A summary of The Avengers

Robert Downey Jr. singing at Sting’s 60th birthday party (for real if you haven’t heard him sing you need to listen to this right now!)
You know when you have that flatmate at uni, who’s rude, selfish, arrogant, thinks he knows everything, always steals your food and just an all round dickhead?
He was just telling me I had a typical student car, then took it back when I told him it was green and said he didn’t like it and it was an awful choice and my car was ugly.
One of my other flatmates then had a go at him for being rude to me.
Finally he got some backlash. I love her for that!
Assimilation. Misogyny. Erasure. Dismissal of PTSD. Negation of identity. Fridging of women. Segregation. Child and spousal abuse. Hyper-sexualized teenagers. An abuse victim as the butt of a joke. Prejudice.
I could go on.
What do all these things have in common? If you said they’re all terrible things, and they shouldn’t be used as plot devices in writing, you’d be right. But more than that, these things are all present (and then some) in the Marvel comics currently being written by Rick Remender.
“But wait!” I hear you cry. “I haven’t heard anyone talking about this guy! These all seem like horrible things; shouldn’t people be talking about how bad they are?”
You’re right, people should. But they aren’t. And when they do, they get ignored.
So what’s Rick Remender been writing? Some out-of-the-way series, right? If nobody’s talking about it, the comics he’s writing can’t be very important, can they?
Rick Remender is the writer of both Captain America and Uncanny Avengers.
And he needs to stop.
"I thought of texting you
"good morning, I can’t sleep"
and then I remembered
that you are on a journey
which I am not a part of
and that’s okay
I can’t sleep” (X)
This is important. Stop big cat hunting. This literally is making me cry.
The way the lion tries to shut out the light…
:Why would you shoot it?
I cannot think of any reason to kill a Lion. You don’t eat it. It’s a waste.
That buzzfeed post (where the photos are from) was absolutely perfect to explain how fucking horrible and pointless and just so irresponsible this woman is.
Since then people - who are just as enraged as me but know a bit more - have explained to me that she is allowed to hunt on the territory BECAUSE she gives tuns of money to the state… which is also money for preservation?
The mind, it boggles it.
This world we live in can be so mindblowingly fucking stupid, I can’t even.
This just in: he’s figured out where the laser comes from.
Adi Granov: Perfection
i think not
Perfect casting is perfect.
“Some actors just click with each other and form an unbreakable partnership.”
Reblogging again for That ↑↑
like all of these memes make sense except for the Winter solider one.
Winter Soldier’s the villain in the movie? Why not make him the villain in the tie-in comic?
Gil, I think the problem is more that people wanted a modern Winter Soldier book with Bucky as the focus, not as the villain of a book bearing his name.
But really, Remender’s a douche even without that.
