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

Things that make HYDRA not a Nazi organization:

  • really strongly believing it enough, apparently it’s like bringing fairies back to life by clapping

Reasons Grant Ward should be seen as not a Nazi even though he murdered people (PEOPLE IS PLURAL) and endangered countless others for an ideology he didn’t even really care about:

  • But he didn’t do it in a NAZI way!
  • Their deaths don’t mean the same thing if he wasn’t a true believer!
  • Look at how sad he was when the puppy got killed!

This morning I’m thinking about manpain. Specifically, superhero angst.

Specifically Batman. And Captain America.

As a digression, I feel like what distinguishes “manpain” from just regular pain is not so much the man but the shooting directions. Like, you know it’s manpain when the camera goes into tight closeup on their clenched jaw, or when they are shot backlit in an alley with smoke swirling around their feet. Or with a big fire blazing behind them. Or if they are trudging through a crowded cityscape that’s all black and white and they are the only ones in color.

Case in point: this is Batman. His parents are dead. It’s very sad. He has a lot of manpain.

image

Because of all his pain, Batman is not fully able to trust anyone. He pushes everyone away. Sometimes he lashes out against those closest to him.

This is Batman at Christmas time.

image

Batman is not ever going to go to therapy and deal with his trust issues, or talk about whether he might have something like depression and whether it might respond to medication, even though he could definitely afford it because he is a billionaire. He’s not going to do these things because of editorial decree.

"They put on a cape and cowl for a reason," says DC co-publisher Dan Didio. "They’re committed to defending others — at the sacrifice of all their own personal instincts. That’s something we reinforce. If you look at every one of the characters in the Batman family, their personal lives kind of suck.”

image

Okay. This is Captain America. His parents are dead too. Actually, almost everybody he ever knew is dead, because he got frozen for seventy years.

image

(By the way if you do a Google image search for “Captain America Punching Bag,” Google will show you some stuff and will also, right at the top, helpfully prompt you with a couple other search terms that you’re probably interested in: “Chris Evans” and “Butt.”)

image

(A++ Google, carry on.)

Anyway, so Captain America has a lot of manpain too.

image

Because he’s grieving and lonely, Captain America works hard at forming connections with the new people he meets. He doesn’t understand their frame of cultural reference, so he diligently follows up whenever somebody gives him a book or movie or other kind of recommendation.

image

He visits a support group for veterans.

image


He also checks in with his teammates regularly, and makes sure they know that he cares about them. He listens to their problems and offers his support.

image

So my point here is pretty simple. I think the Captain America characterization is a lot more interesting and complex. It just gets boring to have a character like Batman who is always going to have the same shit because he’s never gonna deal with his shit because he’s not allowed to deal with his shit. By contrast, Steve Rogers is warm and human and adult and fucken’ heroic. He’s got shit too but he mans up and carries it the best he can.

Both Batman and Captain America are actually team leaders, but Batman isn’t allowed to be a very good one because he also has to be a brooding loner who hangs out on top of gargoyles most of the time. Preferably in the rain.

Captain America gets rained on, too. The difference, I think, is that at some point he would go out and buy an umbrella.

A Very Good Color - The Yearbook Office

yearbookoffice:

"We knew we wanted that car, so all we had to decide was the color. “This should be easy,” I said to Sara. I was a fool.

The second we walked into the dealership I felt like a piece of bloody meat splashing into a shark tank.

The fastest shark was Phil. I’m calling him Phil because that was his name. I’m not protecting him. He was not innocent. He was human evil.”

- A Very Good Color by Joseph Scrimshaw (aka josephscrimshaw)

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.
