austriea:

man you know what I want? a superhero series where they have powers that 100% contradict their personalities. a fishermans daughter who lives by the sea, swims every day, learns that she can control fire. a boy who’s mortified of heights but realizes he can use antigravity and hates it. someone who was bitten by a dog as a child, suffers extreme fear around animals, can now communicate with them. they’re all disgusted by their powers.

Garth. The character you’re looking for is Garth.

I mean, can you get much more “powers not suited to their personality” than an Atlantean kid who’s afraid of fish?

My cover for issue 2 of Ms. Marvel. Colours by Matt Wilson, done at the desk next to mine in my studio! 

That’s a beautiful cover! Loving the use of light and silhouette. It’s really striking!

Well this looks hardcore, I wonder what they are looking at…

Oh, right, Sue destroying people who are twice her size (y’a know, like She-Hulk or The Thing). Always nice ~

I knew there was a reason I liked Sue.

Under the cut because this is long, by the way, it’s a DickBabs moment, but not a particularly happy one, so warnings there, but anyone who is knowledgable about Babs and Dick’s relationship, I’d like your opinion on whether it was OOC of Dick or not.

Devin Grayson, for some reason, LOVES to write Dick as callously oblivious and Babs as perpetually annoyed. To me, that characterization of Dick reached its absolute point of unbelievability in this scene, from Nightwing #85:

Okay, first of all, I have issues with the way Babs is characterized here too, but that’s an entirely separate post.

But Dick, just… no. Babs basically never voices that kind of naked insecurity over her disability, and whether you consider it in-character for her here or not, there’s no doubt that if she did, Dick would immediately take notice and respond appropriately to reassure her. The way he brushes her off here is so cruelly insensitive to her feelings, it just makes me wince.

I mean, just compare that to how well he reads and responds to her insecurities in Nightwing #38 (written by Chuck Dixon), for example:

Now, Dick’s not perfect, and it’s certainly plausible that he could be too distracted or overworked/tired to read Barbara’s (or anyone else’s) mood correctly every once in a while. It’s also perfectly plausible that this could lead to him being accidentally insensitive now and then. I can also see him realizing Babs was in a bad mood and thinking being silly would cheer her up, but having it misfire.

But Dick is, as a rule, a pretty sensitive guy, and he’s good at reading people. Especially someone he’s as close to as Babs. Unless there was something pretty major distracting him, he’d likely realize his mistake pretty quickly in either of those situations, switch into serious mode, and talk things out properly with her. The way Devin Grayson just writes him as obliviously trampling all over Barbara’s feelings all the time often feels false to me.

The fact is, the way Devin Grayson writes their relationship, you almost feel like Dick doesn’t really understand Babs (however well he might think he does), and Babs may love Dick but she doesn’t really like him all that much. Neither of which is the way I see their relationship, nor the way other writers have portrayed it.

What’s particularly frustrating about Devin Grayson’s writing is that she’ll get it so completely right one moment, and then so utterly wrong the next. She’s a good (if problematic) writer, and her characterization can be wonderfully spot-on at times. But issues like this keep me from really appreciating the way she writes Dick and Babs.

There is a real actual Spiderman comic where he pretends this is his power and the bad guys drop their weapons and give up. XD And it makes me happy. 

Here it is:


No one can ever say spiderman is not the best superhero of all time.
No one.

Just imagined Sinqua Walls as Batwing and my brain shorted out.

Why isn’t there a show starring Sinqua Walls? It must be that most people have never had the pleasure of knowing what Sinqua Walls looks like. He looks like a freaking superhero, this man should be an action star where he’s jumping out of exploding buildings and respecting women’s boundaries and revealing that he’s also a master chef on the side. I’m just saying, Sinqua Walls’ jaw is so square that Legos get jealous. He would rock it as David Zavimbe.

Sorry, but “He looks like a freaking superhero, this man should be an action star where he’s jumping out of exploding buildings and respecting women’s boundaries and revealing that he’s also a master chef on the side,” is my new favorite sentence.

This is the kind of fancasting my dreams are made of.
