“You really wanna know how to stay alive? You get people to like you. Oh! Not what you were expecting? Well, when you’re in the middle of the games, and you’re starving or freezing, some water, a knife, or even some matches can mean the difference between life and death. And those things only come from sponsors, and to get sponsors, you have to make people like you. And right now, sweetheart, you’re not off to a real good start.”
#51. Nobody is Allowed to Discuss the Alien Teddy Bear Incident. Ever.
First off, everyone had to remember that it was a war and well, people all had their ways of coping. And as every soldier will tell you, between the times you spent getting your ass shot off (Easy Company had more than its share of literal butt shots, for example), shooting at the enemy, trying not to get blown to Kingdom Come - there were the endless hours of waiting.
So everyone had their own ways to deal with that.
Some of these were obvious - letters to wives and sweethearts, pin-up girls, card games, trading stories etc. Some were a bit more…. out there, like Morita and Dugan’s cockroach racing scam. And of course, everyone knew at this point about Rogers and Barnes’ Corporal Bucky Bear.
Cap even got congratulatory cigars from the fellas over at the 101st, with the note, Congratulations, Cap, it’s a bouncing baby bear!
(It was a thank you, really, since Cap and the Commandos toughed it out with the 101st during the Battle of the Bulge. And yeah, the Commandos agreed that nobody at Bastogne needed rescuing by Patton, thanks much.)
Corporal Bucky Bear soon became the subject of one wild story after another, to the chagrin of his human “mama” who would roll his eyes and tell the rest of the guys that “you’re all a buncha smartasses with too much time on your hands!”
It must be said, however, that the Alien Teddy Bear Incident was the absolute truth.
Apparently, HYDRA had managed to somehow bring these small, but fierce little creatures through a botched, never to be replicated experiment with what SSR would later identify as the Cube. It was during a raid of a HYDRA base that the Commandos would find the Alien Teddy Bears, who were going to be subjected to experiments and other untold horrors.
There was nothing to be done for it. They were going to be rescuing the Alien Bears.
Between Captain Rogers and Sergeant Barnes, they managed to gain the trust of the littlest Alien Bear - who would identify himself as Wicket - and they got all seven of the little guys out of there and back to base camp.
When the Alien Teddy Bears discovered that Rogers and Barnes were the proud “parents” of Corporal Bucky Bear, they had all but worshipfully followed both men, but especially Rogers, for the entire length of time they were at camp. Colonel Phillips soon had to get used to the sight of their only super soldier being trailed from behind by seven little Teddy Bears happily “yub-yub”-ing all the while.
“You know,” Mrs. Rogers would observe to his husband, after a while. “I always thought we’d never have babies together but I guess I should’ve known we’d have…. bears?”
Captain Rogers sighed and gave a very happy Wicket an ear rub. “Maybe we should try for an even dozen?”
He got a faceful of blanket for that remark.
However, a mysterious figure who named himself Heimdall would eventually arrive to bring the Alien Teddy Bears home. The Bears were all very sad to leave their “Steeb” and “Mama Bucky” (Bucky’s eye would still twitch at this - it was really all Dum Dum’s fault for teaching the Bears this) but Earth was not their home and they really needed to go back to their true world, in a galaxy, far, far away.
Colonel Phillips would still have to add this as #51 on his Famous List.
Many decades later, a man named George Lucas would be added to SHIELD’s watchlist for the usage of Ewoks in his Star Wars movies.
