… The Winter Soldier killed Howard and Maria Stark…
Bucky killed Howard and Maria Stark.
BUCKY FUCKING BARNES KILLED HOWARD AND MARIA STARK.
Make the goddamn connection. ‘Accident’ my ass…
I know it wasn’t the real Bucky. He was buried underneath a shit ton of Hydra brainwashing and memory loss. But just the idea of him murdering Tony’s parents without even knowing is unimaginable and it hurts my heart. Fuck you Marvel and all your damn feels.
Not just murdering Tony’s parents, but murdering a man Bucky no doubt knew personally and might have considered a friend, murdering someone who helped Steve rescue him from the HYDRA base and who we can be 99.99999% sure Bucky himself would not have wanted to kill.
HYDRA killed the Starks.
There’s no actual word on if Winter Soldier was complicit in that particular operation.
It doesn’t appear to be his MO, anyway.
HYDRA caused the car accident there’s no doubt about that but IIRC after the Stark death newspaper is shown Winter Soldier’s face flashes briefly which made me think for awhile that he might have had something to do with it but now I am not so sure.
But yeah it’s not really confirmed that it was him and like doktorfylthe said it’s not really his MO. I think Winter Soldier would have sniped them from afar but considering how famous and powerful the Starks were, HYDRA probably thought having them die on an accident would’ve been less suspicious (having them assassinated would have raised a lot of questions and investigations).
Either way Bucky is going to have so much guilt and angst once he realizes/remembers everything he did as the Winter Soldier.
Halfway through explaining to requiodile how they’d done the arm prop for TWS I realised I was quoting info from the artbook that I hadn’t seen on Tumblr. So here you go!
"What the directors described was an arm almost beyond what Tony Stark could do now, the highest tech possible, so whoever had replaced Winter Soldier’s arm was beyond what even our main technological hero of the Marvel Universe could accomplish," Meinerding says. "That allowed us to go with the horizontal cut lines across the arm, something fairly traditional in the Marvel Universe, so it was kind of cool to be able to do it on-screen."
Shane Mahan, Physical Suit Effects Supervisor at Legacy Effects, describes the process of creating the Winter Soldier’s arm from a life-cast of actor Sebastian Stan: “First, we do an exact mold of the actor’s arm for the size and the dimension, and then we do a casting out of that. But we also took him to get a 3-D scan of his arm, so we had digital information as well as a hard, real-world casting to work from. We took the designs from Ryan Meinerding’s design team, and then one of our digital artists here — Won-il Song — created a digital sculpture.”
"I designed this to be a seamless forearm piece," Mahan continues. "And after the digital sculpture has been done, and the part has been grown and cleaned up, it matches up to a bicep piece. One of our artists, Chris Swift, is pictured testing it."
Legacy created two versions of the Winter Soldier’s arm. “We made one from foam rubber with tracking markers on it for extreme action,” Mahan says. “And then there were these arms made of urethane that were metalized and had less action mobility, but for certain shots looked reflective and really great.”
More scans etc. here.
WHY THE FUCK IS THIS HAPPENING
Apparently bullshit but a vicious way to scare the shit out of people. http://www.newrepublic.com/article/117415/relax-ukraine-not-ordering-its-jews-register
To answer the previous question, if you wanted to start some serious unrest, this is your game plan. Go out in masks, set up a “Government Order”, do your jackboot best to get it widespread, and suddenly, shit is going to hit the international fan, and your civil unrest is warming up to topple whichever direction you’d like to push it.
It’s quite well thought through by whoever’s pulling the lever on that printing press.
Ten years down the road Tony is at a Science convention where he comes face to face with a young mechanical engineer. The young man says. “I’m Harley Keener. I don’t suppose you remember me, but we shared an adventure 10 years ago in Tennessee. You changed my life. I hope you don’t mind but ever since that night I have thought of you as the closest thing I ever had to a father.”
Tony grins. “You’re trying to guilt trip me.”
The young man smiles. “It was worth a try.”
They laugh, and Tony buys Harley a beer and asks him about his work and later Tony quietly makes sure that Harley’s project gets the funding it needs. The same way he made sure that Harley got into a good college and had the right scholarships. Because Harley saved him when he had no one(and maybe, just maybe because if only for that one night Harley was the closest Tony ever came to having a son.)
SOMEONE WRITE THIS
I. AM. WOUNDED.
im really pissed that palindrome isnt palindrome backwards
Ah, yes but emordnilap is a word!
An emornilap is any word that, when spelled backwards, produces another word. Examples of emordnilap pairs include:
- desserts & stressed
- drawer & reward
- gateman & nametag
- time & emit
- laced & decal
- regal & lager
And therefore “emordnilap palindrome” is an emordnilap palindrome.
Which I, for one, think is really frickin’ cool.
On that day, humanity received a grim reminder.

I don’t understand because wasn’t Olaf’s actions of lighting the fire, almost melting and then trying to save her and act of true love and shouldnt that have unfrozen her heart?
AU where Peggy prevents Kruger from getting that last vial by injecting it into herself.
The Serum worked on her too. No muscles, or height, but she got the rest, and it slowed her aging. But the part that made her deadly with a gun, that focus and ruthlessness that made her a killer, also grew.
So at the end, when Steve awoke from his frozen nap, she was there to greet him, but she had a new name by then. One that described the cool, efficient predator she had become:

Sitting on top of tables increases happiness by 5000%. I wonder if anyone actually knows why.
