A well dressed teenaged boy was just delivered to the location on W8th in a van. (There were also 2 adults males in the van). This was a transport vehicle driven by “Wilfred Brimley” (as we have affectionately named him.
It’s kind of creepy that Spider-Man Homecoming managed to depict high school better than every film about the X-Men, even though the most important location in X-Men is a goddamn school.
Like, Spider-Man Homecoming had female students playing Fuck, Marry, Kill, itself an acknowledgment that teenage girls can be as chatty about sex as boys are. It had a bully who acted like a bully because of strongly implied economic privilege (he’s the only kid we see who drives a car, which BTW is not his, it’s his dads) which is much more interesting than the typical jock archetype we normally get. It had a love interest who wasn’t just a pretty girl or a smart girl. It was extremely diverse with men and women of color abound, both for extras and in the main cast. Peter’s best friend was Asian. His main rival was Indian. His love interest was black. And the other primary female character who will probably be his lover interest going forward, also black.
X-Men doesn’t have much of that going for it. The school is a backdrop most of the time. It’s treated the same way as the Hellicarrier, or the Avengers tower, or the Batcave. We don’t really get to know a lot of the students all that much. There are two characters in this franchise (Rogue in the first trilogy and Jean Grey in Apocalypse) whose central arc revolves around them being considered weird and an outcast in a school filled with weirdos and outcasts. And for a franchise built around being a metaphor for the prejudice towards minorities, the kids in this school are like 95% white. Hell, the best movies in the franchise all have very little or nothing at all to do with the school.
Yeah, not much more to really say. That’s pretty strange. These are two franchise that became extremely popular because they connected strongly with teenagers. AKA. high schoolers. And while one of them has (finally) committed to depicting as believable and relatable a school as it can for as many teenagers as possible, the other just treats it like a backdrop for the ‘real’ story and action.

Sonny Carisi is a great boyfriend.
You had only been officially dating for a few months, but you knew it was the real deal. Sonny is thoughtful, sweet, funny…he’s every quality you’d want in a guy, and then some.
You met at Fordham Law, and although the two of you hit it off from the beginning, you weren’t quite ready to be in a relationship at the time. You texted every now and then, but you didn’t see much of each other after finishing school.
Then, a few months ago, Sonny nearly lost his life on the job, and that’s when he called you and asked you out for coffee.
“I don’t want to take things for granted anymore,” he’d said, his hand covering yours. “I think we both know there’s something here.”
