Captain America / Nomad
When the destruction of Novi Grad in 2015 left thousands dead and over two hundred thousand people homeless, it wasn't just about grieving the lost and finding the survivors new homes. In a country that barely covered 7,000 square miles and had lost a sizeable chunk of that within minutes, there just wasn't enough space to house accommodate everyone. For the first few months, the government turned anything with four walls and a roof--schools, community centres, even parkades--into makeshift residences, but the solution was only a temporary one. The relief funds and support from other countries weren't enough to mend what had been destroyed, and eventually, thousands of Sokovians found themselves homeless on the streets.
January 2018, Sokovia. Noon.
"Right there, see him? Grey jacket, red shirt, black baseball cap." Steve pointed from his perch on the roof of a three-storey apartment building. It was located along one of the main streets of Sokovia, and, as Steve had deduced after a few days of surveillance, the site of a drug drop-off. He watched for a few seconds more as the target cautiously reached into a potted plant and extracted a manila folder that looked suspiciously bulky--about €10,000 bulky, by Steve's estimates.
"Well, that's my cue," said Steve lightly, and leapt off, bounding gracefully from window ledges to hanging planters until he finally reached the ground. His impressive feat of acrobatics did not go unnoticed by the target, who'd watched, agape, until he realised that the focus of Steve's attention was him.
While Steve's new, grungy appearance might not scream Captain America, it certainly screamed trouble.
"You think one day they'll learn to stop running?" said Steve as he broke into an easy sprint, casually dodging the airborne patio chairs and falling bicycles that were meant to deter him. Into his commlink (provided generously by the Wakandans), he called, "Last one to catch him buys lunch!"
@SAM WILSON | Let me know if anything needs to be changed! The wings might be too flashy and identifiable to bring out in public, but if you think it can work for the thread, go for it! Also I have no plan for what happens next, so feel free to make stuff up aha. (Picture is of Aosta, which was the city used for filming Sokovia scenes.)
