what the Avengers were doing during The Amazing Spider-man:
From up here, the kid looks like just that — a kid. One of the few things they do know about Spider-man is that he’s young, because he almost never appears before three p.m. and because they’ve run into him a few times and they’ve all concluded that he is definitely younger than twenty-five.
But hand-cuffed and beaten and under the guns of at least twenty officers, he looks even smaller and younger. Clint can hear Natasha muttering in Russian on the other end of the com, and from what he’s picked up from her over the years, he can tell she’s unhappy with the situation they’ve been forced into.
“How old do you think he is, really?” Steve asks, sounding just as upset as Natasha. “Are we going to let them do this?”
“Sir?” Clint says to Coulson. “Are you going to call it, sir?”
“We can’t just step on the NYPD’s jurisdiction,” Coulson says unhappily.
The chief steps forward to pull off Spider-man’s mask, and suddenly the men below burst into a flurry of action as Spider-man leaps up. Clint laughs despite himself as the kid manages to disarm all of the men while keeping his face down and away from everyone.
“Looks like he can handle himself,” matasha says.
“I like this kid,” Clint announces. “Can we adopt him?”
“No pets,” Coulson says idly, and but then he sighs and adds, “We’ll run it past Banner and Stark when they’re finished running the samples from Oscorp.”
“Excellent,” Clint says, and he lowers his bow with a grin.
