But don’t let the previous image fool you, I wasn’t spending my whole time in town playing tourist with Stevie: even at the end of my medical treatment, T’Challa wanted to keep an eye on me and insisted on working on my arm as he constantly had new ideas to improve it. *cough* Yes, I MAYBE forgot to point out when I posted the picture introducing my brand new “vibranium super weapon” that it was T’Challa HIMSELF, the freaking KING of Wakanda, one of the most brilliant scientists in the world, who took care of the whole project. I really couldn’t believe or even *understand* why a king would waste his time with a peasant like me and then…it hit me: when science is your life and you want to find a way to relieve some stress because you have the weight of a whole kingdom on your shoulders, what do you do when a guy with a metal arm full of cool 1940’s Hydra technology comes knocking at your door? Exactly. Yup, you can say that I was King T’s fun little science project and he *did* seem rather excited; designing, welding, fixing my arm in the very little spare time he had. As far as I was concerned, I wasn’t going to complain, I mean…LOOK AT THE RESULT! Just…WOW. When T’Challa told me he would make “a couple of minor improvements” compared to my former arm, I didn’t expect THIS, hell, I didn’t even EXPECT to leave Wakanda with a new arm! Even if he kept on telling me that he had a debt to pay, his Majesty owed me JACK SH*T, but here he was, entrusting ME, the Winter Soldier, with a wonder of technology, made practically 100% out of pure vibranium. JFC….My arm alone could finance S.H.I.E.L.D for the next 10 years. Now, I’M the one with a debt! But you know what is the most extraordinary thing? That someone other than Steve saw some good in me, enough to think I was reliable enough to receive a weapon with the power of destruction like this metal arm. “I’m sure you’ll make good use of it, Mister Barnes”. I’m…I’m trying to and from the bottom of my heart: thank you.
