Two years had passed since the battle of New York, and it was easy for Tony to recall the events given the constant nightmares. He also remembered that this man lying in his arms had been the same one that had tried to conquer the planet, even though he looked nothing like himself at the moment. So when he stared at Loki lying innocent and limp in his hold, he felt a kind of pity, but pushed that away when he remembered all he'd done.Without a real plan, he carried him over to the couch, lying him down carefully to avoid causing him any more pain. “Jarvis, scan his vitals,” he said as he placed his hand on Loki's forehead. He immediately pulled away when he felt it burning, and he hopped up to get a cool cloth. When he put it up to his forehead, he noticed the uneasiness in his breathing, and it began to startle him. “Scan complete,” Jarvis replied after a moment, and words began to appear on the screen that had been pulled up. “Temperature is 40 degrees Celsius, signs of recent blood loss; Shall I read off the rest?” Tony peered up at the screen, shaking his head. “Nah. I can read it.” He looked over the words, eyes widening as he saw all that was wrong with the god. If Loki were human, he would have been dead long ago. In fact, it was a miracle he was breathing right now. The broken ribs, the gashes, the open wounds; it was all too much for Tony to believe that he could still be alive.
Loki whimpered, shifting in his sleep, and Tony jumped a bit, wondering if he were waking up or not. But when he pulled the cloth back to check how warm it was, it was terribly hot, and he went back to cool it down for him. Where had Loki come from? Tony thought. And why was he so badly beaten? As he studied the god, he wondered how long he'd been going through this torture. He wanted to call someone, anyone, so he wouldn't have to understand this alone, but with Loki's history, their main objective would be to kill him or lock him up. He looked over him a bit, noting his lethally thin appearance. He finally settled on having Jarvis contact Bruce.
At least it was a start.
