Vocally political and liberal Steve Rogers
Fox News has no idea how to handle it because he’s Captain America and he’s literally from the 40’s like how do that handle that
He refuses to go on half of the news shows because they lie
Mostly ends up on the Daily Show, the Colbert Report, and the Young Turks
Starts charities that focus on kids and the poor
Donations to veterans charities go through the roof
Treatment for PTSD in veterans suddenly gets addressed after he admits to being diagnosised with it
Steve Rogers starting a twitter specifically for linking people to horrible news stories and calling news stations out on their lies and scare tactics
Using his twitter to complain about the state of public news and how it should be a space of change and value and honesty for the American public, and how he’s so ashamed of it all
He accidentally becomes like public face for the new generation of politically savvy people
They make of shirts like WWCD “what would Cap do?”
Tony is thrilled and proud and hires of team of lawyers exclusively to handle the news stations screaming about Steve
Fox news gets slapped with so many libel fines and law suits
Going on a show and regretting it the moment an offensive question or comment comes up and decides he’s completely done and just tears the interviewer a new one. It goes viral.
The public face thing is just the start. It starts this whole new wave of people that shut down offensive shit during interviews and holding their own.
There is a short time period once he turns 35 where there is a rally cry of “Captain America for President” that he gracefully turns down.
But politicians starting courting him, trying to get him to publicly state that they support him because his influence is just so massive, and they keep getting shut down hard
Talks about growing up in the depression when people bring up financial issues - says things like “With all due respect, ma’am, what others may remember as being over 80 years ago was less then 5 ago to me. Things were supposed to get better. Those issues we thought we fixed were supposed to go away - we were supposed to work to a future where it was gone - and instead it seems to be worse then ever.”
And of course he’s a raging feminist and is absolutely appalled when Natasha tells him about rape statistics
Bruce takes a lot of time to fully educate him about the social and medical side of abortions, teaches him about the various birth defects and medical issues the mothers can face, shows him the demographic information of access and need, and Steve is horrified by that too
Then Tony walks him through gay rights and other LGBTQ issues, all of them helping him understand how sexuality can manifest differently and the difference between sex and gender identity
Steve just REAL FUCKIN DONE with everything.
Angrily stands in protest rallies and dares people to start something with peaceful protesters. Just DARES them.
Rolls his eyes at baby boomer articles about the newer generations. He’s heard that mess before. He’s done with it.
Understanding people have problems with medical bills, having been there himself.
Fucking standing up for single mothers becaUSE LIKE WHOA THAT’S HIS MOTHER YOU JUST DISSED.
Steve Rogers hating bullies. Hates that kids are actually KILLING THEMSELVES because of bullying and people are just “oh boys will be boys” about it and he’s just LIVID.

Hey look, I have three hours of internet, prompt my ass for these.
Pairings that I don’t write shitty are pretty much all as follows.

There are negative notes….

HOW ARE THERE NEGATIVE NOTES?!?!?!?!
I will never not have fun with this. First one:
It’s a pity that kids these days are all getting involved with [Genetically engineered super-soldiers].
Headcanon where all of the Avengers assume that Bucky was the one who used to get Steve into trouble during the pre-war and war days, but within 3 days of Bucky joining the team they all realize that it is actually the exact opposite.
No, you know what? I’m not done with this yet.
Because what if when Bucky’s around Steve is like, 1000x more reckless because everyone knows doing stupid and dangerous shit is way more fun when you have someone trailing around after you and telling you that it is a terrible idea, Steve, oh my God, if you jump outta one more plane I will END YOU.
So the others start betting money on who can get Steve to do the most ridiculous thing. And Clint’s the one who realizes that literally all it takes to get Steve to do the thing is to get Bucky to tell him not to do the thing. He doesn’t think Steve even realizes that’s what’s happening.
"Hey, Cap," Clint says. He’s gonna win like, ten thousand off of Stark for this one. "You ever think about jumping off the roof?"
"Can’t say that I have," says Steve.
"Really?" Clint asks. "Because I bet you could make it to the next building over."
"Probably could," says Steve. "But I know what you’re doing. I’m not going to try."
"Damn right you’re not," Bucky mutters.
Steve sets down his book. ”You know what?” he says, standing. ”There is only one way to know for sure. Guys, I’m going to jump off the roof.”
Oh look. My headcanon.
