- "A joint venture between Stark Industries and the federal government, the Department of Damage Control will oversee collection and storage of alien and other exotic materials."
- ―TV Reporter
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.
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.
The following day, before a press conference for Tony Stark, a news ticker-tape on the KNKV News mentioned that Damage Control Officials were to issue a report on the Duel of Los Angeles within the following days.
Under New Management
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.
Watchdogs in Naperville
Due to the confrontation between the Criminal Avengers and Spider-Man, the Queens Community Bank and Delmar's Deli-Grocery were seriously damaged. Damage Control was assigned to clean up the aftermath of the incident, as Anne Marie Hoag and Foster arrived at the scene to supervise the cleanup.
