Captain Britain would like to track down the SHIELD agent who had the clarity to retrieve the silvered broadsword (name TBD), the courage to use it, and the quick-thinking to toss it to him. He’d like to thank her for her actions and bravery, recommend her for a commendation for her actions (can Woo help with this?), and keep an eye on her career. He senses great potential.
Will do! (Shit, now I need to give her a name….)
