they watched the avengers

anonymous asked:

Hi, I'm a huge fan of all the comic panels you post. I've read a ton of awesome comics based on your postings. You talked about a comic a few weeks ago where all the Avengers were watching some of Steve's 1940s films and making fun of him for it. Spider-Man was there, Iron Man was there (he was sleeping through the film), and I think Wolverine was there too. I was wondering what comic that was from, because I would love to read it. Thanks!

Hi Anon,

Firstly, yay, I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog. As for your question…

Do you mean this panel here?

This was from a parody comic set during the Fear Itself event called Shame Itself. They weren’t watching old Cap films, they were watching the most powerful Marvel villains take over the world via YouTube videos captured from people’s cell phones and completely bored by it…

“He’s got jewelry!” heh, that will always be funny.

Anyway, the forward to this comic was hilarious…

So, I was going through my screen shots to refill the A Softer XCOM queue, and I caught this one and just. Wow. For as much as I gripe about Firaxis’s visual worldbuilding, they do some beautiful visual character building. Lily’s a damn competent engineer, and she has no problem ordering her own engineers about (that’s right! don’t just stand there! help the lady move the power converter!) or confronting Tygan. But that body language upon first meeting the Commander, upon having to explain that her father is dead and she is XCOM’s best hope? Damn, does that visibly scare the hell out of her. She’s hunched up, she’s clinging to a wrench, and she’s relying on ROV-R to make the first impression. 

And it’s not a command staff thing. I don’t think I have as many screenshots on hand, but she’s damn near comfortable around Central. Watch them in the additional material for WOTC, Avenger defense, or Chosen assault cut scenes. Even when Central is shouting (and let me tell you, as a human being only a few years younger than Lily, having Central shouting would give me hives), Lily is never, ever anywhere near this nervous. Which brings up a lot of questions about just what’s behind Lily’s stage fright. 

(Personally, I chalk it up to the whole ‘well, Central didn’t mention Dad was DEAD and now it’s all on me thanks Central’ bit, but I digress.)

In any case, it’s a great bit of visual character development. 10/10 Firaxis.

My ideal coming out scene for Steve

Avengers are flying out on a mission, steve and Bucky are jumping out first to scout the area bc they are Sneaky Super Soldiers. They approach the jump zone and steve says something like “stay safe Buck, I’ve got your back” or some corny shit.

Bucky turns from the open door and uses his metal hand to pull steve into a gentle but insistent kiss before running to dive out of the plane. All without changing his expression from winter-soldier determined because he is a fucking bad ass.

Now we have the endless possibilities of team reactions. I give you Thor, looking joyfully clueless as always; happy for his friends and their Warrior Embrace without any idea something significant just happened. Natasha, with a knowing, I-knew-it smirk. Sam nodding to himself like alright, that’s cool, shoulda seen that coming. Clint and Wanda with equally shocked I thought we were the only ones with secret relationships faces. Vision and Banner looking perplexed and impressed respectively with the unpredictability of humans. T'Challa not giving a shit because he already knew - hello he was there for Bucky being re-frozen and asking for steve every time he was thawed.

A dumbfounded Tony just sputters, standing up before steve can follow.

“B-but I thought you had that long-lost love affair with Peggy!”

Steve’s face softens. “She’ll always be my girl.”

Tony’s still confused. “What about that-uh Sharon chick?”

Steve shrugs indifferently. “She was cute.”

“I don’t-”

“It’s called being bisexual,” Steve interrupts with a grin. “Look it up, you can google it now.”

And that little rascal, proud as FUCK for understanding how google works now, gives his team a sassy salute before flipping out of the plane after his boyfriend.

  • Me: watches infinity war trailer
  • Me: is shaking
  • Me: is hyperventilating
  • Me: literally cannot breathe
  • Me: sees peter hurt on the ground saying sorry to tony
  • Me: CANNOT FUCKING BREATHE AND IS CRYING
  • Marvel: HAHA ALL NOW YOU HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER YEAR
  • Me: crying on the ground in fetal position dying a little on the inside trying to control breathing but can't wants to cry and can't wait another year for this shit to come out
  • Captain America: PATIENCE
  • Steve Rogers: You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you.
  • Tony Stark: I think I would just cut the wire.
  • Steve Rogers, who knocked down a flag pole instead of climbing it to retrieve the flag and catch a ride with Agent Carter who probably told that story to Tony at some point: Always a way out.
