"Outcasts, callused from being in exile for too long, learn to thrive on being the hated; the attention and infamy of our actions fuel us to become antiheroes. Too often do we forget: we risk self-destruction if we fail to follow what we know is right; our talents too often become misplaced, misdirected, misguided from what could have been something wonderful."
Mike Norton, Fighting For Redemption
Agent Grant ‘too cool for stairs' Ward
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.
it’s so easy to forget how garrett kind of had a team too
how he sold two members out under the alias of the clairvoyant
how another (trip’s so-called partner) was killed because of the clairvoyant
how trip was probably the only one left
but there was still probably a team
a team trying to find the clairvoyant, not knowing that he was with them the entire time
a team that probably lost hope at one time, but looked at each other and realized “we’re getting nowhere, but at least we’re nowhere together”
a team that tried to cheer each other up when things got hard
maybe not a found family, but a group of friends that cared about each other, not knowing that one of them didn’t care at all
and how do you think trip felt, as his team members were picked off one by one? and when the fact finally registers that his friend orchestrated his other friend’s deaths?
Okay no. This is terrible. Guys. I really, REALLY need you to raise some awareness on the riots in Scotland. Violence has broken out. Videos have come out of voters kicking and attacking each other. There’s alleged (I use the word alleged as I am not sure) stabbings and an attack with the weapon being the hammer.
Glasgow City Centre is absolutely rife with violence. Scotland did not vote for violence, riots and absolute shameful acts of hatred in this country. People are being attacked, it’s dangerous and the fact that this isn’t being broadcasted whatsoever baffles me. Not really actually, due to a bias.
Just, please. Raise awareness. Reblog this. Those in Scotland, stay safe. As much as it is ridiculous to say, yes badges, stickers? Take them off! Saltires, don’t make them visible. Do not engage with any rioters. Just please be safe!
This is only one picture of what’s happening. I won’t even link the videos. It’s disgusting.
