We dangerous ones

Aaah, the Lethifold! One of my favourite creatures from reading the book as a child. Thanks to @zinfandelli for suggesting it as a creature, I was psyched to draw Credence with one. 
(And of course I saw the official design on the bluray just as I was about to start colouring, and had to change up a bunch of stuff from my sketch haha)

One thing I really loved about Wonder Woman was how well they treated Charlie, who was obviously neurodivergent and suffering from PTSD
When his mental illness got in the way of his job his friends didn’t get angry at him or blame him, they comforted him, took him to the side, and found ways to work with him, they assured him of his usefulness and treated him with understanding and kindness

It’s Not a Competition!

Some fans are using Black Panther to diminish Wonder Woman. First of all, Black Panther comes out in 2018 so why the pettiness? They are literally not competing against each other for audiences. One has an Israeli female lead the other has an African-American male lead. There is no good reason to take shots especially when Wonder Woman has proven itself to be a great movie. We don’t know how Black Panther will turn out, and Marvel has dropped the ball multiple times when it comes to portraying their characters. Praising Black Panther is very premature and using it to belittle other movies is immature. Now is Wonder Woman’s time for celebration.

I also don’t know why some Black Panther fans are attacking Wonder Woman based on black representation. Of course it has more black representation when it’s set in Wakanda, Africa. That doesn’t make Wonder Woman any less a champion of social progressivism. Several of the black Amazons did have both action and speaking roles. The goal isn’t one movie trying to represent everyone. The goal is for Hollywood to have more diverse movies. We shouldn’t be fighting over the few movies we have that aren’t about white males and pitting them against each other.

If you’re going to take jabs against Wonder Woman using the The Dora Milaje, I’ll counter by pointing out the fact that The Dora Milaje in Black Panther are a group of female bodyguards literally under a patriarchy. They don’t even compare with the superhuman, immortal Amazons who are an entire nation of ethnically diverse warrior women with an elected government. Now let’s behave and learn to celebrate both movies for what they contribute to diversity.  

  • Joss Whedon: Diana Prince has never known suffering and she needs to be broken down and humiliated and belittled until she understands what it is to suffer like a human
  • Me: No
  • Patty Jenkins: Diana Prince is an idealist who believes in a simplistic heroic narrative where a single battle with an unambiguously evil enemy is the way to end the war and she needs to learn about humanity's complexity and how war is more than just good vs. evil
  • Me: Yes yes yes yes yes
