when did mark millar give you a brownie though. was it like in some official capacity? or did he just pull one from his pocket, kind of linty, and hold it out silently, dead-eyed and leering, until you took it?

also fair warning, idk how much pre-MCU iron man you’ve read but comics tony is….different. those fics aren’t actually too far off the mark (they go a little overboard in the shippy parts, but i mean. like i mind.)

a) WIZARD WORLD CHICAGO WAS MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND i was getting something (probably something ultimates-related) signed and i mentioned it was my birthday and he was like “here, have a brownie!” he is a true gentleman ok. also this was like. in high school. actualvampireang may actually have been there for this? i can’t remember what year …. things …….. happen though. 

b) i know he’s a substantially different character, but no i have not read too terribly much comics iron man? on account of how i literally did not give a single fuck about any avengers or avengers-adjacent book that did not have a word in the title than implied “here there be teenagers” until … uh … like, a month ago?

i am still very confused about how all this happened

This was the Wizard World Chicago we went to together with Merrick, but I wasn’t there for meeting Millar because I think I was feeling crappy and slept in that day instead of going to the thing. You had him sign my copy of Red Son.

okay though if there’s anything that struck me on rewatching the first Cap movie it’s how much Steve and Bucky are such assholes to each other and it’s amazing

and like can you just imagine recovered!Bucky and Steve going on missions together and Steve being like

"wow Buck that thing you did there was actually kind of smart, all the stupid must’ve grown out in your hair"

and Bucky being all

"you might not know this, Steve, but there’s this thing we say these days that might be really useful for you to know and it goes like this: go fuck yourself"

and all the other avengers looking at each other like we read about you in history books, you are national heroes, what even

hello this is a text post in support of bucky barnes: accidental hipster, who wears steve’s huge plaid button-downs over natasha’s too-tight jeans and a pair of old doc martens sam was going to donate to goodwill, because those are the clothes that are around and who gives a shit? bucky barnes: accidental hipster, who goes out in steve’s plastic framed on-the-run glasses because he misses the eye protection his googles used to provide. bucky barnes: accidental hipster, who buys vinyl because he was born in 1917 and drinks his coffee black for the same reason. BUCKY BARNES: ACCIDENTAL HIPSTER. that’s all thank you goodbye

AH, I HAVE DISCOVERED WHY I HATE YOUR GUTS.

He acts like Star Trek is no longer needed for its ability to address social issues, so now why not just turn it into a bright and shiny action flick and nothing else? Dizzy bastard.

He took a project on without really realizing what it meant to so many people. I’m not just talking about those “crazy” nerds that stand in lines at conventions for hours. I’m talking about Martin Luther King Jr., who begged Nichelle Nichols not to quit the show. I’m talking about the hundreds of men and women that joined the navy or airforce, worked in the space industry, or became astronauts because of Star Trek. He’s forgotten all those people. He didn’t have faith that Star Trek in its purest form could reach all people– because it never reached him. So he molded it into something very different to fit a societal standard of action movies that pervades Hollywood today. 

He missed that mark. And he pats himself on the back for it.

it’s the mlk / nichelle nichols bit that really hammers things home for me where jj dropped the ball on this franchise.

like, he wants it to be accessible popcorn entertainment without as much heady philosophy, i can get that, i can even get behind it to a point, except it’s also completely ridiculous coming out of his mouth bc //what do you think lost was jj//.  also this and the other gifset misses out the part where he says he finally got way into star trek during production and now loves it.  (though the preponderance of enterprise references and the dip in ambition between movies does remind me more of voyager playing it safe than ds9 taking risks, but paramount stopped believing in the idealism of the franchise themselves about fifteen years ago so that’s not even surprising.)

no, it’s the fact that uhura even //existing// was revolutionary in the eyes of martin luther king jr.  in //nineteen sixty seven//.

in 2009?  chekov being a russian dude wasn’t diversity.  five of the seven main cast being white males wasn’t diversity.  less than a third of the characters with names and dialogue being not-white-males wasn’t progress.  //half of the female characters dying// wasn’t progress.  the female uniforms being sexy sexy where the men get practical clothing was the //opposite// of progress.

and hey, they didn’t bother to mix up the core seven by making chekov a russian //girl// genius or bones idris elba or spock sendil ramamurthy or kirk katee sackhoff or whatever.  but it’s okay, that’s only seven characters out of an infinite canvas.  and they did another movie, they levelled up, they added nothing but diversity to the cast, right?

replaced tyler perry with peter weller.  kirk wakes up in bed with //literal japanese catgirl twins// who aren’t named or seen again.  all the poc and aliens are (still) background scenery.  there are women wearing something other than the sleeveless gogo skirt //but only in the background//.  the new villain, who was a man of color as strong, smart, and capable as kirk back in the 60s / 80s, is now a white man with a desi name.  8/10 of the major characters are still white men.  and the only character written as a person of color is //still// zachary quinto.

jj, this is my problem.  you have officially failed to represent the future as //better//.  you’ve adopted a ridiculous colorblind ideology that amounts to ignoring the varied experiences of not-white-males, but failed to pair it with //casting mostly or even just 50% not-white-males//.

in the future, men are still disproportionately represented in the workforce?  //white// men still dominate all the hierarchies of power?  the only important places on earth are in the usa and great britain?  less than half the named characters are women?  we have transfer students from other planets but there are only terrestrial minorities in crowd shots?  white people are a demographical minority worldwide //today// but don’t tell the future that?

in 2004 edward james olmos, talking about new galactica, commented that that was the first time we’d seen latinos in space.  //that shouldn’t still be true//.

white people’s ideas of the future are TERRIFYING.

fuck nu trek

this is why i never gave a shit about it and will continue to not give a shit about it
