I know we're all are on tony defend squad but wdy think about Steve? I know in the mcu he's a shit but in other universes? And about Chris Evans? You don't have to answer ofc but I just wanted ur insight on this, I like the stuff u post :)
WHAT DO I THINK ABOUT STEVE LMAO AIN’T THAT THE QUESTION ANON.
From a lot of what I post, you would probably think I dislike Steve. Honestly, right now I’m going through EXTREME STARKQUILL/GUARDIANS FUCKING OFF INTO SPACE WITH TONY/ BITTER TONY moods, and so…
There’s a lot of shade being thrown in Steve’s direction.
But listen. Okay. I LOVE STEVE. I DO. I mean MCU Steve is, in my opinion, a very wobbly character, who could have been done so much more in-depth and meaningfully than what we got.
Like, for starters, his relationship with Tony is just. What. Where are the sly sex jokes and secret passwords @? All we got was Steve being a bit of a prick to him as soon as he laid eyes on the guy, and then a continuation of that, manifesting itself through judgment and lack of trust. which is completely OOC for the Steve we know and love.
Secondly, the whole Civil War argument was just turned into Saving Bucky Barnes, The Saga- which is totally not what happened in the comics at all, and made everything he did and said so shallow, because we knew he was just fighting for his bestie.
But yeah I mean aside from occasional moments (CATWS I thought did a pretty good job overall with him), I… I gotta say MCU Steve Is Not For Me.
But?? I HONESTLY LOVE HIM.
BURIED SOMEWHERE. UNDERNEATH THE BITTERNESS AND ANGER THAT RESIDES FROM CIVIL WAR, HE IS SUCH A GOOD BOY. i think it’s just… it’s very difficult to really place a specific set of characteristics for him, purely because of that fact that every writer does him differently. Some (hey Nick) write him like utter shit and make me want to burn out my retinas- some write him in what I consider to be perfectly in character (hey AA writers).
I mean AA Steve is my dad. End of. He’s number one. You don’t get better than AA Steve.
(Plus he and Tony are just. married. so that sweetens the deal a lot)
But like I said, it’s all about personal preference. Some are gonna be reading this like ???? Steve was perfectly in character in CW wdym???? and some are gonna be relating a lot. But for me, the Steve I know and love is the guy who believes in his team- the guy who is sly and dry-witted and unconditionally selfless.
And who fuckin treats Tony like he deserves. But whatever.
so like i said- AA Steve is the winner for me, purely because he’s very consistent and pretty much ticks off everything I just listed a few seconds ago. Comic Steve- when not a nazi- is, as far as i gathered, a pretty cool dude? Although I don’t read comics with him, he seems to have his head screwed on straight. MCU Steve is Very Much Average And Inconsistent, plus he highkey mistreated Tony, which is a Large Offence for me, not to mention OOC.
BUT WHEN I SAY STEVE CAN CHOKE. OR THE AVENGERS. I DON’T MEAN IT. I’M ANGRY AND I HATE THEM BUT I LOV THEM. THEY DESERVED BETTER CHARACTERISATION THAN WHAT THEY GOT AND I WILL BE. ETERNALLY BITTER. I WANTED A TEAM FAMILY. I WANTED A GROUP THAT CARED FOR ONE ANOTHER. I WANTED A STEVE WHO WASN’T JUST LOWKEY AN ASSHOLE. I WANTED THE FUCKING FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN TONY AND STEVE TO BE AS MEANINGFUL AND DEEP AS IT HAD BEEN IN THE COMICS. I’M JUST SORRY ABOUT WHAT THEY DID TO YOU BABES. I’M SORRY. YOU WERE ROBBED
