Perfect.

It’s about fucking mutants stop trying to making this meaningful.

Media—comics, film, literature, video games—exist for us to find our own meaning and value in it. Especially mutants, which are a super powerful and accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control. Shut up.

The X-Men have been an allegory for racism ever since their creation you fucking idiot

If that hasn’t been blatantly obvious from the first issue you picked up, then I don’t know what kinda shit you’re on.

Also, fun fact, the movies show the divide between humans and mutants as an allegory for the LGBT+ civil rights movement going on now.

In a facebook post by X-Men movie writer Zach Stentz:

And in an interview on why he chose to play Magneto, Sir Ian McKellan said:

"I was sold it by Bryan [Singer, the director of the X-Men movies] who said, ‘Mutants are like gays. They’re cast out by society for no good reason. And, as in all civil rights movements, they have to decide: Are they going to take the Xavier line — which is to somehow assimilate and stand up for yourself and be proud of what you are, but get on with everybody — or are you going to take the alternative view — which is, if necessary, use violence to stand up for your own rights. And that’s true. I’ve come across that division within the gay rights movement.”

Just saying

Marvel has always been about seeing yourself within the characters. Spider-man even though he has super powers, has every day life problems. Making the right decisions, money issues, relationship issues, etc. etc. X-men have always been about discrimination. Whether it’s Race, gender, or sexual orientation. If you don’t like it, go read/watch DC movies about billionaires and aliens.

i just want a deadpool movie

And all that would happen is him jumping through different superhero movies. Interacting with the others and annoying them mercilessly

i’d pay for tickets for that. i’d fund that directly

and he occasionally turns to the camera to talk to the audience

can spiderman make a cameo appearance?

what do you mean cameo, spiderman’s the love interest

Rainbows overwhelm the sky as Deadpool officially joins the ranks of Marvel’s LGBTQIA community

fandom-forecast:

For years there’s been rainstorms obstructing the clarity of Deadpool’s sexuality but last night the skies cleared when current author Gerry Duggan confirmed Deadpool’s pansexuality on twitter.

…to the surprise of absolutely no-one.

Ms. Marvel returns as Muslim teen

Ms. Marvel, the 1960s-era comic book heroine who inspired a generation of teenage girls as a crime-fighting former U.S. Air Force officer in an impossibly tight costume, is making a comeback. But in the iconic character’s next incarnation, she will look very different. The role of the previously blonde, blue-eyed Ms. Marvel will be filled by a Muslim teen, Kamala Khan.
Khan, a 16-year-old high school student who lives in Jersey City with her Pakistani immigrant parents, can grow and shrink parts of her body and shape shift into other forms, The Associated Press reported.
But her real power might reside in helping teach the American public about what it means to grow up as a Muslim girl in the United States, activists said. Khan is the first Muslim lead character in a Marvel comic series.

more from the article, bold mine:






Ms. Marvel’s editor Sana Amanat told The Associated Press the series reflects the struggles of an ordinary teenager from a “desire to explore the Muslim-American diaspora from an authentic perspective.” 
[..]
Fakhraie says she was encouraged by the portrayal of Khan as a teenage girl with ordinary problems, who isn’t exoticized or represented as somehow different. “It’s stuff that a lot of Americans deal with,” she said. “Everyone has their problems, and they’re just going to portray them as problems, not as Muslim problems.”
Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso told The AP, “Kamala is not unlike Peter Parker," she said. "She’s a 16-year-old girl from the suburbs who is trying to figure out who she is and trying to forge an identity when she suddenly bestows great power and learns the great responsibility that comes with it."

I wanna begin saying a story about my son. I have a four-year old son who loves superheroes from Spider-Man to Iron Man to Batman. He’s got all the costumes. One day he looks at me and says ‘Dad, I want to be light-skinned so I could be Spider-Man. Spider-Man has light skin.’ That was sort of a shock. This is why I am excited to be a part of the Marvel Universe, so I could be hopefully provide that diversity in the role of the superhero.
