Another interesting chapter with more detail given on Harry's early life and the character of Tony Stark in this continuity. It makes sense that Harry would not have a prejudiced bone in his body, having been in continual close contact with various permutations of magic user, mutants and accidental metas like the Fantastic Four.
I presume that the blonde guy was Captain Britain, but I didn't recognise his companion. Good idea in making it necessary to have some kind of magical talent to break the wards. Making technology always beat magic would be boring. I suspect that Dumbledore will live to regret not learning the lesson of Tony breaching the wards and beating his compulsion charm.
Now: I have this image in my head of the First Task of the Triwizard Cup and Harry walking out... in a version of the Iron Man armour, but in Ravenclaw blue and silver (inadvertantly recalling his Uncle Jim's War Machine armour) and powered by a mix of Harry's magic and muggle science. The Invincible Technomage would then have been born. :D
A great story. Always looking forward to more!

Yeah, Brian Braddock, Captain Britain. His companion was Megan, currently his wife, but not then. She is an environmental empath...
I wasn't all that clear on Tony not being able to find the castle. The tech worked fine, but the human element failed, and Tony couldn't get through the Muggle avoidance ward.
Oh thanks a whole lot. I wasn't planing on armor, but now I can't get the image of a blue and silver war machine mech out of my head.
Thanks for the review.
