now I’m all “oh yeah Slit was in this movie too wasn’t he”
so headcanon is Nux got inducted into the War Pups and Slit was his mentor and they butt heads* occasionally (like Slit became resentful of Nux when Nux became a driver even though Slit was really better suited at lancing – let’s be real, Nux isn’t the most graceful creature on the planet and Slit was lounging off the side of a car going 100+ mph) but despite all of that they are buddies.
*haha, butt heads… literally right?? also they’re buttheads
ugh I admittedly don’t know much about the Mad Max universe but I have this headcanon where the War Boys aren’t… super well-educated outside of war and vehicles and the Valhalla mythos??? and that Nux probably hasn’t read much more than a vehicle users’ manual. so maybe Capable somehow got her hands on a book from the pre-nuclear times and they’re hunkering down and Nux is just like “what people used to ride on broomsticks instead of cars?? whhhaaaat”
Decided to draw an angry!Furiosa today because I attempted to read a review of her backstory comic by DC and discovered that basically it shines a grotesque amount of light into Immortan Joe’s abuse of the Wives and treats both them and Furiosa in a way that completely contradicts the film.
(Which the great thing about the film was that it DIDN’T feel the need to show all the abuse and we gathered all the information about the abuse via the plot (the lengths they were willing to go to get away from him) and how the Wives and Furiosa interacted with Joe and even with the objects of their imprisonment (the chastity belts, etc.))
