Written for a prompt on Avengerkink:
I read a fic the other day that mentioned how they know that Captain America's metabolism is 4 times faster, that he is 800% more resistant to drugs, etc etc. I want a fic that explores how they know that. It's up to anon whether to set it in the 1940s or the present, but I'd love to see Steve being experimented on, how long he can run, how he reacts to different drugs and poisons, how long he can go without food, etc.
“I am not experimenting on Rogers, you wretched bastard,” Howard snarled back. “He's a good man, a soldier, not a lab rat.”
“The man volunteered to be part of an experimental procedure, Stark, so in that sense he already is a lab rat.”
- Part 2 of A Splintered Tomorrow
Bruce is a man who's spent the last few years of his life on the run, yet somehow Tony Stark convinces him to stay in one place long enough to feel comfortable. Predictably they work well together, each falling into a normal routine of coexistence. But Bruce isn't a man who's known for getting what he wants, and monsters can be a hard thing to control. Even in impossible situations.
