It had been a snatch and grab job. The real target: Bruce Banner. Grabbing Agent Coulson was just icing on the cake for Hydra. They'd both been tranquilized, Bruce obviously with a few more, before being transported to a secret underwater facility deep in the Atlantic trench.

When Bruce dissolves back in, all he can see is bright lights. He has the sneaking suspicion he's stretched out on a table, which doesn't bode well any way you look at it. There's a constant line of drugs being fed into him so Bruce doesn't have too much of a chance of getting mad. He kept dozing on and off, the lights changing now and again over his head.

They keep asking him questions, poking him...Bruce remains as quiet as possible, not wanting to say anything. Hopefully, someone will be able to find him, but he didn't hold out too much hope for that.

Coulson hadn't been deemed exactly dangerous enough for similar constant sedation. Which, granted, put up against the Hulk, one could see where someone would have made that judgment. Taken on its own merits, though? It wasn't exactly a bright move. In fact, one could go so far as to say it was extremely shortsighted.

He returned to consciousness well before he opened his eyes, taking in his surroundings with his other senses and figuring out what he could while calmly and very surreptitiously managing to work his way out of the restraints they were using. It was rope and duct tape. He was almost insulted.

When he was confident of his range of motion, he then stirred, blinking his eyes open. The operative they had guarding him approached with a malicious laugh. That laugh died pretty quickly when the agent struck quickly and incapacitated him.

In short order, there was an entirely different man tied to a chair (much more securely) and a seeming Hydra operative stepping out into the hallway.

He had to find Dr. Banner and soon.

The place was vast, quite impressive to be hidden this far underwater. A few hallways gave away the fact that they were underwater as they had thick windows to the outside world. Which also showed the outside world was an unfriendly place of mines and booby traps for those who didn't take the usual means of transport.

Hydra troops and scientists mill through the different corridors. There were a few larger labs at the far end of the facility, one of which was holding a dazed Bruce Banner.

Coulson moved along the corridors using one very important tactic in getting around in enemy territory unnoticed: acting like you belong there. The full-face covering of your standard Hydra uniform certainly didn't hurt matters.

He did ultimately find the lab they were holding Bruce in, 'relieving' one of the guards on duty with a nod and a standard Hydra salute, standing on guard and taking in the remainder of the guards and interrogators in the room. He needed to act, but he needed a game plan first.

At the moment, they were drawing more blood for testing. Bruce was secured to the table by a number of fabric and metal shackles at his wrists and ankles.

"Don't spose you could leave some for me?" Bruce mumbles with a bitter smile. "I'm feelin' a little low." Nobody responded. Bruce may be down but he was trying to get a reaction as best as he could. Unfortunately, these guys knew better than to make him angry. Hulkbusters could take a page or two from their handbook, Bruce muses to himself, his eyes sliding closed again.

That interrogation voice is back and he cracks a lid open to look at them. They've been trying to get his assistance in working with his DNA structure to replicate the results. They'd tried a few truth serums but his body chemistry just burned through them too fast. Looks like they were going to try again with a much larger dose....and a much larger needle. "I ordered blood..." Bruce snipes back tiredly as they inject him.

While the attention was largely on Bruce, Coulson took the opportunity to take down the other guard at the door with a silent choke hold. He carefully left the guy lying on the ground and quietly moved towards the supply shelves as inconspicuously as possible, mentally offering thanks to Bruce for keeping the attention on himself.

Bruce looks like he's checked out again as the serum starts working on him. The scientist bending over him to prod him with more questions. It looks like Bruce might start answering them too, his head lolling to the side with a worried look on his face, eyes still closed. "...no...don't...too unstable..."

And that's the point at which that scientist is laid out with a syringe of sedative to the neck. A couple of people on the fringes of the clump around Bruce have already been taken down in a similar manner, but it still leaves a few to go.

Thankfully, the element of surprise is definitely on his side at the moment, because none of them were expecting an attack at this point, and certainly not by what seems to be one of their own with no alerts going.

The few that are left don't miss that last knock out as the interrogator scientist slides to the floor, out cold. Two of them try to jump the fake Hydra guard and take off his mask.

Bruce, for the moment, is blissfully ignorant that someone's trying to save him.

From: [personal profile] sonofcoul
Oh, yes, Hydra goons, by all means, please come at him two at a time. Very convenient. Keeping his mask on is really a bit immaterial at this point, so he doesn't much care that the mask comes off shortly, given that the guy who does it has his hands a bit full of mask when Phil grabs hold of his head and slams it into the other one's.

Bruce is vaguely wondering if he's imagining the sounds of a scuffle or if it's all in his head.

As the two incapacitated goons crumple to the floor, the last one left standing decides he'd better do something intelligent...and go for the alarm on the wall.

Really, about time one of them did something reasonably smart. Of course, Phil promptly grabs the gun he inherited along with the uniform and shoots the runner in the leg.

Their hand freezes inches away from the gun handle on their hip. Debating if he should or shouldn't. "We are Hydra, cut off one head..."

"Not again..." Bruce groans from the table. He had lost count of how many times he'd heard that spiel.

Bruce cracks his eyes open blearily. That sounded like...

"...Coulson s'at you? Or am I hearing things again?"

And at that moment, the Hydra goon goes for his gun, thinking Coulson is going to turn and look at Bruce.

He's still having a hard time concentrating but Bruce tries to keep his eyes open to make sure this DEFINITELY was Coulson and not some other trap. The fact he was setting him free helped his drug addled brain process that this was a real rescue.

"Don' have to ask me twice. I've had enough of this cocktail..." Whenever he gets a hand free, Bruce grabs tiredly at Coulson's arm to make sure he's real before rubbing his face with a relieved sigh. "...I hate drugs."

"I bet." He finishes unhooking Bruce and takes half a step back. "Give me one second, kay? I'm going to go lock the door, just in case."

He heads over and does just that, sliding a table over to block it for good measure.

"Once one of these guys comes to, the truth serum should come in handy for finding us a way out of here."

Bruce has a crooked smile at that suggestion. "I like the way you think." About time they started giving out some of their own medicine to these guys. Bruce wasn't a violent man himself but some people rubbed him the wrong way. Like when they kidnapped him and tied him to a table.

Bruce holds his head in his hands, taking deep breaths as he tries to clear his head. His inner monster was still sleeping off the drug cocktail in his system. "Give me a moment...I can help once I get my legs under me again." Of course, Bruce doesn't know they're underwater at the moment.

Coulson nods, walking between the various downed Hydra personnel and retrieving any and all weapons. "Take your time. Even if they discover that we're not exactly as incarcerated as they had planned, the door's an effective bottleneck should they try to assault our position. I should be able to hold them off for a while if needed. We're not going to do anything until you're back to at least reasonably functional."

Another deep breath as he lifts his head, looking a little more awake. "Helps when your metabolism is used to picking up cars for a living." Bruce gives Coulson a slightly confused look at his outfit but it was a pretty good disguise. "....nice suit."

In fact, he had an idea forming already. "You still have the face plate for that?" If it works for Coulson, they did have quite a few downed Hydra agents here. And Bruce needed a new shirt anyway. "We could walk out of here under their noses."

sonofcoul: (Considering my options.)
From: [personal profile] sonofcoul
He gestured to one of the fallen mooks. "Technically he has my face plate, but yes, it's certainly retrievable. And it's a good idea. Strategically, though, it'll still be better to at least wait until we get a route and procedures out of one of these guys." He glances up at the ceiling. "This is an underwater facility and I'm pretty sure they don't just let anyone on the craft to get out of here."

Bruce suddenly looks a little uncomfortable as he swings his thin legs over the side of the table to sit on the edge. "....how far underwater?" He's got this claustrophobic feeling creeping up on him. No way he could Hulk out and keep Coulson safe if they were really far down.

"What would you suggest then?"

sonofcoul: (I can be matter-of-fact.)
From: [personal profile] sonofcoul
His answers are spoken plainly and matter-of-factly. "Pretty far, from what I managed to see, and just from the construction and how it's set up to withstand pressure. It doesn't make it that much more difficult to get out of here, all things considered. It just delays it for a while until we find out the procedures required. Using their uniforms is a good idea. It should make it easier as long as we manage to avoid a general alarm."

He frowns a bit. "Of course, that depends on their schedules, which we don't know. When someone comes to relieve the guy who was guarding me, they'll figure out pretty quickly that something's up."

Bruce smiles faintly too. "Got to love it." Time to start moving though, their time was limited. Bruce leaves the truth serum to Coulson, busying himself with switching clothes with the nearest agent. They're a little big, but he can tuck everything in well enough to not be noticed.
