I just love how when they’re discussing about rei’s possible lovesickness and how they’re saying it’s bad and haru is just
like he really can’t believe being in love makes you weak
and even when Makoto ‘explained’ it to him why its particularly bad for their situation and whilst gets a reaction from Nagisa, Haru’s confused and baffled expression remained the same like he really can’t understand all the fuss about
but I suppose he isn’t one of the men
that is weakened by love that’s Goro is talking about
but rather he’s the kind
that is strengthened by love

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
(OKAY HAILAPHRODITE UNDERSTANDS)
Bucky comes and goes as he pleases, and Steve doesn’t say anything about it because he’s too afraid of doing something to make Bucky leave forever. His departures become less frequent, though, and on Thursday he even tells them he is going to leave.
"I’m going. I’ll come back."
"O-okay," Sam says, making the face that he makes when Bucky has done something completely incredibly unexpected but it mustn’t be pointed out.
"Call me if you need anything," Steve says, and Bucky nods, hoisting the duffel bag higher on his shoulder and walking out the door.
Sam stares at the door, then at Steve. “That was five whole words, Steve.”
Steve nods blankly.
"That’s definitely five more words than I was expecting to hear from him tonight."
"He’s on the up-and-up. Who knows, maybe he’ll come back with some Starbucks."
Bucky does not come back with Starbucks.
They don’t know when Bucky comes back, because it’s in the middle of the night and all the doors and windows are secured. (Steve left the door unlocked for him the first time he left, then two days later watched as Bucky came in through the window, so. No point.) They only know he’s back because at five in the morning, there is a soft whimpering sound, and then another, and then that is definitely a baby crying.
"Steve," Sam hisses, kneeling by the couch and shaking Steve’s arm roughly. "Steve. Steve. Jesus Christ, man, Steve.”
Steve swats blearily at his hand and sits up, looking around and listening for the threat. Nothing. A baby is crying somewhere, but that’s - wait -
"Is that coming from the guest room?"
Steve gets up, crossing the living room in bare feet and stopping a moment in the hallway to listen. The serum means he can hear other things, quieter things - the shuffling of fabric, the quiet sound of someone humming a tune under their breath. Bucky.

Even SHIELD didn't know the full extent (assuming we was submitted to a thorough evaluation, which I can see him refusing). But Sitwell was Hydra too, and presumably knew about Bucky and probably other super-soldier projects. It makes me think Steve's abilities are exceptional even within super-soldier standards.
I think even STEVE doesn’t know what he’s capable of, tbh. We see him evolve over the span of three movies, learning what his body can do, not coming up against any real limits. He uses his body like a tool, and it’s fucking amazing to see—the way he wields himself like weapon. sitwell’s disbelief for me was a gut punch. meant to really bring home to the audience—man, in a super powered world, people still underestimate steve. he’s not flashy like thor, he hasn’t got the artillery like iron man. but the secret of his power has been hiding in plain sight all along: it’s him. His body, his fists, his agility, his ingenuity—and above all, his durability. He survives. He survives, and that scares the shit out of people like Sitwell, who look at him and see a man, not a hero. Who see a supersoldier but don’t understand that being a supersoldier doesnt just mean a souped-up human body, elevated abilities. Not for Steve. For Steve it means tenacity and heart. It’s Steve’s soul made flesh—it’s his inner strength realized.
Yeah, you better be scared Sitwell.
