"The lighter in his hands felt cold and sleek, like retribution. Like Tony’s armor. He flicked on the flame and watched it dance, his other hand hovering over the small light. Bruce closed his eyes, savoring the burning sensation, the way the pain washed over his body and made his knees weak.
This was his body. It was his body, and he wasn’t any crazier than normal, and he was home. He was home, he was home, he was home…"
After the events at the hands of Mara, Bruce begins to heal from the psychological torment he endured. It shouldn't be hard to put himself back together. He's done it before, and this time he actually has support. Of course, nothing ever could go as planned for Bruce Banner. AIM isn't dead, and Bruce's past rears its ugly head at the worst possible time, unearthing old friends and enemies alike. Steve can't move on from what he witnessed, and Tony is left trying to be the grounding presence Bruce needs, even as his own tumultuous feelings leave him off-balance.
