Can we talk about this? Because, okay, in the first Iron Man movie, Tony says, “My father helped defeat Nazis. He worked on the Manhattan Project.” In the days when Iron Man was all there was to MCU, there were some really great fanworks exploring this. But then, when we see him in the Captain America movies, he is really manifestly not working on the Manhattan Project, and in one of the tie-in comics he pretty directly declares that he is doing Rebirth and the SSR instead.
And this is a really important question for Howard Stark’s history, because - because, well, if you look at all the most eminent American physicists, chemists, mathematicians and engineers in Howard’s generation, and the generation after, and a couple generations before, they pretty much all worked on the Manhattan Project, at least the people doing the sort of things he was doing in IM 2. And they didn’t just work on the Manhattan Project, they spent most of the war in top-secret hothouse conditions in Los Alamos.
So if Howard wasn’t in Los Alamos - whether he did peripheral work for the project or not - that means he was basically left out of the most important, defining experience that all of his peers shared.
I think about a week ago some people asked for pics of the nerdy 221b I made on sims 3 so here:
the awning on speedys is really low and i can’t fix it :’(
there’s a lot of little details that are different, but overall i think it’s not too bad. especially since I only used patterns and items from the expansion packs. I’m kinda proud of this.
i have no life.
