Ruffled Feathers and Jerked Knees

The Misadventures of a Newbie Superhero Girl


Remember how Tom Brevoort made this big thing a few months ago about how diversity is important but teams like the Avengers need to be composed of A-list heroes first and foremost?

Awww 3.

I think it’s important here that the misandry/straw feminism was shown

Yeah, there are issues all over the place here

Could really do without the fatphobia

It’s kind of hilarious how Chibiusa isn’t like “but men are all right”

Oh hey are they giving her her Japanese name this time around

Is Sailor Moon poised for a comeback?

To be completely fair, in the manga both Usagi and Chibiusa kissed Mamoru and Helios respectively when they were unconcious as well (to wake them up using magic though) in deliberate reversal of the trope

1. I can’t recall but I’m pretty sure that neither Tony nor Steve have ever stated their sexuality.

It saddens me that DC has this policy that doesn’t allow their writers to talk about the sexuality of the former Robins unless they are *straight.*


I find it weird because I feel like they’re presuming that all of their “straight” characters are a 0 on the Kinsey Scale.
