Peter Quill actually only had trouble holding the infinity stone because he’s half Terran.
A fully human Terran would have done much better.
I mean, Jane Foster had the aether inside of her in Thor 2, and that seemed pretty potent (and potentially could have been another infinity stone, besides).
In fact, considering all of the mutants and badassery and whatnot that abounds in the Marvel universe, and the heavy-hitters Terrans can produce with just a little genetic tweaking or gamma radiation, it’s possible that Asgard took to ‘safeguarding’ Midgard in the first place because Odin figured out that the natives are scary as balls.
Maybe during the war with the frost giants, certain humans started manifesting strange/special abilities to deal with the threat, and Asgard’s scientists/wizards/etc figured out that the poor puny Midgardians were like a sleeping monster, and the aggression of the frost giants was ‘waking them up’.
So Odin stepped in to stop them and to try and keep people from interfering with Midgard as much as possible, so the monster would stay sleeping.
Which is actually part of why he is so very pissed off at Loki for the events of Avengers, and at Thor for bringing Jane to Asgard - it’s a very, very tight secret that Midgard is a powder keg full of potential super-warriors, and Odin does not want that getting out, and he does not want them getting out. If Earth can stay as a nice, quiet, backwater planet with very little contact with the larger universe, that’s safer for everyone involved.
Isn’t it relaxing?
Just seeing the snow quietly flow down, makes you calm.
This is so perfect I want to cry
This is so relaxing to watch
THIS IS PERFECT
I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.
My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe. — Jason Momoa on getting to play Aquaman (via fyeahlilbit3point0)
Post-CATWS AU where after Bucky has recovered most of his memory, he’s still wary about using his Winter Soldier skills. He declines Steve’s invitation for joining the Avengers and instead starts taking up some hobbies, and soon discovers that he enjoys photography. He decides to put it to use, and decides to travel the world and become a photojournalist. He goes to the most dangerous places, confident that his serum-enhances body can protect him, and by doing this job, it prevents ordinary people from having to risk their lives to tell these stories. Sometimes he does put his Winter Soldier training to use and has saved numerous people multiple times. By listening and telling other people’s stories, he learns to be able to move on from his past, and the next time Steve sees him, Bucky has forgiven himself, and finally allows Steve to love him.
Bonus: Steve loves receiving the letters and postcards that Bucky sends back often, and the next time Bucky’s back in town, he discovers that the walls of Steve’s apartment are covered with them.
hahahaha this is amazing.

So, apparently I’m on a roll. Second part of my “Dirty Text Messages” series. I have no excuses, it’s just a “fuck me” pose for it’s own sake. I wanted to draw a collar on him but it didn’t work with the bendy pose.
Dirty text message picture the first! A little more cartoony than usual but it was just too cute. Well that and I love Bucky in lingerie ^_^
