Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I was totally down with the change over already, but not knowing the backstory, this just convinced me so hard that Captain America needs to be a minority right now. 
Before, Marvel said, “This is what you want? Well fuck you, he isn’t going to help you.” 
Now Marvel is saying, “This is who you’re throwing under the bus? Who you’re tossing into prison like he doesn’t mean anything? Who you demonize regularly? Well fuck you, he’s going to save you anyway.”
And as far as the Thor thing, that whole, “If he be worthy part,” yeah, they’re giving the finger to the patriarchy right there saying, “Hey, women are worthy too.”
If these two things were spaced out, I might believe that they were just marketing ploy, but they come so close together at a time where this message is necessary, I can’t help but think that there are people at Marvel who get it and are going with it. 
I mean, if they were willing to fight Hitler during WWII, why not be willing to fight some of the evils of today? 



This isn’t the first time Marvel has done this either. 
Here’s a more concise piece about the previous black C.A. on the Marvel wiki.

Seriously though Isaiah Bradley is amazing and you should all go read those links.

Isaiah Bradley is SUPER IMPORTANT and AWESOME. (plus his grandson is Patriot of the Young Avengers and also really cool and important!)

As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion

THIS IS FUCKING TERRIFYING

No thank you.

The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling

This is way cooler to look at than it should be

Science side of Tumblr would like to add:
Heat is generally transmitted in 3 forms: conduction, convection, radiation.
The fact that the telephone poles and wires are boiling away well before the shockwave hits them indicates that the heat from the explosion has not reached them by convection (much slower than the speed of sound) or by conduction (at best, comparable to the speed of sound), but purely by radiation. In other words: the explosion is bright enough to boil everything.



In honour of finding my comment in a popular repost i’ll add that all of the liquid in this picture is turning to vapour. It’s likely that some solids have near-instantaneously changed from liquid to gas as well.A-bombs ain’t nothin’ to mess with

Guy on train:
I'd fuck you if you didn't have so many tattoos.
Me:
*turns up music*
Guy:
I said I'd fuck you if you didn't have so many tattoos!
Me:
*takes off headphones* Leave. Me. Alone.
Guy:
Why the fuck do you have so many tattoos?
Me:
Guy:
Are you fucking deaf as well as a piece of trash?
Lady by door:
Hey. Leave her alone.
Guy:
Are you her trash girlfriend? Fucking dykes, all tattooed like fucking men. Disgusting waste of pussy.
Lady:
*moves forward, carefully moves jacket so only I can see the badge on her belt* Are you okay?
Me:
Fine. Just wish he'd go away.
Lady cop:
I can make that happen.
Guy:
Oh, yeah, bitch? Who the fuck are you? I'll kill you!
Lady cop:
And that's what I was waiting for. *grabs guy, holds him against the door* Harassing women on the train was enough, but you just threatened a cop. You're battin' a thousand tonight.
Entire train:
*applauds*
