We sit beside the pillar on the top stair of the building's entrance; my nephew, niece and me. Directly ahead of us, a few steps down, are three individuals in orange jumpsuits standing with their backs to us. "Why do they have bags on their heads?" my nephew quizzes.
"They're pretending to be prisoners" is my response, baiting him to continue. "Did they do something wrong?" he complies. We discuss how these are a different kind of prisoner – the exception to the rule – and who it is they represent: the Tooting two.
"These are the goodies" I tell him. He sits a moment taking it in – the thinker that he is – and then – making that sudden link kids always do – he asks of those who took them: "Like Loki? Are they like Loki?" I tilt my head and smile. Just the day before he had watched Avengers Assemble for the very first time.
