We are the WTF Comics Club, and we are Captain Marvel!

The first meeting was a smash. Looking forward to next month, when we’ll be talking about Greg Rucka’s Batwoman: Elegy and eating delicious donuts.

See you there!

Oh gosh look at us we are so kick-ass and adorable simultaneously.

Live-tweet recap of our first meeting! Thanks to buddhastew for volunteering as official tweeter!

Haha, I sound like the discussion section at the back of an Oprah Book Club book.

I very much believe in doing it. I very much believe that it’s unfair to say, “People don’t want to see movies with female heroes,” then list five movies that were not very good, therefore, people didn’t go to the movies because they weren’t good movies, versus [because] they were female leads. And they don’t mention “Hunger Games,” “Frozen,” “Divergent.” You can go back to “Kill Bill” or “Aliens.” These are all female-led movies. It can certainly be done. I hope we do it sooner rather than later. But we find ourselves in the very strange position of managing more franchises than most people have — which is a very, very good thing and we don’t take for granted, but is a challenging thing. You may notice from those release dates, we have three for 2017. And that’s because just the timing worked on what was sort of gearing up. But it does mean you have to put one franchise on hold for three or four years in order to introduce a new one? I don’t know. Those are the kinds of chess matches we’re playing right now.

Kevin Feige, continuing to say a whole lot of nothing about a Marvel Studios female-led film. He admits that it “can be done”, but his new excuse is that he is making too many movies to make one of them about a woman. (via fuckyeahblackwidow)

Raise your hand if you’re willing to wait 3-4 years on GotG 2 or fucking Ant Man to get a Black Widow movie.

Raise both hands if you’re willing to wait on Thor 3 or Cap 3 in order to get a Black Widow movie and a Captain Marvel movie.

This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious.

Join me.

The only one you need to bother watching, okay.
