Okay. This looks bad.

Oh man, Punk!Captain America was so much fun. I wanted to keep him very much Steve Rogers and old school, so he’s got a little bit of Dieselpunk going on. Outfit obviously very much influenced by the movie. A note about the tattoo on his neck, because I know it will be asked: It’s a banner that circles completely around his neck and reads “STARK CARTER BARNES”. Once I finish a few more punks, I’ll print a book that includes all of the art, as well as more views/explanations of all of the tattoo designs from all of the characters :D
→ An endless list of fictional
or historical“characters” I can’t help but worship→ Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Marvel/MCU)
I only act like I know everything.
happy birthday, nataliaromanov!
CA:TWS, as a film, was a fantastic exercise in putting genuinely decent and optimistic characters (except for Steve himself, at this point, but we can go into that later) up against a nearly ripped-from-the-headlines plot that distills a lot of this country’s cynicism and negativity, particularly in my age group. More than any of the other MCU films, I think this was aimed directly at us, the people in our late teens and twenties and early thirties who sometimes start crying on the toilet because not only will we never be able to stop working our terrible service-industry jobs, we will also never be able to make a safe and comfortable world for the kids who come after us, or take care of our parents when they need us. On top of all that, we’re in this lame dystopian surveillance society where the government hates us, military force has taken the place of diplomacy and stuff like drone warfare is something we’re supposed to just accept, like it’s not horrifying. It’s a story specifically for my generation to try and find some solidarity with.
Which is a pretty ballsy play for a movie with a main character that’s 95.
Y’all, I truly don’t have enough time on this planet to explain to you how subversive CA:TWS is. Layers on layers of CSPAN debate and Daily Show punditry packed into a 2.5 hour movie about superheroes. We’ll be studying this movie one day in film and culture classes. It is streets ahead.;
Why am I laughing so hard
