"The moon landing?" Sam asks, frowning. "How long you been in the future, you haven’t seen the moon landing yet?"
"Well, I saw it," Steve says, between bites, "and it was amazing! But then a guy at the park told me that it was actually faked, so I wrote it down so I could go look into it."
"Okay, first of all, don’t take historical information from guys you meet in the park, what’s wrong with you?"
"I met you in a park," Steve replies mildly.

this is a worryingly accurate summary of my personality
SPIDERS. Spiders are a good theme for a hero. Also he’s cute and fallible.
The Spiderman movies so far have not been as good as the Disney Marvel movies. Also, he is not spidery enough. He needs more legs. And eyes.
um is this a bad time to admit i’ve never actually read a Spiderman comic book? I read Secret Wars, he was in that.
I’m partial to this one, even if that’s not Peter Parker.
Hmm … Peter/Harry Osborne?
Um … let’s see … Peter is always careful to rescue spiders out of the shower.
I really didn’t think the Amazing Spider-Man movie was that good.
I wish there was a version of Spider-Man with more spidery traits.
Hmmmm I can’t think of any.
SPIDERMAN, SPIDERMAN, DOES WHATEVER A SPIDER
He’s awful and gross and has a creepy crush on his archenemy. That last one probably has a lot to do with it.
He’s a gross Nazi, which is reason enough to hate him. He’s also a pretty simple villain, and I don’t think his motivations are that realistic.
I’ve never played a video game with him in it, but my favorite scene is probably the one in Captain America issue two-ninety-something where he takes Cap back into his smoky replica club and tells him his backstory.
"It was, no doubt, the love all victimizers have for their victims. For the man of hate must have an object to focus that hate upon. Without it, he is lost to madness." Firstly because it’s pretty damn slashy (you can’t tell me this doesn’t sound like it applies to Captain America), and secondly because it displays, in a few short sentences, a number of the things that are horribly wrong with Skull’s worldview. The fact that he’s automatically sympathizing with the abuser, the fact that this is what he thinks love is, the general gross prejudice (I snipped the worst out, you did not need to see that) … something is very wrong there.
I liked his outfit in the Captain America movie best, I think - but left to my own devices I tend to depict him just wearing long, fancy black coats, not actually any uniform. His face is the recognizable part; he doesn’t really need a green jumpsuit with a huge swastika on it to tell you who he is
im gross im gross I have way too many feels about Skull and his creepy obsession with his nemesis.
Does Skull&Sin count? She’s the only person he’s ever felt unable to kill. I mean he still treats her like shit because he is the worst, but Skull is the kind of villain where not quite brutally murdering his own infant daughter is kind of impressive.
On some level, Skull genuinely doesn’t understand the difference between love and hate. He gets that there’s supposed to be a difference, and he thinks of himself as being entirely devoted to the latter, but his empathy and capability to understand people is so stunted that he doesn’t understand that people don’t generally beat the people they love, or that people don’t generally rely on the people they hate to give their lives meaning. He thinks Captain America is the living embodiment of Good, the ultimate light to his darkness … and he still just assumes that Cap probably hits his friends/girlfriends when Skull isn’t looking, because he thinks that’s how people work.
The fact that I like this dirtbag at all? The fact that I ship him with other characters?
I want Magneto to beat the shit out of him in Mags’ ongoing. Oh, I also want there to be more Cap/Skull slash because yes.
I’m always kind of perpetually terrified that they’re going to have him rape Sin. I dislike it enough whenever the writers portray him as a rapist, not because it’s at all OOC but because I feel like it’s kind of a cheap way to display a character as being evil. Come up with something better, you’re a comic book writer.
The way he treats Sin is awful. It doesn’t need to be sexual to be awful, but I do noooot trust comic book writers not to go down that creepy, creepy route.
gross, racist, pathetic, creepy, and evil
I just call him Skull most of the time. He has too many names to add more.
