We Didn't Start the Fire

The media is already calling her ‘Iron Man’, which is probably a clue that the suit’s silhouette is a bit androgynous… but in retrospect, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. She is done with this nonsense where everyone walks on eggshells around her.

Steve Rogers opens his eyes to the afternoon light.
A woman is sitting in a chair next to his bed. She glances up as he struggles to sit up and says “Hello…” in this husky contralto that is as dark and complicated as a tall glass of stout. She closes her book and places it cover down in her lap, but he can read the spine. It says ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’
He wonders if he’s still dreaming and if that is some bizarre message from his subconscious.

In an effort to help him adjust to the 21st century (or failing that get him out of his apartment), Fury convinces Steve Rogers to take a small job body guarding a business woman as she attempts to make contact with a notorious fugitive.
There are two minor complications.
The fugitive is Doctor Bruce Banner and he is on the run from the US military, but that's nothing compared to the body he's guarding:
Antonia Stark, CEO of Stark Industries, and (unbeknownst to the public or Steve) Iron Man.
