I love thou?
WHOSOEVER HOLDS THIS HAMMER, IF SHE BE WORTHY, SHALL POSSESS THE POWER OF THOR.
ACTUAL GODDESS NATASHA ROMANOV
I always knew she was one :D
As is so often true of comics, a lot of the awesome is in the details. Natasha can’t move the Hammer when she first reaches it. What makes her worthy at the end when she apparently wasn’t worthy just seconds before? Look at panels 2-3 again. Natasha’s got that big ogre right on top of her with his club already going back to strike … and instead of shooting it to save herself, she uses her last shot to bring down the flying reptile that’s chasing that fleeing shuttle. That act of self-sacrifice in the face of certain death is what made her worthy.
I am in love with the idea of Natasha Romanoff, Black Widow, worthy wielder of the hammer of Thor.
I am in hate with that f’ing costume. Also mildly in hate with the duckface pout pose, but seriously in hate with that costume.
What the fuck is wrong with her breats? Why is her belt buckle an upside down Deadpool head?
Why the fuck does it only take one action of self sacrifice to become worthy?
OOH. Good point! Because Natasha was already the sort of person who would take that shot to save the shuttle instead of herself. Actually doing it didn’t change her at all. So, IDK, the hammer apparently isn’t judging your innermost self, it has to see you being worthy? Can you fool it by acting worthy around it, while secretly being an asshole elsewhere? :P
Not just that, there were TWO Ogres. Killing one means that the other one could still kill her. So yeah, not a self sacrifice.
I mean, I have nothing against it, it’s just…not a good example?
Maybe she reached a sort of Zen self sacrifice level?
Maybe because of the Desperation going on, Mjolnir was primed to be picked up by someone who did self sacrifice around it? Basically you don’t have to be full on Worthy to pick it up when times are shit.
Incidentally, Charles Xavier should be able to pick up Mjolnir. Think about it. He can mindrape the entire world. He can commit any crime and get away with it. There are no consequences. And within a generation he wouldn’t have to do it anymore. But he doesn’t. He tries things the hard way. The moral way.
Just as keikaku
(Also this photoset has tons of adorable zerox and bassrock)
"Here, I’ll give you this. It’s a present."
[You got the Blues Shield!]
(Blues? Bruce? Damn you romaji!)
"You’re really, really giving me this?!"
"Yeah, of course."
"Yaaay! Thank you Blues
(Bruce?!), I really like you!”
…Yeah that wasn’t as cute as it looks at first. XD
It’s Blues. And yes, oh my god it is.
See, Blues is the first robot and Rock’s elder brother, but Rock doesn’t know. And Blues is all…
Look, Laryna can explain it better than me.
so asukaskerian asked about our troll pacific rim headcanons, and after I filled up my fifth askbox I realised that I should probably just make it a post and tag her haha. be warned, here be headcanons.
AHHH! I just had a thought.
Okay, one of the background themes of PacRim is things falling apart, the old ways not working, right? Too much destruction putting too much stress on the culture.
So maybe there’s some funky Trollish SciFi Cultural spec that results in some of the weird relationships. Like no one in universe talks about how the Stacker/Maykoh thing is weird Pale Lususy and stuff, because this sort of thing has been cropping up more and more often as the Kaiju kill more and more, and kill lususii…
wow, the Sea dweller lususii are going to be taking massive massive hits, yes?
Cats in places they 104% shouldn’t be, from Buzzfeed
Okay, wait wait wait. THAT EGG ONE IS REALLY FUCKING COOL THO!
See, ‘facial recognition’ (it’s a bit broader than that) is a thing we have genetically, or you know, eyes. That’s what keeps baby birds from thinking mommy’s butt is mommy’s head. It is what lets spitting cobras aim for the eyes—they will aim for the shiny tabs on backpacks if you threaten them with one.
(I never said it was good facial recognition, mind you.)
Anyways, cats, there’s a short period after they give birth where they will basically adopt anything, kind of like a reverse bird imprinting.
The thing is, Eggs are not recognizably alive, really. There’s nothing on them, no movement, no sound, no eyes, to tell the mama cat that these are babies.
And she adopted them anyways. So…either she’s confused, or she knows that they are alive.

Omfg. Um. Hello there.

The best part is that there’s a fairly decent chance, given the background of the photo (dry wilderness and scrub brush) that the firefighter in this picture is a Hotshot—
And Hotshots, along with Smoke-Jumpers, are sort of like… Okay. If firefighters are rockstars, Hot-Shots are Queen and Smoke-Jumpers are whatever Tony Stark uses to rev himself up for badassery.
Hotshots are elite firefighters who train extensively and are inserted into high-risk terrain in order to fight the fire on the ground.
In layman’s terms—if there’s a forest fire threatening your house, the hotshots are the dudes digging the fire trenches while whirling beams of fire snap give feet from them.
And then, then, there’s the Smoke-Jumpers. As their name implies, they jump smoke.
In layman’s terms—the fires the hotshots can’t reach by land? Those crazy fuckera PARACHUTE into forest fires.
Because jumping out of a plane isn’t scary enough, they do it in near-zero visibility, through scorching smoke, with the risk that the thermals and currents could blow them right into a burning tree, to pick a landing spot so they can then be in remote backwoods wilderness with minimal hope of rescue if something goes tits up.
So yeah. If this lady’s an urban firefighter she’s a huge badass. But if my guess is right and she’s a more elite unit, then I want to have her gay babies like, yesterday.
