Also, just throwing this out there to make people sad, but…
When he’s thawed out he’s laying down. He was frozen laying down. And the plane hit the water when he was in the pilot seat- we saw that.
Which means he wasn’t knocked out by the initial impact. And it doesn’t look like he drowned, either. He had time to see his expected death coming, after the impact, and lay himself down. My guess is some internal injuries from the crash, followed by freezing to death inside the plane.
So just go ahead an add a little scene in your head of Steve surviving the crash, but knowing that wet and isolated on a field of ice, in a plane that’s still sinking, nobody would get to him in time. But he knows he’s done his job. So he lays down, and closes his eyes, and maybe wonders if anyone will ever find his body, and bring it back to be buried by his mom and dad, since Bucky never was buried. But either way they’ll have a service for him, and that will be nice, and the priest will say the words and he’ll be at rest. And he feels bad, leaving his men, and he regrets everything he never told Peggy, and that he won’t be there for her now, but at least he did his part, right? He got the job done, and that’s what counts. If he dies alone, bleeding out and freezing, that’s all that Bucky got, to. So that’s all right.
I’m not crying. My eyes are just leaking.
I’m definitely crying

Super serious post about Steve and his extra capabilities—
- Steve Rogers is shown to be worthy of carrying Mjolnir, is one of few people capable of accessing Iron Man’s armory, and is one of two foreigners entrusted with the Black Panther’s technology. Steve is also one of the very few people that Wolverine truly trusts.
- Steve loves apple cake.
Oh my fucking god I died during this scene.
THIS IS NOT PLEASANT VIEWING.
The guy who is a total douche 90% of the time. But captain America? He waits alone.
Yeah, what a douche!
How dare he stop his company from manufacturing weapons and thereby risk losing it entirely.
How dare he try to make up for a lifetime of ignorance by making sure no one would ever be hurt by those weapons ever again, putting his own life on the line time and time again.
How dare he make Bruce feel like he’s not a monster, not some science experiment gone wrong, and instead treat him like he would any other person with an interesting habit.
How dare he work on creating a clean, reliable energy source so we no longer have to rely on fossil fuels and the like. An energy source only really possible because he was kidnapped and tortured in a cave.
How dare he fly a nuclear bomb through a portal to another dimension, willfully sacrificing his own life for the sake of the millions below.
What a douche.
SO FUCKING MUCH
