You’ve watched Iron Man, Captain America and the Avengers? You ship Steve/Tony, but haven’t read a single comic? This guide is for you!
I spend the last few months getting to know their continuity. However, I’ve spend a lot of the time being confused and going back and forth, because I always missed something.
Under the cut you will find a list of comics and story arcs for Captain America and Iron Man, starting at the New Avengers (2005) until Avengers Prime (2010). This includes Civil War, which is essential to understand many of the better comic-universe fanfiction. I also added some download links, short summaries and recommendations.

“He’s the one that’s stuck with Robb up until the point I’ve asked him to go away and speak to his father. He’s been there, he’s been much as brother as much as Jon Snow, always…and I think that’s always been there, and especially… There’s fractures happening between him and his mother and he’s got an army to lead and this is the one man basically left in his life that he can be honest with and look in the eye and have a dialogue with…It’s two boys pretending to be men and speak about that and as this season goes on and you see what happens there, it’s a huge factor in what makes Robb this man, he really feels very much alone now that Theon’s gone and as the show progresses you see what happens with those two. And I think it really hurts Robb deeply, especially when he’s having these problems with his mother and all this pressure that’s very much on his own shoulders now, and no one he can share them with.”—

“Iron Man 3” starts production this month under the helm of Shane Black, who also co-wrote the script with Drew Pearce. Robert Downey Jr. returns as billionaire Tony Stark, while Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley and Rebecca Hall are also set.
Dale will play Eric Savin. In the Marvel comicbooks, he’s a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army at Camp Killian, was put in charge of Project: Ultra. After stepping on a land mine, cybernetic surgery is performed on him and he’s resurrected as the cyborg Coldblood.
temporarily breaking my tumblr hiatus to tell you about my experience on the bart today:
i was chillin on the richmond line, on my way home from dinner, and like the only seat left was behind this really nasty lookin white guy with even nastier lookin dreads….lmao they were so fucking ugly and they were right in front of me i couldn’t help but stare. literally they were the most pathetic attempt i had ever seen, and hella long and stringy. they were so bad i even considered taking a photo because it was so fucking unreal.
anyways he noticed me staring and turned around all defensive and shit and was like, “i don’t appreciate being treated like an animal in a zoo. i am not a specimen. stop objectifying my body. i see you staring. these dreads are part of my religion. i am rasta.”
and like all i could do was laugh tbh. i straight-up laughed at him to his face. it had to be a joke that a young white male was telling me to stop objectifying him and treat him like a human. like LMAO WHAT
but more importantly after I laughed he was about to say something else defensive and dumb and all the sudden this dude with actual dreads standing across the aisle yelled out, AYO CRACKA SHUT THE FUCK UP NOBODY CURRS BOUT YO RACIST WHITE BOY CULTURAL APPROPRIATION STRUGGLES AND YO NASTY ASS HAIR SIT IN YO DAMN SEAT AND ACCEPT YOU THE MOST VANILLA MUHFUCKA IN THE MUHFUCKIN BAY
omg it was the best and funniest thing that has ever happened to me on bart
