Really does seem like they’re running down that road already.One wonders if Not!Cap is one of those people who is perfectly nice and 'good' in public while being a complete monster in private; a sociopath who knows exactly what the public wants in a 'Captain America' and can emulate that expression without actually embodying any of those virtues.
I can see why they have have thought the optics of an East Asian country where everyone is a hardcore criminal may not be great, but just make up a different fake place. Madripoor's an interesting city and "vaguely disguised Atlanta" wasn't what I wanted at all, and did the Asian erasure thing again.I spent a LOT of my attention and energy this entire episode looking intensely throughout the crowds trying to spot anyone even vaguely Indonesian looking, and came up almost completely empty except for one goon who you see half of his face for a split second during the cargo container fight. I'd be disappointed if it weren't so utterly predictable coming from Marvel/Disney. They kinda can't help themselves! I try to bring this up as a point of emphasis from time to time where applicable, but don't want to sound like a broken record. This is just how it is for Asians in this country, we are invisible.
Yeah that echoes all my sentimentsI can see why they have have thought the optics of an East Asian country where everyone is a hardcore criminal may not be great, but just make up a different fake place. Madripoor's an interesting city and "vaguely disguised Atlanta" wasn't what I wanted at all, and did the Asian erasure thing again.
I'm here for this.
I do wonder how Loki having the Tesseract is supposed to "break reality," though. This isn't like the Avengers plucking it out of the timeline entirely, which is what the Ancient One was warning Bruce about. It's still in the alt-2012 timeline, just in a different place. Shouldn't be a problem.
This is true, but given that we barely know anything about his career prior to CA:TWS apart from flashbacks here and there, I think it's reasonable for him to have been the Winter Soldier both before and after receiving some of the serum stolen from Howard.I think the other Winter Soldiers were made with the serum that Bucky took after killing Howard. He was already The Winter Soldier at that point.
