"Behind Enemy Lines" is the eighth and ninth chapters of The Last Son, Book Three: Changes.
(seeing the Argo for the first time)
Quicksilver: So it's a space-faring muscle-car. Big whoop.
Hulk: Growing Man should watch own smashing; Hulk have own smashing to do.
Giant Man: I'll keep that in mind…
F.O.H. soldier: The only reason I joined up was on account of I got sprung when the F.O.H. busted some of their guys out, a couple months ago; with guys like that Superman around, and psycho-freaks like the Batman, we're safer in jail!
Vinny: Don't have to tell us twice. Jeez, it ain't enough we got mutants to deal with…
Giant Man: I really hate to suggest it, guys, but it doesn't look good….
Hawkgirl: He'll pull through.
Green Lantern: He always does.
Quicksilver: Yeah, you just keep thinking that. (looks to Power Girl) So, if anyone needs a shoulder to cry on…
Scarlet Witch: Don't even suggest it, Pietro!! If you ever say something like that ever again..!!
Quicksilver: Why not?! You're all thinking it!! Fine; Super-Dork's a tough mother, I admit it, but that was a nuke! Nothing could have survived..!
Hulk: No. Cape-Man okay. Cape-Man strong, like Hulk; big bomb not strong enough to hurt Hulk, so not strong enough to hurt Cape-Man.
Power Girl: You're sure you're okay?
Superman: Aside from a mild case of energy-indigestion, that is.
Power Girl: Good; it serves you right for doing something so dumb.
Hulk: Hulk not smart like Banner, but even Hulk know this wrong.
Magneto: So, Fury sends his lackeys to enforce this travesty, does he?
Thor: Peace, friend.
Iron Man: This doesn't have to get ugly. Just settle down…
Magneto: …and watch you subjugate my people for a crime we are innocent of? I think not!
Magneto: (to Iron Man) You come against me with a suit of metal? No wonder we're called Homo superior.
Colossus: (to Magneto) You threatened my family with your powers, but let us see how well you fight like a man!!
Sabretooth: Figured it'd come to this, Short-Stuff.
Wolverine: Good to know.
Winter Soldier: I love this job!
(he and and several F.O.H. soldiers began firing)
Flash: We always meet the crazies on this job.
Superman: Batman, there are two steam-lines just above their heads…
Batman: Shot-in-the-Dark maneuver.
Flash: I love that one!
Winter Soldier: (to Superman) Not bad, kid. All you need is a shield, now.
Winter Soldier: You're deluding yourself, kid. You honestly think that a pretender like you can change the world?!
(Superman catches Winter Soldier fist)
Sinister: Well, you've certainly led us on a merry chase, but I'm afraid the jig, as they say, is up. Surrender now, and you may yet live.
Spyke: And end up as your lab-rats? Pass.
Sinister: DNA from a living specimen is preferable, but if you insist…
(Hulk is fighting off several rioters)
Hulk: Hulk want smash, but Banner say no. Stupid Banner.
Captain America: Back in my day, what was good for America was good for everyone…and now…I just don't know.
Superman: Well, maybe that was true, back then, but today, I think it's reversed: what's good for everyone is good for America.
Captain America: You're wiser than you let on, son. Hard to believe you beat me out in the 'Nuclear-Bonehead-Maneuver' category!
Superman: How do you figure that?
Captain America: Well, at least I had enough sense to jump off the missile after I'd sabotaged it!
Superman: Hey, pal, unlike you, I was at least marginally sure that I could survive it! (grimaced) A fact which has probably put me in the dog-house.
Captain America: (shrugs) It happens.
Red Skull: Ve vill continue as planned. HYDRA vill reign supreme.
- First appearances of Cameron Hodge and the Red Skull.
- Carol Danvers becomes Ms. Marvel in this story and obtained her powers from the Kree spaceship in "Polarity".
