—The description of Age of Ultron: Redux
Issues? Our mother was killed by a missile that Stark made when it hit our house during the war. My brother and I were trapped in the rubble for three days, staring at the Stark Industries logo. Staring at the machine, the name of the man that had killed our only family. We were refugees, children that no one wanted. Who would take in a filthy Roma
? Roma just steal, Roma just lie, never trust a Roma, everyone knows that. We were beaten and kicked out of foster homes. We grew up on the streets! We had no one to care for us, no one to love us. People spit at our feet! Stark brought war down on our heads, destroyed our cities and killed our people. He made our lives miserable. And you say, you say that I have 'issues'? [in tears]
I did not have issues
with Stark. I wanted him dead
This is for Yelena! [strikes Madame B into a wall]
This is for the man you made me shoot! [grabs the older woman by the throat]
This is for every girl you had killed because she had the gall to retain her humanity! [holds Madame B up and the Black Widow draws a knife from her belt]
And this is for me. [stabs her former trainer in the stomach]
Ill be honest with you, I might not be the best person to ask. Im Buckys best friend. Its like asking a wife to testify against her husband. You cant help but remember all the ways that person was good for you and all the reasons why you cared about them. And that can mess with your judgment. But Ill try and stick with the facts: the fact is that a man has been brainwashed for decades by an organization that we know has a history of murder, espionage, discrimination, persecution, and God knows how many other crimes. Id also like you to consider Barnes distinguished military career up until his supposed death while in action. If the kind of person like Barnes, with his venerated, untarnished career, is suddenly a killer for an organization like HYDRA, one that we know uses brainwashing techniques, wouldnt that make you think twice about persecuting him at the very least? And why - Im sorry, why are we even discussing the death penalty? Why is this still a thing in our country, when - when we claim to be better than others while doing the same things that they do, thats where we start to lose our way. I think Buck - that Barnes, is a convenient patsy for the media. Hes the big, scary assassin that everyone can blame. Its why Natasha Romanoff is still on trial after being the one to release the HYDRA files in the first place and risking her life repeatedly for the sake of this country: shes a convenient patsy. The government and the public likes to have a boogeyman to hate. If the government was truly interested in being fair, they would finish decoding and sorting all of the released HYDRA files before starting a manhunt. And wheres the manhunt for Brock Rumlow? He publicly stated that he was for HYDRA, and he doesnt even get a blip on the radar. Barnes shouldnt be Public Enemy #1. The people at the top who gave him his orders and snuck into SHIELD through the back door are the ones we should be going after. [realizes hes gone on a bit of a rant and that everyone looks a bit taken aback] Im sorry, its just... this hits a bit close to home, yknow?
