Can you recommend some quality Falcon stories? I've been trying to learn more about him but I can't find a whole lot online.
I’m sorry this took so long! Here’s a couple great Falcon stories:
Captain America & The Falcon - this is MY FAVORITE Sam Wilson issue of all time. It’s a one-shot, and it’s a great introduction to Sam’s backstory and his working relationship with BuckyCap. The art is adorable, it shows you a great view of Sam’s sense of humor, and it’s just charming. (Side note - the series Captain America & The Falcon is awful. It’s full of nasty fanboy musclebound art and original recipe Marvel racism. Avoid that one like the plague.)
Falcon - another mini by Jim Owlsey, this one’s fun but does a lot of weirdness with Sam’s canon (mostly asserting that he’s a mutant, which is later retconned and also hah) but it’s a fun read and Sam’s only solo title. The tpb also includes some older Cap issues that give you more of Sam’s backstory, including Captain America #117, the issue where Sam is originally introduced.
Captain America Volume 5 - Sam plays a pretty significant part in this volume, specifically after Steve’s death (after issue #25). He also plays a pretty significant part in the latter portion of the volume, after it returns to original numbering (beginning in issue #600). What you get from Volume 5 Sam is how fierce of a friend he is, and how powerful of a hero he is. Also, SAM AND SHARON ARE VERY GOOD FRIENDS I WON’T LET THAT GO.
Mighty Avengers - Al Ewing has done the impossible (aka the not-difficult but somehow impossible for most) and written a fascinating, human story about Sam on a street-level team, doing what he does best (and outside the Cap family bubble). Bonus (!!!) Mighty Avengers is rebooting in November as Captain America and the Mighty Avengers, featuring SamCap, so head over and pre-order your copy for sure, it’ll be a good jumping-on point.
There’s more Sam than this, for sure, heading further back in the Cap and Avengers canons, but these are good places to start. Good luck! I hope you fall in love with Sam Wilson like I have.
"IRON WOMAN." Yeesssssss >:D I do kinda wish comics would get away with this mindset where there has t be a fight every issue. Like for me character interactions and tense conversations and word battles and stealthy deals and backstabbings are so much more interesting than poor Times Square getting messed up YET AGAIN
Same, I don’t mind a little drama, but when the HEROES are fighting OTHER HEROES ON THE SAME DAMN TEAM IN EVERY DAMN ISSUE. That’s when I want to drop everything. Also character death every 5 fucking seconds, it’s not interesting, it’s annoying.
It makes me bored as fuck with comics, I’m very selective on what I pick up now if anything at all. I like to keep updated but I find myself wanting to punch a wall after seeing the bs they pull.
Just sticking with Marvel Adventures:Avengers tbqh
idk man his videos still make me laugh a lot and I end up rewatching them over and over again
SAME LIKE at first I was like ‘man i dont care’ when this whole shit storm started but it’s gotten gradually worse, and I wanted to look in the tags to see fans talk about fandom shit and now its trashed with “JON IS A NECKBEARD CIS WHITE MAN!1111 IF U LIEK HIM UR TRASH”
okay 1) i need a pepper potts comic, idk if i'd want her in a suit fighting crime or her running stark international and dealing with a corporate side of a superhero world b/c that'd be hella interesting too and i always wonder about that???? 2) if she WERE to be in an iron man suit fighting crime idk if i'd want her to be called "Iron man" or "Iron Woman" b/c i feel like there're weird implications to both names, like, she's not a MAN? but is it like captain marvel where the name's a title? GAH
That would be interesting, especially her dealing with the corporate and political side (KINDA WANT THIS NOW). Though I still want her being a bad ass crime fighting leader who gets handsy with Maria Hill
Actually the title as Captain is universal, so Carol having that title is valid. Iron Woman works perfectly.
….Okay so l’ve been silent about the whole Jontron thing and just watching as people take what he says and twist it into something it’s not and I’m honest to god shocked.
He gives his opinion (a VALID opinion which people should think on and take into consideration) on the Anita video talking about women in gaming, he gets called sexist.
He apologizes on his podcast about the first debacle, people ignore it and don’t even mention it while still whining “IF HE JUST APOLOGIZES”.
He says Zoe Quinn is nothing to get angry over, people think he’s being a misogynist.
I mean REALLY? You all are just looking for ways to get offended now (as usual). And sending him death threats? That’ll fucking make you look like the oh so peace loving social justice warrior you pride yourself in being.
no but seriously can’t stevetony just have this one thing? like can people not come up with a new name for born-female tony? like they have to specifically take what little canon we have and shit directly on it? ok.
Your Natasha is utterly gorgeous. She does not have the beauty of a model, but comes off more as plain to me, which I think fits her perfectly and gives a bit of pain in the heart thinking that most would not see her as anything special and only be after her for money. She has a rather average and long face, and not many curves. To me, she is the best representation of fem!Tony I've ever seen. She is perfect. I think Steve would find her the most beautiful woman he's ever seen.
;A; omg thank you so much! i was very nervous that my interpretation of fem Tony will be a miss.. i mean, there are dozen version of her and ppl can draw her differently, but i’m glad you like my version!
and yes, your thoughts on her are correct. less curvy because i see MCU Tony’s body as less curvy too. he’s muscular but not really muscular (like Steve or Thor) so i guess it makes sense if i made his female counter part to be not too perfect :D
as for the long face, i didn’t mean to draw her that way lol i suck at drawing beautiful girls but in a way i intentionally made her to look child-like (is it showing…) and average. MCU Tony look really moderate compared to his fellow teammates imo (at least to Steve and Thor.. and Nat)
like steve is literally specifically angry at tony for the illuminati and it’s not because tony has done anything particularly more wrong- well, other than lying directly to steve’s face for like at least a year- but because, out of everyone, he cares most deeply for tony but at the same time trusts him the least. i’m not pulling that out of my ass, i’m pretty sure it was breevort who said that in an interview about this volume of the avengers maybe two months ago. steve’s rage is directed at tony because his betrayal cuts so much deeper for steve.
the tragedy of steve and tony’s relationship- whether you read it as subtextually romantic or strictly platonic- is that they love each other very deeply but they have no trust in each other left at all anymore so the force behind their emotions for one another has nowhere to go so it gets warped into this cycle of betrayal and hurt that they can’t get out of.
