Am I doing this right
DON’T FUCKING TELL ME NATASHA IS COLD AND HEARTLESS.
Remember how he jokingly threatened her and got a powerfully afraid reaction?
Then remember when he cornered and almost killed her as the Hulk?
This man lives under an avalanche of guilt about the way he’s treated this woman.
And what she says here is, “you’re useful. We need you. Your abilities are a benefit to this situation.”
There is no higher compliment from Natasha. The kind of woman who will bare her soul to an evil god in order to get the information she needs from him values utilitarianism above all else.
She’s comforting him here, reminding him that even though he’s different, even though they’ve clashed, she needs and wants him on the team.
NATASHA ROMANOFF IS A QUEEN.
i’m starting up a club it’s called “STEVE ROGERS IS BISEXUAL AND YOU CAN’T CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE” who’s in
America for a Bisexual Cap
Mama Fury on waking up the Avengers.
LOKI IS FUCKGN DUCT TAPED TO THE BED I SIMPLY CANNOT
I don’t think there will ever come a time when I won’t reblog this.
I would like to make one thing very clear: Fury’s wearing a dressing gown and bunny slippers.
Vocally political and liberal Steve Rogers
Fox News has no idea how to handle it because he’s Captain America and he’s literally from the 40’s like how do that handle that
He refuses to go on half of the news shows because they lie
Mostly ends up on the Daily Show, the Colbert Report, and the Young Turks
Starts charities that focus on kids and the poor
Donations to veterans charities go through the roof
Treatment for PTSD in veterans suddenly gets addressed after he admits to being diagnosised with it
Steve Rogers starting a twitter specifically for linking people to horrible news stories and calling news stations out on their lies and scare tactics
Using his twitter to complain about the state of public news and how it should be a space of change and value and honesty for the American public, and how he’s so ashamed of it all
He accidentally becomes like public face for the new generation of politically savvy people
They make of shirts like WWCD “what would Cap do?”
Tony is thrilled and proud and hires of team of lawyers exclusively to handle the news stations screaming about Steve
Fox news gets slapped with so many libel fines and law suits
Going on a show and regretting it the moment an offensive question or comment comes up and decides he’s completely done and just tears the interviewer a new one. It goes viral.
The public face thing is just the start. It starts this whole new wave of people that shut down offensive shit during interviews and holding their own.
There is a short time period once he turns 35 where there is a rally cry of “Captain America for President” that he gracefully turns down.
But politicians starting courting him, trying to get him to publicly state that they support him because his influence is just so massive, and they keep getting shut down hard
Talks about growing up in the depression when people bring up financial issues - says things like “With all due respect, ma’am, what others may remember as being over 80 years ago was less then 5 ago to me. Things were supposed to get better. Those issues we thought we fixed were supposed to go away - we were supposed to work to a future where it was gone - and instead it seems to be worse then ever.”
And of course he’s a raging feminist and is absolutely appalled when Natasha tells him about rape statistics
Bruce takes a lot of time to fully educate him about the social and medical side of abortions, teaches him about the various birth defects and medical issues the mothers can face, shows him the demographic information of access and need, and Steve is horrified by that too
Then Tony walks him through gay rights and other LGBTQ issues, all of them helping him understand how sexuality can manifest differently and the difference between sex and gender identity
Steve just REAL FUCKIN DONE with everything.
Angrily stands in protest rallies and dares people to start something with peaceful protesters. Just DARES them.
Rolls his eyes at baby boomer articles about the newer generations. He’s heard that mess before. He’s done with it.
Understanding people have problems with medical bills, having been there himself.
Fucking standing up for single mothers becaUSE LIKE WHOA THAT’S HIS MOTHER YOU JUST DISSED.
Steve Rogers hating bullies. Hates that kids are actually KILLING THEMSELVES because of bullying and people are just “oh boys will be boys” about it and he’s just LIVID.
I would go into debt to read this comic. This is what Captain America should be. This is what America should be.
cries i want to embrace this post forever
Peaceful protests staying peaceful because when the cops try to start something it doesn’t matter how many of them there are, Steve’s there and he will shut them down, but more than that: Steve gets pepper sprayed. Steve gets chemical burns. Steve on shaky iphone video blind and disoriented and still using his body to protect others as the cops close in. And suddenly the heroes who stay back because they don’t want to get involved - because they shouldn’t use their powers ‘like that’ start showing up in droves.
Peter gumming up the smoke and pepper bombs before they go off. Thor becoming a one man blockade. Natasha working with organizers to help plan for escapes if things do go badly. Tony’s not only keeping Cap up to date - he’s putting considerable money behind the political candidates who will actually work to improve things, because we all know you need money to represent at the polls. They’re not there attacking the police - even if the officers are being assholes, they understand they have a job to do and often bad orders - but they will protect the protesters who have done nothing but show up.
And the more they do, the more heroes join in. Because it’s not just about using your powers against the mighty evil empire Strexx or taking down some guy calling himself the Boomerang. It’s about making sure you want to keep living in the world you keep saving.
I remember a shadow, living in the shade of your greatness. I remember you tossing me into an abyss, I who was and should be king.
WOAH WOAH WOAH
So you are telling me
That you are going to do a LOKI SPIN OFF before a female lead superhero movie
is that what you’re saying
"ok so who should we do a movie for next? Black Widow? Carol Danvers? She-Hulk? Squirrel Girl?"
"NAH FUCK THAT LET’S JUST DO A LOKI MOVIE THE KIDS’LL LOVE IT"
Humanity. Look how far you’ve fallen. Lining up in the sweltering heat for hours. Huddling together in the dark like beasts. (x)
Okay, so, in the interests of full disclosure: when it comes to Loki my opinions run very much to the “Not my circus, not my monkey” end of the spectrum. I actually find MCU!Loki’s Beatlemaniac fan following really, really amusing because 616!Loki is such a second-stringer it’s not even funny.
But I will say this: there are few things in this world that warm my heart as easily or as fully as seeing actors and writers and crewmates of the kinds of films I love having this much genuine fun doing what they do and going far out of their way to interact with fans. So all my love to you, Tom Hiddleston and Marvel Studios and the promoters at SDCC, for continuing to make being a fan of comics and comic book movies what it should be: fun.
Dragon Age/Thor crossover suggested by Chakwas.
I should have given Loghain the Loki horns but OH MY GOD ARMOR WHY.
i saw the trailer for the porn parody of the avengers and
