Battle in ManhattanAvengers Initiative Prologue

He turns to his assistant. "Hill, get communications back up. I want to know everything."
Hill nods and starts to turn. "Right away sir."
"Oh and Hill?" he adds.
"Yes?" she replies.
He turns and gives her a steely glare. "Get Beta Team ready to go as well."
She smiles and nods. "I was wondering when you'd make them public."
"So now you know. The Avengers are already there or on the way. Now that Loki is ready and his army is coming and soon...we'd like to unveil our other team as well." Hill says to the individual before her.
He simply frowns. "Team? Not teams?"
Hill smiles. "At this time, we'd still like to keep a card or two up our sleeves before something...someone forces our hand."
He sighs. "SHIELD never changes...does it?"
Hill shrugs. "We have, a fair amount. Before Coulson and Stark met...well we haven't before done anything as risky as the Avengers Initiative."
He nods. "True...however, that's only because you had to. Just like Phase-2, I reckon."
Hill gapes in shock. "How did you..."
"You have your weapons, I have my methods. We play with the toys we're given." he replies. "Now, enough conversation. I better get over there." he says before flying off in a flash of light.
Hill nods in agreement as she watches him fade from sight. "Right." she says to no one in particular. "Good luck."
He arrives, just in time. From a distance, he watches as Tony fires upon the approaching figures above Stark Tower, lighting a fair amount up. Still, even from this distance he can see it's not enough as they start to spread out and strafe the surrounding areas.
"Time to help." he remarks before increasing speed. Soon enough, he's close enough and blasts a few of the assailants with energy beams, before slowing down and tackles one into the ground. He quickly jumps up and punches another into a nearby car, kicks two others into unconsciousness with a quick roundhouse and turns and blasts the last one before rocketing off. "Alright, fourth street's clear."
"Beta Lead, you hear me?" Fury's voice crackles into his ear piece.
"Loud and clear." he replies.
"Good. The rest of the Avengers have arrived to help out Stark." Fury says.
He glances off to the side, watching lightning bolts fry a lot of the bastards. "No kidding."
"Also...the rest of Beta team is getting briefed and will be on the way soon." Fury notes.
"Don't hurry them on my account, its not like the city is in danger." he remarks.
"Just do what you can." Fury replies.
Fury and Hill stand before the fresh-faced Beta Team members, each of them eager and willing to serve. He stares at each of them in turn...knowing that some may not return from this battle...but wishes they all could.
"Alright, listen up. The Avengers are already in Manhattan, fighting against Loki and his army of aliens...the Chitauri. We don't know where they're from and it doesn't really matter right now. What does matter is that they are currently obliterating Manhattan, despite the Avengers best efforts." Fury states. "Which is why you are all here. We need all the help that we can get. Now, your team leader is already on-site. You are to meet up with him ASAP."
A picture of him flashes up on screen. "He's not the perfect leader...but he is a space cop and has experience dealing with aliens. Moreover, in terms of power he's a cross between Iron Man and Thor in certain aspects...which are all good reasons he's team lead." Fury remarks.
"Now, go and do your duty. Good luck. Dismissed." Fury barks as an order.
The various members of the team head out to the hangar, some more reluctantly then others but all the same, they go. Clambering aboard, the two red shirt SHIELD pilots close the opening hatch and take off. Setting a course for Manhattan, the pilots glance at the unsavory group and wonder about them, before returning sight to the wide open sky before them.

"I expected Fury to cover this, but since he didn't I might as well give you fellows a warning or two; don't get in my sights when I'm shooting and don't let me near pointy objects if you don't want a mess...I like getting creative sometimes." he says passively before ending with the slightest of smirks. He expected to piss someone off, but if that failed he wouldn't press the matter for the moment. Regardless he did a weapons check to make sure he wouldn't have to rely on chucking his guns at the Chitauri to kill them...not that he wasn't confident in his ability to do so.

"I'll try to remember that, Lester, as long as you play nice. I know you have trouble doing that sometimes."

After lift-off, Spector stood near the front of the vehicle, grasping a hand railing and observing the city through the window. It didn't look good. These "Chitauri" were numerous and advanced, it seemed-- not exactly a good sign considering they were invading the planet.
He decided to perform a quick inventory check to pass the time. His weapons were all accounted for, and he wore his costume composed of the rare metal, Carbonadium. He ignored Bullseye's comments, thinking it best not to socialize with psychopaths unless he had to.

Like the others, Boris boarded the aircraft. He headed towards the middle of the plane, scanning the others through his visor. Some of them seemed up to snuff, others didn't. One was particularly cocky, which elicit a hearty laugh from the armored man. He was going to say something, but, it not need to be said.

Wise move Nick, Bullseye thinks to himself as he takes out a toothpick and puts it in his mouth. He chomps on it a bit before speaking back.
"Don't worry about it spook, I'm making friends already." he says, making a slightly larger grin than from earlier as he motioned to the rather large man with a sense of humor as well as the cajun card player. With that he turned to Gambit and gave him a look over. Focusing on the card in his hand for a bit he then glanced between Gambit's face and his hand a few times. He played with his toothpick before speaking. "Nice cards, know any good tricks? I got a few, but they're not terribly flashy." he notes without changing demeanors in the slightest.

For the time being Punisher kept to himself and said nothing. Words with his other team members weren't needed. He had a mission to do and he was going to do it. All those little aliens were about as good as dead when he touched the ground. Right now he was already running different images on how he would go about attacking them. It would be a heated battle and he needed to be on point for this mission. He didn't plan on getting himself killed with any unneeded actions in this battle. Their were mob bosses, mafias, villains, and other scums he had to return to killing when all of this was over. Hell he had to start making plans to take out that fat piece of shit called Kingpin who ran New York and was giving that Daredevil hero problems.
Punisher looked to the rest of his teammates as he spoke the only few words he would say to them on the way to the battlefield and then go back to mentally preparing himself for this battle.
" If any of you are pieces of shit not worth living don't get in my way on that battlefield or I can't help it if a bullet manages to accidentally come flying your way. Oh and if you have any prayers don't bother saying them. When I am on that ground God is gone sit this one out."

"Definitely has some flair to it, I'll admit that." he chuckles before going over some things in his head. "Something bad might happen if I touch it eh? Memory's a bit fuzzy on that detail." he asks in a tone that denotes he might just try to pull something as he twirls the toothpick. It's around that time he hears Castle speak. He chomps on the toothpick again as he finishes up. He visibly turns to him and just sneers before looking away. He coudl ell he was fully armed and had his weapons primed. It just made it that much harder to resist pressing the guy, the scenario seemed about even given the circumstances to Bullseye. He definiely knew Frank would pull it without a single problem. That was the fun of it given the confines. Instead though, he just shrugs.
"Very well Frank, that's professional courtesy at the very least. I hope you can do the same." he says, switching to an even tone as he went back to minding his own business.

"Of course, I'll make a special note to stay away from you and your toys."
After speaking he simply leaned back, seemingly bored with the happenings.

"Conflict everywhere. If not against human opressors than it's aliens."
She said to no one in particular.
"I guess that is the price you pay for laying with the devil."

He took a moment to glance down at his midnight black attire; a comfortable, self proclaimed stylish outfit. Of course, it was as alive as he was. "Not that I need it."

"Yeah, very badass. Next thing you're telling me, you're going to swagger around the streets trying to look like awesome..." Pilot #2 joked.
