Hence me saying he wasn’t perfect...
When you notice things like that, Ziggy did some tweaking of the leaping process. She can’t bring Sam back, but she can alter the leaping process itself since those would be “minor adjustments.”
Except Baratheton and Snowville would be allied with Starkville. Targaryburg, though? Perfect.
Lannisterton is kinda clunky, but I’m damned proud of Thanosota, haha.
What we need is Lannisterton to go in there and rough them up. Or possibly Thanosota. I’m not picky.
Or send him back even 100 years and he’d be a savior.
C’mon Jurassic Sunshine...
I was thinking about that. There were definitely violent aspects to the Civil Rights movement, and I think they ended up making people like King and other peaceful resisters look better because there was a clear contrast. Those in power had to face the truth that they could either change anti-POC laws, or eventually…
Not to mention that time Al inexplicably showed up on an alien planet and didn’t recognize Sam and actively threatened him. I guess Al’s leap really went a little ka-ka.
I think there was a lot of consistency, especially when it came to Sam and Al’s friendship. Binging the series, I’ve noticed that they really fleshed out their friendship and showed that they are beyond friends, beyond brothers. Like Guinan and Picard, or Sisko and Dax.
That episode was hilarious and poignant, but still made no fucking sense.
Okay, Killmonger definitely isn’t a good source of inspiration. But if you strip away the evil parts, the motivation — freedom from systemic oppression — is still sound. He’s just not the right champion for it.
Considering Gandhi was a misogynistic pedophile, I’m not sure he’s a reliable source of inspiration.
My definition of oppression is very clear. People of color being murdered by police and abandoned or outright persecuted by governments. Indigenous cultures suffering on reservations while governments do nothing. Western nations murdering innocent Muslim civilians en masse in a vain attempt to end terrorism. Women…
It was the first episode while he was the baseball player. He had just spoken to his father on the phone (posing as his cousin) and it inspired him to embrace the potential of his leaping, even though he still longed for home.
So it’s better to just suffer endlessly while those in power sit back and laugh?
Toomes was the first MCU villain that really made me feel bad for the villain. All he was trying to do was protect his family. He even went out of his way to only target alien tech appropriated by Stark. Even him killing his associate was an accident, not malicious.
I think we’ve been brainwashed to believe that violence against oppression is wrong. This allows the oppressors to do whatever the fuck they want while disregarding what they deem to be “acceptable” forms of resistance (i.e., resistance they can ignore).
