X-Men: First Class

Went to see this lovely gem of a movie yesterday with inkwraith. Ahhh, Marvel... how you like to mess with our heads!

So. Like. I totally saw it coming but... c'mon. Token Black Guy is the one mutant to be murdered. And Token Black Chick is the one to go evil. *facepalm* *facepalm* *facepalm*

Is my perception that comics fandom is particularly racist and sexist true? I mean, above and beyond other entertainment/fandoms. I'm totally willing to be wrong about this, but. Um. Yeah.

ON THE OTHER HAND! I loved how the whole movie was about the epic romance of Professor X and Magneto! Like, for serious!

Yo! It's totally not just me drinking the slash!kool-aid, I swear! Even the official video is... highly suggestive. (No spoilers in this video, really, as you just get a few quick glimpses.)


(PS: The best thing about the movie = how much more fucked up the Summers family is going to be as the comics try to "fit" this version into retconned-to-high-hell canon! :D)

...wow, how sad is it that my only Marvel icon is a Spider-man one I used to use for posting about work?
