You could argue comic books have little importance in the grander scheme of things. But comic books make a big statement in a small way. We won’t have blockbuster movies about a Muslim superhero until we can all be excited about a comic book portraying one. When Marvel created Khan, it took a shot at breaking the typical paradigm of superheroes. While it’s a small gesture when measured up to the entire comic book world, it’s another step in the movement for equality in entertainment.
For the larger part of the decade, there was a potent cloud of racism and hatred towards Muslim people. Today, the fact we can portray young Muslim girls as superheroes is a beacon of hope for what is to come. Sure, a lot of people will say “it’s just a comic book.” But I’d like to think somewhere out there, it’s making a difference in a young Muslim girl’s life. And even if the message gets lost and Khan’s character doesn’t sell well, at least a young girl could have her own superhero to look up to.

For all of you cosplayers especially..
Some people get so caught up in looking perfect for this photo, or doing a better job than this person, that you forget that there are people out there, of all ages, who have the imagination to believe.  Like that story about the lost kid at comic con, or the kid being bullied at the mall and save by Batman, if you want to dress up as a hero..have the attitude of one as well.
That in itself will also help how good your costume looks.  It’s the little things man…

;______________;
Oh God, the small children that made me feel like a real Princess. A real Princess, especially when I was going through a lot of emotional shit… This right here, man. 
To every little boy and girl who truly believed in me, thank you. 

When I wore my Belle costume at Wondercon this year, I had a couple of little ones come up and ask for pictures with me, and a couple of parents who wanted pictures to show their kids later.  asdlfkjfsff SO HAPPY. AND SO ADORBS.

Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: Four-year-old comic book fan Anthony Smith is deaf in his right ear and has hearing damage in his left. He also refused to wear his hearing aid (which he calls “Blue Ear” because it is blue), because “superheroes don’t wear hearing aids.” So in a long-shot attempt to help her son, Anthony’s mom emailed Marvel for ideas.
“She didn’t know a specific person to write to here at Marvel, and even figured it might get caught in our spam filters, but she sent it in anyway, because that’s the kind of great parent Christina is,” said Marvel editor Bill Rosemann. “And it was her inspiring effort to help her son that touched so many of us here. As a fellow parent of a toddler, I can understand where she’s coming from, so I forwarded the email around the rest of Editorial, asking what we could do to help, and like when Cap yells, ‘Avengers Assemble,’ the gang leapt into action.”
Not only did Anthony receive an image of the superhero Hawkeye, who lost 80 percent of his hearing back in the ’80s and wore hearing aids — Anthony also received a drawing, by Nelson Ribeiro in Collected Editions, of a brand-new superhero: “Blue Ear.”
Now, with his hearing aid back in, Anthony is able to “fight battles and help people.” His preschool, for hearing-impaired kids, recently hosted a superhero week to inspire the students to overcome their limitations.
DON’T miss the video. It’s the best thing you’ll see all day.

A gay marriage, a disabled superhero, AND the Avengers all in the same month? Marvel must have some real-life superheroes on the payroll.

Now see, this is why Marvel is the best.  They may not be perfect, they may make their mistakes, they may have plenty of room for improvement when it comes to this sort of thing.  But they give a shit.  They actually try to be good about this sort of thing, and do better than before.

Female superhero Chinese Redbud Woman appears in Beijing

This May, a female “superhero” appeared in Hong Kong, wearing low-cut black tights and blue mask, called herself “Zijing Woman” (紫荆侠) or “Chinese Redbud Woman”. She handed out food and cash to some Hong Kong residents. The mysterious masked female vigilante received great attention in Hong Kong.

However, on December 24, a “female superhero” also appeared in Beijing, wearing exactly the same outfit as the “Chinese Redbud Woman” of Hong Kong.
