Avengers: Age of Ultron Prelude - This Scepter'd Isle is a comic set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is set before and during the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Synopsis

The Battle of New York is over, but the war has just begun! S.H.I.E.L.D. is taking a vested interest in artifacts recovered from the cataclysm...but they're not the only ones! Dive deeper into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with this prelude to the upcoming film Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron in the stunning Infinite Comics style!

Plot

With the Battle of New York concluded, the Scepter that was used by the Asgardian war criminal Loki is given to S.H.I.E.L.D. scientists Nicholas Cooper and Mark Smith for study. Smith, who abhors his scientific position, is approached by secret HYDRA leader Wolfgang von Strucker to join HYDRA, which is working within S.H.I.E.L.D. Accepting Strucker's offer, Smith steals the scepter and kills Cooper, bringing it to Strucker's facility in Sokovia, a European country embroiled in constant conflict.

Harnessing the scepter's power for a variety of effects, such as powering paraphernalia ranging from their own technology to Chitauri tech recovered from New York City, Strucker's second in command Doctor List approaches a group of Sokovian rioters, offering them the power needed to save their country. Among the rioters are twins Pietro and Wanda Maximoff. The Sokovians agree, and each undergo a number of tests where they are exposed to the scepter's energy; out of all of the test subjects, only the Maximoffs survive.

When Captain America unveils HYDRA's existence to the world in the Battle at the Triskelion, Strucker remains confident that their work will continue. Strucker and List monitor the Maximoffs, who have both unlocked extraordinary superpowers as a result of the experiments.
