E.G.G Q&A: Avengers v.s E.G.G Part 1

Updated on November 6, 2014


This Q&A session contains FULL SPOILERS for Avengers v.s E.G.G Part 1: Cracked. If you have not read it yet, please click here to do so now!


When Tony Stark suddenly shows up on Mother Egg, everyone is excited until they discover that he's not there to have a good time: He's there to shut E.G.G down. After Josh failed to prove that E.G.G was a division of S.H.I.E.L.D, Tony labeled them a terrorist organization and told them to basically shut down, or be shut down. Nick Fury contacted them and let them know that he intentionally scrubbed all affiliation with S.H.I.E.L.D in case something like this happened, and refsed to inform the Avengers because their trust in him was more important than E.G.G. Refusing Fury's offer to relocate, Josh organized Eileen, Acacia, Julian, and two other E.G.G agents, Allyson Whitcomb and Agent Becket, and went down to Porter Park to confront the Avengers.

All of the Smartest People are Mad

“If we could skip this,” Tony interrupted. “I’m here on business.”

“Whoa,” Josh said, putting his hand on Tony’s shoulder. “Who peed in your cornflakes Stark?” Tony aggressively knocked Josh’s hand off of his shoulder.

“How about you cut the crap and tell me who you are and what this place is.” Tony demanded. Josh backed off.

“Ooookay…” Josh said, “Somebody flipped the serious switch. I’m Joshua Westbrook, and this is the Experimental Government Gadgets division of S.H.I.E.L.D, you can call us E.G.G.”

“I can call you terrorists!” Tony shouted. Eileen and Acacia were alerted.

“What are you talking about?” Eileen asked.

“What exactly do you build here?” He asked.

“All kinds of things!” Acacia exclaimed. “Repulsor Blasters, Bamf Vests, Cosmic Gauntlets, Thwip Blasters…” Tony glared at and her smile faded. “Was it something I said?”

“Repulsor Blaster namely.” Tony replied. “Powered by my coveted arc reactor?”

“Please,” Josh said. “We’re nowhere near figuring out how to replicate your arc reactor, but we’re pretty close!”

“That’s exactly what I mean!” Tony yelled. “The reason I stopped making weapons is because people were stealing them, attempting to recreate them, and taking innocent lives!”

“Now wait a minute Stark,” Josh said. “We make weapons for good!”

“There’s no such thing as a good weapon.” Tony growled.

* * *

Well, this surely isn't the friendly Tony Stark we all know and love, as indicated by Josh's urine in the cornflakes allusion. Anybody that knows the first thing about Iron Man knows that Tony Stark doesn't like weapons (not after his 3rd world field trip, anyways). So when he discovers that E.G.G is making them, and some pretty dangerous ones at that, he gets to be a little on edge. His problem with E.G.G, though, is that they aren't sanctioned by any form of government. Or so he believes...

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

“That’s Director Westbrook to you! I don’t even know why you’re here Stark, we are fully sanctioned by S.H.I.E.L.D!”

“Are you?”


“Then prove it.”

“Fine!” Josh said. He looked around. “I’ll prove it, uh, Eileen! Get our authentication notes.”

“Those are on the Helicarrier.” She said.

“Okay, get a file Fury sent us.”

“He sends those digitally, and you erase them once you’re done with them.”

“Because Fury said not to store secure S.H.I.E.L.D files on our hard drive!”

“One convenience after another.” Stark said. “Anything will do. A S.H.I.E.L.D logo on the wall?” Josh looked around to see none, only E.G.G logos.

“I, uh…”

“How about you contact Fury?”

“Right! Duh!” Josh rushed over to the computer. “Get ready to put your tail between your legs Stark!” He punched some buttons on the keyboard and the monitor went fuzzy. “What? That’s never happened before.” Josh tapped a few buttons. “Director Fury? You there? Do you read me? Hello?” Acacia and Eileen looked at each other with confusion and concern. “Okay, the comm is off, but talk to Fury, he’ll…”

“You see that’s the thing.” Tony interrupted. “I already did. And he said he’s never heard of anything called E.G.G in his entire life, and that all weapons are developed and stored on the Helicarrier.”

“What! No! He’s lying, we work for S.H.I.E.L.D!”

* * *

Talk about getting sold out! Fury completely threw Josh out in the open with his pants around his ankles! This is where I thought it would be good to show just how cold and calculating S.H.I.E.L.D really is. It's not like Fury is setting Josh up for a fall, but he realizes the importance of keeping E.G.G dis attached from S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury doesn't have the luxury of putting his personal feelings before the good of his organization. The thing is though, Josh always knew in the back of his mind that E.G.G was a division of S.H.I.E.L.D, and is only now noticing that there is no evidence suggesting so. This is likely to cause for some questions... and major concern.

E.G.G Organize!

“This is wrong!” Eileen shouted. “So what, we’re just supposed to let Stark shut us down?”

“Yes.” Fury replied.

“NO!” Josh shouted. “This is our home, everyone’s home! We can’t leave! We won’t! We’ll fight the Avengers themselves if we have to!”

“Now don’t go talking stupid.” Fury said. “Did you really think I’d just hang you out to dry? I’ve already got your backup base being prepped.”

“Backup base?”

“Yes. You’re being relocated.”

“What? No! What about Mother Egg?”

“That thing was always a liability. A floating target.”

“Oh, I’m sorry, and the Helicarrier isn’t!”

“Know your place, agent.”

“Director. And thanks, but no thanks Fury. We’re not leaving. And no one’s gonna make us.” Josh slammed the laptop shut. “Not even the Avengers.”

“So what’s the plan?” Julian asked. “You know, assuming you have one.”

“It’s up to us.” Josh said. “The six of us.”

“Whoa, wait a minute!” Agent Becket said. “We didn’t sign up for…” Allyson nudged him.

“This is our home too.” She said. “And we’re gonna fight for it.” Josh smiled.

“Well, I’ve got one thing to say.” He held his fist into the air. “E.G.G, organize!”

“Organize?” Acacia said. “Really? That’s the best you could come up with?”

“We’re dead.” Eileen groaned, slamming her head on the table.

* * *

Well, assemble was taken... Anyways, we see that Josh is not ready to give up Mother Egg and is willing to fight the Avengers to keep it! Now I'll bet your wondering, 'why the two random agent?' Well... they were in the room, and the Avengers have six people, so why not?

The Avengers!

Porter Park had been cleared. All of the citizens had been pushed behind a barrier, and the park had been occupied by the Avengers. Captain America stood on a bench looking into the sky with a pair of binoculars.

“Doesn’t look like they’re coming down Tony.” He said. Iron Man approached him from behind.

“They will if they’re smart.” He said. “Their two hours is almost up.”

“Shall I strike them down the thunders of Asgard?” Thor asked, tapping Mjolnir against his hand.

“Can we hold off on the fireworks boys?” The Black Widow said, leaning against a tree. “It’s bad enough we’re all standing out here in the open.” She looked to the awestruck citizens, everyone trying as hard as they could from behind the barrier to get pictures with their cell phones. “Speaking of which,” she said, activating her earpiece. “I thought someone was supposed to be watching for potential threats, Clint.”

“I see better from a distance,” Hawkeye replied on the other end, perched on a nearby roof. “The crowd’s clean, nothing but fan boys and bystanders. Checked the trees, a few angry squirrels, but that’s about it… no one on the roofs, except Banner, who keeps eating my potato chips.” Hawkeye glared at Dr. Bruce Banner who had a bag of Lays in his hand.

* * *

Holy shell! The Avengers in full force have assembled and are ready to take down E.G.G! I was just really happy to have them in E.G.G, I mean, honestly, it was only a matter of time, so why not sooner rather than later! Now, to my fellow comic nerds, I know you're all going "Where's Ant-Man? Black Panther? Vision! And is Hulk going to Hulk out or what!?!?" Well, I decided to go with the movie six because those are the only Avengers most of the free world knows. But fear not, my friends, because more Marvel heroes are coming later! And yes, Hulk is going to Hulk out. It would be stupid if he didn't.

Next Episode

Things intensify as the battle between the Avengers and E.G.G heats up. It's all out war as both sides deliver everything they've got to the fight. Who will win? Will anyone in E.G.G survive? Or are the Avengers going to get more than they bargained for in this fight? Find out tomorrow, November 6, in the second part in this three part E.G.G spectacular event, Avengers v.s E.G.G Part 2: Scrambled!

Well, I think I should ask the obvious question here: Who will win?

See results

Don't Forget!
