Imagine if you will a Captain America third film, about the title character Steve Rogers, an end to a trilogy that started before being bought by the mega corp Disney, in 2016 that actually had it’s main hero go against his government’s nazi roots and leanings.
Picture Steve Rogers as Captain America, training the newly branded Avengers, is given the orders from his government that he and his team must comply with the newly unveiled in response to Sokovia and Ultron Accords, which demand they become state sanctioned soldiers. Which is really a response to the Avengers flaunting all governance in their AOU rampage against Hydra and it’s allies. We see an incite of public fear of superheroes out of control, Wanda’s foreign power out of control, there needs to be a government order/leader in USA, but Steve’s not it, look at how he destroyed Shield, look he’s a bygone etc.
Steve and co refuse to be used. Wanda as a formerly used person. Sam with his ex-military history. Rhodey forced to obey by government contract, dragging Vision with him per lack of personhood and mistaken belief following command. Natasha plays coy on how to ally.
Before they can mount a plan of objection, T’Chaka, a visiting diplomat of Wakanda, is murdered while in the States. It looks like the Winter Soldier. Is it Bucky off the rails? Hydra returned? Or just a way to pass the Accords and gain power?
As Steve and co pursue against a revenge filled Black Panther, the parallel hero by another state/country, Steve must find and face Bucky and discover and uncover what kind of superhero/soldier his country has made and wants.
When Bucky and/or Steve are caught, Steve demands America answer if it will embrace the true him, Steve Rogers, or it’s rotted veneer image. Who is guilty? The soldier forced to pull the trigger or the people ordering fire? Is America still at war and is it with “outsiders” or itself?
Captain America; Trial of America aka Serpent Society
Starring Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, T’Challa, Wanda, Sam Wilson, Natasha, Sharon as CIA and government gal, Bernie Rosenthal as Steve’s lawyer and possible GF
And as the villains possible elect Ross manipulating the public, and historically Peggy allowing the system to corrupt itself and Cap’s image, and throw in a Rumlow playing the victim or pretending to be Bucky or make the case a soldier is a body for war/pain/use and so Bucky is complicit and can’t have personhood/recovery cause Rumlow can’t natch.
#this is my Cap 3 #see no Tony #no Zemo #no taking the idea superheroes can't vigilante because the medium of the genre collapses if we poses that question civil war comics and film #but running with the question of should superheroes be tools of power #and laws of country versus individual rights and freedoms #pro steve rogers #cacw meta
Rhodey was arrogant and dumb in CACW, but he was smart in Endgame.
Never has a character made me more infuriated
#marvel studios#marvel #what if...? #bucky barnes#black widow#loki #rhodey was literally the dumbest in civil war #who gives a shit about ross having a congressional medal of honor? #or 117 countries? #like sit down son #steve read the dang thing and rhodey didnt and pointed put its flaw #sorry rhodes but civil war was your bad day #writers did you dirty #rhodey was on thin ice that entire movie with me #i was literally the watcher #screaming in my head at him
This is probably my favorite screencap/scene in the entire MCU, cause Peter, not only, just casually caught a punch from the one and only Winter Soldier, but proceeded to twist his arm slightly to look at it, and Bucky looks fucking terrified
Like he is in shock rn
#mcu#marvel mcu#marvel#bucky barnes#spiderman#peter parker #captain america civil war #peter strength is honestly super fucking scary #idk how much he can lift in the mcu #but in the comics the most is like between 100-300 #im pretty sure #just did a quick google search it says that mcu peter can lift 12.5 tons #but it also says 10 and also 75 tons #so who knows🤷🏽♀️ #either way peter is a fucking beast #he is a goddamn monster (affectionate)
im watching black widow and god im so mad at how natasha was treated
#this movie should have come out right after civil war! #the dynamics are fun! it fleshes out natasha and gives her her own plotline! #yelana could have popped in and out of movies living her life #and when scarjo was done playing natasha they could have had her sustain an injury that meant she had to retire so yelana #steps into the avengers and natasha would be out doing work to end human trafficking in her retirement
This is getting so tiresome I just can’t believe it. This idea that all peoples and all cultures can coexist in the same country at peace, is so moronically stupid I am gobsmacked at the ignorance of the public. I know what the politicos, media wretches, and NGO’s want, and accept, what’s happening. They know they can destroy this country by destroying white, Christian, and intact families.
Currently crying, shaking, and throwing up (LMAO). The Martell """stans""" called me ugly and stupid and to get out of Elia’s tag. Also some of them liked my post which was a big shock (again LMAO)
#ASOIAF#Elia Martell #I didn't even say Elia murdered anyone what in the hell #Correct me I'm wrong but weren't Rhaegar and Lyanna gone for a while and everybody was like K. #But then Brandon didn't read the letter and sent him and his dad to their death's #That theory about Brandon not knowing how to read sounding more and more plausible NGL #The civil war was going to happen eventually #So tired of hearing how Rhaegar is the sole person to be responsible for the thousands upon thousands of deaths #But then again we get the oh-so romantic line of Prince Rhaegar loved his Lady Lyanna and thousands died for it #Too bad Elia Rhaenys and Aegon were a part of that thousands SIGH George
'Edgehill, a hilly ridge in Warwickshire, was the scene of the first major battle of the Civil War in 1642 when 14,000 Englishmen fought one another - and left behind psychic emanations that, if reports are to be believed, are to be encountered every anniversary of the battle, notwithstanding alterations to the calendar which would make the present date 12 October.'
'There are many convincing accounts of curious experiences on the site of the battle, but each 23 October, it is said, visitors have glimpsed a spectral band of soldiers, or seen lights over the battlefield, or heard the sound of men and horses, of hoofbeats and neighing, of the jingle of harness and the grind of wheels ... the phantoms of Edgehill are among the more interesting instances of alleged recurring psychic phenomena...'
Alexander Stewart Webb, born in 1835, was a native of New York City. He came from a well to do family and a long line of military descendents. Webb attended private preparatory schools, was admitted to the United States Military Academy and graduated in the top third of his class in 1855. The young 2nd Lieutenant’s first post, as an Artillery Officer, was in Florida, where he saw action in the Seminole War. After varied assignments he returned to the Academy, in 1857, as an assistant mathematics professor. He remained as an instructor, until he decided to resign his position and volunteer for combat duty.
In April of 1861, Webb was sent to Fort Pickens, Florida and was promoted First Lieutenant, serving in the 2nd U.S. Artillery. He saw action, as a Captain, at the first Battle of Bull Run, served under General Barry as an aid-de-camp in the defense of Washington, was instrumental in the artillery placement at Malvern Hill, on the Peninsula, was active in the Maryland Campaign, served on staff at Antietam, where he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and in 1863, General Meade finally gave Webb battle command at Chancellorsville. His performance and reports of his leadership qualities were forwarded to Lincoln, who promoted Webb to Brigadier General.
Brigadier General Webb, serving under Meade, was given command of the Philadelphia Brigade and deployed with other II Corps, at Gettysburg, on Cemetery Ridge, July 2, 1863. Webb’s detachment repulsed an attack of a Georgian brigade and followed up, capturing over 300 and counter attacked Early’s troops on Cemetery Hill.
On July 3, 1863, Webb’s Philadelphians manned the center of the line, behind a low stone wall. Confederate General Lee had instructed General Pickett’s men to assault Cemetery Ridge and proceeded the advance with the greatest artillery barrage of the Civil War. Thousands of Pickett’s troops advanced over one mile, broken and bloodied by counter-battery canister and grape, to pierce Webb’s center. As the Confederates approached the wall, Webb stood in front of his line, cool and calm, attempting to inspire his men. Two Union companies panicked and ran, Webb hailed a steadfast supporting command and they wouldn’t advance to fill the breach. As the Rebels climbed the wall, Alexander Webb prepared to defend his position all alone. At the last second, two New York Regiments, fired down the line, enfilading the attacking Confederate’s, these New Yorker’s charged and in a bloody hand to hand engagement, drove the enemy back across the field. Webb had fallen, shot through the groin, but still attempted to fight on and rally his men. Lincoln nominated Webb for his gallantry and the Senate confirmed his promotion to brevet Brigadier General on February 14, 1865.
General Webb returned to command after Gettysburg and saw additional action at Bristoe Station, the Overland Campaign and was again severely wounded, perceived as fatal, at the Battle of Spotsylvania. He returned to service in January of 1865, as Chief of Staff of the Army of the Potomac, till the end of the Civil War.
For his brave and gallant leadership, Webb was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor on September 28, 1891, the citation read, “Rank and organization: Brigadier General, U.S. Volunteers. Place and date: At Gettysburg, Pa., 3 July 1863. Entered service at: New York, N.Y. Born: 15 February 1835, New York, N.Y. Date of issue: 28 September 1891. Citation: Distinguished personal gallantry in leading his men forward at a critical period in the contest.”
