Tom DeFalco built Mayday Parker and her family up over the course of eight years of comic books. Eight years!

Slott destroyed it all over the course of six pages. Six pages!

Well done Slott! You are sure going to go down in (superhero) comic book history now alright, just like you wanted…

Men who feel outcast by “Alpha Male” culture often end up replicating the same limiting, awful hierarchy in new places. # GamerGate.

These men gravitate towards subcultures after being left cold by the dominant macho one, yet rather than reject hyper-masculinity, they mirror it. 

Yet it’s actually the same hatred of women - fear of the ‘feminine’ - at the root o the macho culture that rejected them too. # GamerGate

If you’re genuinely looking for spaces where you can escape the dominant, oppressive, expectations of masculinity - look into feminism.]

Wish I would’ve gotten to this sooner since it’s late to be posting, but I really love this particular message and the discussion around “being a man” and how it relates to the treatment of women as well as gay men (or anyone else perceived as “less” / equivocated with being undesirably weak)

While not as in your face as gaming currently is, same can be said for men currently in positions of power in comics.

Honestly if you’re a Mayday Parker fan don’t buy tomorrow’s ASM #8

Since someone posted the pages, might as well reblog.

And yes to everything said here. Glad I’m not the only one who noticed the godawful dialogue.

Also? Unlike Slott, the real Mayday knows the difference between first person and second person narration.

New Orleans - In the hurricane Katrina-ravaged Lower Ninth Ward, there’s now a community development whose buildings use 75% less energy than typical structures. The Holy Cross Project incorporates rain harvesting, solar and geothermal power, and home-monitoring systems that show a resident’s real-time energy consumption
