Why hello! I didn't see you there. Welcome to my blog, my name is Zach and please enjoy your stay. I am a die-hard Batman fan with a major love of DC comics and you'll find a random assortment of nerdy things here.
Today at the gym I had the crazy revelation of how much I have improved in my fitness goals. I remember back in high school when 100 was my one rep max on bench and now here I am repping 165 as my power set, aiming for a 200 bench max. Today, I was able to squat 225 twenty times and I remember when I hit that as a one rep max. The reason for all of this rambling is that I just want to thank everyone in my life who has pushed me, yelled at me, and made me reach so much farther than I have ever thought I could achieve.
I don’t agree with that at all.
I think the mutant fear still makes perfect, though sad, sense in the Marvel Universe, and here’s why.
Bigots don’t need logic. It’s way, WAY down on their list of priorities.
The biggest supposed patriots and military supporters still treated black military men like shit in World War II. People who say they ‘don’t care what someone does in their own home’ still make gay jokes and are tolerant of gay panic. It doesn’t need to make sense, it just needs to make them uncomfortable to be afraid.
And in the MU, the idea is not that people are afraid of mutants because of their powers, I always felt it was because mutants are BORN DIFFERENT. Which is, let’s face it, the root cause of most jackass bigotry in the world today, anyway.
As a second thought, mutants to many represent a threat to their belief that homo sapiens is the dominant life form on Earth and always will be. If babies are being born that can mentally lift a tank, that idea is threatened.
Anyway, that’s my thinking.
I just want to say thank you to all of my followers, not just the new ones, but to all of you!
