- "I'm Ian, Darcy's intern. I don't get paid, either."
- ―Ian Boothby
Ian Boothby is the intern and love interest of Darcy Lewis.
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.
Following 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.
- "Do you even know what these things do?"
"Neither do I."
- ―Darcy Lewis and Ian Boothby
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.
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.
Peak-Human Strength: Ian Boothby was capable of bearing the weight of an entire car and dropping it on two enemies simultaneously without hurting himself, a feat his girlfriend and most men were incapable of repeating.
