Go To

Avengers Reassembled is a Coreline story by OrionPax09, taking place after the the events of Operation Endgame.

In the wake of CHIMERA's devastating attack, the various hero teams are attempting to rebuild and recuperate. Unfortunately, not only are tensions rising between the Extraordinary Avengers and the Champions, but the paranoia over another cyber-attack is frustrating the more tech dependent heroes, and CHIMERA's remnants are not idle...

Contains large spoilers for "Operation Endgame".


This work provides examples of:

  • A Million Is a Statistic: Mari is very determined not to fall into this.
  • Battle Butler: An alt of Hayate has been hired as part of the new Extraordinary Avengers staff.
  • Berserk Button: Yamcha hates Saiyans as a result of what they did to Earth in his universe. Although he's been getting better with it through therapy, and has nothing against hybrids, Goku/Kakarot alts send him into a berserk rage.
  • Big Eater: The Goku who trained Steve shows up in the second chapter and has Hayate prepare him a meal. Said meal takes up an entire cart. No one is really surprised by this, obviously.
  • Both Sides Have a Point: The tech-dependency argument has shades of this. On the pro-tech side, we have the point that every role in combat taken up by a machine means that there's one less person capable of getting hurt or killed, that AIs can be programmed into being incapable of betraying them, and that Cap alts should be less preachy due to their powers coming from a tech-based serum. On the other side, there's the point that they need to make sure that they can't be hacked by PROGENY like that again, and that tech-based heroes should at least know basic fighting techniques.
    • This also comes up when debating the merits of hiring a security force or using robots, the former can be killed, or be susceptible to bribes, etc., if not chosen carefully, while the latter can be hacked, but recycled if destroyed.

  • Dangerous Phlebotinum Interaction: The Loshol Charges are a new weapon that replicates the same reaction of Pym Particles and Arpeture Science portal energy that destroyed the original Avengers Mansion. The result is the affected person or object having bits and pieces of it rapidly growing and shrinking at random until it rips itself apart.
  • Destructo-Nookie: Jack and Arcee, with Mari even referring to this trope by name. Quicksilver Toji, when sent to fetch them, is traumatized (and physically worse for the wear) when he returns!
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: Mana tricks Beerus into destroying the Restraining Bolt tech in the Mansion.
  • For Want of a Nail: The main division between the canon DB verse and Yamcha's was Goku/Kakarot not hitting his head in that ravine.
  • Growing Muscles Sequence: The trial group for Michiru's senzu bean shake do this, to the point that Mari's base form is more ripped-looking than her Super Soldier form, and she clearly enjoys the process, though the less athletic trial members only go up to "amateur bodybuilder". For Diana, the effects are even more pronounced than usual in her Hulk form, rendering her not only more ripped, but a full head taller, and she's so wrapped up in the transformation she's unaware that her clothes are ripping off!

  • Hulking Out: Diana does this after testing the senzu shakes. And she really gets into it!
  • Hypocrite: A Tony alt and Mana point out that it's a little hypocritical for Cap alts to be saying that they shouldn't depend on technology when they got their powers from a tech-based serum.
  • I Call It "Vera": Thirty/Thirty's BFG Sara Jane, of course, which gets significant upgrades.
  • I Let You Win: Maria "Thunderstrike" Vincennes (and apparently several other Avengers) believe that CHIMERA's attack on Stronghold was an intentional failure. Sure, a lot of the rank and file human soldiers were casualties, and Hikari, Shinji, and Nadia's arrival did turn the tide, but Maria points out that it being the only hero base to weather and repel their attackers is suspicious, especially since the attacking forces weren't nearly as strong as the other bases, and were used nowhere near as effectively as they should have been considering the strength of the other attacking forces. She then cites a Decepticon tactic as an example of what she thinks they were doing; the Decepticons would attack multiple Autobot bases, but would purposefully leave one base functional, if damaged. This is to gather Autobot survivors there so they could wipe them out at once. And considering that the Decepticons were part of CHIMERA... then again, the story (so far) does not provides solid evidence of this theory being the real deal, but other characters do say that it's something pretty plausible.
  • Interservice Rivalry: Tensions between the Chicago Champions and the Extraordinary Avengers are at an all time high after the CHIMERA attack, with members actually coming to blows a few times. The Champions feel that, since Mari didn't warn them about CHIMERA before they attacked, she was to blame for the many deaths their people suffered. And the Avengers are angry and frustrated that they were all captured and their home was destroyed.
  • Jaw Drop: Kakashi and Korin have this reaction to seeing the Monster (the massive Senzu bean plant Michiru grew). The former's mask even falls off!
  • Jerkass Has a Point: During Mana's scathing verbal attack towards Maria and the SHIELD team, she points out that she's surprised that the team Boxed Crook hasn't stabbed them in the back and fled yet. Fujiko is forced to admit that she has thought about it. She and a Stark alt also point out that Cap alts preaching about not overly depending on tech when they got their powers from a tech-based serum is a little hypocritical.
  • Loyal Phlebotinum: The new "Project Mighty" weapons are bonded to the chi of their wielders, preventing anyone from taking them and using them against their respective owners.
  • Man of Kryptonite: Yamcha can excrete a substance that is extremely lethal to Saiyans.
  • Muggles: The DISK system's category for ordinary humans is jokingly referred to with this term. The Muggle Class is color coded white.
  • Nanotechnology: After CHIMERA fell, the remnant group enhanced its soldiers with powerful nanotechnology.
  • No-Sell: Tai (the AI of Mari's ship, the American Dream) was somehow entirely unaffected by PROGENY's cyber-attack on the Avengers systems, and this has made him the center of a lot of attention as the eggheads try and figure out why and how to duplicate it.
    • Later, Mari, at Goku's behest, strikes the Saiyan in the stomach while in her base form. As you can imagine, it does jack squat to him. Cap Maria doesn't think his clothes were even wrinkled.
  • Origin Story: Chapter Five is Ax's. What kind of thing can an Andalite do that is bad enough for freaking Merlin to go and curse him? Betray his fellow Animorphs and almost cause The End of the World as We Know It-by-General Ripper-Andalites, that's what.
  • Papa Wolf: Doom and Amora's twin children were extracted from her womb and stolen away by CHIMERA. Doom is understandably upset (to the point that he's acting like a mere carbon copy of his canon self), and it's predicted that the responsible parties will be in deep shit when he finds them.
  • Paranoia Fuel: In-Universe: CHIMERA and PROGENY's crippling cyber-attack has left many people paranoid about the possibility of it happening again, and many tech-heroes are not allowed to use their abilities as a result.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: When Mari comes across one of the CHIMERA supers responsible for what happened to Mana, she shoves a "Loshol Charge" down his throat. The result is not pleasant for him. Justified in that the super in question is a Gero Android. During Operation Endgame, Mari fought Gero Androids twice and was quickly defeated both times. Thus she knew that she needed to resort to extreme measures in order to deal with this one. Though she makes no bones about the fact that she doesn't regret doing so in the slightest.
  • Squee!: Korra's reaction to Mari's revelation about the Mewtwo Team Rocket had cloned, and Mari is giving her the option of catching, the Mewtwonite X&Y, and the Mega Ring.
  • Super Mode: A CHIMERA aligned Killer Frost alt turns into one to avoid being frozen solid by Mari, and some of it's powers are apparently Kryptonian level, with any hits she lands on Mari sending her flying. And she's not the only one...
  • Take That!: As explained in the Author's notes below the chapters, the story has several (the explanation above on "I Let You Win" being an example towards Endgame. Joker getting the option for a cure about his disease is another (towards Mass Effect canon in general, mostly)).
    • Continuing from Doctor Shikigami's Monster, the jab at no one growing more senzu bean plants despite how useful they can be, for healing and otherwise.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: When Michiru thinks he's going to have to go back to Xanth for more dragon dung to act as fertilizer for the new "Monsters" Mari has ordered, he's unenthusiastic. When Goku volunteers his students, he is very relieved. Unfortunately, when Kakashi, Korin, and Happosai (the non-perv one that Mari and Thunderstrike know) see the Monster and want to up said orders even more, he is robbed of said relief, and they don't listen to him when he tries to get them to understand the difficulty of growing them (and eventually send Beerus, the freaking God of Destruction to do some "leaning-on").
  • Throw the Dog a Bone:
    • Joker gets several options at treating or even curing his brittle bones (the story do leaves open whether or not he ends up deciding to go for one of those).
    • Hayate learns that for the first time in his life, he's not in debt (because Mari killed the Yakuza that he owed said debt to, and the Avengers swear that they will go to war with anybody who tries to put him in such distress ever again). His response at learning this is to faint.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Mana "Iron Maiden" Kirishima, and a massive one. Turns out that she's an example of the "bad" cases of abducted heroes; she was trapped inside the Chicago Avengers Mansion when it fell and was horribly maimed as a result. Then CHIMERA found her and amputated bits and pieces of her body. Then she was raped and nearly killed by an Alternate of Doctor Light. Now she believes that Cap Mari willingly left her to die in the self-destructing Avengers Mansion (when Mari was really unknowing that she was there, nor had the time to search for her). In addition to this, the core for her AI Sid, her constant companion for all the shit she went through in her own universe, was damaged in the attack and is presently nonoperational. And since Iron Haven is packed, they don't have any room for her to stay and recover, only regular sessions.
    • Doom, as a result of his and Amora's children being stolen from their mother's womb by CHIMERA, is understandably less cordial than he was previously.
  • Uniqueness Decay: Not only is there the big Monster, and plans to make more, but Yajirobe and some others constructed secret senzu bean farms.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Rex/War Machine is told by Spider-Man Kensuke that he's under arrest for violating the anti-tech hero ordinance put in place as a result of CHIMERA's cyber-attack. Since the only reason Rex used his powers was to deal with a fire that was threatening innocents, keeping it under control until backup could arrive, he isn't exactly happy. Kensuke do gets chewed out over that afterwards... alongside Rex, because he hacked Ken's suit jets.
