WHiH World News
WHiH World News, a TV channel based in Atlanta, sent one of his news crew to cover insurgent attacks in the area of Al-Kut in Iraq, knowing that Iron Man would appear in the area as soon as he had knowledge of the situation via the broadcasting of the attacks.

Chase of Grant Ward
Noticing a woman reading a book pretending to read a book, Ward approached a young woman, Eliza, and her son Graham, who were struggling to carry their bags. Giving a fake name, Ward befriended the mother and child, offering to help them and boarding the same bus, headed for Dallas.
However, inside the bus, Eliza asked Ward to join them during the travel, but Ward noticed the same woman with the book and told them that he would rather sit in the back. Ward went down the aisle and asked Bobbi Morse if he could sit with her.
Ward seemingly flirted with Morse about riding a bus instead of flying, and reading a book instead of enjoying the sights, which Morse said was her excuse to travel in a bus. Ultimately, Ward revealed that, though he was impressed, he knew she was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent because he noticed she was exactly on the same page of her book than when she was waiting outside.
Ward showed Morse the explosive vest he was wearing, and told her to keep reading trying or saying anything, or he would detonate the explosives. Ward then asked the driver to open the door, as he seemingly took a wrong bus, leaving Morse behind and unable to follow him.
Ward boarded a bus headed for Boston while Morse called Melinda May to inform her that her cover was blown, praising Ward's skills. Morse then contacted Lance Hunter, who was disguised as a southern man in the same bus headed for Boston, to inform him that now he would have to follow Ward.
