Mermaiden boarded a plane with Avangarda. When they all sat down, John Wall asked Claire:
"Alright, listen. I'll go straight to the point. We all have some sort of backstory. Redjacket and I are SHIELD agents, 3D-Woman is made of two girls and a pilot. How did you become the Mermaiden?"
"I was born like this. My mother, Jeanne was a lifeguard on Tahiti. One day she ran into the water to save the drowning person. Day as always. But then she was kidnapped by some sort of merman war prince. That was my father. He refused to return mom to the surface. Luckily, his sister, Estera, was really kind. She secretly came back to the island. That's when my mom became pregnant with me. Aunt Estera took care of us. She made this magical golden circlet to be able to live on land with us. However, she knew my father would come for us both. When he did, she fought him with various weapons made with water. Trident against trident, sword cutting through skin with incredible speed and shield for protection. She had an upper hand. She eventually killed him piercing his head inside out. She came back to the ocean to take over the reign and make sure the people of the sea won't bother us. Aunt gave my mother her headpiece for safekeeping and left. My mom gave it to me when I was old enough as Estera wanted. So, that's it. This is my first job as a big league hero."
"We aren't neccessarily big leaguers." said John. "But what matters is that we are not alone in this fight."
After the team arrived in Dubai, they were picked by the flying limousine. As they were flying over the skyscrapers, Maria and Sara were taking photos. They arrived at the tall building with golden glass panes.
"That's where that guy live? Whoever this is, they must be rich." said Claire in awe. They landed on a platform. Gabe told the women to put on something to cover their hair and John suggested using the codenames. Claire made golden scarf for herself with water and the twins transformed into 3D-Woman. They were welcomed by a fat Arabian with long black beard and a formal suit.
"Ah, Redjacket. Welcome back. How are your parents? Was the travel nice?" he began to say.
"Yes. Abdul, I am happy to see you too. My family is well, how about yours?" after (not so) small talk, consistent with Middle Eastern tradition, Gabe said "We don't have much time. This is John Wall, 3D-Woman and Mermaiden. Avangarda, meet Abdul Nasrallah, emir of Dubai. We need to speak with Golden Vizier."
"I know." said Abdul seriously. He lead Avangarda inside. They all saw a vault with two Iron Man suits. One was looking like Iron Man Armor Model 8 . However, it had white body, forearms and boots with golden face, arms and thighs. It also had red eyes and triangle on the chest. The other one looked more familiar.
"Is that... Iron Man Armor Model 1 MK III? The original?" asked 3D-Woman.
"Indeed, it is. I bought it from Stark Museum 10 years ago. It was the first equipment of Golden Vizier." said Nasrallah. "I showed it on Expo as soon as I purchased it. But we were attacked by terrorists. Luckily, somebody used that Armor to save us. That was the first appearance of our gold-plated hero. Over the years, his armor was upgraded by himself. The second one was based on Silver Centurion but the whole amount of these armors is top secret."
Abdul used biometric scan to open a secret room. He let Avangarda in there. "Now, you are all going to meet Golden Vizier face to face. Not many people had these privelege. I hope it is worth it. Omar!" he said. The young man with a short cut and a moustache walked to them. Abdul introduced each member of the team to him. "This is Avangarda. They need your help with Anti-Ultron."
"I know father." said Omar. John Wall was shocked.
"Woah, woah, hold on." he said. "We are going to war. And we're taking this... 18-year-old?"
"I am twenty." said young Nasrallah. "And don't worry. I am the smartest man on Middle East. You won't be disappointed."
Suddenly, John Wall's phone called. He picked up. It was Henry Cash.
"Tank Hank? What do you want?"
"Your help, Wall. Anti-Ultron is attacking more countries. His sentinels attacked capitals of Venezuela and Brazil. S.H.I.E.L.D is trying to find a way to disable them. We hope you can help us."
"Listen, I can't talk right now. Let's meet in..." he looked at Gabe, asking where the third recruit was. "On S.H.I.E.L.D sub-orbital observatory No. 909. Over Pacific."
"Deal." Bravado hang up.
"Alright, Golden Vizier. You're in. Now, let's hope you can help us hack something."
"Hack is my second name, Agent." he said. He took a white and gold suitcase and put on another Armor. It had same color scheme as the second one but looked like a fusion between Silver Centurion and Extremis Armor. "Let's go."
