why am i doing this?
for *fun*. obviously.
How were you introduced into the MCU fandom?
iron man, 2008, at a very tender age. the rest goes downhill from there.
What’s your favorite Marvel film?
the winter soldier. the love of my life and also the only thing the-brothers-who-don’t-deserve-any-award-whatsoever did right.
Top favorite Marvel character?
<– i rest my case.
actually no i don’t do you Know how much bucky was robbed the man has 47 lines total in the franchise and whose fault was it that he’s reduced to “pew pew pew punch” (despite being the winter soldier and being trained to fight hand to hand combat but no let’s forget that hahaha here give him a gun and make him a basic brainwashed assassin) and also just steve’s long lost friend like no he has one of the richest character arcs and wouldn’t even be in the mcu if it wasn’t for ed brubaker literally bringing his fanfiction to the comics like are you Kidding me steve isn’t bucky’s world he’s just a big part of it bucky has so much more he has an amazing relationship, a kid he adopted from another mission and a whole organization dedicated to helping people like this was all in the 2016-2018 arcs so how. dare. you. just call him a sidekick and honestly the russos lucked out with tws because ever since they!! have just CONTINUED TO MESS HIS STORY UP and i will die mad about it
If you were transported into the MCU and had to trade places with one of the superheroes, who would you choose?
ehhhhh wait i can’t use comics? dangit. uhm. probably skye johnson from aos (also she counts fite me)
What are some of your favorite quotes from the films?
“you’re repeating yourself– you’re repeating yourself”
“your mother’s name was sarah… you used to wear newspaper in your shoes”
“i’m, uh, gonna hit you in the head with a peanut butter sandwich”
“i am groot!” “NO“
“… and i have a bow and arrows, none of this makes sense.”
“you’re taking all the stupid with you”
“everyone went on a life changing trip with zuko, i want—” hold on that’s not marvel heh
Which crew would you want to be part of the most: Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Revengers?
the thunderbolts; all of these groups are chaotic and have too much drama to deal with.
Favorite and least favorite ship?
fave: scott x hope. healthy, based on partnership, a relationship of equals, they don’t just share love, they admire and respect each other and that plays well into everything they do. idk i just like the idea of a relationship being more than just pure romantic attraction, what’s the point of keeping it otherwise?
least fave: nat x bruce. NOT because it doesn’t work, but because the way they wrote it was terrible. if you *want* to write an out of canon ship, at least write it well add some character development, don’t play with your audience’s feelings, don’t reduce one person’s past to specifically prey on their gender (i’m looking at you, whedon– there are SO many worse things other than infertility and you KNOW nat is stronger than that) and don’t just grab the nearest guy available. shame. i could write something better and i am ace. this had potential and they Messed It Up.
Favorite and least favorite villain?
fave: you know what, i’m gonna say hydra as a whole, because i find it fascinating how easily their ideals, their people, and their poison is spread throughout the captain america films and the powerful analogy that has today. (what? i’m a nerd. get over it.)
least fave: the vulture and mysterio. ALSO not because they’re not evil enough, but i don’t think it’s a good idea to villainize working class people who have to resort to less than acceptable means to provide for themselves and their families. it just makes us sympathize with the elite and rich when they’ve done literally nothing to earn that love.
Unpopular MCU opinion?
sharon carter is *not* a bad character– her writing and everything about how marvel handled her was wrong. her arc is so detailed and amazing, her relationship with steve was really sweet and not just that, it made sense, and the mcu just ignored all of that and messed it all up. even with how her actor was treated, they just reduced sharon to this character that came out of nowhere. i hope tfatws gives her the proper development she deserves.
(hold on i just remembered that people ALSO do this for my girl captain marvel and gihukjgfhngieukjrhgniujfkn i’ma deal with you buffoons later)
What’s your favorite Stan Lee cameo scene?
*inhales* *exhales* *cries* mr. lee, sir, the world kinda needed you rn
Do you like Marvel?
it’s problematic and troublesome, but absolutely.
Thor: long hair or short hair?
thor: any hair (why is this a question)
What was the first Marvel movie you watched?
iron man 1, we go allll the way back.
Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield, or Tom Holland as a better Spider- Man (there is only one right answer)?
hah, you’re all WRONG, the best spiderman is john mulaney and i will say that to my gRaVe—
well. that was fun. thanks kenechi. 🙂
i think the thing with hyperfixation is that sometimes you move on from your interests, and the fierce passion that kept you awake for weeks eventually channels away to something else–
but everytime something comes or a reference is made, it comes back again, and that little rush of oh yes this shaped my childhood and helped me become the person i am now is always one little blip of good?
so yeah. i won’t be this calm when the black widow movie comes out, appreciate the somewhat coherent ramble you got today.
~he’s really good at that, jo~
