calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.

Nothing makes me more pleased than Marvel making Marvel fanboys angry about genuinely good and interesting comic choices.

More likely the new Iron Man will be Tony Stark’s disabled brother Arno (which would fill one gap in superhero diversity that’s been missing since Oracle) though to my knowledge his sexuality haven’t established.
Edit: Nevermind, it’s Tony Stark.  -_-fandomsandfeminism:

50:Favorite movie? from donnys-boy

Oddly enough, while I don’t watch much film, I do have a few favourite movies.  However, I’ll just give one so if someone else wants to ask they’ll get a different answer.

A long time ago when I was University I took a course that dealt with the history of Latin America on film, which was quite interesting from the perspective of presenting history as a constructed narrative and how we think about it.

One of the films I saw was a Brazilian musical called Quilombo about the the historical community of escaped slaves known as Palmares, which existed in Brazilian from 1605 to 1694. 

However, rather than present even a facsimile of a realistic historical account, they present a mythical version of Palmares as a musical which heavily emphasizes the African part of Brazil’s musical heritage.  I don’t know musicals, but at the time that I saw it I was stunned both by the quality of the music, the colourful costuming, and the statement it made about the importance of myths and aspirations.  I vow at some point I will find an English subtitled copy of the film AND the soundtrack.  Even if it’s released on the pricey Criterion Collection.

What is Nextwave and why does it get your panties all wet? from Anonymous

Its like Shakespeare. But with lots more punching!

In an interview, Ellis said, “I took The Authority and I stripped out all the plots, logic, character and sanity.”[5] “It’s an absolute distillation of the superhero genre. No plot lines, characters, emotions, nothing whatsoever. It’s people posing in the street for no good reason. It is people getting kicked, and then exploding. It is a pure comic book, and I will fight anyone who says otherwise. And afterwards, they will explode.”

It’s just absolutely bonkers!

image

It gives zero fucks

image

It has its own Theme tune!!!!!!1!

image

His name is the captain.

image

It’s fun! Simple as.

image

It doesn’t take itself seriously at all.

image

It’s an absolute joy to read.

image

EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS!

And also read Superior foes of Spider-man because it’s like nextwave but with a lot less punching.

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE COMIC BOOK THERE ARE ROBOTS AND NOTHING TAKES ITSELF SERIOUSLY AND PEOPLE BLOW EVERYTHING UP AND THERE ARE MORE FEMALE CHARACTERS THAN MALE CHARACTERS ON THE TEAM THREE OUT OF FIVE BEINGS ISN’T THAT AMAZING?

Sulla Difensiva: Why I support the changes to Helena Bertinelli →

cyborgwolfs-says:

helenabertinellihuntress:

Let me preface this essay by first off, introducing you to my friend.

This is my friend, Lariza.

(She’s on the right).

Now Lariza is a smart girl who is currently majoring in anthropology at UCLA. She also happens to speak three languages: English, Tagalog,…

[
snipped for space…] Your post is true for a total new character but not for one that already exist. They shouldn’t have changed her, they shouldn’t have changed wally and this is one of the many example why I cannot tolerate the new 52.

Why?  You haven’t given a single reason why it’s wrong to change an existing character’s skin colour - particularly a white character in a media where white characters are over-represented.  In fact you posted this entire rant in response to a detailed essay that pointed out a.) there are Italians of colour, b.) with her hair and colouring the New 52 Helena Bertinelli could easily be Sicilian (and hell spent half her life there pre-reboot), and c.) that the concept of “race” is so malleable, particularly within the specific contexts of Sicily and the Mediterranean than, “You changed the character!” complaints don’t wash.

And you’re upset that they changed Wally West’s skin colour?


Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.

— my uncle left this comment on his friend’s Facebook status, a white British man who was bragging about how easy it is to be a native English speaker when trekking to different nations. (via maarnayeri)

—————————————————-

I was speaking with a fellow native English speaker who was studying linguistics and he said, “Man I’m so glad that I grew up speaking English because I wouldn’t want to have to learn it.”

Colonialism in the Americas and Africa, and the displacement of native languages, helped to put English on top, as well as the commercial dominance of Great Britain, followed by the U.S.

Were the international lingua franca decided by ease of learning and sonic aesthetics, Spanish could quite easily trump English.  Possibly a variety of other languages which I am not familiar with as well.  As is we have pronunciation changes you’re just supposed to “know” when other languages have marks for that and thousands of words with different meanings that sound similar to each other.  I just got off the phone with someone who misheard “three” as “RE” or “Brie”, and that’s a very understandable mistake with English.

No, Pinkie! Don’t discourage continuity! You’ll prevent more awesomeness like the season 4 finale!

Listen to Pinkie, Twi! Continuity brought us Crisis on Infinite Earths, 90s X-Men comics, and endless Legion of Superhero relaunches!  Continuity means MADNESS! View Larger

Because this has come up elsewhere in my feed…andreapoli:

Best headline.

While I’m glad that this is a headline, it’s also important to remember that Alex Jones (who founded this website) is a Conspiratorialist who thinks the Illuminati control the global economy and are responsible for our world wars (with the Illuminati being just the latest stand-in and a nicer way of saying ‘The Jews’).
Plus, Jones once called Angelina Jolie a ‘globalist whore’. 
So the point is, while it’s nice to see a website being honest and sticking it to Elliott Rogers, it’s also important to remember that the source where the story is from isn’t exactly a paradigm of rationality or women’s rights.

…thank you.  While I’m glad too that this headline exists, I really don’t want people giving Alex Jones’ site hits.(I have to admit, I am surprised that Infowars is this honest since usually Alex Jones responds to something like this with, “FALSE FLAG OPERATION BY CIA SEEKS TO DISCREDIT ALEX JONES.”) View Larger
