“Being like everyone else, especially here, is the biggest drag you could ever wish upon yourself."
“Says you.” Peter extended an explaining hand. “You’re… You're Tony Stark. You’re set to inherit the biggest tech company in the world. Your father—"
“Turned me into a cyborg,” Tony said directly, eyes wide but simple. “He turned me into a cyborg. Into R2-D2.”
Peter put his hand down awkwardly. “C-3PO, actually,” he muttered, “would be more appropriate.”
And then there went Tony's odd look.
Tony Stark, previously hospitalised, returns to his boarding school with a blue device in his heart. New student Steve Rogers has strength only attained through amnesiac outbursts, and sophomore Peter Parker finds himself pained with spider-like abilities. When Tony decides to help them (and find out more about his own potential), he realises he needs assistance. Old friend Bruce Banner would be perfect. Too bad he hates him.
But that's the least of Tony's worries; Clint Barton and Bucky Barnes want blood spilled at that school for two separate reasons. From the way things are looking, it might be his.
He better find that potential fast.
