He lost everything. You know, Erik, Raven and his legs. We built the school, the labs, this… this whole place, then just after the first semester the war in Vietnam got worse. Many of the teachers and all the students were drafted, and it broke him. He retreated into himself. I..I wanted to help, do something, so I designed a serum to treat his spine. You know, derived from the same formula that helps me control my mutation. I take just enough to keep myself balanced, but he takes too much. I tried easing him back, but he just couldn’t bear the pain, the voices. The treatment gives him his legs, but it’s not enough. He’s…he’s just lost too much.
okay but here’s a concept: peter and hank. everything is peaceful. they drink tea together in the morning. peter is finally calm. hank is finally relaxed. they nap together on saturdays. they’re in love.
to everyone that is upset over there being no romantic relationship between Steve and Bucky in Civil War:
Maybe this is a lead up! Steve gave up the shield for Bucky. Maybe in a following movie like Infnity Wars or even the Black Panther film if they tie in we’ll get some kind of admission, or even a kiss!
Stay positive!! Don’t let one movie spoil an entire franchise. You still have fics and fanart and many more years for the MCU to evolve and for Marvel/Disney to become something progressive and accepting!!
(Also the possibility of an extended cut of the movie like they didn’t with XMDOFP!!)
