Scorpion

(no subject)

Liz Farrell: Okay, I'm sorry, but - who's Bucky?
J. Jonah Jameson: "Who's Bucky?"
Jessica Jones: Bucky was Captain America's sidekick during World War Two.
Jameson: How could you not know Bucky? How old are you?
Liz: It was World War Two. How old are you?
Jonah: I was extremely young back then, thank you for asking. Young enough - and naive enough - to want to be Bucky.
Jessica: You wanted to be Bucky?
Jonah: Every kid did. Until Captain America led a fourteen-year-old boy behind enemy lines... and got him killed. Suddenly, I didn't want to be Bucky anymore. Nobody did. From then on, sidekicks only showed up in comic books.
Jessica: Until now.
