Vocally political and liberal Steve Rogers
Fox News has no idea how to handle it because he’s Captain America and he’s literally from the 40’s like how do that handle that
He refuses to go on half of the news shows because they lie
Mostly ends up on the Daily Show, the Colbert Report, and the Young Turks
Starts charities that focus on kids and the poor
Donations to veterans charities go through the roof
Treatment for PTSD in veterans suddenly gets addressed after he admits to being diagnosised with it
Steve Rogers starting a twitter specifically for linking people to horrible news stories and calling news stations out on their lies and scare tactics
Using his twitter to complain about the state of public news and how it should be a space of change and value and honesty for the American public, and how he’s so ashamed of it all
He accidentally becomes like public face for the new generation of politically savvy people
They make of shirts like WWCD “what would Cap do?”
Tony is thrilled and proud and hires of team of lawyers exclusively to handle the news stations screaming about Steve
Fox news gets slapped with so many libel fines and law suits
Steve bringing attention to LGBT rights and the shit trans people have to go though, and then getting the fuck out of the way to let them talk about it. Like “look at the shit they go through…listen to them to find out how we can fix this.”
Steve using his “white cis male that goes by Captain America” status to draw attention to people that need help and situations that need changing but letting those people be the ones that voices get heard when people are actually paying attention.
Steve cockblocking Fox News pundits just by being Steve.
"How do you feel about the influx of illegals…I mean immigrants?"
"My parents were Irish immigrants. People aren’t illegal."
"I lived through the Great Depression and know exactly how it feels to not have enough food. Welfare is fantastic."
"But Black people…"
"Son, just don’t."
Steve’s response to every interview, “Son, just don’t.” Or sometimes, “Ma’am, just don’t.” He’s always more respectful of the female news reporters not out of old fashioned values, but because he feels bad for them being stuck with the guys that have interviewed him.
AND THEN STEVE COMES OUT AS BI
