Logan AU where everyone is alive and happy. Charles, Logan and Laura lives together. Logan is a grumpy daddy, Charles is the coolest grandpa. Nothing bad happened.
Bonus: Laura have a dog and named it Wolverine. Logan doesn’t like it. Charles can’t stop laughing everytime Laura calls it. Bonus n2: Caliban is here too, he is the strange-but-funny uncle and cooks cookies for Laura everytime.
Batman vs Superman was over two hours of two men bickering over who has the biggest brooding cock-I mean, who has the better method of "saving" people and whether or not it's ok for Batman to beat and brand criminals without regarding the fact that not everyone's as wealthy and privileged as his morally upright ass and for Superman to ignore the fact that not everyone's as indestructible as him, meanwhile Wonder Woman over here...
Wonder Woman was vastly superior to bvs for two reasons.
-Wonder Woman is actually a likable lady and an idealistic believable super hero who doesn’t spend her entire moving thinking about how she COULD help people.
She charges in, headfirst, wanting to help people she doesn’t even KNOW because she wants to protect the people who’re dying.
-and Wonder Woman was just so much more subtle and less pretentious about its message.
Wonder Woman’s CHARACTER is not that she’s cold and heartless and…well, masculine.
She doesn’t EMULATE men.
She doesn’t need to act like a man to be strong.
She coos at a baby and kisses Chris Pine and doesn’t spend the entire movie ragging on women.
She dresses and acts feminine, and embodies kindness, grace, beauty, everything “feminine.”
And she’s also strong as fucking hell.
That is Wonder Woman.
She’s a good person.
She’s not some cold warrior goddess, an untouchable female shaped ideal.
She’s GENUINELY KIND.
She sees people suffering in the trenches and her first thought it, stop what we’re doing, we gotta help.
Chris pine and all of his men?
They’ve seen all of this.
They’ve hardened themselves to the horrors of war and accepted them as inevitable.
But Diana, new to the cruelty of the human world, is disgusted and she asks what’s wrong with you?
What is wrong with us?
We have accepted casualties. We have accepted pain.
We have excused suffering because we told ourselves long ago that we couldn’t do anything about it.
She does not accept that.
She fights, yes. She’s ferocious and she, unlike Batman, doesn’t have a compulsion against killing.
She was raised by warrior women, I mean come on.
But who does she fight for?
The women and children who did nothing wrong.
The injured, hopeless men fighting a war to end all wars.
The entire movie was lovely because all of Diana’s bewilderment at the way humans live was incredible.
She’s shocked at how dirty London is.
She’s not impressed by sex and she’s not impressed by war.
She thinks sexism is strange.
But she doesn’t like, rag on it, because Diana is literally so above it that she just wryly questions it at times.
Like I don’t care what all the whiny fanboys say.
There’s not an overt feminist message in this movie.
There’s no “men are so weak.”
There’s “men are corruptible” but as we see, Diana sees them as worth saving in the end, if only to fulfill her own ideals…
Which is feminist as fuck, I guess, because Diana doesn’t defend men because it’s her job.
She defends them because it’s her decision. Her morality. Her duty.
But the feminism in the movie comes from the fact that she’s so kind.
She breaks down when realizing that Ares isn’t behind it all, that MEN are the ones who are cruel to one another.
She sees the war and it’s only senseless violence to her.
All of the people she wants to help are the victims, and it’s clear cut, to her, who’s bad and who’s not.
But Chris Pine helps her realize that humans aren’t so clear cut.
And so even though she was disgusted by human actions, she still wanted to help the people in need.
I absolutely adore the scene where she’s charging across a battle field to pave the way to the town.
First off, it was so badass watching her knock aside artillery like it was nothing as the men cowered in the pits.
Second, SHE SAW THAT PEOPLE WERE SUFFERING AND SHE DIDNT CALCULATE.
She didn’t do a Batman, where she looked at the risks vs the benefits vs the needs of the many and the few.
She just charged in and did what she could.
Chris Pine told her she couldn’t do anything except help him with his plan, in order to stop the war and save them indirectly.
But Diana is a true warrior with the heart of a lion, man.
She helped them directly, with no nonsense, no politicizing, no planning, just action.
At the end she says love will save humanity?
That’s the kind of feminism Wonder Woman was embodying.
Wonder Woman wasn’t this lone independent operator who sneers at men who try to involve themselves in her business.
She was helped and supported by men, but it was clear that she was the star, the true hero who brought them and their plans together but also gave them a new hope, a new heart.
They were jaded by helplessness and mortal frustration, forced to fight to stand stills and accept human deaths.
She came and showed them something miraculous and wonderful: her power.
But not used to beat someone’s head in with a fucking sink.
Used to do good.
To fight for her morals, which aren’t corrupted by the human world’s greyness, not yet.
I loved this movie.
I loved this movie so much.
DC finally did good and we can stop pretending suicide squad and Batman vs superman were good.
Wonder Woman is the good DC movie.
Don’t even try to tell me BVS was better than Wonder Woman because if you genuinely believe that, either out of pride and obstinacy from all your bickering with marvel fans or out of delusional worshipping of anything DC, then I think you just like watching people beat people in slow motion and uncomfortably lofty , corporate-cut and stylized plots as interesting as watching a landscape time lapse.
Suicide squad was cut to bits by its editors, BVS suffered from some severe Snyder wanking, and justice league, I don’t know, we’ll see.
But Wonder Woman?
Best DC movie since dark knight.
God bless Patty.
I knew we needed a woman in charge to get the job done.

When you were asked about your plans for the future for the first time, you hadn’t even had your first day of school yet and there were dozens of szenarios in your head of how you’d spend your life.
It took a few years for your dreams to be shaped, until the vary shadows formed contours and you could answer with a small smile playing around your lips whenever someone asked you about that time which still felt so far ahead.
However, in middle school, you had to realize that life wouldn’t be as easy as you had thought before; that many of the things you had once dreamed of would never be possible but then, new ideas started to form in your head and when your friends told you about the subjects their older siblings were studying at university, you almost couldn’t wait to grow up and follow your dreams.
In high school, you had learned about your abilities and the topics you’re interested in, what you are good at and which issues you would rather avoid.
Now, when you were asked about your plans for the future, you could answer with several opportunities lying ahead of you and you’d talk about the cities where you would have liked to study. Graduating no longer seemed out of reach nor sight but still far enough away to not worry about details or feel the need to have your whole life planned out.
But then senior year comes around.
The first weeks, even months, still feel relatively normal, compared to high school, even though more and more people around you have a concrete idea of what they will do after they graduate.
But in the beginning, it’s still possible to laugh it all off, to shrug your shoulders and form an alliance of carelessness with those who feel as lost as you do when it comes to the future.
And you begin to remember all those dreams you once had, especially those who will never truly leave your mind and you cannot stop asking yourself whether it would actually be possible for you to follow them;
if maybe, just maybe, you are really free to achieve whatever you want.
Yet, it is still easy to forget about it all by focusing on the tasks ahead, the final exams and the preparations for the last educational events you’ll ever witness with these people who have been a part of your life for so long.
It’s not hard to simply surpress your worries and fears but then the end of this final year in school comes closer and closer until all the ‘last times’ are beginning.
The last time studying for an exam, the last presentation or the last movie you’ll watch bored to death while doodling on your paper.
But also the last free period spent outside in the sun with the people who mean the world to you, laughing until there are tears in your eyes and your ribs hurt, the last time being late to class because all of you rather stay in the car to finish singing this one song, the last time of ever laughing about a joke of that funny kid in your math class.
And then, suddenly, there is only one week left until you will all go separate ways, hoping that your paths will cross again someday and you cannot possibly understand that this part of your life, which seemed endless back when you were eight, will actually come to an end.
// and it is when you are standing on that hill behind the building, looking over the place where you spent almost your whole life, that you realize that it might just be true what people say; that good things have to come to an end to make room for even greater adventures j.d.m.
One of the things I loved most about Wonder Woman was how the thing that made Diana a superhero was her compassion and her love for others – for her Amazonian family, for Steve, for all of humanity.
All the traits we are told and socialized to see as traditionally feminine? They were Diana’s strength and her motivation for being Wonder Woman.
The movie never fell into the trap that so many do, writing “Strong Female Characters TM,” the writing of whom generally preoccupied with cutting all their ties to traditionally feminine traits and comparing them more with their male counterparts.
No. Here, when Diana steps into No Man’s Land, it’s because she can’t put aside the horrors that she’s seeing. Her compassion for the affected townspeople and their fate moves her to take action when “no man” can.
And the significance shouldn’t be lost on anyone that the villain she defeats at the end is Ares. Mars in roman mythology – yes, that same Mars we associate with the male symbol, the embodiment of traditional masculinity.
Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. That’s how the saying goes, right?
Though they’re reasonably well-matched in combat, Diana can’t get an edge over him until she truly connects with the love she feels for Steve and for the world. And that love and compassion and all her traditionally feminine traits are what allows her to win.
