Oh, magic storm. Absolutely a magic storm. Totally having a Magic School Bus, should-have-stayed-home-today moment.

So. There are two Starks now.

How do we want to do this?

So. It's been 16 days. Has anyone actually followed through on their New Year's Resolution?

I have a question to ask, and I want you to answer honestly. I won't be angry.

Did you kill John Garrett?
[Tony Stark (MCU)]
You wouldn't happen to have an Iron Man suit on you, by any chance, would you?
[Tony Stark (616), Bruce Banner (616) & Jemma Simmons]
Gentleman & Dr. Simmons,

I might need a favour.

I've been thinking. I know you're just heading off with The Doctor. But, with Simon gone would you like more help with the Med Centre?

[Filtered to Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanoff and Tony Stark]

Would you mind awfully if I reduced my work hours, and went part-time?

Just, Martha's running the Med Centre on her own now, and I've offered to help her. As it really is a lot of work for just her.

Veteran’s day was a few weeks ago. That’s the day when we all try to devote a few minutes of our day to remember the tragedy of war, the hardships of soldiers. It’s about taking the time, pausing to reflect on what we’ve lost.

Tomorrow, though. Tomorrow is about thankfulness, it’s about celebrating what we have, it’s about family, and community; fellowship and plentifulness. But I urge you not to forget those that aren’t with their families. The losses, and the sacrifices that were made over decades so that we can sit and be thankful. Be thankful to them; be thankful to them by remembering them.

And while it’s not always pleasant, we shouldn’t turn our attention too far from the origins of this holiday, to the great losses of life, the decimation of the Native Americas and the people who suffered, and who continue to suffer. Remember them too, because the only way to stop atrocities from happening in the future, is not to forget the horrors of the past.

For those here that are missing family, friends or loved ones -- for those here who don’t feel they have a lot to be thankful for, I’m sorry. I know the next few days will be difficult, and the month to come even more so. But please don’t be afraid to reach out to people if you need to -- and those of you that have a place here, that have made a live here, I urge you to be generous, and to be as welcoming as you’d want someone to be for you.

I deeply hope that everyone has a good Thanksgiving tomorrow, and a good weekend ahead. Have a gracious and happy holiday.

And one more thing: Try not to get killed at any stores on Friday.

So I know we talked about starting our own business.

But theoretically how would you feel about taking the reigns of a company that's already turning a profit?

I think I may have stepped into a hornet's nest.

I trust you three have had a chance to chat?

I know you now know that I'm Tony Stark, from Earth 616. I've been Iron Man since I was 19. There are comic books about this, apparently. You can check them out at your leisure, if you'd like to get a sense of the sort of guy I am.

Over dinner, Natasha asked me what I would do, if I'd gotten control of this company suddenly and unexpectedly. I'll tell you what I told her.

My first question: Who is your talent? Who do you have besides Tony Stark that can do what Tony Stark did? Because without a genius engineering goose to lay golden eggs, you might as well sell off your current inventory and declare bankruptcy now, because tech is an extremely competitive, expensive, and risky industry. Even if you're 100% equity financed and you've got a fantastic credit rating, it's going to be impossible for you to get project funding when you have no real assets (tech is one of those industries where you really don't have any assets to sell off when a company goes under because tech is always evolving, so you lose projects to depreciation and obsolescence very rapidly, which makes it extremely difficult to get people to lend you money.) Additionally, you have no reasonable assurance of future cash flows once your current inventories have dried up. You can't keep going back to the well of models Stark has already built and sold, because tech is an evolving industry. Theoretically, you could reorganize the company as an LLC to license the designs, but you'd have to fire almost your entire staff. And your LLC will be useless when the patents expire, if not much sooner. And that's only if Stark has been good about submitting patents on new products. Without him here to defend his work, the company is pretty much SOL.

And assuming you had the talent, which -- I'm not convinced that you do, at this point, given the company's size and the time it's been here, not really enough time to groom someone to take over -- who do you have in your board of directors who has experience running a company like this? Who is your CEO? Your CFO? Your COO? What is your debt/equity ratio? Are you publicly or privately traded? How do you finance your projects? Does someone on your team know how to propel a machine like this forward? Is your staff committed to seeing you through this transition? What is your break-even analysis for any ongoing projects?

So now. Natasha asked me what I would do if I were you.

My answer depends on one thing: what I would do if I were you and in charge of this company, or what I would do if I were me and in charge of this company. Because those are two very different questions.

If I were me, I would feel comfortable stepping in and taking control of an entity like this, because I already know this business, this industry. I am confident that I could step into Tony Stark's shoes, and push even further than he did, because my world's tech is actually more advanced. If I were in charge, I'd restructure and shift focus away from weapons development and towards dragging Kansas, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century. 

But -- if I were you and I'd just gotten control of Stark Industries, without any prior knowledge of business development or complex engineering... I'd declare bankruptcy now, sell off any inventory and other assets, and split the profits. 



I'd take Tony Stark on as a partner, give him 51% of the voting shares, divide the remaining shares between the rest of you, and get moving.

There will be a meeting Monday morning at 10am to discuss the current situation.

[Tony Stark (616)]
Would you happen to be available for dinner tonight?

[Clint and Steve]
To prevent everyone from speculating, I'm calling a meeting for Monday morning so we can get that out of the way. If you're available to come to the Warehouse tomorrow, Steve, the three of us can discuss things.

Stark's gone. His stuff too. Act of seal and all that.

Its a pity. He was alright.

[MCU Avengers]

He told me if it ever happened the business as it is was to go to you. I won't be shocked if you don't want to keep me on.

[Friends of Felicia Hardy]

She's not taking it amazingly. Someone should be with her that knows her

Would it be worth putting together a list of displaced, and natives who are sort of in on all this (Hi!) owned places that are hiring? Which we can then link to people?

Since we've had such a big influx lately, and they all keep asking about it.

I'll start.

  • The Roadhouse | Bar | Owned by Jo Harvelle

  • Bed of Roses | Bar | Owned by Lexi and Lee Branson

  • The Med Bay | Medical Centre for the Displaced | Run by Martha Jones and Simon Tam

  • Stark Industries | Weapons and Technology Company | Owned by Tony Stark (The sexy movie one)

  • The Sweet Tooth | A bakery | Owned by Jane Bennet

So what's a girl who's only been a spy supposed to do for a living here?

There is absolutely nothing about my world that suprises me anymore. Or any version of my world.

Mostly I'm bemused that I kind of wish Coulson was here for this.

Can someone explain why there are now two of Stark now?

If a second Quill turns up I'm out.

Avengers Warehouse, Banner, Stark (both)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Tony, Bruce, we've got some room in the renovated warehouse a bunch of us stay at if you need a place to stay. We also have some amulets for you two that will keep you safe from possession. Which is a thing here.

At least this isn't the cold, silent vacuum of space. I can work with this.

So I'm Bruce Banner.

I just woke up naked in a graveyard which -- funny story -- not the strangest place I've woken up naked this week. I have this fun phone! But no pants.

This must be what it feels like to be Tony Stark.
