Hi! I'm a big Marvel fan and I'm really looking forward to Ms Marvel in February and meeting Kamala. I know most of the Carol Corps are too. I was wondering if you had any opinion on a fandom name for her. We've got the Carol Corps, and I've seen people tossing around Kamala Korps or Kamala Krew. Just wondered what you thought about it, or if you liked one more than the other.
I love the fact that the #KamalaKorps tag arose so spontaneously (and instantaneously!) on Twitter, so I’m rolling with it. Get psyched for Issue 1!
KAMALA KORPS IT IS.
I’d never, ever hurt a lady but I’d be happy to punch a feminist.
It’d bring me great joy.
I’m 6’2 and weigh 180lbs
ready when you are
Or if you’d like to have some more options….
and have 9 years of combined martial arts training and 3 years of being a Line Backer in football.
Just in case you are looking for variety.
what about a lady and a feminist. warning, combatives certified soldier.
I think we’re overreacting. Have you all been to his blog? Here’s his title piece: “Conservative, culturist, advocate of fair play and rights for women without the use of feminism, a fan of the avant garde, proponent of all culture, lover of beer, collector of vintage sunglasses and owner of far too many suits.”
He’s the most hipster of hipsters to ever hip, and basicly, my four year old niece could take this guy. And win.
I do not think that word means what he thinks it means.
(also: bring it.)
May we all remember what it was like to be so young. May we remember it factually, and not remember anything that is false, or incorrect.
May we all be human – beautiful, stupid, temporal, endless.

“Is increasing the minimum wage good policy? Does it do what it’s supposed to do (that is, alleviate poverty), or does it simply decrease the number of entry-level jobs? About 35 million workers, or about 26 percent of the workforce in the U.S., earn less than $10.50 per hour. About three-quarters of those 35 million workers are older than 20, and the majority are women. So we’re not talking about kids in high school working a part-time job bagging groceries. We’re talking about a very significant number of workers. Therefore, any rise in their wages would have a ripple effect for the good on the U.S. economy. How do we know that? Well, there’s been no social policy that’s been studied as much as the minimum wage. And study after study, across the spectrum of liberal and conservative economists, all overwhelmingly concludes that raising the minimum wage is a good thing. When you raise the minimum wage, employee turnover decreases and morale increases; other measures of productivity also improve. That should be good news for employers. But most importantly, it puts more money into the pockets of a large number of people who need it the most. And those people also are more likely to spend that money, which will then circulate throughout the economy. Really, it would be like another stimulus. And there are very few areas of social policy where you could make a difference in the lives of so many people than in raising the minimum wage. The bottom line: An increase in the minimum wage would not be bad for business. It would be an unalloyed good for the U.S.”
I think the biggest issue with this debate is the fact that people say “I never thought of minimum wage as a job that you can support a family on.” With the idea that minimum wage jobs are only for teenagers or students or ___, we’re doing everyone a disservice. The fact that so many Americans work 40 or more hours a week at a job and still exist far below the poverty line is abhorrent. A recent NPR story noted that a large number of those working in finance at the entry level, making well above the national minimum wage, mind you, are living so far below the poverty line that they have to rely on public benefits like TANF or WIC to survive.
If the minimum wage is the lowest that can be paid, okay. But the idea that a family should be able to survive on the minimum wage is, and has for a very long time been, completely ridiculous. And I guess if industries alone cannot decide employees deserve a basic living wage, it is absolutely time to push this issue. The working poor are working to hard to remain this poor.
the entire reason that iron man, cap and thor got movies is because marvel sold the rights to literally every character anyone wanted even a tiny bit to keep from going totally bankrupt and hulk,thor, iron man and cap were all that was left
and those are now characters that are headlining a billion dollar franchise and some of them are all over the place in the comics too
you can literally take just about any character and turn them A-list if you put money behind them and give them quality exposure, there is literally no excuse at this point why they can’t at least try a female or poc led movie
especially if they not only retain the rights to a certain character, but know that they have a fairly intense fan base of women who would throw money at a film version of their favorite superhero….
I’m talking about Carol Danvers.
