"No wonder you chose this... this tomb to work in!"
"Well, the Radisson doesn't have three layers of lead-lined flooring between S.H.I.E.L.D. and that cube."
Erik Selvig and Hawkeye[src]

Loki's Hideout was a temporary research facility established by Loki on Earth, in order to find a way to open a stable portal using the Tesseract.


"Where did you find all these people?"
"S.H.I.E.L.D. has no shortage of enemies, Doctor."
Erik Selvig and Hawkeye[src]

Loki established a hideout with the help of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents that he had used his Scepter to take mental control of upon arriving on Earth. He had Clint Barton enlist S.H.I.E.L.D.'s enemies to his cause, amassing mercenaries, scientists, weapons and equipment to fulfill his plan of using the Tesseract to open a portal and conquer the planet.

Loki contacted The Other using the Scepter to inform him about his progress, taunting him that all his claims are nothing more than words until the Chitauri were under Loki's command.

Erik Selvig, under Loki's control, acted as the head scientist in the construction of a device to stabilize the portal, having learned from the Tesseract itself how to do it, and for the need of iridium to complete the device. Barton, the unwilling right-hand man of Loki while under his control, asked Selvig about the Iridium, having investigated where it was located and how to obtain it. Loki asked Barton what he needed to fulfill his task, and he answered he needed a diversion, and an eyeball.

The device was taken from the hideout and put inside a truck, where Selvig finished it adding the Iridium as a means to stabilize the portal, and it was taken to New York City.[1]
