SHIELD Director Nick Fury speaking- this is an official red alert for ALL Meta-Humans and costumed vigilantes. Three months ago, the street-level hero Spider-Man was engaged in battle with his nemesis, the alien creature code-named Venom. Venom is a symbiote, a parasitic creature that resembles a liquid goo, and requires a living host. During the battle, Venom...multiplied. At first, only Spider-Man himself was infected- he had once worn the Venom symbiote itself, and had control over this "child", but as we're seeing now...he wasn't alone.
New York is infected. Under Attack. These Symbiotes have multiplied at an unprecedented rate, and now they're all of our problems. We've quarantined the city, but the infection is growing at a pace faster than we can contain. Outside of the obvious monsters running about the damn streets, any single citizen could be infested, and just waiting for the change to trigger, and outside of "line them all up and shoot everyone in New York", we're running out of options.
So we need you. Right now, I don't care if you're a criminal, or a hero or if you have problems with SHIELD...this is bigger than all of that. We need to work together to keep New York from falling to this alien infection. If you're hearing this...please respond.
