So I thought I would finally do a page on James’ background and also on the way that I play him in case anyone had any questions.
Now I know that a lot of people think that James is an OC. Actually… he isn’t. He’s canon in the Next Avengers comics from the Marvel Universe Earth-555326.
I just.. wanted to clarify that. Now. Onto the good stuff. *claps hands together*
So James, as everyone should know by now who has talked to him for a long time, lost both of his parents when he was just a baby to the robot named Ultron in his quest to create the perfect world. And in that quest, many other heroes died by Ultron’s hands. So Tony took James and a few of the other kids away, hiding out until he was about 12 years old. In which was when he came out of his isolation, found other people and found and defeated Ultron.
Now.. I haven’t really been able to read the comics because I haven’t had access to them but I did watch the animated movie. Yes, there was a movie. I would recommend it. If you would like a link to it, then you can always ask me. Anyway, as I was saying. In the movie, you can tell James grew up a slightly angry child with the way he acts in the beginning, but he grows up and he matures throughout the film because he knows what he has to do. And there are a few moments during it, when talking about his father, that he gets this softened expression about his face and you can tell he feels sad. From those few moments, that’s why I chose the fact that he adores his father above everyone else. Not Captain America, but Steve Rogers, because he made something of himself and he was a great man. And a large part of him regretted not being able to meet him.
Also, with that in mind and in my head, during the time span of when him and the other kids as well as the Scavengers were cleaning up Ultra City ( Their New York City ), James had to help become a leader with Francis, someone who had to be strong for others and hold back his own pain. Which made him strive to be stronger for the others and himself. And if you notice, he sort of still carries that trait with him now being in this universe.
Now talking about his traits, he did get a lot from Natasha. Like.. being able to insult someone and also give them a compliment at the same time. And her temper. But mixed in with that, James can also forgive if it’s actually worth his forgiveness. He’s learned that certain things can’t be forgiven no matter what was said or done before. But he has a lot of love in his heart. He doesn’t like to just hate someone just before meeting them. And he hates very few people compared to the many that he does love.
And with that.. I think that’s enough information right now. I’ll probably think of some more things when I think of it heh but thank you for those who are reading this and you are awesome.
