That is some talented posing, photographer. It’s awesome.
I actually loved this moment, because I didn’t see this as Steve being incompetent and completely unaware of what was going on. This, I felt, was Steve being extremely sassy. “It seems to run on some form of electricity,” he says, with a huff of a sigh and a smile. What he means is, “Of fucking course I don’t know what this shit means, I’ve never been exposed to this, are you serious right now” and that is not because he’s stupid or inept. Actually, Steve adapts very, very well and very quickly to new technology, evidenced in the Avengers with the ease and familiarity that he navigates his tablet with, but also in Captain America, where he takes everything Howard gives him (modified, highly advanced Hydra weapons) and uses them to full capacity.
It’s just that Steve’s never seen the inside of a control panel like this, so there’s no way in hell he’d know what to do with it, and he’s pointing that out to Tony with his dry sense of humor. And I think Tony gets it, because he doesn’t get angry or snark back at him; he returns with “Well, you’re not wrong” and a lopsided smile, which I read as his “duh, what was I thinking” moment.
I just have a lot of feelings about Steve and his sass and his dry sense of humor, and now I will crawl away to have feelings elsewhere.
Perfection. Especially because the way I saw it first, I swore it was Coulson texting Bruce, and even if it’s Bruce texting Coulson (as I am sure is the intent), STILL AMAZING.
I was gonna just cap Carol calling out Tony on his idea that he manages his own time (as fucking if), but I really like this page all over because of Tony’s huge shoulders and tiny forearms and Carol’s huge, silky hair and Chewie being a big old puff ball, so you get the whole thing.
I was originally gonna just cap the panels about Carol calling out Tony on how he does not have time management but has Pepper to manage him, but I really like the art on this page, especially the way Tony’s built and Carol’s awesome hair, so you get the whole thing.
I know the first two panels have been going around and been amazing, but I would like to point out that When Tony starts dropping trou, it’s not because he thinks he lost the bet. I had been assuming the bet loss had been discussed before this page. Knowing it wasn’t, and he’s just dropping trou to drop trou makes this whole page doubly hilarious.
I was on Tony’s side until a couple of weeks ago until I had kale on pizza. Still won’t drink it, but it’s pretty good as a topping.
Tony, you’re supposed to get the pinky swear BEFORE you reveal state secrets.
Pete, there are cosmic-level baddies going on. Maybe pay attention.
