blackfolksmakingcomics:

I have a question that you don’t have the answer to.

DC has a pair of Supermen who are Black in their established universes, Calvin Ellis and Val-Zod. The former was created by iconic writer Grant Morrison and is a major part of his Multiversity mini-series while the latter is the new face of Earth 2 and headlining that book and an upcoming miniseries.

And yet, the comic media hasn’t made a big to-do about these two characters the way they have for Miles Morales, the Spider-Man of the Marvel Ultimate universe. 

Is it because Miles took over a fan-favorite role? It can’t be because Calvin and Val-Zod are in alternate universes (again, Miles is still limited to the Ultimate Universe). 

It’s just weird seeing two versions of one of comic’s biggest icon not getting much shine. It’s DC’s fault. They don’t care about Superman.

i’ve literally seen no gorilla fursonas. i am glad you embrace it

I’ve thought a lot about this. Not really. But enough that I think it boils down to apes being “too easy” for a fursona.

Where’s the challenge in identifying with an animal that shares almost all of your exact same DNA?

Iron Will

"The Bastard Path" is also a candidate. It’s the name of a song I wrote about Blackbeard.

they are the baras of the animal world too

I am a total specist with apes and wish I was one of the main three.

I like to think of myself as an orange-tan but I’m totally a grill.

As much as I hate it when people don’t have the full story about something before farting out their astute opinion on whatever, I have always taken comfort in the Socrates mentality of “not knowing everything is okay”.

Iron Will

Why would you deny us the opportunity to see Alexis beat up a chimpanzee?

It is a writer’s job to disappoint and blueball the audience, that’s why.

why are gorillas your favorite animal?

Because they can throw barrels much better than humans can.
