The Avengers face off against the rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. battlion, and succeed primarily because Sauron wasn't as dead as they all thought he was. (A bullet through the head just isn't as effective as it used to be.) They learn that this battalion has enslaved the native peoples, and was using them to mine vibranium to stockpile for illegal weapons. Before they could break it up on their own, the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier attacks and wipes out the installation in one salvo. Iron Man's armour protects the group, and Director Hill transports them safely away. Once they reach safety, they learn from Tony that the S.H.I.E.L.D. files they've been given were tampered with, and that the list of villains in the Raft include 14 individuals who were officially dead.
