WHY Tony Stark was *amazing* in Spider-Man: Homecoming

If, by chance, you’ve yet to check out Spider-Man: Homecoming, I suggest checking it out before reading this article - lest you want certain plot points spoiled.

Still here? Well let’s get into it! 

Let me start by saying that Spider-Man: Homecoming was AMAZING! Wait, is that too on the nose? It was SPECTACULAR? Perhaps the ULTIMATE incarnation of the character in film to date? I mean, it was clearly SUPERIOR to the other films in almost every way. Okay, I’m done. Sorry, I can get pretty punny at times. But yeah, this movie.. it was awesome, for sure. Not only was it fun, it told a unique story unlike anything we’ve really seen in the MCU so far. While the stakes were high for Spider-Man, they weren’t really all that high in terms of the Universe, or the world, hell, not even for NYC. This was so ground level that the stakes seemed higher on the last season of Marvel’s DareDevil. Really. And that’s a good thing. I don’t need to see Spider-Man taking on a Living Planet or Stopping Hydra from taking over the world via S.H.I.E.L.D. Let me just watch good ol’ Spidey try to foil a few robberies for a couple of hours. You wouldn’t believe how entertaining it really is.

Sometimes, you do things and you do them not because you’re thinking but because you’re feeling. Because you’re feeling too much. And you can’t always control the things you do when you’re feeling too much.

It’s like a dance that is perfectly in sync, or a conversation filled with perfect understanding. Learn all about Fusion with Steven, Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and the rest of the Gems on Earth as they share what Fusion—and love—mean to them.

A perfect gift for Valentine’s Day or any special occasion.



As I check tumblr after being away from it all weekend it feels like issue of Concrete as been made clear. However, it’s personally important to me that I express my apologies as I am the one who responsible for the text written next to her.

I do not associate illiteracy with people of color. That’s just not where my mind goes. Had Concrete been under consideration for an episode, she, like all of the ideas for SU, would have been scrutinized carefully to prevent any careless mistakes like this. It’s a constant consideration to champion love and acceptance in all the episodes we make. But saying this now is meaningless to anyone who was hurt by my words. It’s too late. People make mistakes and I am currently one of those people. 

I can’t undo what I’ve done but I can offer you my sincere apology. I can let you know that I make it a point to learn from my errors even when accidental. And it is my hope that any mistakes I make in the future always end with a step forward in a positive direction. That’s how I can be better. That’s how we can be better.

Thank you,


You stole the sun for me
I stole the moon for you
together we stole the stars
and together we will build our own universe
