.E.L.D. forces, we've got rogue superheroes running loose in the west cellblock. Contain them!
  • Nick Fury: Cap's strike team has already crossed into the Negative Zone. That means you're the only targets Hill's got left on this side.
  • Maria Hill: Stand down, 'heroes'. You might have helped us down before, but I can't be sure who you're working for now. No can do. Bring them down! Iron Man has secured the Negative Zone portal. Fall back to the courtyard!
  • Iron Man: Penance, stay here and guard this door. No one gets through, understand? And keep an eye on these nanite-controlled prisoners.
  • Penance: Okay.
  • Nick Fury: The computer with the data we need is in that holding chamber, but the area's sealed. You'll have to get the access card from Hill.
  • Maria Hill: Whether you're with White Star or not, you're breaking the law, and will be dealt with accordingly. Dammit, they're like fish in a barrel! Cut them down!
  • Nick Fury: The force field is powered by the towers. Target those turrets!
  • Maria Hill: Reinforcements en route. Don't let them break the last force field! Keep them away from the force field generators! Stay on them!
  • Nick Fury: She's goin' for her chopper!
  • Maria Hill: Fine, take the key. Go help Captain America or whatever you think you need to do. But there's an army on the other side of that portal waiting to stop you. I'll enjoy interrogating you when this is all over.
  • Nick Fury: Ain't she a sweetheart? Now go get that data.
  • Maria Hill: Anyone who's standing get to the portal! Rogue supers just stole my access key. Cut them off!
  • Penance: Don't worry, Hill. I'll stop 'em.
  • Computer Voice: S.H.I.E.L.D. level Ten clearance accepted. Security, teleport-scrambling and monitoring disabled.
  • Penance: Not so fast. I've got my orders. Now here's one for you get the hell out! Ypu won't get past me... you WON'T! Oh, man, they're all loose!
  • Nick Fury: Use that networking monitor station to send their logs to us for analysis. We got the transmission, and Tinkerer's done a quick analysis on the data. Doesn't look good.
  • Tinkerer: We were concerned that an unknown megalomaniac might be overriding S.H.I.E.L.D.'s nanite control signals, with intentions unknown. However, the truth is much stranger, and potentially much more troubling. There is no secret mastermind pulling the strings of these criminals. The network that links their minds has become large and complex enough to emerge as its own intelligence: a neural net whose intellect grows each time they inject another host with the nanites.
  • Nick Fury: The only reason this thing hasn't already spread like wildfire is because S.H.I.E.L.D. lets just a few of 'em out at a time.
  • Tinkerer: Correct. If the entire group were released from lockdown, they could escape Prison 42 and quickly spread across the Earth like a techno-plague. Everyone would eventually become part of its collective consciousness.
  • Nick Fury: We already saw that they could override S.H.I.E.L.D. control Wouldn't there be any way to stop 'em?
  • Tinkerer: To determine that, I would need a pure, untainted sample of the nanite material... one that hasn't yet been injected into a host.
  • Nick Fury: Okay. They must have some of that in their Negative Zone jailhouse. And we won't get a better chance to had in there and grab some of that stuff than right now, while the heroes are still beatin' the crap out of each other. I'm gonna have to do this the old-fashioned way. Sit tight till I arrive to help you out. Ugh. Teleporting makes my skin crawl. But you'll need my help, and I can't send a decoy into the Negative Zone. Signal won't cross over. I expect Cap and Iron Man will still be butting heads in there. Let's move while they're distracted. This is the best shot we're gonna get to break into that person... we gotta take it. Otherwise nobody'll be sitting on an antidote that could save humanity from this thing.
  • Penance: Hnnh. And I thought everyone was too busy fighting each other to watch out for innocents. Let me help. I can activate the portal for you.
  • Nick Fury: Thanks, Robbie.
  • Penance: Go on through. I'll be ready to help you anytime.
  • Nick Fury: It's a lot easier gettin' into this place than gettin' out. I'll head to the portal control room to make sure this gate's open for us when it's time to book. The nanite labs are a few levels below us. Head down and grab us that pure sample. I'll meet you back here. Yeah, and I was kickin' butt back when your mama was wipin' yours. I can handle myself. I'll let you know when I reach the control room. Form there I should be ale to help clear your way. Now get going.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: What the hell -- ? Stark said the portal was secure!
  • Officer Swanson: Lab personnel, this is Nanite Control. Detain those rogue heroes! We're going to bring another nanite agent online to assist you.
  • Nick Fury: Sounds like they're prepping everyone for nanite injection.Try to stop 'em before they use up that sample we're after. Awright, I'm in portal control. Security's pretty light up here... everyone must be focused on the main fight. Lemme see if I can open a path for ya. There, got it. Hurry up and get that sample.
  • Officer Swanson: I don't care if he hasn't been fully prepped. We need Equinox online to defend the labs. Start the procedure! Stay back... I'm gonna skip the startup protocol and take direct control ASAP. Should have this freak on the leash any second. Done! I never liked working with these "heroes" anyway. Time to put 'em on ice!
  • Nick Fury: Damn. He's been injected with the pure sample. I'll find you another one. Found it. Head to the other side of the labs. You can grab a pure sample there.
  • Officer Swanson: Now! Overload the decontamination field!
  • Nick Fury: I can't disable that thing remotely. Find a way around, see if you can shut it off. That cleared your way. You can head for the sample now.
  • Nick Fury: You'll have to stop those capes yourselves! We can't get another nanite agent online in time! Finally. Grab the pure sample from that machine. Good work, team You should be clear to head back to the portal. No one's gonna stop ya... they're all too busy partyin' it up in the cell blocks...
  • TJ Combo: We'll never reach the jail cells at the rate!
  • Sora: Are those the conduits we saw the schematics?
  • TJ Combo: Yeah -- the only exposed power cables for both the main systems and the back-ups.
  • Sora: Those get out, and the cells open up? Including S.W.O.R.D's remote control super criminals?
  • TJ Combo: You got it. But the released prisoners might give S.W.O.R.D more than they can handle - least for a few minutes. Could help cover our escape.
  • Philip: Never thought the cavalry would look quite like that... but I'll take it. Nanite Control, watch what you're doing with those prisoners! They just-- Dammit, Joel! Get those prisoners attack the right targets!
  • Joel: We're trying, but they're not responding. The inhibitor transmissions aren't any effect!
  • Philip: Then spike their nanochains! Shut them down, NOW!
  • Joel: No effect, Phil! The villains are completely out of control!
  • Arakune: You don't say.
  • Sora: Looks like Merlin was right about your nanite-injected slaves.
  • Philip: We had it under control until you busted in here and release them all.
  • Winston: Gentlemen, I suggest we focus on getting our people out of here alive.
