Yeah, women are worthy.

  • Jane Foster in What If? #10 (1978)
  • Storm in X-Men Annual #9 (1985)
  • Rogue in What If? #66 (1994)
  • Wonder Woman in DC Versus Marvel #3 (1996)
  • Black Widow in What If: Age of Ultron #3 (2014)

Wait wait so Rogue can handle Thor’s hammer without sucking out its powers, yeah? Is what it looks like anyway. 

So, uh, what is the deal with this new “THOR IS A WOMAN OMG” stuff? O_o 

comic book dude bros being stupid?

but long story short, there’s a storyline going on right now in the main comicverse (616) called Original Sin and something is going to happen in it to make Thor unworthy of the hammer so it’s going to go to someone else. It’s just coincidence that’s it’s a woman.

For once, I might really be into a comic. Will have to see how the writers write a female Thor (please let there be progressive female writers on the staff), but this is promising and historic! Loving it!

Come With Me Now

angelamarrerobandoms:

This video is perfect for me right now. I’m on the verge of change because it is necessary. I just saw Kongos about three weeks ago (and they were just as amazing as I thought they would be). I am inviting you (as of this writing—all THREE of you!!) to come with me on my journey of change and hope. I will quickly outline it here for you:

Two nights ago I was walking the dogs as usual, and I heard what I thought was a 6-year-old chid crying. Several kids in the neighborhood were playing, but I didn’t see any children hurt, or alone. Quickly I realized it was our next-door-neighbor’s adult son, who is 39, not 6, having a melt-down. He is “one of those” who has never seemed to be able to find his place in life. Once he told me that it was his nature to be a perpetual “fuck up.” He’s bright, he’s attractive, yet he has never found himself and I think his melt-down is largely due to the fact that he’s about to be a father for the second time, and he still hasn’t found himself. Most of our neighbors seem to think of him in a negative light, but I see so much of myself in him, although I have always known myself but have never felt at liberty to BE myself. I became a wife at 19. A mom at 21. A single mom at 24. I re-married at 29, and with that came even more obligations and pressures. Presently, the pressure is to carry insurance for the family because I have lupus, Sjogren’s Syndrome & chronic migraine/temporal lobe epilepsy. Basically, I’m too sick to work full time, but also too sick to not work full time. It’s a horrid catch-22.

Hubs has his own private law practice. We tried getting private insurance—it costs $20k per year PLUS a $6k deductible PLUS it doesn’t cover any of my illnesses, nor his high blood pressure nor any heart issues. I HAVE to work. And it’s killing me.

At least the work I know and have been doing for the past 25ish years is killing me. I can take on other jobs that don’t entail the same level of stress, that I think will work (and not make me sick—autoimmune diseases + stress = extra no fun migraine time for me in addition to the RA symptoms, crippling fatigue, compromised immune system & infections, brain fog & inability to use my fingers…the migraines, by far, are the worst so far, though).

So, Come With Me Now as I enter a new year (birthday is next week - and I will be seeing Jack White in St. Louis to celebrate—look for a Jack White/White Stripes/Dead Weather…possibly even Raconteurs post in the coming week!), and a new way of life. I’m getting too old to SETTLE. Let’s do this!

There are so many reasons we want to move to Central America. Here’s a glimpse of how I see Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama. We’ve narrowed down where we want to live to those three countries. We were very hyped on Costa Rica, but Panama is romancing ex-pats more. We have been going into this very carefully…started talking about this more than three years ago. We are in serious mode now. I am, at any rate. I think hubs is too.
It’s scarier for him than it is me. I can always freelance. I also speak Spanish fairly fluently, so I could get into jobs related to the travel industry, which is what I went to school for many moons ago & I have front desk hotel experience as well as counter, gate and customer service experience in the airlines. I can find work there.
Now that this isn’t a pipe dream, I want to blog about it. We just spent ten days in Costa Rica & Nicaragua. Met with a realtor there. Met with other ex-pats. After a winter like this one, we are more than motivated to move!
Commence the simplification of all our “junk” in Illinois. Spring cleaning will have an entirely new meaning this year.
