They’ve got civilians trapped.
I love that while the avengers fought the aliens you also see them helping to evacuate people so they are safe. It’s not just fighting, it’s rescue as well.
YES THANK YOU! This was my huge and horrible problem with Man of Steel. No help. Buildings falling left and right. I just kept saying “There’s another 10,000 dead people…oooh, and another 10,000 right there!” And no one cared. It left me feeling a bit sick, actually.
In the same movie Captain American *repeatedly* goes out of his way to rescue civilians, order the local police to make sure that the civilians are safe, tells people to get underground in a deleted scene, and leaves the main battle to rescue an entire bank full of terrified people from the Chitauri. He damn near gets blown to pieces doing the last, after losing his cowl so that the entire world can see his face and realize that the guy in the Captain America outfit is the lost hero from 1945 who sacrificed himself to save the entire Eastern Seaboard.
Want more? Don’t forget that Thor offers himself to save an entire town of people he doesn’t even know, and that a couple of years later Jane runs through a library screaming at people to get away from Malekith and his ships as they ravage Greenwich. And what the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Nova Corps banding together to save an entire planet? Tony Stark sending his precious armor to save Pepper, then ordering her to remove Maya from the battle zone before thinking of himself? Bruce Banner going underground to heal people in the most literal sense? Sharon Carter taking the extra second to kick the launch technician’s chair out from under him just in time to prevent Crossbones from blowing him to hell? All those poor doomed SHIELD agents trying to take on STRIKE teams with hand guns to prevent those helicarriers from getting intot he air?
Best of all, after spending two years working beside Cap and going on the lam with him, Black Widow, the most morally ambiguous character of them all, shouts “Get out of the way! RUN!” as she flees for her life from the Winter Soldier. This is a woman who a worldwide reputation for black ops, and even she puts non-combatants above her own life.
It’s one of the things I love best about Marvel: their characters are more than muscle and speed and grandstanding against impossible odds. They have heart and soul and spirit, and every single one of them, without exception, is willing to take the extra second or two to protect the innocent and the defenseless even if it means their own lives. There’s a moral core there that the Superman of Man of Steel lacks, and it’s a reason why these movies are so popular:
We know in our bones that if we lived in their universe, they’d do what true heroes do, and they’d save us.
Superman, at least in Man of Steel, doesn’t.
That makes all the difference.
Also why Christopher Reeve is and will always be my Superman.
Yes. All of this. Just…yes. All of this. (Including the Christopher Reeve part too!)

This is a really good depiction of social anxiety because it focuses on inner states rather then outward actions. As someone very good at concealing his anxiety, I appreciate it.
I can relate to that.
Since a few of you were interested in some autumn-y hs icons i made a kids set to test my idea for the theme. As always feel free to use any if you’d like, enjoy! <3
