Let’s be honest everyone would rather watch a Black Widow movie than antman
6 months in jail for being a responsible father.

there’s not a reason in the world i could ever come up with to use this product

I could write ESSAYS about the different moral systems of Steve, Carol, and Tony. Steve the deontologist, Tony the Utilitarian, Carol the Virtue Ethicist (evidenced ESPECIALLY WELL now that she has lost her memories, and can only react morally out of habit/instinct).
Carol is ready to sacrifice herself, and her willing comrade-in-arms, to save everyone else.
Tony is willing to put anything that matters to him, everything that matters to him, aside to save everyone else.
And Steve, Steve is not willing to let anybody lay someone else down on the line. Not for the “greater good.”
Carol says “this is war” and Steve says “death and horror and shame will follow.”
Tony says “everything is secondary to the cause” and Steve says “we can do this without sacrificing who we’re supposed to be.”
But what I love in these three different moments are how the three of them are so very much the same.
Steve is ALWAYS willing to sacrifice HIMSELF for the cause. And Carol and Tony? They’ve watched him. They’ve learned from him. And they’re willing to sacrifice themselves without a thought, without even blinking, the exact same way Steve always is and does. Hank asks Tony who made up these rules, Clint balks at the scale of the sacrifice.
Steve made up the rules, and when it’s soldiers, heroes, people who signed up for this, Steve is not unwilling to respect that sacrifice.
Carol and Tony have so much of Steve’s moral code reflected in their actions, which is why they are leaders in their own right.
But they all three of them diverge on their ultimate moral stance, which is also why they’re all leaders in their own right. All of their moral views are important. All of them tell an important ethical story.
Just…… Triumvirate. These three are my fucking triumvirate of my heart and soul and mind right now, ugh.
(Heh, you can even map Plato’s soul onto this if you wanna get super fancy: Steve->Man, Carol->Lion, Tony->Appetite)
don’t come for my girl
Signal boost for GamePhobias, a wiki-style website dedicated to categorizing games based on content and trigger warnings. Users can either view content warning categories to find games that do and don’t contain the triggering content, or search for specific games to see exactly what content warnings are attached to that title (as well as brief, almost exclusively non-graphic descriptions as to specific scenes/levels containing that content).
It’s a very, very new wiki (IIRC it launched late August) and so its offerings are very paltry right now, and I would seriously encourage anyone with experience with games, wikis, and/or both to contribute however they can.
