Clint has given each Avenger a name in sign language. Thor is the letter ‘T’ in the motion of a hammer. Steve is a salute with an “R”. Hulk is an “H” over the bicep, but Bruce is the sign for doctor followed by the letter “B”. Natasha is an “N” being shot from his other wrist like a widow bite. His own name is a “C” being drawn back like a bow. Stark is an “S” taking flight, unless Barton is mad at him, then he fingerspells “A.S.” for Anthony Stark, but accidentally on purpose adds a second “S”.
actually this is how giving names work in sign language! usually you sign the first letter of the persons name and a motion that summarises them as a person, or something that reminds you of them!
Fascinating… what would Bucky and Sam be, I wonder?
Bucky is a “B” taken up to the forehead like a salute (so far, like Steve)—but then when he touches his forehead, he switches to the “I love you” symbol. Natasha notices right away. It takes months for anyone else to notice; and when it happens, it’s Tony, who misunderstands and thinks Clint means he loves Bucky. Tony’s “A-S-S” becomes Clint’s default choice.
Sam, I have to think about. I suspect someone else could come up with something fabulous…
