no but imagine this for a fucking minute
its 1924 and the jazz era is in full swing. the newly formed league of nations has put together a war crimes agency to ensure security against individuals and groups that would use and misuse the technology of the great war; that’s Shield. (It’s not an acronym; it’s just Shield.)
tony stark owned an american company that makes guns and artillery that was sold to the british and french during the great war, and he’s absurdly rich and famous as usual. when he was captured by german troops in 1917 after being subject to a gas attack, he built himself a mechanical filter he could install in his chest to assist his breathing, and uses its power source, the element plutonium, to drive a suit of powered armour. he’s renounced arms dealing now and has built new marks of his iron man suits and he tries to use it to diffuse situations that could lead to war.
steve rogers was the son of an irish immigrant in 1860 who was a three-month volunteer when the civil war began. struck ill in camp before ever seeing the battlefield, he is subject to the radical personal experimentation of a chemist that leaves him at the peak of human potential, and he takes up the propaganda role as Captain Yankee and ends up leading the union against the confederates and their sinister, cultish engineering department… hydra. while batting in the deep winter against an experimental ironclad gunship armed with endothermic rockets that can destroy washington dc, cap gets frozen for decades and washed out to sea, eventually being recovered by a scientific dive.
bruce banner, chemist, attempting to recreate his grandfather’s serum that cured steve rogers of fatal malaria, was experimenting on a formula himself when overseas in 1918. exposure to chlorine gas has an unexpected consequence, transforming him into a massive, monstrous grey creature fueled by his anger
natasha romanoff was a relative of the tsar who joined the russian revolution but was subsequently targeted for liquidation due to her origins. clint barton, the man who got her out of russia and straight into the espionage game in the balkans. now shes in new york, working anti-gang organizations, while clint has fallen in with a much rougher crowd.
and finally, thor, the asguardian prince, banished to earth by his father for his reckless impulses. it didn’t take him long to become fast friends with none other than nikola tesla, using his power over storms to assist the scientist (and his partner in high-energy electrical science, jane foster) in the creation of a free energy net for new york city. through his selfless actions he managed to regain the ability to wield his hammer, but he has chosen to remain on earth to do as much good as possible.
and maybe keep tabs on his brother, who seems far to interested in leveraging the despondence and frustration of the losing sides of the great war…
*opens GM notebook and begins scribbling furiously*
I saw our future.
I’M FUCKING SCREAMING OMGGGGGG THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE 90S TO ROMANTICIZED BY NON-90S KIDS FUCK
I feel like a legend.
It has begun
As a child of the 90’s I often lament the convenience of being able to text or call my friends with my cell phone. Oh how I pine for the days when I would have to stride out onto the culdesac, curly pre-teen hair flowing dramatically as I blew the horn of Gondor to summon my young compatriots for an afternoon of merriment and capture the flag.
No, they took an existing comic book hero and changed his race (which will make absolutely no sense when you go from the white CA to the black CA with zero knowledge) instead of creating a new character to appeal to the idea. This is just stupid propaganda and Marvel should be ashamed for basically taking one thing from this side and shoving it over there to make people happy.
Sam Wilson is taking over as Captain America. Exactly like Winter Soldier took over as Captain America. Steve Rogers isn’t just magically becoming black. But surely you’re equally as outraged at Connor Hawke being whitewashed, right? Seeing as how “they took an existing comic book hero and changed his race” Surely, that upsets you just as much, right?
I think changing a characters race, gender, sexuality or any other identifier to please a group of people is bullshit, so yes, that equally pisses me off.
Nobody’s race is being changed. Steve Rogers is still Steve Rogers. Sam Wilson is still Sam Wilson.
we can’t have nothing
What kind of evil son of a bitch would look at these kids, SUPER FUCKING EXCITED KIDS, and be like, NAH, lemme make this all about me and my bullshit. Because I’m obviously a well adjusted adult and I can hand things not being about me and what I want for 4 seconds, Oh wait. This post isn’t even about the fucking new Cap really, it’s about CHILDREN EXTREMELY EXCITED ABOUT A FUCKING WELL KNOWN NAME BRAND HOUSE HOLD CHARACTER, not some side character that appears in the background of the background of a straight to dvd character, LOOKING LIKE THAT! Wtf is wrong with people!!!
FYI that ikazed fellow is the same one who hijacked the post about the Black student researching colon cancer, talking about “human excellence”. Groan.
Buzz effin’ kill.
Representation matters. I don’t give a fuck how people try to act like it doesn’t, but it does.
I bet that guy was really fanny flustered when Miles Morales became the new Spider-Man.
