I think that one of my favorite things as a kid was right after a powwow my ma and I decided to go with her then fiance to an ice cream shop with some of our regalia and leathers still on. Out of nowhere a little girl comes out, points and yells:
“LOOK MOMMY! INDIANS!”
My ma without missing a beat turned around, pointed at her and screamed, “LOOK JEFF! A WHITE GIRL!”
What I love about All Might is that despite being the strongest and most popular hero, he’s not the slightest bit cocky?
Like he’s a sweet, polite guy who’s almost a little meek. When he was interrupted during the sports arc he very easily could have gotten mad and yelled about it but he didn’t?
Or when he was trying to chat up Endeavor? Even though he’s “the better hero” he had the humility to ask the #2 on how to teach his students. And seemed genuinely disheartened to see that Endeavor (still) hates him.
Asking Midoriya to come eat lunch with him instead of saying “Come eat lunch, I need to talk to you”. Just, asking for his time instead of deciding it’s already his.
His interactions with other teachers??
All Might is Very polite, maybe a little flashy but really he’s just the sweet dad figure who wants to help you but sometimes tells the worst dad jokes.
“Maybe I failed this time, but… I’m not giving up. I’ll show them I’ve got what it takes to make the hero course, and I’ll become a greater hero than all of you!” |
Happy Birthday to my lovely Aseel bby!
