8 Things We’re Thankful For


Allow Us To Explain

Allow Us To Explain

Bear with us, non-American readers: Thanksgiving is tomorrow, at least in the U.S., and it’s made us at The Mary Sue contemplate the variety of things from this year we’re thankful for.

From comics to movies to cosplay and other con-related fun, here’s just a sample of what has made us happy to be geeks in 2012. Getting a bit sappy for a moment, this list is dedicated to the thing we’re most thankful for: Our readers. Well, second most thankful. There’s Batman, after all.

    I suspect at least some in the US are mainly thankful at least some of them survived the coming of the European guests.

    Black Widow didn’t have to seduce someone in Avengers, but she did start the movie tied up and wearing a dress. She’s a step forward, but I’m not ready to be thankful yet.

    I would like to state that I am thankful that I found “Todd and the Book of Pure Evil” on Netflix Instant Watch a few days ago. Two seasons in less than a week. I also HOPE to be thankful for a renewel to a third season.

    “Jennifer Lawrence took the screen as Katniss for the first time… and was exactly how we imagined her while reading the novels.”

    >.< You mean aside from the whitewashing? How Katniss was described as "olive skinned" in the books but only White actors were allowed to audition for the part?

    I mean, yeah, be grateful that The Hunger Games made so much money with a female lead, and that the female lead wasn't sexualized. I'm right there with you. But claiming that JLaw is "exactly" how you imagined a character who's canonically olive skinned is insensitive at the very least.

    I wasn’t referring to her physical appearance there but rather her actual characterization.
