Steve made himself go to every funeral, every memorial. He shunned the media, saying things like ‘it’s not about us right now’.
He had no patience for that.
Only once did he really break. At a graveside service with the other Avengers, Nick, Maria and a handful of SHIELD agents.
That reporter picked the wrong time. “Captain, what’s it like being a hero?”
“I don’t know. I’d tell you to ask him,” he motioned to the gravestone, “but I doubt he’d have answer for you.”
After all, Phil Coulson was the real hero. Anyone who thought otherwise was an idiot.
