Once upon a time, there came a day, a day unlike any other… when Earth’s mightiest heroes found themselves united against a common threat… to fight the foes no single superhero could withstand… on that day, The Avengers were born.
You know what crossover I want more than anything right now? I want a crossover where a young Steve Rogers takes a trip to Atlantic City and meets Richard Harrow by the sea, and Steve isn’t afraid, just curious about the bundle Richard still carries everywhere, and Richard remembers a conversation that started like this, so he shows Steve the rifle and Steve is awed by a real soldier and also terribly, gravely impressed by the implications of what being a soldier means and of course this is the opposite of Richard’s intentions. And yet in Steve’s sincere, earnest adoration and sunny blonde hair he sees Jimmy as maybe he once was, before they were both lost.
Ninety-some years later, Steve meets another Tin Woodsman searching for his heart.
(Said crossover would be scored to this song. Because yes I do enjoy sobbing my eyes out.)
