Posting this because as I walked past it today I was reminded that powers cocreator Mike Oeming drew the first issues of powers in a security booth for a parking lot in the middle of the night.
( And I know some people are working their nightmare jobs during the day or night and writing and drawing in their every waking moment of free time. it can be done.)Cool choice to use comic sans for your show logo, bribri
Reminder that Comic Sans is so widely used because it is easier to read for kids and for people with reading disabilities and dyslexia, due to the distinction of the letters and the variable weights of each limb. (source: [x])
So you’re really going through with this?
#lets take a moment to appreciate this deleted scene #lets take to look at our lives and realize how neglected Rhodey is in our fandom #look at this man for a moment #i know the scene wasnt in the movie but that doesnt say any less of rhodey #he is loyal and he has faith in tony #he has faith in the asshole best friend he has and his ability to survive #because rhodey knows tony is better than he thinks he is #and rhodey would even take a bullet before he stops having faith in tony #that and the fact that he’d do anything to save tony is probably the top 5 reasons why i love him #rhodey #feels again #sorry #there should be a parallel of this and that scene when Steve doesnt listen to Colonel Phillips and goes save Bucky’s ass…
We can’t keep risking assets, least of all you. You know any of these guys would walk through fire to have your career.
Rhodey is a Lt. Colonel in the Air Force and one of their best men across the board. But somehow people tend to write him as an asshole with no skills or talents beyond being a shitty friend to Tony. This general doesn’t want to risk one of his best soldiers in the search for Tony Stark, and that soldier is Rhodey. On Tony’s jet when they’re drunk and babbling and Rhodey tells Tony that he has it in him to be a hero and a great man, Tony’s response is pretty much, “I can’t do that, I’m not like you,” basically just saying “you’re a great man and a hero and I could never measure up to you.” Tony sees what this General sees in Rhodey, that he’s talented and valuable to both the military and Tony personally. There’s even another deleted scene where Tony and Rhodey are out in the fray together while he’s being kidnapped, and Tony is a screaming mess, just yelling Rhodey’s name in a “come save me” manner.
I want to see more of Rhodey The Hero in MCU fanworks. Rhodey The Full-Bird Colonel. Rhodey The MIT Grad And Engineer. Rhodey The Asset That The Military Would Sacrifice Its #1 Arms Manufacturer For. Rhodey The Person That Tony Cries Out For During A Hail Of Bullets. Rhodey The Best Friend of Tony Stark. Rhodey The Man Who Rescued Tony, And Wouldn’t Give Up Until He Did.
I could even deal with people not shipping Rhodey with folks and just writing him in a more positive canon-accurate way. Just stop erasing him, because he exists and is a big part of Tony’s life. At that point in the film, he is the biggest part of Tony’s life.
“Rhodey The Asset That The Military Would Sacrifice Its #1 Arms Manufacturer For.”
Just wanted to emphasize that one. Tony talks about a military industrial complex that isn’t being held accountable, and yeah I’m sure that’s true in real life as well as the MCU, but in this particular case it’s the CIVILIANS who need to be held accountable—it’s Tony Stark and Obadiah Stane, the weapons’ manufacturers, who have to shut it down or BE shut down. Whereas this two-star general KNOWS that Rhodey is worth TEN Tony Starks. The military respects Rhodey and Rhodey respects the military, and TONY respects the military in large part because he’s seen again and again a prime example of an officer and a gentleman in James Rhodes.
Forcing men to pay for women’s birth control is equality for everyone?
Manslation: I don’t understand feminism OR health insurance. Like, at all.
Femslation: everything should be free for me because i have tits and a pussy.
For fuck’s sake, let me break it down for you assbaskets who won’t stop with this bullshit.
Under federal law, birth control is supposed to be a guaranteed provision of any and every health insurance plan.
A woman works at a job that in turn provides her with a compensation package, part of which is her health insurance. This is also called an EARNED BENEFIT. And in most workplaces, the insurance is not completely covered by the company, so the employee chips in from their own paycheck. So not only is health insurance an EARNED BENEFIT, it is also PAID FOR in the form of premiums.
Are you with me so far? Did you follow how the woman both WORKS FOR and PAYS FOR her health insurance? Good!
Insurance coverage is based on a concept called RISK POOLING, or “the spreading of financial risks evenly among a large number of contributors to the program.” This means that in paying your own premium, you are also indirectly contributing to the health care received by others. So that means EVERYONE* pays for birth control. EVERYONE pays for your precious dick pumps. EVERYONE pays for childbirth and vasectomies. Birth control is a MEDICINE, not a LUXURY.
Therefore, when companies like Hobby Lobby attempt to deny their employees access to a MEDICINE that is supposed to be GUARANTEED COVERAGE under FEDERAL LAW, women aren’t fucking whining about not getting something for free or demanding that men pay for it: they’re being denied the medical care that they have earned, worked for, and paid for. You are 100% full of shit. Bye.
*changed this from “both men and women” because people who identify as nonbinary have insurance too
THANK YOU for articulating this. Every time someone brings this shit up I get so angry I have a hard time doing that.
