Adapt to this
LET ME JUST POINT OUT THE VARIOUS FLAWS OF LOGIC HERE. FIRST OF ALL DARWINS POWER IS TO LITERALLY ADAPT TO ANYTHING IN THE EFFING UNIVERSE. HIS POWERS DEEMED IT TOO DANGEROUS TO FIGHT THE HULK AND TELEPORTED HIM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE ONCE BECAME PURE COSMIC EFFING ENERGY AND SHORTLY AFTER REMATERIALIZED AS A HUMAN BEING TO PREVENT HIS DEATH. DARWIN IS LITERALLY INEFFINGVINCIBLE. AND YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT A PATHETIC BALL OF KINETIC ENERGY FROM SEBASTIAN SHAW MERKS HIM?!?!?! THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE OUT TO KILL THE BLACK MAN IN THE PLOT AND LITERALLY WROTE THIS SCENE WITH NO REGARDS TO DARWINS POWERS WHATSOEVER AND ITS FRUSTRATING THAT THEY WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO KILL HIM OFF LIKE THAT
I’m saying. Even in sci fi we ain’t safe
in my headcanon darwin literally became a being of energy and ascended to another plain of existence so he doesn’t have to deal with anymore of this white nonsense
Even in Scifi? We not safe in real life.
thank you I’ve been saying this for the longest!!!!! He is a damn omega level mutant, meaning in the movie he would be a class 5! Dude even adapted into a God and became the God of Death! Dude was college educated in the comics and they made him a taxi driver…like Black folks weren’t educated in the 70’s. And they didn’t even acknowledge that he was an Afro Latino…his name is Armando Munoz, he’s one of the few Afro latino superheros and they did him so dirty.
A movie that’s a metaphor for prejudice/racism/etc did the black guy dirty.
Yep. This was some white nonsense for real
wow. i knew none of this but now i know why i felt so gross about this scene. of course the nazi mutant kills the Black man and it didn’t seem to make any sense to me because of how they described his power in the movie made it fairly clear he was able to adapt to anything. so… they did just wanna kill a Black man and it sucked.

I did meet a fake geek girl once.
We were at school and she started to casually drop in that she liked comics/games/”geek stuff”, at the time I was wearing an iroman shirt. Deeper into the conversation i found that she didn’t know what I meant when I was referring to anything about the characters. When I questioned her about it a few days later she admitted that she had really just said it to get to know me better.
We ended up dating and while we were dating she got really into comics, DC especially, and found out that she really did enjoy the things she first said she did. I took her to her first convention. She met another guy there and ended up breaking up with me for him.
I went on to discover I was gay and fucked her brother.
Morel of the story. Comics lead to sex in the most unexpected ways.
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
It means well, and it’s good to dream, but…yeah.
Flat, bills-only fee to live in my apartment, buy food, and pay my various and sundry bills, the worst of which is a $100 a month credit card payment? $1700.
Total amount I’ve made writing creatively over the last four years since I decided I needed to go for it? Approximately $200.
Shut up about this shit. Just, shut up about it. People don’t work shitty jobs because they’re too afraid to do what they love. People work shitty jobs because STUFF COSTS MONEY.
And people who want to do what they love generally want to do creative things WHICH RARELY PAYS OUT IN LOTS OF MONEY.
I have friends who work 100+ hours a week to do what they love (making comics) and also work day jobs to pay the bills and help them make more comics. It’s fucking exhausting just watching them some nights. They are doing what they love, and they’re willing to put in the time, and the thing is, if you want to do what you love, you have to PUT IN THE FUCKING TIME. And that may mean not sleeping a lot. That may mean taking shit jobs.
You can do what you love. You should do what you love. But don’t fucking idealize it as the solution to your problems. It is, in some ways, your big problem, and it’s the fact that you love it that makes it worthwhile to pursue.
Another problem with this form of thinking is that it severely devalues the people who work “dirty jobs” that no one wants to do. No one goes out into life and passionately wants to be a janitor or a waitress or an administrative assistant. And yet there are hundreds of thousands of people working these kinds of jobs.
They are not lesser because they chose to work a job that they’d dreamed about since childhood. They are not stupid because they didn’t “follow their passions”. You do not get to judge them and find them wanting for choosing to pay their mortgage and fund their kids’ education.
Sure, sometimes people find a career that is intensely fulfilling and also pays well! But just as many people work a job that they don’t particularly love, and then use that job to fund hobbies outside of that. And they too live truly joyful lives.
Yeah, life isn’t that easy, it creates more work for everyone else when someone “follows their dream” earning no money and in return claims benefits (yay Britain) just stop. Work towards your dream, earn some money, you have to do what you have to do but there’s no excuse for telling people with nothing that it’s their own fault for not following their dream.
I was gonna reblog this with a bit of sighing exasperation at the naive, but well-meaning sentiment
but I see that’s been done already, so.
Yeah, I’m hella passionate about having a place to live and keeping food/ electricity in it, so. Yeah.
Artist gets kudos for not knowing how the fucking world works. “What would I want to do every day if money was no object”? Money IS a problem, in case you forgot. And trust me; everyone wants to live comfortably. But some people have other aspirations, such as taking care of their spouses or children. And who are you to say doing something that isn’t what you love /has/ to be something you hate?
Oh and you love knitting so open a yarn shop, hm? I guess I’ll get right on purchasing the property… funding construction… getting startup supplies and furniture… paying for water and electricity… paying coworkers… garnering clientele… branding and advertising… city funds… and all before living expenses. Yeah, eat me.
Not everyone can just wake up one morning and open a business. Some of us have parents that were already struggling to begin with. Huge investment loans are typically out of the question without some amount of backing; a luxury most people DO NOT have. On top of that, since you don’t know how running a business works, you’re most likely going to be STRUGGLING for a decade, if not more - and that’s if the business doesn’t simply fall flat and leave you with absolutely nothing. Opening a fresh business is a risk for everyone involved. And if it doesn’t make the money you need, living comfortably is out of the fucking question.
"Follow your dreams"? No. Get that Disney shit right the fuck out of here. Living your passion makes you happy but money can make you happy in another way. Learning to accept that is part of being an adult. Money is not just "worthless scraps of paper". It’s the virtual opposite since money is essentially the only thing that has anything resembling worth to begin with. It keeps you alive. It gets you what you need. And then it gets you more than "living comfortably" which might involve… I don’t know… your passion, perhaps? If you want to succeed you can’t just magically make it happen at your whim. To think otherwise is a fucking fantasy.
