“So what do you guys do?” the curious bartender of the Goldbrix Tavern asks, his chin ticks upwards to gesture towards the group of uniformed men and women who were dressed as though SEAL Team 6 had a baby with one of those covert organizations that utilizes “neurolizers”.
Hicks looks at the man with a blank stare. ’He must have not gotten the memo.’
He takes a long pull of his beer and, as he places the bottle on the counter top, he smirks before carefully answering, “We wear a lot of black.”
I like to think that both MIB and SHIELD are real, and any time something happens in NY (or London, or wherever else) all of the civilians are neurolized after the event and again after reconstruction (if necessary, depending on damage).
