My childhood.

Funny story. I was five when my dad took me to see this at the theatre. I have no recollection but a big dude stood or hulked in front of me blocking my view. As the story goes I called out,”hey buddy, move it!” in my little five year old voice. Dad was shushing me in case the dude turned around to start something (with a five year old?). Family breaks out this story every once and a while.

It’s apparently a lot funnier to them. >_>

Not the hero we deserved, but the one that we needed.

If Fox thinks that a Muslim can’t write a book about Christianity

would they agree that men can’t write legislation about women?



Heh. Point is on point

We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

Oh, please.

Important, always-relevant comic done by the wonderful Ursa Eyer.

Wearing a brightly coloured jumpsuit with a great big target on your torso probably doesn’t seem very practical from an urban camouflage point of view, but for Steve Rogers, it’s perfect. Why is he wearing the old costume? So people will know that he’s Captain America. He’s trusting that people will see him and rally around him, because that’s the whole point of Cap.

That Cap/Falcon conversation (“How do we know which ones are the bad guys?” “They’ll be the ones shooting at us.”) isn’t just a snappy one-liner, it’s a tactical decision. In a war where no one is wearing a uniform and anyone could be the enemy, Steve is consciously choosing to represent one side instead of sneaking into SHIELD headquarters in disguise. So not only will he be able to tell who the bad guys are because they’re shooting at him, everyone else will be able to tell as well. Loyal SHIELD agents will know that if you’re shooting at the dude in the red, white and blue superhero costume, then you’re the enemy.

There’s also the possibility that the vintage Captain America costume helps Bucky regain his memory for long enough to stop murdering Steve in the face. Steve’s 21st century hair, clothes and uniform would all render him well-nigh unrecogniseable to Bucky’s distant memories of their life together, which are almost entirely subsumed by the Winter Soldier’s conditioning. Cap’s old wartime costume is the only thing that stands a chance of seeming familiar.

get a load of this non-standard sidearm configuration - two small-capacity derringer pistols, both strapped at the winter soldier’s (most likely) dominant side:

  • top is a COP .357 Derringer pistol, chambered for four .357 Magnum cartridges - it’s a heavy, huge size for a Derringer, but it’s a solid choice for a defensive weapon, often chosen as a back-up piece for law enforcement because of its powerful cartridge
  • bottom looks to be an Intratec TEC-38 two-shot polymer-framed pistol, housing .38 Special cartridges - guns this size, this small of a capacity, don’t serve much purpose in distance or combat.  they’re meant for close-range (contact-range/point-blank) defensive use, or as a last resort.

given this set-up, these two weapons are the winter soldier’s penultimate and final outs.  the COP .357 can get off four shots, enough to take out four attackers if he’s not already disabled or trapped, but he doesn’t appear to be packing anything to reload and both these weapons are a different caliber than his other sidearms.

that 2-shot pistol, that’s the Winter Soldier’s cyanide capsule.  that’s his way out - one .38 to the hollow of his jaw is his nuclear option, the one that he probably doesn’t even know is there, the one that’s simmering just below the surface of the mission that’s forced into his mind.

the winter soldier doesn’t lose; but if he did, if he could, if he was - 

all assets are disposable.
