Avengers: MCU and EMH.
Pronounced "ska-lya." Champion navel-gazer, veteran pseudo-fictioneer. Expect dinosaurs (and other paleobeasties), aquatic life (the weirder the better), Doctor Who (all sorts), Spider-Man (original flavor) and whatever else takes my fancy. 95% reblogs, 5% pointless text posts.
I try to tag for common triggers, but don't hesitate to ask if you need something added.
Some of these are a bit overdesigned, but I really like Ant-Woman and Spider-Woman. The juxtaposition of Peter’s hair (humanizing) versus the multiple eyes (de…humanizing, although that’s not really the word) is really interesting.
From the Hank Pym Photo Archives- Avengers Press Day “Tony thought it would be a good idea to invite some of the press over to Stark Mansion to highlight some of the work we were doing as the Avengers. I took this photo during an interview with a team from The Daily-something-or-other. I do remember the reporter asking us what we thought about other heroes’ roles in the country’s affairs. Apparently their city had, as the woman reporter put it, ‘A one-man Avengers team.’ “
I wish Tony would dress like that in Iron Man: Armored Adventures it would make so much more sense than what he wears now.
COMIC BOOK APPRECIATION: DANIEL CLARKE
It’s unreal how good his stuff is.
Oooh, I’d only seen the Namor and Spidey ones before. Love this!
SDCC-exclusive Avengers Mini Mighty Muggs.
Love the expressions, love that Giant Man appears to be just a regular size Mugg, hate that Comic Con always gets the best toys.
Also, it’s a pity there’s no extra-mini Wasp Mugg.
Remember how Tom Brevoort made this big thing a few months ago about how diversity is important but teams like the Avengers need to be composed of A-list heroes first and foremost? And there was a lot of discussion about how this kind of attitude perpetuates the overwhelming white/straight/cis/male/etc-ness of superheroes, because not only does it fail to take the historical disparity of majority vs. minority characters into account, but it never gives less established characters to become A-list in the first place?
Yeah, remembering that discussion right now. This is a “founding Avenger” themed set, clearly, so where the eff is Wasp?
World War Hulk: X-Men #3You want to talk about suffering? Look around you. Her name was Laurie Collins. All she wanted was for people to like her for who she was. She got shot in the head, she was sixteen. This is Brian Cruz, he loved his powers and being here. He lost it all on M-Day and he lost his life, too, along with forty-one other kids. Because some mutant-hater blew them up. Like your wife was blown up.
Don’t tell me we haven’t suffered like you and don’t ever tell us not to fight for what we have left! You’re trying to do to us exactly what your enemies did to you. Destroy what happiness we’ve managed to find in a world that hates us, for something the Professor didn’t even do! Maybe we can’t stop you, but don’t you dare expect us to fight any less hard than you!
Aaaah Cess, this is why I love you so much.
