Ten reasons I like to imagine Luke as an aromantic asexual.
With extra pictures, ‘cause I like them.
Oh yeah this is so how it should have ended.
Iron man - then and now by Dan Mora
Iron Man Trilogy + The Avengers: Four movies of Pepper Potts putting Tony Stark in his place.

I hope DOFP has a lot of Blink. And that the next X-Men movie is Exiles and stars Blink. And basically that the X-Men franchise as a whole restructures itself around Blink. BLIIIIINK
that’d be pretty super great! :D
When you think about it, Blink is one of the great success stories of someone out (fans, creators, I dunno) there just not allowing a female character to be fridged.
When Blink was created in Phalanx Covenant X-Men cross over, she was created to die. She was a terrified child in a shitty situation, made some relationships and died. Everyone was sad for the rest of the issue and over all, no one’s life was affected. I think Paige remembered her once or twice afterwards.
Meanwhile, the fans were outraged and demanded that Blink be brought back to life.
As a kid, when Blink appeared in Age of Apocalypse, I’d always chalked up her inclusion as being due to unexpected popularity. Someone saw an opportunity to use this character that so many fans wanted to see, and they took it. I dunno, maybe fan demand had nothing to do with it. But for four months, we got a new Blink and it was great.
And then we got Exiles. Now minor plot device Blink was the lead character in an ongoing series. Mind: Officially Blown.
And Exiles and Blink and all those awesome characters got a pretty good run, but nothing lasts forever and eventually Exiles got rebooted, reformatted and recancelled a few times and it unsurprisingly died.
So no more AoA Blink.
Better resurrect the original 616 Blink after 15-ish years of being dead! And make her a main character in New Mutants!
And New Mutants gets cancelled and I can’t recall of Blink being heard of since then but but let’s put her in a movie.
I’m honestly amazed. This character has came from such humble beginnings (honestly, read Phalanx Covenant…Blink is a really one dimensional plot device that was clearly intended to contribute nothing but her own death to the narrative), amassed such a following and somehow became a leader with a film presence.
appreciate maria hill please
this scene is just golden because tony was never planning to reveal his identity as iron man. but right when blondie laughs and says ‘i never said you were a superhero’, she obviously hit a nerve and tony literally goes ‘alright, you wanna play? i can play’, LOOKS HER STRAIGHT FUCK IN THE EYE, AND TELLS THE WHOLE WORLD HE’S IRON MAN. A SUPERHERO.
well played tony
#the real winner here is christine#who is doing a great job at being a journalist#all she had to do was put a small dent in his man-ego and he outted himself as iron man#if it weren’t for her he probably would’ve kept quiet#the only person worthy of applause is christine everheart lmao#and i love how she refuses to stand up#you did a good job#four for you#people think that tony’s the winner here for going all like ‘boom im iron man’ but she made a superhero reveal his own identity#like#please#well played (via clintbarttons)
creeped out by how many people hate everheart tbh. her role in the movies was sleeping w/ tony and pepper literally called her trash for doing so, and this scene where she plays tony perfectly.
I’d say her role is even bigger. Remember that scene at the party? Christine’s not just a persistent journalist goading Tony into outing himself as Iron Man - she’s like the public conscience of the MCU. She’s the one who inspires Tony to fight with illegal arms trade that has been going right under his nose. She makes him face his own ignorance and indifference to the problem he’s indirectly causing.
Christine is one of the main triggers in Iron Man’s origins story. Never forget that.
this this this
It really bothered me that Christine wasn’t in IM3. She was too important to suddenly no longer be around.
…But the death wasn’t fake. Coulson actually did die.
And which deaths were faked (or at least not what they appeared to be)?
Captain America? Can’t really change that one. It’s kind of essential.
Bucky? Blame Brubaker; he’s the one who brought the dude back when being dead was Bucky’s defining trait.
If you ask me we could use one of the female characters have their death be revealed to be faked.
Since they’re the only ones who haven’t come back yet.

Help comes when the person identifies the change they want and starts to believe it can actually happen. Whether it is overcoming an impossible family situation, making a career or study change, standing up to an oppressor, gaining relief from chronic physical pain, igniting creative inspiration, feeling less alone, or beginning to value their self worth, at the root of suicidal feelings is often powerlessness to change your life – not giving up on life itself.
these are incredible words. I have never been able to articulate this.
