Please keep crossposting here - I’m crap at…

I probably will, but there won’t be any discussion on the blog whatsoever. Asks and comments are disabled, and I won’t be interacting with anyone who starts a dialogue.

I just find the environment here incredibly toxic, and I’ve decided to begin the process of leaving tumblr. It’s not something you can just drop, as I’ve made a lot of friends here, but there is a possibility that eventually my tumblr presence will disappear completely.

This is what happens when you view a story on the EW website that’s a month old. Hilariously coincidental advertising clash? Check.

HBO is known for taking risks with its programming, but today’s news could set a new benchmark for cable television.
With seven months still to go until the release of the highly anticipated Zero Sum Game, the network has agreed to go ahead with a World War Two drama Howling Commandos - a series loosely based on the exploits of Captain America and his group of special ops soldiers - after the overwhelming fan interest for the first trailer of the David Fincher helmed film, crashed the TimeWarner Website.
Rumors of the project have been swirling since March, when Jensen Ackles (who plays the star spangled man in the film) hinted at the possible cancellation of long running WB show Supernatural. While the show has been renewed for a tenth season, that hasn’t stopped the limited run Commandos from being shoehorned into his schedule.
When asked about the possibility of other Game stars appearing in the miniseries, HBO representatives confirmed that Commandos will be set firmly in the mid-century. A diverse cast has been assembled to play Cap’s team, with Boris Kodjoe, Eva Green, and Sung Kang all attached to the project.
As for Zero Sum Game, the second trailer is rumored to be close to completion, and producers seem determined to generate as much interest in the political thriller before its November premiere. With Michael Bay’s action blockbuster The Tower being released within days of Game, we’re sure the debate over which is better will keep these films trending in the coming months, and for long after their initial release. For more information on Zero Sum Game, and The Tower you can get all the latest news here.

Combat Aircraft Monthly (European Edition), and Newsweek (third to last issue) - both featuring Lieutenant Colonel James Rhodes.

I thought it was about time we gave Rhodey some love over here at MA. I always imagined the US Military wanting to show off their favourite new toy as much as possible.

#this was SERIOUSLY overdue #I wanna gripe but I won’t #I’ll just celebrate the Rhodey love 

Hi, sorry for reblogging your tags, but I do just want to say that I actually initially posted this nearly a year ago. I hope you get the chance to have a look at some of the other MediAvengers posts featuring Rhodey that I’ve done - there are another two or three :)

A response to those incensed by my latest post

Recently, I created an Economist cover for this blog, which featured a prominent image of the top of Captain America’s head, with the HYDRA emblem in place of the ‘A’.

There has been a bit of backlash about this, mostly in regards to the insinuation that Steve Rogers could be, or is HYDRA. This is not what I am saying with this image. In fact, those who have inferred this concept, couldn’t be further from the truth.

How many times have you seen magazines, whether they be lowbrow tabloids, or respected journals, feature a shocking image on the cover to sell issues? How many times have you seen radical hyperbole used to convey a message of fear? How many times have you seen journalists use shock tactics, or speculation to create a name for themselves?

What we see in the MCU, is what is ‘really’ happening. What would those who live in it see? They would see an intelligence agency falling on its own sword. They would see the name of a man, once hailed as a patriot, being sullied by the enemy in his own ranks. How would the media respond to those touted as superheroes, working for an agency that turned out to be rotten all along.

This is the message behind MediAvengers. We see the ‘real’ people in this universe, but those who would be commenting on the events wouldn’t see what’s going on behind closed doors.

Consider this: If you were a bystander in the universe where our heroes exist, would you immediately believe that Captain America could only possibly be good, or would you consider the idea that he may have known who he was working for all along?

To be honest, I think some people just don’t get what it is you’re doing with this blog, which is a bit sad. I would have thought it was obvious, but apparently not.

This is why I wrote The post - to help people understand. Some of the messages I got… wooooah.
