Some Nerd Squee

So the MCU is updating Sam Wilson/The Falcon's backstory from social worker to veterans' counselor specializing in PTSD.

OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS SO MUCH.

Apparently in the new movie Cap will be living in DC. I'm not sure how I feel about this, because as much as I love DC, I think Steve would hate it. Too many hipsters. (OTOH he would probably have the same problem back in Brooklyn.) I've been trying to figure out what neighborhood he'd probably live in, because I'm a dork. I've narrowed it down to the U St. Corridor (my personal headcanon has Gabe Jones taking the Howlers to Ben's Chili Bowl on leave in the 1940s; the area is historically African-American and has a long and storied history with the Civil Rights movement throughout the 20th c.) and Q St. (as unpretentious a working/middle-class inner-city area as it gets in DC). I think he would be really discomfited by the Cleveland Park/Friendship Heights/Bethesda areas (so disconcertingly white and monied compared to other areas). But I totally bet he spends tons of his off-hours at the Hirsshorn Gallery taking in modern art and sketching.

Damn. Now I just want to write about Steve and Sam being bros in DC and talking about psychology and civil rights and stuff. DAMMIT.

Oh, and DC currently has a campaign to promote trans-people and I just want to see Steve being fascinated with that.
