Steve Rogers has Two Mommies?



Okay, so my friend and I have carried this headcanon for a while now. We really think that Steve Rogers was raised by two women: his mother and his mother’s “friend.”

After all, his father died when he was just a baby, and it is EXTREMELY difficult to be a single mother in NYC in the 1920’s and 30’s, especially if you are poor AND Irish. Steve’s mother HAD to have had help from someone, even if it was simply moral support. Remarriage, even out of convenience, would have been a huge help, but have we ever heard even a mention of Steve having a stepfather? I don’t think so. 

Also, considering how beautiful Steve is, his mother must have been gorgeous. Even if she was a single mother, someone as young and beautiful as her surely had SOMEONE at least try to start a relationship with her, and yet we don’t hear about her ever having a new boyfriend after Steve’s father’s death.

So what if instead of getting a new boyfriend/husband….Steve’s mother had a girlfriend? What if Steve’s mother was bisexual, but refused to love another man after Joseph’s death? Or maybe she was a lesbian her whole life, and her marriage to Steve’s father was to hide her true sexual orientation?

Think about it, Mrs. Rogers bonding with another war widow and striking a friendship. That friendship means helping each other with domestic and financial responsibilities, which leads to sharing an apartment to cut costs, which leads to sharing a bed, which leads to intimate conversations, which leads kissing, which leads to an all-out romantic love. And the whole time, they support each other and Steve. 

Maybe Steve knew the whole time why Mama and her “friend” had sleepovers, maybe it clicked when he was older. Maybe it clicked when he saw open lesbian couples and it reminded him of his mother and his “aunt”. Maybe it’s yet to click, but one day it will hit him like a train that his mother was in love with a woman. 

And he will know from experience that two mothers is better than one. 

Well, Steve did grow up in the middle of Gay Brooklyn. Maybe he and his mother moved there as a part of a community. What if Bucky’s family did the same thing? Bucky’s parents were both gay, married for convenience and to have kids, but all of their social sexual life was led in that area.

Bucky and Steve grew up around all of the queer people. Of course they knew their parents were gay. Of course, if someone ever said anything, they’d kick their ass (or, Steve would try, and then Bucky would kick their ass). But at home it was okay. 

(And Bucky and Steve have conversations about stuff like that all the time. They have hypothetical conversations about what they’d be in a gay relationship — which is why Bucky feels perfectly comfortable calling Steve a punk (in modern gay jargon, a twink). (Maybe the conversations aren’t that hypothetical.))

I honestly saw this as a way of George telling D&D to fuck themselves





Bucky: “I’m going to buy tickets to a science fair so I can invite my best friend on a double date.”

Steve: “I’m going to pick a fight with a man twice my size and get into a back-alley brawl.”

Audience: “Oh Bucky, you’re such a bad boy.”

Probably the most obvious sign that North American culture considers sex worse than violence: James Buchanan Barnes becomes a “bad boy” for being able to get a date.

Y’know, this is a really good point, because fandom has generally taken the idea of Bucky as a bad boy, or the “dark” to Steve’s light, and run with it, on the basis of …. really no canon whatsoever, in the movies at least. In the comics, he actually is something of a snarky little troublemaker. In the movies, though, the grand total of stuff we see Bucky doing is:

  • Protecting his friend from getting beat up (in a fight that Steve actually started)
  • Going on a date and making sure Steve has a date too
  • Worrying about Steve enlisting in the army
  • Refusing to leave Steve behind in an exploding building
  • After getting tortured and experimented on, willingly following Steve back into battle to fight the guys who tortured him
  • Shooting a guy who’s about to kill Steve
  • Defending Steve on the train
  • Including the flashback scene in Winter Soldier, we also see him comforting his grieving friend and inviting Steve to move in with him rent-free.

About the “worst” things we actually see him doing are going on a date with two girls at once after Steve bails (which apparently both girls are totally on board with) and attempting unsuccessfully to flirt with Steve’s sorta-girlfriend, which is a jerk move but Steve doesn’t seem terribly bothered by it.

Steve, meanwhile, picks fights at the drop of a hat, commits or attempts to commit multiple felonies, disobeys almost every order he’s given, and at one point manages to get himself on the bad side of the entirety of SHIELD. 

…. which is not to say that there’s anything wrong with Steve, because Steve is an absolute sweetheart and I adore him, or that Bucky’s a saint who can do no wrong. But it’s just interesting how the two of them get filtered through the lens of fandom considering what they actually do.

It’s the pout. Bucky has that patented Bad Boy Pout (TM).

(Also it’s the fact that a lot of fanon gets established from comics-canon by people writing before the movie or even the full trailer is released. I’ve noticed the same thing with Clint/Hawkeye, who has pretty much no personality in Avengers-the-movie that I can see, but gets fanoned as a total dweeb because, let’s be real, I read comics too, Hawkguy is a total dweeb. ^_^)
