Natasha Romanoff: S.H.I.E.L.D Agent, Russian Spy, Assassian, Matchmaker

Okay what I love most about this is Nat knows his neighbors.

(okay I love everything about this, especially Natasha continuing this conversation like they totally just didn’t jump out of a plane and murder/incapacitate twelve people, but we’ll focus on one thing in particular)

It’s really fueling my headcanon that Natasha just comes over and bothers Steve when she’s bored sometimes. She just comes in through the window sometimes, picks the lock when Steve isn’t home and rearranges his furniture (“The harmony of the room was off-balance” “That is a load of bullshit” “Have you gone undercover as a New Age specialist? No? Shut up. Harmony”), replaces his healthy food with microwave dinners. Things like that. Natasha is a world-class troll.

But she has cased his neighbors. She’s watching his back, making sure he’s in a good neighborhood, that he’s got a safe space to come home to.

STEVE PROTECTS HER ON THE FRONT LINES, SHE PROTECTS HIM ON THE HOME FRONT

Most men simply hate men like me… yet you always treated me with respect, compassion. Why? Is it because… you’re one of us? Is it because, deep inside, under all that macho bravado you’re really a sorry excuse for a man… like me? 

This is honestly one of the darkest moments in a Captain America comic book, to me. Mother Superior is controlling Arnie and making him sing this degrading, terrible song. And if you missed it, in the midst of it, she has him accuse Steve of being gay himself. The message is clear: How could you accept someone like him, someone abnormal and disgusting, unless you were one of them?

Now, here’s the thing, the fact that she accuses Steve of being gay means NOTHING to him because HE DOESN’T CARE. He says it right there, Arnie’s love with Michael is 100% equal to Steve’s love with Bernie. He doesn’t need to defend himself. “They’re the disease.” Hatred is the disease. The thing that spreads and infects and degrades is hatred

The Red Skull cannot FATHOM that a man like Steve, blond, blue-eyed, Anglo-Saxon Steve, would willingly spend time with POC, and Jews, and gay people. (He is referencing specific people here, in order: Bernie, Arnie, Sam, Jack.) Because the Red Skull is infected with hate. It’s also in this issue that the Skull reveals that he had a childhood similar in some ways to Steve: lost both his parents, lived his life poor, beat up by those around him because he was small. The difference, though, is that the Skull chose hate. He chose hate, and anger, and evil. Steve chose love, and goodness, and compassion.

But here’s another thing: Ok, so Steve isn’t racist or homophobic or full of hatred, what does he want, a cookie? No, he doesn’t. Steve is angered by the suggestion that he does any of this for praise, or worship. Steve does the right thing because it is the right thing. And in fact, his friends do not exist in this arc just to be tokenized. While Steve is having this discussion with the Skull, Bernie, Sam, and Jack (and Arnie, but his mind has been tortured by Mother Superior’s tricks at this point) are finding a way out. They DON’T need Steve to come save them. Because unlike what the Skull thinks, they are, of course, their own people. They have autonomy and free will and the capability to work their way through situations. The Skull doesn’t see that, because to him, they are not human beings, they are not people. But the Captain America comic book is showing us that they are. They do not exist just in this white man’s world. They are free-thinking and capable individuals.

Captain America, at the end of the day, is about goodness and equality, justice and freedom, compassion and understanding. And Steve is a good person, but he doesn’t deserve extra for being a decent human being. He’s just doing what’s right. 

Man, I am exhausted and sick right now, so I’m not sure I’m doing this justice, but you should totally read Cap v1 #295-300. Great issues. Not saying they’re problem-free, at the end of the day this is a comic book about a white man written by white men, but overall it’s a fantastic arc.

From Captain America #296 and 298

That’s it, WE CAN ALL GO HOME NOW. There won’t ever be a better graphic that summarizes sexist double standards in today’s geek culture.

THIS IS OUR CULTURE IN A NUTSHELL.

Can we talk about how Steve Rogers would probably fight to keep abortion legal and safe, because he saw how many people used to die back in the day because all abortions were illegal and unsafe and he knows if a person is pregnant and don’t want to be pregnant they will find a way to not be pregnant?

Can we talk about Steve Rogers telling off right wing politicians who say minimum wage isn’t supposed to be a living wage? Can we have him saying ‘No, I remember when it was instituted. It was supposed to be a living wage, senator.’

Can we talk about Steve Rogers supporting a raise in SNAP benefits, because he knows how it feels to go hungry?

Can we talk about Steve Rogers having problems with this country’s military industrial complex?

#ProgressiveFarLeftSteveRogers

What if Right Wing Politicians were using him as like a mascot before he was defrosted. Like Fox News has “What Would Captain America Do?” shirts and shit like that.

And then Steve wakes up “He’s just like, lol no don’t even say my name anymore.”

And then the daily show has an entire segment dedicated to the speech he gives and fox news’ reaction.

Steve Rogers is not the hyper-masculine ultra-patriotic gun-toting conservative puppet that Fox News wants him to be. 

The news media has a field day on both sides about how he reacted to fox news. 

Liberals and dems are cheering him on and talking about how great he is and having him speak on shows and conservatives and republicans are enraged and offended and yell about how he has betrayed them and try to get him to mess up in interviews and go “well no but you really mean this right?” and he blasts them down every time. 

I need this written 4000 years ago 

Me too Sebastian, me too.
