the hulk on the rampage

Bullet Points

Hey, Tumblr! I wanted to tell you about Bullet Points, my new favorite canonical Marvel AU, so that maybe I can convince you to love it too! So I have prepared a summary and picspam! I had not even heard of Bullet Points until I found someone on the internet saying there should be Steve/Tony fanfic set in Bullet Points. And then I read Bullet Points, and oh my God, does there ever need to be Steve/Tony fanfic set in Bullet Points.

(Don’t worry, I have written some, because I try to be the change I want to see. But there needs to be more!)

Bullet Points is a five-issue limited series from 2007 by J. Michael Straczynski and Tommy Lee Edwards. It’s definitely of interest to Steve/Tony fans, or at least to Steve/Tony fans who are willing to do a bit of work with the timeline to get them together. But I am pretty sure Steve/Tony fandom will like the premise.

You see, Bullet Points is a universe where skinny Steve Rogers is Iron Man in World War II. And he survives World War II. I knew you were interested.

How Can That Be (7/?) [Ft. Reader x Hulk]

Summary: Bruce finds himself drawn to the new avenger by an unknown force. What happens when this force causes Bruce to become the Hulk?

(Side Note: I’m aware that the GIF is of Edward Norton as the Hulk and not Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk BUT I liked the GIF for this part of the story)

Recon mission, a simple in and out. However during the mission you became separated from your team. One minute you were walking beside Bruce and then next the floor you were walking on broke off and shifted upwards. You screamed as you were catapulted into the air away from your friends.

Bruce watched helplessly as you ascended into the air. It happened so fast, in a blink of an eye you were gone. Bruce and the Hulk went into a frenzy and the Avengers didn’t know what to do as they watched Bruce transform. The Hulk’s eyes dashed around and upwards as he searched for you, when he didn’t see you he roared. It was a painful roar that shook everyone to their core, it was almost like he was howling in agony.

alkja replied to your post “Dead Sea has nothing on me”

I mean, in CW I was on Wanda’s side bc she may have fucked up with that bomb, but at least she minimized casualties by getting it away from a crowded courtyard. So, yeah, not perfect but such is life. The problem, as you point out, is that while she should not be judged for her CW actions she absolutely should be for the AoU ones: she deliberately unleashed the Hulk to rampage through an innocent town (and may Bruce never forget or forgive)

she was Ultron’s ally for a good while and totally ok with his plan of destruction until she caught on that it would be on a global scale at which point you do not get brownie points for pulling back - say, you’re ok with a little bit of murder and mayhem but not total world annihilation? God, what a hero!

The only reason Wanda’s arc in CW didn’t bother me more is that the side baying for accountability was spearheaded by Our Lord Of No Consequences Tony Stark.

I don’t even see what happened in CW as a fuck-up, or if it was it wasn’t hers. She behaved exactly right: she threw herself at the danger to the best of her ability. It wasn’t enough to avert the disaster completely, but her call was sound. Now I can and will question why the Avengers were even there in the first place, so if there was a fuck-up it’s on Steve (because if people died because she wasn’t prepared enough, that’s on him, for letting her come, not her).

Problem I’m having with her arc is that it’s not easy to buy her remorse and defiance in the face of intolerance for mutations abilities and inspirational quotes, when she took ¾ of a movie writing a long essay with her actions about why she should be feared and mistrusted and we hear not a peep about that. Which, hey, makes sense given her age (which is what, 20ish?), but you’d think someone would institute psychological evaluation for people who could level cities if they felt like it.

And you know what really gets me? Wanda in AoU was Zemo in CACW. Except he was better prepared, caused far less damage by design, limited civilian casualties (the UN was, after all, a very precise hit, and arguably can be blamed for only now taking action for Avenger shenanigans), targeted the actual cause of his grief instead of a figurehead of it and anyone standing in the vicinity, and in brief got it done. Why isn’t he an Avenger yet?

Prompt: You are Loki’s wife, of Asgard. And with Thor’s help have finally found your husband. It is only you who discovers Loki’s true intentions when he is on the S.H.I.E.L.D  Helicarrier, how he is trying to get the Hulk to go on a rampage to distract the Avengers. Everyone underestimates you because you’re quite small and fragile looking. But it turns out you’re really clever. 

Warnings: None

Pairing: Loki x Reader, Avengers x Reader

I'm actually really glad to have a Loki request, at long last :) Hope I get it right and that you enjoy! 

I'm looking for my Husband

Finally you have found the whereabouts of your Husband. It has been a long search indeed. Even though it took you so long, you never for a minute wanted to give up. Finding him became your top priority. You were not ready to give up on him. Hopefully you could talk him out of all this madness. He even managed to fool you, setting up his own brother, just so he could be king. To you it appeared his intentions were true. Until the truth was later revealed. But, at the end of the day, he is still your husband. And you take your vows pretty seriously.

I watched Age of Ultron the other night again and I have a few thoughts.

1) Bruce was the one who said ‘The only threat to people would be people’. So it’s at least 55% his fault.

2) Ultron was already creepy from the second he started existing, even before he researched everything. The way he talks to Jarvis just gives me the creeps.

3) Ultron already said the Avengers are disconnected and not a team.

4) Obviously Nat wasn’t only trained as an assassin as stated in the movie because you do not need to sterilize assassins. That heavily implies she also was a spy and slept with her targets if neccessary. 

5) Helen Cho told Steve to get the cradle to Tony. They know her, she is obviously a regular at the tower, she knows her way around the labs. But of course she is a lot less trustworthy than Wanda who tells Steve that Tony will fuck it up.

6) More than ¾ in the cradle is already Ultron from the data upload and yet the little bit Jarvis adds makes Vision to what he is in the end. Tell me again how Tony only creates ‘murderbots’.

7) Bruce is yet again on board with building a second AI.

8) Thor says ‘Stark is right’ and Bruce scoffs and acts out with sarcasm as if he wasn’t the one helping a second before.

9) It’s mostly Tony who is shown how he helps random citizens and who actually talks to them. First in the elevator when the Hulk went on a rampage and then in Sokovia (not to mention in the Iron Man movies). No one ever mentions that.

10) Why the fuck does Ultron care if Wanda dies or not?

11) We desperately need a new colour scheme. The black/red (Scott, Sam, Wanda, and generally with red in Tony’s and Thor’s case) is getting old real soon.

Seven Minutes in Heaven: Bruce part one

Complete series 

“You got…” Tony said, pausing to laugh to himself before continuing. “Our very own jolly green giant.”

“I’m hardly jolly.” Bruce mumbled, standing up sheepishly and allowing himself to be pushed towards the closet. You amble after him, sighing as Tony locks you and Bruce in.

“You doing ok?” You ask, not entirely sure where to go with this. Bruce wasn’t exactly the kind to ravish someone in a closet. He’s the kind of guy to take you out for dinner and walk you to your front door after. Be a gentleman. Then after all that you’d play pass the pickle.

and I just really adore headcanons where Tony’s set up a social media account for Bruce because
  • after Tony got his permission to post what photos and videos he captures of Bruce (or more persistent asking until Bruce gave in because it’s Tony and it’s hard to say no when he’s screaming ‘BUT’) at first Bruce would be all “bruh please don’t post that I’m blinking–and turning into a giant green rage monster but also blinking.” 
  • and it becomes a big thing whenever Bruce does something like “adorably Bruce” according to Tony it’s captured and put online
  • which is weird for Bruce, Bruce is a private guy, Bruce had to run away from the goddamn military for all his life as hulk 
  • but Tony assures him with “they’d have to get through us to get you you’re safe with us buddy I’d use the ‘we have a hulk’ line but that seems contradictory and doesn’t to be that applicable here–”
  • which is comforting for Bruce 
  • which is also weird for Bruce
  • sometimes the videos with Hulk kind of make him worried like “isn’t some kid just gonna be looking through their vine and suddenly be roared and probably eaten by h–the other guy?”
  • to which Tony responds “tags, tw, duh,” which are words Bruce doesn’t know but again it’s Tony he’ll let him run the electronic media world 
  • and after awhile Bruce begins to wonder whose letting Tony do this because usually it goes “Pep, Pepper, Pepper you don’t understand I won’t put another photo of Steve’s face plastered to an eagle–I didn’t edit that Loki literally–” and is shut down but Bruce’s account stays online 
  • he doesn’t get it until one day a little girl dressed up in Hulk attire carrying around a Hulk plushie runs up to him after battle while Bruce is battered and bruised and looking not at all as happy as that Hulk plushie asking “Mr. Dr. Bruce Hulk sir, can I get your autograph. I loved you in (put embarrassing mid-hulk transformation in small space video here).” 
  • Bruce understands then because Tony doesn’t just do things for no reason–they can start off that way or appear to be so but unless there’s a cause he loses attention quickly 
  • He set up this account so people saw Bruce 
  • so when Hulk came rampaging down the streets to protect the city they knew that wasn’t just a green thing he was a person 
  • whether Hulk or Bruce they both slipped on carefully placed banana peels around the tower 
  • Me trying to explain the AOU movie to my mom.
  • Me: It’s about an A.I who wants to kill everyone on earth.
  • My mom: So it’s like the movie Avatar.
  • Me: No, it’s a Marvel movie where Tony Stark-
  • My mom: Who’s Tony Stark?
  • Me: Iron Man.
  • My mom: Is that the guy who was in the ice for 100 years?
  • Me: No, that's Captain America. And it was for 70 years.
  • My mom: The one on your shirt.
  • Me: *looks at my Ultron vs Hulk shirt* No, this is the Hulk
  • My mom: Who's he?
  • Me: He turns into a giant green rampaging guy who smashes stuff.
  • My mom: Is he trying to kill everyone?
  • Me: No, that's Ultron.
  • My mom: Oh the metal guy.
  • Me: What? No that's Iron Man.
  • My mom: Who is he?
  • Me: Tony Stark is Iron Man.
  • My mom: What was it that you saw again?
  • Me: The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
  • My mom: Who are the Avengers?
  • Me: Captain America, The Hulk, Iron Man, Hawkeye-
  • My mom: There is some guy in M.A.S.H named Hawkeye.
  • Me: *gets up to leave* Never mind mom.

mcu ladies week day 6: headcanons/au/meta

wanda maximoff’s character arc in avengers: age of ultron IS LOVE and here’s why:

Ohh, I can just hear those unfollow buttons clicking away :D Before you do though, just give me a few minutes to explain what I mean ‘k? ‘K.

The one thing that’s been bugging me the most (ok, one of the things - I have a lot of unpopular opinions about this movie) since AOU came out is how much credit Tony is given with creating Ultron and how few are given to Bruce and Wanda. Like in-movie-verse it makes sense for Tony to take all the blame on himself because that’s just what he does, but out of it? Not only does it belittle Bruce Banner and turns him into, basically, a child that apparently can’t make decisions for himself, but it takes a huge important chunk of character development for Wanda in this movie.

Because Tony Stark’s imperfections are not actually the driving force of the plot in Age of Ultron. Tony Stark in this movie is used as a tool. Wanda’s the real force and her decisons are the ones that drive the plot throughout.


Because women rarely get the redemtion arcs Wanda got. Women rarely get to be as destructive and angry and vengeful and turn out heroes in the end. Women usually have two options with being vengeful: either their vengence and anger is directed towards someone innocent and pure - and in that case they are THE EVIL QUEEN and story will end with their defeat, or their vengence is only directed at someone bad and malicious, someone irredeemable and no innocent is hurt by them in the end.

Wanda isn’t like that. You see that smile up there? That is not the smile someone has on their face when they let the man they hold responsible for the death of their parents walk away. Wanda only lets Tony go because she has planted seeds of destruction in his mind and she can’t wait to see them come to fruition.

And she continues like that for the first half of the movie.

She doesn’t care who gets hurt in the process of her getting what she wants or how much destruction it will cause. She unleashes the Hulk and sets it upon a foreign city full of innocent people. She mind-rapes people (which is why that post going around saying BRUCE BANNER WOULD NEVER, you know the one, makes me want to puke). She gets herself entangled with Ultron and has little care for whom they’re going to hurt in the process of destroying Avengers as long as they are destroyed. She’s the reason lots and lots of innocent people get hurt (or even die).

And while the movie doesn’t shy away from admitting that Wanda’s done horrible things trying to get her revenge (she even says herself “it’s our fault” while breaking down during the Battle in Sokovia, she started the snowball rolling and it turned into an avalanche) but it also shows that she is not consumed by it to the point that she doesn’t care about anything else: it’s clear that she loves her country and is ready to go to great means to protect it (the movie doesn’t compare the twins to Captain America - the paragon of patriotism - for nothing, you know), that she dearly loves her brother, that she really, truly cares about the world and in the end is ready to sacrifice her life for it (it’s clear at the core when she tells Pietro to go that she doesn’t truly believe she will survive this battle).

And that’s why Wanda’s arc in AOU is so wonderful. Because this may be a team-up movie where she isn’t even allowed that much screentime - but she still comes of as deliciously complex: She lost her way because of her pain - but she was never truly evil or unsalvagable, she hurt innocent people - but then she turned around and was ready to sacrifice her life for the world, she lost the person most important to her - but got herself together and joined the Avengers to continue doing good deeds.

But people usually don’t even aknowledge Wanda as a villain or the role she played for the plot development most of the time. Hell, they don’t even aknowledge Bruce as co-creator of Ultron. Main credit always goes to Tony. And that sucks.

Because Wanda as the one who is vicious, scary, filled with hatred and rage, who hurts innocent people and still gets to become an Avenger in the end is much, much more brilliant.

(Also, interesting moment that needs to be pointed out: Hawkeye and Dr. Selvig are never blamed for things they did while under Loki’s control, Bucky is almost never blamed for things he did as the Winter Soldier - and when he is, thousands upon thousand of people viciously defend him, Hulk isn’t blamed for going on rampage and niether is Helen Cho for helping Ultron after Wanda mindfucked them. But Tony is somehow solely responsible. Interesting double standards, no?)

anonymous asked:

Tony really hasn't taken responsibility for his actions. He sure has never apologized to Banner for exiling him even though the other members of the Illuminati did.

“Tony really hasn’t taken responsibility for his actions” okay, I’ll give you his monologue from World War Hulk #1. It happens as Tony is fighting the Hulk after he came back to Earth with a rage.

This is Tony Stark. Iron Man, Director of SHIELD. And yes, I fired the Hulk into space. So if you need to blame someone for his return… blame me. But everything I’ve done… everything I’ll do today… everything I’ll ever do… I do to protect this world. Someone once told me that with great power comes great responsibility. That’s usually thought of as a lesson for children, a simple injunction to do the right thing. But there’s nothing simple about it. When I put on this armor, I took on more power than any human was intended to have… and maybe more responsibility than my heart can truly bear. But today… I will do my job. I will protect you… no matter what it takes. And today it’s going to take more than it ever has. Because I’ve just injected the Hulk with nanobots. They’re designed to suppress his powers. But there’s no guarantee they’ll keep him down for long. So by the authority vested in me by the United States Government and by SHIELD… and because I know my friend Bruce Banner would want it this way… I take responsibility.

This speech/whole scene is actually repeated in Iron Man: Director of SHIELD #19, with added unspoken inner monologue by Tony:

Because I don’t have the patience to crop two and a half pages, here’s the whole thing:

Forgive me, Bruce. I never will.

Well, Tony. You knew this might happen. Knew it from the moment you proposed sending the Hulk into space. It seemed like the perfect solution. A planet with vegetation and game, but no sentient beings for the Hulk to harm. Where he’d be left alone, like he always said he wanted. If it was so perfect, why not tell Bruce? Offer him the option instead of tricking him? [Because post-2005 comics have a burning obsession with shoving Tony through moral tough spots ~with no other apparent way out~ other than doing the Gray Thing for truncated reasons and circumstances that would apply to no other superhero, because other superheroes arcs involve last-minute Morally Sound Alternatives that post-CW writers don’t bother with in Tony’s case] Because he might say no. And once he was forewarned, no power on Earth could force him. It was one of the toughest decisions I’ve made in my life. But, as with the Registration Act, it was a necessary one. 

Some people avoid hard choices. As a CEO, as an Avenger, as Director of SHIELD… as a recovering alcoholic… [And Marvel’s post-CW plot-propellant scapegoat] I make them on a daily basis. Some days, it’s as simple as not having a drink. On others, millions of lives hang in the balance. I do what I think best. What I think is right. I make no apologies for that. But I do make a promise: that I’ll face the consequences. I make the decision… and I pay the price.

Bonus dialogue from New Avengers: Illuminati #1, which elaborates on why Tony proposed to send the Hulk to space. [MH] stands for Maria Hill, [TS] for Tony Stark. The dialogue refers to the recent Hulk rampage in Las Vegas.

[TS]: How many this time, Commander Hill?

[MH]: 26. Two kids. And a dog.

[TS]: He can’t control it.

[MH]: Who do you think had more control over what happened? The 26 people and the dog, or him? The thing I want to know is… why do you let this continue?

[TS]: Me? Let?

[MH]: One of my agents was going over a report and he said to me – you know all those people Norman Osborn killed as the Green Goblin? When does it start to become Spider-Man’s fault? And I said, why would it be Spider-Man’s fault? He said, Spider-Man’s the one who has Osborn by the throat three times a year, but he never does what he has to do. He webs him up, they throw him in jail, then Osborn breaks out and goes on another homicidal rampage… How many times does that have to happen before the whole damn thing becomes Spider-Man’s fault? I said, it’s not Spider-Man’s fault Norman Osborn is nuts. He said, that’s true, but – it is his fault the guy’s still alive.

[TS]: Commander…

[MH]: I’m doing everything I can to stop the Hulk. My question is, are you?

All of this can be veeery deeply analyzed through the lens of Tony’s fucked up regard for personal agency, the relationship between his self-importance/self-blaming/self-loathing, etc etc etc, but when it comes exclusively to “taking responsibility” – lol aw hon 

Age Of Ultron Romanogers Review

Ok Romanogers team! Grab a snack and something to drink, if you are over 21 you can grab a beer or some wine!. It is time to dissect AOU from a Romanogers POV 

WARNING: This post contains Spoilers, so you might want to skip it if you have not seen the movie. Also this post is PG13 for language :) But Enjoy!

 At the end of Age of Ultron Natasha and Steve were able to accept their past, and have come into terms with who they really are. They have been shaped by their past experiences, but they are no longer controlled by those ghosts. So lets begin with Captain America’s vision (Steve). Caps vision had to do with Peggy and the dance he never got to attend. In his vision Peggy tells Cap that the “war has ended, and he needed to go back home”. There is a scene during the party where Falcon asks, captain if he has found a house in Brooklyn, in which caps replies that he hasn’t, but still it would be to expensive to move back there. Brooklyn represents his past, that’s were he used to live before he went into that ice 75 years ago. During a scene in Clint’s farm, where Cap is standing at the front door, we hear Peggy;s voice saying “home” The ghost of Peggy still haunts him at that point of the movie. But he walks away. 

 OK so lets forward to a particular scene at the end of the film. We see Tony talking to Steve, Tony is saying his good byes. Tony tells Steve, that he will probably be building a farm house just like Clint. Steve then says, “aw the simple life”. Tony says, “You can have that”. The camera pans over to Steve, you can tell his reminiscing about the past, then he replies, “family, stability, simple life”. At this point I started saying, Oh shit Steve wanted a family too!! Just like Natasha!! We all saw how she acted around Clint’s children, you can tell that Nat wants to have that or at least something close to that. But lets continue..  Steve then says, “I wanted that too”. At that moment I started screaming with excitement!!!  he continues to say that when he went into the ice 75 yrs ago another person came out. Right then and there I realize that our Cap has moved on. He accepted that his past cannot be change. And that there is only ONE PATH. To move forward.

 Now lets dissect Natasha’s character. On the previous Avengers movie we see a strong, fearless and emotionless Nat. Hence the quote “Love is for children”. I know a lot of you guys will disagree with me, but her character has been developing. She has not been reduced to a desperate teenage girl, trying to find love like some say. Just like in real life, we all change. What was important ten years ago, might not be important now. And, what was NOT important then, might be now. Natasha’s character is transitioning, at this moment she craves to have some type of stability. She thinks she can have that with Banner. She knows Banner is a good person, she is aware that he also has demons, but she THINKS that she is able to change that. The BAR scene AHH we all love that scene right? Wrong!! lol We see Nat flirting with Bruce, she tells him that all of her friends are fighters, but there is this guy that doesn't like to fight. We all know that Banner prefers to run the other way around, he prefers to hide than face his demons. Now do you all remember what Nat did at the end of CATWS? Yep exactly she ran from her problems. In my opinion Nat sees Bruce as an equal, she can sympathize with him. She believes they are the same. “They are both monsters”.  

 Nat at this point has come into terms with everything she has lost in the past. Hence, the conversation in the farm house. She tells Bruce that she was left infertile. She knows she cannot change that. But still she wants something close to being normal. She might not be able to have a family. But still wants a chance in life. And she will do anything at this point to at least have that. She is willing to run away with Bruce, even though she is tired of running. In one of the final scenes during the battle we see Cap and Nat standing in a pile of wreckage or debris from the battle over looking the Horizon. I thought to myself, wow that is symbolic. Both of them had risen from the dark, and were able to conquer their monsters. The wreckage or pile symbolizes that, and they are both standing on top of it. But is a particular dialogue that gets my attention, the dialogue is short but meaningful. At this point in the film they are trying to get the people off of the rising city, but they don't have a plan. And if they don’t act soon, they can ALL die.  Cap tells Nat that they cannot go and leave the people stranded there. The Avengers have a choice to go, but their main priority is the PEOPLE not the Avengers. Nat tells Steve that she is not planning on Leaving. (Nope she will not run away again) I have a huge smile at this point. Nat then tells him Cap, “There are worst ways to go down”.(meaning to die) She says this while looking at Steve. Ok so who wouldn't want to die standing next to freaking Captain America?! I volunteer as tribute. ha Ok lets carry on. Steve turns around and looks at her, you can tell that he is proud of her decision. 

 So lets get back to Mr. Hulk, so he left on a jet plane, and don’t know if he’ll be back again. Good! I hope he never shows up. Just kidding. hahaha we all need a little bit of humor right? As we all know, Hulk never had a vision, he went into a rampage and began to destroy everything in his path. His demons are still in control. He has not been able to come into terms and accept who he really is. He fears that part of himself. Nat was able to control him a bit, but she was not able to fully changed him. At the end of Age of Ultron he decides to run away. And this is why I think Bruce doesn't deserve Natasha; After Nat pours her heart out to him he decides to leave her behind. Why did he leave? you may ask. He is selfish, at this point he is only thinking about him self and he is not willing to change that for Nat. He will never be able to give her what she deserves. Perhaps…maybe…because what he feels is not strong enough. 

 A funny thing is that when Nat was trying to get him to return, she tells him, “The fight is over, is time to come home”. It brought me back to the vision Steve had with Peggy, where she says, “The war is over, is time to come home”. But, due to the circumstances, neither Steve or Bruce returned “home”. But why? Because that is not the path they were or are meant to take. Bruce is not Nat’s home, And Peggy was never Steve’s home. Now lets rewind back to the infamous bar scene. I understand everyone is saying that Steve didn't give a shit, and basically told Bruce to go for it. Well I think otherwise. First of all, why would Steve walk towards Bruce in the first place? Steve tells Bruce, that whatever is going on with Nat is “NICE” LOL I LMAO when I heard that word come out of Steve’s mouth. Clever choice of words of the writers. I give them kudos. Then Bruce tells Steve, in other words that Nat was just flirting. Steve proceeds to tell Bruce that he has witness Nat flirting, and up close. (LOL I cannot believe Steve said that) then he grabs another beer! (I'm sure he will need that beer, he is getting ready to tell another man to go for the girl of his dreams) And that basically, what ever is going on with Bruce is more than just a “flirt”. Steve tells him that Nat seems relaxed with him. Come on! Steve Rogers out of all people, was able to notice that there is something going on between those two.

 Steve, the person that after 75 years of being buried in ice, has not been able to hook up with a girl. Yet he is able to notice their interactions and is giving a lousy love advice to his competition. Come on Rogers admit it, you have been spying on both of them, and have been noticing their interactions ever since. Why?? hmmm There is a particular cute scene at the farm with Clint and Laura, she asks Clint how long has the Nat/Bruce thing been going on? Clint sounds surprise at Laura’s question and says, “What thing”? Bruce and Nat? he starts laughing? haha thank you Hawkeye, we all did the same thing when we heard the news. At least we have him on our side ;) Anyway, he was obviously unaware. Clint?! You are Nats best friend, the person that saved your life. And you did not noticed the Nat/Banner thing? That ladies and gentleman prove my point that Steve had been eyeing Nat for a while. Steve believes he is not worthy. He thinks he will not be able to make her happy, like she deserves. He sees that Nat is “happy” when she is with Bruce. When you truly care for some one unconditionally you put their happiness first over all things. Steve was just being selfless, thats why told Bruce to basically “go for it” although his facial expression were saying something else. He put his head down when he said that, and he walked away. Bruce on the other hand chose himself, when he left. That’s why I believe that Bruce will never deserve Nat.

 The ending!!! Ok we are getting close. Are you all still tagging along? I sure hope so! I hope I'm not boring the shit out of you guys. So after the Steve and Tony convo the camera cuts to Nat who is standing facing a wall, the camera then zooms out and we see Steve standing right behind Nat. “Are you going to keep starring at the wall”? or “do you want to go back to work”? Steve asks. To me the wall symbolizes Bruce, or what IT could have been. Nat is still reminiscing at that. “Its an interesting wall” Cap says. Yes, it was tempting, but a wall is just a wall, there is nothing there. And Bruce is no longer there. That was not the path Natasha is supposed to take. Then Nat turns around, now she is facing Steve. She starts walking towards him. Yes thats my girl Nat!! she is finally choosing the right path. The ONE PATH she is meant to be on. And that is right by Steve’s side. 

 The End.

Side note:

 This is not the end of Romanogers guys. Have faith! There was a lot of references in this movie about children and family, and how the avengers were craving to have that at some point in their life. Specially Nat and Steve. So I have hopes that Steve and Nat will have a child. I though it was really cute that Clint named the baby Nathaniel Pietro Barton, after the two people that saved his life. The Fiji / postcard reference by Fury was hilarious. When people send postcards while vacationing is to let fam/friends know that they are having fun and they are ok. And to share their vacation experiences. Thanks Fury for letting Nat know that Bruce is doing fine without her. I though that line was genius.

I love Wanda and I totally get that her anger towards Tony is every bit justified

But it seems fandom has entirely forgotten that she MANIPULATED Tony into creating Ultron, sure she didn’t control his every action but she knew what fears to push to get him to act - she preyed on his PTSD, his biggest fear of alien invasion and him failing everyone - she gaslighted him

Seriously that nightmare scenario with everyone dead, with Tony literally leaning over a dying Steve who’s last words were basically why didn’t Tony do more…could you get more clear that Tony was manipulated?

Yet while everyone seems to still hold a grudge against Tony, including Tony himself, nobody holds a grudge against Wanda for her part

Or did we also forget that she set off the Hulk in rampage to a populated area where innocent people got hurt

And frankly if Tony and Bruce hadn’t had the Hulkbuster as a contingency plan, god knows how many people would have died??

Wanda was hurt yes, she didn’t deserve to have suffered as she had, but it doesn’t negate her responsible in creating Ultron and risking the lives of hundreds and thousands of innocents because of her anger and pain

And if Wanda can be forgiven for her mistake, then why should Tony be constantly held against for his mistake.

White America and The Opinions Of Black Celebrities: Part 2,651

I was sitting in a restaurant when I heard it. A restaurant much like any other restaurant that is acutely aware of its pretentiousness. Just imagine a place where all the patrons drink Fernet Branca, quote Jaden Smith unironically, and wear sunglasses regardless of the time of day or them being inside an actual, y'know, establishment with it’s own lighting. Busy as I was by being so deeply committed to this douche-esque thoughtful critique of my environment while simultaneously glided over the implications of my character by willingly being there when it happened.

“I mean *jowl assisted chuckle* how can he say that with his millions and millions of dollars. I don’t see him going to the inner city to help any of these people he’s talking about. Just shut up and stick to football, you know.”

It doesn’t take a morphine-addicted Sherlock Holmes to deduce that he was talking about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Who famously remained seated during last Friday’s Star-Spangled Banner number before a preseason game. He clarified his actions by saying “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. … There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” A sentiment that I wholly endorse, which in turn makes my resentment of Blake McDoucheface IV (I’m sure it’s not far from his real name.)

Much like the luggage of anyone who’s prepared a bug-out bag in case Trump is elected, there’s a lot to unpack here. I’m doing this by way of writing while stewing and replaying that statement over and over in my head. As potentially ignorant as it may sound, I didn’t have to turn around to confirm the skin complexion of the person who made a comment so stupid they must’ve brought it second hand from the trunk of Johnny Depp’s assistant. Nor did I have to have any particular insight into who they are to know that they’re probably the type to insist, laboriously, that GamerGate was about “ethics in video game journalism” or some other vinegar-based horseshit instead of a poorly-acted charade to assault people who have the gall to possess an actual vagina. So, I’m writing this in the interest of expediency and my own personal decompression.(Very counter productive for me if some random brochella jerk were to catch these hands like the Zika Virus.) So lets’s pick this stale ass turkey apart piece by piece:

  • If the basic movement of your mouth and jaw is wholly dependent on the rolls of fat you have stored there like newspapers on A&E’s Hoarders, then maybe you shouldn’t be so critical of someone exercising their, peaceful yet deafening, freedom of expression. After all, you’ve expressed your, peaceful yet deafening, freedom to abstain from having a neck that doesn’t look like a belly in it’s third-trimester of pregnancy with ballpark franks.
  • Where on the conventional metric of financial success does someone lose the right to speak about injustice? Is it somewhere between “I Shop At Whole Foods” and “Yes, I Do Own A Bidet. Why Do You Ask?”. I really want to know, because the subtext in someone contending that his millions somehow makes him immune/oblivious to structural racism is dumber than the entire concept of ass to mouth. One could argue that, because of his status and the large platform by which he has to speak, he has a moral obligation to call out breaches of integrity concerning law enforcement. Especially in regards to people who live in communities so unfairly targeted that the frickin’ Department of Justice basically had to step in and stop cops from treating Baltimore citizens like dark-skinned black men treat women in Tyler Perry movies. No one would be talking about Colin Kaepernick, the Ikea Sales Associate. No one would give a roasted fuck if Colin Kaepernick, Google Fiber Representative, said this in between annoyingly enthusiastic sales pitches for faster-than-ever Internet. Say what you will about the societal implications, but his fame and fortune grant him a bigger voice than the rest of us.
  • We all know that when someone uses the term “inner city” and “these people,” what they’re actually referring to is niggers and nigger babies. Just once, I would love to hear a white person refer to a group of black and brown children as “nigger babies.” I wouldn’t even be upset. I’d just breathe a prolonged sigh of relief that someone finally decided to be honest instead of burying their dog whistle racism under dulcet tones of condescension and white guilt. Also, I think people forget how real change is affected. Just throwing money at a situation does nothing to remedy the actual problem of economic disenfranchisement, institutional and systemic racism prevalent in both state and federal levels of government, and the fact that most people of color simply inhabit a different space than their white counterparts. This is why you don’t just keep throwing ACE bandages at the women in battered womens shelters after giving them all 30-second pep talks. It’s why you don’t expect the drug flow within challenged communities to stop once you’ve arrested the dude that does all of his deals in the bathroom of the Arby’s on Peachtree. You identify and strategize against the root of the problem. That problem being how some Americans can confuse patriotism with jingoism and simultaneously ignoring the struggles of their fellow countrymen with such ease you’d think all of black America was Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense.
  • “Just stick to football.” This is the most egregious of all, at least to me. If this were the only sentiment the gentleman had expressed that I overheard, it would have been enough for me to transform into some kind of Black Rage Hulk. Rampaging throughout the streets of Atlanta while reciting excerpts from every Ta-Nehisi Coates article I’ve ever read. This implies that a black celebrity’s only value is that by which they’ve achieved fame. That they are stripped of all thought, intellectual or otherwise, agency, and capacity to grasp issues larger than themselves. Essentially, that we are all nothing but vessels from which you derive your entertainment. This is evident every time a Black celebrity expresses an opinion formulated through observation and simple deductive reasoning. We are more than just repositories for catchy pop culture phrases and ephemeral dance crazes. The fact that we keep asserting asserting as much is guaranteed to ruffle the feathers of White America more than Michelle Obama speaking common facts by saying that slaves built the White House.

I suppose that maybe these four cups of coffee, glass of Buffalo Trace Bourbon neat, and the most delightful cucumber tea sandwich I’ve ever had has made me more than a touch sensitive. Maybe I’m just reacting to this poor fellow’s statement from a place of indignation that’s only heated by the small proximity I have from when I initially heard the news. That is also a possibility. But, chances are, I’m not overly sensitive nor too caught within the moment to see a situation for what it clearly is: A large number of people saying that the flag is the quintessential representation of what it means to be free. And to exercise that freedom by protesting what amounts to a racist 19th-century pop ballad (think Ted Nugent and Toby Keith getting drunk on moonshine after watching Civil War reenactments somewhere in southern Arizona. Then writing a song on the back of a of Trump/Pence shirt they bought at a yard sale. That song would be the Star-Spangled Banner.) It’s enough of a logical quagmire to make your teeth itch, and you’re eyes bleed, but enough people seem to think it makes perfect sense. Clearly, I have a lot to learn from “these people.”


>Extended battle on the HYDRA fortress in Sokovia.

>Extended discussion about the Ultron Program between Stark and Banner.

>After transferring his consciousness to the HYDRA fortress in Sokovia, Ultron builds a new robotic body for himself.

>Rhodes alerts the Avengers that all countries with nuclear weapons are dealing with cyber-attacks masterminded by Ultron, and that he’s being deployed to the Middle East to monitor the situation and prevent tensions from escalating. Stark creates a new encryption pattern for the War Machine armor so Ultron can’t hijack it.

>The Twins return to Sokovia and begin stealing supplies to give to the impoverished masses. While distributing medicine to the poor, they’re approached by a young boy who says “the Iron Man” is waiting for them at the church. Arriving there, they find Ultron waiting for them.

>When the Avengers confront Ultron and the Twins at Ulysses Klaue’s shipyard, Ultron complains that the world is not good enough it doesn’t need the Avengers, but not bad enough they actually try to change it, and only if “something breaks” on a grand scale will the human race outgrow their selfishness and change things for the better.

>More on the rivalry between Hawkeye and Quicksilver, with Quicksilver mentioning Hawkeye is so irrelevant that Ultron and them didn’t even factor him in their strategies to defeat the Avengers. Quicksilver also mocks Hawkeye as being too old and too slow in all their encounters.

>Extended version of Thor’s vision. After the temple collapses, Thor is approached by Loki, and they discuss Thor’s failure to defend the Nine Realms and the inevitability of the end while the dead Asgardians are being shepperd into Hel. Loki mocks Odin’s tone of speech during the conversation.

>Wanda brainwashing Banner into becoming the Hulk and rampaging in Johannesburg.

>Quicksilver hitting on any attractive woman he sees throughout the movie.

>At Hawkeye’s farm, Hawkeye’s wife complains about a tool shed Hawkeye never finishes because he’s always off with the Avengers. During the ending montage, he’d be seen finishing it.

>Alternative version of the bedroom scene in which Banner rejects Black Widow completely.

>Thor explains to Selvig that the mystice waters of the cave are a way to communicate with the Norns. He dives in and is possessed by them. Selvig then has to question them about Thor’s vision and decipher their cryptic answers based on his knowledge of Asgardian culture.

>Stark calls the Twins “Flowers in the Attic”, and they don’t understand the reference. Wanda says it sounds lovely, Hawkeye quips “trust me, it isn’t”.

>Extended fight between Thor and the Vision after the Vision is brought to life.

>Extended version of Banner infiltrating Ultron’s fortress to rescue Black Widow. She then uses Chitauri weapons that Baron Strucker had salvaged to fight off the Ultron drones.

>Alternative version of Black Widow bringing out the Hulk by pretending to have toyed with Banner’s emotions in order to put the Hulk on a leash and mocking him for thinking she could actually love him.

>Hawkeye policing the Twins throughout the Battle of Sokovia. At one point, he coaches them in how to more effectively use their powers to battle the Ultron drones.

>At one point, Thor is set on fire by an Ultron drone, and Quicksilver runs around him to quell by flames by cutting off the oxygen.

>Extended version of the Battle of Sokovia with more more action beats.

>Under Banner’s influence, the Hulk specifically programs the Quinjet to fly into Space in order to commit suicide, and actually reaches the upper stratosphere and sees stars.

>Captain America and Iron Man are at odds throughout the movie and part on less amicable terms.

>Alternative ending where Quicksilver survives due to Dr. Cho’s medical technology and joins the Avengers alongside Scarlet Witch.
