Damage Control is an organization created by S.H.I.E.L.D. that specializes in acquiring and storing unique artifacts while acting from physical and media standpoints. Following the Battle of New York, Damage Control was purchased in a joint venture by Tony Stark and the United States government and was officially designed as the United States Department of Damage Control.

History

S.H.I.E.L.D.

"We have a team called Damage Control on scene right now, at your factory and on the highway. They assess and control messes like this."
Phil Coulson to Tony Stark[src]

The Damage Control team was present both at the highway and Stark Industries Headquarters to contain and repair all damage done by the battle between Iron Man and Iron Monger in Los Angeles. Tony Stark and James Rhodes were taken to a secret base where they encountered S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson. Coulson told them that Stark's fight against Stane was good, but that he needs to learn how to become a real fighter.[1]

The D.O.D.C. is born

"Attention, please! In accordance with Executive Order 396-B, all post-battle clean-up operations are now under our jurisdiction. Thank you for your service; we'll take it from here."
Anne Marie Hoag to Adrian Toomes' Crew[src]

Damage Control was purchased by Tony Stark and the federal government in a joint venture, where it was rebranded as the United States Department of Damage Control. Under Executive Order 396-B, all post-Battle of New York clean up would fall under Damage Control's jurisdiction. This caused companies such as Bestman Salvage to lose their New York City contracts.[3][4]

"All those men here... He had to shoot them to..."
"I know, I know. It's a lot to take in. But you're safe now. S.H.I.E.L.D. will take all the wounded men into custody, and Damage Control will clean up."
Ruben Mackenzie and Daisy Johnson[src]

Damage Control was called by S.H.I.E.L.D. to clean up an attack made by members of the Watchdogs in the family house of brothers Alphonso and Ruben Mackenzie in Naperville.[5]

"Whoa, what is going on?"
"Damage Control. They're still cleaning up from when Captain America took down those skycraft carriers for no reason."
"I'm pretty sure Cap was just trying to save us from tyranny."
"Yeah. That's what they want you to think."
Ned Leeds and Michelle Jones[src]

Having spent two years since the Battle at the Triskelion, the Department of Damage Control was still cleaning up the destroyed Helicarrier and Triskelion rubble.[6]
