Waiting for Wonder Woman

There is a moment, during Wonder Woman, when Diana and Steve are rushing through one of the trenches on the front lines, and Diana stops to speak with a distraught woman who begs for her help. Steve tries to pull her with him, saying they need to keep going and this is not what they’re here for. Diana says no, this is what I’m here for.

It’s the Superhero Series I’ve Been Waiting For

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh SHIT, you guys!

I have spent several months bitching about the fact that Daredevil is all about an angsty white guy with brown hair, and Gotham is all about an angsty white guy with brown hair, and Flash is all about an angsty white guy with brown hair, and Arrow is all about an angsty white guy with brown hair – do you get where I’m going with this?

I’ve mentally checked out of the last few superhero movies because I cannot, CANNOT, get excited about white guys with brown hair angsting it up anymore. I have absolutely no interest. My boredom with the parade of white guys with brown hair and tortured pasts knows no bounds. I’ve been hanging on, only because Captain Marvel is going to be a thing at some point.

But then – THEN! – the clouds parted, the veil was lifted, and down from on high was delivered almost everything my poor heart has cried out for.
