Background information/Changes from canon
This takes place about a year after the Skrull Invasion. Norman Osborn is king of the world, all that. Tony has been completely shut out of HAMMER and the Avengers. He is not longer CEO of Stark International, having given the position over to Pepper Potts and taken the title of Chief Technologist. On his way out, Tony did delete the SHRA database, however Osborn does not have enough to arrest Stark, instead keeping him on a short leash. The Extremis was damaged during the invasion and has been effectively useless since. Maria Hill has been doing intelligence work for a private contractor out of Washington DC. Bethany Cabe has been in Germany for the past several years and Rhodey had been receiving his 'upgrades' from Tony himself instead. Luke Cage signed up with Osborn to find his child after the Skrull Invasion. Carol is alive.

And, two little notes: Just for the sake of my sanity, while One More Day has happened in this fic, Tony knows Peter is Spider-Man, seeing as Stark let the guy live in his house for about six months and two, Sydney for all intents and purposes is AI JARVIS, just with a different name.
