This woman desperately needs a name. Spanish names… scroll scroll scroll… Marisol, meaning “rebellious sun”. That’s fairly common but also super appropriate. I’m using it.

She looks to be, let’s say eighty years old.

This is 2013. Eighty years ago was 1933.

When World War II kicked off Marisol would have been six years old. Eight by the time Captain America showed up. When Cap vanished she’d have been twelve or so.

I think she’s lived in New York for a long time, but not that long. A lot of the Spanish-speaking world wasn’t involved in WWII- the closest I can think of is Spain itself. So maybe she moved from there at some point. Surname… lessee… aha. Abravanel. Spanish-Jewish name meaning “little Abraham”, with Abraham as a personal name meaning “father of a multitude.” That works nicely.

The formation of the Avengers comes… after that. When exactly depends on the Marvel timeline and its connection to the one with days and weeks and months and years, which we all know is a tenuous and frayed thing. But thanks to the stalwart anchor of Captain America and World War II, we can say with certainty that she lived through all of it. The hero-on-hero battles of the early days, with the Hulk and the Space Phantom. The return of Captain America. The debut of Spider-Man, as a wrestler and then as a hero. The day the Avengers quit and Captain America recruited three former villains to take their place. The Fantastic Four. The miniature sun over Avengers Mansion. The Kree-Skrull War. The day the heroes vanished, and the debut of the Thunderbolts. (She thought she remembered hearing the name Citizen V, on the radio broadcasts during the war, but she was so young then, and she can’t be sure anymore.) The Heroes’ Return. The madness of the Scarlet Witch and the death of the Vision and Jack of Hearts. The rise of Norman Osborn as the Iron Patriot. The day the world nearly burned from the madness of Otto Octavius.

Mostly Marisol heard these things on the radio, the TV, the Internet. (When she moved to the city she was not yet thirty, alone and seeking her fortune. She learned English from night classes and worked during the day. There was a handsome man three seats over who sometimes asked to study with her. Eventually she said yes. They were married within two years. These are the important things.)

Sometimes she was there. (Everyone knows where they were the day the sky caught fire with Galactus’s presence. She was at the corner of 44th and 9th Avenue, on her way to her favorite deli for an early lunch. The deli has long since been bought out- it’s a bar and grill now, and she never goes there anyway.)

She saw Spider-Man confront the Green Goblin on the Queensboro Bridge. (By then she had a daughter of her own- little Lucia- about the same age as the Stacy girl, but still so little in her mother’s eyes. After what she saw that day she ran home and called her and told her not to watch the news.)

She dreamed impossible dreams the night Doctor Strange fought off the unspeakable designs of the Bend Sinister.

She was watching the news the day Captain America was shot.

She didn’t join the fight the day the Skrulls came- Lucia and her husband wouldn’t let her- but they all gathered together in her apartment because it had the strongest walls and the fewest entry points, and when everything was back to normal she had a new mailman and no one would talk about why.

She saw the lights in the sky from the battle in space the day the Human Torch returned.

And of course there were three days- three amazing, spectacular days- when she and so many others could not only move like they used to, but walk on walls and lift weights that should have been impossible. Her grandson Humberto still has the “compass power” granted by the Horizon Labs vaccine. Sometimes his father makes a game out of it, taking him to Central Park and spinning him around before asking which way is north.

Proxima Midnight doesn’t speak English. We read her dialogue in English because it’s our first language.

Marisol Velasquez (nee Abravanel) hears her first language, and she hears words and a tone she remembers from the Second World War. She’s not a child anymore- she’s lived her life and lived it well. Somewhere her husband is waiting for her, and if this is the day she goes to meet him, she’s ready. But there are still things to do here.

She doesn’t declare protection for herself. She calls back the way her father did, not at first when they thought the war wouldn’t touch them, but later, when they thought it might.

These monsters might get her. But they won’t get past her.

And when the heroes of New York have fallen, she knows the words that make them rise.

This was a beautiful thing to read after a hard day’s work. Thank you.

I do have plans to bring her back.

That’s some good headcanon.

I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'

Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.

and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left

and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off

Also, the dude behind the counter just nonchalantly making shawarma for the goddamn Avengers like they come in every day.

This interview almost killed.  The end was just chaotic.

Mark was pressing all the buttons, then Chris joined in, then Tom.  Tom hi-jacked the joystick and almost broke it at some point.  I just couldn’t breathe.

LOOKIE LOOKIE

Grown men.

This will always be one of my favorite interviews of all time. It was so shockingly unprofessional from the host, and these three not only handled it beautifully but stayed funny and charming. Love it.

Oh god … Stefan Raab … as a German, I am CRINGING LIKE FUCK before I’ve even SEEN it … *hides in corner and cries*

I totally share that feeling… cringeworthy indeed…

If in doubt and if the interviewer is a douchebag, just create chaos.

True friend.

Fun fact: The next panel is Tony in his armor answering a call from Pepper. “Apparently Captain America wants to stomp on me.”

Pepper’s reply: “In his defense, he HAS met you.”

Just going on a Loki reblogging spree. Don’t mind me.

HEY GAIS! remember Dettsu’s Single Ladies parody for Captain America?

She allowed me to do it. With her permission, I tweaked her lyrics a little bit and she officially called it a collab XD

Single Heroes (Take It Back from Him)
based on Beyonce’s Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)
(Started by izzytheeverythingflagdemonessforevahyoung-nesseheheheh-lokiddoctordonna10what-theface; Completed and fully written by Dettsu; Sang [and tweaked a bit] by me)
Original Lyric Post: [x]

All the single heroes, all the single heroes
All the single heroes, all the single heroes
All the single heroes, all the single heroes
All the single heroes

Now put your shield up!

Up in New York
Just thawed out
Doin’ an Avenger’s thing

They talked me up
Loki sucks
And Coulson is obsessed with me

He up on me, he up on me
Don’t pay him any attention
I’m with Tony Stark, Thor, and Hulk
Out doing this avenging biz

If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
He’ll be mad and summon his Chitauri army then
But if he took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh

If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
He’ll be mad and summon his Chitauri army then
But if he took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him

I got Barton in the sky
Romanov the spy
Hulk smashing, ripping jets in the air

Stark flies by
I’m on stand by
Thor brings his hammer and his glorious hair

We’re on a mission, did I mention
Loki’s getting all the attention
But we gotta do this task
Shawarmas for the last
So Hulk, beat the crap outta him

If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
He’ll be mad and summon his Chitauri army then
But if he took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh

If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
Close the portal, that he opened, with his scepter
Thor will take him back to Asgard as a prisoner

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh

We won’t treat him to the things of this world
Justice has been served
Freedom’s what I prefer, what I deserve

Here’s the man that breaks it, then takes it
So we deliver him to his destiny, to the 9 realms and beyond
Oh, Laufeyson

Now you’re really done
In the void, you’ll be alone
And like a ghost, you’ll be gone

All the single heroes, all the single heroes
All the single heroes, all the single heroes
All the single heroes, all the single heroes
All the single heroes

Now put your shield up!

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh

If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
If Loki took it, then we’ll go and take it back from him
Close the portal, that he opened, with his scepter,
Thor will take him back to Asgard as a prisoner

Oh oh oh

Loki’s gone now so we can do the all sh.. we like
Stop by Peggy in her retirement home some day
Clint and Nat are going out and Coulson’s still alive
Bruce and Tony’s doing science, Fury’s on vacay

Oh oh oh
