Hi, Sargerogue here. Second Avengers fic, first multi-chapter fic. I will upload this prologue and the first chapter. I hope you like them, tell me what you think, and please no inferno flames. I will try to update these once a week but I will be starting school soon so I might not be consistent. Anyway, this chapter is an intro with an author's note inside of it as well as at the beginning and end.

After splitting up from Loki's attack, the Avengers went their separate ways for the most part. Bruce moved in with Pepper and Tony. Tony gave him the run of the labs as long as Bruce helped him with projects and handling the business along with being a superhero. Bruce accepted and soon found he liked having a bed to sleep on every night and food every day. The two Science Bros as Pepper nicknamed them got along well and when one was in trouble, the other was always there to save the other's ass.

Natasha and Clint were still SHIELD agents but not the same type that they had been before. Sure, they were still spies and assassins and had their regular work to do, but now they also dealt with the superhero side as they both liked it. Nick normally sent them out after those new superheroes to talk to them. Well, other than some of them.

Steve moved into his apartment again and beat the living hell out of punching bags every day. He took on a similar job to Natasha and Clint's but he didn't get the unique jobs that would pop up, or the ones that took more than a week to complete. Nick thought that was pushing it too much.

Thor took Loki back to Asgard where his little brother was under "house arrest" with his magic bound so he could not use it. Loki was silent most of time even when Thor tried to reconnect with Loki. Even though Loki had killed Agent Coulson, Thor still couldn't hate his brother. Thor helped his father and Hiemdal rebuild the Bifrost using the Tesseract. Thor began to travel to Earth as he pleased and saw Jane many times. But their first love had diminished as things changed. Odin continued to push for Sif and Thor to get married but Thor refused. If only he knew.

In the world surrounding the Avengers, other superheroes and their teams emerged. (NOTE TO READERS: Hi, your friendly neighborhood writer here. I combined a lot of the different comic, TV, and movie universes. I've used to my knowledge: Earth-616, Earth-199999 ((the one this is marked under)), Earth 80920, Earth-TRN123, Earth-11052, Earth-10005 ((not really, just a few ideas from it)), and Earth-92131. They're just the shows, TV, and mainstream universes. You can look them up on the Marvel Comics Database. I'll send you the link if you want. Also I've picked up little thorns of ideas from other fictions I've read. If you read something and you know who I got it from, tell me so I can credit them. Or have them tell me.)

(To continue) The X-Men have formed but are staying pretty low cover, seeing as they're mostly older teenagers (yes there's a reason for that). The Fantastic Four are somewhere around doing god knows what. Hank Pym and his wife Janet Van Dyne-Pym are around as well. Where, well, that's anybody's guess really. Logan, a.k.a. James Howlett, a.k.a. Wolverine, is with the X-Men but works with SHIELD frequently alongside his clone daughter Laura Logan, a.k.a. X-23. James Barnes, the Winter Soldier, is working for SHIELD in the special ops sector. Nick Fury Jr. has joined SHIELD and frequently works with Logan and Barnes.

In New York, Spider-Man (Peter Parker) is attending Midtown High as a Junior when he comes up. He's joined by his superhero teammates Ava Ayala (White Tiger), Luke Cage (Power Man), Daniel Rand (Iron Fist), and Sam Alexander (Nova). These are just some of the people in this story. Have fun. (Any questions? Contact me.)

Seriously, contact me. I'll talk, clear up things. And if you don't want to review, send me a message with your thoughts or a question. And please
