Just something to think about.
My little brother got an Avengers Lego set for Christmas
And we’re putting it together, everything’s going swimmingly. We get to the part where you have to put the stickers on. The stickers look all science-y, with charts and graphs and radar things, but then I see this one.
Why i am really pissed off (about gender roles and bad teachers)
This is my kid and she is 5
She wanted to take hulk with her to school today, and she was so happy that i took her pic. he love avengers, she watched the movie multiple times, and she always asks me for their action figures, especially from Black widow and Iron man but unfurtunally She only got the Hulk one that was from her older cousin (not only because i´m broke but also i cant find any black widow anywhere) but thats not why i´m really freaking mad…..
As soon as she got to the school her teacher looked at her, and with wide eyes and a disgusted voice and said
You, with a Hulk doll? well that is surprising
so i immediately stepped in and asked the teacher to please pay attention during play time, because i didnt want her to have a hard time with the boys,
after i picked her up the teacher told me that everything went ok. that my baby had gave the toy to the boys and went to play something else.. that struck me as really weird, because Nico was really exited about playing with her friend and his Capitan america. so on the way home i asked what happened
They took him away and didnt let me play with them because i´m a girl, they also trip me so i fell during P.E, but i didnt saw who did it.
She also told me that the teacher did Nothing, not even when she fell and cried….
But the worse part is that she spend all the 40 minutes back home hugging her hulk and givng it kissed and telling me how she didnt want to take it again to school because she doesn’t want her friends to be mean and take it away again, but my heart really broke when she asked me
Could you please take care of him tomorrow when i will be on school?
he is brave but i dont want him to be alone
Now we will sit to watch Avengers again with a bucked of pop corn and the hulk. but i know that will be a long long time before i manege to convince her that she doesn’t have to hide the fact that she loves this heroes, and that the problem is with the other boys not with her.
My daughter is seven and love comic books and superheroes. I can completely sympathise with this situation, and have seen this kind of bullying happen with her. It’s disgusting how, when you try so hard at home to avoid the bullshit of gender stereotyping, the school staff seems to think it’s fine and normal.
Give your daughter a big hug from us, and let her know that in my daughter she has a comic book sister over her in England that wants her to be a hero too. =)

"Loki’s actions weren’t entirely his own! Thanos and the Chitauri made him-"
Look, I don’t doubt that Thanos and so made it very clear ahead of time just exactly what would happen if Loki failed to obtain the Tesseract for him. And he has been operating since Thor with more than a few screws loose. But Loki chose to ally himself with them. He chose to act the way he did in pursuit of the Tesseract. He could have gotten the Tesseract without bloodshed or conquest.
But he didn’t. He chose to conquer Earth because he wanted power and control for power and control’s sake. He chose to rely on fear and humiliation and death. He chose to do this and he chose to do this all by himself. Taking away his autonomy and agency in this is to take away what makes Loki him a villain. It’s what makes Loki Loki.
SERIOUSLY FANDOM STOP TRYING TO MAKE HIM INTO A VICTIM
THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO THINK HE IS
"How come Bruce didn’t have the Hulk under control on the carrier???"
Because he was in a daze. During the attack he must have bumped his head or something which probably frenzied the Hulk.
If he didn’t get put in a daze he probably would have been able to keep Hulk under control.
Actually, I think it was Loki’s sceptre that affected him and everyone else. If you watch the scene with them all together in the lab, they’re all becoming more agitated and aggressive towards each other, which I believe is due to the influence from the sceptre and part of Loki’s plan to seed mistrust between the heroes.
more Capt. America TFA helmets stenciled…straps getting added this weekend…..go to www.reevz666.com for info
Just having thoughts, but how cool would a Daredevil cowl made up like this with the chin strap and a more realistic look be
That would be pretty awesome
I think bringing more realism to human superheroes, like Daredevil, is always good thing! =)
Hawke Barton & The Widow
Hawke Barton can’t remember a time when he wasn’t one of the Iron Marshals. He’d patrolled so much of the world over the years that he found it hard to settle now, so great was his wanderlust. His bow was feared from Latveria to M’hattan and never had an oathbreaker escaped once Hawke was on their trail… Not until The Widow.
Asha Ro’Manoff had been the principle wife of Manoff Greywolf, Chieftain of the Greywolf barbarian tribe that lived in the snows beyond the Spine. That was until a Latverian war band had invaded their lands, bringing death to Asha’s kin & tribe with weapons of steel and magic, searching for “The Third Power”. With their magic the war band enchanted the Greywolf tribe, causing them to tear each other apart as feral beasts might, only riding into the tribal lands once most of the people lay dead or dying. Asha escaped into the wild lands along the Spine, but continued to exist under the curse of the enchantment; robbing travelers when her mind was lucid enough, and simply killing them the rest of the time.
Tales of this wild beast reached the Iron Marshals and Lord Stark had dispatched Hawke to bring an end to the tale, since he had lived for many years along The Spine before taking the Marshals’ hood. He hunted Asha, wounded her, and tracked her back to her home; a cave deep within the Dreaming. There he intended to kill her, as per his orders, but in the flickering of his torch he saw her paintings on the walls. Every member of her lost tribe had been drawn there, lost in her madness but not forgotten. Lowering his bow, Hawke made his decision.
Hawke & The Widow are now inseparable. She believes she owes him a soul-debt, for all the nights and days he stayed with her, using his patience and charms to drive the curse from her mind. She is fiercely protective of him, as he is of her, and they travel together as agents of the Iron Marshal to Latveria in search of the magic to undo her curse and end reign of The Doom Lord, Vik Torvon, forever.
Accompanying them is the spirit of Nicho, the last of the Furies, a surly warrior who once battled The Doom Lord and lost, his soulless body now residing in Tornvon’s citadel, serving as one of his elite guard.
Brought together by acts of violence. Bound together by oaths of vengeance.
