    Summary

    Tony had never wanted a son because he didn’t want to be a father.

    Because, fathers, to Tony, were strict, cruel and condescending. They lacked a belief in their children, talked down to them and made them cry at night. Fathers ignored their sons, fathers berated their sons, fathers posed for cameras with their sons as if they were proud of them, but immediately turned their backs once the reporters went away.

    Tony didn’t know how to be any other kind of father.

    Summary

    “Are you comfortable? Can we get you anything?” At Fury’s almost condescending inquiry, the kid pursed his lips—which, while not much of a reaction, was still something. “I know a few people with enhanced strength and healing. In my experience, that comes with an enhanced metabolism, and if I recall, it’s been at least twelve hours since you last ate. You must be starving right about now.”

    “If you answer a few questions for us,” Natasha picked up, “we’ll bring you something to eat. Sounds simple, right?”

    The kid opened his mouth, closed it, ran his tongue across his lips, then leaned back in his chair. “I can starve.”

    Despite Steve's best attempts, Hydra survived and is recovering; however, during what appeared at first to be a routine raid, the Avengers discover what—or who—may be the key to dismantling the organization for good. Unfortunately, these things are never easy, as their most promising lead refuses to cooperate.

    Summary

    In exchange for the lives of his friends, family, and millions of people, Peter must give up memories - their memories of him.
    He is left alone in a world where no one knows he exists; where none of his friends, family, or the Avengers can remember who he is.

    After finally moving on with his life, a new threat arises - bringing Peter back directly into the Avengers' path. He is suddenly forced to meet a challenge that he doesn't want to face, and in doing so learns exactly what it was that made him a target in the first place. He tries to run, but he can't escape.

    And no matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to forget his past.
