|~ Agent Coulson to Pepper Potts.|

Coulson survived the attack, with Tony and Pepper defeating Iron Monger, and he latter talked to Stark afterward.

|~ Coulson to Tony.|
|“||You made my men, some of the most highly trained professionals in the world, look like a bunch of minimum wage mall cops. That’s hurtful. In my experience it takes someone who’s received similar training to do what you did to them. Why don’t you tell me where you received your training? Pakistan? Chechnya? Afghanistan? You know, you strike me more as the soldier of fortune type.||„|
|~ Agent Coulson to "Donald Blake"/Thor|
A few days later, Jasper Sitwell saw on the radar that another wormhole was coming in, and Coulson led a small team to the area. The group found a giant automaton, that attacked them until Thor was able to claim his hammer, and destroyed it. Surviving the attack, Phil realized that "Blake" was Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, and confronted the prince. Thor agreed to protect Earth, but asked that Jane Foster get all her equipment back, which the agent agreed. Later on, Coulson and Hawkeye took what was left of the automaton, and presumably returned back to S.H.I.E.L.D.
