Investigative journal entry, day 4: Kate has gone to the high hills cemetery every day this week. It’s obvious why. I know the look of someone visiting a family grave.
Jaime Reyes, DC’S Blue Beetle and basically their answer to Spidey, has an entire cast of supporting family and friends. He’s also a POC and a teenager.
Marvel: the entire REASON Miles exists is to bring the Spidey mythos into the modern age… that whole ‘tragedy makes heroes’ thing is tired as fuck. Miles didn’t need any further reason to be Spider-Man (especially after the events of Spider-Men) and he most CERTAINLY didn’t need more conflict over BEING Spider-Man, what with his uncle and father already being casualties in direct relation to that…
Did you really have to take his mom? Did you really have to do that? Did you think that was wise? Was it edgy? Was it necessary to the plot?
I just… For some reason I got to thinking about this today and could not let go of it. It breaks my heart on so many levels.
Also, I find it interesting that she was the victim of ‘accidental’ gunfire when in this same series Miles looked like this:
I’m cosplaying Amanda Waller from the Justice league universe and my friend is Superman!
I’m so excited about the new superman movie! Alexander Rae is one of my favorite cosplayers!
Can I just say how cool it was that both of these superheroines’ personalities and powers were explored in this episode? And how well it was done?
Starfire was not shamed for being emotional. Her powers come from her emotions.
Raven was not shamed for suppressing her emotions. Her power requires amazing control.
They both. Work. They are both different kinds of strength, and they are both heroic and powerful and good. And they each learned from the other, and helped each other out by seeing from each others’ perspective, and finding the value in their differing approaches! Wow!
Fuck yes, this is how you write super-ladies, okay. There’s more than one way to be a “strong female character.” There’s all different kinds of strength. Why don’t more people GET this?
Sylver, I love you.
