"Mission accomplished. The Abomination will remain in his cage, for now. Apparently, the Consultant outdid himself. Ross got so mad he tried to have him removed from the bar."
Phil Coulson to Jasper Sitwell[src]

The Consultant is the first in a series of Marvel One-Shots, released on the Thor Blu-ray on September 13, 2011. It is set after the main events of Thor and during the final events of The Incredible Hulk. It focuses on Phil Coulson and Jasper Sitwell's attempts to out-manuever the World Security Council's orders.


Agents Phil Coulson and Jasper Sitwell conspire to keep Emil Blonsky out of the Avengers Initiative.


Sitwell Coulson

Phil Coulson walks into a restaurant where Jasper Sitwell is eating breakfast, and informs him that the World Security Council wishes Emil Blonsky released from prison to join the Avengers Initiative. They see him as a "war hero" and blame his fight in New York City with Bruce Banner on Banner himself. They order S.H.I.E.L.D. to send an agent to ask General Thaddeus Ross to release Blonsky into their custody. The two agents decide to send a patsy to sabotage the meeting, so Ross will refuse to release Blonsky. At Sitwell's urging, Coulson reluctantly sends the consultant: Tony Stark.

A disgraced Ross sits drinking in a bar when he is approached by Stark, who ends up annoying Ross so much that Ross tries to have him removed from the bar. In reply, Stark buys the bar and schedules it for demolition. The next day at the restaurant, Sitwell arrives at Coulson eating breakfast. Coulson informs him that their plan worked and that Blonsky will remain in prison.
