Well Disney DOES Own Marvel
An alternative ending to Frozen that maximizes the Disney assets and brings us a super-ending.
DO THE HARLEM SHAKE
Steve where are you this is what they get up to when they aren’t supervised.
Headcanon: Abed only got his job at SHIELD as a spousal benefit when they recruited Troy for their gadgets division
Evidence, incontrovertible: When everything else in Fury’s car was broken, what was still 100% operational? THE AIR CONDITIONING.
Bunny, related: Abed meets Sam while visiting Troy in the hospital and explains to him, scene by scene, why he is definitely the lead in a romcom, not the sidekick in an action movie.
OH MY GOD
”..Who the hell is Natasha?”
I became so engrossed in the idea of Natasha being the Winter Soldier I COULDN’T HELP IT
THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER
I literally started crying in the cinema at this because seriously fuck you, Steve. There are so many people going ~SEXUAL TENSION~. But no. No. This is just cruel. And tony’s comebacks are in no way even close to being as mean; for tony they’re rather weak and stumbly. Because do you see his face there? Steve just fucking ripped him to shreds. And i’m crying now; this just breaks my heart. You’ve seen the footage, Steve? Really? Have you really? You’ve seen him as he watched kids being killed by his own weapons? You’ve seen him being tortured? You’ve seen the only person who believed in him as a person die in front of him? Do you actually get that there is a fucking hole in his chest? That the fact that he’s even alive is a fucking miracle like a hundred times over. One which he’s clawed into existence with his own hands and genius. You’ve seen the closest person he had to a father literally rip his heart from his chest? You’ve seen how he then had to kill that closest person he had to a father? You’ve seen how he was dying all alone and yet STILL attempted to save everyone around him? WITHOUT HIS SUIT Oh yeah you’ve seen the fucking footage haven’t you? I don’t think you get, Steve how much you can’t take those words back. Years from now they’re still going to be rattling around in tony’s head echoing every crappy thought he’s ever had about himself. It just makes me so mad. I love you Steve, but nothing justifies what you said to him. Nothing.
Okay, YOU GUYS KNOW MY TONY FEELS ARE LEGION, and of course this scene got me right in the sympathetic arc reactor and everything, RIGHT IN THE FEELINGS, but. I think, first and foremost, that this film reminded me of something I’d kind of forgotten in the last few months of FEELS FROM TRAILERS etc: these are people. Uh. Violent people? Who have killed…other people…I mean, in the name of justice, typically, but still. They don’t exactly operate the way other people do; in fact, their (and I mean the whole team, here) mutual tendencies towards being barbed, guarded, overdramatic, mistrusting and hinged, identity-wise, to the idea that they have to save people to have worth is kind of. Um. What makes them superheroes? And of course that doesn’t excuse the fact that Steve is verbalizing Tony’s worst fears here, but at the same time, he doesn’t KNOW they’re Tony’s worst fears, and also I think a certain amount of emotional carnage has to be tax deductible when you get a group like this together? So I don’t think it’s about whether or not Steve can/should be forgiven for this so much as whether he (and Tony) can recognize that he’s incorrect, which they both seem to by the end of the film, considering Tony DOES make that play.
And, secondly, from Steve’s end of things? This entire exchange is about Bucky Barnes. Probably all of the Howling Commandos, actually (don’t forget, Steve’s “Is this the first time you’ve lost a soldier?” is coming from a place of SERIOUS EXPERIENCE), but especially Bucky Barnes. We know he’s having flashbacks, because we see them onscreen; we know he’s not handling the future well, because we see it in his exchanges with Fury, with the punching bags; we know Bucky’s death ripped him apart, because we saw it in TFA. And we see that here. Allow me to translate:
- "I know guys with none of that worth ten of you" —> "MY BEST FRIEND BUCKY BARNES DIDN’T EVEN HAVE SUPER POWERS AND HE WAS AMAZING AND IF HE’D HAD A BIG IRON SUIT HE WOULD’VE BEEN ABLE TO FLY AWAY FROM THAT TRAIN AUGHHHHHH BUCKYYYYYYY"
- "I’ve seen the footage; the only thing you fight for is yourself" —> "THERE ARE ALL THESE VIDEOS OF YOU FIGHTING STUFF AND NONE OF MY FRIEND BUCKY BARNES AND I HAVE TO WORK WITH YOU AND YOU ARE NOT BUCKY, HOW DARE YOU NOT BE BUCKY AUGHHHHHHH BUCKYYYYYYYY”
- "You’re not the guy to make the sacrifice play" —> "BUCKY SACRIFICED HIMSELF FOR ME AND IT HAUNTS ME EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY AUGHHHHH BUCKYYYYY"
- "To lay down on a wire to let the other the other guy crawl over you" —> "MY IDEA OF MODERN WARFARE IS STILL FAIRLY HEAVILY BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE IN WORLD WAR II WHICH I FOUGHT IN WITH A SQUADRON OF MEN I HANDPICKED AND TRUSTED TO DO THAT FOR ME, ESPECIALLY BUCKY WHO YOU STILL AREN’T AUGH BUCKYYYYYYYYYYYY”
- "Always a way out" —> "LIKE BUCKY DIDN’T HAVE AUGHHHHHH BUCKY."
I mean, look, Steve’s totally being a bit of a bag of dicks here, no doubt, but he doesn’t actually KNOW Tony, really. He’s projecting. And these people are bound to be bags of dicks sometimes! So I think it’s less about excusing or not excusing their behavior and more about considering where it comes from, what it means, and how it’s going to affect things in the future. In conclusion: AUGH BUCKY.
okay I kind of love the bullet list translation here
And yes, I can get behind this interpretation. Steve is being a big ol’ bag of dicks, but he isn’t ALWAYS a big bag of dicks. State versus trait, etc etc
Friend of the flock Jesse Hamm (hammpix) writes about his second-most retweeted post (he also did that one about Stonehenge being Easter Island’s toes):
In reality, guys sometimes walk around with their zippers down, but we don’t want to see Captain America with his zipper down, because that wouldn’t glorify him. Does it glorify a heroine to portray her nipple-bumps and boob-creases? If it did, women would aim for this effect all the time… but they don’t, so it doesn’t…
The cliché was that superheroes were best enjoyed by the dorky, un-athletic male nerd. Who had more need than he for heroic inspiration? Well….. how about members of a gender physically smaller than his, who have been oppressed not only throughout childhood but THROUGHOUT HISTORY? How about a gender of people who, unlike him, have INCREASING reason to fear physical assaults as they near maturity, rather than the reverse? Who have LESS earning power than he does, and are held to EVEN HIGHER standards of attractiveness than those he bemoans falling short of? The superhero genre may be for everyone, but it seems women have even greater claim to it than anyone else…
But in the midst of all of this, guys are still drawing superheroines like they’re arm-candy. So does it MATTER how superheroines are portrayed? Yeah. YEAH, I THINK IT DOES.
This is my favorite explanation of why women might care about comics.
I don’t even know, man. Probably an infinite loop of wondering what he thinks of me and analyzing everything he says and everything I say and on and on forever.
Sometimes I’m getting lost in AU hell so have more uh teenage superhero Winter Soldier…stuff
Natasha and Sam are not 100% fixed yet I did those rather impulsively but they get proper ones one of these days I think
Especially Tashas outfit doesnt quite come off as intended but I wanted to show off the tat priorities priorities
For Sam insert cheesy ass falcon wing patches at the back of his jacket (haha remember that Deryl Dixon vest? Daaamn straight you do)
Edit:Ah yes also link to previous design
I love Steve’s outfit.
