Amara asked Tony to leave as he tried to talk to her, and even confessed his love to her.

Professor Leonard Williams alias Tyrone Cash was originally a brilliant British scientist, working at Cambridge University. He was working on a version of the Super-Soldier Serum when Bruce Banner joined his team. Like Banner, Williams hated his body, and like Banner, Williams had his own agenda for wanting to perfect the process. Once the serum was completed, Williams took it, and went from Banner’s mentor to his predecessor as the Hulk. He killed several people and escaped from the university, and has been on the run ever since. He abandoned his old life, allowing everyone to believe he was dead, using his incredible intellect to evade capture for sixteen years. [8]
