Falcon is poor in ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’
Impressively enough, TFWS is diving deeper into the world full of consequences after Thanos’ blip. It’s showing us how the world has become worse after Avengers undid the snap.
In episode 1, we meet Sam Wilson’s sister, and we find out that his family is suffering financially. Sam approaches a bank for a loan to keep his family business afloat. Apparently, the bank denies him a loan with the reasoning that he had no income over the last 5 years.
Sam tries to explain that he too was blipped like all the others and as his sister argues, “How can you have income if you don’t exist?”
Sam also tries to convince the bank rep that he has govt. contracts and is eligible for a loan, but apparently the “New World Order” has some improvised rules.
The world’s reality and Falcon’s state impact us on a whole other emotional level. But the same scene in ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ reveals something that has made fans hate Tony Stark.
Why fans are hating Tony Stark over ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’?
Fans are cancelling Tony Stark after facing a revelation in ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’. Apparently, the conversation reveals that Avengers never received any payment, they had no salary, neither from govt. nor from the billionaire Tony Stark.
In the sequence, the bank rep asks the Falcon: “You know what I always wondered? How do you guys (Avengers) make a living? – I mean, your financials are all over the place. Is there some kind of fund for heroes? Or did Stark pay you when he was around?”
To which Sam replies: “No it doesn’t really work like that. There’s a tremendous amount of goodwill, and because of which people are inclined to help.”
This revelation surprised a bunch of people, who expected that Tony Stark must be paying the Avengers.
Tony stark started trending after that episode of ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’, and a section of Marvel fans started arguing that he should have paid the Avengers given he had plenty to offer.
Here are some of the tweets:
While a section of fans who are arguing that Tony should have paid are making him into a selfish capitalist, there’s another section that has a more reasonable defence.
Why Tony never paid the Avengers – Was he obliged to?
Tony sacrificed his life saving the world, but that’s a discussion for another day. Right? Currently, the debate is about whether Tony should have paid Avengers a salary or not? As a section of fans started cancelling Tony Stark after ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’, there were plenty of reasonable arguments in defence.
Tony Stark never paid the Avengers, and he should have never paid them – then why all the hate against him?
One of the fans (@PeterMokwebo) argued that Sam was team Captain America, and he fought against Tony, thus it makes no sense to ask Tony to pay him. Which is a reasonable point, but not necessarily a fair one.
However, another fan (@Zaaaraaai) tweeted a more acceptable argument. Which says that Tony has never been the leader of the Avengers. The Avengers don’t work for him. Technically, Captain America was the leader, and Avengers originally worked for SHIELD.
Even though Tony owes Avengers nothing, Stark was the one who built and provided all their tech and gadgets; he must have paid for all the other expenses as well; he also built the Avengers compound for them, a free place for all the Avengers.
Many other fans tweeted a similar argument:
While people cancelling Tony Stark for not paying The Avengers makes no sense, the emotions behind it after watching ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ are totally understandable.
However, we totally think Avengers had enough of the self-esteem that they would have denied Tony if he offered them a salary. It’s obvious that the govt offered them agreements and contracts multiple times, which must have included a salary, but such pay comes with restriction. The same applies here.
