as irritating as I find the “prudish old timey idiot” fanon interpretation of Steve Rogers, nothing will beat my disdain for unnecessarily angry/violent Steve Rogers. For racist/xenophobic/reminiscent-of-a-staunch-Republican-even-though-that-makes-zero-sense Steve Rogers
because that isn’t even a strict fanon thing. That’s just the Ultimates version of Steve. The “do you think this A on my head stands for France” version of Steve that 30 year old nerds who like “gritty” comics think is super cool.
and I LOVED Cap 2 for placing Steve firmly in opposition to that idea, that we didn’t have some bullshit violent cynical superhero movie like The Dark Knight made popular. Steve Rogers isn’t even a favorite of mine in the comics, but MCU Steve being earnest and heartfelt (and sarcastic and always on the ball and very aware that beaurocratic bullshit doesn’t ever change much) is so absolutely right to me.
less superhero movies about shitty obsessive grimdark crybabies and more superhero movies about good people pls
I was so excited for Ultimates and was enjoying it despite early problems but then there was that fucking line - in a huge ass splash page of him sayin it no less - and my desire to read a single panel more just dropped to fuckin zero
Apparently the whole ‘Ultimates being a right-wing wet dream’ thing was subversive satire - according to Millar - but if so…man it sure wasn’t marketed or perceived like that, esp by a lot of ppl that bought it.
