Another Hawkeye Initiative because I was bored.
The other gents got in on the fun. I have to say that Thor and Cap are probably the sauciest.
I AM CONTRIBUTING ART.
For the Hawkeye Initiative. Because it is beautiful.
Apologies for shitty picture; i don’t have a scanner in my dorm.
How to fix every Strong Female Character pose in superhero comics: replace the character with Hawkeye doing the same thing.
We [Fraction and his wife, Kelly Sue DeConnick] were pregnant at the time, and while I was out there I started to realize that if I had a daughter, there would come a day when I would have to apologize to her for my profession. I would have to apologize for the way it treats and speaks to women readers, and the way it treats its female characters.
I knew that if we had a daughter, because I know my wife and I know the kind of girl she wants to raise and I know the kind of girl I want to raise, she was going to look at what I did for a living and want to know how the fuck I could stomach it. How could I sell her out like that?” Fraction continued. “That conversation is still coming, and I’m bracing for it in the way that some dads brace for their daughter’s first date or boyfriend. I became acutely aware that I had sort of done that thing that lots of privileged hetero cisgendered white dudes do. ‘I’m cool with women, and that’s enough.’ It’s not enough. It’s embarrassing to say, because we somehow have attached shame to learning and evolving our opinions, culturally, but I became aware that there was a deficiency of and to women in my work, and all I could do at that moment was take care of my side of the street.
Writer Matt Fraction on his role on expanding the profile of female characters in the Marvel Universe.
aww yisss, mothafucking Batman… by Mike Mignola!
Oh OF COURSE Gwen Stacy just runs around her internship that she TOTALLY HAS as a high school student at this BIG FANCY SCIENCE RESEARCH FIRM in a goddamn miniskirt and thigh highs. Yup. That is great and realistic and it does not annoy me at all.
WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT GWEN STACY I WILL CUT YOU
Oh, I’m sorry that the vaguely improbable plot point of a brilliant teenager having an internship at a big research firm is tainting your highly realistic movie about a guy getting basically magic powers from being bitten by a radioactive spider and fighting a guy that turns himself into an anthropomorphic lizard with anger issues.
Also, what does her wearing short skirts and thigh highs have anything to do with anything? She can wear whatever she wants; that doesn’t mean that she’s not intelligent and badass. Also, if it were unprofessional of her to dress that way then I’m pretty damn sure someone at the facility would’ve told her not to, soooo… What? How is it realistic for a guy fighting criminals with bats and knives and guns to wear a skintight spandex suit with no padding?
If male superhero costumes were like female superhero costumes.
Also. Omg, Spiderman!
one time when i was high i got really upset because bats eat spiders and what if batman comes into contact with spiderman what will happen will spiderman be okay
