MCU Meme • Nine quotes (3/9):

They say everyone’s born a hero. But if you let it, life will push you over the line until you’re the villain. Problem is, you don’t always know that you’ve crossed that line.

As I held Pepper in my arms she looked up at me with her beautiful blue eyes, “You did it, you fixed me.” she said with a grin on her pale face.

I couldn’t help but smile right back at her. I was glad I could finally touch her without flinching back at the ridiculously high body temperature. My Pepper was fixed, it was about damn time the cloudy skies turned back to normal.

Day 6 - Saturday: Iron Man (2004)/Invincible Iron Man

Who can forget Tony Stark injecting himself with the Extremis virus, turning him into Iron Man inside and out. 

This resulted in Tony being hacked, but made him a tougher component in the Civil War. Regardless he became Director of S.H.I.E.L.D fighting the side effects Extremis had on his mental health. Choices led him to battling the Hulk with his Hulkbuster armor & battling the Mandarin.

While Invincible Iron Man resulted in the famous Tony Stark wiping his mind which happily put him into a coma. This event of rebooting his mind birthed his arc reactor and upgrading Extremis to the Bleeding Edge armor, a fan favourite! Fear Itself arc led to Tony getting an Odin enchanted armor, visiting Asgard & even taking on Odin himself. Also he had a fling with Pepper AND once again had his mind controlled by the Mandarin.

Nerdy Fact #1549: The central villain of Iron Man 3 was originally written as a woman, but it was requested that the character be replaced by a male because the villain’s “toy won’t sell as well if it’s a female." 


Follow up edit: It’s important to note that Disney decided late last year that Ike Perlmutter, the man many saw responsible for Marvel’s sexist marketing practices, no longer oversees the development of Marvel Studios.

“Who pissed on your cloud car?” Darcy asks mentally listing the big bads with the ability to make things…fuzzy.

“I fear it was my brother,” Thor says. His golden fur shining, and the tiny red cape around his shoulders billows becomingly, despite the absence of wind in the room.

“That sucks, big guy,” she says curling her fingers into a fist. She awkwardly reaches out to lightly punch him in the shoulder, careful that her knuckles just graze his golden fur.

“When isn’t it Loki?” Clint gripes as he awkwardly climbs a wooden stool to reach the counter and planting his purple fuzzy ass on the corner. The purple and black arrow on his tummy is fully visible for the first time.

“I don’t think that’s very sanitary,” Maya whispers.

“Right?” Jane says. Betty covers her mouth, shoulders shaking.

“I need a drink,” Tony says dropping a Stark phone on the floor and giving it a vicious kick. The arc reactor on his belly glows bright and a beam of white light shoots out hitting the phone and turning it into a pile of ash. “I really don’t know what I was expecting.”

“Any word from War Machine or Falcon where Loki is now, JARVIS?” Steve says blue paws curled on his hips, or at least the sides of his very round belly. The star on the centre of his belly is a white star with a dark blue outline.

“There is no update yet from the Colonel. I will inform you as soon as they report in.”

“Thank you, JARVIS.”

“I’m gonna tear off his head and sh-”

“Buck,” Steve barks out.

“Eat me,” Bucky Barnes bear says, flipping Steve off with his metal arm.

“Is it just me or did the frown get deeper on the angry little cloud on Bucky’s belly?” Darcy asks.

“It’s not just you,” Betty says.

Bruce and Natasha are the only Avengers bears not currently freaking out, Natasha was always calm and collected, even when turned into a red bear with a wicked looking hourglass on her black tummy. Bruce’s fur is a vibrant green, a blocky green fist at the center of his tummy. His glasses are perched on the end of his nose at a vaguely jaunty angle and he is wringing his paws together fretfully.

“I’m gonna tickle their tummies,” Darcy says.

“You can’t, we don’t know what will happen,” Betty says.

“I’ll take the risk,” Darcy says kneeling down to tickle the smiling star on Steve’s furry belly. Steve giggles, squirms and the star on his belly glows brightly. He runs to hide behind Bucky and the angry little storm cloud on his belly. “Okay, okay, I’m done.”

“Well?” Jane asks, not so subtly snapping pictures on her phone to send to Helen.

“So, so worth it.”

“Loki is gonna pay for this. I’m gonna shoot him myself,” Clint growls rubbing his paw over his furry tummy.

au meme (otherwise known as shameless wish fulfillment)

after Maya Hansen survives the attempt on her life, Pepper convinces Tony to put a good word in for her with SHIELD’s science division: once hired, she’s sent to the Academy in hopes that she’ll be able to work behind the scenes and also pick up some of what she missed from never having attended, and in no time at all she and Anne Weaver grow close.  Anne saves her life when the Academy is overthrown by HYDRA, and after getting as many of the students as possible to safety, the two women go on the run, eventually coming across Victoria Hand in a swank hotel in Vancouver: after making sure they’re not among the traitors (she’s especially wary of Maya) she explains that she faked her death at the hands of one of said traitors and has been hiding out since, only keeping in contact with her fellow former agent (and ex-girlfriend) Isabelle Hartley; Isabelle is the one who clears Anne’s plan to reform the Academy with SHIELD’s new director Coulson, and after her own narrow escape from death she joins the other three women in London, where Isabelle’s recovery and the renovation of an old SHIELD base to serve as the new Academy are the priorities (and rekindling romance is a side benefit).

(wait, you mean this isn’t actually what happened?)
