Hawkeye, the Black Widow and many S.H.I.E.L.D. agents successfully destroy two office buildings that belonged to alien creatures called the Chitauri. Later, the two heroes and the surviving agents return to the Triskelion. There, Hawkeye and the Widow are introduced to the other Ultimates. Fury congratulates his new recruits, who will be upgraded into the team and introduced to the public later in the week. Fury also introduces his team to Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, who now work for S.H.I.E.L.D. in their Shadow Team. In exchange for their services, Fury will release political prisoners. So far, Pietro and Wanda have done what was required from them, and today saved Hawkeye and the Widow’s life on three different occasions. Later, the team is briefed about the Chitauri’s origin, so that they know what they are up against. Fury needs the whole team for this. Captain America is missing from the briefing. Fury asks his agents to locate him. They eventually trace Cap in Chicago, where he is about to have a rumble with Hank Pym.
