It's Gonna Be A Thing

I'm a Video Editor, Comedian, Writer and Nerd all wrapped inside a chocolate coating.




follow me on Twitter for more indignation about comic culture and bad puns.

They do realize people are usually referring to the comics, not the movies?

#where there’s an all female mutant team. a female muslim superhero. a female thor. a black captain america.#meanwhile dc is like ‘wonder woman isn’t a feminist.’

you mean like DC which has two prominent characters right now named “Superman” who are black? Or how the Batfamily has had leads that range from black man to lesbian former soldier to an upcoming series where the two leads are women of color? Where about half of the batbooks are led by people who aren’t white dudes? Or how there’s been a team of all women in the DCU for the past 15 years and even had a TV show based on the team? where DC has 7 female writers to Marvel’s 3?

Everyone fawns at Marvel for their progressiveness but the only thing they have is better PR




People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

This is 1000% more motivating than every preachy “real writers write every day” post on all of Tumblr.


I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
