Chairperson Hank Pym looks a little surprised, but not annoyed, as EnergyStar stands up and begins spouting directions to the team. Most of those present immediately jump to their feet to response to her directions.
Leadership and teamwork combined can be startlingly effective.
As folks clear the room, Hank asks some of the heroes to stay behind

Radical Warrior uses the Avengers' crime-files to quickly supply a one-page "QuickStats (TM)" print-out on each of the villians involved (Beetle, Klaw, Rampage, Goliath/Power Man, Sunstroke, and Tiger Shark), looks them over, and then passes these sheets to Blackbird before rushing out the door on the way to Central Park. Blackbird quickly scans these sheets as a primer to
