The Winter SoldierAn old enemy resurfaces. A new hero rises. And a ghost from the past awakens from his frigid slumber with orders from a new master.
[with Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson (Falcon) and Jennifer Morrison as Sharon Carter (Agent 13)]
Marvel’s House of M | What if you woke up one day in a completely different reality, with no memory of who you previously were?
In a blink of an eye, our beloved heroes suddenly become ordinary citizens in a world that is vastly different from their own.
Steve Rogers has no memory of serving in WWII, nor of losing Bucky Barnes.
Tony Stark did not end up with a hole in his chest, the Iron Man suit was never invented, and Stark Industries is the leading manufacturer of boxing robots for a sport called Robo Death Match, a sport where robots fight in boxing tournaments instead of humans.
Meanwhile, Clint Barton and Natasha Romanoff are married with two children of their own, living ordinary lives on a farm in upstate New York.
Bruce Banner is married to Betty Ross and he is an accomplished specialist in a prominent hospital.
Only two people in this reality still retain their memories: Erik Lehnsherr, otherwise known as Magneto, and his son, Pietro Maximoff. Pietro thinks he can return things to the way they were, but first he’ll have to convince the Avengers that this reality isn’t real and persuade them to help him get past his father to the person responsible for this reality warp: his twin sister, Wanda.[featuring Rachel Weisz as Betty Ross, Charles Dance as Erik Lehnsherr, Tom Wlaschiha as Pietro Maximoff, and Lara Pulver as Wanda Maximoff]
Marvel AU: Bucky Barnes and Clint Barton are friends. Bucky turns Winter Soldier again, and SHIELD orders Clint to take him out.
Clint: I’m starting to think you just like to hear yourself talk.
Bucky: I know you’re up there, even if I can’t see you, птица.
Clint: Well I did promise there was an arrow with your name on it. Was sort of hoping I wouldn’t have to use it, but we don’t always get what we want do we?
Bucky: Take your best shot.
Clint: Never anything but.
“I swear to god, Steve, I will drop the PASIV out of this fucking window if you don’t tell me RIGHT NOW why you thought taking this goddamn job was a good idea, what with Bucky running around our heads trying to shoot us out of our dreams.”
“Can’t you feel it, Clint? You’re antsy. We’re all antsy. We’ve been the best dreamshare team there is out there since Cobb’s disbanded, and we haven’t gone under in over a year.”
Avengers Inception AU → wherein Thor of Odin Corp. hires Steve Rogers’ elite dreamsharing team to perform inception on his brother, Loki, and a shade of their ex-resident thief Bucky (who was killed when the team’s last job went horribly wrong) tries his best to sabotage it.
Or: Steve extracts, Tony builds, Clint runs point, Natasha’s a master of impersonation, Bruce concocts, Thor’s a tourist, and things happen
