Luke Cage’s reaction to seeing Steve Rogers alive again.

Steve: Thanks, Lucas.
Luke: Is that–?! Are you–?!
Bucky: It’s him.
Steve:I’m back. Whoa!
Luke: Sorry. But I mean, what the hell?
Steve: It’s a story.
Luke: No @#$%
Steve: What were you doing here? It’s not safe here. You’re supposed to be at the safehouse with Jessica.

Steve is so awkward about how happy everyone is to see him alive again, it’s kind of adorable.

Also, Luke went back to Steve’s destroyed apartment for baby Dani’s favorite pacifier. ♥

That time Faiza’s parents were attacked and her father kidnapped by Dracula.

Faiza: We have to find him! I feel like I was…playing at soldiers…when–
Brian: This is the job. This is what we take on as “super heroes”. It’s not your fault. It’s Dracula’s fault. They were protected as well as anyone could have been. Someone must have had…well…access.

I feel like Brian just probably gives really good hugs.

Tony: Hey, don’t tell Thor because he looks like he’s going to fall over, but that’s as much fun as I’ve had since I actually went to Dungeons and Dragons summer camp.
Steve: You were amazing up there.
Tony: I’m sorry about that elf lady.
Steve: I’m sorry about the things I said before this happened. It’s–it’s just so hard to put away all the things that happened between us.
Tony: All those things… All the things I said and did–I’m–I’m so, so sorry. I know that’s not enough, but I hope you will allow me the chance to earn your friendship back. I don’t deserve it… I just hope you let me. I’m not half as good at–at anything as I am when I’m doing it next to you. And that’s the truth.

If superheroes aren’t your thing, there’s no use in watching Avengers. Maybe one day you suddenly feel like it and you can stay in for a whole weekend of superpowered people punching each other. XD

Also thanks. I don’t talk much about personal things here, but maybe I should from time to time and see if that helps.
