I'm confused. As far as I can tell from googling, Stephen Strange is white? Born in Philadelphia. Raised in Nebraska. Parents are Eugene and Beverly. He just looks like a tan white guy. And not even in all the pictures I can find of him. He has the same skin color as Tony Stark....

So?

I mean, how does the color of his skin change who his character is? There aren’t black dudes in Philadelphia? (I have been greatly misinformed about Philly. Someone should tell The Roots). Nebraska is only white? (It’s not. There is a 1.8% Asian population and the historical ancestry of the state puts it at 8.7 Mexican.)

Why can’t a renowned medical doctor be Israeli? Why can’t he be born in Tel Aviv? Why can’t a master of the mystical arts be East Indian?

WHAT DO HIS PARENTS NAMES HAVE TO DO WITH IT? My mother is a fucking proud, strong, German and Maori woman, and her name is Shelley. The whitest name on the fucking planet.

Why does he have to be white? Why does Tony Stark have to be white? Why do any of these fucking white men that have populated the Marvel Cinematic Universe have to be white?* Ya’ll are okay with Hulk fitting into Bruce Banner’s pants but HEAVEN FUCKING FORBID WE THROW A LITTLE DARKNESS INTO THE  MIX.

And please, please don’t tell me that it’s not book accurate because I’m pretty fucking sure that Asgard doesn’t have laser cannons and little flying dinghies but no one seemed to have a problem with that.

Look, I know he’s white. And I know Marvel Studios are going to cast another white dude in a lead role. I know I’m not going to get this, I know representation in Marvel movies is, as yet, relegated to sidekicks and secondary characters. Which is more than other studios do. But it’s not enough, it’s never going to be enough, and I’m not going to stop talking about it. Sorry honey, sorry to go off on you a little, but…yeah. This is a great chance for Marvel Studios to Do Better, and I know they’re not going to.

But hey maybe they’ll cast a black woman as Doctor Stephanie Strange WOULDN’T THAT BE A FUCKING TRIP.

(hah no no, a black woman in the mcu, where do I come up with this gibberish…)

*I have two personal exceptions to this when it comes to top-tier characters. Cap and Luke Cage, who I feel hold their race as an integral part of who they are, and how their history has unfolded.

IM SORRY BUT I CANT STOP LAUGHING BECAUSE WHEN I READ PHILADELPHIA MY INITIAL REACTION WAS TO START SINGING “IN WEST PHILADELPHIA BORN AND RAISED” AND THEN I REMEMBERED THAT THIS PERSON WAS USING PHILADELPHIA AS A REASON FOR SOMEONE BEING WHITE 

IN WEST PHILADELPHIA BORN AND RAISED IN A SANCTUM WAS WHERE I SPENT MOST OF MY DAYS CHILLIN OUT MAXIN AND RELAXIN ALL COOL CONJURING DEMONS OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL

WHEN A COUPLE OF MINDLESS ONES UP TO NO GOOD, STARTED RAISING DORMAMMU IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD. I GOT IN ONE WIZARD BATTLE AND CLEA GOT SCARED AND SAID YOU’RE MOVING IN WITH TONY AND THE AVENGERS IN BEL AIR

ngl I would watch Strange, Prince of Bel Air

Wut

nobody disillusion me by telling me this is photoshopped. I want to believe.

It’s times like these when you realize just how long Marvel’s been around and how long their main titles have been running.
tldr version: ‘solid dick’ used to be slang for straight-forward advice. So, no, that wasn’t a shop.

Not as well-known as the Joker boner comic, but just as delightful.

Can we bring this back

…Don’t you ever say that to me again. That is a repellent statement. It is a vomitous insult to every cop—to every fireman—every soldier alive who steps up to fight for those who can’t! I am sorry for your loss! But if you genuinely believe that only the death of a loved one can motivate a human being to take up a cause then get your pathetic, cynical ass out of my way so I can do my job!

IM CRYING THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I’VE EVER SEEN

Look at the actual painting, though.  Can we talk about the depths of Steve’s denial here?

if anyone ever draws this please have Cap using his shield as a palette
