(Heroes for Hire II#2 (fb) - BTS) - A thirty year veteran of the NYPD,
Det. Benny Simmons was on friendly enough terms with Misty Knight that
she referred to him as her "old friend."
(Heroes for Hire II#2) - Det. Simmons phoned Misty
Knight, who then informed her Heroes for Hire teammates that they would
need to make a pit stop before confronting Captain America. Meeting
with Det. Simmons, the Heroes for Hire learned that Simmons had been
watching an abandoned building, thinking it was a meth lab. By the time
Simmons and his officers had gotten a warrant, the building had been
once more abandoned but while leading the Heroes for Hire into what
appeared to be a former organ harvesting lab, Simmons commented that it
appeared that the harvesters had moved from human organs to something
else. After seeing the lab, Misty asked Det. Simmons for one of the
organ-harvesting boxes and the Heroes for Hire prepared to visit Reed
Richards to get his input.
