movie // avengers // still believe

(no subject)

So a fic-related question I've been mulling over for a couple of days now... I have a partial answer, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

What is Steve's Kryptonite? And by that I mean, you've got Captain America coming at you like a charging rhino; other than punching back (which, let's face it, is not going to go great for a lot of people), how do you stop him or stall him or contain him? My first thought was that 'well, you threaten someone else, an innocent bystander or at least someone less super-soldiery', but I didn't know if there was anything from the comics or other media that's come up. I mean, every good superhero needs a weakness, right?

Me at social gatherings

Age 10: Everyone here is either a baby or a teenager.

Age 15: Everyone here is either a little kid or already out of high school.

Age 20: Everyone here is either still in high school or 30+.

Age 25: I can't even tell who's in high school and who just looks like they should still be in high school. I mean except for the people who are my parents' age.

Now: Everyone here is a teenager, my parents' age, or my age with children in tow. WHAT THE HELL I THINK I MISSED A STEP SOMEWHERE.
