Re: Falcon & Winter Soldier -- SPOILER THREAD

I admit I find it hard to believe Cap didn't check up on Sam's family during the blip. Granted, he might not have had the resources to do much, but he'd have helped in some ways.

Re: "Tales from the Undiscovered Frontier" - (Multicrossover Space Opera Setting)

The Aristo ship and the retracting boarding tube loomed ahead of Nisa. Her will remained focused on the ship, but inwardly she chided herself. You have doomed yourself. You have thrown your life away thoughtlessly. It wasn't that she couldn't breathe for the moment, because she could with the breath...
