a collection of thoughts about bruce banner, all based off the one picture of him in peter’s science class

  • tony visits peter’s school for whatever reason, and happens to walk in during that class. he sees the picture of bruce. snaps a photo of it on his phone to show him later. makes passing conversation along of the lines of “well, it makes sense. he is a genius, after all. and now a bunch of you will learn that! well. some of you will learn that. the rest of you twerps won’t pay attention. did you know he has a thing for blueberries? not sure about their muffin form, though. i’ll have to ask.”
  • tony eventually texts him the photo and bruce isn’t sure why, exactly, tony has a closeup of a black and white picture of his face
  • then tony follows it up with a picture of the entire row of scientists and bruce notices the whiteboard underneath it and tony says “you’re in good company. smart company, at least. the only downside is that you’re in high school again.”
  • and then it starts to click that what he’s done is being taught in science classes
  • he’s part of the curriculum. him. his work and his accomplishments are being taught and remembered. not the hulk.
  • not the hulk.
  • bruce banner sees a black and white photo of himself next to nikola tesla and he sees a legacy he’s not ashamed of
  • he sees all the scientists he read about and researched, the ones who inspired him in high school, and he sees himself next to them.
  • he sees a possibility that he can be one of them for this new generation, that now he can maybe be someone who gives some kid hope and motivation the same way they did for him.
  • it’s a good feeling. 
  • meeting peter parker, who trips over his words and vigorously shakes his hand, who talks quickly and excitedly about what he knows about bruce’s work? being able to recognize that peter’s nervousness comes out of awe and respect and not fear? that’s a good feeling, too.
Digitally reconstructed skull and face may reveal Robert the Bruce, king-hero of the Scots

Could this be the face of Robert the Bruce, as it has never been seen before?

Scientists and historians have joined forces to create detailed virtual images of what could be the head of Robert the Bruce, reconstructed from the cast of a human skull held by the Hunterian Museum.

The realistic images are the outcome of a collaboration between historians from the University of Glasgow and craniofacial experts from Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU).

One image depicts the subject in his prime, a large and powerful male head that would have been supported by a muscular neck and stocky frame – a match for the super-athletes of today. This was a privileged individual who enjoyed the benefits of a first-class diet, and whose physique would have equipped him for the brutal demands of medieval warfare. Read more.

(I don’t know the exact source of the image, but it was too awesome not to use. I found it here)

The clubhouse is located conveniently on the edge of the town’s centre. Just close enough to attract customers to the garage, just far enough to keep any potential heat from innocent ‘civilians’. When Bucky approached the gates open instantly. The prospect, Johnny, waves and closes the gate as soon as you passed it. The garage is closed but still buzzing with activity and it seems the guys followed your directions by the letter; they cleaned up and decorated the yard to make it look like one could actually enjoy themselves there instead of just getting oiled and dirty.
