Earth’s mightiest heroes must come together and learn to fight as a team if they are going to stop the mischievous Loki and his alien army from enslaving humanity.

Enough! You are, all of you are beneath me! I am a god, you dull creature, and I will not be bullied by…
– Loki
Puny god.
– The Hulk

Stark, we need a plan of attack!
– Steve Rogers
I have a plan: attack!
– Tony Stark

Thor, what’s his play?
– Steve Rogers
He has an army, called the Chitauri. They’re not of Asgard or any world known. He means to lead them against your people. They will win him the Earth. In return, I suspect, for the Tesseract.
– Thor
An army. From outer space.
– Steve Rogers
So he’s building another portal. That’s what he needs Erik Selvig for.
– Bruce Banner
Selvig?
– Thor
He’s an astrophysicist.
– Bruce Banner
He’s a friend.
– Thor
Loki has them under some kind of spell. Along with one of ours.
– Natasha Romanoff
I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He’s not leading an army from here.
– Steve Rogers
I don’t think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy’s brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him.
– Bruce Banner
Have a care how you speak! Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard and he is my brother!
– Thor
He killed eighty people in two days.
– Natasha Romanoff
He’s adopted.
– Thor

Big man in a suit of armour. Take that off, what are you?
– Steve Rogers
Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.
– Tony Stark
I know guys with none of that worth ten of you. I’ve seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You’re not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you.
– Steve Rogers
I think I would just cut the wire.
– Tony Stark
Always a way out… You know, you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.
– Steve Rogers

A hero? Like you? You’re a lab rat, Rogers. Everything special about you came out of a bottle!
– Tony Stark
Put on the suit. Let’s go a few rounds.
– Steve Rogers

Call it, Captain!
– Iron Man
Alright, listen up. Until we can close that portal, our priority’s containment. Barton, I want you on that roof, eyes on everything. Call out patterns and strays. Stark, you got the perimeter. Anything gets more than three blocks out, you turn it back or you turn it to ash.
– Captain America
Want to give me a lift?
– Hawkeye
Right. Better clench up, Legolas.
– Iron Man
Thor, you gotta try and bottleneck that portal. Slow ’em down. You got the lightning. Light the bastards up.
– Captain America
You and me, we stay here on the ground, keep the fighting here. And Hulk?
– Captain America
Smash!
– Captain America

Superheroes? In New York? Give me a break!
– Stan Lee

Kneel before me. I said, KNEEL!
– Loki
Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It’s the unspoken truth of humanity, that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life’s joy in a mad scramble for power, for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.
– Loki
Not to men like you.
– German Old Man
There are no men like me.
– Loki
There are *always* men like you.
– German Old Man
Look to your elder, people. Let him be an example.
– Loki
You know, the last time I was in Germany and saw a man standing above everybody else, we ended up disagreeing.
– Steve Rogers
The soldier. A man out of time.
– Loki
I’m not the one who’s out of time.
– Steve Rogers

I have unfinished business with Loki.
– Thor
Yeah? Get in line.
– Clint Barton

What’s the stat, Rogers?
– Tony Stark
It seems to be powered by some sort of electricity!
– Steve Rogers
…well, you’re not wrong.
– Tony Stark

That man is playing Galaga! Thought we wouldn’t notice. But we did.
– Tony Stark

I’d sit this one out, Cap.
– Natasha Romanoff
I don’t see how I can.
– Steve Rogers
These guys come from legend. They’re basically gods.
– Natasha Romanoff
There’s only one God, ma’am, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that.
– Steve Rogers

Doctor Banner, now might be a good time for you to get angry.
– Steve Rogers
That’s my secret, Captain: I’m always angry.
– Bruce Banner

Are you an alien?
– Security Guard
What?
– Bruce Banner
From outer space, an alien.
– Security Guard
No.
– Bruce Banner
Well then son, you’ve got a condition.
– Security Guard

If it’s all the same to you, I’ll have that drink now.
– Loki

The Chitauri are coming. Nothing will change that. What have I to fear?
– Loki
The Avengers. That’s what we call ourselves; we’re sort of like a team. “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” type thing.
– Tony Stark
Yes, I’ve met them.
– Loki
Yeah, takes us a while to get any traction, I’ll give you that one. But let’s do a head count here: your brother the demi-god; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breath-taking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins, and YOU, big fella, you’ve managed to piss off every single one of them.
– Tony Stark
That was the plan.
– Loki
Not a great plan. When they come, and they WILL, they’ll come for you.
– Tony Stark
I have an army.
– Loki
We have a Hulk.
– Tony Stark
I thought the beast had wandered off…
– Loki
You’re missing the point! There’s no throne, there is no version of this where you come out on top. Maybe your army comes and maybe it’s too much for us but it’s all on you. Because if we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we’ll avenge it!
– Tony Stark

Do not touch me again!
– Thor
Then don’t take my stuff.
– Tony Stark
You have no idea what you are dealing with.
– Thor
Uh, Shakespeare in The Park? Doth mother know you weareth her drapes?
– Tony Stark
This is beyond you, metal man. Loki will face Asgardian justice.
– Thor
He gives up the Cube, he’s all yours. Until then, stay out of the way, tourist.
– Tony Stark

This is just like Budapest all over again.
– Natasha Romanoff
You and I remember Budapest very differently.
– Clint Barton

You really have got a lid on it, haven’t you? What’s your secret? Mellow jazz? Bongo drums? Huge bag of weed?
– Tony Stark

What just happened? Please tell me nobody kissed me.
– Tony Stark
We won.
– Steve Rogers
Alright. Hey. Alright. Good job, guys. Let’s just not come in tomorrow. Let’s just take a day. Have you ever tried shawarma? There’s a shawarma joint about two blocks from here. I don’t know what it is, but I wanna try it.
– Tony Stark

Stark, are you seeing any of this?
– Steve Rogers
Seeing, still working on believing.
– Tony Stark

What’s the matter, scared of a little lightning?
– Steve Rogers
I’m not overly fond of what follows…
– Loki
