“Drama is what happens to human beings in extreme situations. That is why we’re fascinated by it. That’s why everybody flocks to films about the apocalypse, that’s why people love zombie movies. That’s why people are moved by superhero movies. That’s why everyone sees “The Revenant.” They are asking: What would I do in that situation? And the truth is that none of us know. We would like to believe that we would make noble, courageous decisions, but you don’t know until it happens, I suppose, the choices you would make. Would I be someone who is crippled by fear? Would I be too brave, too soon, and therefore disadvantage myself? I remember watching “Alive” and being so interested by this true story where certain people emerged from the group and were tougher than others.”

— Tom Hiddleston (2016)

HOW MARVEL KEEPS GETTING BACKFIRED

I love how MARVEL keeps presenting us with these dashing and powerful superheroes, but we go looking the other way for the lost souls, who are supposed to be the bad guys.

THOR

Marvel: Here is your beautiful, long blonde haired God of Thunder, the title character, who is the rightful ruler of Asgard.

Us: But. . But. . Let’s talk about how Loki must be dying on the inside. .

AVENGERS

Marvel: No, you don’t understand. Loki is EVIL.

Us: No, he is just misunderstood.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Marvel: Did you see how he killed those innocent people on earth and tried to make everyone kneel before him? He is evil and needs to be put in prison.

Us: What he REALLY needs is a bit of love. Can’t you see it in his eyes???

He is dying on the inside. LOOK AT HIM!!!

THOR: RAGNAROK

Marvel: ALRIGHT! Stop complaining. Here you go.

Us: You guys have broken him so much that he can’t comprehend the love any more.

And that dumbass brother can’t even see how much pain he really is in.

Marvel: Alright, forget THOR. Let’s talk about CAPTAIN AMERICA, a very honest soldier. .

Us:

Marvel: No. EVIL. BAD GUY. Didn’t you see how he tried to attack Cap. .

Us: THAT WASN’T HIS FAULT! He wasn’t in control of his own mind. Bucky always stood by Steve in his right mind.

Marvel: Fine, we accept. Loki and Bucky are just misunderstood and deserved more. Satisfied?

Us:

Marvel:

AT

HIM.

HE KNOWS WHAT IT DOES TO US.

HE BLOODY WELL KNOWS IT.

Friendly Reminder : Don’t forget to breathe, honey.
