Just lovely work.

"There’s never been a more frustrating time to be a socially progressive fan of Marvel Comics. Not because its many titles are conservative or hateful — just the opposite, in fact. Marvel’s printed superhero books are more ethnically diverse, feminist, and queer-positive than they’ve ever been. The frustration comes because, even as Marvel’s printed offerings are looking forward, its popular live-action movies and TV shows feel like relics from a lily-white, male-dominated, straights-only past. It’s time for Marvel to push its onscreen output into the 21st century by learning from its own source material."

Marvel’s Diversity Problem — Vulture

Reblogging because a few of my followers have been pointing this out recently.

Where were my women who were forced to learn that with great power comes great responsibility? Where were my awkward school girls who were just trying to graduate high school when they found they didn’t need their glasses anymore, but could lift a school bus one-handed? Where were the funny best buddies? It’s not as though we can all be Lara Croft. Yet for a long time, she was all we had: if you were a woman, you had your place, on one end of the spectrum or the other. Why, I still ask every single time the movie is on TV, is it Kick-Ass and not Hit Girl?

Then the recent Marvel films arrived. Pepper Potts came along in her business-wear and skyscraper Louboutins and was unstoppable in her rise to CEO of Stark Industries. Black Widow slunk onto the scene and showed us that we don’t need to choose between sexy and dangerous. Jane Foster, the astrophysicist genius, still blushed when confronted with Thor’s overwhelming good looks, just the way the rest of us would, while Darcy Lewis was as concerned about her iPod as she was about the faceless government organisation behind its theft.

Maria Hill reached the very top of the male-dominated SHIELD organisation, Sif is a fully-fledged goddess of war, and Peggy Carter was a sharp-shooting, red lipstick-wearing female officer at the frontline of WW2. These aren’t the cardboard cut-out women of action movies gone by. They’re more than the girlfriends or relatives or unobtainable dream girls, more than pawns for a hero’s man-pain. They’re definitely more than a gorgeous yet robot-like tomb raider with a penchant for dressing in clothes that are so often inappropriate for the weather.

They’re you, me. The boss you want to be someday, the academic your friend aspires to. The student who just wants to listen to music and have fun. The women who can do battle, run Fortune 500 companies, wield tasers and drive questionably. Girls who can show fear but fight against the bad guys anyway, who flirt just for fun. The brainwashed Russian superspy assassin. (OK, so maybe not that last one. Then again, we do all have that one friend we wonder about.)

Oh god. I’m actual Dr. Strange.

I saw this, and I thought “Hey, they missed Hawkeye”  so I grabbed a map to find Bed-Stuy, which I thought was just near where all the others were, not knowing American cities AT ALL  Then I found out that Bedford-Stuyvesant is all the way over there *vague arm waving into distance*  and I was sad.  But I added an arrow anyway, because Hawkeye will Mess You Up  if you try anything around there, so it should probably be on the map. *nods*

everyone who rights nyc based fic should see this EVERYONE








Artist Appreciation: Phil Noto’s Hank Pym’s Photo Archive. 

This is one of my favorite projects by an artist. Not only is each of his works beautifully detailed, but Noto also seems to turn these fictional superheroes into real life people. I love the use of actual dates in order to show us a glimpse into the real lives of these characters. I feel like I would see this “photographs” in old issues of TIME Magazine or something. Fantastic.

Previous Phil Noto posts: Havok and Polaris, Betsy Braddock (1983), and Winter Storm (1978).

I love this so much

He’s so great at making them real. 

Oh wow, these are so lovely.

I want a coffee table book of this.

Lovely. I agree: would love to have a whole book of these on my coffee table. No story necessary. Paging Marvel - can’t you guys plleeeeeezze make this happen?

I was not prepared for how this would make me feel: it’s not just incredibly cool, it’s surprisingly emotional.
