Fanfic: Harry Potter and The Invincible TechnoMage
Harry Potter and The Invincible TechnoMage
is a Harry Potter
Crossover Fanfic written by Clell65619
. The plot involves a 5-year-old Harry and the Dursleys visiting Stark Enterprises. Dudley accidentally causes a chain reaction that kills the Dursleys but Harry is saved by accidental magic. Tony Stark
at first shocked that someone survived the explosion eventually decides to adopt Harry giving him the name he is known by throughout the fic: Harry Stark.
At its heart the story is a crossover between Harry Potter
and the Marvel Universe
with increasing cameos from Marvel outside of Iron Man
. Eventually Harry is found by Dumbledore and invited to Hogwarts on his eleventh birthday. Harry is reluctant, but having been told of the dire consequences should he not go eventually convinces him that he is needed at Hogwarts.
Somewhat controversial, so Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement
should be applied.
Tropes shown in this work include:
- Badass Adorable: Harry Stark, Franklin Richards.
- Body Horror: Lucius Malfoy after being subjected to brutal torture in response to his handing the Diary to Luna Lovegood. There is a reference to Lucius caressing the "flawless bone white surface of his 'new face'".
- Brick Joke: When Sirius is waiting to meet Tony he has a slinky and a yo-yo to keep himself occupied. Later on Snape mentions that these two toys were fads during his school days and that he tried to set a school record for most steps descended by a slinky.
- The Cameo: Tons and tons of Marvel Universe characters are referenced, both well known and obscure. There are also a few brief but specific references to DC Comics characters like Batman and Green Arrow.
- Cats Are Superior: Millicent Bulstrode's cat certainly think so.
- Children Raise You: Tony is noticeably more mature and self-controlled than he is in Marvel canon due entirely to having raised Harry.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Harry seems like a budding example of one in this story with the way he talks to Hermione and Padma Patil.
- Curbstomp Battle: The Marvel Universe outclasses the Potter Verse in almost every way in this story. Not only can a Muggle like Iron Man breach the security wards of Hogwarts (finding it with the help of Captain Britain and Meggan, two magical Marvel Universe heroes), Harry was trained by Doctor Strange of all people, effectively eliminating his need for a magical education. Also, magical culture is shown to be stagnant and backwards, filled with ridiculous amounts of Fantastic Racism and corrupt to high heaven. The two reasons the Potterverse shows up at all are because Harry can't avoid the prophecy, and because (per Word of God) even though there exist god-like beings (as well as actual gods) in the Marvel Universe, many of them focus more on the Galactuses and the Doctor Dooms, while leaving lesser heroes to take care of lesser villains, which Voldemort counts as in this world.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Tracey Davis' grandfather orders her to seduce Harry in order to ensure the Potter fortune ends up in the Davis' family's hands. Any actions Tracey takes as just being Harry's friend are mostly taken as in-roads towards fulfilling those orders, without taking into account that, maybe, she cares not for the orders.
- For Want of a Nail: Due to being raised by Tony, Harry ends up in Ravenclaw instead of Gryffindor. Hermione does as well. Also, see Children Raise You.
- Friendly Enemy: Harry manages to turn Draco, Crabbe and Goyle into these, and Draco in this story on some level seems to see Harry as a Worthy Opponent.
- Guile Hero: Harry.
- Hopeless With Tech: Hermione and Daphne attempt to take apart a computer to see how it works- key word here is "Attempts." Hermione immediately hits a stumbling block because the instruction manual doesn't say what direction that screws are supposed to turn in, and was using the wrong type of screwdriver. Daphne, in the words of Stuart Granger, "was magical-raised and is terrified of their house and everything in it."
- Hypocritical Humor: Sirius brings a woman to his (and Remus') house in Hogsmeade, with the obvious intention of having sex with her, when they find a drunk Remus in there. The woman complains to Sirius using a wrong name, and Sirius is angry that the woman does not know his name... and he himself does not really know the woman's name.
- Kidfic: The premise of the story is Tony Stark raising Harry Potter.
- Killed Off for Real: Peter Pettigrew. In order, he was: mauled by a cat while he was in his rat form, dropped from the Hogwarts train while it was moving, probably was in the middle of a field for hours before being found, taken to a hospital, where he was subjected to a large series of operations, and then, when he tried to leave the hospital, he transformed again into his rat form, without realizing about the steel screws in his bones. He ends up bleeding out, with several of his bones broken. There Is No Kill Like Overkill, indeed.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Lucius Malfoy pays dearly for handing Tom Riddle's diary to Luna Lovegood.
- MagiTech: After Reed Richards from the Fantastic Four discovers how Potter Verse magic works, Tony uses this knowledge to design Iron Man armours that can work within Hogwarts' anti-technology field (such as the exo-skeleton he gives Harry). Later on, Muggle electronics such as cell phones and CD players are introduced to Hogwarts, causing much frustration for Dumbledore. Finally, Harry's senior project is to design a magical computer that partially involves replacing circuits with ancient runes.
- Dumbledore doesn't like that the electronics can now run on Hogwarts' magic, which is draining the wards of the school. Chandrahas Patil, Parvati and Padma's father, had built a tower outside of Hogsmeade on property he owned, and both he and Tony are partners in a Magical Consumer Electronics Shop in Diagon Alley. Filius and Snape tell Dumbledore once the novelty wears off, they'll be back to normal.
- Mugging the Monster: A hick wizard that had been living in NYC by robbing rich teens makes the mistake of taking Franklin hostage since he deemed Neville and Harry, both wizards, to be a bigger threat. Though Harry by himself can decimate half of the city before he is stopped, Frankin, being an omega class mutant, can destroy all the world if he loses control.
- Muggles Do It Better: Reed Richards utterly defies his own trope (while playing another one dead straight) and makes Harry-Potter magic functional around technology, and Tony manages to make a cheap energy source out of it.
- Nice Hat: Sirius gets one.
Sirius: It seems the ladies love a boat, and the ladies love the Captain of a fast boat the most.
Harry: You're the captain?
Sirius: As far as they know. [points to his hat] I've got a hat. Never underestimate the power of a good hat.
- Noodle Incident: Apparently Reed Richards' robotic butlers have a tendency to go nuts.
If this one ran amok and tried to kill them like the last two had, she and her loving husband would be having words about the capabilities he designed into his robotic domestics.
- Not So Harmless: Captain America taught Harry to take advantage of the fact that people usually underestimate young children. In a flashback Harry is seen kicking a would-be kidnapper's ass.
- Oh, Crap:
- Tony gives a joking version of this when he hears that Sirius Black has a Slinky. It Makes Sense in Context.
- Another one given as a reaction to Sirius, a group of terrorists show up at a charity dinner to do general terrorist/robber things. Sirius, trying to play himself off as a costumed hero, decides to call himself "The Wizard," inadvertently taking the name of a fairly notorious Marvel Supervillain. The reaction subsides when the terrorists/robbers realize that it isn't the same Wizard that they were thinking of, but comes back when Sirius beats them all.
- Harry's usual reaction to Steve Rogers's Training from Hell.
- Once Snape realizes Master Alchemist Esteban Corazón de Ablo was the one who belittled him in front of the staff, he puts one on (as he had de Albo's text which included brews he didn't evey try to make himself). Dumbledore gets one as he finds de Albo's found Neville's the student that inspired the Alchemist to teach again ("The boy has potential, a sense of wonder, and a willingness to learn I've rarely encountered over the years.")—and is considering NEVILLE for an apprenticeship (which Dumbledore himself never got from de Albo).
- Hermione, Neville, Padma and Tracey when they are kidnapped by the Kree and realise they are in orbit.
- Papa Wolf: Tony Stark becomes this to Harry. Even deciding to put Hogwarts under threat of orbital bombardment after Madame Web warns Harry about the impending Triwizard.
- Power Limiter: Harry has one for his Chaos magic.
- The Prankster: The Weasley Twins are as usual and Neville, after he gets alchemy training from Master Alchemist Esteban Corazón de Ablo, letting him brew a potion will let him animate anything it touches for half an hour to his commands. This is a big role in him helping his classmates get the better of Kree who kidnap them: make duplicates of Spider-Man action figures that respond to Neville.
- Screw You, Elves!: The tone of this story is very much on the side of Marvel and very harsh towards Wizarding Culture. Not individual wizards or witches, mind you, but to the culture itself, which is portrayed as ridiculously racist and stagnant.
- Not to actual elves, though- those Harry is rather nice towards.
- Shout-Out: There's a brief reference to Gotham City from the DC Universe put in as an in-joke. Also, Harry is reading a Garfield book while on trial by the Ministry as they attempt to declare Tony Stark's adoption illegal.
- Straw Loser: Severus, Dumbledore, Fudge... pretty much the fic is a continual "You suck" to the Magical World and the Potterverse.
- Take That: In addition to the discussion of "Who would play the cast of an Iron Man Movie" mentioned above, Tony scoffs at the idea that Jarvis would be played by an A.I and not a human being like the real Jarvis (who in the comics is the Battle Butler of The Avengers).
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Grab any chapter. ANY CHAPTER. If you don't find at least three by the end you are reading the wrong fic.
- ¡Three Amigos!: The Ravenclaw trio of Harry, Hermione and Padma.
- Too Dumb to Live: The Dursleys. Dudley causes an accident that causes not only their deaths but others that were trying to stop them.
- Dudley is almost excusable—he's six. Worse is the fact Vernon actually hindered attempts to get Dudley to stop.
- What Does This Button Do?: Dudley takes this Up to Eleven. Leading to explosive results, and kickstarting the story.
- You Can't Fight Fate: After the Wizengamot led by Fudge, Umbridge and Dumbledore try to separate Harry from Tony in order "to fulfill his destiny," The Boy Who Lived is not about to help do so. After this, Madame Web tells Harry he'll eventually have to face Voldemort, but does he face his parents' murderer in three years, or after Voldemort has consoldated power in Britain (and none of Harry's acquaintances survived it)? For the sake of his friends, he goes back (but not without some guarantees on both sides this time).
