so after three years of really smart commenters on Reddit and random Yahoo articles complaining about the princesses’ eyes being closed, I decided to take the advice to heart and update the series!
I’ll start rolling out the finished pieces over the next couple of weeks, but I think it’s clearly for the best.
NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT A GOD DAMN RELATIONSHIP AND LOSING WEIGHT AND BEING BEAUTIFUL FOR GODS SAKE GO OUTSIDE AND ROB A STORE AND FEEL ALIVE AS YOU RUN AWAY FROM SECURITY

That’s a sentence right there

You can rearrange them in any order and it’ll be a sentence

I feel like the motto of 2013 was “wait what”
Can we all take a minute to hyperventilate over the fact that they put this signature move in the movie?
Yes we can.
This really gets my feels going. I just— Tony shoots at Steve without really talking about it first. They haven’t even known each other long. He shoots at him and Steve reflects it. Tony trusts Steve to do that, and to reflect it away from Tony, to use the blast to hit the enemies, to actually make this team thing work. Tony says he’s not a team player, but he is. He so totally is. He can’t even pretend he isn’t, especially when he does things like this.
Reblogging for the comment above ^
I’m slightly confused by why the move was necessary though
Tony was right there, he could have just as easily moved his arm to shoot the aliens as Steve moved his shield.
Did the shield power it up or something? Did it instill it with the power of JUSTICE?
It just seems unnecessary.
If I were going to be a typical tumblr user and put way too much thought into it, I’d say that Tony seems to generally use the hand beams while he’s stationary, from what I can remember. So maybe Tony needs to be braced while he uses the beams so he’s not knocked off-balance. And Cap’s shield to absorb vibrations and disperse them, so maybe it’s easier to achieve an arcing motion when by pivoting the beam off of the shield?
But I honestly do think it was just a tribute to a classic move : P
That could also work! I’m sure I’ve seen Tony fly while firing but maybe it uses different motions or whatever, but I can appreciate a tribute for a tribute. It looked cool at any rate.
If I remember correctly, the Vibranium in his shield (according to the first Captain America movie) is capable of taking any shock and redirecting it perhaps with a stronger force. A good example of this is when Thor strikes the shield with Mjolnir and it levels the forest around them. The redirection of the burst sent out a much stronger wave than what Thor was anticipating, which is why it knocked him back. The theory here then, might be Tony assuming the shield could make his blasts stronger, which could explain why he uses it, especially if it is able to blast several enemies out of the way in one go instead of having to scan for enemies and shoot them one at a time.
my coworker just told me about a kid he knew in second grade that was really allergic to peanuts but one day during lunch he said that he couldn’t take it anymore and wanted to know what reeses taste like so he pulled out his epipen, ate the reese cup then stabbed himself with the epipen and told the teacher to call the hospital and that kid is the most hardcore kid I’ve ever heard of I wanna be his friend
