I LOVE THIS SO MUCH

This issue was all about finding hope in a bleak universe and I am loving all of the teams being set up. Black Widow’s little Revolutionaries, Tony Stark’s shard seekers, the Defenders, Captain Marvel’s guardians, that one guy at the end (seriously you NEED to read this), and Sam goddamn Wilson.

Shit is gonna go down.

What a great event.

@thehipsterbubble suggested Marvel AU?

1 - Cisco is Iron Man. He doesn’t mean to be, it’s just - well - Dante found out about him working with the Flash and all that during their kidnapping and he basically freaked out and no matter how many times Cisco insists that he’s just back-room tech support, Dante insists he needs to defend himself better. So Cisco makes himself a suit, except it has a lot of tech built into it. He makes it something he can summon quickly. This enables him to save Dante from the car crash, flying him from the scene to the hospital. After that, though, the “Iron Man” is publically known and Barry wants to team up and everything and, well, it’s pretty cool, actually. AND he means he’s nothing like Reverb, even though they both shoot vibrations out of their hands because Reverb never built himself a super-suit.

2 - Laurel Lance joins them as the Black Canary again, because after her resurrection she gets to see the mess that Star City is in and just…she needs a break. Someone else has her name in that city, someone else has her place, and she just - she’s done. for now. Central extends her an offer and she’s happy to go. She’s more of a legal-minded Black Widow, but people start making “Avengers” jokes. She brings Thea with her as her Hawkeye, because wow, if anyone ever needed a break from Star City.

3 - The Avengers jokes get so much worse when Mick accidentally snaps at Sara in the middle of an event that takes place in the middle of Central in front of a bunch of cameras. References are made to “being stuck under the Atlantic since World War II” and “broke through brainwashing” and even “saved George Washington by myself” and “remember how I helped fight back the alien invasion?!”. Mick quits the Legends and returns to Central, only to find out that his reputation has changed from “crazy arsonist thief” to “Captain America”. When they finally manage to resurrect Len, some newspaper person gets the brilliant idea of putting the headline “Captain Cold - Winter Soldier - Returns!” and suddenly LEN’s a hero too, which, Mick!!!!

4 - Kara visits. She doesn’t know why everyone is gleefully greeting her as Thor, the God of Thunder, but she kinda likes it because they’re not, like, acting like she’s a must-be-worshiped sort of god? More of a “god that’s everybody’s buddy” sort of god, which, hey, COOL. Everyone’s super impressed with the heat-eyes and the frost-breath and they even give her a really cool hammer made of something that they call “dwarf star alloy” and it’s really funny because it’s way too heavy for everyone else to lift! She loves Earth-1. They’re all so sweet.

5 - Barry is now in charge of the Avengers. He’s totally cool with being Quicksilver except he’s obviously so much faster. Life is good. He wonders if he should, like, try to give Gideon a body to create Vision except that worked so badly in “Age of Ultron” he’s thinking maybe he shouldn’t. (Iris is the Scarlet Witch. She has no powers, but that doesn’t stop her from being an epic superhero. Also, like Barry, red is totally her color.)

6 -  Barry totally does insist on bringing in Ray to help out at one point so he can be Ant-Man. The newspapers go wild. Jax immediately claims the role of the Flaming Falcon because he loves Falcon. Falcon is awesome.

7 - Caitlin is the Hulk, except icier. She’s getting help for her rage issues! She swears!

You and me

Sequel to You make everything better, but can be read as a stand-alone.

Word Count: 1.3K
Pairing: Peter Parker x Reader (No gender specified)
Summary:  After Peter recounts the events of his fight with Captain America and his team, confessions are made.
Warnings: None.
A/N: I wrote this today because I wanted to take my mind off of the other things I’m writing that have backstories and more complicated plots– which means that this is fluff and a lil angst and then fluff again.


You’re sitting cross-legged on Peter’s bed, running your fingers through his hair while he rests his head on your lap. He’s talking animatedly, and from the faraway look in his eyes you can see that he’s lost in his own memories.

“And Bucky Barnes had this super cool metal arm and I touched it! And the Falcon had this awesome drone that threw me out the window and there was this man that Mr. Stark said was called Ant-Man who was like, super tiny.”

“Like an ant?” You ask, straining your face muscles to stop yourself from smiling. He stops talking and gives you an unamused look.

“Yes, obviously. Anyway–” He moves to sit up and you take your hands off his hair. “Spread your legs.” Your eyes widen in surprise and you laugh out loud.

Damn, chivalry sure is dead.” You say in amusement– but the joke takes a couple of seconds to land on Peter. Once it does, his eyes widen and he blushes furiously– jerking back and lifting his hands up, shaking his head.

“I didn’t mean it like that! I– I just wanted to sit between your legs!” You fall back against his pillow, laughing heartily.

I know, babe. Come here.” You manage to say once you’ve controlled yourself. You sit back and spread your legs, opening your arms for him. He covers his face and sighs exaggeratedly before moving at a snail’s pace towards you until he’s finally sitting in front of you, leaning back against your chest.

caityjay13  asked:

Wait, Sam has called out Steve on being racist? I would LOVE to see this! Where does this happen?

He does it a couple of times throughout his friendship with Steve, as late as 2004 or 2005. This is the one that was easiest for me to find (I had handily titled it “Falcon calls racism”). I don’t think it’s necessarily Falcon calling Steve out on racism directly, more like calling racism out in general, but I think it’s demonstrative of how the comic was written, and how far we haven’t come with regards to racism both in the country and in the comics. This is from Captain America and the Falcon #194, dated to 1976: 

Also: yes, they ARE sharing a bedroom fifties-married-couple-in-a-sitcom style. This time it’s because they’re undergoing scientific testing, but they did this kind of thing all the time. They’d just…hang out together. In a hotel room. Talkin’ about politics while one of them bathed. 

Seriously you guys, the early Captain America And The Falcon comics were awesome

SpaceX announced they are planning to send their Red Dragon capsule to Mars as soon as 2018

To send Red Dragon spacecraft to Mars, SpaceX is building a mega-rocket called Falcon Heavy. Based on the company’s successful Falcon 9, Falcon Heavy consists of three core rocket stages, each of which is equipped with landing legs for reusability. They would use the capsule’s thrusters to make a landing. 

This artist’s illustration shows how the capsule could enter Mars’ atmosphere. SpaceX has successfully returned their capsules to Earth during space station resupply missions for NASA.

The Dragon can carry seven astronauts to and from destinations like the International Space Station (not yet a manned mission to Mars I’d guess 😄). Here’s an illustration of the Dragon Version 1 (the new version has some differences), to get the idea:
