Element Woman! From the first time I saw her in Flashpoint, I knew I wanted to draw her at some point. I’m VERY happy with how she turned out here!

Pretty art. Very pretty art.

There is this website called Thrift Books and I just got $66.90 worth of books for $19.93 (five books). Shipping was free. You’re welcome.

Oh wow.

Now that Falcon’s going to be Captain America will he be leading the Mighty Avengers? Hmmm…

Spectrum: Awww, he changed his codename. Congrats, but eh, been there, done that. I’m still field leader.

Luke: And I’m still Leader leader.

Spectrum: Well, technically.

Smasher by Dangerous-Beauty778

One of the more fun newer Avengers I think along with Captain Universe.  Too bad they changed her last name to Kane now. She was originally intended to be Dan Dare’s grand daughter apparently or at least sort of alluded as such.

How Turbans Helped Some Blacks Go Incognito In The Jim Crow Era

nprchives:

Here’s some excellent archival research by NPR’s Code Switch team (with help from NPR librarian Katie Daugert on blacks passing as East Indian or using “exotica” to navigate the Jim Crow South. This perspective complicates the conversations trending on the Internet about cultural appropriation. 

"I was Jim Crowed here, Jim Crowed there, Jim Crowed all over the place. And I didn’t like being Jim Crowed." —- Jesse Routté, who pulled off what historian Paul Kramer calls the “turban trick.”

At the time, ideas of race in America were quite literally black and white. But a few meters of cloth changed the way some people of color were treated.

Huh. Now that’s really interesting.

Decided I’ll be raising my 2* Storm to her max level instead of leveling up my team evenly. Probably best that way. And after that probably my 2* Magneto.

Two things I’ve wondered about especially as they can be related are Cythonna and DC One Million.

Cythonna was Krypton’s Demon/Devil God of Ice and Death and was truly unkillable by most means. She backhands Superman and he compares it to the outright hits of a Pre-Crisis Kryptonian so she’s someone at least as powerful as Superboy-Prime, probably more so under most conditions.

At the end of her story she was trapped in the sun as it weakened her cold powers enough to not allow her to escape on her own.

In DC One Million we find out our Superman aka the Prime Superman (no relation to Superboy-Prime) has spent millennia growing stronger by staying in the sun and grants his descendants powers so that they can protect the universe etc…

So…I wonder…though it wasn’t brought up in DC One Million…is Cythonna still there?

I can only assume that after Millennia she’s the voice that Superman constantly has to deal with. A literal devil on his shoulder. He’s too powerful to attack at this point but she whispers temptations to release her incessantly and always knows how to chill even him, essentially a god as well, to his core.

And after DC One Million Superman laughs. What can she possibly tempt him with at this point? Krypton is back, his birth parents alive, Lois and likely all his friends and family alive again etc… But she looks ever smug. She even chuckles. She’s saw this coming for a long time. At his happiest moment she’s held a secret for so long…

"Ah Kal-El. So jovial. You’ve won a great victory. You bring great life to the universe. A blinding light that would make even Rao jealous. You can see so much and yet you’re still so blind. We weren’t alone all these millennia in the sun, yet your eyes cannot even gaze at her. She who died to protect you. Your soul screams and knows her but you cannot sense her. Her name…is Kara."
