wolverine fisting you when suddenly
Give me this right this instant.
Dad, come on, what have we said is the most important thing?
I have tried family. It does not work for me.
oh look it’s the leader of the free world breaking the cardinal rule of chipotle
"Retract your arm immediately, Mr. President"
do not fall in love with people like me. i will take you to mansions, and satellites, and monuments, and kiss you in beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like metal in your mouth. i will deflect a bullet into your back and take your sister with me. and when i leave you paralyzed on the beach you will finally understand, why i’m named after a giant magnet.
I wish writers in fandom would take note of this, too.
No more lies. No more secrets.
Secrets are my life.
things that are more important to me than they should be:
eleven year old james potter and his massive crush on minerva mcgonagall that would eventually flower into massive respect for minerva mconagall, but he doesn’t know that yet
twelve james potter accidentally confessing that his best mate his a werewolf—then trying to oblivate his parents—then calming down when he realizes they won’t care but not resting until the vow secrecy
thirteen year old james potter naming his new racing broom—a reward for getting on the quidditch team—after one of the ladies from sirius’s dirty muggle magazine
fourteen year old james potter working through complex, dangerous, advanced magic and learning how to turn his body into animal to help his best mate
fifteen year old james potter james potter and his quidditch talent and his quidditch ‘routines’ that were definitely not superstitions and his always-shined captain’s badge
sixteen year old james potter doodling the initials of the girl he fancies on the corner of every parchment and scratching them out because it’s such a ponce thing to do
seventeen year old james potter being the only one shocked at his head boy appointment and not at all shocked when lily asks him out
eighteen year old james potter being a noble bastard and doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do
nineteen year old james potter fighting in a war and being a husband and riding on the back of his best mate’s motorbike and freaking out because he is going to be a father, but accepting the responsibility, even though it scares him to death
twenty year old james potter learning how to become a dad and not realizing that you could love something so little so much
twenty-one year old james potter never doubting his friends, any of them, even for a moment
This is the realest shit
Ya know something interesting about the Marvel/DC ‘rivalry’ on tumblr?
Everyone acts like DC is this super regressive company compared to Marvel when DC really did more progressive stuff first and is still doing so.
Women as heroes?
DC’s had Wonder Woman as one of their three major heroes forever, but everyone ignores that because “But she doesn’t have a movie yet” (more on that later)
While Marvel can claim the first black hero in comics with Black Panther, DC actually had heroes talking explicitly about race with John Stewart and Hal Jordan, and did a lot of issues with progressiveism and liberalism vs convsativism in the Green Arrow/Green Lantern series (including a black person calling out Hal on how little he did to fight oppression on earth as he did the rest of the universe), and Green Arrow and Hawkeye arguing politics was a common thread of their time on the JLA together.
Black Lightning was the first African-American superhero with no criminal record (Luke Cage did get his powers in prison, it’s kinda stereotypical)
DC itself actually funded and published Milestone comics, a comics company entirely devoted to more diverse comics. If you’ve ever heard of Static you owe DC comics.
Marvel has never had anything even remotely equivalent.
When it comes to LGBT stuff, DC comics had a lesbian Batwoman and a lesbian woman taking over from a male hero in The Question.
While not a hero explicitly DC has a transwoman supporting character in Batgirl. (And I’m not even counting the trans characters in Vertigo books.)
It has Alan Scott being gay inthe Nu52 continuity,
I know Grace Choi was bisexual pre-reboot (I don’t know the current status)
Had a gay black teen hero in the Superboy & the Ravers comic in the 90s, as well as the character of Obsidian who was a major supporting character in the JSA.
The idea of characters of color or a different gender taking the place of legacy characters is nothing new for DC.
Like I mentioned, a lesbian Latin@ became the Question, there was an asian woman hero Doctor Light, a black woman Doctor Midnight, a Latina became the new Wildcat.
Now I mentioned I’d get back to movies later on and, let’s look at DC & Marvels movies in terms of ethnicity here, most notably the recent casting rumors.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson basically said he’d be playing Shazam.
Shazam, a previously white hero, played by a Black & Samoan man.
Aquaman, if rumors are to be believed, will be played by Jason Momoa.
Aquaman, a white blonde haired, blue eyed hero, played by a Samoan man.
Meanwhile over at Marvel….Well Falcon and Rhodey get to exist, but they’re up to this point still just little more than sidekicks to the white heroes in the movies.
Marvel makes a movie about a superhero team and goes “Yeah, everyone is still white as they were in the 1960s.”
DC looks at their superhero team and says “We need to make the team more diverse, even if it means changing the race of the heroes” and people act like they’re some super regressive company.
I’m fine with folks preferring one company over the other.
I’m fine with folks being excited Marvel is having legacy characters change race and/or gender with who gets to pick up the legacy.
But as a lifelong comic fan it’s kinda annoying to see people praising Marvel as super progressive for doing shit DC did in the 80s and still does to this day.
Especially when with Marvel it’s coming across far more as a blatant publicity grabs.
I’M A HUGE LESBIAN
