|For other uses, see Damage Control (disambiguation)|
Damage Control is an organization created by S.H.I.E.L.D. that specializes in post-battle clean-up and the salvaging of dangerous or alien artifacts. Following the Battle of New York, Damage Control was purchased in a joint venture by Stark Industries and the United States government and was officially designated as the U.S. Department of Damage Control.
The Damage Control team was present both at the highway and Stark Industries Headquarters in Los Angeles to contain and repair all damage done by the battle between Iron Man and Iron Monger. Tony Stark and James Rhodes were later encountered S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson at a secret base. Coulson told them that Stark's fight against Stane was good but he needs to learn how to become a real fighter, before showing Damage Control at work.
The following day, before Stark's press conference, a news ticker-tape on KNKV News mentioned that Damage Control Officials were expected 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.
