Do you know what I like the most here? They’re women and they ARE NOT wearing super sexualized leather clothes or posing in impossible ways.

And, of course, the Captain America 40’s hair.

this is perfect.

THIS is how you do genderbends. There is NO reason to sexualize their costumes or their poses unless you’re going for a porn thing (perfectly acceptable). The only costume that’s really been changed at all is Bruce’s and all they’ve really done is exchanged the pants for a pencil skirt. Not a mini-skirt. A pencil skirt.

Also the fact that Nat’s costume is completely unchanged on the male version just goes to show how little the original is sexualized, despite what people think. It’s figure-hugging, yes. So is Cap’s, so is Clint’s, so is Tony’s for that matter. Hulk strips down to a pair of ripped shorts, for christ’s sake. It looks like her butt is emphasized because Scarlett happens to have a bangin’ ass that looks good in a cat-suit. If she had a flat butt, it would look flat.

Okay, I’m done.

This is abso-fucking-lutely brilliant. Especially everyone’s hair. 

The decision to keep Fury bald is just amazing. One thing about super-ladies that really bothers me is that they always have this mass of hair that is just begging to be grabbed by some assailant or getting in their face. Lady Thor’s braids are also fantastic, very true to Norse tradition, and Lady Tony’s hair is perfect.

I REALLY LIKE THE HAIR

LOVELY.

Nighthawk, guy or girl…I’d take it, either way.

Excuse the fuck out of me.

Some of us live in places where the only place you can buy comics is Barnes and Noble.

Some of us don’t like comics because of the decades of continuity, complicated multiple universes, and the fact that, while there is a huge amount of talent in the industry, there are countless comics that have been tainted by poor writing and artwork.

Some of us prefer films because it is more relevant to our interests.

Some of us don’t have the income or time to spare to enjoy comics.

You don’t need to have read the comics to appreciate or be a fan of a character.

This attitude of superiority from people who are “real fans” because they read the comics makes me rage so hard.

Maybe people would be more eager to read comics if comic fans were more inclusive.

Oh, you wanna throw in “You can’t like Loki because you never read the old Norse runes”, too?

It’s a matter of taste. Personally, I’ve never enjoyed reading comic books because I find them to be a) too expensive, b) hard to come by, and c) too complicated for me to understand what with all the new timelines, multiverses etcetera. It’s just not my cup of tea. I try to read as much as I can, but when I do, it’s usually stand alone graphic novels that exist in “their own universe”.

Saying “you’re not a real fan because you haven’t read the comics” is like telling someone “you can’t like banana ice cream because you’ve never tried bananas”. Oh, I’m sorry, never mind then, I’ll just stop liking this character, because clearly you’re much better than me since you’ve read the comic books. Do you want a parade, too? Maybe a monument? A T-shirt that says “I LIKED IT FIRST”? It’s just silly, and this kind of behaviour angers me so much. There’s no prize, you don’t win or gain anything by putting others down, so please, just don’t. It will only make you look silly in front of millions of fans who appreciate the character and story. Plus make you look like a huge ass.

Got a call this morning…

Chris, my darling boyfriend, has officially been accepted into SCAD's graduate program (he'll be going to the Atlanta campus)! Congrats, babe, I knew you'd get in!

But srsly. He’s one talented dude with awesome perseverance in world that’s increasingly focused on making $$$ versus doing what one loves for a living (I mean, sometimes, you can do both, but realistically, most people give up or switch plans because their passion was just too hard to follow).

Reminds me of a quote from a trusted source:

“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”

-Stephen King (who else?)

You’re making your dreams come true, babe. I’ve no doubt that if you keep this up, Blue & Blond will soar, and you’ll one day find yourself on the Adult Swim crew!

Love you, Chris! So proud of you. <3
