amazing spiderman

I’m honestly not here for a Miles who disregards his race and the important symbolic nature that brings to the table. I’m not here for a Miles who views his blackness as a crutch and a blow against his “character” and identity. I’m not here for a Miles who doesn’t understand the intense emotion and almost tear-jerking delight when we see someone just like us, doing things that we always knew we could, but never had the opportunity. I’m not here for a Miles who spits in the face of the same movement and the same pride that created him.

Productive, Fun Marvel Things You Can Do Instead of Being Mad About White Iron Fist

I know a lot of you are pissed and/or disappointed about Marvel casting a white Iron Fist. Instead of being mad, I am going to recommend Marvel stuff that does truly represent Asian heroes, and they exist in the amazing and diverse world of comics.

The Totally Awesome Hulk

Amadeus Cho is Korean American and he is now the Hulk. After a mysterious accident putting Bruce Banner out of commision, Amadeus, one of the smartest people in the world, took it upon himself to be good old jolly green, except this time, he has his anger under control. This kid brings a sense of fun to being a huge, green monster and his series subverts all Asian stereotypes to give a legacy hero his own unique identity.

You can buy his series here

Silk

Cindy Moon was once bitten by a radioactive spider and after years in solitude, she became her own spider-hero, naming herself Silk. Her story is all about becoming accustomed to a world that has outgrown her and changed to an astonishing degree. She also looks for the family she was estranged from due to her powers. Any person with anxiety and just plain awkwardness can immediately relate to her.

You can buy her series here and here

The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu/Master of Kung-Fu

Do you want to see a true Asian martial arts master? Well then Shang-Chi is the man for you. The guy is a bit of a drunk and a loser but his resolve and skill are top of the line, and he will need all of his wisdom and strength to overthrow the evil government run by his father. This is the true Marvel kung-fu epic Netflix should be adapting. When he is not fighting his father’s authority, he works as a detective, taking on the most unusual cases and fighting the biggest of enemies.

Iron Spider in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon 

In the animated world, Amadeus Cho is still the lovable genius we know from the comics, except this time he is a Spider-Man. Using an Iron Spider suit he improved upon from a useless Tony Stark design, Cho becomes a master of flight and a genius engineer. He is a true hero and protector of New York City.

You can see him on Ultimate Spiderman vs. The Sinister Six and Ultimate Spiderman: Web Warriors on Disney XD 

Blindspot in Daredevil

Samuel Chung is an illegal Chinese immigrant that hides a fierce intellect and need for justice. Using what little money he has from an dingy apartment he shares with his sister, he builds himself a suit and a code of honor to protect his home and family in Chinatown as the vigilante Blindspot, eventually becoming the apprentice of the legendary hero Daredevil.

He can also turn invisible how cool is that?

Nico Minoru in A-Force

Nico Minoru is a magic user. Once a member of the Runaways, she is now a full-fledged Avenger working in the all-female A-Force team. She fights alongside great heroines like Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, Medusa, and her good friend Singularity. She is hero not to be messed with and she deserves everyone’s respect.

I understand why you want to be mad, but instead of being mad about movie and TV studios, we NEED to find places where change and representation is happening and there is no better place for that than in comics. Nothing is hopeless, we just need to look beyond our comfort zones.

All of these series are amazing and they need to be read.

Please read about these heroes, buy their series, and support them. 

If you already know about them, spread this post like wildfire and introduce these characters to people who need or want to see heroes that represent them.

Show Marvel that THIS is what we want both in their comics, TV shows, and movies.

Dating Harry Osborn would involve…

  • Bringing a takeout into his work when he works late, so the two of you can still eat dinner together
  • Sweet kisses
  • Becoming close friends with Peter Parker- who you were originally friends with anyway, when you met Harry and got together (Peter totally shipped you before it was a thing)
  • Learning about his illness
  • Helping him find something that would keep him alive
  • Intellectual conversations over romantic and expensive dinners in famous restaurants
  • Harry acknowledging that you don’t always want to go big, so organises little dates for you that incorporate all your favourite things
  • Incredible sex
  • Chastising him when he’s rude to his employees or fires people unnecessarily
  • But backing him up when somebody makes a remark about him being too young to run his late father’s business
  • Teasing him about boarding school (’So, you spent how much time with just boys all in one dorm…?’)
  • Holding hands while walking him through the reception of Oscorp and kissing him at the elevator- your favourite routine

So andrew garfield is the hot and sexy nerd ‘Id totally bang’ cause he fine af version of peter parker and tom holland is the cute and adorable nerd peter parker version you want to protect because he can cure cancer with his smile and is too precious for this world.

 I don’t see why I should be complaining about any of these reboots. im totally good. IM GOOD WITH BOTH.
