  • Captain America: The First Avenger, having changed Bucky Barnes from Cap's boy sidekick to his childhood friend of the same approximate age left a huge window of opportunity for fans to fill in the gaps of Movie!Bucky's pre-war history. Popular backstories include Bucky and Steve growing up in the same orphanage, Bucky working at the docks before he was drafted, and going to dance halls with pretty dames being one of his hobbies. Additionally, all three of Bucky's younger siblings are girls, with the oldest one being named Rebecca.
  • Following Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it is generally believed that Bucky has suffered brain damage from the chair and the cryofreezing, though the extent of it and what forms it takes varies.

  • Tony acting as a surrogate father to Peter Parker, Harley Keener, and Nebula, most often referred to as "Iron Dad" by fans.
    • By extension the idea that Tony raised his actual daughter Morgan to view at least Peter and often Harley as her older brothers.
