So, why is Twitter obsessive about him?
For those that haven’t watched the present but, take into account this a spoiler alert.
For others, right here’s a fast refresher. Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, approaches a financial institution for a mortgage alongside together with his sister.

He asks for a selfie and questions why Sam wants a mortgage given he’s an Avenger.
WHY are folks performing prefer it was Tony Stark’s job to pay the avengers? They didn’t work for him. He wasn’t even in command of the staff. He constructed all of them tech, constructed them the avengers compound and hosted them free of charge. Blame SHIELD or one thing as an alternative smh pic.twitter.com/L903p1cnIr

Tony Stark is a libertarian and the Avengers weren’t unionized. Of course they weren’t paid. Bucky needed to go Wakanda for healthcare! https://t.co/Px8q9vYIdN

It’s a tough scene to look at, having simply witnessed the white mortgage officer acknowledge Sam as an Avenger and ask for a selfie earlier than rejecting his software, but it surely additionally raises the query of why Sam wanted to ask for a mortgage in the first place. Didn’t the authorities or Tony Stark paid the Avengers, he asks. Sam explains that it isn’t a salaried place and the initiative was saved afloat by way of monetary assist from unnamed, grateful people.
This has led to a plethora of reactions online with folks attacking, and defending, the gazillionaire Stark for not coming to the rescue of his fellow Avengers. The battle quickly led to memes and jokes, and Twitter has been lit up since.
