pre war

anonymous asked:

Ok, while I haven't read too much of anything from the 1620 universe (Ultimate Universe) I did notice that Bucky Barnes is an old man in that world who returned from WW2 without becoming the Winter Soldier and Natasha is a kind of a traitor. Is there anything to that or am I grasping?

oh Ultimates, Ultimates, Ultimates…

you pretty much got it - in the Ultimate Universe, or Earth-1610, Bucky was Steve’s childhood best friend. Only he wasn’t a soldier the same way 616!Bucky or MCU!Bucky was. Bucky was a Army press photographer who’s main job was to photograph Captain America’s exploits, so he wasn’t involved in the event that led to Steve being frozen in the Arctic ocean. Bucky comes back home, eventually marries Steve’s pre-war fiance Gail and has a bunch of kids. So he’s an old man suffering from lung cancer by the time Steve is found and revived:

And then there’s Natasha, poor poor Natasha who did not deserve the shitty way her character was re-imagined by Mark Millar. Natasha was a former KGB assassin who was part of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Black Ops team before joining the Ultimates. She then got engaged to Tony Stark and was given her own Iron Man armor:

 Then it was discovered that she was a traitor and she murdered Edwin Jarvis and Clint’s wife and children, before being killed by Clint. So yeah…

For those who wish to build their own fallout shelter, there are many precautions that must be taken care of in order for the shelter to function. However most fallout shelters will simply be imploded and your family burned alive by Atomic fire. That is why a vault in one of vault tec’s trusty vaults is the only choice when it comes to protection. Make the choice, the right choice, with vault tec. (Photo not a fallout canon)
