The thing I love most about this is that Jim is very upfront about why he joined S.H.I.E.L.D. and genuinely gives no shits if he’s fired because Maria’s questions of where will you go and what will you do don’t apply to him. He’s not a career hero like Steve or the rest. Jim Hammond has been a beat cop in New York, a mechanic in Illinois and both head of security and CEO of Oracle Inc. He will always find somewhere to go and something to do.
The problem is the fact that no matter what he does or where he goes, he knows he doesn’t belong. Even with S.H.I.E.L.D., he’s not like the rest because S.H.I.E.L.D. is made up of people and aliens and LMDs and none of those are like Jim. After decades of trying to fit in and be human, Jim knows he’ll never manage it. So instead, he’s trying to figure out what he’s meant to be while doing a favor for a friend, because at least helping out Steve in some way is something he knows.
I want to snuggle OVER HERE, Bucky! 9X12 watercolor sketch on sketchbook paper
In a post, I mentioned that my little ratlet Toro, has taken dragging my little ratlet, Bucky, around the cage by Bucky’s scruff. Bucky will be minding his own business and Toro will come up, push at him, and when Bucky refuses to move, nip Bucky’s scruff and haul him to some other part of the cage and then lay on him until they fall asleep.
A FY dedicated to Marvel's earliest (via retcon) hero Team THE INVADERS!
A Marvel Super hero team consisting of Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Jim Hammond (Original Human Torch), Toro, Namor, and late comers Spitfire and Union Jack during WWII. They first appeared as a retconned team in Avengers #71 (1969) and later got their own comic that ran for 41 issues.
They've made appearances i n the Marvel U ever sense, and now one of Marvel's first hero teams is re-banded for more action.
I will try and fill this tumblr with information, characters, fanart, and essays about the team. Feel free to send me your submissions!
