This is where fandom angers me by mischaracterizing Jane Foster as some shy wilting flower with anime eyes clinging to Thor like a damsel in distress because EXCUSE ME

Jane Foster drove a fucking TRUCK into a LIGHTING STORM

Jane Foster broke a (as far as she knew) delusional, strange man out of a hospital to help him get his hammer back from a shitload of government agents

Jane Foster STAYED and HELPED EVACUATE CITIZENS after the Destroyer came for Thor

And that’s not even STARTING on the shit she pulled in Thor 2

Jane Foster is exactly the same off-the-cuff, zero-self-preservation, stubborn little shit as skinny!Steve was only she does it for SCIENCE instead of JUSTICE and if you don’t love Jane Foster I invite you to check yourself so hard

Spider-man represents the everyman, but he represents the underdog and those marginalized who come up against great prejudice which I, as a middle-class straight, white man, don’t really understand so much. When Stan Lee first wrote and created this character, the outcast was the computer nerd, was the science nerd, was the guy that couldn’t get the girl. Those guys now run the world. So how much of an outcast is that version of Peter Parker anymore? That’s my question.

Viola Davis is a freaking tour de force. As she slowly peels back her wig, her eyelashes and wipes away her makeup, you can just see Annalise come undone. She doesn’t say a word, but you can feel the pain radiating off her. It gave me the chills. (x)

She removes her wig, her eyelashes, her makeup, never breaking eye contact with the reflection of her natural self. It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful. And let’s not forget that that wasn’t just Annalise taking it off: It was Davis, too—Davis, who remains brave in a world where a New York Times critic can get away with calling her “less classically beautiful.”
