How Looper Should Have Ended


James Gunn Apologises for the Superhero Comments

A couple of years ago I wrote a blog that was meant to be satirical and funny. In rereading it over the past day I don't think it's funny. The attempted humor in the blog does not represent my actual feelings. However, I can see where statements were poorly worded and offensive to many. I'm sorry and regret making them at all. People who are familiar with me as evidenced by my Facebook page and other mediums know that I'm an outspoken proponent for the rights of the gay and lesbian community, women and anyone who feels disenfranchised, and it kills me that some other outsider like myself, despite his or her gender or sexuality, might feel hurt or attacked by something I said. We're all in the same camp, and I want to do my best to make this world a better place for all of us. I'm learning all the time. I promise to be more careful with my words in the future. And I will do my best to be funnier as well. Much love to all - James Gunn

Probably gonna be some guys that are going to say that he shouldn't have apologised... but there are terrible people all over the internet so, eh.

CT: James Gunn

Trigger warning for sexism, slut shaming and homophobic comments. Not by me, by the guy I'm criticising.

Flogging A Dead Horse: The Everchanging Status of Cass and Steph

It's something of an established fact that the treatment of Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown in recent years in DC has... been somewhat inconsistant. And complaining about it really at this point has become not so much flogging a dead horse, as beating it into a finer and finer paste.

The infuriating thing about the situation for a fan though, is how despite there being somewhat legitimate reasons for not including them, for a given value of "legitimate", the measures taken to ensure they don't appear have gone from being irritating to outright bizarre.

Cringeworthy Comicbook Moments: Superman, Indian Chief!

Today in Cringeworthy Comicbook Moments, I bring you a story from the Silver Age, where Superman uses timetravel to screw with a Native American who claims to have legal ownership of the land Metropolis is built on.

Triggerwarning for old timey racism.
