    Summary

    The world keeps pushing him, demanding, because what he did wasn't enough. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, but that wasn't enough, wasn't ever enough.

    Tony Stark was tired. But he had a planet to protect, even if everyone laughed at him whenever the prospect of alien invasions was brought up. He could count on one hand how many people he could trust, which was disheartening but then, what else was new?

     

    Or,

     

    In which Tony does not, in fact, intend to take over the world.

    ...unfortunately, everyone else missed that particular memo.

     

    [gradual divergence from canon, starting at the end of Iron Man 3. In which it's Tony's self-awareness, rather than his support system, that becomes a cryptid sometime during Phase II.]

    Summary

    The vibranium shield was Steve’s pride and joy. It was a symbol of protection, of justice, and it could smash its way through Nazis and aliens alike.

    As it turns out, it could also smash through several layers of gold-titanium, and the human sternum, ribcage, lungs, and heart beneath it.

     

    Steve kills Tony in Siberia, and the world is woefully unprepared when Thanos arrives not long after. As a last insult to the defeated Avengers, Thanos resurrects their betrayed and murdered former comrade, but his creation turns on him and defeats him. What’s left of the world celebrates, but damage has been done that can never be undone and Tony is… changed. Rhodey is determined to prove that it doesn’t matter: what makes Tony Tony is still there, and they’ll work through anything else.

    Summary

    “It’s been a while since I had a student,” muses the man. “Last few were a couple of shitheads. Still.”

    And Lisa thinks, I’m not dead yet. And then, I’m not dying today.

    Or:


    Stick finds an orphaned kid with enough grit to survive a gang shoot out. Taking her on as a student in no way endangers his life, because she doesn't have a surviving murderous father, no, really.


    Matty has a thing or two to say about it, though.

    Summary

    ‘What doesn’t kill us just makes us wounded, right?’ Thomas said.

    ‘Absofuckinglutely,’ Stef agreed, with bottomless depths of sincerity.

    ‘Or gives us enhanced senses,’ Matt said, looking every bit as cocky as the statement implied.

    Stef smacked the back of his head, which, in Foggy’s opinion, was more than fair.

     
    Matt and Foggy return to Columbia where plans have been put in place for Matt to no longer hide his enhanced senses and abilities. Fortunately, they have a whole new collection of supporters on their side.

    Summary

    Olympus has fallen.

    The second Gigantomachy has ended far differently than the first, and in Gaea's triumph, the world has been torn apart. But the Fates have seen what ends their failed meddling have brought, look on at the dead—and undo what should never have happened the only way they possibly can.

    Perseus Jackson, son of Poseidon, is returned to his twelve-year-old self, memories intact and determined to save everyone he can. But he is not alone.

    The Moirai underestimated the strength of the Lord of Time when stealing his power, and there is something about this particular demigod brat that intrigues him. . .

    Perseus Jackson came roaring to life with a violent gasp, green eyes wild. After a moment of panicked flailing and struggling to breathe, his fear-filled gaze settled upon a girl with blonde hair and stormy grey eyes, her face stern and unimpressed.

    "You drool in your sleep."
