beatrice_otter: Wonder Woman--Black and White (Wonder Woman)
It is an AWESOME movie.  Yes, there need to be more women of color.  Yes, the ending is ableist as shit.  But the rest of it is SO GREAT, HOLY COW YOU GUYS.

One thing that left me raising my eyebrows: spoiler] )
beatrice_otter: Captain America (Captain America)
You have all heard the terribly, terribly antisemitic thing Marvel has just done, yes?  Wherein they made Cap a Hydra!Nazi?  Thus shitting over the entire reason his creators made him?  And their Jewish heritage?  And turning the Shoah into sensationalist fodder to sell comics?

In reaction to that, yesterday was Jewish Comics Day.  Lots of great fic, art, and meta about Jewish comic book characters and creators was made and recced yesterday.  The tumblr tag is here and the AO3 collection is here.  Go check it out!

If you are a comics person, please boycott any comic with Steve Rogers in it, and tweet/email Marvel telling them why.  Yes, we all know this will turn out to be mind control or an alternate universe or something like that, but that doesn't change the fact that it is really, really a terrible thing to do and Marvel will only realize that if they get hit in the pocket book about it.
