what an icon
look at the winter soldier’s little gloves though this guy is scraping his bitching metal arm all over the pavement those gloves dont even have fingers they arent protecting shit it’s a 100% aesthetic choice scientists are like “but what if we made him like 20% more badass” “good showing charles, lets give him punk rock hair while we’re at it”
#god bless every decision the costume department made
idk I don’t think the glove is purely aesthetic. I can’t imagine a hand made up of shifting metal plates would be very good for grabbing and holding things. I think the leather glove is for traction as much as it is for looks. not for this bit, clearly, but like when he’s attacking Steve with the knife, the glove would definitely make it easier to hold the hilt. but yeah also it looks fucking badass.
if they wanted to make him good at grabbing they would have gone with something like little silicone nubs. I mean if a god damn sleeve gets in the way of the plating and they do without it then the glove might inhibit plate movement. They also gave him loose long hair which not only can obscure vision, get caught in things, create a home for parasites if not kept clean, and can hide or impair the treatment or healing of a scalp injury.
His look isn’t all that stealthy, i mean assholes gave him a SHINY METAL ARM. not a nice matte harder to spot dark arm but SHINY ASS POLISHED SILVER.
They were going for a look.
"Charles. Get the girls from small arms R&D down here, ask them if they would bang our cyborg assassin…. or at least if they think he looks brooding".
"You do 416 damage"
“Is it dead?”
