Fake death, cheap resurrections, and dealing with real grief: a heartbreaking take on the often emotionally-manipulative use of character death in popular culture.

Killing Spock at the end of Wrath Of Khan works, because the characters, and the movie itself, treat it as real. Contrast that with the cowardly handling of Kirk’s “death” in Star Trek Into Darkness, with J.J. Abrams and crew milking the moment for fake emotion while desperately foreshadowing that everything’s going to be okay. For Abrams and his writers, death is little more than a screenwriter’s tool to evoke emotion, and that cavalier attitude toward one of the universal human experiences makes everything about his film feel hollow.

Aang’s all grown up

I really enjoyed this.

Our portrayals of adult Aang up to this point had always been so serious. We though this was a perfect opportunity to show that deep down he was still the same fun-loving trickster. P.S. Ryu drew both of these, something like 9 years apart!

oh my god.

he’s spinning sushi.

He’s spinning the sushi that the guy who took that picture named after him.

Why'd you call Kevin Feige a douche canoe?

Because, anon, he is. And that’s the kindest name I do call him. I see him flip flopping about whether Black Widow is getting movie. He  “very much believe[s] in doing it” in concept. “I hope we do it sooner rather than later,” he added at the time, while simultaneously pointing out that Marvel’s ongoing successful franchises make finding slots for new characters and concepts challenging.

Well, as the fucking President of Marvel, I don’t know who else has the power to push a Falcon, Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Luke Cage, fucking anybody other than a fucking white guy into the spotlight.

People didn’t think Guardians of the Galaxy was going to be good. I was skeptical as fuck before the first promo aired but you know what? It was awesome. So, why the fuck can’t they do that for a woman or POC film?

Marvel is quite diverse when you’re talking about comics but you wouldn’t know that if you just followed MCU. 

Nobody didn’t even know about guardians of the galaxy and still went to see it.
