planet in peril

So I was just thinking about how Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan helped Padme when she was a teenager, and helped Satine when she must have been in her teens or early 20s, and then I started dying because like…what if Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon were the Jedi Order’s Distressed Teenage Royalty Division? Like, any time some ridiculously-dressed young lady or gentleman’s planet was in peril, the Council would be like “Jinn. Kenobi. You guys know what to do.” 

(Young Obi-Wan’s whole handsomeness situation is…oh, a not-small part of what drove the Council’s decision to send them. Qui-Gon finds this hilarious, because Obi-Wan has not figured any of this out yet. “But Master, our last seven missions have been to help a girl like this, don’t you find it slightly strange?” he asks earnestly, as he signs an autograph for their latest Rescued Young Maiden before they depart, his face covered in lipstick prints.)

The Terrifics To Feature a Surprise Return: Tom Strong

DC’s The Terrifics - the brand-new ‘New Age of Heroes’ team of Plastic Man, Phantom Girl, Mr. Terrific and Metamorpho  - may help welcome back another team of superheroes reader thought they might never see again, or ever see in the DCU.

That’s titular hero Tom Strong, his wife Dhalua, daughter Tesla and companions Pneuman and King Solomon, the cast members of Alan Moore and Chris Sprouse 1999 America’s Best Comics title.

The last appearance of the characters was in 2013’s Vertigo limited series Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril by Peter Hogan and Sprouse.

The Terrifics will be written by Jeff Lemire with artists Ivan Reis and Doc Shaner. Described as a superhero “family” title with the goal to recapture the feeling of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four, if a part of the extended cast, Tom Strong and his family would fit right in with the aesthetic.

Look for more information about the role of the ABC property in the title and the DCU in general as the publisher makes it available.

“Y/N!” Biggs Darklighter, who had become one of your closest friends, called you from the doorway of the infirmary on Yavin 4 where you worked. “They rescued the princess!”

You heaved a sigh of relief. Rescuing Leia had been on the front of everyone’s minds. “Who did?” you questioned.

“That’s just it,” Biggs announced, walking over to you. “It was Luke.”

Your stomach dropped. Before you could react, your overseer interrupted. “Solo! I need you over here.”

“Just a moment!” you called over your shoulder. You turned back to Biggs. “You’re sure it was Luke?”

“Yeah, but there’s more. Us pilots are suiting up to go to war. The Empire has a weapon called the Death Star, and–”

I’ve seen people criticizing how the Thor Ragnarok trailer is too much laughs and giggles and how Thor and Hulk showdown should be bloody and destructive, not Thor quipping and funny jokes…

Except, did you like forget the existence of all the other MCU movies?

This isn’t the comics characters, criticizing the scene without actually considering the context is just pointless

Thor and Hulk were friends the last time they saw each other, not enemies, so this reaction is completely in line with story and character progression.

Thor is stuck on the other side of the universe alone and defeated, his planet and home in peril, and suddenly he comes across his friend? Of course he’s gonna be so fucking excited and be like “YESSSSS!” because then he’s not alone, he’s got a friend, seeing Hulk is basically seeing hope that he can get out of this and all would be okay.

‘Beware of ascribing human feelings to aliens,’ Jack said. ‘It’s a classic mistake. They don’t think like us, they don’t feel like us, they don’t react like us. It’s hard enough working out what a cat is thinking, let alone something from another planet. Anthropomorphise at your peril.’
‘That should be our motto,’ Owen said. ‘I’ll get some T-shirts made up.

Supergirl Conspiracy

Kara wants to be a writer. So I had a thought re-watching the first episode: 

My name is Kara Zor-El. 24 years ago my planet, Krypton, was in serious peril. My cousin, Kal-El, was sent to a planet called Earth for his own safety and protection. You may know his story. The story you don’t know is that I was sent to protect him.  Things didn’t exactly go according to my mother’s plan. Krypton’s destruction sent a shock wave that knocked my pod off course and into the Phantom Zone. A region in space where time doesn’t pass. I slept there for 24 years until somehow I got here. When I arrived, I was still a 13-year-old girl. But in that same time my cousin Kal-El had grown up and revealed himself to your world as Superman. The most powerful man in the universe. My cousin wanted me to have the same safe human-type childhood he did. So he placed me with my adoptive family, the Danvers. Scientists who once helped him understand his own super abilities. They had a daughter, Alex. And despite being born on different planets, we both shared one thing. We knew our lives would never be the same again. My cousin, he didn’t need my protection. I didn’t have a mission anymore. But even though I had all the same powers he did. I decided the best thing I could do is fit in. After all, Earth didn’t need another hero. I work at Catco Worldwide Media. An online and print empire built by my boss, Cat Grant. The most powerful woman in National City. At least, for the next few days!

So, what if Kara does become a writer, in the end and she writes a book from her point of view, starting from the first episode all the way to whenever it ends! & The episodes are just different chapters in her story!

Which would make sense because in this speech above, she talks about certain aspects in past-tense and some in present tense, which might be foreshadowing future events within the show! Like the quote, “my cousin wanted me to have the same safe human-type childhood he did,” foreshadows that in Season 2 and how she saves Clark Kent, and he says that she is stronger than him - this is showed with the use of the word, ‘wanted,’ which suggests past tense. 

The scariest bit is “They had a daughter, Alex,” .…had…had…HAD!

I hope I’m not right.

It happened...

…I’ve finally cracked.

And what I mean by that is, I watched a documentary on how we’re literally destroying the planet. It’s by the name of Planet in Peril, with the ever charismatic Anderson Cooper and Jeff Corwin. Now, the documentary is mainly about saving animals, but one statistic stuck with me.

We are using the planet’s resources at a rate of 30% more than we can produce.

Thirty. Three-zero. That’s a number I can hardly wrap my head around.

Long story short, that evening, I stumbled across an article about zero waste,a concept totally new to me. The idea is simple: you literally create no trash. Zero. Zip. None.

The execution, however, is difficult. How do I even start something like this? Sure some of the things are easy fixes. Bringing a reusable water bottle instead of using plastic. Bringing my own coffee cup instead of getting a paper one that will go in the trash. But some of the more difficult things are what I’m scared of. Where will I get yogurt without any packaging? Soap? My favorite face scrub?

Anyways, that’s why I’m here. To document this journey, and to hopefully encourage others to follow in the same footsteps that I am following.

Till next time!

Soon I Will be Invincible (2008) 

“Doctor Impossible—evil genius, would-be world conqueror—languishes in prison. Shuffling through the cafeteria line with ordinary criminals, he wonders if the smartest man in the world has done the smartest thing he could with his life. After all, he’s lost every battle he’s ever fought. But this prison won’t hold him forever. 

Fatale—half woman, half high-tech warrior—used to be an unemployed cyborg. Now, she’s a rookie member of the world’s most famous super-team, the Champions. But being a superhero is not all flying cars and planets in peril—she learns that in the locker rooms and dive bars of superherodom, the men and women (even mutants) behind the masks are as human as anyone. “
