    Summary

    Howard Stark – the senior, not the junior – has his name changed at Ellis Island. He tosses his Yiddish consonants to the sea breeze and never tries to find them again. A century later, Tony Stark lies in a cave in Afghanistan, convinced that this is going to kill him.

    Summary

    He names himself Stark because he wants it to be true. Stark, he figures, is the American for Shtark, which is Yiddish for Strong, and that’s the one thing the thirteen year-old-boy who will one day be known as Howard Stark Sr. wants to be.

    Neither Russia nor America were Prauge; perhaps here, if they wanted Strong Men, they'd have to become them themselves.

    Summary

    Aunt May's looking right through him.

    Peter knows she’s about to say something, so he starts first. “I have to stay behind. I can’t get the kid killed, May.”

    “And that’s all this is about?” Her words strike Peter like needles. She looks into his eyes knowingly, pityingly, and it’s too much for him to bear.

    Peter B. Parker hates Peter Parker’s stupid face, and his stupid hair, and his stupid lack of a middle initial, and that’s all there is to say about that.
