"Look, I may not know much, but I do know this: Europeans love Americans."
Ned Leeds[src]

Europe is the second smallest continent out of seven on the planet Earth. It is known for its varied nature.

History

This section requires expansion

Before 20th Century

Convergence

In 2988 B.C., the Convergence, a cosmic event in which the Nine Realms are aligned, took place, opening wormholes between the Realms. The megalithic monument, Stonehenge, was built as one of many landmarks created to mark the coordinates of the focal point of the first Convergence.[1]

Battle of Tønsberg

"From around the cold and darkness came the Frost Giants, threatening to plunge the mortal world into a new ice age. But humanity would not face this threat alone."
Odin[src]

Odin challenges the Frost Giants in Norway

In 965 A.D., the Frost Giants of Jotunheim, led by their king Laufey, arrived in Tønsberg, Norway planning to freeze everything in their path using the Casket of Ancient Winters to plunge the world into a new ice age. However, the Asgardian army, led by King Odin, arrived and engaged in a battle against the Frost Giants, forcing them to abandon Earth and retreat to their own world.[2]

Berserker Staff

"He fell so much in love that when his army returned to Asgard, he stayed behind."
"What happened to the staff?"
"Well, he didn't want its dark magic falling into the wrong hands. So, he broke it into three pieces and hid each one in a different location."
Elliot Randolph and Leo Fitz[src]

In the 12th century, Elliot Randolph, an Asgardian, was recruited for a military mission on Earth. While on Earth, Randolph served with the Asgardian Berserker Army, who gained superior strength, even by Asgardian standards, by touching a device known as the Berserker Staff, which brought all of the rage and hatred that the wielder keeps suppressed and transforms it into strength. During his time on Earth, Randolph fell in love with the planet and its people, and when the rest of the Asgardian host returned home, Randolph stayed behind.

The Berserker Staff was left behind as well. Randolph, who now considered himself a pacifist, did not want the staff or the power it possessed. Fearing that the dark magic of the staff would fall into the wrong hands, he broke the staff into three pieces and spread them in various places across Europe. He hid one in a tree in what would become the Trillemarka National Park in Norway, one in a crypt in Seville, Spain, and the final piece in a church in Ireland.[3]

Tesseract

The Tesseract, containing the Space Stone, was brought to Earth by Odin and, over the centuries, it ended up being kept safe in a church in the village of Tønsberg, Norway. Eventually, the Tesseract became the subject of many legends of Norse mythology.[4]

Red Room

In the 1930s, the Red Room was founded and their academy was based out of Belarus. The Red Room was a secret Soviet-Russian training program that involved taking young women and turning them into elite spies and assassins known as Black Widows.[5]

World War II

"War continues to ravage Europe. But help is on the way. Every able-bodied young man is lining up to serve his country."
―Commercial Announcer[src]

In September 1, 1939, Adolf Hitler led a German invasion of Poland. Two days later, France and England declared war on Germany, beginning World War II.

In late 1940, Peggy Carter, a member of the Strategic Scientific Reserve, went to the Castle Kaufmann in Germany and freed the captive scientist, Abraham Erskine. Erskine was then recruited to help in Project Rebirth.[6]

Destruction of Castle Rock Tower

"The Tesseract was the jewel of Odin's treasure room. It's not something one buries. But I think it is close, yes?"
"I cannot help you."
"No. But maybe you can help your village."
Johann Schmidt and Church Keeper[src]

Johann Schmidt steals the Tesseract in Norway

In 1942, Johann Schmidt led his organization, HYDRA, to Tønsberg, Norway in order to retrieve the Tesseract. As his agents destroyed Tønsberg, Schmidt went to Castle Rock Tower, where he killed the Church Keeper, and took the Tesseract.[4]

Battle of Azzano

"Schmidt sent out a force to Azzano. Two hundred men went up against him and less than fifty returned. Your audience contained what was left of the 107th. The rest were killed or captured."
Peggy Carter to Steve Rogers[src]

HYDRA soldiers fighting out in Azzano, Italy

In October 1943, Bucky Barnes, Gabe Jones, Dum Dum Dugan, and other members of the 107th Infantry Regiment went to Azzano, Italy to battle Wehrmacht soldiers. During the battle, a battalion of HYDRA soldiers arrived and killed the Wehrmacht, before taking the surviving members of the 107th Infantry prisoner.[4]

HYDRA Facilities

"Hitler speaks of a thousand-year Reich, but he cannot feed his armies for a month. His troops spill their blood across every field in Europe."
Red Skull[src]

During World War II, HYDRA seized control of many facilities following the occupation of Austria by Nazi Germany, Johann Schmidt established one of his many weapons facilities under command of Colonel Lohmer.[6] General Werner Reinhardt was in command of two of these facilities, a fortress that served as his main headquarters[7], and the HYDRA Research Facility Number 4, that served as a warehouse for dozens of artifacts obtained by HYDRA by the time of World War II, many of them held in the boxes marked with the logo of the Deutsches Afrikakorps, including a blue extraterrestrial corpse and a Obelisk that was able to petrify anyone who held it.[8]

Uprising at the Austrian HYDRA Weapons Facility

The Austrian HYDRA Weapons Facility

Colonel Lohmer, officer in charge of one of the HYDRA Weapons Facilities built in Austria after its invasion by German forces, devised a strategy to reduce the potential number of mutinies among the prisoners of war captured and enslaved inside the factory, based on his beliefs that the Third Reich would win World War II because its members were unified, while the enemies of the Reich were of different nationalities and ethnicities, and that would cause conflict among them. As such, Lohmer split the prisoners by nationality, locking up members of different factions and brigades within the Allied Forces, hoping that they would be too busy fighting each other to try to fight their jailors. For example, he put in the same cell a British member of the 3rd Independent Parachute Brigade, James Montgomery Falsworth, a member of the French Resistance, Jacques Dernier, a member of the 92nd Infantry Regiment, Gabe Jones, a member of the 69th Infantry Regiment, Dum Dum Dugan, and a member of the 107th Infantry Regiment, Bucky Barnes, many of them captured. A joke made by Dugan while introducing themselves raised tension between the cellmates, and a brawl started, proving Lohmer's point.

Barnes contracted pneumonia while on the battlefield and received a brutal beating for being unable to satisfy the quotas of production, letting munitions fall while moving a cart. Jones tended to Barnes when they returned to the cell, assuring that, given his sickness, contusions and broken ribs, if Lohmer made him work the following day, Barnes wouldn't survive. His cellmates, knowing that Lieutenant Kleiber was a reasonable man, tried to think of a way to avoid Lohmer forcing Barnes into hard labor. Falsworth, being a strategy expert, devised a plan to get rid of Lohmer that required Dugan, Jones and Dernier to work as a team using their respective expertise.

The following day, Falsworth's plan was carried out, with Dugan, Jones, and Falsworth smuggling components for Dernier so he could make a substance to melt the chain of a crane carrying scrap. Lohmer appeared, demanding to incorporate Barnes into labor, though Kleiber considered him too sick. Just as Lohmer was shouting that Barnes would die working if necessary, Kleiber ordered the crane to be activated. The melted chain broke, dropping the crane's load on Lohmer as he passed, crushing him.

The soldiers made every prisoner return to their cell. Dugan informed Barnes that Lohmer wouldn't cause any harm again, while their role in his death couldn't be proven and the punishment would just be reducing their food rations for a week. Barnes only response was, however, to ask Dugan to stop calling him "Jimmy", as his full name was James Buchanan Barnes and he preferred being called Bucky.[6]

Liberation of Allied Prisoners of War

"They're thirty miles behind the lines. Through the most heavily fortified territory in Europe."
Chester Phillips[src]

Steve Rogers arrives at the HYDRA facility

In November 1943, Steve Rogers, hearing about the events in Azzano and the imprisonment of the soldiers that battled HYDRA, decided to rescue the prisoners alone. Agent Peggy Carter of the Strategic Scientific Reserve supported his decision and offered to fly him from Italy to Austria in a plane piloted by Howard Stark. Discussing the details of Rogers' extraction, the plane went under attack, so Rogers decided to jump off the plane, ordering them to abandon enemy airspace, as now he was a captain, and therefore able to give orders.

Johann Schmidt and Arnim Zola tour the HYDRA facility

Arnim Zola was transferred from HYDRA Headquarters and put in charge of the weapons facility, with the Tesseract contained inside the factory to harness its energy to fuel production and power the weapons. Zola took Johann Schmidt on a tour of the production floor, with Zola being very pleased that they where ahead of schedule considering the large size of many of the parts. Schmidt was not all that impressed and order Zola to increase the output in this and the rest of facilities. When Zola informed him that the request was not possible given the condition of the prisoners, Schmidt casually replied for Zola to use what remaining strength they had left and that new workers were easy to come by.

Steve Rogers discovers Tesseract fueled weapons

Rogers successfully infiltrated the facility boarding a truck, and made his way through the production floors to the prison, acquiring a Tesseract fuel cell along the way. Rogers freed the prisoners, asking for the whereabouts of his friend, Sergeant James "Bucky" Barnes, and told them to exit the facility heading to a nearby forest, battling HYDRA soldiers along the way, while Rogers went to look for Barnes.

Steve Rogers searches for Bucky Barnes

The freed prisoners battled HYDRA forces, seizing many weapons and vehicles to clear their way out. Schmidt observed the ensuing chaos on the security monitors and activated an alarm signal in the whole facility, before realizing that Steve Rogers also infiltrated the base. In order to avoid the facility being captured, Schmidt activated the self-destruct sequence to the shock of Arnim Zola, who rushed to his office, in order to save important documents, coming across Rogers but fleeing before being reached.

Steve Rogers finds Bucky Barnes

Rogers eventually found Barnes in a laboratory, where a map showing other HYDRA facilities was displayed. Rogers memorized the map and began searching an exit with Barnes just before the self-destruct mechanisms started to explode. As the two tried to find a way out, they came across Schmidt and Zola, where Schmidt taunted Rogers about their no longer human nature after being subjected to Abraham Erskine's Super Soldier Serum.

Red Skull reveals his face

Rogers and Schmidt two exchanged blows, but Zola pulled a nearby lever causing the walkway the two were standing on to separate. Before making their getaway, Schmidt revealed his true face to Rogers, the result of have the Erskine's imperfect serum, being that the reason of his nickname, the Red Skull. Schmidt boarded a single manned aircraft to escape the facility, while giving Zola the keys of his personal car to escape.

Steve Rogers leaps across the explosions

As the explosions continued, Rogers and Barnes made their way up the factory to a beam they needed to cross to get to safety. Barnes managed to get across before the beam broke. Without the beam, Rogers was left with no other option then to jump across in order to make it to safety. Despite the danger, Rogers successfully made the jump across the void through the erupting flames.

Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes return to Italy

Rogers and Barnes successfully escaped the facility, and met up with the rest of the freed prisoners. They then made their way back to the camp in Italy.[4]

Destruction of HYDRA Facilities

The Howling Commandos are recruited

Back at the base, Steve Rogers recruited the freed prisoners to join the Howling Commandos, which was a unit comprised of the United States Armed Forces 107th Infantry Regiment, British military, and French resistance. After having witnessed a map showing the location of HYDRA facilities in Europe while liberating the prisoners, Rogers was tasked to destroy all those facilities with a team while MI6 focused on locating the central HYDRA Headquarters. Rogers enlisted the help of Dum Dum Dugan, Gabe Jones, Jim Morita, James Montgomery Falsworth, Jacques Dernier, and Bucky Barnes.

Steve Rogers and the Howling Commandos in Belgium

Steve Rogers and his unit traveled to Belgium in order to destroy the HYDRA Facility located there. Once they arrived, they set the facility to explode, and escaped before the detonations went off.

Steve Rogers continues his mission

Rogers and the Howling Commandos attacked facilities in France, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Russia, and Portugal, leaving them all demolished.

Red Skull sees a destroyed facility

Red Skull arrived at one of his destroyed facilities and angrily yelled at Arnim Zola for failing to stop the attacks. Zola was then ordered to finish the mission and went on the Schnellzug EB912 travelling through the Eastern Austrian Alps along the Danube River to HYDRA Headquarters.[4]

Capture of Arnim Zola

Steve Rogers and the Howling Commandos in the Austrian Alps

Steve Rogers and the Howling Commandos followed closely behind, and after Gabe Jones confirmed Arnim Zola was a passenger, they went forward with their plan. They set up a zip-line from the cliff to the mountainside on which the tracks ran, allowing them to travel safely over the deep valley. Jones went forwards to get to Zola, while Rogers and Bucky Barnes worked as a distraction team to draw out Zola's guards.

Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes inside the train

The plan worked as Rogers and Barnes engaged the HYDRA soldiers in firefight, trading shots from behind cover. However, the two were separated by mechanical doors. Rogers killed one soldier, who had been wielding a HYDRA Cannon, and used it to blast open one of the doors. Rogers then tossed a M19111 pistol to Barnes, who had run dry of ammunition, and the two worked side by side to defeat the soldiers.

Bucky Barnes falls into the valley below

After another solider with a Cannon attacked, Rogers deflected an energy pulse. The blast ripped open the side, exposing the interior to the cold winter air outside. Barnes grabbed Rogers' shield and used it to fight the soldier. However, the soldier shot another blast, which caused Barnes to fall out of the train. Although, he managed to grab onto part of the destroyed hull. Rogers recovered and killed the soldier and then ran to save Barnes. Rogers urged Barnes to grab his hand, but the railing snapped, and Barnes fell off into the deep valley below.

Gabe Jones captures Arnim Zola

Jones managed to find Zola and held him and the train's conductor at gunpoint. Afterwards, the Howling Commandos were able to be extracted with Zola as the prisoner.[4]

Siege of Bastogne

In December 1944, Bastogne, Belgium was the site of an engagement between Allied and German forces. One of the soldiers fighting on the American side was Daniel Sousa[9]. While fighting Sousa was in the femur by shrapnel, necessitating an amputation.[10]

Werner Reinhardt's Experiments

Werner Reinhardt experiments on the Obelisk

In 1945, the HYDRA Fortress was under the command of HYDRA General Werner Reinhardt, who used it to conduct experiments on his prisoners. Among the various experiments performed by Reinhardt and his lead scientist was studying the petrifying effects of the Obelisk. To this end, the occupants of the Hunan village who found the Kree artifact were imprisoned here to be test subjects.

During one session, Reinhardt taunted one of the prisoners with the beauty of the artifact while the whole session was being recorded. Reinhardt asked how the prisoner and his group managed to find the Obelisk, to which he fearfully answered that they heard a legend regarding to it.

Reinhardt politely asked the prisoner to hold the Obelisk, hiding his true intention of witnessing how the Obelisk petrified his body. However, as soon as the prisoner grabbed the artifact, his body turned to stone. The lead HYDRA Scientist remarked the speed this particular body was petrified, and Reinhardt deduced that gender and race where no factors in how the Obelisk reacted, being unable to find any pattern.

Werner Reinhardt experimenting with Jiaying

Reinhardt ordered to bring the next subject, a young woman, and again politely asked her to grab the Obelisk. Unlike the former prisoner, the woman tried to resist, but was ultimately forced to touch the item with her face, as Reinhardt claimed that discovery required experimentation. The reaction was very different as, instead of turning her into stone, the Obelisk glew displaying a series of symbols.

Reinhardt and the rest of HYDRA members and guards were extremely surprised about the outcome, and Reinhardt ordered to prepare the woman for surgery in order to examine what made her different.

An officer quickly arrived at the room to inform Reinhardt about the fall of Red Skull and how the Allied forces were approaching their location. Reinhardt regretted the loss of a great mind, and ordered to imprison the Chinese woman, as he and his troops went to evacuate to another facility.[7]

Capture of the HYDRA Research Facility

In 1945, the facility was under the command of HYDRA General Werner Reinhardt, who supervised the dismantling of the facility and the move of all the items held there in the final days of World War II. Reinhardt was specially concerned about the move of the Obelisk, reminding one of his officers about the care needed to move it and informing him of the death of their leader, Johann Schmidt, but that his vision would continue living, and HYDRA would continue to work for their goals. Reinhardt was presented with the Obelisk, admiring it once again, as he explained it was an advanced artifact that according to Schmidt, it may hold the answer to death itself, but was also responsible for the death of some of the petrified corpses that were in the facility.

Werner Reinhardt being arrested by the SSR

As they were evacuating, the facility came under attack by the Strategic Scientific Reserve, with a team led by Peggy Carter, Dum Dum Dugan, and Jim Morita. The soldiers easily surrendered, though Carter had to threaten Reinhardt in order to make him put the Obelisk down, informing all of them that all the assets in the facility were taken under the protection of the Strategic Scientific Reserve to be relocated and indefinitely hidden.

Reinhardt, his lieutenant and all their soldiers were taken into custody, though Reinhardt menaced Carter with the HYDRA motto as Dugan was handcuffing him.

As the prisoners were taken out, the soldiers started to pack and mark every artifact held into the facility in order to move them to a secure facility. Carter personally took care that nobody, including Dugan, was able to witness the blue corpse, while explaining the need to get the items out of enemy territory as soon as possible, as Howard Stark planned to examine them that same night, and she warned Morita, who was about to put the Obelisk inside a box, to never touch it, marking the box with the reference 0-8-4.

Jim Morita takes the Obelisk in custody

Carter finally shared her thoughts that they had managed to beat HYDRA, as this facility was the last HYDRA site they knew of, but also commented that a peacetime permanent unit to supervise both the confiscated artifacts and people like Howard Stark that would investigate them, was necessary.[8]

Leviathan

In 1946, Peggy Carter and the Howling Commandos discovered the Red Room Academy in Belarus. They found a classroom that resembled an American one, which made them feel uneasy. After a projector was unintentionally set off, they saw pictures with words written in Russian. While there, they found a girl named Eva, who was crying. Dum Dum Dugan went over to see her and showed her he posed no harm, by sheathing his weapon. However, due to being trained to be an assassin, Eva stabbed Dugan in his bulletproof vest with a knife and proceeded to steal a gun, killing Junior Juniper. Carter then kicked the gun out of her hand, but Eva escaped into a vent before she could be apprehended. Later, during a fight between the Howling Commandos and Leviathan operatives, Eva returned and killed Mike Li and injured Happy Sam Sawyer.[11]

Cold War

In 1947, tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States of America led to the Cold War. Unknown to the Americans, HYDRA was still active within the Soviet Union and were responsible for many crises of the Cold War, including the Cuban missile crisis, the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963[12][13], the rise to power of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, the 1979 Iranian Revolution, the early 1980s recession, and many other incidents. HYDRA's best assassin, the Winter Soldier, was sent by the Soviet Union to eliminate many people who posed a threat to HYDRA's plans.[12]

Also during the war, the CIA tasked Nick Fury with operations in Belfast, Ireland, Belgrade, Serbia, Bucharest, Romania, and Budapest, Hungary.[14]

In 1991, the War ended with the dissolution of the Soviet Union.[12]

Infiltration into East Berlin

When a group of radicals in East Berlin, Germany obtained a piece of HYDRA technology and attempted to reverse-engineer it, Hank Pym was sent by S.H.I.E.L.D. to ruin their plans. After he did successfully, he decided to do more field work for them in his suit.[15] However, his wife, Janet van Dyne, was apparently killed during a mission with him to intercept and disable a Soviet ICBM.[16]

In 2010, Tony Stark, facing possible death by palladium poisoning, chose to participate in the Monaco Grand Prix However, he was ambushed by Whiplash and was caught off guard, but managed to fight Whiplash and the local authorities came to arrest him.[18]

Assembling the Avengers

Loki in Stuttgart, Germany

In 2012, Loki attacked a gala in Stuttgart, Germany. Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Natasha Romanoff arrived there via Quinjet and Rogers and Stark managed to subdue Loki. They took him onboard the Quinjet, but while in flight, Thor arrived and took Loki away. This prompted Rogers and Stark to go after them and after a brief fight in a forest, the three worked together.[19]

Search for the Mandarin

Once J.A.R.V.I.S. factored in available A.I.M. downlink facilities he was able to pinpoint the Mandarin's broadcast signal. When Tony Stark tried to guess the location, Europe was one of the locations that J.A.R.V.I.S. mentioned.[17]

Battle of Greenwich

Thor and Jane Foster in London, England

In 2013, Jane Foster was living in London, England. One day in the fall, she went on a date with Richard Madison at a local restaurant. Their date was interrupted when Darcy Lewis arrived and told her that her scientific equipment had been picking up strange signals. Lewis and her intern, Ian Boothby, then took Foster to where the signal was highest and arrived at an abandoned warehouse. There they learned that portals to other realms throughout the universe had opened up. As they explored, Foster fell into one of them and returned infected with the Aether. Immediately after this, Thor arrived via the Bifrost Bridge in order to help Foster and left via the Bifrost again, surprising local first responders.

Erik Selvig with Darcy Lewis and Ian Boothby

Still suffering from his mind being controlled, Erik Selvig was reported streaking by the Stonehenge on local news and was taken to a mental institution. Darcy Lewis and Ian Boothby went there in order to discharge Selvig as they needed his help. They grouped up at Foster's apartment and were soon reunited with Thor and Foster. Together, they made plans for the Convergence.

The Convergence ascends over London

Soon the Convergence took place in Greenwich and portals opening up to the Nine Realms appeared over London. Malekith, the leader of the Dark Elves, arrived in the Ark, and fought against Thor. As Malekith tried to unleash the Aether's power over London, Thor fought him through the Nine Realms, managing to defeat him and send the Ark through a portal with Selvig and Foster's aid. During this time, a Frost Beast was transported into London and roamed freely around, eating a bird in an empty parking lot. Later, Thor met Foster at her apartment and opted to stay with her.[1] Coulson's Team was sent afterwards for clean-up duty, and had to battle Norse Paganists.[3]

This section requires expansion

Ian Quinn's Villa

"We need to reroute the plane. We just got word from S.H.I.E.L.D. that the train stopped suddenly in the Italian countryside."
Grant Ward to Phil Coulson and Melinda May[src]

Leo Fitz and Skye followed the Cybertek package to an Italian villa, where Carlo Mancini delivered the package to Ian Quinn, who arrived shortly after all of them. Fitz and Skye activated a Tracker to let the rest of their team know their location.

Skye decided to infiltrate the villa and apprehend Quinn herself, as she did not want to let Quinn escape because that is what Coulson would want them to do. Skye also asked Fitz to disable the cars, so he retrieved a Localized EMP Device and handed her a Night-Night Gun to defend herself inside the villa.

Skye was able to shoot the guard at the entrance of the compound, hitting him before he could retrieve, while Fitz hid under the different cars, disabling them with the EMP device. Inside the villa, Skye went to the basement, having overheard Sofia about the location of the package.

Hyperbaric Chamber.png

As she descended, she located the package, but she also saw a large Hyperbaric Chamber where Michael Peterson was being contained. However, Quinn managed to catch her by surprise, and Carlo Mancini easily disarmed her and pointed at her with her own gun.

Quinn revealed that the Clairvoyant told him to expect her, and also that he was responsible for giving Cybertek the specs of the Night-Night Gun so they could transform it into an aerosol grenade. Quinn opened the chamber and awoke Peterson, badly scarred from the explosion that cost him his right leg.

Peterson had previously received orders through his Backscatter X-Ray Eye Implant, and Quinn had bought an item from Cybertek to help him complete them. The package S.H.I.E.L.D. had been tracking turned out to be a technologically advanced prosthetic leg designed to replace his missing limb; Mancini painfully attached to Peterson's stump and activated it to expand into a fully functional leg.

Quinn dismissed Mancini, telling him he would receive his payment, then tested Peterson's loyalties, knowing that he received orders from the Clairvoyant. Peterson was not allowed to hurt Quinn, even if Quinn tried to hurt him. Skye tried to plead with Peterson, asking him to leave there with her. Peterson refused to hurt Skye, as that was not his orders, and left to fulfill his actual orders.

Skye tried to stop Peterson, but as he departed without listening, she confronted Quinn, who shot her in the stomach without saying anything, and another time at point blank range. Quinn apologized for doing it, but he also had his orders from the Clairvoyant. Quinn left the basement, leaving a badly injured Skye crawling to the door in order to ask for help with her last strength.

Peterson confronted Mancini, Sofia and the rest of the Cybertek security team, telling them they failed as they led S.H.I.E.L.D. right to them. Sofia tried to negotiate with Peterson, asking to speak to Quinn, but Peterson grabbed Sofia's neck and broke it, effectively killing her. Peterson threw Mancini through a window, and his corpse fell right next to the car Fitz was hijacking.

WardGunsABlazing-TRACKS.png

As Fitz tried to enter the villa to rescue Skye, Phil Coulson, Grant Ward, Melinda May and Jemma Simmons arrived to the compound, with Ward saving Fitz from a guard that was about to kill him. The whole team entered the compound, with Ward disabling Quinn's bodyguards and Coulson personally holding Quinn at gunpoint.

Peterson killed the remaining Cybertek agents, but he was ordered not to engage S.H.I.E.L.D., so he left the compound unnoticed.

Coulson interrogated Quinn about Skye's location; Quinn mocked him for sending her alone in a mission when she meant so much to him. Noticing that Quinn had blood in his hands, Coulson ordered his agents to find her in the house, but he was the one who entered the basement and located her, badly injured and dying.

Simmons promptly examined Skye, noticing she had lost too much blood, but she ordered Skye to be placed inside the Hyperbaric Chamber where Peterson was to save her life. Fitz lowered the temperature inside the chamber, managing to let Skye breathe again, as the chamber managed to stabilize her condition until she could be properly treated.

The chamber was taken to the Bus in order to get Skye to the nearest medical facility before she sustained permanent brain damage caused by a long exposure to the conditions inside the chamber.[22]

Search for the Clairvoyant

In search for the Clairvoyant, Agents Grant Ward and Antoine Triplett went to Milton Keynes Prison to interview Elijah Fordham, a one-time British Army soldier turned felon. Before the agents could talk to him, they were called away to deal with Deathlok fighting Felix Blake in the United States.[23]

Hunting HYDRA Cells

In 2014, following the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury left for Europe, intending to seek out and destroy the remaining HYDRA cells there.[12]

HYDRA's Experiments

Baron Strucker in his base in Sokovia

In 2014, HYDRA scientist List performed experiments at the HYDRA Research Base in Sokovia on citizens to see what effect exposure to the Scepter gave;[24] only the twins Wanda and Pietro Maximoff survived the experimentation. They were granted powers, causing HYDRA leader Baron Strucker to call them "miracles".[25]

Ambush at the Belgium Safe House

In 2015, Agent Noelle Walters, who was stationed in the Netherlands, was told by S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Phil Coulson to have her team on standby as he researched the HYDRA attack on the United Nations Headquarters. When he learned that the mercenary Marcus Scarlotti was seeking Julien Beckers, Coulson told her to have her team find and protect Beckers in a safehouse in Bruges. Unknown to Coulson and Walters, Beckers was an ally of Scarlotti and HYDRA. Beckers allowed Scarlotti and his mercenaries to enter the safehouse and kill Walters and her team. Upon learning the truth, Melinda May, Bobbi Morse, and Lance Hunter fought and defeated the hired guns. Glenn Talbot arrested the mercenaries and Beckers was caught at the Belgium border.[26]

Duel of Faro

In the spring of 2015, Sif went to Faro, Portugal and found Vin-Tak, a Kree. Vin-Tak managed to hold his own against her sword and blocked it with his Truncheon. Sif hit his chest, causing the device he used to pose as human to turn his skin from blue to pink and making it lose the liquid nitrogen. When the nitrogen hit a nearby lampost, Vin-Tak hit Sif with Truncheon causing her to lose her memories. Sif was then detained.[27]

Chase of Vin-Tak

Phil Coulson and his team went to Portugal to see Sif at a police station. After finding out she was amnesiac, Coulson, Melinda May, and Sif went to the site in order to learn more about what happened. Meanwhile, Bobbi Morse and Skye went to a nearby hospital and found Vin-Tak. However, he defeated them and escaped. After deducing what Vin-Tak might want, they travelled to Chaves, Portugal and found him digging out a crate. He tried to fight, but they overpowered him.[27]

Attack on the HYDRA Research Base

The Avengers arrive in Sokovia

In 2015, using information provided by Phil Coulson, [28] the Avengers consisting of Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Thor, Bruce Banner, Clint Barton, and Natasha Romanoff attacked the base. Baron Strucker sent Pietro and Wanda Maximoff after them, but the Avengers were successful in their mission, retrieving the Scepter. However, Barton was injured during the fight, but was taken safely back onto the Avengers' Quinjet.[29]

Seeking Aid

Thor at the university in London, England

After receiving a vision, Thor went to London, England and waited outside the University of London to meet with Erik Selvig. When Selvig came out to his car, Thor asked him for his help in finding the Water of Sight in order to revisit the vision.[29]

Battle of Sokovia

Ultron in Sokovia

Ultron, the artificial intelligence peacekeeping program created by Tony Stark, arrived in Sokovia in order to fulfil his genocidal plan. After capturing Natasha Romanoff, he brought her to his hideout and locked her behind bars. She was horrified upon hearing of his plans. Shortly, the Avengers, now with Wanda Maximoff, her brother, and Vision, arrived in Sokovia to warn the citizens to evacuate. During this time, Bruce Banner and Thor went to rescue Romanoff. After Banner freed her, he turned into the Hulk, and went to find the others, while Thor stayed behind and learned of Ultron's plan to use a device to lift Novi Grad high into the sky, planning to drop it and cause a massive explosion that would destroy the majority of the world, leaving only Ultron and his Sentries.

The Avengers prepare to fight Ultron and his Sentries

Thor then returned to the others and told them to prepare for battle. Ultron then arrived and confronted them, signaling his Sentries to assist him. The Avengers rallied in a destroyed church and fought the horde of Sentries.

When Parker regained consciousness, he found himself in a prison cell with three Dutch football fans in Broek op Langedijk in the Netherlands. After escaping, he asked a local for his phone and called Happy Hogan. Hogan arrived shortly afterwards in a private jet and picked Parker up in a wildflower field.[53]

Battle of London
"London is a beautiful city, but they can rebuild. If I'm going to be the next Iron Man, I need to save the world from an Avengers-level threat."

Spider-Man arrives in London, England

On the jet, Parker created a new suit and told Happy Hogan to rescue his friends. Upon arriving in London, England, Parker jumped off the jet and headed towards the Tower Bridge, where Quentin Beck had launched his final illusion attack in order to gain worldwide public attention. In addition, he used the drones to target Michelle Jones and Ned Leeds, who along with their group, were forced to escape their bus, and fled to safety. However, the two decided to leave the group to protect them, and along with Flash Thompson and Betty Brant, were found by Hogan. After the jet had been destroyed by drones, they proceeded to escape in a nearby museum.

Peter Parker defeats Quentin Beck

Parker destroyed the drones, causing the illusion to end, and confronted Beck. As Beck tried to kill Parker with the drones, one of the drones misfired and shot him instead, killing him. Parker then obtained possession of the glasses again and ordered E.D.I.T.H. to send the remaining drones away. Afterwards, Parker reunited with Jones, and they all went to the London airport and left Europe.

Talos and Soren driving in London

Meanwhile, Talos and Soren who had fallen for Beck's deception and realized it in London called Nick Fury to tell him about it. Talos told him that he had given the glasses to Parker and also that they needed his help.[53]

After Parker's identity was exposed and he was branded as a criminal due to doctored footage released by The Daily Bugle, 10 Downing Street demanded that the United States of America's government pay for repairs to the Tower Bridge.[54] Soon after, news stations throughout Europe, such as SBN reported on the Tower Bridge’s destruction and the revelation that Parker was Spider-Man. Additionally, SBN reported that Interpol had deduced that “Night Monkey” was Spider-Man and that there was political turmoil in New Asgard.[55]
