- "Welcome to the inside of my mind, Sheeple."
- ―Thurston Koenig
Rescued by S.H.I.E.L.D.
While performing his usual one-man show at The Soul Patch, Thurston was interrupted by the arrival of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Daisy Johnson and Davis, who had been sent to pick agent LT Koenig. Indeed, the Koenigs were in danger after an assault on Billy and Sam Koenig, so S.H.I.E.L.D. decided to take the other siblings under their protection. Thurston refused, unwilling to have anything to do with the organization he despised, but his sister used her I.C.E.R. on him and he was brought aboard the Zephyr One.
Having woken up, Thurston complained about being forcefully dragged on the plane, but LT quickly chastised him for his behavior and they eventually reconciled. Thurston remained on the plane while the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents went to the Labyrinth in order to retrieve the Darkhold. When Billy finally returned after being kidnapped by the Watchdogs, Thurston greeted him with compassion. After that, Thurston left the plane and returned to his normal life.
