Modern AU where the Invaders were a high school/middle school punk rock band that ended up breaking up as they all went their separate ways. Jim and Toro are cousins and Steve and Bucky were foster brothers at one point. Steve was the band leader and their drummer, Namor was the lead vocalist, Jim was the keyboardist, and Bucky and Toro were their guitarist and bassist respectively.
Steve went on to become a highly successful comic book artist, but his workaholic nature has caused a lot of strain in his relationships, especially his romantic ones. He has an on-and-off again relationship with editor Sharon Carter and a close friendship with fellow illustrator and colorist Sam Wilson.
Jim went on to study criminal law and opened a detective agency out of Brooklyn which is doing quite well. He works mostly independently and employs several others including investigators Jacqueline and Brian Falsworth and secretary Mary Mitchell.
Namor has gotten in trouble with the law and has been in and out of prison. He’s burned a lot of bridges, but Steve and Jim still bail him out despite everything. He has had many jobs over the years, both legal and illegal. He is currently a recovering narcotic who, after much prompting from his friends, is in university studying marine biology.
Toro went on to study criminal psychology and currently works for Jim’s agency. He met and married an elementary school teacher (Ann). He has the most stable life out of all of them, and he and Ann are currently trying for a kid, though they haven’t had much luck and are looking into adoption.
Bucky followed in his late father’s footsteps and joined the Army straight out of high school. He went totally MIA after an overseas accident and subsequent medical discharge. He showed up later after having spent several years in a cult that took advantage of his amnesia and bad situation to recruit him. He’s currently living on friends’ couches while attending therapy and looking for a job to get his life back on track.

BHOC: DAREDEVIL #153
Another week at my local 7-11 meant another flight of new release comics for me to buy and read. I was a regular purchaser of DAREDEVIL by this time, so I was right there when the next issue showed up. This issue represented the return of long-time series artist Gene Colan to its pages–a return that would wind up being relatively short-lived, but which was touted as a bit of a triumph. Colan had…

One thing I will never forgive the ‘more grounded’ version of the Cap universe in the MCU for is the complete erasure of the ridiculous wacky fantasy elements that I absolutely adore from the fandom conscience. Like Cap was fighting vampires and Nazi zombies among so much other stuff that went down. Zola was literally transferring his consciousness between robot bodies. It’s so wild and most of the MCU fandom (which makes up the majority of those who create fanworks) will never know. It’s a shame, really. Like obviously I know why the MCU did that, it just feels like they went “Let’s take Cap and remove a l l  t h e  f u n.”
1940s period fantasy is rare nowadays. WWII period fantasy specifically almost unheard of. The Golden Age Cap comics, however, are exactly that and that general feeling has still made it into the Modern Cap Era.
But, yeah, Golden Age Cap is trippy af and not for everyone, I get that, but it’s definitely for me and it’s kind of disappointing to see so little of the online Cap fandom showcasing that because the grand majority of them are MCU only fans who often cherry-pick the comics if they even glance at them at all. The MCU Cap universe feels like it takes itself way too seriously and that’s a damn shame.

If we are heading into the negative zone, it is a coin flip that we are either about to fight Annihilus or Blastaar...

So Thor had lost this power, but I guess it is back again. It really lessens the blow of bifrost constantly getting destroyed when Thor can just rip open portals to other dimensions, since you would think that should obviously include Asgard.

Negative zone is one of those places that is almost always a sign that a bad comic is coming up...

...the nu-Lavamen can turn themselves into a ship? that is capable of flight? also it would be really weird to fly around in something made of people... even if they are weird metal people.

Conversation
Bucky: So again your alibi is a mysterious stranger handed you the war plans, made you put your prints on them, took them from the General's office, and then hid the plans in your underpants.
Captured German Spy: Well, yeah, if you say it like that it doesn't sound believable.
[Steve walks by]
Bucky: Oh hey, Captain; did you get my report on the HYDRA sting?
Steve: Ah yeah, I looked it over. Nice work.
Bucky: Good. Thanks, Pappy.
[Invaders stop what they’re doing to stare]
Bucky: Why is everyone staring at me?
Toro: You just called Captain America Pappy. You said, “Thanks, Pappy.”
Bucky: What? No I didn’t, I said, “Thanks, man.”
Steve: Do you see me as a father figure, Bucky?
Bucky: No. If anything I see you as a bother figure, because you're always bothering me.
Jim: Hey, show your father some respect.
Bucky: I didn't call him Pappy.
Steve: No, no. James, I take it as a compliment.
Toro: It's not a big deal. I call Jim Pappy all the time.
Bucky: Guys, jump on that. Toro has daddy issues.
Namor: Old news. But you calling Rogers daddy...
Bucky: Hey, 'daddy' is not on the table here.
Captured German Spy: Well, you did call him Pappy, dude.
Bucky: You shut up. You've done nothing but lie since you got here.
Captured German Spy: Okay, I was lying about the war plans, but the Pappy thing, that happened.
Bucky: Ah-ha. He admitted the alibi was a lie. All part of my crazy, devious plan.
Steve: I believed you-
Bucky: Thank you.
Steve: -son. You want to talk about it later over a game of catch?
Bucky: I'd like that.
