Time travel was a tricky thing. Even with the aid of something like the Time Stone, it doesn’t always work out quite the way you’d expect.
When Strange used the Time Stone to send Tony Stark back in time, he’d intended on sending Tony back in a way that would merge him with his past self, allowing him to be able to relive his life and use that extra time to prepare for the coming war.
Only, things didn’t quite go according to plan. Instead of merging with his past self, the Time Stone simply took Tony and dropped him down into the world. And – as Stephen later explained – to keep the world from breaking under the paradox of two of the same beings, there were a few… minor changes.
Not that she was going to let something like a genderswap get in the way of her plans. If anything, this worked better for Toni. She could do what needed to be done from the sidelines. Let Tony stay the face of Iron Man. Let him deal with the team, and the press, and everything else like that, while Toni was free to work from the shadows.
She was going to do whatever it took to make sure her planet was protected this time around. Even if it meant allying herself with the very last person she’d ever expected.
