Perhaps Steve would be happier if the Avengers all got tattoos on their arms with…ID numbers. Much easier because ID cards can be lost. Why doesn’t he just talk to Magneto about that? Steve can suggest that Erik’s two brats can be the first to be tattooed.
I just wasn’t convinced by this AU until I saw this. Now I’m really intrigued. I don’t suppose someone can send me a list of links for fic and/or art?
Chris Evans really IS Captain America. Guh.
This is one of my favorite scenes in this whole movie. As the person who’s probably the oldest among the people I hang out with, I relate to Steve so much here. And every one of my friends becomes Tony with the eyeroll. Fuckers.
on the other hand, “Thor” does make it clear that the Asgardians are highly advanced aliens rather than what we’d think of as gods, and there’s a line in the same movie about “the place where the humans think we’re gods” that makes it clear that they don’t think of themselves as such.
And this is fine for Thor to have made that comment. Sadly, it doesn’t negate the dick way Steve proclaimed his religious beliefs. He could have said, “I only believe in one god, and he wouldn’t dress like that,” and it wouldn’t have been such a bigoted statement. But he said, “There IS only one god…,” and I think that no matter what he believes personally, he wouldn’t have made such a dick statement. I’m still not sure what was up with that since Joss didn’t have to pander to Fox the way the X-Men franchise does.
