In issue 185 of Captain America Red Skull kidnaps Gabe and Peggy and subjects them to severe torture because of their relationship.
In a response to a letter printed in issue 190, the editor explained why they included that storyline and it’s kinda cool.
Gabe/Peggy is so so important and ngl, if we don’t get them together at some point in Agent Carter, it’s just going to be such a disappointment for me.
Wow, this is absolutely awesome. I am not that familiar with the Cap comics from before the movies - I was an avid comic reader in the 90s, but it was 99% the X-titles.
When they had the line in TWS that Peggy married someone that Steve rescued from the Hydra facility, I was going to put money on it being DumDum Dugan because he was the most conventional character and I know the Hollywood machine - kind of eye-rolling all the while.
But being Gabe? That’s awesome. I REALLY hope that this gets worked into the Peggy Carter series.
And I LOVE Marvel’s response here - even back then - likening their bigoted readers to Red Skull’s own complaints. Here’s hoping they have the balls to be that progressive now, decades later with unconventional pairings.
This would mean that Antoine Triplett is Peggy’s grandson, too. Now I need the fic where he and Steve meet, and he fills Steve in on all the years of growing up with Grandpa Gabe and Grandma Peggy. Right now.
Acting takes you out of your comfort zone. It can be hard but if you love doing it, you do it. There was a time I wanted to be an astronaut but now, well…I don’t think I’m going into space anytime soon.
Interviewer: Did you do a lot of your own stunts?
Anthony Mackie: I did a bunch of the stuff leading up to the stunts. I tried to do one stunt and I ran into a parked car, face-first.
Interviewer: The directors were telling me— I asked if there were any close calls and that was the one situation they brought up!
AM: [Laughs] No, but they tricked me. First of all, no one— if I tell you to fly, you’re not going to know how to fly ‘cause as humans, we don’t fly. So they tell me they’re going to raise me up ten feet and let me go. I swing in, land on my feet, and walk and talk…. so they pulled me up ten feet and said ‘how do you feel?’ and I said ‘I feel good!’ But I keep going up! They pull me up forty feet off the ground and I’m like ‘THIS DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT!’ [Laughs] And they let me go. And I’m coming down at like….mach 2, right? And I look at Chris [Evans]’s face and he goes… “You’re going to die.”"
Something about a very important post about what Steve Rogers would look like first thing in the morning, with sunglasses and bedhead. Oh, and a bicep tattoo peaking out. Cause even Captain America had some badass secrets.
The moment that you realize Agent 13’s cover was not an accident. Stay classy, S.H.I.E.L.D. :/
THAT’S JUST MEAN.
OH MY GOD DO YOU KNOW WHAT MAKES THIS EVEN WORSE???
Steve’s reaction to Kate/Sharon’s statement is completely a skinny!Steve reaction covered with humor. His gut instinct is “shit, I gotta stay away bc it is highly probable I will get sick and die” quickly followed by “no I can’t get sick anymore better smile like it’s a joke.” So he kind of half-laughs and says, “I’ll keep my distance then.”
And he can pass it off, and he can maybe—-ooOHHHH FUCK I JUST REALIZED.
LATER ON STEVE’S FLASHBACK IS ABOUT HIS MOTHER’S FUNERAL. I am sure there are/were many, many, many moments in the course of Steve’s life in which Bucky said things like, “I’m with you to the end of the line” (the fact that he uses it in that scene and that Steve uses it in the fight with Bucky at the end suggests that phrase was something they said to each other more than once), but the one that we see IS HIS MOTHER’S DEATH. THIS IS PROBABLY BECAUSE OF THAT TRIGGERING COMMENT. STEVE HAS PROBABLY BEEN SADLY THINKING ABOUT HIS MOM AND THEN BUCKY SHOWS UP AND OHHH MYYY GODDD.
HEY HO HOW ABOUT NO?
OH MY GOD NO
SHIELD NO WHY
"When I was a kid, I believed you would become a mermaid when you went in the water to swim".
I really loved the little mermaid as a kid growing up so I had the warped perception you became a mermaid when you entered the water ahaha. This is me learning to swim with my cousin! This piece is for a gallery show at work.

"The trick is growing up without growing old."
This makes a surprising amount of sense.
