Peggy Carter helped found SHIELD after Steve “died”.

It was founded at the camp that Steve trained at.

On marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Agent Ward says “Someone really wanted our initials to spell SHIELD”

Guys.

Rogue of X-Men TAS

Easily the scene-stealer of ’90s X-Men.

balltoh asked: I love your response to someone's question about Emma Frost's portrayal in Fox's X-Men films. Do you have an opinion on Rogue's portrayal? I like Anna Paquin, but the Rogue I see in the films is FAR from the Rogue I know and love in the comics. I was just curious to see what your opinion is and who you would cast as Rogue. I agree with your choices for Emma Frost. Spot on. Also, you work is amazing and I look forward to seeing more of it. :)

now this would be a question where i turn to uncannybrettwhite's expertise. i believe he's written about this very question a few times before.

as for my opinion, I’m not the biggest rogue fan. not as in i dislike her in any way, but i don’t have any strong opinions towards her in any way. but from just the years of comics I’ve read, the film rogue is in no way an accurate adaptation from the source material (as is about 95% of the film characters)

Aw yeah! Flattered!

I have no idea if this person will ever see this but: the Rogue in the X-Men movies is basically the Rogue that existed for two issues in the early ’80s — Uncanny X-Men #171-172. When Rogue ran to the X-Men, as a scared teenager with no control over her powers and no direction in life. She was not strong, she was not confident, she was justly reviled by the X-Men for being a member of Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

That’s the Rogue Wolverine meets in a bar in Canada, that’s the Rogue that gets damseled in the third act of “X-Men,” that’s the Rogue that gets sidelined in “X2’s” third act, and that’s the Rogue that goes and gets her powers taken away in “Last Stand.” Three movies dedicated to the meekest, version of Rogue.

That version of Rogue only works because of “Uncanny X-Men” #173 — when Rogue takes a deadly laser blast meant for Wolverine’s fiance, Mariko. Self-sacrifice, bravery, strength, all right there. The Rogue that laughs and flies higher and punches harder is born right there; that’s the Rogue that took out Master Mold in the Outback. That’s the Rogue that ya see in Fox’s “X-Men.” That’s the Rogue that stopped a movie train with her bare hands in last year’s “X-Men” #1. And that Rogue has never been in a movie. 

And it’s BS.

If you can’t set footage of Rogue kicking ass to “Bitter Rivals” by Sleigh Bells, it’s not my version of Rogue.

I wish I’d had like 8000 words for this, because Carol Corps blows my mind. It’s the first time I’ve seen a truly positive-sum fan community—a group that is all about sharing the joy and inspiration they get from this character, and celebrating the myriad of ways people find to engage with her. Fan after fan told me that they’d gotten into Captain Marvel because someone else called, lent them books, told them how much the character and community had grown to mean, and invited them in.

Look: I love the hell out of Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan, but they’re not why I finally bought myself some Optimystical dog tags at that show: Carol Corps is what inspires me again and again to keep caring about superhero comics, to believe they—and the community around them—can change for the better, and to hold them to that standard. You guys take my breath away.

Natasha is incredibly perceptive, and no doubt understands that Steve’s problems are less to do with his fish-out-of-water situation of being in the 21st century, and more to do with his crushing loneliness. Steve gives every impression of genuinely liking people, but he’s lost everyone he ever knew and grew up with, and is surrounded by people that he doesn’t really trust. He’s so lonely that he’s literally at the point of having intensely emotional conversations with a guy he met while jogging at the park, so Natasha is making the effort to help him improve his social life.

All of those girlfriend recommendations also come with a subtextual hint that she doesn’t want to date him, to discourage off the possibility of him getting too attached because she’s his only friend. She’s purposefully putting herself in the role of “bantery team member” rather than potential love interest, and as a result they seem to have a pretty close relationship already — or as close as you can ever get to Black Widow, anyway.

Fantastic commentary, y’all!!

make me choose: 
↳ anonymous asked Jemma Simmons or Rebekah Mikaelson 

Suddenly of the mind that Simmons is the only “SHIELD” cast member ready for an introduction to the big screen MCU.

Uncanny X-men 170

Storm rips out Calisto’s heart in a battle to the death for the life of her friends. Obviously it doesn’t go well for Calisto. 

GOD I LOVE STORM SO MUCH YOU GUYS 

Look at her picking up Angel like nothing. LOOK AT THAT DAMSEL IN DISTRESS. LOOK AT THE FUCKS SHE GIVES. NONE. NO FUCKS. MY GOD WOW. 

I’m so happy this post is getting the notes it deserves. Love u ‘Ro

Also, we can’t forget that Storm is burning up with a crazy fever thanks to the Morlock Plague’s touch, and she has a vow to not take a life! And that Nightcrawler initially was like, “Yo, I’ll fight you for Angel’s life” and Storm was like, “NO. Ilead the X-Men. Your life, this fight, are MINE.” Even though she’s so sick! And then she does all of this for her friends, her team, it’s a defining moment!

This is my favorite X-Men era of all time.

Batgirl!

Above is my entry for Project: Rooftop’s recent “Batgirl Begins Again” costume redesign contest, celebrating the sites eight-year anniversary.

Today they announced their “Top 3 Entries” for the contest, and I’m happy to say I find myself as one of them. Paired with two stellar designs by the incredible Chris Samnee and Elizabeth Beals, I’m pleased as punch.

Please do click on through to their site to see all three designs as well as scoring and comments from the P:R panel of judges.

Speaking of which, I tried to address their very valid point about Barbara’s cape, doing a quick fix where I extended the fabric up over her shoulder and neck, adding a zipper, so it’d be less likely to fall off.

Brett White (of Matt and Brett Love Comics) said “this is a design that I could easily see on a dozen+ cosplayers…” and I so hope he’s right!
That’d be awesome. Let me know if you do!
