“That shield doesn't belong to you. My father made that shield”
— Tony to Steve

Stony is the slash ship between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark in the Avengers fandom.



Marvel - Avengers - Stony - Avengers Vol 1 4

While Stark was growing up, he was told of the legends of Captain America and was amazed when they found his body frozen in a block of ice. They first met when the revived Cap awoke and noticed his situation had drastically changed. He immediately asks Tony Stark—in the form of Iron Man—where he was.


Earth-3490 - Stony

Earth-3490 is a universe that appeared in Dark Reign: Fantastic Four Vol 1 #2 as an alternative universe where the civil war ended differently. In this universe, the civil war was adverted because the female version of Tony Stark: Natasha Stark and Steven Rogers were romantically involved with each other and later got married. In this universe, Stony is canon.



During Tony's childhood, his father, Howard, would constantly talk about the great Captain America, so as to inspire Tony to do great things in life. However, this greatly annoyed young Tony Stark, who felt inferior to Captain America in his father's eyes. When Fury informs Stark of the Avengers Initiative he learns that Captain America is alive. They meet for the first time in Stuttgart, working together to subdue Loki and succeed. Tony commented on Rogers' fighting skills and in true Stark mode mocks Captain America.

Once the full team is assembled at S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Helicarrier and working to decode Loki's sceptre, Steve and Tony's personalities clash, mainly due to Tony's reckless nature masking his insecurity, which Steve sees right through, but feels can endanger the team, such as Tony attempting to provoke Dr. Banner into transforming. They almost get into a fistfight, Steve saying that Stark is not a true hero, who will "lay down on the wire and let the other guy crawl over him" and Tony recants that the only reason Rogers is special is the Super Soldier Serum. They are interrupted by a brainwashed Hawkeye's attack and the subsequent threat of the Hulk.

They are forced to work as a team, which they do quite well and it alters their perspective on one another. Steve tries to console Tony following Coulson's death at the hands of Loki. Both Stark and Rogers helped to defeat the Chitauri. Rogers gave out orders and instructed Stark to take to the skies and take out more Chitauri. As an attempt to stop a bomb, Stark enters the portal where the Chitauri were. However, Rogers ordered the portal to be closed after there was no response from Stark. Luckily, Stark returned to Earth to a smiling Rogers who informed him that they won. After the battle, Stark and the rest of the Avengers went to the Shawarma Palace where they ate silently.


The Avengers are helping Thor locate Loki's sceptre, whilst working to dissolve Hydra cells. Tony is insecure about Captain America being the leader, but accepts it. Tony's fear of causing the death of his friends and team mates leads him to try and create an A.I. combatant in secret, with the help of Bruce. Tony and Steve disagree on the measures Tony is taking.

Yoshida Ultron

Yoshida Ultron is a title given to Ultron shipping Stony, first introduced in Civil War Collision Course(a brainmade movie by user Our Green Tornado).

Civil War Collision Course

With the loss of their Avengers parents at the hands of Ultron and raised by billionaire bachelor Tony Stark AKA Iron Man, four orphaned teens, James Rogers (son of Captain America and Black Widow), Torunn (daughter of Thor and Jane Foster), Henry Pym Jr. (son of Hank Pym and Wasp), and Azari (son of Black Panther), must live up to their parents' legacy and defeat Ultron, the mechanical and maniacal foe that defeated them. Additional allies are recruited including Vision, Bruce Banner AKA the Hulk and Francis Barton (son of Hawkeye and Laura Barton). With the aid of the Hulk, Ultron is defeated with his true motives unknown. Le Star-Lord, leader of the Guardians Of The Galaxy, finds Ultron in space and revives him, then prays to the One Above All to resurrect the fallen Avengers and rejuvenate the surviving ones. The crew(and the Next Avengers) meet up with Ant-Man, Spider-Man, the Winter Soldier, Falcon and Scarlet Witch in the Avengers Mansion.

Meanwhile, Ultron performs a lone roleplay based on the legend of the Hawaiian goddess Hi'iaka in his evil lair, about his duty as Yoshida and the relationship of Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. Le Star-Lord visits him with her teammates and tells him about Daredevilosa(who will also appear in Operation Shendak 2:Homecoming alongside Astereae, the main villain), her greatest enemy in the Avengers fandom. They go to the Avengers mansion and warns everybody else about Daredevilosa's arrival, but the Next Avengers refuse to listen. Later, James meets a blonde girl named Thriffith Whitmore, who becomes the second Black Widow and the two fall in love. Le Star-Lord has a little conversation with her most favored teammate Star-Lord AKA Peter Quill and his lover Ronan The Accuser about her super-secret plan, then finds James in the mansion gardens. She tells him about the secret of the strange logo on Iron Captain America's shoulder(the circular one, half Iron Man's arc reactor and half Captain America's shield), telling that Tony engraved that logo into everything that reminds him of Steve, including even James. He says that "it can't be", but finds the logo as a tattoo on his arm, and bursts into tears.

As the final battle approaches, Steve is forced to choose between Tony and Natasha. Discovering that what Le Star-Lord was raving about was right, James visits Ultron and apologizes to him, and tells him about ohana, a term for "family" he learned from Azari. Ultron begins a wild race through the streets to fulfill his task, but is too late and everybody tearfully watches Tony die because of the attack Natasha did on him. Steve clings to him as he tells him that while he kept saying that he needed him, Tony needed Steve more. He says that he is his ohana and, therefore, will always love him and breaks down in tears. Very much like the Legend of Hi'iaka, Tony is revived from the sincere love from his family.

Later, Le Star-Lord, wearing a tech suit that Tony made for her, faces off against Daredevilosa in some sort of virtual world, and is almost killed. The One Above All uses his powers to upgrade the suit into a cross between Captain America and Iron Man(Civil Warrior), and Le Star-Lord triumphs against Daredevilosa, using her arc shield to draw a deadly asteroid from outer space.

Later, at a nightpark called the Star-Filled Park, Steve and Tony get hitched, with Star-Lord and Ronan as their best men and Ultron as their officiator(it was Le Star-Lord's super-secret plan, after all.). James and Thriffith are a couple, and feelings develop between Torunn and Francis.
