Anthony Mackie being the first black superhero (and making Bill O’Reilly uncomfortable) on Jimmy Fallon (x)

I am so happy that Anthony Mackie is a person that exists.

For anyone who’s going: “But what about Storm/Hancock/Frozone/War Machine etc etc?”: they’re referring to the fact that the character Falcon was the first African-American superhero* created (debuted in Captain America #177 in 1969). If you’ve watched the clip, you’ll notice that Mackie corrects Jimmy Fallon when he says first black superhero. This is because the first black superhero was Black Panther - debuted in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966 - whom lives in the fictive African country Wakanda, and is thus not a citizen of the USA.

(* = the word “superhero” is usually not used for hero characters that pre-date Superman, nor actually very often used outside the mainstream comic book companies aka DC Comics and Marvel Comics. This is why such characters as The Phantom, created in 1936 aka 2 years before Superman, and whom wears spandex and a mask and punches evil guys in the face, is not generally dubbed a super hero. Anyway, the point of this asterisk is that I have no idea how many fictional, non-“super” hero characters there were of African decent before 1966)

He’s so fucking stoked, I can’t even deal with it. And throw some open, careless contempt for Bill O’Reilly into the bargain!

Seeing Anthony Mackie do anything is like watching a beam of sunshine fall down on a herd of puppies playing in a beautiful field of wildflowers. Cereal.

Listen carefully to what Mary says: “people like Magnussen should be killed, that’s why there are people like me”.  She’s the type of person who kills people like Magnussen.  And what type of person is Magnussen?  According to Sherlock he is ‘the Napoleon of blackmail' who runs the Western world from Appledore, using the “greatest respository of sensitive and dangerous information anywhere in the world”.  And as long as Magnussen has that information “the personal freedom of anyone you have ever met is a fantasy”.  He’s not a very nice person, in fact, he’s a pretty nasty guy who turns Sherlock’s stomach.  When Magnussen flicks John’s face at Appledore he tells him “I know who Mary hurt and killed.  I know where to find people who hate her.  I know where they live.  I know their phone numbers.  I could phone them right now and tear your whole life down.”  He could set these people on Mary, and they obviously wouldn’t call the authorities to have her arrested and properly tried in a court of law.  They would hunt her down and kill her.  Probably not very nicely, because they are not-very-nice people.  So Mary may be right, people like Magnussen should be killed; that’s why there are people like her.

Who else has killed someone?

image

and then justified it as the killing of a not-very-nice person who deserved to die?

image

Remember that when John shot the cabbie Sherlock was voluntarily taking the pill - he wasn’t being coerced.  This means that John cannot avail himself of the “defense of other” defense to murder (akin to self-defense except that the homicide is committed to defend the life of another person, not yourself).  Sherlock confirms this when he tells John that he wasn’t really going to take the pill (true, John doesn’t believe this, but he does acknowledge that Sherlock was voluntarily risking his life to prove he was clever, because that’s how he gets his ‘kicks’).  John actually committed murder that night and then threw the murder weapon in the Thames.  Nevertheless, we love it when they giggle at the crime scene and then go off to dinner together. 

Also remember that after John shoots the cabbie Sherlock tortures him to force him to reveal Moriarty’s name telling him “you’re dying, but there’s still time to hurt you”. image

Finally, remember who actually does kill Magnussen: image

So don’t be too judgmental of Mary.  Both John and Sherlock have committed murder to save each other.  I don’t hear anybody criticizing them for doing this - in fact they are praised for doing so.  So why the double-standard when it comes to Mary?  Is it because we don’t know her back-story?  Sherlock has deduced that Mary was an intelligence agent, but he does not know what country she was serving. By her blonde hair I suppose we are to assume she is Russian, but that could be a red herring.  Sherlock trusts her, maybe, because, like him, she is on the ‘side of the angels’, even if she isn’t one herself. 

The fandom shouldn’t complain when John Watson’s wife turns out to be an assassin, because if the fandom likes Sherlock Holmes, and the fandom likes John Watson, then it is, indeed, what the fandom likes.

Additionally keep in mind that every time Sherlock resorts to violence it means he was intellectually beaten. It’s a sign of “weakness”, a pure emotional response. That’s why the “I’m not a hero, I’m a high functioning sociopath” has such a deeper resonance in this scenario, because it means exactly the opposite, that he care so much at this point he’s slowly  becoming the “great man” Lestrade saw in him back in ASiP.

Also I do believe that when John shot the cabbie he wasn’t thinking it through. He maybe hoped that he might get away with it, but at the time his prioritiy was just to save the life.

When Sherlock shoots Magnussen on the other hand he probably took into account every possibible outcome. And every scenario is bad for him, going to jail would strip him simutaniously from his job and friends and, as we’ve seen in TEH, two years away put him very close of losing his mind.

So even against all logic he shoots Magnussen in front of all those witness, fully aware of what it means to him. Pre-ASiP Sherlock would never do this, it’s stupid.

It’s so stupid and even so they would all do it, Mary, John and Sherlock. They would kill to keep who they love safe, they’ve all been there and that’s the decision they made.

That’s why the “You choose her” line doesn’t just mean something as cheap as “You chose her over me” but instead “She’s just like me, you chose her just like you chose me. The three of us are the same”

The same kind of crazy, the same kind of hero, they’re all addicted to a certain lifestyle

I don’t understand, why did you reblog a picture of a normal dude hanging out on the street

I hate how tumblr does this. Why do people think it’s okay to take pictures of random guys just because they’re “attractive” or whatever? That’s fucked up, and I guarantee if this were a woman instead of a man there would be outrage.
And I know sexism isn’t equal in that sense, but people have a right to privacy. Stop being so damn creepy, y’all.

I thought it was meant to be a shot of the car.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the rumor mill is abuzz. We’ve had a celebrity sighting in our little burgh! Old Woman Josie and one of her angel friends reportedly saw Rita Hayworth getting gas at the Fuel ‘N Go over by the bowling alley. Rita Hayworth, ladies and gentlemen! Right here in Night Vale. Can you believe it? Old Woman Josie said Rita was looking a bit older, moderately obese, and considerably more Hispanic, but the angel assured her it was indeed Rita. He is an angel after all—he would know, right? Wow! Rita Hayworth. Right here in Night Vale. Just imagine."

Improvised Cecil cosplay, because my time on this planet is limited, and I choose how I waste it. This worked surprisingly well, considering I just grabbed random clothing from my closet. Wish I knew where my glasses went…

I doubt Cecil would be violent, but I can imagine he’d be willing to indulge his dark (darker?) side to fend off the StrexCorp® invasion of Night Vale.

(Purple machete is not related to my headcanon, but I can’t resist holding it.)

Oh no, he’s cute.
