Tony listened to all of this, nodding along. A lot of this happened after his time over there ended. It was weird to hear about it, but he was also kind of fascinated. More so in light of recent events, after he talked to Mobius.
"Latest rumor is Cap's on the moon," Tony confirmed, but no one could find out if that was true. He was going to fly up there and see, actually. As for dying? "Nat and I already know. Clint's not here, either. I mean, I think this universe's Clint is with his wife and kids. We don't bug people that aren't in-the-know. Thor's been here and left a couple of times. Which sucks. We could use another heavy hitter. I feel bad asking Bruce. He rips his pants up...it gets awkward if they don't stretch back right..."
He rubbed a hand over one side of his neck like there was a pain there. It was a metaphorical one for the most part. It was going to be tough to explain it.
"Anyway. It sounds like something Sam dreamed about. We get caught up on the flip side in dreams, really intense stuff. We think there's a connection between this universe and that one. It's like a copy. But we can't figure out why. It sounds like what already happened over there is happening here. Just on a delay, with some changes. No John Walker killing anyone. Sam's pretty much taking Cap's place..."
Was he even making sense? He wasn't sure. What he needed to do was try to be reassuring, but that was always Steve's job. Tony was too blunt for it.
"You're gonna be ok," he said, sounding like they had this handled. "Friday'll get you set up with a room and everything you need. You can contact Sam and find out what's going on. He's in Madripoor right now."
