Live Updates: Avengers In Lagos

by Nancy Smith

It's not easy to keep track of the Avengers' locations, but with the current state of technology, it's not too easy for them to stay hidden, either! Social media exploded a few minutes ago with clips and pictures of the Avengers' latest battle in Lagos flooding news feeds. We've compiled some of the most relevant below, and we'll keep adding as more information comes in!

How Much Is Too Much? Accountability in the Avengers Era 

by Rodney Valdez

Let’s get to the heart of the matter: how many people have to die before we realize the Avengers are out of hand? Well, let’s tally how many have died.

New York (2012): 873
Washington DC (2014): 98
Sokovia (2015): 1469
Lagos (2016): 421

Evidently, then, the number of innocent lives we’re willing to spare is higher than 2,861. Before the diehard Avengers fans get out their pitchforks, let’s remember: nobody is expecting them to quit. We simply need some accountability, or this group of vigilantes is going to spin out of control.

If they haven’t already, that is.











For all we idolize him, I think we sometimes forget that  Steve Rogers is thirty years old. It’s easy to put him on a pedestal and expect his decisions to be perfect, but while we’re stressing about high school and college and jobs, and he’s out there saving the world .

I’m not blaming him in the slightest for any mistakes, but maybe that is too much responsibility for one person.

Margaret Carter: The Passing of an Unsung Feminist Hero

by Melinda Akuwabi

I’m veering away from my usual posting today to comment on today’s news. As I’m sure most of you have heard by now, Peggy Carter passed away sometime yesterday. We tend to raise up  women like Beyoncé and Emma Watson as our icons, and let the stars who truly shine slip away without comment. That’s not to say those two women aren’t worthy of their icon status— but I’ve seen far too few articles about why Carter’s life mattered, and too many on her choice of lipstick.

She was perhaps best known for her involvement in Project Rebirth, and her friendship with Captain America. Her short-lived association (and rumored romance) with Steve Rogers, however, often eclipses her own formidable achievements. While she was certainly an active member of the Allied forces, the data-leak two years ago revealed her prominent role in the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR), formed to fight HYDRA. Most importantly— and most overlooked— she was a founder of SHIELD. It’s far too easy to write off SHIELD as an agency along with their failings, but it’s important to remember that they kept the world safe from dangers we could only dream of.

If not for the info dump in 2014, we may have never known how Carter influenced the world— in fact, we would not have known, and that’s probably the way she liked it. So here’s to a woman who was content to do the heavy lifting for little to no credit. Here’s to a woman we should all strive to remember and emulate, for far more than the curl of her hair or the shade of her lips. Here’s to Margaret Elizabeth Carter.

Rest In Peace.




Rest In Peace, Peggy.

Peggy Carter's Funeral: 12 Celebs You Might Spot

by Ada Wensworth

  1. Steve Rogers
    Our very own Captain America is rumored to have jetted off to London this morning. No prizes for guessing why: the funeral of his rumored lady love Peggy Carter is being held across the pond this weekend. Rogers did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
  2. The Duke and/or Duchess of Edinburgh
    Okay, it’s a stretch. But Peggy was an important figure in British history, and has been seen rubbing shoulders with Queen Elizabeth. Whether or not…

She’s in my city for the UN thing and I guess she arrived early because it’s not until tomorrow. She looked badass, okay, smoking hot in this leather jacket black-on-black combo. There were a few fans outside the airport terminal, but they all gave up after it got dark and went home. BUT NOT ME. I’m a stalker like that.

So she walks out of the airport at like 10 pm and I see her and I start shaking immediately. You guys know how much I love her. I called her name, and she whipped around and saw me— I thought she’d try to slink off, but nope, she smiled and came right up to me. And then I kind of just lost it and she hugged me and TOOK A SELFIE WITH ME. NATASHA ROMANOFF TOOK A SELFIE WITH ME I CAN’T> EVEN LOOK AT IT WITHOUT GRINNING LIKE A FOOL

I thanked her for everything she and the rest of the Avengers do for us, and she looked kinda sad and then she smiled and said “It’s our duty. We appreciate all you do to support us”. I told her I support her no matter what and I know they try their best and she goes “We make mistakes, but we do the best we can.”

I just. Best fan experience of my life. And I know normally she’s nice but she likes her privacy, so I was totally not expecting her to be so open with me.

Ten Fan Encounters That Prove Black Widow Is The Best

Natasha Romanoff’s been busy this week, starting off Monday in New York, and then heading to London before finishing in Vienna for tomorrow’s UN conference.

James Barnes Escapes from Secure Facility

by Patrick Gordons

General Ross confirmed this evening that James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes escaped from a secure holding cell in New York. A message from Interpol:

The fugitive known as James Barnes is currently on the run, and should be considered dangerous. If sighted, call the anonymous tip-line shown below. Do not approach and do not engage.

Although the General declined to comment, it is believed that Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson are accompanying Barnes, and both are linked to theft of government property from the same base where Barnes was being kept.



sokovianwanda reblogged barneslovesrogers


Here’s my theory. I realize it sounds insane, so buckle up.

What do we know? James Barnes allegedly died in 1944 fighting HYDRA, the only Howling Commando to give his life for the war. Yadda yadda, we all know this part. Steve and Bucky were super close, and after Cap woke up from the ice, he thought Peggy was his only friend— see: that special on Peggy for her 92nd birthday where he described her as his “last link to home”. Bear with me while I parse through this.

First thing we don’t know is, how is Bucky alive? Of course this could be a clone and not Bucky at all, but Cap really does look kinda emotional in some of the DC clips so. Obviously, Bucky secretly got the same super-serum that Cap did. Did he get it before or after he fell from the train? I’d say 99% chance before, because tbh I highly doubt any human could survive that fall. So Bucky got the serum, only it was kept secret, and when he fell he was frozen for 70 years same as Cap (SOULMATES!!!) It’s the only thing that makes sense.

More pressing concerns: why the fuck is Bucky Barnes shooting at Steve?? Much as my shipper heart doesn’t want to say it, he could’ve been evil all along. Maybe his death was faked, maybe he was never on Cap’s side to begin with. And option two is that he’s being mind-controlled like Hawkeye was (see: SHIELD mission reports from Battle of New York, but read the ones from just before the battle)

The only evidence we have either way is that Steve will apparently go through hell and back to protect Bucky, enough to break him out of a secure facility and turn himself into a wanted man. Idk about u guys, but I trust Steve Rogers. If he thinks Bucky is good, then Bucky’s good in my book.

An exclusive source tells us that Tony Stark, Natasha Romanoff, and James Rhodes are gearing up to hunt down Steve Rogers and his little fugitive! Yes, you read that right. Our source says, “Tony doesn’t want to hurt Cap. Or any of them. But Barnes is dangerous. And as long as Steve is protecting him, he’s harboring a criminal.”

Even more interesting: another little birdie might have mentioned that Cap’s pulled Hawkeye and Wanda Maximoff to his team— along with a surprise addition, Scott Lang (eagle-eyed readers may remember him as Ant-Man). It seems for this one, at least, Iron Man is outmatched!

dear107 reblogged winged-falcon


here we go again. so are we just ignoring the fact that this dude blew up the UN and killed t’chaka just because he’s hot and y’all got boners for angsty white dudes fucking?

It’s getting exhausting at this point. Like, I know fandom always raises the heavens and moves the earth to justify their Evil Hot White Guy TM, and I should expect it by now. But now people are making up a backstory to justify him. We have zero proof he is/was brainwashed. From where I'm standing, he looks like a run-of-the-mill villain but he's hotter and white, so out the window goes reality. I mean, I've been in fandom for long enough that I don’t even know why I expected any different, but…. this is a real guy?? and he really killed people?? and I’m just ???

I get this is fandom, but this is still kind of unbelievable. You know if T’Chaka was some smoldering piece of white bread, these same people would be forming angry mobs outside Avengers Tower.

Also, let’s not pretend that the level of empathy for the victims in the fights are anywhere the near same. New York got a fuckton of coverage and so help you if you made a comment about any of the Avengers being above-average in appearance. Sokovia was in-between. Lagos has literally just been fangirls staring at Steve’s ass while buildings crumbled around him. Get a grip, people.

Steve Rogers In Hiding?

by Jeanne Martin

Have we got scoop for you today! America’s Golden Boy, none other than Steve Rogers himself, is allegedly in hiding with— wait for it— his old friend Bucky Barnes! We’re sure most of you have seen the footage of Cap swinging his shield at former teammates to protect his childhood partner-in-crime (pun intended). It seems Steve is hellbent on making sure nobody gets near Barnes. Well, we certainly won’t try!

If you're reading this, Cap, you should probably just come home to face the music.

Breaking: Tony Stark Finalizes Deal With General Ross

by Chris Anton

While rumors have been swirling for a few weeks now, reports that the Avengers will be back have surfaced with more vehemence over the last three days. According to Pepper Potts, CEO of Stark Industries, Tony Stark is very close to coming to an agreement with General Ross and the United Nations— an agreement that will allow America’s controversial superheroes to return to their home country.

Potts would not comment on the charges that would be filed against them upon their return. However, a source from within the Secretary of State’s office claims that all the Avengers, as well as Barnes, will be exonerated. Whether or not this is true remains to be seen.




Steve Rogers Returns To US Along with Banished Avengers

by Laura Shepherd

Sources say that Captain America will be on US soil by tomorrow evening— along with escaped prisoners Clint Barton, Wanda Maximoff, Sam Wilson, and Scott Lang, and fugitive Natasha Romanoff. Interestingly, he will also be joined by Sergeant James Barnes, otherwise known as the Winter Soldier. All parties have been cleared of any wrongdoings. Reports say they were being sheltered in Wakanda by T’Challa, whose father T’Chaka was allegedly killed by Barnes in Vienna.

Nick Fury, former head of SHIELD intelligence agency, confirms the news: “Yeah, Cap’s back. They’ll all be back.” (Fury also confirmed that Barnes will be with them, but his direct quote cannot be printed here).






An Interview With Steve Rogers

Question: We’ve heard a lot of rumors going around lately, about what exactly went down. Can you shed some light on what happened between you and Tony Stark?

Steve Rogers: We, ah… Yeah. We had a disagreement.

Q: You had a very public battle…?

SR: Right. That battle, that was— I mean, we were never... [Pause] We're friends, all of us. Granted, our fights are on a larger scale, but we're not— There was never any intention to kill. I was just protecting an innocent victim from a prison sentence.

Q: When you say innocent victim, surely you don’t mean The Winter Soldier?

SR: No, I do.

Q: Okay. Okay, interesting. So how did Stark play into that?

SR: Well, he signed the accords. He was fighting for what he thought was right, trying to take the path he believed in— but so was I. And I’ve never cared what side of the law that puts me on.

Q: And that’s how you ended up in hiding with Mr. Barnes

SR: [Pause] I— Yes. Among other reasons.

Q: But you’re not in hiding now.

SR: [Smiles] No, I’m not. Neither is Bucky. Thanks to Tony, in large part, actually. But now that Bucky’s name’s been cleared in the case of the Vienna bombing, he’s back home.

Q: Can you elaborate on what you said earlier, about Barnes being a victim?

SR: He’s absolutely a victim. HYDRA had him, brainwashed him, none of it was his fault. None of it. The Soldier did terrible things, but Bucky didn’t have a choice in any of it.

Q: What you’re saying is, there won’t be any consequences for him.

SR: None. Not if I have anything to say about it.

Q: Captain Rogers, I understand your investment in this, but justice has to come from somewhere.

SR: Crucifying innocent people to give yourself a sense of justice? Is that what we’re stooping to now? We can't— That's not justice.

Q: What would be justice, then, in your opinion? How can the victims' families and the country be satisfied? Because personally, I fail to see another solution.

SR: Sometimes there is no justice. Sometimes there just can't be, not when there's nobody to blame.

Q: And that’s the case here?

SR : [stiffly] It is.

After Long Silence, Widow Comments on Barnes!

We obtained video of Natasha Romanoff speaking to a journalist outside Avengers Tower today. Transcript below:

Q: Mr. Barnes has been cleared and will not be charged with any of his crimes as the Soldier. You were on Tony Stark’s side. Do you have a comment?

NR: Sergeant Barnes is an innocent man who was brainwashed into committing atrocities. Stark sees that, and so do I.

Q: Thank you for your insight.

NR: [Pause] You don’t believe it.

Q: Not fully.

NR: Let me put it this way: Clint Barton and I have both done terrible things under someone else’s control. People understood then, and they’ll have to understand now. The Avengers won’t be risking our lives to save yours if you don’t have empathy for the situations we go through in order to do so.

Q: The people need—

NR: People need a scapegoat, and if you want one, I’ve found HYDRA to be conveniently evil. Barnes is not that scapegoat, and you will not turn him into one. Not if you want any of us to stick around.

Bucky Barnes: A Profile


“So it’s home now, for you?” I ask him at the end of our short interview, and when he nods warily, I press: “Where is home?” I'm all too aware that this is a person for whom home is a when rather than a where. Barnes’ eyes flit to the doorway, where Captain Rogers’ hulking form is trying (and failing) to remain inconspicuous. “I guess wherever this punk is,” he replies, with the barest flash of a smile.

okay, since the brainwashing theory has been confirmed, i think now’s a good time to put this out there: we all ship steve and bucky, and i’m excited that the fandom is growing, and also that most people seem to be totally supportive of their relationship, which is more than we could’ve hoped for say, 10 years ago.

but let’s remember these are real people guys. i mean yeah, i hope more than anyone they’re together but we don’t even know if either of them are gay or bi or w/e. RPF fandoms don’t really get this big usually, like we have trending stucky articles on fucking buzzfeed every other day, and i just want to make sure we don’t affect their relationship as friends or more, you know? and i feel like it’s kinda getting to that inevitable stage where someone is gonna bring it up or ask them about it and that would be a Very Bad Idea.

#stucky #sorry i just wanted to get this off my chest #also #if either of them gets a girl/boyfriend #can we try not to be abusive towards him/her

Bucky Barnes probably has PTSD and a whole host of mental health issues, for fuck’s sake stop all the screaming outside Avengers Tower. Leave him alone. He might not be ready for a relationship and just because you get your rocks off imagining him with Steve doesn’t mean that’s what he wants. There’s just something weirdly gross about this whole thing where here’s a man who’s been stripped of his agency, and here we are dictating what we want his life to be. I just. Ugh. I don’t even know what I’m saying and I can’t get it clear in my head but Leave. Bucky. Alone.

I totally see what you’re saying. There is a lowkey cringey vibe re: the agency thing, but I don’t know if it’s really doing any harm if we’re just squealing over Stucky behind our computers, y’know? Now the idiots outside the Tower holding up Bucky <3 Steve signs are a different ballgame altogether…

Not to highjack your post or anything, but just because I’ve been stewing over this for a while and you mentioned mental illness— I think we also have to be careful with everything we create because this fandom is so productive, which is awesome! But then you get 3000 fics where like, Steve looks at Bucky and suddenly he’s cured, or they go out for ice-cream and any triggers don’t affect him anymore. Like Steve’s love is ~All He Needs~ or smth. And I think, y’know, given this is a real person with real mental health issues (which we also don’t know about, like we’re just guessing here and that’s kinda cringey as well), there needs to be a sense of responsibility in how we write about him. Beyond just the quick fix-it fic that works in non-RPF fandom.

Captain Steve Rogers and Sergeant James Barnes

INTERVIEWER: Welcome back. We join you in an exclusive live interview from within Avengers Tower. Before the break, we talked to James Barnes and Steve Rogers about their history growing up together in Brooklyn, and then as part of the 107th. We're back, and delving into a topic you're all curious about, the reason we're here: the Winter Soldier. So, Sergeant Barnes, given that much of your memory was wiped by HYDRA, how much of what transpired in the 70 years you were presumed dead do you recall?

BARNES: No, they— I remember. Bits and pieces.


BARNES [strained]: Yes. All of them.

INTERVIEWER: You remember all your victims?

ROGERS: All his victims.

INTERVIEWER: [pause] I’m sorry?

ROGERS: All his victims. The Soldier’s. Or HYDRA’s.

BARNES [tightly]: Yeah. Yeah, I remember all my victims.

INTERVIEWER: I sympathize with what you went through, and I want you to know that the whole country stands behind you.

[Rogers snorts]


Alright, well, the majority of the country, then. What you went through… To come out the other side like this is commendable.

ROGERS: That’s what I keep saying. It’s just unbelievable. He broke through a highly-advanced level of programming to fish me out of the damned Potomac. Even through everything they did to him, he fought back. He’s a good man, a good- yeah.

BARNES: Way to lay it on thick.

ROGERS: What can I say? I’m proud. [Looks at camera] Any of you would be proud to call him your friend.

BARNES: Jesus, Rogers, put a sock in it.


INTERVIEWER: Stop me if this line of questioning is distressing— what was it that made you pull Captain Rogers out of the river?

BARNES: [After a few seconds] I— I don’t know. He said my name, and I couldn’t… I knew leaving him to die would be wrong.

INTERVIEWER: Sergeant Barnes, it’s true that some of your victims— forgive me, HYDRA’s victims— were children?


INTERVIEWER: And innocent bystanders?


INTERVIEWER: Then what made you save Captain Rogers over them?

BARNES [hesitantly]: I think maybe… I can’t say for sure. I think— Stop, Steve, it’s fine— He just said something and it was so familiar, and he wasn’t fighting me…

INTERVIEWER: I’d imagine the children didn’t put up much of a fight, either.

BARNES [softly]: No, they didn’t.

INTERVIEWER: Then why didn’t you spare them?

BARNES: I don’t know.

INTERVIEWER: If you could shoot innocent civilians simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, what stopped you from killing a man who was actively fighting you twenty minutes prior—

ROGERS: Okay, that’s enough. I thought you said you were on our side.


ROGERS: Bulls**t.

INTERVIEWER: I’m a journalist, Captain Rogers, it’s my responsibility to dig for holes without any biases.

BARNES: I’m fine, it’s fine, I can answer. All questions. I’ll answer. They deserve it, the victims’ families…

ROGERS: You don’t have to.

BARNES: I want to.

INTERVIEWER: Sergeant Barnes, to get back to the question then, what was it about Captain Rogers that got through to you, if the sequence of events occurred as you both claim?

BARNES: He knew me.

INTERVIEWER:  But he told the Times he said your name earlier in DC, so why on the helicarrier—

BARNES: I don’t know. I don’t know, alright? I don’t. I think my head— I think I knew, deep down…

INTERVIEWER: Knew he was good?

BARNES: Yes. No. I just… I think I knew, some part of me knew, when I looked at his face, and when he spoke to me, I knew a piece of me was in love with him— I couldn’t leave him to die. Even if I wanted to.


ROGERS: You… you’re in love with me?

BARNES [stricken]: Love with… love with you? I didn't say— Did I say that?


BARNES: No, not in love with— I loved you, sorry, no, cared for— I didn't mean... F*ck. That's not what I meant.

ROGERS: [Pause] You never told me.

BARNES: Sh*t, okay, I’m sorry. I wasn’t going to, I just— sorry.

ROGERS: For how long?

BARNES: God, I don't know. [Snorts] Probably 1940, at least. Maybe longer, late 30s? ’s a bit fuzzy. Look, I’ll get over it, alright? What are you- Why are you laughing.

ROGERS [Through laughter]: Buck. Buck.

BARNES: What? [Frowning] Steve, what?

ROGERS: Bucky— You— You love me…

BARNES: What? Stop laughing! F*ck you, alright? I’m sorry. I’ll get over it, okay? F*ck you Rogers, stop laughing at me. I know you’re outta my league—

ROGERS: Outta your league?!

BARNES: I swear to God, Steve if you don't quit laughing...

ROGERS: I love you.


BARNES: You… what? [Pause] Like a brother, right?

ROGERS: I love you, I’m in love with you, I’ve loved you since we were fifteen.

BARNES [with sarcasm]: Right.

ROGERS: No, it's true, I— Remember that time I got pneumonia? Over the winter?

BARNES: Yeah. We thought you were gonna die.

ROGERS: You stayed with me, didn't sleep for three days... even my ma couldn't bear it, she kept going in and out. You were with me the whole time, though, I still remember... you never left me once.

BARNES: So that's when...

ROGERS: That’s when I knew I was never getting over your dumb a*s.

BARNES: [Pause] You love me.

ROGERS: Get over here.






BARNES: [Pulls away, smiling] So not... not like a brother, then.

ROGERS: [Laughing] Nope.

BARNES: Good, because I’m pretty sure the things I wanna do with you would be illegal if you were my brother.

ROGERS: I dunno, they’re pretty liberal now.

BARNES: I heard. Gays can get married ’n everything…

ROGERS: Would that be… Is that something you’d want to…

BARNES: How ‘bout you kiss me again first, you big sap?







INTERVIEWER: [Clears throat] Ah, gentlemen, I hate to interrupt, but... you realize this is— You know we're broadcasting live?

ROGERS: Oh. Sh*t.

BARNES: Who gives a crap. Let 'em all see.

INTERVIEWER: As long as you're— Um. Is someone throwing up?

ROGERS: No. [Pause] That's just, uh. The pipes.

BARNES: [Scowls] No. Your dumb bird is making puke noises.

ROGERS: I know, I was trying to be— [Laughs]. Never mind. Shut it, Wilson.
