DISCLAIMER: I don't own Danny Phantom or Avengers. (I wish I did)
Nothing, that's what he felt. Nothing. Darkness surrounded his vision as he took a deep breath. Where was he? Who was he? He felt a twitch on his right hand side but nothing on his left hand. It was as if there was nothing there. He slowly opened his eyes and saw only blurred images that clouded his vision. His mouth was dry and his throat felt stuck. He moved his neck to the side and felt something warm on his right hand. Did something happen?
Then he remembered.
Maybe it would be easier to start from the beginning.
On earth, Tony Stark was a name that everyone knew. Especially for technology and a superhero known as Ironman. But now almost no one knew were the rich playboy lived since the vanishing five years ago. That's what they called the SNAP, the Vanishing. Tony had married his secretary, Pepper Potts, and had a daughter.
Nothing in the world would make Tony turn his back on the life he had now. Peaceful and tranquil we're the words he would to describe it. Tony say down by the lake and sighed. He thought about the Avengers, Thanos, and the vanished. Was it his fault that they all disappeared into thin air? He was a superhero and he sacrificed his life to protect others. Then why didn't he feel like a superhero at all?
A splash brought Tony out of his thoughts and he looked to see a floating figure on top of the water. Tony immediately dived into the ice cold water and brought the man to safety. Tony dragged him onto the banks and studied the young man before him.
He looked no older than eighteen, possibly seventeen. His hair was dark and shaggy looking. There was a silver streak running down the middle. He looked well built as Tony could see from his wet shirt. Then there was a scar that ran down his left eye which made Tony curious as to why someone would want to hurt a young child.
Tony picked up the young man and hoisted him on his shoulders. Pepper would possibly be worried and his princess would probably just stare at him. Besides, they didn't go into civilization much. Tony opened the door and there was his princess, Morgan, who sat on the couch reading a book. She looked up and her eyes immediately rested upon the unconscious boy.
"Who's that, Daddy?" Morgan asked and Tony shifted uncomfortably.
"Uh… He's a friend of Daddy's. Would you mind getting your mother for me?" Tony asked as Morgan nodded. She got up and left the room and Tony placed the unconscious man on the couch.
"Tony, what is-" Pepper stopped talking and walked next to Tony looking over him. "Who is this?" Tony shrugged and ran a hand through his hair.
"He collapsed into the lake though." Tony said as Pepper's brows furrowed together. She put a hand on his forehead and gasped.
"He's ice cold! We have to get him warmed up," Pepper said as she ran into the kitchen to possibly get a warm towel. Tiny stared at the boy and wondered how he fell into the lake in the first place. Then though the thick mop of hair, Tony saw a lump.
"Oh no." Were the first words to come out of Tony's mouth. The boy could have a concussion. "Pepper!" Tony ran into the kitchen to see his wife ring out a towel over the sink. She looked at his with eyes raised. "He might have a concussion."
He and Pepper raced back into the living room and Pepper immediately spotted the bump. She clicked her tongue and put the hot cloth on his forehead.
"We have to get him out of these clothes." Pepper said and looked at Tony. Tony nodded and lifted the unconscious boy, who was surprisingly light. Pepper peaked off the boy's wet shirt and gasped.
"What is it?" Tony's question went unanswered as he looked at Pepper. Her eyes were watery and full of sadness. Tony shifted his hands to get a better grip but he felt bumps underneath his hands. He lifted the boy higher and Tony saw scars. Who the fuck would do this to a young boy? It just frustrated Tony.
"Mommy? Daddy?" He heard Morgan's voice from the hallway and Tony looked towards her.
"Morgan, go to your room. I'll be there soon." Tony said as he heard her little footsteps trail away.
"Who would do this?" He heard Pepper whisper mostly to herself. He didn't know how bad the front was but he could assume that it was bad.
"Pepper, we have to finish otherwise he could get really sick." Tony said and Pepper nodded. They had gotten the young boy into one of Tony's sweatpants and large t-shirts.
Pepper had gone into the kitchen and sat down at the counter. After they were done, Tony had seen the scars the littered the young boy's body and they were all over. Bullet wounds, slashes, and more. But there was a particular Y shaped scar which Tong assumes that it was for dissection.
"Who would do such a thing? Especially to a young boy?" Pepper's voice was quiet as she stared at her hands. Tony sighed and put an arm around his wife's shoulders. He definitely had a soft spot for children and this one was no exception. Something in Tony, told him to take care of the kid.
"We can ask him after he gets better, okay Pep." Tony kissed Pepper's forehead and noticed that it was dark outside. "Come on, let's go to bed." Tony slowly lead Pepper to the bedroom and they fell into a deep sleep.
Thanos narrowed his eyes at the intruder, Dan. Dan smiled at the large destroyer as Thanos sat on his chair in the middle of his ship. He was interesting to look at.
Dan was huge with bulging muscles. His eyes were glowing red, full of malice and hatred. His skin was greenish and his hair was a silver fire. Thanos felt fear prickling at the back of his mind. Thanos immediately pushed it back and kept an emotionless face.
"How did you come onto my ship?" Thanos asked as he held his sword at his side, ready to strike this man down where he stood if he made any ill intent leak out.
"Through a portal that leads from your dimension to mine." Dan answered and Thanos was surprised. He knew that there were other planets, but dimensions? That brought a whole new meaning to what Thanos planned to do.
"Your dimension?" Thanos asked and Dan grinned showing those sharp fangs.
"Yes, my dimension. A horrid place filled with people that do not understand the pain that they are going through." Dan replied and Thanos rubbed his chin. Possibly if he was done obliterating half of the universe, then he could go to other dimensions and save them from the fate that his planet lived. "I could lead you there, of course."
Thanos stared at Dan. For all he knew, this man could be a trickster or be using Thanos. He wasn't a dumbass after all. Thanos leaned back thinking. If this man were to lead his army into his home dimension, what would he want in return?
"At what price?" Thanos asked voicing his thoughts. Dan chuckled darkly which resonated throughout the room.
"You are smart, so very smart." Dan's eyes beamed. "All I wish is the extermination of a certain pest." Pest? Dan seemed strong enough to handle even his daughter Gamora.
"A pest? And who is this pest?" Dan's eyes darkened as he described his problem.
"He goes by the name of Danny Phantom. He's been a thorn in my side for as long as I could remember. I almost saved my dimension if it wasn't for him." Dan said as Thanos narrowed his eyes. Could it be that this man shared the same experience as him? The lost of his family? His planet? So many questions were running through his mind. Thanos chewed at the inside of his cheek and finally made his decision.
"I will help you get rid of Danny Phantom." Dan's smiled seemed to stretch to both his ears.
