Dear Avengers and Iron Man movieverse fandom,I’ve noticed there’s fanfic in which poor Rhodey has been demoted three whole ranks. Here are some facts that may prove helpful when writing:
1)  He is Lieutenant COLONEL James Rhodes.
2)  He is addressed as “Colonel” or “Lieutenant Colonel” in conversation.
3)  His pay grade is O-5.
4)  Lieutenant Colonel is ranked above a Major (O-4) and below a full-bird Colonel (O-6).
5)  Steve would salute Rhodey and Rhodey would return the salute, not the other way around. A Captain (O-3) is two ranks below a Lt Col.
5a)  But Rhodey MAY salute Steve first, out of respect.
6)  Rhodey is NOT a Lieutenant, which is one of the two LOWEST commissioned officer ranks in the Air Force, 2nd LT (O-1) and 1st LT (O-2).
7)  His insignia is a silver oak leaf (or a black oak leaf if wearing desert cammo).
8)  Based on his rank, he’s served approximately 10 to 16 years in the Air Force.
9)  He was Air Force ROTC at MIT. (It’s implied, anyway, since Tony talks about them going on Spring Break together.)
Thanks,Scroll


Handy stuff to know!


And Carol Danvers /is/ a full-bird Colonel, so she ranks both Steve /and/ Rhodey.

An addendum: one of the only legit and proper ways Rhodey would salute Steve first is if Steve is a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor.  While it is not required by law or military regulation, there is a very strong cultural tradition in the services of rendering a salute to a CMOH winner as a sign of respect.
(I don’t know if Steve is a CMOH recipient in the MCU, - I’d consider it fairly likely, though, given the events at the end of First Avenger.  A lot of CMOH awards are posthumous.)

I have reblogged all this before, but I have been told that Rhodey is full-bird Colonel by the end of IM3. I do not have the canon source for this, but he rescued the goddamned President with a 45, I’m shocked he’s not Secretary of fucking Defense by the end of IM3.

Suddenly, fic thoughts of Rhodey being presented the CMOH (because let’s be honest, if there’s valor, it’s rescuing the President with a .45 and a polo shirt) and Steve being at the ceremony and possibly getting the privilege of putting it on him.

2700 different versions of spiderman snapbacks but NOT ONE!! variant of a black widow style. my frustration with marvel merch is at an all time high

- where’s my black widow jewelry line with classy hourglass pendants and earrings and how wide bracelets/cuffs that imitate her widow bite gauntlets??

- limited edition leather jackets that imitate her mcu costume, in collab with some fashion brand!! they’d be badass. also leggins!!

- where are my black widow cups and notebooks and ‘exclusive retro black widow poster editions’

- her logo is awesome (and offers so many possibilities from a design pov) why is it not plastered everywhere??? it works as embroidery and in different colors and large and small and and and….

- … so where are my all-over hourglass print pajamas and bedsheets and shower curtains

- also like, black milk style leggins and swimsuits. actually can black milk do some marvel stuff? but esp the girls

- black widow iphone cases. cmon, you need to cover your basic merch bases

- not even the basics?? I want more t-shirts. especially the phil noto art?? why is it not on shirts???? so that I can put it on??? I want phil noto’s nat on my body is that asking so much

- I /WANT/ TO GIVE YOU MY MONEY BUT WHY ARE YOU MAKING IT SO DIFFICULT MARVEL

Kids Are Given Game Boys, Feel Instant Sadness

Ah, Game Boys. Forget your 3DS and your iPad mini: there was a day when these handheld hunks of 8-bit glory owned the playground. But these kids don’t remember it so watch the full hilarious video of their reactions to the original Game Boy here.

Aint this some bullshit. Except that kid in the green, he’s cool as fuck.

A thing about Hogwarts Houses in general: they can be thought of as indications of a person’s motivation, or of their loyalties.

Gryffindors are driven by their morals and are loyal to the world, or at least to their idea of what the world should be. Gryffindors will always stick up for what they believe in, and they will help anyone in need (hence, “daring, nerve, and chivalry) unless it’s a person they feel is wrong or against them. At that point, you become the enemy.

Hufflepuffs are driven by a sense of fairness, which is not quite the same as morality. Hufflepuffs are the type to believe that everyone should have an equal chance, and they are better at seeing the shades of grey between a Gryffindor’s absolute right and wrong. They are loyal to their friends, or to the group they consider themselves a part of.

Ravenclaws are driven by enlightenment. This is very different from book smarts. It’s not terribly unusual for Ravenclaws to not excel in academics, because it’s not about the grade for them; it’s about the knowledge they gain, and whether they consider that knowledge interesting enough to bother with. They are loyal to their passions, which could be anything from books to art to fantastic creatures that may or may not be real.

Slytherins are driven by recognition. That could mean fame or power, or it could just be the validation of the people around them. They are loyal to themselves. This, by extension, means they are fiercely loyal to those closest to them, the ones they consider their own, because harm to their own is essentially the same as harm to themselves.
