This was originally a blog dedicated to the astonishingly high number of times that Professor Charles Xavier has played the role of the Damsel in Distress. It's become a general Charles Xavier apprection blog (okay, still lots of peril present).

SO, AUGUST IS (maybe not officially yet) MARVELOUS MARVEL LADIES MONTH
What does that mean? Well, my friend Fel noticed that someone was doing an appreciation week for Janet van Dyne, and we thought that we should do more appreciation for other under-appreciated female characters, and from there the idea came that we’d dedicate a whole month to these women! And I know that the picture I chose is kind of silly because the front ladies are pretty well known but there wasn’t a lot of variety in the women drawn for “women of marvel” pictures. 
Which characters are you talking about? I have a list here that is currently still growing because we literally just started thinking about this today; so these are not all of the characters we were thinking of honoring, but it’s a start!
What would happen? We were thinking that on each day of the month we’d have one to three/four (depending on how long the list gets) ladies that the day would be dedicated to, and during that day whoever wanted to participate could create photosets or maybe someone could make a masterpost or people could just post a lot of pictures and panels about the characters in general! I’m also thinking (and I’m going to ask Def for some help on this, since she was the mastermind behind the marvel tumblrcon) of asking people for introductory posts on characters, if they want, which would give a basic rundown of the character’s history personality and powers, along with where you could find said character. I’m not sure about that yet but once I figure it all out, if you’re interested in writing up a post for a character just shoot me an ask!
But what about Sif/Carol/Emma/Storm? I was thinking that the majority of the month would be dedicated to those characters who really aren’t talked about much (if at all), and then maybe the last day/couple of days would be a BIG NAME LADIES type of deal, so then we could appreciate our favorites who are also extremely popular too! Because really, can you ever get enough Marvel ladies?
Like I said, this is something we came up with literally an hour ago, so it’s still a big hectic tangled mess of ideas and stuff. But we’re going to be working on organizing things and getting more people involved so stay tuned!

Trigger warnings

Hmm. There was recently a thing on my dash where someone was asked to tag certain potentially triggery things, and it got me thinking. On this blog, I try to remember to tag for gifs, violence, and gore. I don’t always succeed- just now had to go back and add a gif tag to a recent post.

If I forget to tag anything, or if there are any other trigger warnings you want me to tag for, anything at all, I want you to know that you can ask and I will comply.

Have a good day. :)

Wolverine Season One

His relationship with Charles is one of the few things I really like about Wolverine. Actually, I usually only like Wolverine in stories where his relationships with other people are explored- Wolverine the father/older brother figure (beginning with Kitty; excluding certain painful story lines that may or may not have involved Daken who I still miss), Wolverine the friend (notably Kurt), Wolverine the grumpy but dependable colleague (this used to be a thing for him and Scott, for example)…. I hardly ever read stories just for Wolverine himself.

gasp My X-Men comics aknowledging the possibility that there is not only one way of doign things that cna be right but instead different ways for different people? … and then Piotr wastes it by basically blaming himself -_-
But Amelia? Awesome.

/checks Amelia Voght tag
/finds this
Everything about Amelia makes me love her more.
And she is the perfect person to be saying this, too, seeing as she’s the one person who’s worked with both sides—seen both points of view—been very close to both leaders—and always made her own choice. She left Charles when she’d had enough of him, and she’s argued with Magneto and occasionally directly disobeyed his orders when she didn’t think she could persuade him to change his mind but still felt strongly that he was wrong.
I was really excited when Mike Carey brought her back, but then she just disappeared. Admittedly, that IS her power. Have all the writers just forgotten about her?
