I found it very interesting when in the “but I knew him” scene where The Winter Soldier is being “repaired”,Pierce tells Bucky:
"Your work has been a gift to mankind. You shaped the century. And I need you to do it one more time. Society is at a tipping point between order and chaos. Tomorrow morning we’re gonna give it a push. But if you don’t do your part, I can’t do mine. And HYDRA can’t give the world the freedom it deserves.”
Pierce tells this to a confused and broken Bucky, as if coaxing him with the idea of Hydra giving the world the “freedom it deserves” as a means to get him to snap out of his slump and back to The Winter Soldier. When that doesn’t work, he gets wiped.Bucky’s been brainwashed into The Winter Soldier for almost a century yet Pierce tells him this…Why tell him this?
Maybe…for all these years, the brainwashing wasn’t just about being the perfect weapon but tricking him thinking what he was doing was right thing?James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes…the man who willing sacrificed himself for his best friend and his country…Could it be, this whole time…he was so unflinching in his role as the Winter Soldier simply because he thought he was being the hero?Maybe the tears in his eyes before being wiped…aren’t only just for the confusion for his flashes of memory brought about by seeing Steve for the first time in seventy years…but the realization that by chance HE wasn’t actually the hero…He even had his own star…
You people need to stop with the insightful ideas. *crying again*
The Twins work for Hydra too, but I think under the same lies and pressure. They “volunteered” according to the actors, to be part of the experimentation, that which they are the sole survivors of. Some people are upset by this, that the twins would never work for Hydra, but I think they are actually following their origin story as best they can without being allowed to use Magneto/Brotherhood/Mutants. Just replacing one terrorist organization with another. They are picked up from Eastern Europe by
Magneto Hydra and convinced that they were saved and owe their allegiance to the greater cause. They work under Magneto Hydra under the false pretenses that what they are doing is the right thing. Eventually they realize THEY are the terrorists and leave Magneto Hydra and join the Avengers. See? Works with their origin story AND is exactly the thing Hydra does. The twins were without family, without structure, and without support. Hydra comes in, not as Hydra but some kind of friendly organization (because Hydra is a secret organization, they don’t just invite anyone straight into them) and they literally abduct kids without family from Eastern Europe. They let the twins believe they are volunteers, like they lead Bucky to believe he is a hero, but what they are actually doing is holding them in cages, torturing them, and changing them.
Its really tragic, it doesn’t make they Hydra/Nazi sympathizers. It makes them like Bucky. Victims. Just like in the comics, except instead of Magneto fucking them up psychologically for his cause, it’s Hydra.
Where it all began:
What should they be doing?
People shooting at speedsters. *facepalm*
Poor Pietro. People actually shoot at him a lot. Must be something about him that makes people want to shoot him?
Tommy has the right idea. He’s just like ‘STAHP!’
HAHAHA. My favorite boys.
X-factor #260, All New X-factor #2, Siege #3
Wanda and Pietro’s xmen uniforms. :) I feel it’s time the twins joined an #xmen team!! Also, I haven’t been drawing. Trying to get back into it is haaaard. :( #quicksilver #scarletwitch #wandamaximoff #pietromaximoff #marvel #avengers #costume
If #quicksilver were to join the #xmen for the first time, I would imagine he would wear the X-uniform but still maintain his lightning bolt because he is #highfashion lol. His uniform would be black like everyone’s but his X would be blue. On the back is an M. For xMEN or House of M? For you to decide. Thoughts? #marvel #pietromaximoff #drawing

"Listen, I know how hard it must have been on you. I really didn’t want him to leave you there. Really! But you were so out of control. He just convinced me that it was all for the best."
Li’l Pietro is sad about his sister being taken away ;_;
They never explain on the show what happened to Pietro afterwards. His father also abandoned him, but we don’t know the specifics of his situation.
I think it’s implied that Pietro was acting out after this, and “Still impatient” was what his father said to him. I feel like Pietro complained “When is Wanda coming home” a lot and Eric kept telling him to be patient, and eventually Pietro acting out forced Eric to leave him behind too. Eric was very focused on his ambitions, he couldn’t take the time to deal with the varying emotional needs of his twins. Without their mother, as a single parent, he needed to be there for them 100% and he was soooo not up to that. Wanda was sent away, Pietro was abandoned. Pietro’s mentality was shaped by that to think he is never good enough. Wanda’s was shaped to think she is unwanted.
