I had the honor and horror of explaining/proving today to my local comic book store owner, who is a born-and-raised Jewish dude, that the Black Widow is Jewish. I ended up making a drive home and grabbing my copy of the 83-87 run of her origin story and then going back in person to prove the point today (a week after the original argument)/sit there and watch him repeat, dumbfounded, again and again, “I thought she was Russian Orthodox or something.”

So then I had to explain that Marvel eventually retconned her into having had the Red Room rip out all her memories of life before her parents’ death and thus left her unaware of her heritage. He had a copy of the new version of her origin story. We went over it together in-store, curious, and left mutually disappointed. There’s not one hint of her original origin left other than her very Jewish patronymic still remaining part of her name.

As a Russian-descended person I find that kind of a fitting metaphor for how the Russian government has treated Russian Jews - Natasha can succeed, can be the best in her field, can be beautiful and praised for her moral fortitude, but only if she has all Jewishness forcibly removed from her. It’s sort of befitting the era in which her character would have grown up, especially if Marvel pushes forward with the idea they’ve hinted at that the Red Room’s treatments have stalled her aging and she might be nearly as old as Steve and Bucky.

Out of universe, though, please never forget that Marvel took out all the women from the Avengers except one for their cinematic adaptation initially, and the one they left, they made either atheist or secular enough to casually refer to Loki and Thor as gods. They had a chance to put the first Jewish superhero to the big screen and didn’t even consider it for a second.

Then they made the Scarlet Witch not only not Jewish but Christian in the sequel. Just to twist the knife a little deeper, they made her non-Rromani and went with a fake nationality to top it all off.

And thus I stood before a man whose job was (in part) to live and breathe Marvel and he had no idea Natasha Romanov was Jewish. This new and improved origin story that has no trace of her Jewish roots (in freaking Novosibirsk where there’s a large Jewish quarter of the city, are you kidding me with this Marvel) comes during the same year Marvel published a storyline headed by writer Nick Spencer where Captain America was a Nazi/HYDRA agent all along, a storyline that only got canceled because the fan protests and outcry was so great that between the petitions, boycotts and actual Marvel actors like Clark Gregg (who is Jewish and who Nick Spencer sent the issue personally) publicly stating disgust with it that Marvel realized they weren’t going to be able to sell overt antisemitism. Covert antisemitism, though, we’re still buying - the Iron Man anti-villain/anti-heroine The Mad Thinker/Rhona Clytemnestra Cohen had her surname changed to have always been Burchill and her backstory retconned into her family being the victims of ‘a criminal car bombing’. Not ‘an antisemitic car bombing motivated by the fact my mother was a brilliant Jewish scientist whose coworkers had it out for her’. Just ‘a criminal car bombing’. I have seen all of three people complain about that even though it takes her motivations as a Jewish woman who hates that superheroes don’t save or stand for people like her and turns her into another generic supervillain.

I see what you’re doing, Marvel. There’s a reason I go out of my way to buy my comics from a place that will let me leaf through comics before purchasing them. If you want to keep going down this path, please just be aware that one day, kids will be shown that Captain America panel of him saying ‘Hail HYDRA’ in history class as they learn about the 2016 antisemitic upswing. You are made of the same stuff videos labeled ‘crazy propaganda cartoons’ on YouTube are.

(And yes I know one person’s rants are another person’s no big deal but I am not merely out of fucks to give, I am deeply, deeply in the red right now.)

So here’s an email I just sent to Marvel, in case you’re interested

To the editors of Marvel Comics:

Many of the letters in your letters pages begin with the writer’s long history of reading comics as evidence that you should care about their opinion and want to keep them as a customer. While I may be relatively new to comics, I think I’m a pretty desirable customer. Not only do I have disposable income and a willingness to spend money on physical books in a brick-and-mortar comic shop, but I’m also a teacher and librarian with the power to get your books in the hands of the next generation.

Until recently, I was thrilled to do just that. I teach at a school that serves a very diverse population and I wanted to expose my students to heroes who look like them. I bought them Miles Morales, Sam Wilson, Ms. Marvel, Silk, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, various team books, and more. I did this not with the school’s budget, but with my own money (and I of course took the opportunity to read them myself first).

For myself (although I also share most of them with students), I have every issue of Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat!, The Mighty Thor, Mockingbird, Storm, and most of the recent Black Widow and Captain Marvel runs. I’ve been eagerly awaiting Nick Fury and America, and was not disappointed by their #1s. I’ve loved so much of what Marvel has given me over the past few years; I got to see parts of myself and the people I love in these books, parts that I don’t always get to see in popular media.

But none of the above were the characters that got me into comics; that honor belongs to Steve Rogers. I fell in love with him in the movies, with his steadfastness and his sense of justice and his belief in doing the right thing and protecting individuals. I went back and read Brubaker’s Winter Soldier arc, but was too intimidated by the vastness of the Marvel universe to read many of the books he was currently appearing in when I first started reading comics.

And then I found out he was being restored to his young self and getting a new series. I was ECSTATIC. I couldn’t wait to get it and see what new adventures this amazing character would go on. When I found out about the twist at the end of #1, I was upset, but everyone assured me that this is comics - it’ll be mind control or a decoy or some other trick. Soon everything would be back to normal. But as I realized how committed everyone at Marvel was to the reality of Steve-the-Hydra-Agent, I also realized that this was a book that didn’t want me as a reader. This version of Steve Rogers seemed to have nothing in common with the Steve Rogers I had fallen in love with. As a queer woman with Jewish ancestry, I felt like my concerns were dismissed and that I was unwelcome. 

So I didn’t buy the book. I kept my other subscriptions and continued to enjoy them, all the while waiting for the trick-behind-the-trick that everyone else seemed sure would come. And then Secret Empire began.
I don’t know if I can put into words how it felt to find out that according to this new story, Steve Rogers has never been a hero at all. The closest I can get is that it was a punch in the gut, although I feel the cliche fails to accurately convey the strength of my response.

Stories matter. Heroes matter. And in a world that feels full of pain and fear and darkness, stories and heroes matter even more. The people I love are living with a lot of fear right now - fear of deportation, fear of losing access to health care, fear of being attacked for who they love or the color of their skin - and so am I. We need heroes who can remind us of why we fight, why we resist, why we rise above, why we plant ourselves like a tree and say “no, you move.”

Steve Rogers used to be that hero for me and for many others. To take a hero like Steve Rogers and destroy everything that made him who he was, everything that he was created to be…I don’t know why that is a story that Marvel wants to tell right now. Or ever. It is incomprehensible to me.

And it leaves me torn. I have asked my shop to not pull any books related to Secret Empire for me, and a part of me wants to firmly declare that Marvel will never see another cent of my money at all. The other part of me remembers how much I have loved and appreciated my other experiences as a Marvel fan, the encouragement that your characters and stories have given me, the ways they’ve made me laugh and given me something to look forward to, a bright spot in the middle of the week.

I don’t know if I will keep buying Marvel comics. I want to, but I’m not sure you want me to. Right now, it seems like I’m the type of customer that you don’t want at all - the customer who values the diversity you’ve blamed for the sales slump and who wants her good guys to be good, even when it’s hard.

Hoping to remain a fan,
Rachel A. 

I don’t post a lot on social media these days and I rarely if ever post anything personal. But I have two personal stories that I’ve never really told publicly that I feel I need to tell today.

About seven years ago there was a letter in my mailbox from the White House. To be clear, not just the White House, but from the newly elected President Of The United States. Wow, maybe this had something to do with his appearance in an issue of Amazing Spider-Man, but oddly enough it was addressed to my then 8 year old daughter. It seems that unbeknownst to her parents, my little girl mailed a letter to President Obama wishing him well and offering him advice as only an 8 year old could.

And he wrote back.

In the letter he thanked and commending her for passing along her thoughts and engaging in this wonderful thing we call Democracy. To this day I still tear up remembering the look on her face as she read that letter realizing that not only did the President Of The United States write back, but that she lived in a country in which this was possible.

Two years later I was sitting in my office at Marvel when my phone rings and a gentlemen claiming to be an assistant to the President Of The United States tells me that the POTUS would like to commission me to do a piece of art for him. Thinking it was a prank I told him I’d love to discuss it further but I was rushing off to a meeting and would gladly call him back. I took down his info, did a quick Google search and confirmed that the number on my caller I.D. was indeed coming from an office in the White House. Wait, what?!?

As it turned out a close friend of the President, Patrick Gaspard, who was the Director of the White House Office of Political Affairs, was leaving to take on his new role as the Director of the Democratic National Committee. Mr. Gaspard happened to be a HUGE Marvel Comics fan. We’re talking a full on True Believer since childhood, and President Obama thought that a perfect parting gift for his service to the administration would be a custom piece of art featuring Mr. Gaspard, himself and several Marvel heroes standing in front of the White House and for some godforsaken reason he was asking me to draw it. I of course had to get approval from the highest levels of Marvel where it was met with nothing but enthusiasm and a big thumbs up.

Now as unlikely as all of this sounds, nothing was more surreal than when I was sending off rough sketches to White House for the President’s approval and getting back notes. I’d never been more thrilled to get art revisions in my life! Once the piece was finished inked and colored by Danny Miki and Richard Isanove respectfully, I received word that the President was thrilled with the results and Mr. Gaspard was over the moon with the final framed surprise gift.

Admittedly, for those close to me that knew about the assignment, I’d make it a point to boast as often as I could that I was now officially the very first United States Sequential Artist Laureate. Quite frankly, I don’t see why that shouldn’t be a thing.

A short time later I was at San Diego Comicon signing books at the Marvel booth when someone extended a hand for me to shake. I looked up and the gentlemen said, “Do you recognize me?” How could I not, I had spent a week drawing him. It was of course Mr. Gaspard and he wanted to thank me personally for the art and to express how much Marvel had meant to him growing up and still means to him today. Patrick and I have kept in touch ever since and while his current tenure as Ambassador to South Africa is coming to an end, I’m looking forward to catching up with him when he’s back in the States and making good on my promise to bring him on to the set of Defenders or taking him to a Mets game.

And yes, I was lucky enough to meet President Obama. like I said, I don’t usually like to post things of a personal nature, but today I feel compelled to simply convey my own humble experience of having the great honor of meeting the most powerful man on the planet when he was in office. A man who was nothing but kind, appreciative and generous to me, who demonstrating a genuine love for the medium of comics and took more time than he ever needed to to express his appreciation for the work I created and the medium of comics itself. The same man who also took time to write a simple yet eloquent response in 2009 to a little girl who express love and hope, not for herself, but for her President and his future.

Godspeed President Obama, thank you for your service. I have no doubt and look forward to how you will continue to serve and change our world for the better.

Have I ever mentioned to any young aspiring artists out there, or even established illustrators who want to learn a bit more, that Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud is the greatest textbook on narrative illustration ever to have existed and you can throw away all your awkward manga books and ugly marvel how-tos because this thing has got it all. 

I may or may not be re-reading it for the third time in 10 years and its still as perfect now as when I picked it up age 15.

A/N: Hi, my birthday is the 1st and that is very close and I’m excited. thank you. 

Summary: Bucky had naughty dreams about reader and he writes them down. Big mistake Buckaroo. Totally inspired by @bucky-sempai ‘s anon ask. 

Bucky had his secrets, quite a few of them actually. And that was common knowledge to anyone who knew him. What they didn’t know was when Steve brought him and his little journals to the compound, the things he wrote to the journal changed drastically. For Bucky’s defence, he did have different journals for different things he had remembered; he had a journal for memories he had stumbled upon and a journals for the dreams he had. After living in the compound a for a long time and developing a good friendship with Agent Y/N, Bucky found himself writing down his fantasies about her. It was like his safe place, a safe place he could write down inappropriate things in peace.

Heroes are being called to fight in Donald Trump Conquers Marvel Universe…I mean Secret Empire #0

Okay, the good stuff is that there is some Riri in this issue, working with Tony A.I to fix Carol’s Shield. And America is present among team Carol gathered for space fight. And…I don’t know, @illuminatingcomics will love the page where Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Steve Bannon…I mean Steve Rogers, roasts Carol, I guess?

Now, the bad part.

This book literally starts with the revelation that Nazis won the WWII and Allies used Cosmic Cube to rewrite the reality so that they would win. Not joking, they outright go and say that. Marvel is so stupid they made their book say Hitler was supposed to win and the world as we know is a lie. I don’t know if this is just ignorance over how this will be read, actually believing that shit or Marvel really wants Alt-Right money, but it’s disgusting. Fuck this book. Don’t buy it, don’t support it, if you have to read it, pirate. Fuck this Nazi shit.

part of the reason why i believe iron man 1 is, to date, the highest-rated marvel film (besides rdj’s brilliant performance and interpretation of the character) is because jon favreau (the director) wanted to make this film really special for the comic book fans. he made sure that tony stark’s origin story remained as close to the comics as possible (with some reinvention and modernisation to fit our current world) and also wanted to put in a hella lot of easter eggs for the hardcore fans to catch and analyse. also, this was marvel studios’ first film in the marvel cinematic universe. the precedent of the ‘marvel formula’ hadn’t been established yet. and the film (while it had massive pressure to hit it big at the global box office and do well financially) was more for the comic book fans than the general movie-going public. now, however, with marvel’s success having grown at an exponential rate, i feel like this has been inverted and their movies have become primarily targeted at the general movie-going public than the comic book fans. their movies are still amazing and entertaining and the characters are fleshed out etc etc,, but there’s just something missing in some of their films. the newer films they’ve put out are getting really high scores, however, which is good, but i feel like they still haven’t been able to match the special quality about the first iron man film… perhaps it’s because iron man 1 may be the most realistic of all the films and thus more relatable. there weren’t any aliens or enhanced individuals or infinity stones. it dealt with real life themes, like terrorism and corruption, and accountability and responsibility etc etc. and it also dealt with very human issues as well within tony stark’s incredibly complex, 3-dimensional, and nuanced character and the journey he takes throughout the film.

Tl;dr: iron man 1 is da best

“They’ve been dancing around their feelings for months, Tony,” Natasha Romanoff said to the billionaire with a roll of her eyes. “How exactly do you expect to fix that?”

“On our next mission,” Tony said, as if it was obvious. “We have to go out of town, you know.”

 “Okay?” The redhead asked, raising an eyebrow. “Meaning what, exactly?”

“One word: roommates.” Tony grinned as if it was the best idea he had ever had.

“Tony, no, okay. Bucky is going to want to room with Steve, and Y/N is going to want to be with me, it isn’t going to work,” Natasha said with a sigh. “Honestly, how you ever became a billionaire with some of your ideas is beyond me.”

“First of all, rude. Second of all, no, Red, it won’t be a problem. You want to know why?” He didn’t give her a chance to respond. “Because we are not going.”

Why is reading comics so hard?? I don’t want to start a story in a Superman Book to continue it in a Wonder Woman Book but have a plot twist revealed in a Batman Book only for the ending to be in a Green Lantern Book, why is it this way? Can’t comics be more like manga? Where you start a story in a Book and actually finish it in the same book?

Honestly this is the biggest turn off about American comics. Now, if they just got rid of this problem then more people (including me) would start reading more of their books.

What the Norse Gods Really Looked Like (Probably): Odin

Now, I love the MCU Thor and company as much as the next guy, but being Scandinavian myself, the artistic liberties taken with the characters’ appearances bugs me a bit. Kind of like a frame on the wall that’s hanging just a little bit crooked, I can’t help wanting to tweak it.

I’ve tried to use styles and patterns that adhere as close as possible to the Nordic culture of the time, and to reflect the most common interpretations of the gods’ appearnces, but I’m sure there are folks out there more knowledgable than I who might have a correction or two for me.

Anthony Hopkin’s version more or less looks the part, although Odin’s beard was typically longer. When walking among mortals, he often wore a broad brimmed hat to hide his missing eye, and his infalible spear, Grungnir, turned into a simple staff (many believe he was the inspiration for Tolkein’s Gandalf character). Whether or not he covered his missing eye the remainder of the time is debatable, but many accounts simply say he let his hair swoop down and cover it. His clothing, though, was typically described in shades of blue and gray, representing the sky and its fleecy clouds. He also wore a magical arm ring called Draupnir (which some say was gold, but I thought silver matched color scheme better). 

I’m so glad that Taika Waititi decided to go with a neon vaporwave vibe for thor: ragnarok because I can’t sit through one more marvel movie that looks like a nickelback video tbh

In a way, prison was a relief to him; he had always fared better behind bars than on the streets. The stress of maintaining his images out in the real world weighed crushingly on him; it was so much easier in the unreal world of prison. He popped vitamins and munched health foods. He built up a considerable collection of socks, and slipped into an occasional reverie about how delightful it would be to wear a brand-new pair every day of the year. He drifted on a cloud of smuggled marijuana and hashish.

All in all, with his dope and his socks and his mysticism, Bundy was a mellow prisoner. Now and then a guard would marvel : Bundy, you’re such a nice guy. I can’t figure it out. And Bundy would flash his Cheshire cat smile. He got an incredible amount of mail, hundreds of letters a year - many from young women who said they had fallen in love with him, but also letters from people who hated him, and from people who wanted to write books about him, makes movies of his life, save his soul. When he answered a letter, he generally ended his response with the words, « peace, ted, » all lowercase. Visitors came often, and when they did, Bundy liked to discourse on liberal causes. He claimed to support women’s rights and oppose global warming.

So. I realized I’ve never actually talked about the design process for the new Captain Marvel costume, and I thought that’d be a good way to kick off November.

When I came onto the book, one of the first things myself and the editor talked about was the design of the costume. Not so much that we HAD to do a redesign, but just some things that we had the opportunity to take a second look at now that we had the chance. I really wanted to take this moment to make the costume just a little more “me”.

But the Mckelvie costume isn’t broken, so it didn’t need to be fixed. I just wanted to add little flairs. One of my jumping off points is that I love the Warbird costume carol used to rock, so I wanted to take elements of that and bring it to her Captain Marvel costume. This is where the gloves, and the ideas of the knee pads and straps on her torso came from. I submitted two ideas that were just initial passes, but were basically the extent that I wanted to provide changes. One was a look more or less what was already in existence (it’s the one that was picked), and the other that just returned the “red belly” look.

We were approved for the first design, with a few alterations. The belt was the only specific note: instead of just being a sash, making it into a real belt with pouches so it can serve a function. I kept the sash hanging off it because I liked it for the visual drama. I made a few other small tweaks throughout the design for the final (the boots, the collar). But we also wanted to flush out the hair a bit. Everyone on the book liked and agreed with my desire to cut Carol’s hair really short (I just really liked it visually and it happened to also fit the direction of the book), so I took a few passes at other short cuts; trying to find the right balance of formal, short, and feminine. Ultimately F was chosen. 

And then it was a pretty short step to get to the final design. Although even after the official announcement of the book and design I still made some tweaks (notably the collar, if you go back and compare to the original design sheet). and thats basically it. probably the least pain-staking redesign I’ve done haha. probably to make up for all the other designing I had to do for the book *wink*

Dude, if you wrote X-MEN, that would not only kick ass, but I'd start reading them again (my collection spans the '70s and '80s, got them from my stepdad as a present). Would it be an actual book or would you keep it a comic? Because if it was a book, I'd happily shove a copy into my stepdad's hands and tell him: "YOU NEED TO READ THIS NOW, DROP EVERYTHING!" Well, I'd be tell him that anyway since he loves your books as Mira Grant, but I'm curious.

I want to write the comic.

I want Marvel to let me write the comic.

I want Marvel to trust me to do right by the comic.

I want to write the X-Men.
