The Amazing Spider-man #529
The writers for the Spider-Man arc “The Other” made a glaring continuity error during the story; in one issue, the villain Morlun broke Mary Jane’s arm, but in the next issue her arm is unbroken. After the arc, J. Michael Straczynski wrote a scene in Amazing Spider-Man, where Peter Parker asked Tony Stark about MJ’s arm. Tony provided an elaborate Applied Phlebotinum explanation (involving injecting a material in MJ’s arm that acted like a cast but allowed her full movement of her arm). In the next frame, Peter and Tony appear to be looking directly at the reader with expressions on their faces as if daring the reader to challenge Tony’s explanation. The next frame, the scene is forgotten and they return to the main plotline.
Oh Billy, you look so small right there…
Superman’s sheer anger over Billy Batson’s situation is a sight to behold. Batman and Robin get away with it because he knows it’s the world’s best internship and that Bruce is willing to put out all the stops to protect him. But Billy? He doesn’t have anyone looking out for him. And that pisses off Superman more than anything.
Seriously, Clark’s face here
He is ready to kick the ass of whoever put this boy in this situation SO HARD
And they go on to tell us that girls suck at science and math. Fuck you misogyny.
what the fuck
also who discovered DNA
lol like last time i tried to assert rosalind franklin’s badassery, people were all NOOOO THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN IT WASN’T HER. SHE HELPED BUT SHE DIDN’T DO IT.
you’re right, she didn’t publish first BECAUSE SHE WAS BUSY MOVING OFFICES AND SOMEONE TOOK HER WORK WITHOUT HER PERMISSION AND SHOWED IT TO WATSON CRICK & CO. WITHOUT HER CONSENT AND THEY WENT AHEAD AND PUBLISHED WHILE SHE WAS BUSY MOVING SHIT.
2014 was one of those years that started out like “THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT!!!” and its halfway through and we have a war going on, a deadly disease has been spread, countless shootings have happened, racism is alive, more people have been leaving living things inside of hot cars, and robin williams is fucking dead
That’s true, but you know what else is true?
Over 60 girls and women captured in Nigeria have escaped. We are so much closer to curing HIV and AIDS. Uganda has decriminalized homosexuality (which was punishable by death). Two US states have legalized gay marriage this year (making it 19 states with marriage equality in total), and 12 have struck down their bans and are awaiting approval. We’re fighting racism and sexism as hard as ever, and more and more representation is available for us in the media. More young people are becoming aware of the great injustice in this world. This war is gonna end soon. An 8-year-old girl has become the first to beat brain cancer. Robin Williams is dead, but he left nothing but laughter and happiness and truth as his legacy. More and more soldiers are coming home to their families. More children are going to go college this year than ever, and that rate is only ever increasing. More girls in the Middle East are going to school, and standing up for their rights, thanks to Malala. Young girls are inventing more and more things that are fucking revolutionizing our world, from everywhere- even in places you don’t expect them to come from.
Today, millions of people will have babies, and kiss the loves of their lives, and get married, and hold hands, and sing in the shower, and have sex, and read books, and laugh (billions of people will laugh today), and tell secrets, and dance, and dream, and get promotions, and write, and draw, and fall in love.
I know it doesn’t seem like it. I know that you’re tired of this. But have faith. Things are getting better. Believe in humanity. We have come this far. We’re not gonna give up yet.
Darrien Hunt, a person of colour and a part of the cosplay community, was shot dead by police for walking around with a toy sword. http://www.dailydot.com/news/darrien-hunt-shot-by-police-while-cosplaying/
If anyone going to New York Comic Con would like to join me, I’ll be wearing a black ribbon on the sleeve of my cosplay each of the four days. It’s not much, but I figure it’s at least something that we as a community can do to show solidarity.
If anyone has any other ideas, please feel free to share them.
