That all changed one day as he made his way back to Miss Reed’s apartment one evening after work. He could hear a cry for help. More accurately, he couldn’t avoid hearing it -- The Crimson Queen’s ears were just too powerful. He realized he couldn’t ignore it.
He began to unbutton one sleeve, ready to leap into action. He only paused momentary, knowing he needed to be someplace private to avoid revealing Miss Reed’s identity to the world.

He got a thank you before darting back to Miss Reed’s home.
He knew he was told not to do the whole hero thing, but the secret agency wouldn’t mind that one little thing, right?
