“Fleur Delacour, whose whole narrative is wrapped up in her physical beauty until the point where she stands up and says hey, it’s not. Fleur Delacour, the Beauxbaxton’s champion, Fleur Delacour who stands with the Order, Fleur Delacour who loves and fights with fierce devotion […] How is this someone to hate?” (x)
MARVEL what’s your deal with the Scarlet Witch Erasure?
I love Sharon Carter and think she was a great addition to the movies…but lets get real here, it is totally not okay to erase a Scarlet Witch from ALL group merch in favour of a character who wasn’t actually part of the main battle arc.
This is the big ‘versus’ team shot and you benched one of your starting line-up and brought in a cheerleader by mistake because you thought the ‘dress code’ was darks and darks…
…and no I’m not belittling Sharon and her involvement in Civil War. She’s a strong, capable woman who knows how to kick ass and when to lay down some sass, but in this analogy she’s not one of the players on the team, she’s the one on the sidelines cheering on her chosen team.
And it’s not just one or two items. Every ‘Team Cap’ piece of merch I find has Scarlet Witch completely gone with Sharon Carter flying into action instead.
…like this Civil War Activity/Sticker book…
Yep, that’s right…the team consists of Steve, Clint, Sam, Bucky…and Sharon
More Agent 13 Stickers…and still no Scarlet Witch…
Even an Agent 13 activity page!
I love Sharon…but how about you give Wanda some love instead of removing her from existence completely?
This is why Marvel fans have so little faith in you…because you remember the male heroes yet still believe the female characters are interchangeable and that no one will care as long as we have A girl there to represent.
How to help your fellow Americans in Puerto Rico - from some friends with loved ones on the island:
Call your senators and representatives at 202-224-3121. You will be prompted to enter 1 or 2 for senator or representative. You will be prompted to provide name, and state or zip code. Then press 1 in the last set of prompts to leave a msg.
Advise the senator/representative of your concerns of the relief efforts in Puerto Rico, ask them to advocate the waiver of the Jones Act, and the mobilization of military assistance to assist in the distribution of food, medicine, and water due to the filed infrastructure and inability of those on the island to mobilize to provide the vital resources needed to keep fellow US citizens alive.
Please the more people that call the more likely the red tape of government will fade.
I know many people are confused and irritated about all of the stuff on Tumblr today regarding “internet slowlanes” and net neutrality. What is it? Why do I have to look at that spinning circle of death?
Above is probably the best breakdown of the issue I’ve seen.
The 50-star flag wasn’t even adopted until 1960, after the acceptance of Hawaii into the Union. If anything, this flag is the banner under which every single color revolution and regime change which has taken place since in the name of ‘stemming the tide of communism,’ spreading 'freedom’ or democracy,’ or “liberating” people.
The only flag that could possibly represent the 'ideals’ upon which this nation was founded are those flown at the manifestation of those ideals:
