Watched the first episode of THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER.

THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER is good, and thoughtful about what the MCU world has become. But… [SPOILERS]

…I’m a little confused as to why an Avenger – even one originally on the wrong side of the Accords – would be in financial difficulty. That scenario at the bank should have ended with So, let’s talk endorsements, Falcon. Something tasteful, of course. You wearing the uniform, talking about how your family’s banked with us for generations. A couple of billboards, maybe a TV spot? I mean, sheesh, that’s local advertising gold. Tourism gold, too: that town should be awash in Falcon stuff.

Or Sam talks to Rhodey who talks to Pepper and then suddenly every financial problem goes away. Or, hell, Sam talks to Pepper. They unquestionably know each other. And so on, and so on.

  1. … think of it as added comic book verisimilitude.
    Comic book characters inhabit a world where obvious solutions like that aren’t thought of… because the needs of the plot.

  2. We were a little late on this, since my wife was traveling over the weekend, but after watching it, I have one major thought that occurred to me. Remember how we had massive supply-chain disruptions last year when everyone started staying home? What’s it going to do to supply chains (and food supplies and *prices*) *when the population of the world doubles instantly*? Someone in a food-production business (like, say, running a fishing boat) might have a problem with being able to ramp up production to meet the increased need, because it’s a worn-out boat and she doesn’t have a lot of extra crew, and there’s only so many fish in the Gulf of Mexico, but the business ought to have revenue coming in hand over fist. The financing shouldn’t be a problem, even without the issues you mentioned above.
