Charles Xavier helps students with eating disorders by helping them change their thoughts towards food, and in extreme cases, freezes them and makes them eat food to keep them alive.
I think this would cause more issues down the line, and is very immoral.
“From what I’ve seen, your funny little happy-go-lucky little life leaves devastation in its wake. Always moving on because you dare not look back. Playing with so many people’s lives, you might as well be a god. And you’re right, Doctor. You’re absolutely right. Sometimes… you let one go.”
#ahhh #you see this is my dark doctor #not eleven who is afraid of his capacity for darkness and the sucking; tidal loneliness within him that could swallow worlds #not ten whose darkness was all rage and mania—the cold-burning anger that condemned the family of blood or threatened to rip time #because he was Time Lord Victorious and it was his right #but nine #glorious nine #who is so comfortable with dealing out death that he thinks nothing of it; you cannot flinch from what you are #nine can smile and lightly talk about sparing one life; maybe two; because the dead of the time war slide off the scale and what is one more #world compared to that? #he is so steeped in horror it has become mundane for him (the first horror is the horror; the second is accepting it) #nine who emerged from the Time War the only colossus in a universe of ants #but rather than choosing to crush them beneath his heel because what is one more world? #he happens to be kind #because if you happen to be kind enough; if you choose not to step and snuff out their tiny lives enough times #maybe you can work your way back to being a good man #a fool’s errand #but a good fool #doctor who (notbecauseofvictories)
In short, don’t skip nine.
Even though Steve is his rock, it’s Clint who really helps bring Bucky back. He understands losing your mind to someone else, and all the fear and guilt and paranoia that comes with it. He knows how to help Bucky deal with it all. One thing he has Bucky do is make decisions and have opinions. little things like “red or blue?” “What would you name a cat?” “Grape or jelly?” To remind him that he is in control of his own mind.
“Everyone, this is my friend, James Buchanan Barnes. Most people call him Bucky though.”
“Hi. Natasha Romanoff.”
“Greetings. It as an honour to meet a friend of Captain Rogers. I am Thor.”
“Bruce Banner. Nice to meet you.”
“He was my dad.”
“I’m Clinton Barton. But most people call me Clint. Or Hawkeye. Whichever you want.”
Bucky cocked his head, unsure of what Clint meant. He simply smiled back.
Bucky was confused by the young archer. All of Steve’s friends were civil towards him, even Tony Stark, who Bucky thought would be cross with him for playing a part in his father’s death.
But Clint just seemed odd. He asked all these strange questions all the time.
“Do you prefer red or blue?”
“I was looking at a cat shelter the other day, just thinking. Prefer dogs myself. I could name a dog, but not a cat I don’t think. What would you name a cat?”
“Orange or apple juice? Tony wants me to order the shopping.”
“What are your favourite Oreos?”
“Grape or jelly?”
“James or Bucky?”
“So, do you prefer the 1940s or now?”
It was a while before Bucky cornered him.
It was the middle of the night and Bucky couldn’t sleep, so he headed down to the kitchen. Clint was in there as well.
“Fancy a midnight snack? I’ve got cookies.”
“Why do you do that?”
“Ask so many questions.”
“Because I know what it’s like.”
“What what’s like?”
“Steve told you about Loki and the Chitauri, yes?”
“Loki had me under some kind of mind control. I did things I regret, killed good men, friends. But it wasn’t my choice. It was Loki. It took me a while, but eventually, I realised that it wasn’t my fault. Nat talked me round. But I kept panicking that he was going to take control of my mind again and the way I got over that was by always having a choice. I kept made sure I always had two types of juice, two different places to sit, always a choice. And that helped. Because it meant I knew that I was in control of my mind.”
“So why do you ask me these questions?”
“Because you were brainwashed by HYDRA and they took away your choice. You feel like you were responsible for all the deaths, deaths of your friends as well, and you’re not. And you don’t believe that you’re not because you remember doing it. So, you need a choice of things. It’ll help you realise that those things weren’t your fault because you didn’t have a choice. HYDRA made you do them. And you worry that you’re going to revert back to the programming they did and try and kill Steve, forget all of this. That’s why I ask you questions. Because sometimes you might just need reminding that you’re James Buchanan Barnes instead of the Winter Soldier.”
“Bucky. Everyone always calls me Bucky.”
“Which do you prefer? James or Bucky?”
He thought for a minute.
“Well then Bucky. Chocolate or raisin?”
You’re much stronger than you think you are
I’m never gonna pass off the chance to reblog this because hell, sometimes knowing that some one fictional will be there in times like there really does help.
This makes me love Superman even more.
I prefer Michael Straczynski take on a similar scene
Superman: A being capable of moving the heavens and Earth itself, will always take the time to let you just how important you really are
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: AL EWING TALKS SAM WILSON AND “SEASON 2″ WITH ‘CAPTAIN AMERICA & THE MIGHTY AVENGERS’
Mighty Avengers is getting a new #1 and a new title this November. At the Avengers NOW panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, Marvel announced that the series will relaunch as Captain America & The Mighty Avengers — with former Falcon Sam Wilson taking point as the new Captain America. That means a second title series for Wilson’s Cap, and a second chance for readers to discover the book.
Al Ewing continues as writer, with former Captain America artist Luke Ross taking over as regular series artist. ComicsAlliance spoke to Ewing to find out why the book is relaunching, how he plans to handle Sam’s promotion, and what it means to write the only Avengers book with a predominantly non-white team.
SOMETHING TO BUY OTHER THAN REMENDER’S CAP! YES.
The curse was invented by Severus Snape during his time as a student at Hogwarts, in retaliation against his enemies. He recorded it in his N.E.W.T. Potions textbook and used it enough to make Remus Lupin recognise it as one of his signature…
19th July, 1976.
When I started, I just assumed I couldn’t be called Benedict Cumberbatch… but then, one day, I told someone in the business what I was really called and they said, “That’s great, that’s something you can use to stand out.”.
The Hulk ain’t never lied.
I can’t even express how much respect I have for Mark Ruffalo. The dude’s on the US terrorism watchlist for fuck’s sake.
Omg, it’s true.
He was put on the terrorist watch list for backing a documentary that shits all over capitalism and corporate greed and is pro environment?? Like this one guy set his fucking WATER on fire - that’s some Jesus stuff but nah son this flammable water is coming out of this guys tap and his family and neighbors drink it and the doccumentary is speaking against fracking but? AND MARK WAS PUT ON THE TERRORIST LIST FOR SUPPORTING THIS DOCUMENTARY I MEAN ‘MURICA tho.
I love Mark Ruffalo. I follow him here guys and he posts some fucking awesome shit. There’s a reason I love Hulk now that he’s played him! I never cared for the character but he just did it good and is just generally a fucking awesome human.
Things that make you a nazi:
- Agreeing with nazi ideologies
- Being a member of a nazi group
Things that do not make you a nazi:
- Being Grant Ward
Things Grant Ward has done:
- been a member of a nazi group since he was a teenager
Things Hydra is not:
- A nazi group
Things Grant Ward never did:
- Join Hydra because he agreed with any of their actual ideologies
Reasons Hydra is totally a Nazi group:
- Their origin story in the MCU is literally being the science and advanced research department of the Third Reich, aka the Nazi government, before Red Skull (loyal member of Hitler’s inner circle) got his face melted and not longer fit the physical ideals the Nazis based their eugenics off of, so he was carted off to run the science division until he became to resentful and decided he’d take over the world on his own
- They were part of Nazi Germany in the comics too, btw
- Red Skull—the leader of Hydra in Cap 1—is clearly portrayed as a Nazi officer
- Armin Zola is mentioned clearly in both Cap movies to be a Nazi scientist
- Their goal is in fact world domination, and for them, step 1 to achieving that goal was the murder of millions of people
- They were going to gun down anyone who they profiled or designated as posing a threat to them
- All that focus on creating superhumans in Agents of SHIELD remind you of anything?
- "Hail Hydra" is purposefully and transparently based on "Hail Hitler"
- The Hydra salute is purposefully and transparently based on the Nazi salute
- Your second point kind of admits you think Hydra’s ideologies make them a Nazi group if you have to specify Grant Ward doesn’t agree with them to make your argument that he’s not a Nazi
- There’s probably plenty more reasons
Reasons it doesn’t matter if Grant Ward agreed with Hydra’s ideologies:
- He knew what their ideologies were and joined anyway
- He personally murder (at least) dozens of people in service of Hydra
- He helped Hydra take over SHIELD, knowing full well that Hydra planned to kill millions of people around the world in just one day, and more later, to ensure their dominance
- Sorry but no personal loyalty or traumatic backstory undoes the fact that he was loyally willing to help his organization murder millions of people
- I’m still gonna say being a member of a Nazi group makes you a Nazi
fucking thank you - and while we’re at it, can people still stop saying “hail hydra” like some kind of joke?
Also important to note that Ward only started feeling dubious about his choices because it meant that Skye wasn’t into him anymore. Not because he thought Hydra/Garrett’s actions were morally reprehensible.
And yeah, Hydra’s a bunch of Nazis. Schmidt broke away from the Third Reich because he felt that Hitler wasn’t effective enough at genocide and world domination. Hydra became its own organization because Nazis weren’t Nazi enough for them.
As excited as I am about the new Captain America being announced, I doubt anyone is as fucking excited as Anthony Mackie potentially is right now. I seriously fucking hope that there is a Captain America movie a few years down the road where we get to see The Falcon become the new Cap.
