"I'm Ian, Darcy's intern. I don't get paid, either."
―Ian Boothby[src]

Ian Boothby is the intern and love interest of Darcy Lewis.


Early Life

Interest in Birdlife

As a child, Ian Boothby and his father went bird watching on a usual basis. Thanks to this, he learned how to identify different species of birds.[1]


Following Darcy Lewis

"He's my intern; my intern's intern."
Jane Foster[src]
Phase Meter1

Boothby and Darcy Lewis

Boothby was hired by Darcy Lewis as her unpaid intern. Boothby was a big fan of Jane Foster and first appeared to her when he popped up in the back seat of Lewis's car, startling her. He helped to guide the women to the anomaly after Foster left her date with Richard Madison.[1]

Battle of Greenwich

"Do you even know what these things do?"
"Neither do I."
―Darcy Lewis and Ian Boothby[src]

Boothby, Erik Selvig, and Darcy Lewis witness the Convergence

Boothby acted as Erik Selvig's son when taking him out of the mental facility after he and Lewis saw his arrest on the news. As the Convergence approached and Foster let the others know of the coming of Malekith, Boothby and Lewis placed the Gravimetric Spikes in the ground that could manipulate the Wormholes created.

During the Battle of Greenwich, Boothby saved Lewis from the Dark Elves by picking up a car and slamming it onto the elves, killing them. When Foster and Selvig used the teleporter, Lewis and Boothby teleported and were kissing with Lewis holding him.[1]


Hardly any different from Darcy Lewis, Ian Boothby was a helpful and well-meaning, though eccentric and awkward teenager. He was also brave, defending his lover from Dark Elves.
