In The Avengers (2012), during the first meeting aboard the helicarrier, Thor warns Bruce Banner to mind his manners when speaking of Loki, because he's Thor's brother, to which Black Widow replies:

He killed eighty people in two days.

Thor responds, "He's adopted" [Insert laugh here].

I assume Loki killed the guy whose eye he scanned and/or scooped out, and I know that Hawkeye killed a couple of people, but what about the other 77 or so people?

Who are these eighty people, and when did Loki kill them?

The toll likely includes those trapped in the collapse of the base at the start of the film, which Loki caused. Here is some dialogue from the script:


                      (WALKIE TALKIE)
       Director? Director Fury, do you copy?

                      NICK FURY
       The Tesseract is with the hostile
       force. I have men down. Hill?


      Agent Hill climbs out her JEEP, which is sandwiched in, but
      luckily, not her.

       A lot of men still under, don't know
       how many survivors.


The eighty victims probably included "the men still under" of which there were "a lot".
