“How did you fail your history test?” Artemis hissed as she and her brother made their way from their makeshift S.H.I.E.L.D classroom to the apartment they shared with their parents.
“Both our Uncle and our SO are living fossils! And don’t even get me started on Coulson…”
“Okay!” Apollo sighed, “I get it. I was up late the night before okay? I fell asleep and didn’t finish!”
“What were you doing?”
Apollo looked down to his shoes, muttering, “Playing Zelda with Ethan…”
“Really?” Artemis yelled, “Well I hope you’re happy, I’m going to the Tower for movie night and you’ll be here, studying for your make-up test.”
“No, no, no!”  her brother gasped, grabbing on to her shirt, “I’m cashing in a favor!”
Artemis stopped walking and turned to face him, giving him a skeptical look, “From when?”

“I don’t wanna be Princess Leia!” Artemis pouted, stomping her foot on the ground and putting her hands on her hips.
Ethan took a step back, “Okay, fine! You don’t have to!”
“Yes she does!” Apollo argued, “If she’s not Princess Leia, who is? I’m Luke, and we’re twins.”
Artemis crossed her arms, glaring at her brother, “You can be Princess Leia. Then I’ll be Luke Skywalker. You know, since we’re twins.”
“No!” Apollo screamed, “I can’t be Princess Leia, she’s a girl.”
Artemis tilted her head, her eyebrows raised, “And what’s wrong with that?”
“Nothing!” Ethan said swiftly, placing a hand over Apollo’s mouth and stepping between his friends. “Nothing’s wrong with that, I’d be Princess Leia if you wanted, she’s kick-ass, totally awesome.”

Artemis’ POV
I’d been hearing whispers of a hooded archer vigilante patrolling around New York, taking out small crime like muggers, gang members, and purse-snatchers. I told my brother, and he made the obligatory reference to the TV series Arrow, and blew it off, but I followed the archer closer. Last week, the Archer made a massive Russian Mob bust, and was interviewed and photographed by some reporters.
The girl couldn’t have been more than a teenager, and a young one at that. She was dressed in black pants with high black boots and a dark purple hoodie. She had her hood up, but I could see hints of jet black hair pointing out, and through her mask, I could see her blue eyes. She had a small stature, no more than 5’2, and about 90 pounds from what I could see. She didn’t answer any of the reporters’ questions aside from one. When they asked for her name, she told them it was Hawkeye, and that caught my attention.

“I know.” She groaned, “I’m working on it.”
“It’s snowing…”
“Actually,” Apollo interrupted, “It’s a blizzard.”
“See!” Ethan yelled, “And I’m in a metal suit.”
Artemis threw her hands up, “It’s winter, in Russia. What did you expect? Didn’t you bring a heater or something?”
“Well yeah, but…”
“Wait!” Apollo said, glaring at Ethan, “You have a heater? You know your girlfriend and I are walking around in the blizzard with standard S.H.I.E.L.D stealth coats, right? And you have the nerve to…”

65- Horrific
Aliens had invaded New York. Again. That alone had warranted Ethan and Artemis to ‘pause’ their retirement. After all, if New York was in danger, so were their children. But apparently this time, the aliens weren’t after New York (for once), but they were after Teddy Altman, aka Hulkling, one of the newest recruits to the Avengers.
The aliens called themselves Skrull, and claim Teddy to be their prince and rightful heir, refusing to leave Earth without him. Of course, the Avengers opposed, starting the fight in Manhattan. Now if the Avengers thought that was the worst of their problems, they were horribly mistaken.
In an effort to prove to Teddy his ‘true’ heritage, the so called ‘Super-Skrull’ captured Teddy’s mother, forcing her to tell him the truth; that he was the child of Captain Mar-Vell and the Skrull Emperor's daughter, Princess Anelle. Teddy’s ‘mother’ was apparently the Princess’ handmaiden, who whisked

Artemis stood at the front of the long S.H.I.E.L.D briefing table, clearing her throat to gain the attention of her team who was seated in 8 of the chairs, with Director Coulson sitting in the one on the other end. “Okay guys,” she started, “We need to talk about a serious conspiracy that is plaguing New York City.”
Coulson raised an eyebrow.
“Brian,” Artemis said, tossing her friend the clicker as he stood up and made his way to the screen baring a power-point. “If you please?”
“Gladly.” He replied, starting up the slide-show and using the laser-pointer to gesture at the screen. “So, Artemis, Ethan and I devised a chart on the massive attacks on New York.”
Ethan stood up, facing Coulson, he added, “We calculated ‘massive attacks’ as those totaling more than a million dollars in damage, caused by a level 5 villain or higher.”
“The red dots,” Brian explained as Ethan sat back down

63- Do Not Disturb
Artemis lounged on her bed, lying on her stomach facing the foot of her bed. She skimmed through websites on her laptop, mostly Facebook, and scrolling through Google looking for new ideas for trick arrows. Her parents and brother were already asleep, and she should be too, but Artemis had always been a night owl.
She heard some shuffling in the hallway, but brushed it off as her brother going to the bathroom; until she heard the unwelcome sound of her door opening.
Without bothering to look up, she asked, “Can’t you read?”
“What?” Apollo responded.
“There’s a sign.”
“What sign?”
“The sign.” Artemis sighed, “On my door. Can’t you read?”
Apollo took two steps back, examining the outside of Artemis’ door. “Okay,” he said, “I read it.”
“And?”
“It says ‘Do not Disturb.’”
“Ah!” Artemis said, finally turning to look at

I looked up at the unassuming townhouse, “Why am I here?”
Mr. Richards sighed, “You’re the leader of the Avengers.”
I glared at him, “You brought Spiderman.”
“And what’s wrong with that?!” Peter muttered.
Because,” Mr. Richards interrupted, walking in between us, “he’s one of the major superheroes in New York. As am I, and you, Artemis. And apparently,” he reached for the knocker, “There is a fourth. And you know how much I love things that come in fours.”
“A lot apparently,” I rolled my eyes, “But last I checked, you and I have quite a few colleagues that also work here.”
“But we are the leaders.” He insisted.
“Which makes us no difference to me.”

61- Fairy Tale
“Once upon a time,” Artemis started, “In an ancient kingdom, called the Soviet Union, there lived a Princess named Natasha.”
“Like me?” Nattie squealed.
“Just like you.” Artemis smiled, tickling her daughter. She waited until the three-year-old stopped laughing before continuing. “When the Princess was very little, she was very happy, and her favorite thing to do was ballet. But then, when she got older, the evil Knights of the Red Room came and took the Princess away.”
Nattie’s eyes widened, “No!” she gasped.
“They forced the princess to work, train, and go on secret missions for them. They turned her into a soldier. But she never questioned her orders, because she knew if she did, they would hurt her.”
“Poor Princess…” Nattie muttered.
“Then, one day, Prince Clinton from the kingdom of S.H.I.E.L.D was sent to kill her, because she had hurt too many of his knights.

60- Desert
Artemis silently cursed the one who decided deserts had to be so hot. And Coulson, for sending them out here in the first place. She, Apollo, and Bucky had been sent to Cairo to help the X-Men with some case involving a crazy ancient mutant. He, of course, shot down their Quinjet, causing it to spiral out of control and land some 5 miles out of the fight. Since none of them could fly, they now had to run the five miles just to fight a crazy psychopath.
Great.
“Artemis?” Bucky whined, “Can we slow down please?”
“Says the superhuman.” Apollo scoffed.
“Buck.” She sighed, “There is a global catastrophe right there,” she gestured to the dust clouds and the X-men who were fighting. “We really can’t afford to. Just take a drink of water and keep on trekking.”
“I hate you so much.” Bucky grumbled taking a swig of the water Artemis tossed at him.
Artemis rolled her eyes, “That’s nice Buck.

59- No Way Out
Artemis’ POV
I woke up on the ground with greenery all around me. I sat up in a daze, rubbing my head, trying to remember how I got here. The last thing I remember, we were fighting Dr. Doom, and then I was here, wherever here is. I stood up, immediately realizing I didn’t have my bow, arrows, or guns, I sighed.
I hate magic.
The place I was in looked like those mazes in moves, like Alice in Wonderland, or Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. But as much as I would love to marvel in this fantasy-like world, there were more pressing matters. I knew Ethan and Grace had been sucked in here with me, and with the giant hedges, I wasn’t able to see them. I needed to find them, but, first things first, I needed a weapon because who knows what was out there.
Glancing around, I grabbed a long stick and a vine. I notched the ends of the stick with the knife I kept on the inside of my boot, then I tightly strung the vine, making a makeshift bow. I walked around, gathering

58- Kick in the Head
“My baby sister’s getting married!” Ethan moaned for what seemed to be the thousandth time today. He was laying on the couch, his arm over his face. Nattie was perched on his chest, and Clint was kneeling next to the coffee table, coloring a picture.
Artemis glared at him from where she was folding laundry across the room. Her husband was ruining a rare moment of calm where the twins were finally asleep. “I know Ethan.” She sighed, “I’ve known since she told us yesterday. She’s 27-years-old, E. She can make up her own mind.”
Ethan ignored his wife, choosing instead to gaze up at his giggling 7-year-old daughter. “Promise me you’ll never get married? Especially to a good for nothing all-powerful mutant who…”
“Ethan James Stark!” Artemis scolded, “Franklin is a great man who loves your sister. They’ve been dating for about five years! And if they want to get married,

57- Sacrificial
Artemis’ POV
Today has been a very long day. The Avengers were out dealing with a ‘global catastrophe’ in Europe, something to do with a purple alien guy and a golden glove. My team wasn’t allowed to help with that, so Coulson dropped us in San Francisco, telling us to deal with an incident where two undercover S.H.I.E.L.D agents were killed by the Punisher.
I wasn’t very fond of the Punisher honestly, probably because of the whole killing thing. Not that we and the Avengers had never killed anyone, but we tried to save more than kill. Unlike mister collateral damage.
So, we tracked him down to his motel room. Apollo and I went in while Grace and Ethan kept watch. Unfortunately, he appeared to have been expecting us, and had Apollo and I cornered within two minutes of our entry. Then, despite my orders not to intervene, Ethan came barging in, just to have Punisher’s remote sniper rifle trained on his chest. Not to be left out, Gr

“What do you think your dad was doing with these?” Ethan asked as he and Brian were rooting through their fathers’ lab.
“I don’t know.” Brian responded, glancing over at the barrel Ethan was looking at, “But seeing as it’s in a biohazard container, I think we should properly dispose of it.”
“Sissy.” Ethan taunted, scrunching his nose in at Brian, but the younger boy just turned back to the files he was reading, ignoring him.
“Fine,” Ethan huffed, “Have it your way.” He went to walk over to something else, but tripped over an old robot he hadn’t seen. As he fell, Ethan flailed his arms, trying to catch himself, but all he succeeded in doing was knocking over the biohazard container.
Brian spun around, watching the scene unfold seemingly in slow motion. He was unable to do anything to stop his friend from falling, but he ran to him as fast as he could, hoisting Ethan off the ground by his armp

“How did you fail your history test?” Artemis hissed as she and her brother made their way from their makeshift S.H.I.E.L.D classroom to the apartment they shared with their parents.
“Both our Uncle and our SO are living fossils! And don’t even get me started on Coulson…”
“Okay!” Apollo sighed, “I get it. I was up late the night before okay? I fell asleep and didn’t finish!”
“What were you doing?”
Apollo looked down to his shoes, muttering, “Playing Zelda with Ethan…”
“Really?” Artemis yelled, “Well I hope you’re happy, I’m going to the Tower for movie night and you’ll be here, studying for your make-up test.”
“No, no, no!”  her brother gasped, grabbing on to her shirt, “I’m cashing in a favor!”
Artemis stopped walking and turned to face him, giving him a skeptical look, “From when?”
“Remember when I told Mom I left her gun in the practice range…”
His sister rolled her eyes, “Okay, but that was a level one offence. Changing your test grade is like a level 3, at least. I mean, they’ll find out, and when they do…”
“I’ll take the blame!”
“Fine. Give it here.”
Apollo grinned, handing his paper to his sister. She ducked into an abandoned room and placed it on the floor, grabbing her standard issue S.H.I.E.L.D pen that everyone on the Hellicarrier used. She carefully filled the 6 in 67 into an 8, then she pulled her own test out.
She narrowed her eyes at Apollo, “You really thought World War Two started in 1914?”
He rubbed the back of his head, “I meant 1941…”
Artemis shook her head, “Yeah, for America.”
“So?”
“It started in 1939 in Europe.”
“Oh…”
“Moron.” She muttered before going back to her work. She perfectly matched her brother’s writing as she filled in enough of his blank answers correctly, to get him to exactly 87%. Then she replicated Coulson’s writing in changing his x’s to ok’s.
“You’re gonna owe me for this.”
“So you’ve said.”
“Make sure you give it to Dad. Mom overanalyzes everything. IN fact, try not to give it to them at all, but you know, if they ask.”
“Thank you so much.”
“If I get grounded for life I’m killing you.”

“I don’t wanna be Princess Leia!” Artemis pouted, stomping her foot on the ground and putting her hands on her hips.
Ethan took a step back, “Okay, fine! You don’t have to!”
“Yes she does!” Apollo argued, “If she’s not Princess Leia, who is? I’m Luke, and we’re twins.”
Artemis crossed her arms, glaring at her brother, “You can be Princess Leia. Then I’ll be Luke Skywalker. You know, since we’re twins.”
“No!” Apollo screamed, “I can’t be Princess Leia, she’s a girl.”
Artemis tilted her head, her eyebrows raised, “And what’s wrong with that?”
“Nothing!” Ethan said swiftly, placing a hand over Apollo’s mouth and stepping between his friends. “Nothing’s wrong with that, I’d be Princess Leia if you wanted, she’s kick-ass, totally awesome.”
Both the twins looked at Ethan and Apollo pushed his friend’s hand off his mouth. They silently scrutinized him for a second before simultaneously saying, “You’re Han Solo.”
Ethan raised his eyebrows before taking a step back and leaning against the wall, allowing his friends to ‘have at it.’
Artemis huffed, looking at her brother “You always get to be Luke.”
“Cause I’m the boy.”
“So?”
“My hair can’t do the bun thing!”
“Wear headphones.”
“But I want a lightsaber.”
“So do I! You’re better with guns anyway.”
“But I’m not in love with Ethan.”
“Neither am I!”
Ethan looked between the two, “Hey!”
They turned to him, both saying, “Stay out of it.” He raised his hands in surrender, sliding down the wall and sitting on the floor.
“If you don’t let me be Luke…” Artemis started, trying to come up with a threat to ensure her brother’s compliance. Suddenly, her eyes widened and her eyebrows raised as she started grinning at Apollo. He looked nervous, taking a half step back as she continued, “I’ll tell mom you don’t Leia is as good as Luke.”
Apollo bit his lip, looking at his sister, “You wouldn’t…”
“Try me.”
He let out a hesitant sigh, before handing the lightsaber over to his sister, “Just this once.”
Artemis smirked, taking the lightsaber and handing her brother some headphones, “Unless I want to be Luke again.”
Artemis’ POV

I’d been hearing whispers of a hooded archer vigilante patrolling around New York, taking out small crime like muggers, gang members, and purse-snatchers. I told my brother, and he made the obligatory reference to the TV series Arrow, and blew it off, but I followed the archer closer. Last week, the Archer made a massive Russian Mob bust, and was interviewed and photographed by some reporters.
The girl couldn’t have been more than a teenager, and a young one at that. She was dressed in black pants with high black boots and a dark purple hoodie. She had her hood up, but I could see hints of jet black hair pointing out, and through her mask, I could see her blue eyes. She had a small stature, no more than 5’2, and about 90 pounds from what I could see. She didn’t answer any of the reporters’ questions aside from one. When they asked for her name, she told them it was Hawkeye, and that caught my attention.
I told my brother, and he agreed, we had to find this ‘Hawkeye’ and set her straight, because who was she to be using that name? Our father’s name, without our permission. So, we set off for New York.
Honestly, ‘Hawkeye’ wasn’t hard to find. The girl was clearly untrained in any kind of stealth, though she was admittedly good with a bow, just not as good as me. When we spotted her saving a girl from a would be rapist, I gestured for my brother to go to the other side of the alley, while I intervened with a strategically placed arrow pinning the jerk to the wall by his shirt collar.
The girl ran off as ‘Hawkeye’ jumped into a defensive position. I gracefully leapt from my position on the roof-top and landed in front of her.
“Easy there Hawkeye,” I tell her, “Or, whatever your name really is.”
Her eyes widened when she saw me, her mouth slipping open, “Huntress?” she asked, “The real Huntress? Leader of the Avengers, the daughter of Black Widow and…oh.”
“Yeah.” Apollo said, dropping down behind her, “Oh.”
She spun to face him as he walked over to the scum stuck to the wall, punching him in the face to knock him out.
“You up for a midnight jaunt across the rooftops?” I ask her.
‘Hawkeye’ had her eyes trained on her expensive-looking combat boots, but she nodded yes, and after my brother called the police to come for the jerk-rod, we were off. The three of us skipped across a few roof-tops, before we stopped on the top of an abandoned building on the outskirts of Manhattan, sitting on the edge with the girl in the middle.
“So you’re Hawkeye now?” I ask, breaking the silence.
“Look, I don’t mean to disrespect your Dad or anything!” she defended, speaking rapidly, “Really, I don’t. It’s just, when I was a little girl, he was my favorite Avenger! I started taking archery lessons because of him! Then, when I found out my Dad was a crazy, evil, nutcase, I had to stop him. So I thought I’d become Hawkeye and…”
“Whoa, whoa, whoa,” I interrupted, “Your Dad is a what?”
She took a deep breath, looking between the two of us before ripping off her mask, “My name is Kate Bishop, and my Dad is a crazy, evil, nutcase. He’ll do anything to ‘help’ his company, including, but not limited to, blowing things up, hiring hitmen, terrorizing people, and making alliances with the Russian Mob and possibly Kingpin, but I haven’t proven that yet.”
“So instead of calling the cops…” Apollo asked.
“I tried calling the cops!” Kate yelled, “But they’re either on his side, or don’t believe me cause I’m a kid…”
“That’s how you made the bust.” I observed.
“Yeah…” she mumbled.
I exchanged a knowing glance with my brother, he nodded, and I put my hand on Kate’s shoulder, “Look, how about we make a deal,” she looked up at me, “You let us help you with this, and we’ll train you to actually be Hawkeye.”
Kate’s eyes widened, “Really?”
“Sure,” my brother smiled, “you need to be worthy of it if you’re going to use it.”

Artemis’ POV

My daughter had her First Birthday party thee other day. The theme was Disney, it was Ethan’s idea. He wanted to have it in Disney World, but I told him to wait until she could actually remember that. He was a bit disappointed, but that didn’t stop him from hiring professional party planners/decorators from redesigning the entire tower.
Now, Nattie received a lot of gifts, almost every superhero/ S.H.I.E.L.D agent in the country was there, but, the one present my baby girl had to latch onto, was the stupid ‘Asgardian drum’ my idiot brother gave her. It’s been two days, and Nattie had not stopped banging on it during every waking hour. And even some should-be-asleep hours, when she climbed out of her crib and found the drum where we’d hidden it in her closet.
Ethan and I were at our whit’s end, to the point that Ethan had locked himself in the lab all day, leaving me to deal with the damn drum.
I was going to kill my brother.
But suddenly, my husband emerged from the lab, clutching something in his hand. He walked over to where Nattie was happily banging away on her drum, “Hey babygirl,” he said sleepily, “I got something for you.”
She stopped hitting the drum, looking up at her father and tilting her tiny head.
Ethan extended his hand, holding a doll out to her. I recognized the shape of the doll, walking over to get a closer look. My husband had taken a standard American-Girl sized ‘little boy’ doll, and transformed it to look like my father in his Avenger’s suit.
I smiled sadly at the doll, before turning my gaze to my daughter. Her big blue eyes were transfixed on the doll, reaching out and making ‘grabby hands’ at it. Ethan chuckled before lowering the toy into her hands. She held it at arm’s length for a long second before clutching it to her chest, and giving my husband a giant smile. I walked over and picked her up, taking her to her room for her nap. Not once did her hold on the doll loosen, and I gave Ethan a grateful gaze over my shoulder.
She didn’t look back at the drum.
And if we locked it in a high-security safe in the basement until Apollo and Grace had a child we could give it to, I wasn’t telling.
