Avengers Episode #63, Act One (Portfolio Sample}

This is a section intended for inclusion to my upcoming on-line portfolio. It’s from the Starz animated Avengers series. I vaguely recall doing this around 2011/2012. I don’t know what episode it’s for; Wikipedia’s episode listing is ambiguous, I didn’t save the script and have never seen the episode (or any of the episodes) animated. Can any helpful Avengers fans help me out here?
