“Excuse me,” Coulson said politely. “Commander Fury asked that we run this meeting without him. We have disturbing reports about one of our top secret project items being stolen out of a remote bunker.”
He pulled a remote out of his lapel pocket and clicked it at the center of the table. A three dimensional hologram appears of a cruel eyes young woman in red Armani picket up a casket and walking out of a room full of scientists without attracting any attention. Katara wondered if it was just some kind of new technology being produced in Republic City.
“Is he doing that it again?” Toph snarled, “Screw you, Coulson. You really need to stop being an asshole about briefing me with pictures I can’t see.” She slammed her fist on the table and all the metal object in the room started to vibrate.
“Watch it, Blind Bandit,” Katara said carefully. As much as she would love to tell off the billionaire inventor again, she couldn’t afford to lose her professionalism. “Aang’s control over the Avatar is a little light right now He’s had a bad morning.”
Aang mostly buried his head in his arms, head wavering between his usual pale skin color and the bright blue glow associated with the brutal, raging Avatar. There was only so much Xanax they could give him while they adjusted him to the future. They couldn’t afford for him to transform into the Avatar again and start destroying their base.
Zuko mumbled something quietly. Zuko had been brought in from Ember Island. Katara’s hadn’t even seen him until the briefing. She’d only been told that he was Zuko, the God of Fire and Thunder which had to be a code name, just like how Suki Kiyoshi was codenamed Tessen and her brother Sokka was codenamed Boomerang.
“You wanna say that again, Fire God Guy?” Sokka asked.
“That’s Azula.” Zuko repeated louder. “My sister. She was relocated from Asgaard by my Uncle for her safety. She had become a danger to herself and others. What is she doing theiving on Midgard? Ty Lee and Mai said they were in a healing facility on Vanaheim.”
Coulson smiled, “That’s your first assignment, Avengers. Capture the Goddess of Lightning and bring her in for questioning. Commander Fury expect you to work together. Captain North, you’re in charge. Good luck.”
Katara looked at the other Avengers in the room and clutched her blue shield for luck. This was going to be impossible, even for a super soldier like her.
