oh man, guys, oh man
One of the most close-knit fandoms in comics has rallied around a character who’s only recently found her way to the front lines.
I wish I’d had like 8000 words for this, because Carol Corps blows my mind. It’s the first time I’ve seen a truly positive-sum fan community—a group that is all about sharing the joy and inspiration they get from this character, and celebrating the myriad of ways people find to engage with her. Fan after fan told me that they’d gotten into Captain Marvel because someone else called, lent them books, told them how much the character and community had grown to mean, and invited them in.
Look: I love the hell out of Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan, but they’re not why I finally bought myself some Optimystical dog tags at that show: Carol Corps is what inspires me again and again to keep caring about superhero comics, to believe they—and the community around them—can change for the better, and to hold them to that standard. You guys take my breath away.
Aaaaaand my good mood is over.
okay but can you imagine like
a week after your truck gets stolen out of the goddamn mall parking lot, you get a knock on the door and there’s fucking Captain America standing there. Says he’s here about your goddamn truck. And for a moment you wonder if he started working for the police now that Shield took a dive, but you don’t say so, you just nod when he describes your truck to you, license plate number, make, model and color, all to a tee.
And then the weirdest thing happens (weirder than Captain America just showing up at your front door). Captain America starts looking bashful. And then he tells you your truck was lost ‘in the line of duty’. You must still look a little awestruck because he elaborates; he’s the one who took your truck.
Captain America fucking stole your goddamn truck out of the goddamn mall parking lot.
And he’s going to pay for a new one. And he’s very, very sorry.
"So the girl is as clever as she is pretty.”
Those glasses are amazing and you look ADORABLE.
Thank you! I got them online for pretty cheap and am thinking about buying them in blue. They’re super nice for only costing like $20.
I LOVE CAPTAIN AMERICA WINTER SOLDIER BUT I SWEAR TO GOD IN CAP3 I BETTER GET NATASHA’S BACK STORY BECAUSE IF ALL OF THE WORLD IN MCU KNOWS ABOUT SHIELD AND THE THINGS NATASHA DID THEN I THINK WE DESERVE TO KNOW AS WELL. I WANT THE RED ROOM. I WANT TO SEE DREAMS OF BALLET AND GETTING TRAINED BY THE WINTER SOLDIER (i swear to god they better include something about that because one encounter where he almost killed her is not enough) AND “CHOOSE THE GRENADE OR THE GUN” AND I WANT HIM SNEAKING THROUGH HER WINDOW AND RUSSIA AND ALL THAT SHIT. MEETING HAWKEYE AND SWITCHING SIDES FOR SHIELD. BETTER YET, GIVE ME A GODDAMN BLACK WIDOW MOVIE AND THROW HAWKEYE AND BUCKY IN THERE. PROBLEM FUCKING SOLVED.
That stasis tube we found … It’s just like the one they used to put you in between your missions. I saw you in it once and it scared the hell out of me.
I think from now on you let me worry about my soldiers, little Natalia…
Saturdays= time to organize my comics and figure out which issues I’m missing and which tradebacks I still need because while digital is convenient, nothing beats hardcopies. Realization: I love my comic book ladies. #marvel #comics
