“Banner and I will give it the once over before it goes back to Asgard, if that’s cool with you?” Tony Stark asked Thor as the quinjet flew them home from Sokovia. The God of Thunder put his hands on his hips.

“Nay.”

Stark looked at him in in puzzlement and confusion. “But Thor, the sceptre…”

“Odin has decreed it be returned to Asgard and to Asgard it shall go. It does not belong in mortal hands.”

“Three days, tops! After the party you take it back to daddy, whadda ya say?” Tony smiled.

Thor smiled back and then went cold and stern. “Nay.”

Tony began to protest when Thor clamped his big Asgardian hand upon his comrade’s shoulder. “My father, The All-Father, King God of Asgard wishes this return to the vault and there it shall go.”

“A day? Couple of hours?” Tony bargained.

“Ha ha you are always a businessman Stark, but nay. We land, attend to Hawkeye and I shall return it to Asgard. Then friends, we shall have revels.” Thor smiled.

“Nice try,” Captain America added as the jet headed into US airspace.

I am...The Watcher. There is a universe known as Earth-199999 where Tony Stark creates the robotic nightmare Ultron with the help of Bruce Banner. His intentions were noble but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Using the Tesseract from the Sceptre of Loki he brings Ultron to life who then attempts to destroy all life on earth.

In this universe, that does not happen. Stark is thwarted by Odin's desire to keep the Tesseract locked up in Asgard. Black Widow and Banner/Hulk's relationship deepens and Hawkeye retires from being a hero to chop wood and raise children.

The twins, Pietro & Wanda Maximoff, using the vast resources of HYDRA recruit a team to take out the Avengers. They rescue The Abomination from prison in Barrow, Alaska, bring in Crossbones, the deadly Radioactive Man from China joins as he has a vendetta against Stark and the mysterious woman Fenris, revealed to be the daughter of Baron Strucker. Can the Avengers stand up to...

@cbishop: 13.A for you :)

Avengers Tower, New York

“But it’s a trick!” declared Hawkeye spinning a chopstick in his fingers as he and his fellow Avengers sat around for the after party.

Thor smiled and clinked goblets with Steve Rogers. “Nay, it is much more than that.”

“Be he whoever shall be worthy shall haveth the POWER!” He joked pointing at Mjolnir resting on the table. “Whatever man, it’s a trick!”

“Well please be my guest.” Thor motioned towards his hammer. Hawkeye looked at Maria Hill who encouraged him. He sauntered around the table.

“You’ve had a tough week, we hold it against you if you can’t get it up,” Tony smirked as he swilled champagne.

Hawkeye grabbed the ancient handle, took a firm grip, and yanked. The hammer stayed put upon the table. He strained and grunted but it didn’t move. “I don’t get how you do it. It’s a trick!”

“Can you feel the silent judgement?” Tony snipped.

“Please, Stark, by all means,”

Thor chuckled and sipped from his goblet as the billionaire industrialist stood up and cracked his knuckles. “Never one to shrink from an honest challenge. It’s just physics. Right, so I lift this, I rule Asgard is that it?”

“Of course,” Thor replied.

“I will be reinstituting prima nocta,” Tony said as he positioned himself and attempted to lift. The hammer didn’t move. He huffed and tried again. “Be right back.”

And so the evening was spent with each taking turns, several in fact. Thor declares them all unworthy and picks his mallet up, flipping it in his hands.

Zamok Ultra-Max Prison, Barrow, Alaska.

SHIELD agent Trent Agbo wandered down a chilly steel corridor, iPad in hand. He paused at the large door and scanned his ID card against the wall. The doors hissed. A gust of air whooshed past him. Agbo looked around in confusion.

“Control?”

“Go ahead.”

“Did you see that?”

“Did we see what?”

Agbo peered down the corridor. “Pull up the cameras on X level. I swear something…it doesn’t feel right okay.”

“Stand by…”

Agbo drew his sidearm and walked down the corridor. He looked at the cryo-cell on his left. The green lights were on and Dr Samuel Sterns was still in his ice block. “Control?”

“Stand by…”

Agbo moved to the next cell and saw again, lights on and John Falsworth was safely locked in his cell.

“Control, this isn’t funny!”

A sudden gust whooshed past him again. Agbo raised his weapon wildly looking for a target. “Control, I have a situation!”

“Stand b…”

Appearing in front of him was a man in a black tracksuit holding his headset in his hand. “Looking for this?”

Agbo opened fire and the man simply stepped left and right at uncanny speed. He grabbed the gun and dismantled it and dropped it on the floor all in a blink. He then unloaded a flurry of blows that pummelled the SHIELD agent into unconsciousness. He took the headset. “Wanda?”

In the control room, Wanda Maximoff stood next to the SHIELD agent, her hands awash with crimson energy. “Stand by…” He said without emotion.

“Good,” Wanda told the agent. Beside her stood a woman in stylised power armour, a sword by her side.

“Pietro,” she said into the comms. “What we want is in the last cell.”

“Yes Fenris,” Pietro Maximoff dashed down the end to a massive door reminiscent of a bank vault. Fenris nodded at Wanda and she magically made the SHIELD agent unlock the massive cell. As the cell opened, they saw locked in a cryo-stasis was The Abomination. Formerly Emil Blonsky, the massive gamma mutated man had been hidden away here as there was nowhere else to put him.

“Beautiful!” Fenris exclaimed. Pietro whizzed about unlocking the manual clamps that held Emil in place. An orange mist sprayed over the hulking brute and slowly it came back to consciousness.

“What of the Avengers and Stark?” Wanda asked.

“They rest on their laurels. Believing Hydra to be defeated just because they captured my father,” Fenris said. “Fools!”
