Yaaaas good good good.

Top five Finn/Rae moments:

Top five Rae quotes:
daredevil #191 is the roulette issue and it’s probably on of the best issues miller ever wrote. like, i tend to disagree with the common idea that frank miller’s dd is the best, but that issue is tops.
Yeah, the collective circle jerk over Miller’s DD is a bit much for me too. (Like, people try to pretend that Miller’s ish somehow started after DD, when really it’s always been there he just used to be a better writer so people got over it?). But even aside from that I GET why it’s iconic (it completely changed Matt as a character, and I have to admit that Born Again with a lot of help from Mazzucchelli is a pretty fantastic story even with it’s problems). I have some partialness to it b/c it was my first venture into DD, but it has its problems and I get sick of people pretending like it’s the end all be all of Daredevil.
But yeah Roulette is so good. And ACTUALLY it inadvertently lead to one of the few times I’ve been unhappy with Ellis’s writing. When he redid the Roulette scene in Thunderbolts he made Matt’s inner narration into a monologue. Which… isn’t how it was!
themanhattanprojects replied to your post: Ok ngl getting p. sick of the Matt/Peter shippers…
omg them expecting matt to run to peter whenever he faces the slightest difficulty in his life shows they have clearly never read a dd run before this one like wow
Yeah I just. This on top of people having a panel of Matt and Foggy and tagging it as a sign of MATT/PETER OMG THIS SHIP. Like.
I really mean it when I think that Matt/Peter are fine! They’re good friends, they have a nice chemistry and thinking they should make out is a-ok by me. But it’s NOT ok with me to ignore Foggy Nelson and I legit don’t understand how you can read any Daredevil comics (even just Waid’s run— we had an entire issue that was just Matt & Foggy goodness!) and pretend that Matt would turn to anyone else with this sort of problem. It’s what’s making this arc so good/devastating, that Matt has NO ONE ELSE TO TURN TO because the only one that he trusts with all of him is Foggy and Foggy is at the very core of the conflict! IT’S UPSETTING! IT’S REALLY SIMPLE?
But people are like oh poor Matt!!!!! Where is Peter call up Peter!!!!! And no. No. NO. That wouldn’t happen.
And ok I’m sorry but you can’t convince me that more people would be onto the Matt/Foggy marrieds train if Foggy were a thin dude like. That is ALSO frustrating to me, and maybe why I’m even more defensive. Not shipping Matt/Foggy is a w/e thing (sometimes I think I do it defensively, but sometimes I read these panels and I’m just like. I don’t even want you to bone I just want you guys to grow old and maybe realize that you are EVERYTHING to each other and hold hands and look at the sunset while having sweet kisses idk.)
Foggy Nelson 2 good for everyone, especially some of the Matt/Peter shippers in the tag APPARENTLY.
vejigante replied to your post: I just remembered that the next issue of Daredevil…
I hope it’s Milla, just to see if she has recovered.
Same. Like, seeing Elektra would be neat (and is a possibility since she’s going to be in T-Bolts soon), and of course there’s never too much Natasha in the 616, but.
The fuckery Brubaker pulled with Milla was just… pretty fucking awful. And it would be nice if we could see her recover from that.
I’d like for one of Matt’s old flames (of the ones that weren’t superheroes) to actually get to be ok.
maybe we’re being punk’d
I have dreams that it gets cancelled before going to stores (like the Thanos mini and the Doom mini from earlier this year).
It won’t happen but a girl can DREAM.
Wait what. I was out idk what’s going on
Marvel is putting out a new book with X-23 and a bunch of my other teen faves!!!!!!
It’s called Avengers Arena (which they admit to be a rip-off of Battle Royale/The Hunger Games)!!!!!!
It’s going to be a book about teens killing other teens I’m rly excited about it!!!!!!!!!!!
thereisaheroinallofus replied to your post: I would respond to the poster talking about Bucky…
“Natasha is not a prize to be won by the nice guy.” in what universe does anyone think that Bucky won her? Half the time he can’t believe his luck that she likes him.
Like. I guess the idea is that FANDOM is giving Bucky that mantle— he’s nice so he deserves her!!! Which I. Haven’t seen? Like, A) Bucky isn’t perfect and pretending he is detrimental but B) I actually haven’t seen anyone say that Clint is a bad guy? Even people criticizing the Clintasha ship?
I’m not going to pretend that every person in the fandom is perfect because I’m sure they’re not. I’m sure there are people that suck, although thankfully I haven’t had to spend much time with them.
“The entire Bucky/Natasha shipper fandom is built around “Bucky’s a nice guy and he DESERVES HAPPINESS SO MUCH AND NATASHA’S VAGINA IS THE ULTIMATE REWARD,” and that’s exactly what this bullshit is. No, Natasha is not a reward, and Bucky doesn’t deserve to win her for being a nice guy. ”
Relationships should never be about ~deserving one another. It’s about wanting one another, loving one another. If either one STOPS, then it’s time for the ship to go to the wayside. But as it stands, these are two people who love and care about each other, and the fact that this post completely ignores NATASHA’s feelings for Bucky (this is not… a one-sided relationship?) is… well, to be frank, kind of fucked up.
jeuxdeau replied to your post: it’s fucking embarrassing how much i like fractions twitter
no look i have to admit i like fraction too. tho possibly not in the way you do bc i have never seen the dude, but he is hit a lot more than miss for me & okay yes some of what he writes is rubbish but i don’t get people ragging on him all the time??
Yeah, I mean. Part of my attraction to Fraction (which is fun to say), I’ll admit is due to the fact that most of the comic writers are… not at all hot. So when one IS hot (to me, I should clarify!) I feel the need to highlight it!
And yeah. I mean I get that most people who are fans of Tony loathe his run. And that’s totally reasonable! (I can’t speak to it b/c I don’t care about Tony Stark and thus don’t bother with IIM!), but I do think that he can be a good writer. I think Defenders was a romp (RIP) and the first issue of Hawkeye was like a breath of fresh air. I don’t think he’s a hack, and I think writing off writers (especially in comics) is a tricky thing. Because MOST of my faves have written… really shit things! And if that was all I read by them I would think they’re hacks but they’re definitely not.
Plus I don’t know. He just seems like a pretty cool dude! And at a panel in Heroes he even checked his own privilege as a straight white dude! Which is WAY more than most comic writers.
I mean, basically disliking him for IIM is fine. (Also Fear Itself, but, I mean that has WAY more editorial sway and lbr here almost all events esp. at Marvel have been terribad). Or, really, disliking any of his series that you didn’t like for whatever reason is reasonable, w/e. But, like, pretending he’s the worst guy in the world/the worst writer at Marvel is sort of… silly, I think.
“I pretty much only ship Laura with ladies” GOD YES. I LOVE YOU AND FEEL THE SAME WAY.
It’s the right way to be, lbr.
EDIT: Mild spoilers for TDKR under the cut. I’m sorry!!!!
Again, I’ve learned to just avoid certain tags at this point. I gots enough nerdrage in my life kthnxbai
I have a weird attachment to it though! I met a number of people through that tag, I’ve tracked it for a long time. I just can’t say goodbye~
And also now it’s like a trainwreck and I can’t. Stop. Looking.
Currently trying to contain the urge to punch certain people through the computer. I fucking hate Loki-stans
But, like, the post seems to be throwing disdain towards the Loki problem, talking about how annoyed they are going to be when people on tumblr are talking about how The Winter Soldier is misunderstood.
But. Like. It’s not a case of his actions being misunderstood because Bucky is literally not in control of his own actions.
They probably won’t touch Daredevil all that much, but I want Punisher to be safe. And I don’t want them to fuck up Hope!
If I remember right they said nothing would change with DD unless the creative team wanted a ~directional change. Which was weird because with X-Factor they just said that nothing would really change. So idk. I doubt anything would change too much, regardless.
Wrt Punisher, I still stand by the fact that we’re having a HUGE event with him coming up, so I’d bet he’s safe (why have a crossover with a book that’s going to be canned anyway?)
But with Hope idek. Like, have we seen where her or any of the ~Phoenix Five are post AvX? (Scott Summers will be in All New X-Men, but it’s his Silver Age self, right?)
Like, is Marvel Now a soft reboot like I’m thinking? I’m being lazy and not reading up on it but like erryone involved says it’s not a relaunch and it’s just…wat. So very do not want rn. Also if Cap B is no longer a regular cast member of some title I will be PO’d cos we…
Discussion of the new Avengers Academy issue under the cut! Spoilers if you haven’t read the issue!!!
vengerturtle replied to your post: Isn’t it kind of hypocritical to admonish people for mixing universes in their thinking and then to say that you can’t ship Natasha/Clint in MCU!Marvel bc of Natasha/Bucky in 616!Marvel?
this issue is trying to tell someone “you can’t ship this because __ happened in the comics” just because YOU don’t ship it. trying to tear down a ship b/c of something that happened in another UNIVERSE is stupid and petty.
Yep. Basically this.
