Fantastic 4 Reboot Film Has No Relation to the Comics
Remember how pissed off everyone got when they found out the studios cast a black actor as the Human Torch and a white actress for his sister Sue Storm? Well there apparently was good reason for them not clarifying why this brother and sister duo are bi-racial. That’s because nothing in the movie has anything to do with the comics. Period.

Apparently the director has thrown everything about the comics out the window. There likely won’t be any fancy costumes, the characters won’t be called “The Fantastic 4” in the movie itself, and no part of the plot is going to be related to ANY prior comic storyline. The actress for Sue Storm asked if she should read any of the comics to get caught up and the director told her “don’t bother.”

So, yup.... this is gonna be shit. At least we have an explanation now for the strange casting choices though.

Thor is a Woman
Another rather shocking unveiling this week was the announcement from Marvel that Thor is going to be a woman now. Announced on The View yesterday, a new female character is going to enter the series, be deemed worthy to wear the Thor armor and wield the hammer, and take over Thor’s role after he’s unceremoniously cast out as being unworthy.

“This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR." - Ryan Penagos Executive Editorial Director of Marvel

So technically Thor ISN’T becoming a woman, but a woman is coming in to take over his role and will be called Thor in his books as the main character.

I gotta say... I’m confused about this decision. On the one hand, I am thrilled they’re giving female characters more meaty roles and allowing them to be front and center like this... but on the other hand it’s just... ODD to cast out the main character of his own book to be supplanted by a female doppelgänger. I mean, her NAME is not Thor. Thor’s name is Thor. Thor is not his job title, that’s actually his NAME. So yeah, it feels weird to have a female character who isn’t Thor coming into his own book, taking his place, and calling herself Thor instead. That would be like if a woman took over Iron Man’s armor and called herself Tony Stark.

And of course part of me knows that this isn’t a permanent thing. She isn’t going to be Thor forever. Eventually the real Thor is going to get his powers back, and return to his place as the main character of his own series again. So... why go to all this trouble? If they wanted a female Thor, why not have her own series that’s separate? The whole thing feels like a shameless gimmick, and that rubs me the wrong way.

And then there’s the possibility that this is all an awkward attempt to give Todd McFarlane the middle finger. See, way back in the 90’s Neil Gaiman created a character known as Angela for Todd McFarlane’s Spawn series. Under contract agreements, Neil got to keep the character rights to anything he created, even if it was for someone else’s book. But when Neil asked for the rights, Todd kept refusing to give them back. After many legal battles ensued, Neil finally won back the rights to use Angela from McFarlane and worked with Marvel to reintegrate her into the Marvel canon as Thor and Loki’s long-lost sister. So there is a good chance that this new female Thor is actually Angela, and this whole publicity stunt is Marvel giving a big public “FUCK YOU” to Todd McFarlane.

If you’d like to know more about the whole Neil Gaiman/Todd McFarlane debacle, you should watch MovieBob’s 3 part series on the subject:
Part 1 - Comics in the 90’s What Happened? www.escapistmagazine.com/video…
Part 2 - Marvel Mess www.escapistmagazine.com/video…
Part 3 - Miracle, Man www.escapistmagazine.com/video…


Of course that might not be the case. The info we’ve gotten about who the woman is is kinda sporadic and unclear. Some sources saying it’s someone Thor rescued and saved, others saying it’s an entirely new person. So who knows what’s truly up. We’ll have to wait for this whole thing to play out this October.

That Tropes vs Women in Gaming Part 2 video sure has brought on a lot of serious discussions hasn't it? I don't mean to keep wading deeper into all this, but one question begs another and this is something I'm really curious about: What's the difference between objectification... and just being sexy?

For me this is a really tough question to answer. Speaking as a heterosexual male it's a bit of a double standard. On the one hand, objectification of women and the constant sexualization of women in the majority of media around us is, I think, overwhelmingly bad for us as a society (and I've talked at great length about this subject in the past). But on the other hand there's absolutely nothing wrong with being attracted to women or finding them sexy. Speaking from a male perspective of course, this concept can be applied to how both men and women see things.

I think our tendency to over simplify things is why so many people don't take feminists seriously, because there's this belief that all feminists want to get rid of sexy female characters from media and replace them with ball-busting angry women. And that's not true. Sexy characters are used to damaging affect against women in real life, but being sexy is not a bad thing in and of itself. It's ok to be attracted to women, while also acknowledging the very real problem of women being overly sexualized and presented as objects for men to gawk over. I know that seems like hypocrisy, and maybe it is, but it's a very real truth.

Here's one thing I know gets brought up a lot. You don't have to have women presented nearly naked to be attractive. Women can wear clothing or armor and still be considered "hot." And it doesn't need to be form fitting either. The way in which a piece of clothing is worn and expressed by the person is what's attractive. This blog on tumblr is one of my favorites because it shows how women in the industry are presented, vs how they could still be viewed as attractive without making them half-naked all the time. I strongly recommend you check it out: repair-her-armor.tumblr.com/

And I think that's ultimately what this comes down to... the way in which sexuality is used. A very good example that MovieBob made involves Ivy from the Soul Calibur series. For the most part she dresses ridiculously with absurd outfits and an over-proportioned body to boot: fronttowardsgamer.com/wp-conte… But that's not inherently objectification as ALL the characters within the Soul Calibur series are ridiculously over stylized to the point of extremes. That's kinda Soul Calibur's weird little universe it's created, and there are often different more modest costumes you can pick and chose if you desire.

However, this advertisement campaign iplaywinner.com/storage/oneuse… for Soul Calibur 5 is objectifying because it reduces Ivy to nothing but her breasts. Her face is intentionally cropped out and the snake leading into her chest is obviously meant to be phallic shaped. There's no other subtext to this advertisement other than "imagine your dick here." That's degrading no matter who the character is suppose to be.

One of the problems with the complexity of life is that we can't blanket statement everything. Exceptions always exist. But we also can't explore every exception, because that just takes up too much energy and brain power to comprehend at times. So we're kinda stuck in this in-between realm where with one breath we can be standing up for women's rights and denouncing those who don't, then in the next breath fawning and appreciating the attractiveness of women. Here in America it's kinda a taboo, but we shouldn't be afraid of sexuality.

I'll be honest. I have no answer for this. Like I said, it's a ridiculous double standard and even slightly hypocritical at times... but there it is. Women can be objectified, but they can also be very attractive and sexy. What are your thoughts? What defines the difference between objectification of women (or men), and finding women (or men) sexy/attractive? Is there a middle ground or is it just extremes on both sides? Is there a solution to this problem? I am very curious to know what you all think about this subject because I haven't yet formed a solid enough idea myself and would love to hear from all sides if possible.
