Please stop treating ‘99 and under liners as toddlers. It’s fine if it’s an AU and they’re still a child there, but God dammit, these people are 15-17 years old, not 5. They aren’t that innocent.
Now, I’m not saying it’s suddenly okay to sexualize them, I’m saying stop portraying them to be a child who sucks their thumb and carries a blanket and Teddy bear around with them 25/8. Stop making them seem like they can’t function without someone older near them. Stop making them seem like they have no clue what sex is, or that kissing will give them cooties. Stop making it seem like they’re defenseless and useless people who sit and cry and whine until you rock them to sleep or read them a story or something.
I’m around that age, and if someone treated me like this I’d slap them into hell. You wouldn’t go up to a Junior in high school and treat them that way, would you? Why is it bc they’re an idol it’s different? They’d be just as confused and offended as a “normal” person, because they’re normal people too.
Tony Stark is a billionaire, a genius, a playboy, and a secret agent. He is Agent 86 of CONTROL, an agency of the US Government dedicated to protecting freedom and democracy from the machinations of KAOS, the organization of evil. He always manages to save the day, get the job done, even if his methods are a little…unorthodox.
His partner is Agent 99, a terrifying and beautiful redhead who sets his heart fluttering as she takes down enemy agents with laced lipstick and roundhouse kicks. She is devastatingly competent, a better agent than he will ever be, and he would be lost without her.
Led by Chief of CONTROL Nicholas Fury, they battle the forces of evil with brains, ingenuity, and…would you believe 15,000 of the most highly trained men and women poached from the best espionage training academies? How about 1200 of the top graduates from universities around the country? How about 100 skilled agents, including a robot named Jarvis, a recently defected Soviet spy named Natasha Romanoff, a long-suffering Air Force liaison named James Rhodes, and K9 Agent Fang?
