I was collecting the voice files from Disney Infinity when I noticed that Elsa’s are arranged and performed in a rather…amusing way.
Performed by Idina Menzel herself
7. beautiful animation
6. Idina Menzel’s voice
5. romance is a side dish, not the main course
4. ambiguous villains and complex characterization
3. the truth about love
2. the princess saving herself: an act of true love is performed by her, not on her—and it’s not a kiss, either
And the number one reason why Frozen is kind of amazing…
1. two unique, three-dimensional women who find strength in one another
don’t forget this hot piece of ass
Runaways V2 #18
aka the cover I will never get over
After conversation I’ve jsut had with one of my tumblr friends (I didn’t asked them if I can name them here, so I’m not doing it), I want to apologize for ever having any optimistic thoughs about Avengers Undercover. the fact it has characters I love in it and I wanted it to be good has blinded me to the fact it’s premise it’s still horribly albestist and insulting to people, who suffer from PTSD in real life. And while I have abbandonned those sentiments long time ago, I never issued formal apology, as I should have. For that I apologize. I apologize to people suffering from PTSD, that my fanboy got better of me and I was willing to let it slide how insulting the premise of this book is to you.
Hellyeahteensuperheroes will not, I repeat that, NOT, reblog any promotional material related to Avengers Undercover. It will reblog criticism and complaints, but not answers from series’ defenders, unless to rebuke their arguments. If you have problem with that, then better unfollow me immiediatelly. Because if I find anybody I follow making comments how “it’s just a story” or anything out of those lines, I sure as hell will unfollow you. No matter what, I don’t want to think my blog is providing entertainment for people who are willing to write out 7,5 millions of American citizens, including many war veterans,not to mentions people from all aroudn the world, just so they can enjoy a book.
Because lets be honest here. Arena was pissing me off, because it sent my favorite characters to get killed and sucked. This book is doing somethign much worse. It doesn’t insult people who like c-list characters, who one day might be back anyway. It insults millions of people all around the world, who have to struggle with their past traumas for the rest of their lives.
Thank you for making this post, and know you have my full support for taking this stance.
I think if anyone needs to apologize for failing to speak up sooner, however, it’s me. Others have already voiced their outrage regarding the apparent handling of PTS in the upcoming Avengers Undercover title and the problematic remarks made by the book’s writer, and while I found them troubling, I did brush aside their concerns.
In fact, I actually told Dennis Hopeless that while I did not like his previous book, I would give its sequel a fair chance, and even wished that it will do better than its predecessor. I only cared that characters I like would get to appear in another comic, and that it actually promised to be less horrible than the last one. Believe it or not, I actually was grateful for that.
When other pointed out how offensive some of the writer’s remarks were, I caught myself thinking “it can’t be that bad”, and that perhaps the defenders of this book had a point and we were just letting our dislike of Avengers Arena getting the better of us, blowing things way out of proportion.
Then I realized that I was doing what those affected by mental disorders have been fighting against for decades: I was marginalizing their suffering.
For that I’m sincerely sorry.
What finally made me speak up on the issue is that a very close friend of mine is in fact suffering from post-traumatic stress. I knew that he liked Marvel comics in the past, even though he hasn’t been keeping up with them in a long time. I was curious to hear what someone actually dealing with the condition thought about this upcoming “PTSD-book”, and whether the premise was really as problematic as other thought.
He gave me permission to quote some of his comments, so I would like to share what he had to say when I showed him some of the things mentioned in interviews:
I fucking died. I’m dead.
Goodbye my friends I’m gone.

Did You Know? Brad Bird, the writer and director of The Incredibles, based each of the characters powers on family archetypes. “The dad is always expected in the family to be strong, so i made him strong. The moms are always pulled in a million different directions, so I made her stretch like taffy. Teenagers…are insecure and defensive, so I made her turn invisible and turn on shields. Ten-year-old boys are hyperactive energy balls. And babies are unrealized potential,” says Bird
Yea that’s all great but where is my fucking sequel
