Damage Control is a branch of S.H.I.E.L.D. specializing in assessing and controlling unique incidents. They act both from the physical and media standpoints.
Duel in Los Angeles
A few minutes after Tony Stark's battle with Obadiah Stane, Stark and James Rhodes were taken to a secret base where they encountered S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson. Coulson told them that Stark's fight against Stane was good, but that he needs to learn how to become a real fighter. While they spoke, the Damage Control team was present both at the highway and Stark Industries Headquarters to contain and repair all damage done.
The following day, before a press conference for Tony Stark, a TV news ticker-tape mentioned that Damage Control Officials were to issue a report on the Duel of Los Angeles within the following days.
