"Oxygen will run out tomorrow. And that'll be it. And Pep, I ... I know I said no more surprises, but I was really hoping to pull off one last one. But it looks like... well you know what it looks like."
Tony Stark[src]

The Rescue of Tony Stark was a rescue mission executed by Captain Marvel that resulted in Tony Stark and Nebula being safely returned to Earth after being lost in deep space for multiple weeks trying to return themselves.


"Hey, Miss Potts... Pep. If you find this recording... don't post it on social media. It's gonna be a real tear-jerker. I don't know if you're ever gonna see these. I don't even know if you're still..."
Tony Stark[src]

Tony Stark preparing a message to Pepper Potts

After the Snap, Tony Stark and Nebula, who were the only survivors on Titan resorted to the Benatar in hopes of returning to Earth and reuniting with the Avengers. The Benatar only had a few supplies left since Stark and Nebula had been on the ship for more than twenty days. Emaciated from lack of food and water, Stark recorded a message using his helmet for Pepper Potts explaining his situation on his time in space. Becoming lightheaded from exhaustion, Stark concluded that he will dream about Potts in his sleep before turning off the recording. Afterwards, Stark drifted off to sleep as Nebula sympathized for him.[1]


Benatar (New Avengers Facility)

Captain Marvel returning the Benatar to Earth

"Couldn't stop him."
"Neither could I."
"I lost the kid."
"Tony, we lost."
Tony Stark and Steve Rogers[src]

Shortly after Tony Stark started drifting off to sleep, he was awakened by a blinding light emitted from Captain Marvel traveling through space. After Captain Marvel found Stark and Nebula aboard the Benatar, she brought it back to the New Avengers Facility on Earth. In the middle of the field, Stark exited out of the ship and was reunited with Steve Rogers, Pepper Potts, and the rest of the Avengers that survived the Snap, while Nebula comforted a sorrowful Rocket Raccoon on the steps of the Benatar.[1]

The Avengers locate Thanos' coordinates

"Bruce gave him a sedative. He's gonna probably be out for the rest of the day."
James Rhodes to Steve Rogers[src]

At the New Avengers Facility, the remaining Avengers conversed about the possible location of Thanos. When Steve Rogers asked Tony Stark if he had any indications of where Thanos could be, Stark erupted and told Rogers that he had no information. Stark then confronted Rogers, explaining that his attempt to build a suit of armor around the world was to prevent the very situation they were in. After the sedative Stark had passed out and rested due to his long duration in space, the remaining Avengers were able to locate Thanos on Planet 0259-S and flew there in the Benatar, only to realize the Infinity Stones had been destroyed.[1]
