Yes, we were going to build an arsenal with the Tesseract. I never put all my chips on that number, though because I was playing something even riskier. There was an idea, Stark knows this, called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a groupof remarkable people to see if they could become something more. To see if they could work together when we needed them to,
to fight the battles that we never could. Phil Coulson died still believing in that idea. In heroes. Well…it’s an old-fashioned notion.
