Things We Saw Today: The Mobilization of Tumblr

Tumblr’s official .tumblr shares some info on just how many of their users they mobilized with their attempt to raise awareness of the Protect IP Act/SOPA. Turns out it was super powerful, but we won’t know if it’s been super effective for a while now. All the more reason to keep it super powerful. (

Hello, my name is Logan and I’ll be your server tonight. (/Film)

  • Marvel has announced the cancellation of its current Ghost Rider title (yes, the current Ghost Rider is female), and with its departure Marvel will have no ongoing solo titles about a female superhero, only featuring its female superheroes in team books. (Comic Book Resources) For this, we give them a Lisa of Disapproval:

Here’s two new banner images for The Avengers. We’re not super happy about Black Widow being the only character to show her butt to the camera, so we’re just going to pretend that Loki’s showing his butt too, but the cape is in the way. Does anyone else think that Tony and Thor are suffering from a severe case of photoshopped headitus? See them bigger at Comics At The Movies.

Catch the thrilling conclusion of this tale of high suspense at Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.

    That comic was actually pretty clever, although one cannot help but think that perhaps the father is a little short-sighted. There’s a good number of royal women who, in the past, have married a prince and kicked plenty of plebian arse. I mean just look at Isabella I of Castile, or Queen Boudica (although I’m not sure she was a princess at all). I know I’m looking into a humorous comic too much, but it seems to me that it’s not giving kick-arse princesses across the world, both past and present, their dues.

    Oh yeah, and screw Marvel and their cheap arse shot. Yes, Scarlett has a nice arse, we get it. I don’t need it thrust in my face with every single bloody advert.

    Giving out about Scarlett’s ass showing is just the quasi-feminist bullshit I’ve come to expect from this website. Every little thing has to be nitpicked. How about Hawkeye’s crotch shot? Are you happy about that? Or the fact that the Captain America movie was sold to non-comic book fans on the back of Chris’s abs and pecks? Pick all the battles, not just the one that suits your side of the coin.

    If you have some kind of problem with feminism then maybe this site isn’t for you, and that is literally the nicest possible thing I could find to say to your comment.

  • Carla Mann

    Okay, I don’t normally engage because frankly I don’t care. But seriously, do you not get the difference between idealization and objectification? Setting aside for the moment that you can’t see Hawkeye’s crotch because it is covered up by the A, the difference between focusing on Cap’s and Thor’s abs and pecs is that they are portrayed as the ideal male form – the form that men who are physically powerful achieve. Women in comics and comic book movies are  presented as having a form that is pleasing to men. And that is the problem with the ass shot – Natasha is being portrayed as eye-candy rather than as a character. And that is a problem because women are sentient beings who have a right to exist on their own merit and not simply as cardboard fantasy cut-outs in a male world. This is not “quasi-feminist bullshit.” The way media (especially Hollywood and comic books) portray women is a real and systematic problem.

    I’d like to introduce you to a little thing called “context”.

    Context: Because not all ass shots are created equal.

    That shot of Black Widow also appeared in the poster for GI Joe with the Baroness. It’s only there for one reason. While I can’t say I’m not attracted to Scarlett’s arse, I don’t really need to see it plastered on a poster for a movie. She should be striking a pose like the guys.

  • Amy C.

    When I saw those posters I was impressed that they actually got both boobs and butt facing forward (although the boobs are hidding by the A).

    To be a true STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER she’d need to twist her spine so that her butt and boobs were both facing head on. I’ll accept nothing less!

  • Kath

    But surely sideboob is also good? It’s not giving away everything, but is still a hint of bap.

    Surely it’s just a playful reference to Scarlett’s landmark role in Lost in Translation? That tush isn’t just sex appeal. It’s a film icon.

    Well, now you’ve done it.  That’s all the excuse they needed to replace all of Scarlett Johansson’s ad appearances with close-ups of her butt.

    I hope you’re proud of yourself, mister!
