Bookoisseur

I read. I write. I spend all together too much time on the internet. I talk incessantly about books, TV and movies. I write for Hello Giggles, and tweet frequently as Bookoisseur.

LADY SHE-WOMAN: FEMALE SUPERHERO CODENAMES AND IDENTITY
By Andrew Wheeler
Monica Rambeau is on her fourth superhero codename. In the pages of Mighty Avengers she’s Spectrum, having previously gone by Captain Marvel, Photon and Pulsar. The Captain Marvel identity now belongs to Carol Danvers, also on her fourth codename after Ms. Marvel, Binary and Warbird. Her first codename now belongs to Kamala Khan, the fourth Ms. Marvel after Danvers, Sharon Ventura and Karla Sofen.

But Carol is actually the third woman (and seventh character) to call herself Captain Marvel in the Marvel Universe. The second woman was Phyla-Vell, who was the fourth Captain Marvel after she was the second Quasar, before she was the first Martyr, before she saved herself the trouble of another codename by dying. Oh, those women! They never know who they are!

I’m being facetious, of course. These characters don’t choose their identities; they’re given them by writers and editors. If there’s a problem here, it’s not the women, but how they’re treated.

Get buried in this, get found by archeologists ten thousand years later, get presumed some kind of monarch or holy figure.

Somewhere, there are a lot of pissy, nekkid peacocks roaming the estate grounds….

That about sums up our student loan system

There’s a stark difference between the ways U.S. and UK students pay for college. In the UK, tuition costs are capped at a maximum of about $15,150, which doesn’t need to be paid up front or until after graduation. If funded by English or Welsh funding bodies, students don’t need to pay until they’re earning over $35,350 and the amount owed is tailored to their income. Someone earning around $50,500 would pay $1,353 yearly for their loans. If it’s not paid off in 30 years, it’s written off entirely. Meanwhile, tuition in Scotland is entirely free for students who study in the home country.

Okay. This is the last one. Then I’m done.
(IMAGE: Jon Stewart flipping you off, again and again and again.)

This is the first post I ever made that got over 500 notes. I think it’s high time that I bring it back.
Once again, we present: Jon Stewart, flipping you off, again and again and again.
