Marvel Meme > One Mutant: Storm {aka. Ororo Munroe}

“I am a woman, a mutant, a thief, an X-Men, a lover, a wife, a queen. I am all these things. I am Storm, and for me, there are no such things as limits.” [from X-Men: Worlds Apart #4]

Every knee shall bow.

It really bugged me how, in one of Cracked.com’s latest articles, they put punk!Storm on their “Top-5 Most Inane Comic Book Character Re-Toolings” (or something similar) and called her Mr. T for having a mowhawk. >_>V

Comic Books Are Not for Members Only

enigmatic-doctor-scully:

  • There is a great deal of pretension in comic book fandom, and many will say you “aren’t a real fan” if you haven’t read such-and-such a comic. Bullshit. If you don’t know the entire history of the Green Lantern Corps. and someone gives you grief? Tell them to shut up and remind them that DC destroys so many earths/plotlines/histories so often that no one cares anymore. Do not feel like you must know the entire history of comic books and comic book characters to be a comic book fan.

  • Just because a title is popular or even if it may be well-written, you DON’T have to like it, and you can still be a comic book fan (FYI: well-known doesn’t always mean well-written *cough* a certain writer of a famous Batman title *cough*).

  • At the end of the day, a fan of comic books is someone who likes to read pieces of paper with pictures and word bubbles. Are you a person? Do you have a small, stapled together document with pictures, word bubbles, and onomatopoeia? Do you like it? Congratulations, you are a comic book fan!!!

  • If gritty isn’t your thing, enjoy some romance. If superheroes aren’t for you, read about angels, magicians, or mythology. If you don’t see comics that represent you, find some that do (though this one is hard because comics aren’t that wonderful at representation) and support them with your money. Don’t let the pretentious “gate-keepers” and the idea that “this is how it should be done because it’s been done this way for years” dictate what you do.

  • Gritty does not always mean good. Dark does not always mean intelligent. Comics can be silly, heartbreaking (Piper and Trickster anyone?), heartwarming (Jaime Reyes and his entire family), inspiring (Batwoman), etc. Find what speaks to you, know only what you need to know to enjoy the comic, and enjoy yourself.

It always struck me as “interesting” that this film is named after Batman and Superman when CLEARLY Wondy, Barda, and EsGee made the entire movie. Especially this fucking sequence right here.

(and by “interesting” I mean insulting and sexist)


On Marvel, Mandarin, and Marginalization

renamok:

lalalunascope:

Does the casting of Kingsley serve to perpetuate the stereotype that all Asian ethnic groups are interchangeable? Or does it simply cement Marvel Studios’ decision to shift the stereotypical bad guys of the comics from “yellow peril” to “Middle Eastern/South Asian terrorism”? (The first Iron Man film had the Ten Rings bad guy Raza, played by South Asian American actor Faran Tahir.) Rather than debating among ourselves about which Asian American or Asian actor should have the sad privilege to continue the legacy of the reviled Fu Manchu-esque Mandarin, or hand wringing about how Asian Americans don’t have much say in how to reinvent or salvage unforgivable stereotypes that have caused great harm to our communities, there are more pertinent questions we need to lob at Marvel.

Questions like: How did we end up with The Mandarin in a Marvel Studios movie before any Asian American lead heroes?

Or even just: Why isn’t Marvel really utilizing its pantheon of women heroes or characters of color?

“In a chat afterwards, Joe told me that he’d love to make a tentpole [Marvel] movie with a female lead, but that he really doesn’t think there is an actress right now who could carry it, or a character that would work either.”

ARE YOU FUCKING SHITTING ME? ARE YOU GODDAMN FUCKING SHITTING ME? DO YOU…I DON’T…WHAT…I JUST…EXCUSE ME AS I SMASH MY HEAD THROUGH A GODDAMN WALL. 

The best Goddamn choices for a female led movie would be Jessica Drew/Spider-woman (IT COULD WORK, DAMN IT. JUST LEAVE THE FUCKING SKRULLS OUT), Laura Kinney/X-23, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat (although she’d probably work best in a Spider-man movie…but if that horrible fucking Catwoman movie got made…the Black Cat can have her own), Monica Rambeau/Photon/Captain Marvel/Pulsar , Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, and CAROL MOTHERFUCKING DANVERS/Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel. I MEAN, SERIOUSLY? SERIOUSLY? NO CHARACTERS? NONE? If you think Carol Danvers couldn’t hold her own movie, you are fucking insane.

Also, they need to put Jan in a fucking movie. If there is an Ant-man movie, JAN NEEDS TO BE IN IT.

As for POC, two names stick out in my head: Luke Cage and motherfucking T’Challa. If they’re making a motherfucking Guardians of the Galaxy movie, THEY CAN MAKE A HEROES FOR HIRE MOVIE AND A BLACK PANTHER MOVIE. And they can have Jessica Jones in Heroes for Hire. Because she’s awesome. Yes, white female love interest, but hell…I’ll take any diversity. 

I just…I can’t even right now. I need to punch something.

Note: Some fans can’t get past the inherent sexiness that some superhero characters put on, and the trend of gender-swapping in superhero design really forces people take a second look at costume design. Artist Joe Phillips recently did a host of Marvel & DC superheroine costumes as if worn by males, and really innovated here in terms of making the costumes work on men.  – Chris A.

ok but how does siting like that even work.

Yes, Spiderman has sticky hands and feet.

I’m pretty sure he doesn’t ALSO HAVE A STICKY ASS. 

I just assumed it was calf strength but IDK.

I’d accept a sticky ass as canon *shrug*

I have these little spikes of female rage sometimes.

I have these little moments of, ‘really, we still have to listen to this, really?’  They’re usually quick.  They’re usually gone fast. 

I do wonder, however, why it seems like every single male I follow thinks that the “Hawkeye Initiative” has gone ‘too far.’  I don’t want to point out posts, because I respect every single one of these guys.  And honestly, I wouldn’t be following them if I didn’t want them to follow me.  I like their views, they’re definately entitled to their opinions.  I don’t think any of them are being made ‘uncomfortable’ by the intent of the redraws.

But when as a group a rational, intelligent, fandom savy group of guys goes, “well, it’s defeating the purpose if you sexualize men instead of sexualizing women,” I kind of wonder what they’re seeing that I’m not.

Boom.  That’s some hot stuff right there.

there are actual white heterosexual men actually complaining about the hawkeye initiative

wow

I was actually just about to comment on that.

Because really, if you’re “upset” or “offended” by this creative means of commentary on the comic industry as a whole, you should probably take a massive step back and reassess the reasons you’re “offended”.

  1. Is it because you’re uncomfortable seeing a man contorted into physically impossible poses for the sake of emphasizing his “assets”?
  2. Is it because you’re uncomfortable seeing your own sex objectified for the consumers of the opposite sex? (Generalizations, here. Since the number of queer comic fans is actually massive.)

Welcome to the life of female comic fans the world over.

Believe it or not, but despite the overwhelmingly persistent notion that “COMICS ARE FOR DUDES!!!”, we’ve been there from the beginning, and have only begun making our voices heard in recent decades because we’ve finally managed to eek our feet in the doors of the industry to produce some of the content.

The “Hawkeye Initiative” is not derogatory, nor is it intended to mock male-identified comic fans. It’s a creative-oriented commentary on the hilariously sexist industry that is the world of comics.

i don’t get why it’s okay for women to be upset when women are sexualised but if men are upset when men are issued the same treatment it’s damnable??

It’s a problem because this is something we live with on a day-to-day basis, and now that they are forced to confront it head on, they’re uncomfortable.

  • they’re uncomfortable because they don’t like being portrayed that way
  • they’re uncomfortable because it threatens ‘manliness’ and the identity of the straight male as it has classically been portrayed
  • they’re uncomfortable because they don’t want to admit that women are portrayed in a way that makes us uncomfortable
  • they’re uncomfortable because it’s hard for them to realize that women are oftentimes made uncomfortable in the exact same way almost every single day of our lives

They should be upset about this, and instead of turning it on women and blaming us for “taking away their rights” or similar, sexist bullshit, men should be able to own up to the problems women as a gender face, and recognize that changes need to be made.

The Hawkeye Initiative isn’t an attack on men. It’s putting men in the shoes of women around the world.

They don’t like it for the same reasons we don’t.

But, of course, instead of owning up to it, admitting that changes need to be made, helping us go about making those changes happen, there are more than a handful whining about how it’s unfair to them. Which, frankly, is like someone using a weapon in a fight, then complaining when their opponent takes out a weapon as well. If you’re going to fuck with someone’s rights as a human being, you better be prepared to be fucked with in return. People are held accountable for their words, actions, decisions, everything. And now that men are finally being held accountable for all the shit they’ve pulled throughout not only the decades, but the centuries, they’re upset.

Which is just too bad.

I’ve even seen people say that women are only using it as an excuse to see Hawkeye in scandalous, sexually appealing clothing—which is also ridiculous. If we wanted to see Hawkeye scantily-clad, we could just pick up a particular issue of Fraction’s Hawkguy. And just because we can pick up an issue and see that doesn’t mean that men and women are equal in comics—far from it! When men are naked or sexualized, it’s in a way that appeals to a macho-man fantasy. It’s a power trip. It’s asserting dominance, perhaps despite being armed in nothing but his own muscles. When women are naked or sexualized? It’s turning them into an object, a fantasy for men. I, personally, would like to see an athletically-built woman kicking ass without her breasts being the main focus of the spread.

That is what is empowering to me. Women in comics have a horrible rep, and while there are some comics taking initiative (DC’s Sword of Sorcery featuring Amethyst, Marvel’s new title Fearless Defenders) that’s not enough for a full-blown revolution. Before men and women can be equal in comics, the men buying the comics have to come to terms with the unwelcoming, degrading effects most comics have and do have on the perception of women. And only when men and women are equal in comics (which, newsflash, isn’t for men to decide) can men who complain about being sexualized and be taken seriously, because at that point, the treatment will be an anomaly, and unfair. As of right now? The dudebros of the world should be taking it as a wake-up call. If they want to stop feeling sexualized, they should stop sexualizing us in turn.

I broke down and watched The Dark Knight Rises.

I did like it, despite it being forever long and there were only scant sprinklings of people of color.

I will forever be salty that Naomie Harris wasn’t the Nolanverse Selina Kyle.

Instead of counting the numbers of each race why not just watch the film?

Instead of telling a PoC how they should interpret the media they consume, how about you use your brain and consider that the absence of people of color is a big deal to some people… especially people like myself who are sick to death of seeing film after film relegate us to bit players and sidekicks instead of recognizing that we are actually people and not props or prompts to promote the stories of white people?
