"I don't think you're taking this assignment very seriously."
"That's funny. I was just thinking the same thing about you. While you've been in here gathering video clips, I've been out investigating."

Item 47 is the third in a series of Marvel One-Shots, released on the The Avengers Blu-ray on September 25, 2012. It is set right after the Battle of New York, and features many references to The Avengers.


A couple find a Chitauri Gun after the Battle of New York and proceed to make some very negative decisions with it.



Benjamin Pollack and Claire Wise, a down-on-their-luck couple find a discarded Chitauri Gun, referred to as 'Item 47' by S.H.I.E.L.D., and decide to rob a few banks. S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jasper Sitwell is assigned by Agent Felix Blake to retrieve the weapon and "neutralize" (kill) the couple; during the briefing, the two reminisce about the recently deceased Agent Phil Coulson. Sitwell tracks the couple down and the subsequent confrontation results in the motel room where the couple is staying to be wrecked, and all the stolen money blown to pieces. Instead of killing the couple, due to how Pollack made the 'dead' Chitauri gun work, Sitwell invites the couple to join S.H.I.E.L.D.; with Pollack assigned to the R&D 'think-tank' to reverse engineer the Chitauri tech, and Wise becoming Blake's assistant (Blake not being too keen on the idea).

Pollack's work at S.H.I.E.L.D. is to refine the Chitauri technology first into a more human-friendly design, then into heavier, vehicle-mounted weapons, and finally into an artillery piece.
