All of the Avengers have fears. Some of them are more severe than the others, and some are no more than an irrational phobia.
Tony is scared of failure. He thinks that one day he’s just going to lose it- everyone he loves will leave him, everything he’s worked for will go down the drain, and he’ll just be left completely alone.
Steve hates of the cold. Whenever the group goes out during Winter, he always makes sure that he’s wearing multiple layers to keep from shivering. Coldness brings back terrible memories for Steve.
Clint is afraid of sleeping. He hasn’t had a good night’s rest in at least ten years, and his dreams are filled of his abusive older brother, Barney Barton, and the awful nights of when he was beaten at his childhood orphanage.
Natasha is scared of letting people in. She feels if she lets someone get to know her too well, she’ll be betrayed like she always previously was, and end up getting hurt by them. She wants to love, but is scared to. Clint is the only one who knows her fear.
Thor is scared of the fact that he’s not fearful of his brother. He fears that his love for Loki will bring him vulnerability- but he can’t bring himself to be scared of Loki. He loves him too much to hate him. Ever.
And Bruce… well. Bruce is afraid of himself.
