Hi everyone! krusca here announcing an exciting new project for the marvel fans on tumblr!
Me and laireshi were not… happy about the direction marvel is taking Tony Stark in with Superior Iron Man (along with the current run of IM) and so I suggested that we just create our own Iron Man comic run, and well, she ran with it. And now it’s a thing. Instead of talking about how unhappy we are with the characterization of Tony Stark, we’re going to create our own Iron Man comic that we (and hopefully all of you who are not satisfied with Marvel’s IM run) would want to read.
I am aware that this is a huge undertaking, and the likelihood of this project crashing and burning are very high, but we want to try. And this is where all of you come in. If you’re a writer, artist, or have good ideas and want to contribute to this project, we are open to accepting members! We’re currently in the brainstorming stages, waiting to see what’ll happen in Hickmanverse as well as AXIS before jumping from canon there.
If you’re interested, PLEASE READ THIS (LENGTHY) GOOGLE DOC. It outlines the tryouts for positions (which won’t be held till November 2014), responsibilities, guidelines and a schedule of this project!
If after reading it, you want to participate, please send your gmail over to laire at laire.shi at gmail and you will be added to the gdocs!
If you can’t contribute, but are excited for this, please use our tag#earth t (like a marvel multiverse designation…but t for tumblr) to cheer us on, and signal boost this post!(I’m sorry but unless you can actually contribute, it’s better that you stay away from all our behind the scenes stuff… after all you wouldn’t want to be spoiled would you? :] )
Lastly this is a non-profit project, meaning no money will be involved. We are doing this for our love of (616, sorry MCU fans not this project) Marvel and the characters, and if we actually manage to create something, they will be released on the internet for everyone to read for free!
Thank you all so much and I hope to see you guys all in the gdocs!!!

Please signal boost! ;o;

It reminds me of the “bike to work” movement. That is also portrayed as white, but in my city more than half of the people on bike are not white. I was once talking to a white activist who was photographing “bike commuters” and had only pictures of white people with the occasional “Black professional” I asked her why she didn’t photograph the delivery people, construction workers etc. … ie. the Black and [Latin@] and Asian people… and she mumbled something about trying to “improve the image of biking” then admitted that she didn’t really see them as part of the “green movement” since they “probably have no choice” –

I was so mad I wanted to quit working on the project she and I were collaborating on.

So, in the same way when people in a poor neighborhood grow food in their yards … it’s just being poor– but when white people do it they are saving the earth or something.

Has there been any mention in the solicits of what’s going to happen to actual old man Steve Rogers?

Because I’ve decided that the only way I will ever accept Superior Iron Man is if Tony turns villain out of his increasingly desperate attempts to find a way to help Steve.

Maybe Extremis is the answer? 

I haven’t seen anything about Steve’s actual future, but if this isn’t the way they write it, then this should be ficced. Because I can totally see it, too!

Steve loses the serum for whatever batshit insane reason the Marvel writers come up with (I haven’t seen their reasoning behind it anywhere, lol) and Tony freaks the fuck out, realizes that Arno’s (oh hey look he’s useful afterall!) experimentation with Extremis in the current Iron Man book has possibility, and moves across to the opposite coast. I’m pretty sure I remember the blurb about Superior Iron Man having him on the West Coast instead of the East Coast, and along this reasoning, the reason why he goes there is because he’s experimented in lab test after lab test for the Extremis and gets nowhere, nothing that would fix Steve at least, and Arno finally says, whispering a siren song into his ear, “We need live subjects. Then we can save Steve.”

And for some reason Tony agrees. He moves out to the West Coast, opens Extremis up to the public, and starts experimenting on them in small doses, a few dozen at a time, seeing what it does to them, seeing how to tweak it best. And finally when he has a result that works, one that he can use on Steve to fix him, to make him not die (because that would be Tony’s priority over making Steve strong again, of course, is making him not old and about ready to keel over), he deactivates the Extremis from the public (possibly with much argument from/a fight scene with Arno, who secretly wanted it all to himself *cue dramatic music!*) and goes back to the East Coast, ready to save Steve.

Filed under missbeckywrites i'm long winded as fuck okay

Somewhere a rocket scientist brain surgeon physicist with a knack for economics who wears Velcro shoes is having a stress breakdown.

When I was a professional ballroom dance instructor, one of my coworkers was having a tough time teaching a step to her student. As he gets more frustrated she tells him “it’s ok- you’ll get it- this isn’t rocket science.”
There is an awkward pause as her student stares back at her."No" he agrees, "this isn’t rocket science. That I can do. This is some sadistic step designed specifically to torture rocket scientists.”
And that’s how we found out he worked for NASA.
