Why This Must Be Read: I shipped Jan/Steve really hard in the Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon because they had some really cute interactions. This is a really cute fic with Steve being really awkward and unsure about his crush on Jan until Nature delivers him an opportunity.

Why This Must Be Read: This was written before the Captain Marvel movie was announced so it's MCU but vaguely AUish to include Carol. This is a fun romp wherein Carol gets roped into the bridal party at Tony and Pepper's wedding, fights some bad guys, kicks some serious ass, and gets the girl guy.

Why This Must Be Read: This is super adorable with lots of fun banter and interactions, and an awkward but adorable attempt at a confession by Steve.

Why This Must Be Read: My last rec for this post is a story that, as a PoC, resonated really deeply with me. We know that racism is a reality in our world and that comics, despite their fantastical elements, are a reflection of our culture. The author (who is PoC) doesn't shy away from exploring how Eli has to negotiate being a superhero and fighting for a society that disenfranchises and marginalizes people who look like him. What would it take to make Eli give up his mantle as Patriot? How does racism and privilege impact his relationships with the rest of the Young Avengers (who are white) and especially Kate (who is both white and extremely wealthy)? These are heavy themes and complex themes, but the author writes about them with honesty and care. Highly recommended.


Mods, can I have fandom tags for Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and pairing tags for Janet van Dyne/Steve Rogers, Carol Danvers/Steve Rogers, and Kate Bishop/Eli Bradley?
