"I just gave it to you"
She listens when Cap is giving the recap. When he was done she says quietly, "How come I wasn't given this information..."[/b]

Continuing, the Captain adds "we should offer to hold a press conference sometime today as well, probably sooner rather than later."
He turns from facing those at the table to look at 'Star. "The media is already clamoring with questions about what happened yesterday, and we need to show them the Avengers are still standing."
CUT SCENE #1
The Daily Bugle.
Inventor-turned-part-time-journalist Jack Phanzone sips from a coffee mug as he walks over to his usual desk, only to find it broken in half. Standing over it and staring for a moment, Jack eventually sets his coffee mugs down on the desk, only to watch it slide down to the floor, through the valley created by the left and right sides of his desk. Standing there a moment longer and staring at the rapidly spreading pool of coffee on the floor at his feet, Jack asks, of no one in particular. "I'm guessing I missed something while I was gone?"
"Venom and a couple of the Avengers had a fight here the other day. It's been pretty busy and nobody had a chance to finish all the cleanup. Desks for part timers, guests, and visiting freelancers were pretty much at the bottom of the priority list...you understand..."
, Editor Kate Cushing quickly explains while travelling through the office.
, Jack replies.
Suddenly, a rumble shakes the floor, accompanied by the sound of breaking glass. There are several excited screams and people begin to flee through the office area. Jack thinks he heard someone say "scorpio"
during the ensuing exodus of reporters and newspaper staff.
Reaching down to the shattered remains of the desk before him, Jack picks up a phone receiver, and holds it to his ear...only to find the cord dangling from the handset has been severed, probably by whatever smashed the desk. "Somebody call the authorities, please"
, Jack yells at the moving wall of people while calming scanning the area beyond them for the closest broom closet or men's room.

CUT SCENE #2
The William's Museum.
In an off-limits side hall, a series of velvet-lined display cases are revealed, each containing a vast array of gaudy jewelry and other gaudy baubles.
"Everything is ready for tonight's premiere, madam. The museum is very excited about debuting the collection"
, and older, balding man in a suit and tie says to someone off panel.
, replies a female voice. Stepping from the shadows, we see the source of the reply: a platinum blonde haired woman, dressed in a white body suit, with a holstered pistol at her left hip.
"I will have my own security team in place, to complimet the museum's, this evening. My entire team, however, will not be here..."
, she says, gesturing to a group of individuals standing behind her, "...as we have some other pressing business to attend to this evening."
