there was an idea, stark knows this, called the avengers initiative. the idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. see if they could work together when we needed them to to fight the battles we never could.
[Marvel 2008 — 2019] TONY STARK TRIBUTE | MY WAY : And now, the end is near. So I face the final curtain. My friend, I’ll say it clear. I’ll state my case of which I’m certain. I’ve lived a life that’s full. I’ve traveled each and every highway. And more, much more than this.. I did it my way. Regrets, I’ve had a few. But then again, too few to mention. I did what I had to do and saw it through without exception. I planned each charted course. Each careful step along the byway. And much more than this… I did it my way. Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew. When I bit off more than I could chew. But through it all, when there was doubt. I ate it up and spit it out. I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way. I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried. I’ve had my fill, my share of losing. And now as tears subside, I find it all so amusing. To think I did all that and may I say, not in a shy way. Oh, no, not me… I did it my way. For what is a man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has naught. To say the words he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels. The record shows I took the blows and did it my way.
