Firestar: Does he always fly when he flies? I mean, inside a jet, not outside. Obviously he flies when he’s flying by himself. I mean—
Iceman: Will you forget him and help me with this door, Firestar?! It’s like someone locked it from the inside.
Firestar: Ugh. You should have gone before we left
Iceman: I did! I thought, hey the X-Jet has a bathroom, too, I can just pee in there!

ABC has given Peggy Carter the green light for her own series! Marvel’s Agent Carter will star Hayley Atwell, and is based on the one shot featured on the Iron Man 3 DVD.
The story is set in 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life — Steve Rogers.
This is going to be the best news I get all morning.
whoa this is kind of amazing
okay I “haha’d” at the concept but now I’m reading the article and holy shit
I figured they were doing it because of pissy fanboys, but not horrible monstrous human beings threatening a writer.
that’s fucked up
Taken from the website:
"Two weeks ago, that long-growing ugliness became more pronounced than ever. CBR published an article by guest contributor Janelle Asselin, critiquing the cover to DC Comics’ upcoming "Teen Titans" #1. Some of you liked the article, some of you didn’t. We encouraged readers to share their feedback in the CBR Forums.
Unfortunately, what happened next was unacceptable — so-called “fans” around the Internet, on various message boards and social media, including the CBR Forums, attacked Janelle personally, threatening her with rape and assault. These same “fans” found her e-mail, home address and other personal information, and used it to harass and terrorize her, including an attempted hacking of her bank account.
All over a comic book cover critique. Just think about that for a second.
If you’re one of the people who participated in any of these reprehensible acts, my message is simple: You are not welcome anywhere on CBR, and in our opinion, you have no place in the comics industry.”
"Effective immediately, in place of the forums will live the new CBR Community, a discussion area that will still facilitate conversation and debate, however passionate — but will show zero tolerance for intimidation or abuse of all members of the community, regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identification. CBR and all areas of its website and operations will be a safe space for all people, of all levels of involvement. We’re starting from scratch, providing everyone with the opportunity to build a new community, together. Rules will be explicit, and once again — we will not tolerate anyone who doesn’t want to abide by them.
I believe there is value in building and fostering a community that is inclusive, diverse, accepting and compassionate. It is important, and it’s worth trying to build a better place for every fan, regardless of background or identity. I’m putting the money and resources behind this to make certain that those who have acted with hatred in their hearts are unable to spread their hate in our community again. I can’t stop them from spewing their trash elsewhere, but I can ensure they’re not welcome at CBR.”
Holy shit, CBR, well done.
like anyone who looks at a storyline and goes “this story is pretty good… but you know what would make it even better? less kitty pryde. more wolverine" has a critical flaw in their personality tbh
They already got enough backlash as it is from messing up Emma Frost, do you think they’d be stupid enough to do something like that’s gain with an even bigger character? I know they are changing he storyline by using Wolverine instead, but it makes more sense in the movie continuity. The people that made that decision spent way more time than you have thinking about it and have gone over way more of the possibilities as to how they could keep it close to the original, this is the decision they made based on hours and hours of thought and debate, they know what they are doing. Just wait until the movie actually comes out and judge it based off of how good it is, not by what they changed. If you haven’t noticed none of the comic book movies are 100% faithful adaptions, yet they still did a great job.
lol if you think kitty pryde as the protag was ever on the table you’re either obstinate or naive
Thank you. Thank you thank you thank you.
They were always going to give Wolverine the top billing (or maybe Professor X or Magneto in a pinch) and it didn’t matter what they had to do to make that happen. Everything about this situation is so contrived that had they decided to focus on Kitty instead (which again, was never an option lol she’s a woman why would u do that) it wouldn’t have been any more difficult to rearrange the plot around that.
There’s also a massive selection of X-Men who are not white dudes who haven’t shown up in the film universe at all that they could have chosen instead of him. But they didn’t. I wonder why.
Don’t talk to me about this having been a decision about the integrity of the original story. X-Men: First Class had as little to do with the source material as possible, not just in the character selection and the trajectory of the main arc. Don’t talk to me about their concern for the integrity of the original characters when they cared so little about this that they killed Darwin, one of only two characters of color, who in comic canon is so unkillable that the queen of Hel herself used her death touch on him and he adapted to it by becoming a death god.
