"Diana you can't be serious" Nat sighed as I was getting changed.

"Oh, I'm serious"

"Are you sure about this?" She asked me as I slipped my boots on.

I nodded, "I don't trust this Hammer guy-"

"You don't trust anybody" she cut me off.

I rolled my eyes, "Exactly. You've seen his tech, and I want to be prepared to help when it explodes or something. My boots are just a precaution," I gestured to my black leathered attire around my feet.

"And I understand that... but the boots are overkill" she chuckled.

I smirked, "These are my signature. I need to wear them"

She gave me a confused head tilt, "You don't have a signature.... this is your first mission"

"Yet," I pointed my finger at her. "I don't have a signature yet, because this is going to be it" I exclaimed getting to my feet.

"Look Didi, I know about the outburst you had with Stark-"

"Of course you do" I cut her off looking for my hidden weapons I would bring for my personal safety.

I'm honestly more surprised how late she'd brought the fight up. Usually I was informed an hour after it would happen.

"I just want to tell you, that you don't need to always be prepared. If you want a break just say so" she exclaimed.

I rolled my eyes, "We both know that's not true"

She gave me a frown, "Diana-"

"Don't," I put my hand up to stop her. "Please just... don't," I sighed. "I'm not in the mood for this"

She remained silent at that. She remained silent until we got to the expo.


We've been here for not even five minutes and I can say with 100% certainty... I was unamused. I'm sorry but I really don't wanna be here. If anything I'd rather go back to training or on a business trip instead. I'd rather be preparing myself for the future, then watching some stupid rich man show of something that was only created to make himself richer.

I avoided eye contact with Natasha as I slumped down in my seat watching as Hammer danced his way on stage looking like a newborn doe trying to walk for the first time.

He laughed his way to the podium, "Ladies and gentlemen, for far too long, this country has had to place its brave men and women in harm's way, but then the Iron Man arrived, and we thought the days of losing lives were behind us. Sadly, that technology was kept out of reach. That's not fair. That's not right. And it's just too bad" Hammer pouted.

"Mom said it's my turn with the Iron Man suit" I mumbled to myself making Pepper lightly tap me to stop.

"Regardless, it was an impressive innovation, one that grabbed the headlines the world over. Well, today, my friends, the press is faced with quite a difficult problem. They are about to run out of ink," he joked but no one laughed. "Today I present to you the new face of the United States military. The Hammer drone!" Hammer exclaimed as a large number of giant drones rose from the stage.
