*Spoilers Galore* Why do I ship Captain America And Iron Man?
This wasn’t supposed to be this long, but I felt the need to defend myself
Because it annoys me. I also like how you ask me to understand the reasons for this shipping, and tell me its not shipping for shipping sake..and then not give me reasons for the shipping.
I just hate shipping. It is a pointless excercise in my mind. Two characters that will never be gay, made gay in your head, for no real reason.
First, I wasn’t going to list all the reasons why I ship two characters on deaf ears, and I also assumed that you read a healthy amount of Marvel Comics and were aware of Captain America and Iron Man’s relationship that you could see how I was not just pulling this out of thin air or just shipping them together, because “
they like OMG totally look so hott together <3 <3”.
Now I could just post a bunch of slashy out of context moments, but I feel that the moments in context speak of themselves. You should also know that I would never ship anything without basis in the canon and it’s blaring, so much so that when I first started reading I assumed in all honesty, that they were an actual homosexual couple.
-Young Avengers #1
Steve Rogers and Tony Stark clearly love each other, and that’s not just some fan girl looking through slash glasses. It is canon that they are they are teammates, friends, partners and they love each other.
Captain America :..CEO of Stark Enterprises — who happens to be a close friend of mine
-Avengers Power Pack Assemble #1
Iron Man: ..you’re in a class all your own see you at the Avengers Mansion… partner
- Captain America Sentinel of Liberty #6
Captain America:..I’ll concentrate on the times you saved my life. The times I was in need and you were a good friend.
-Tales of Suspense Volume 1 #1
Iron Man - I knew that you and I would probably never speak again or be friends again or partners again.
- Civil War The Confession
Captain America is taking care of Tony.
-Ultimate Avengers vs. New Avengers #4
(Do you usually take care of people you don’t care about? Or are there when they are not at their best? Have you ever taken care of someone when they are throwing up or sick? I have only ever taken care of people I love.)
Highlighted - They Love each other, they just have some stuff to work out
-Avengers #9 (2010)
Highlighted - Iron Man(thought): Captain America, Steve, I look at your handsome face…into your clear azure eyes…
-Tales of Suspense Volume 1 #1
Highlighted - Iron Man: Guess they’ll have to learn to love me. You did.
- Civil War The Confession
Tony Stark: Any excuse to get me to hold you
Captain America: You see right through me
-Avengers Prime #3
Captain America: I’m sorry about the things I said before this happened. It’s-it’s just so hard to put away all the things that happened between us.
Iron Man: All those things… All the things I said and did— I’m—I’m so , so sorry. I know that’s not enough but I hope you will allow me the chance to earn your friendship back. I don’t deserve it…I just hope you let me, I’m not half as good at—at anything as I am when I’m doing it next to you. And that’s the truth.
Captain America makes Tony a better person, just being with him makes him a better person.
-Avengers Prime #5
In an alternate universe where Tony Stark was born as a female (Natasha Stark) they are already married.
-Fantastic Four Dark Reign #2
All this is canon, I’m not reading anything more than what I was being presented with. So why do I ship them together, I ship them because they love each other and the comics seem to tease a romantic relationship with these characters.
I am not making characters gay nor do I believe that Steve Rogers or Tony Stark sexual orientation is homosexual. Because homosexuality as a sexual orientation, refers to “an enduring pattern of or disposition to experience sexual, affectional, or romantic attractions, primarily or exclusively to people of the same sex; “. They are not homosexuals based on their past relationships with people of the opposite sex, that is clear, but I believe that their relationship could become romantic in the future if it isn’t already.
Even if shipping is a pointless exercise it’s my pointless exercise. I honestly think that if it were a heterosexual couple I were shipping you wouldn’t have a problem but some how the idea of Captain America and Iron Man being together really seems to annoy you.
