I keep seeing this and it irks me every time. Yes, Steve isn’t treating him like a monster, but he’s going about it all wrong. He’s ignoring the monster, which is NOT (NOT NOT NOT NOT) how you deal with them. Steve is outright saying “I don’t care about your big green problem.” Tony said “I like you AND your big green problem.” See the difference? You can’t just ignore an entire aspect of a person because it suits you. Certainly having everyone worried about the Hulk side of things gets a little irritating, but having someone ignore it’s existence entirely? That’s not the way to do it.
And I could go into all of the real-life mental-illness implications of this, but I won’t, because I doubt any of you want to read that anyway.
And if you noticed, Bruce was only ever comfortable around Tony, because Tony accepted him in his entirety, science genius and green monster and all. He didn’t like being around the others - including Steve - because of they way they sectioned him, worried about the Hulk or dismissing it entirely.
(so I’ll go into the mental illness implications in the tags) Because if you took the Hulk as a metaphor for mental illness depression anxiety schizophrenia disassociative bpd so on so forth You can’t just ignore the illness and you sure as hell don’t tell the person I’m going to completely ignore the fact that you’re a bit messed up in the head because I don’t want to deal with the implications of it because that only makes them feel worse makes them feel like they’re less than because someone feels the need to partition off that entire critical aspect of them just to treat them like a human and treating them like they are their disorder is shit too but after a while you get used to that whih sucks but happens.Which is why Tony did the RIGHT thing and Steve did the WRONG thingBecause Tony recognized the issue recognized the disorder and didn’t just say you’re ok in spite of it but you’re okay because of it. Which is very verydifferent. ok i’ll shut up now
I think the best way to bring Coulson back would be for Coulson to wake up in a hospital room after recovering from his stab wound to see Captain America by his bedside. Captain America smiles and jokes, “I watched you while you were sleeping.” That would be perfect.
Went to see The Avengers again today.
Definitely worth the second trip. But now I’m back in my dorm and the guys and the boy are back in Oak Park and I’m alone and lonely and shmoopy and I want to cuddlefuck. And I still have to unpack but I have so much shit and ugh.
- Tony: What's the bow-and-arrow guy's name again?
- Me: That's Hawkeye.
- Tony: Right. And Scarlett Johansson's character?
- Me: Black Widow. She's a spy.
- Tony: And they don't have superpowers?
- Me: Well no, but they're still badass.
- Tony: And Thor and the bad guy are brothers?
- Me: Adopted, and that's Loki.
- Tony: Right, adopted. Nordic.
- Tony: Funny, if I was asking you questions about a chick flick you probably couldn't answer any of them.
By the way you all SERIOUSLY need to watch this movie it is absolutely perfect in every way. Even the 3D was worth paying extra for. Even the PREVIEWS were amazing. Also the Hulk had my favourite line in the entire film which surprised me. And I can’t believe it took me this long to realize that the boy and Iron Man have the same name, so now anytime something bad happens to Tony Stark I get even more upset than I already would’ve since Iron Man is one of if not my favourite Marvel character.
