* CompositeCharacter: Peter does eventually [[spoiler: take his MCU role of being Tony's protégé as Spider Man]] but WordOfGod states that he is based on his ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' counterpart. Indeed the only reference made to his school life refers to Gwen Stacy, a major character in the ''Amazing'' series, who has yet to appear within the MCU, as opposed to a member of Peter's class from Homecoming.


Added DiffLines:

*** In addition Tony is completely unaware that his efforts to protect the world are leading him down a path to World Domination.


* MythologyGag: In ''Film/SpidermanHomecoming'', Peter covers for his superheroing by claiming to be an intern at Stark Industries. Here, he actually is.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: Sorta. WordOfGod states the young boy in ''Film/IronMan2'' was Peter Parker but the character doesn't make a proper appearance until ''Civil War''. Here, Peter's an intern at Stark Industries back during ''Age Of Ultron''.

Added DiffLines:

* WholesomeCrossdresser: It's implied that the [[NoodleIncident fashion week of '97]] included Tony wearing a model's dress on the runway, leading to magazines printing a "Who wore it better?" series of articles.

Added DiffLines:

* SelectiveObliviousness:
** Many of the Avengers that would eventually make up "Team Captain America" (Natasha and Steve in particular) remain completely oblivious to both how much Tony Stark contributes to the group and how incredibly busy he is. Unlike Clint, Natasha, Steve, and Wanda, Tony has a day job: running a Fiction500 which any CEO could tell you is not a simple 9 to 5. Though he's since made Pepper CEO, Tony still invents most of their products when he's not improving the Iron-Man suit, organizing relief efforts for areas caught in Avenger business, dealing with the other Avengers' various screw-ups, and building a planetary defense system for the inevitable alien invasions.
** Natasha's first impression of Tony Stark was formed when he was dying of palladium poisoning, causing her to view everything he does through the lens of a showboating, irresponsible playboy. For example, she gets upset at Tony's "narcissism" making Sam and Wanda's recruitment into the Avengers a mere footnote in the paper, never considering that as a former member of HYDRA, Wanda should be kept out of the spotlight.
** Tony's self-esteem issues keep him from realizing that for all intents and purposes, he's the leader of the Avengers. Even though he houses them, handles public relations, and supplies all their gear, Tony only views himself as a "consultant". As a result, he's baffled that everyone from news reporters to the World Security Council contact him for anything regarding the Avengers.


* BunnyEarsLawyer: The entirety of Stark Industries from R&D who blow things up several times a day to Accounting which not only has a monopoly on drinking games, but also holds the company record for most alcohol consumed in one sitting. Former SHIELD agents who start working there quickly realize that as unusual and eccentric as Tony Stark is, his entire company is as well.



* DidntThinkThisThrough: Natasha is shown to have never considered what would happen to the loyal SHIELD agents when she and Steve dumped all of SHIELD's files online. In Bucharest, she's visibly shocked to recognize several of Tony's "security detail" as SHIELD agents.



* HowDoIShotWeb: Vision struggles for most of the fight against Ultron due to several factors that all boil down to this trope. First, he isn't used to having a physical body and is technically only an hour old. Second, he has a universal singularity (the Mind Stone) embedded in his body. Third, Vision isn't even sure what his powers are, let alone how to use them. At one point, he puts up a temporary mental shield to protect Tony from his trauma at fighting the Chitauri again but isn't sure what he did or how he did it.



* NoodleIncident: Way to many to repeat, Between the christmas party of '69, the relay race of '07, the fashion week of '97 and whatever happened to do with a '72 VW to recruit someone to Stark International.

to:

* ThatManIsDead Most of the surviving SHIELD agents refuse to rejoin SHIELD after 2014 data dump and take on new identities so they can stay with Stark Industries after Tony saved them from SHIELD's various enemies. When trying to re-recruit them, most current SHIELD agents understand and say "They just have one of those faces" to pretend they mistook the former agents for someone else. Years after the fact, Natasha, who never considered what happened to the loyal SHIELD agents, has to be outright told by the former Agent 33 that Agent 33 was tortured to death by SHIELD's enemies (much like numerous other agents) and her name is Kara Palamas.
* NoodleIncident: Way to too many to repeat, Between the christmas Christmas party of '69, the relay race of '07, the fashion week of '97 and whatever happened to do with a '72 VW to recruit someone to Stark International.



* ARareSentence:
** Tony Stark has to explain Vision's origins in an email to the former members of SHIELD who've joined Stark Industries.
--->'''Tony:''' Basically, JARVIS entered a body that'd been created by Ultron, except what came out of Dr. Cho's Cradle was someone entirely. Vision sounds like him, and he's red, and he can fly.\\
{{Beat}}\\
Reading that makes me regret all life choices that led to this.
** Another example shows up in an email between a couple members of Stark Industries.
--->The world domination memes are only starting to go out—and I still can't believe that's a legitimate sentence that I just typed.
* RefugeInAudacity: To cover for the fact Tony Stark is (accidentally) setting himself up to take over the world in, his PR department turned the idea into a MemeticMutation so no one would take the idea seriously.
* SeenItAll: Most, if not all of SI employees. The legal department used to freak out over Tony's actions, but by the time of his apparent death in ''Film/IronMan3'', they refused to even consider Tony was dead without his dead body in front of them. Come the events of ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', the legal department just rolls their eyes at the whole thing and gets to work.



* UndyingLoyalty: The former members of SHIELD who joined SI are absolutely loyal to Tony, including insisting on acting as his security at multiple points.



** JARVIS' perception and morality is entirly Tony-Centric, so his narration is twisted by that view.
** Natasha is unable to look past her original opinions of people, so she is unable to understand why tony would be seen as the leader of the Avengers, she and the Avengers in general are also oblivious to the disdain the ex-S.H.I.E.L.D agents have to them.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: When Thor chokes Tony, Maria Hill comes to his defense, including afterwards when the Avengers are still harassing him. This earns her a jab from Natasha about her loyalty being to her paycheck. The scene is written from Maria's POV and refers to Natasha as "the stranger with a familiar face", disowning her as a friend.

** Averted with Tony and the other Avengers, he hoped they would be friends, and in canon they are, but in this story they were ''never'' friends, although Tony's professional relationship with the team collapses during the Age of Ultron arc.

* WorfHadTheFlu: Vision does remarkably well against Ultron and the Chitauri but he still realizes he's nowhere near as effective as he could be because, being only an hour old, Vision barely understands what his powers are, let alone how to use them.
* WorthyOpponent: Ultron took its name out of respect for JARVIS and by extension Tony Stark for creating such a formidable guardian with such relatively primitive technology. Over the course of the arc, Ultron's respect for Tony and JARVIS continues to grow until he decides to kidnap Tony to serve as one of Thanos's generals, citing that allowing him to die would be far too wasteful.


** Also the first scene of the fic, a take on the IM3 [[TheStinger post credits scene]], Bruce sleeping through Tony's attempt to vent leads to Tony abandoning their fledgling friendship.

Added DiffLines:

*UnusuallyUninterestingSight: New workers at SI note that the standard response to explosions is merely "R&D's at it again."

Added DiffLines:

* DramaticIrony: Thor, upon realizing the distance between Tony and the Avengers, vows to help bridge that gap, [[spoiler: about 1 scene after Tony decided to completely pull out of the team after the Ultron crisis.]]


* ChekhovsGun: [[Spoiler: On multiple occasions JARVIS' narration sections mention increasing numbers of backup servers, which come to play first when he [[PyrrhicVictory crashes his original servers to stop Ultron]] and then when he sacrifices himself to create Vision, allowing him to survive both incidents.]]

* ChildSoldier: SI and Tony really want to avert this regarding Peter Parker. They ''are'' aware of his forays into heroism, though, and reason that giving him training would be better for his long-term survival.



* ForWantOfANail: Due to the way JARVIS stops Ultron when he manifests prevents him from corrupting the Iron Legion, just stealing one body. [[Spoiler: As a result Tony can use them to help distract a BrainwashedAndCrazy Hulk, so there are no casualties in that incident.]]

* HeelRealization:
** Thor feels ''awful'' for strangling Tony, since he failed to consider human bodies are much more frail than an Asgardian, and his guilt isn't helped by the similarities he sees between Tony and Loki.
** Natasha starts to think she ''may'' have really screwed up when Kara Palamas refuses [[ThatManIsDead to answer to her former codename]] and coldly exposes the consequences of the 2014 data dump.



** JARVIS [[spoiler: let's Pietro die]] because the only Iron Legionnaire that could have [[spoiler:saved him]] was slated to save a group of trapped innocents and then aid Tony. When he registers [[spoiler: Pietro's death]] he notes that it wouldn't have arrived in time either way.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalSubstitute: Tony is utterly oblivious of the vibes he has when interacting with young intern Peter Parker.


* Cult: SI contains 2 Cults, one a low key secret one is dedicated to Pepper as a saint. The latter, far more secretive one, in R&D declared Tony the patron saint of innovation.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Natasha ''believes'' Tony is this, thinking he's too busy to help Wanda with getting citizenship after the Age of Ultron arc. Subverted as in reality Tony is simply trying to prevent backlash against SI and SI Legal had the option to help Wanda if they wanted to but 1. By this point [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating SI holds the Avengers in disdain]] and, with Tony pulling out of the Avengers has neither need nor desire to. And 2 a large number of ex-S.H.I.E.L.D agents whose lives were ruined by HYDRA and in many cases were traumatized by them, so have no desire to help a ''willing'' Hydra volunteer.


Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: An important part of the story.
** Tony's distrust of S.H.I.E.L.D grew because he was called in over [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld Thor's showdown in London]], pushing him further down the Atlas path. He is unaware that a S.H.I.E.L.D psychiatrist had advised giving him space for his PTSD.
** Basically everyone in SI understands that Tony is on the path to world domination. Everyone that is except ''Tony himself.'' No one brings it up to him because they assume he knows and don't want to insult him.
** The international community assumed Tony was the leader of the Avengers because he was the only one who ''was'' communicating.


* AIIsACrapshoot: JARVIS quite quickly descends to a mostly benevolent HAL/Skynet, going to extents such as [[spoiler: shooting Wanda when she threatened Tony, or allowing Pietro to die because it would risk civilians and more importantly Tony.]] It's stated that Jarvis [[spoiler:altered his Primary Protocol]] which Tony believes is to learn, grow and survive. [[spoiler: Though not currently stated it's implied that the new Protocol is 'Protect Tony Stark at ''any'' cost'.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SkewedPriorities: JARVIS is governed by his primary Protocol is to [[spoiler:protect Tony at all costs.]] As a result [[spoiler:Tony]] will always be his priority. When processing weather or not to [[spoiler:save Pietro]] JARVIS notes that people on the threat assessment Index[[spoiler:, an archive of threats to Tony, on which Pietro was ranked second at the time,]] ranked below Civilians in his priorities and his Primary Protocol [[spoiler: I.E Tony]] supersedes all else.

Added DiffLines:

* PyrrhicVictory: [[spoiler: To prevent Ultron from taking over the Iron Legion JARVIS crashes his servers. Partially subverted though as he has multiple backups, so it allows him to reboot after about 15 minutes.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Tony is unable to recognize his own hyper competence in comparison to others, thus is flummoxed by assumptions that he is the leader of the Avengers.
** JARVIS' perception and morality is entirly Tony-Centric, so his narration is twisted by that view.
** Natasha is unable to look past her original opinions of people, so she is unable to understand why tony would be seen as the leader of the Avengers, she and the Avengers in general are also oblivious to the disdain the ex-S.H.I.E.L.D agents have to them.


* MoralEventHorizon: Basically all of Tony's supporters who know of it consider the Penthouse incident (Thor choking Tony) not just this for Thor, but for the Avengers as a whole, Thor was oblivious to the fragility of humans, the others were not and yet not only did they not try to defend Tony, they continued to harass him when Thor released him, showing no regard for Tony's safety. The consequences included Tony leaving the team and cementing Maria's HeelFaceTurn.
** Made worse because in canon the role the scepter and Thanos had in the creation of Ultron were left ambiguous, placing the bulk of the responsibility on Tony's shoulders. In this? It is explicitly stated, both in the narrative and out loud by Ultron during the attack that he was ''entirely'' a creation of Thanos hiding in the Scepter, Tony had was completely '''innocent''' of his creation and they still blamed him.
