oh wait the poll!  
argh, so I tried to add this to the previous post but LJ didn't like it, so here have a poll.

Since my Person of Interest/Avengers crossover mostly deals with Reese, I was wondering what you all who have some familiarity with both would do with Finch. If you want to play along with my crack brain, because of course you do. :)

Harold Finch in the Avengers 'verse:

works for SHIELD
0(0.0%)
works for himself & built the Machine
5(50.0%)
works for himself & built something else but equally cool
2(20.0%)
is a supervillain
0(0.0%)
something else cool I will tell you about in comics
0(0.0%)
loves Ticky and I refuse to answer because you're on crack
3(30.0%)


(oops. That option should read "comments" not "comics", but if you want to tell me in comics, I guess I wouldn't complain...*G*)

I'm torn. I think SHIELD would try to recruit him, and keep an eye on him when he turned them down--but I still think he should also build the Machine, except that I don't think SHIELD would let him do that.

see? THIS IS TRICKY.

I kind of assume 9/11 still happened in Avengers'verse (marvelmovieversegamma? whatever), since the WTC doesn't exist. So if that still happened (even if it was by some other terrorist group) I imagine that was one of the things that led to the creation or at least stronger funding for SHIELD plus still provided the impulse for threat detection. and if so, Nathan and Harold may have still been tapped to make it - maybe by Shield itself? Or by the NSA still? But of course, it could also go a very different way since it seems like science is further advanced Over There which would give a bright guy like Harold other paths.

Although since we don't yet know why he's 'dead' and living under a pseudonym maybe he's a refugee from, like, Genosha or some other weirdass Marvel place... (this is where too much familiarity gets me in trouble!)

I'm tempted by the supervillain option. Mostly because I want Finch wearing his glasses and a big Loki-style helmet with horns.

If Finch worked for SHIELD, he probably has a mundane desk job. It's his disguise while he still secretly does his own thing... like build the Machine. (I can see him as a supervillain more easily than Finch actually working willingly with a lot of other people.)

BRB DIED AT THE IMAGE OF FINCH WITH GLASSES AND LOKI HELMET. LOLOL

but yeah, Finch is totally a proto-supervillain isn't he? It's easy to see how he could go awry - he's already very arrogant and outside the law. He's like one trauma away from going too far with it. That's why it's hard to decide what to do with him. It's funny to think of him just sitting quietly on the bridge of the Helicarrier using his powers for good, but it's also fun to think of him crouched in some computer lair doing something nefarious.

If I could draw at all, I would make this. Because the idea is far too appealing not to.
