  1. Wakes up
  2. Drinks coffee from her Ct’hthullu mug
  3. Puts on her Sauron helmet
  4. Opens her computer
  5. Goes on Twitter
  6. Trolls on twitter
  7. Makes new enemies (Including Microsoft Vampires 80’s band and the English)
  8. Writes down enemy names on her Death Note*
  9. Leaves Twitter
  10. Goes on…

This is very offensive to me, because I don’t drink coffee. 

Otherwise, pretty fair! 

This is offensive to me: YOU DON’T DRINK COFFEE????

WHAT…?

HOW…?

I —

…I don’t understand those words in that order. 

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA,

Kelly Sue 

COFFEE IS TERRIBLE IT SMELLS LIKE ROASTED FARTS AND TASTED LIKE BURNT DIRT.

Sorry, it had to be said.

Wait… wait. Gail, you don’t like coffee?!

Kelly Sue, you just became my new favorite. How can I exchange my Batgirl Decoder Ring for a Carol Corps Badge?

Listen. I have complicated feelings about the Wonder Woman costume. I have complicated feelings about the costume because I have complicated feelings about the Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice movies. Yeah, I know I’m being a bit of the never-pleased fanboy here. But hear me out.
DC Entertainment has taken this line that a superhero’s work is grueling, it requires nothing but sacrifice, and at the end of the day, the people you protect are angry and frightened of your power. There is nothing super about being a DC superhero; not in the comics and not in the movies.
And when it was 1987 and comics like Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns were new, that was an unexplored and compelling story. It still can be a compelling story, but not when you just throw more shade and dirt and grit at it. Just because something is dark and gritty doesn’t make it serious. And just because something is brash and bold, doesn’t make it fluff.
For example, The Dark Knight and Iron Man came out the same summer. I saw both movies more than once in the theater and bought both blurays when they were released. I’ve watched Iron Man at least a half dozen times and The Dark Knight is still in it’s plastic wrapping.
It comes down to this. Tony Stark’s story in that movie is more compelling to be than Batman’s. While not even remotely in the vicinity of perfect, Tony recognizes that the world he’s helped create is not a good one and he takes action to change that. He stops manufacturing weapons and he starts protecting people from the weapons that are still out there. Yes things are tied up in a neat bow at the end, but it’s a movie that says you can make a difference in the world. 
The Dark Knight is about Harvey Dent and how you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. Everyone in that world is cannon fodder or a bad guy waiting to happen. And throughout, Batman is treated like a freak in mask. In this world, there’s something wrong with you if you want to even try to make a difference because you can’t. 
Both movies send the message that you have to be a rich white man to be a superhero. Which is a huge fucking problem with superhero movies, as well as regular movies and the world in general. It’s an issue that deserves a much more in-depth and intelligent conversation than this particular rant.
Also I’m making this about Marvel versus DC when this should be about Wonder Woman. Given what DC Entertainment movies look like at a fundamental level, I’m not really interested in whatever Wonder Woman story (or non-story) they want to tell.
Back to the costume. Yeah the colors are dark and muted, but it’s got this bad-ass Xena thing going on, and Gal Gadot looks like she can seriously fuck. shit. up. It’s fierce and bad-ass and I kinda dig it. 
But what has me more upset than the lack of bottoms and thigh-high high-heeled boots is the blatant absence of the Lasso of Truth. 
THERE’S NO LASSO.
NO. FUCKING. LASSO.
She’s got a warrior’s sword, which is awesome and fitting for an Amazon. But Wonder Woman as we know her has a Lasso of Truth (and an Invisible Jet and a Purple Healing Ray). Yes, these are “silly magical items,” but the Lasso is integral to Diana as a character. Without them she’s like Captain America without the Shield or the Doctor without his Sonic Screwdriver. Wonder Woman is not just about the warrior; she’s a protector of the innocent, an advocate for those who’ve been make weak. And the Lasso of Truth is a huge symbol of that. It’s a defensive weapon. It keeps things from breaking.
So yeah. Maybe I was never going to be happy with this costume. But I think I have decent reasons not to be.

SO apparently I totally missed the Lasso hiding in the shadows. Which I feel like  perfectly sums up why I don’t really dig DC superhero movies. 


Also, and I know this discussion has been made to death over and over and over again, but what’s with needing Diana in heeled boots? No one is staring at the shape of her calves in thigh-high boots, and having your feet in that position while running/jumping/saving the day is just asking for all sorts of injuries that would prevent you from superheroing, I don’t care how super strong you are.
STOP PUTTING DIANA IN HEELED BOOTS, FOR THE LOVE OF THE GODS.
