    Summary

    If the not-a-present Tony Stark received from Gene Khan on his nineteenth birthday was a puzzle, it was dwarfed by more urgent and dangerous events. Starting with the explosion of the helicarrier, where Captain America's supposedly brain-dead body had gone missing. Was the man suffering from amnesia Iron Man rescued a few hours after the wreck the Captain? If not, who was he? And why were they so attracted to each other? Had SHIELD kept Cap alive simply to extract the serum? And why was a Doombot, not to mention Madame Masque, trying to break into Tony and Howard's home?

    Summary

    As a villain, Tony wasn’t a big believer in maintaining long-term rivalries with heroes. He had heard enough horror stories of villains who got so caught up in defeating their counterparts their plans ended up slacking, turning lazy. Having a designated hero to fight could seem simpler on the surface, but in the long term, it just got messy. And if there was one thing Iron Man, twice-named most influential villain of the world by People’s magazine (take that, Gotham city), definitely didn’t need, was for his plans to get messy because of heroes who couldn’t stop sticking their noses where they didn’t belong.

    However.

    The Captain had been a different case.

    Summary

    “Here,” Steve says, in guise of explanation. Tony’s expression is puzzled. He takes his head off Steve’s shoulder, straightening his posture.

    “Is that for me?”

    “Yeah,” Steve breathes. His stomach is clenching in anxiety, which is ridiculous – it’s just a fucking ugly scarf, Tony knows so many people, he’s got to have gotten worse gifts before. “It’s, uh. A bit late.”
