I read you need a Thing. I can TOTALLY Thing.
I thinged for Place and Other Location, and I have additional experience in Activities, Doing, and Stuff.
Please look at my list of Thinging history and call me if you want to chat about how I can Thing and Stuff for you.
Mmmm the origins of these things are a mystery. :D
It’s not canon. In the comics, Steve has never mentioned his denomination, at least that I’m aware of, though he’s very devout in Ults (he and Jan have a fight about him going to church every week, oh my god Steve).
It’s generally accepted that his parents or grandparents were Irish immigrants, though I’m not sure where specifically that comes from — at any rate it was more or less confirmed recently in flashbacks to his childhood (which you should take with a grain of salt because those also retrofit some kind of important elements of his backstory, GDI Remender). Irish Immigrant for most people is shorthand for Irish Catholic, and Steve does seem to carry some rather Catholic-flavoured guilt around with him.
That said, in the films he’s canonically Protestant — it’s printed on his dog tags (though this is a minor enough detail it may be retconned in future). In 616 he came very close to converting to Judaism when he and Bernie were together, so I’m not sure how much of a damn he gives for religion in general. I mean I’m sure he considers it his duty to protect the right to practice one’s religion without persecution, but he doesn’t seem to be particularly fired up over any given faith. (It’s one reason that “There’s only one god, ma’am” line in Avengers still bothers me.)
I think there is a certain urge to make Steve Catholic because whatever the reality of the situation, Catholicism is seen in America as being a very historically rooted faith, one that has a certain contact with the past that some other denominations lack. Whether this is true or not, it fits nicely into the narrative of a man whose roots are in the past regardless of his present situation, especially since then you get to (as I did) write Steve being confused and wary about all the changes instituted by Vatican II.
all of these but also i like steve as catholic because i’m catholic,
and catholics now don’t have the image that they used to, because it’s gotten so deeply rooted in BS politics that are bs and the exact opposite of everything the church should stand for
(this is not to say that the church historically has not been political, the catholic church has always been political and stupid about it)
but its nice to see a catholic who is basically just like…chill.
not summoning the devil, not decrying any group of people. just using religion as a lightpost by which to be a good person
I don’t hate anyone who eats meat or I’d hate tigers and tribes on the fringe of civilization. I do not hate those who partake in the act of flesh consumption. I have disdain for people who CAN be vegan and still choose not to be; people who consciously select cruelty over compassion.
Expensive “vegan products” like grains, rice, beans, vegetables and fruits? Where I am from beef, chips, fast food and the other junk you consume is a lot more expensive at a much more reduced nutritional value. Cost per calorie I am positive I spend four times less than you do and am ten times more healthy for it.
It’s not about finding a “nicer” way to enslave and kill, it’s about the abolition of animals used for entertainment, labor and sacrifice for personal pleasure.
So far my methods have changed the lives of quite a few and I will continue to advocate as long as I live. If you don’t like it, go read about bacon or do some self discovery of why you support animal cruelty because you were “raised to think its ok” or “that’s just how it is” and why those excuses are so flimsy.
you don’t even know what you are talking about
|Chris Hewitt:||Another core relationship in the film is Captain America and the Falcon.|
|Helen O'Hara:||Do you know what, I may have said this in the main podcast but honestly every beat of their relationship is exactly like a romance. Seriously. They got to ‘meet cute’ running along, then they bond over some spurious shared history, and then it’s all like ‘Oh I’m in real trouble & I just turned up at your door because you’re the one person I could think to go to for help”. And he’s all like “Sure use my shower.” I mean, come on people! And I think it works well using that kind of shorthand to create a kind of a friendship quite quickly. But honestly they are the ‘couple’ in the film.|
|Chris:||It’s interesting though, he spends the entire movie turning down exhortations from Natasha to ask women out, the ENTIRE movie.|
|Helen:||Hey it would be a great political statement if Captain America’s gay.|
|Chris:||“What about such-and-such from statistics?” “No, I’m not interested.” “What about such-and-such? What about your next door neighbour who’s really really hot?”|
|Ali Plumb:||“What about this one-armed cyborg man who you have history with..?”|
|Chris:||“…with the dreamy eyes and long hair.”|
|Helen:||He was looking dreamy it has to be said.|
You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.
We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”
I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”
He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.
You guys have all heard of Lumberjanes by now, right?
I’m happy to say that my exclusive cover for Lumberjanes #1 is for sale at Challengers Comics in Chicago (my hometown!) coinciding with Noelle's signing there this past weekend. I think the whole Lumberjanes crew is ace and I'm excited to have contributed to such a girl-positive comics series, drawn and written by awesome ladies!
I’ve been watching a lot of River Monsters and I really liked the idea of setting the Lumberjanes off on a canoeing adventure with an unexpected catch. I’ve since been informed that the canoe I drew totally looks like a vagina. It was unintentional, but I’m more than ok with that! By ladies for ladies, amirite??
