As things escalate between the team and S.H.I.E.L.D., it seems like Cap's needling might be getting to Rob a little bit.

It's really difficult to tell if that's Rob speaking in character as Tony, or as himself when he says he's offended, cause the character personalities are so similar.

The two really do blur together more than most, I think.

This version of Fury has a good point. I don't remember the 1st Avengers film all that clearly, but even that version of Fury had a decent point, though it suffers because

1) S.H.I.E.L.D. has little in the way of accountability themselves.

2) Spoiler for Phase 2 of Marvel: S.H.I.E.L.D. has been infiltrated by Hydra, since its beginnings. End Spoiler

I guess I'm waxing a bit political, for which I beg pardon.

Fury's point was largely the same in the movie, but it was more specifically focused on the arrival of Thor and the potential threat of other space-faring societies, with supers popping up in the rest of the world as more of an afterthought.

This is one of those things that got... quaint as the MCU progressed, especially once you realize Fury already had bona fide alien encounters in the 90s and had a direct line to Captain Marvel during Loki's entire attack.

No shade at the movie of course, since a) they couldn't have known then without over-committing, b) there's still perfectly valid reasons why he wouldn't have in this movie (not wanting to call her away from something important, originally not being sure if she was needed, wanting to create a team specifically so they wouldn't need to rely on her, etc.), and c) it's also a fact that Fury in the comic could theoretically call her in and the reasons why he won't are being held onto until later so I can't throw stones in a glass house, but it's still funny to me.
