Jenn. 20 something living in the DC metro. This used to be a multi-fandom blog and then Marvel happened. Expect a mixed bag of television, comics, science, politics, and wailing about my inability to Adult properly. But mostly Marvel. And a hell of a lot of Steve/Tony. *In an effort to keep my dash manageable, I do not follow tumblrs that don't use tags. Use tags! They are handy and make the world a nicer place!*

Please don't make Coulson gay because you can. He was created straight and written straight in Battle Scars.

Look, no-one said I was or wasn’t writing Coulson in Secret Avengers as gay. One beautiful thing about fiction is that we fill it with our own meanings. For example: was Coulson really created and written straight, instead of, let’s say, bisexual? How do you even do that unless you explicitly identify him as straight and choose to believe the character is telling the truth? You see my point? In case you don’t: fiction is infinitely malleable. There is no certainty, and there is no certainty in the universe, except perhaps change. 

I sense a certain dose of entitlement in your request — which, by the way, says a lot about you and nothing about the fiction you consume. I don’t react to entitlement well, but I am transforming my initial reaction into something positive here, and perhaps you’ll use that as a guiding light for yourself, too. Perhaps the question you want to ask yourself is, “Why am I so hung up on my perception of a fictional character’s theoretically heterosexual identity, and does me being hung up on it have anything to do with my possible uncertainty regarding my own sexual identity?”

It might. It might not. U-decide.

I just became a fan of Ales Kot. Now to figure out what he writes and buy it.

But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

Man, can we just fire whoever is doing Iron Man now and pop you in there?

Oh bb.

I don’t know if you guys have heard but the new Superior Iron Man is officially being written by Rick Remender.

I would be over the moon if we fired Rick Remender. I’d write Iron Man for free…

I think this needs some clarification:

Remender will be the main writer for the AXIS event, which will include The introduction of Superior Iron Man. Tom Taylor and Yildray Cinar will be writing the actual SIM book following AXIS.

Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."  

Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”

On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.” 

What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults. 

If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.

found this little tidbit at the end of CBR’s Axel-In-Charge interview. setting aside for moment that we’re getting a new Young Avengers title (kind of? but still, yay!), I’m currently freaking out about that cut off word.

REBIRTH. REBIRTH, HICKMANVENGERS IS GOING TO END WITH A REBIRTH OF THE MULTIVERSE HOLY SHIT PLEASE LET THIS BE IT PLEASE TELL ME ALL THE SIGNS HAVE BEEN POINTING TO LIFE, DEATH, AND RESURRECTION. TONY AND STEVE ARE THE BALANCE OF THE UNIVERSE, EVERYTHING DIES, YET EVERYTHING LIVES IN AN UNENDING CYCLE.

I mean, we’ve been theorizing this for over a year now and it’s nice to see we haven’t been reading the tea leaves completely wrong. (Assuming it’s rebirth don’t dash my dreams I want this so much it’d be really satisfying to me on at least three levels please Hickman please)
