Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

While Johansson’s first Marvel appearance in Iron Man 2 may have relied somewhat upon sex appeal, this was quickly nixed in favor of characterizing her as the most cerebral Avenger. Her most important scenes in The Avengers relied upon her intelligence and skills as a spy, to the extent that she even managed to outwit Loki, the God of Lies. At the end of the movie, she’s the one who closes the portal that let all the aliens into New York. Then in Winter Soldier she’s given second billing to Captain America, a meaty role that showcases a wide-ranging skillset that stretches far beyond just “kicking ass.” At no point during any of these movies does she seduce anyone, by the way.

Sadly, there’s very little sign of this character in the most easily accessible reviews of both The Avengers and Winter Soldier. Judging by the Guardian, WSJ, or New Yorker, Black Widow is more like a blow-up doll with a black belt. By their logic, if she’s wearing a tight outfit, then she must be a sexy ass-kicker, meaning that she must be the token female character, and therefore is little more than eye candy.

With that thought process in mind, it must make perfect sense to relegate Black Widow to a single sniggering comment about her catsuit, because obviously Scarlett Johansson is just there for decoration. And if you’ve read in the New York Times that Black Widow is a token female character, then chances are you’ll have internalized that opinion before you even buy a ticket. The feedback loop of misogynist preconceptions continues on, and in the end, we all lose out.

(From Captain America #270 - June 1982)

This is Captain America meeting up with an old friend, Arnie Roth. Though the word “gay” is never used (incredibly awful censorship), it’s pretty obvious Michael is his partner (he stumbles to say they are “rooming” and that they are “friends”, but later canon has firmly established they are in a relationship).

Michael is abducted by the Red Skull, and at the end, the Red Skull mind controls Arnie, forcing him to say that he is a freak and doesn’t know anything about real love.

Cap breaks him out of this, and says “You are not a freak! You are as good and decent a man as I’ve ever known! They can’t corrupt your love for Michael with their lies… They’re the disease!”

I keep having to tell people: Captain America is the kind of patriotic I can SO get behind. You tell’em, Cap!

And this is why when people prompt shit with “homophobic” Steve Rogers on kink memes, I want to punch them in the face.

Put this on parallel with Chris Evans openly saying he’s 100% pro LGBTQ rights, and it’s even more awesome. Both comic!Steve and his actor are great in this sense.

And damn, people really do that in the kinkmemes? D: I’m not even in the Avengers fandom, and yet I still think it’s Le Shitty.

Please note that this is way back in 1982 as well. It’s funny because people think that because Captain America is Captain America he’s this jingoistic and stereotypical patriot, but that could not be further from the truth. Cap is shown to be VERY, VERY socially progressive on many, many occasions and this has been the case since at least the 70s.

But yeah the homophobic Steve prompts? Can gtfo.

Cap isn’t just socially progressive, his character transcends political viewpoints. Cap is the moral bedrock of the Marvel Universe. He is basically Marvel’s version of Superman: kind, brave, selfless, always knowing how to use power to lift up the powerless. In one DC/Marvel crossover from way back, Superman asked Cap to lead the Justice League. That’s why he leads the Avengers. That’s why men/gods as powerful as Thor and the Hulk will listen to him.
