I'm a DIE HARD Bucky fan but yes. Tony deserves SO MUCH BETTER. Especially because it's a perfect show of call out culture being toxic asfuuuuck. Like... Tony realized he was doing something horrible and aiding in genocide so he changed his ways and genuinely did his best to help. He changed. For the better. And people??? Still hate him?? Why???
MY DUDE I LOVE BUCKY SO MUCH and there are SO MANY REALLY INTERESTING SIMILARITIES BETWEEN BUCKY AND TONY but NO ONE WANTS TO TALK ABT IT because EVERYONE is ANGRY it’s the worst
yeah it’s. extra great because most of the stuff he gets hated for is stuff that someone else did behind his back? and he’s still been working to better himself and make a positive difference in the world for nearly a real-time decade? and yet???? people are still?????? forgetting everything that isn’t the pre-afhanistan parts of the first movie he was ever in holy shit a true nightmare
fandom deciding that characters are either a) perfect and good and flawless and eternally above criticism (and any questionable things they did Never Happened) or b) horrible and awful and 100% morally reprehensible and if you like them you endorse awful things (and only the questionable things they did and Actual Outright Lies About Them matter re: their character), and there’s no in-between, is just. such a terrible time for everyone
