--Roberto Da Costa (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Good evening, ladies and gentlemen of Da Costa International. It's my pleasure to stand before you today in what have proven to be... Trying times. I know what you've been thinking--How can I manage to look so good even in the face of so much adversity? Good genes and smart fashion sense. But what we're facing is much bigger than just me. It's bigger than all of us, maybe the whole universe. As we all learned things are coming undone all around us. Things we have no control over. Bad men are doing bad things to prevent the ending of everything. Thought it may be hard to accept, a war is being fought on our behalf while we wait in bated breath to find out if we will still exist tomorrow. And me? I've had enough sitting on the sidelines. It's time to take action--It's time to fight for the future. Quote2.png
--Roberto Da Costa (Earth-616)

--Roberto Da Costa (Earth-616)
Quote1.png My name is Roberto Da Costa, and I am a citizen of the United States of America. And you can never take that away from me. Quote2.png
--Roberto Da Costa (Earth-616)

Quote1.png Give 'em Hell, X-Men! Quote2.png
--Roberto Da Costa (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Nothing. That's the problem. I mean, look at you. It's been months since we've seen each other, and I was expecting you to be a mess. Depressed, out of shape, bad hair... worse complexion. But look at you. Happy, healthy, exceptionally fit... how does that happen? Quote2.png
--Roberto Da Costa (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You want me to give up mutant paradise for -- what exactly? A space empire that spans thousands of solar systems, which conceivably represent a limitless amount of action and adventure, which sure, I was born for... Is that it? ... I guess I could hang out for a bit. Quote2.png

Yeah, yeah. You call that a mad scientist? I've seen madder science in my daughter's school fair, son. And I ain't impressed by you, either. So you're a bad enough dude to save the President -- so what? I write my own name in every four years. You made John Garrett look stupid? His mustache got there first. It's pitiful. You want to deal? Want your people in from the cold with a backrub from Uncle Sam? We need more from you, fella. We need the big crazy.

And what's bigger and crazier than A.I.M. vs. S.H.I.E.L.D., you ask? How about... A.I.M. vs. A.I.M.? Every iteration. Every splinter group. Every yellow jumpsuit -- gone. In just 24 hours. Starting here -- starting now. Sit back and watch, General... because the grand finale is about to begin.
