the coding tag is awful though

My Dream Avengers Roster

I talk shit about Marvel every day, I mean like every day I talk shit about Marvel. So I decided to do a post where I just have fun as a fan of the characters that Marvel has managed to produce. This post is going to be about the characters, why I would want them in the adventures, and maybe a bit more. Perhaps if you all like this roster I’ll make further posts about how I think interactions and dynamics would work out. Hell if I enjoy making the stuff I could even do a slice of fan fic so do like me know what you think. Also it’s worth noting this is my dream roster for like me to write, or like a writer I really trust cuz most these heroes I trust about 3 writers to do write in the current mainstream talent pull.

Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl: Doreen is the leader of this group of Avengers, it really only makes sense for someone unbeatable to lead a team given that track record would apply to any team she leads too. Doreen has been on several Avengers rosters before and her style of leadership for the avengers would finally have the Avengers really focused on helping people. There would be a lot of trying to talk to baddies and conflict resolution going on.

Angela: Angela has chosen to live in New York, to shop at Ikea, to work a job but you can only do that so long before you want to pay some bills with that Avengers money. I don’t think Angela would sit idly by as bad things are happening so she is a great contender for my avengers roster. I think she also works in pretty nice contrast to all the other heroes in the book since her moral code would be really different than everyone else. Everyone has to be like “Angela no don’t kill them” and Sera jumps up and goes “Baby do it if you want but this is an avengers book, people will be upset. ”

Sera: If Angela is on a team then Sera would sure as hell be on that team too (*coughs at Brian Michael Bendis aka awful writer who is popular*). Sera isn’t just a tag along though, Sera is a powerful trans woman and maybe the most powerful trans woman in all of mainstream comics. Hell as a magical character she is likely on the stronger end able to send magic from Hel to the world of the living, having meta awareness, fighting giant monsters, Sera is an angel who kicks all sorts of ass. I see her really being able to establish herself in the halls of other great meta aware characters given a bigger platform.

White Tiger: I’ll be real here, I really like White Tiger. Ava is a really cool girl, she is Latnix, she is friends with Dorren. Ava should be on the team cuz it’s my damn team and it just makes sense. Seriously she is always a stand out Avenger and has actually only been a highlighted character in Avengers related books.

Ken Shiga/Koi Boi:  Who you gonna call when people are near bodies of water? Well none other than Koi Boi. Ken is one of  Squirrel Girl’s best friends so I think he gets the invite to move up to an avengers team from her. He obviously wanting to be a force for good signs up for any extra chance of heroing. I imagine Ken as the spirit the person who is ready to stick his neck out even when all the chips are down. It’s also great to have a trans man on a team cuz trans characters in general don’t get to join up in the big leagues. Most importantly, Ken would be a really funny addition and would have nice comedic moments.

Kate Bishop: Kate Bishop has the ultimate super power, being good with a bow and arrow. Real talk though Kate is a funny character who would fit in with the rest of the team while being a bit more grounded. She really cares about doing good and she would be really into the idea of being on an Avengers team that is trying to talk things out instead of punch every problem.

America Chavez: The second America heard Kate was going to be on a team of heroes she would sign up. America and Kate are best girlfriends, who are dating in this book, you know gals being pals. She likely also wanted a cool chance to work with Dorren since they have meet before but never really hung out. Oh yah and she is a really powerful superhero who could really help take care of all the bad people they have to deal with. America would be the powerhouse of the team ready to bring the fists or feet needed to taking out a baddie.

Kamala Khan: Kamala Khan is the heart of anything she is in, this lovable nerd just makes so much sense on just about any line up. Obviously Kamala would have to not be committed to any other teams at the time but I think she would be very into the idea of this Avengers team. Fights baddies when you got to but talks things out at other times. Plus there is two adorable couples on this team, time to watch the OTPs in action am I right?

Loki: Goddess of Stories version to be particular, look I’m not going to make any list of Marvel characters unless it’s ones that suck that doesn’t include Loki. Loki is the gender fluid coolest enby around and my heart is always with Loki all the time. Loki pops into the reality deciding to revisit their home reality and is requested to join the new team by Dorren. Beyond that Loki is friends with Kamala, Dorren, America, and Kate. They are also Angela’s sibling so they would have good reason to join up when 6 out of the 9 other team mates are People Loki at least kind of cares about.  It be nice to have Loki on a team without the “Will Loki betray them” because Loki cares about this team.

Nadia Pym:  Ima be honest, I am just really excited for the Unstoppable Wasp by the amazing creative team of Jeremy Whitley and Elsa Carter (and a colorist and letterer that were not announced as far as I know at the time of writing this). I haven’t read much of Nadia but she is super smart and has assassination training. I love that she has a castle inside of a necklace where she does science, that is awesome. Every team needs someone brainy so Nadia in this book would be the person creating the tech for them.

thepoorwretchcomesreading replied to your post:checked out a blog recommended to me just now,…

Your tags kind of made me laugh because I got into danganronpa when I was 14, haha. I get this though; there’s a lot of negativity and drama on tumblr that’s awful to grow up around. When I was 13-ish tumblr was considered a place to escape teen drama for a while; now its just more catty high school drama with more politics :/

OH I FEEL YOU. Tumblr was veeery different when I joined too, I’ve been here way past my time -_-;; It was cringy in retrospect, and there was some stuff which has thankfully died (like reposting art without permission, which was way more common), but it was more free and fun for everyone. None of this walking on eggshells and having to share every single detail about yourself in your bio to protect yourself. I feel like tumblr and internet culture in general has shifted since then, though I can’t fathom why… but people feel more self-absorbed and willing to advocate their ideals through harsher methods these days.

And as for Danganronpa, you got into it way too young lol! Well, I don’t usually have a problem with younger people playing whatever (cause I also started playing darker games when I was young^^;), but… having played drv3 myself, I can’t help but think “a 15 year old should never play a game with the word ‘cum dumpster’ in it!” a little. Maybe I’m slowly becoming an old lady, haha. Personally I got into DR on somethingawful when I was 16-17-ish, which I feel might be more appropriate of an age lol. (DR must have an age restriction right…? I can’t remember what it is though). Not that I can blame 14-15 year olds for playing it, I was like that too at that age.

I also feel like the combination of media we consume, and internet culture’s effect on the way we consume said media, might be different these days… When I was younger (like, up until 2013-ish, when I turned 18), it was more simple to like whatever you liked, without having to fear tumblr’s moral crusade or having to make excuses to justify yourself. These days I feel like young people who entered this place too soon before learning how to be themselves with honesty might be in danger. They should build their identity in a safe and loving space, and tumblr sure as hell isn’t the place for that.

Can people stop trying to defend the shitty comments Benedict Cumberbatch made in relation to autism please?

His intentions about said comments don’t actually matter. Saying that Sherlock or Alan Turing being read as autistic is giving autistic people false hope is incredibly shitty, especially seeing as he’s (most likely) an allistic man with a huge fanbase and a lot of people listening to him. Especially because Sherlock’s best friend who’s also a doctor mentions (although this might be meant as a joke, but honestly that’d just make his comments shittier) his “Asperger’s” in The Hounds of Baskerville.

Playing heavily ASD coded characters and then calling people dangerous and lazy for reading said characters as autistic is really, really low, and when autistic people explain that it bad and adds to the stigmatization of us (though honestly him using autistic teenagers as research for his role as Frankenstein’s monster while saying that heavily ASD coded characters being read as having autism spectrum disorders is dangerous contributes more to our stigmatization tbh) the very least allistic people could do is to not talk over us and try to defend their awful fave
