I casually just had Andrew Scott like 3 meters away from me today, but I wasn’t 100% sure it was him at that moment and I wouldn’t have wanted to bother him anyway but damn son, it was nice seeing him XD
Only 3 days until the Series Premiere! MONDAY SEPT 22 8/7c on FOX!
Let’s be honest everyone would rather watch a Black Widow movie than antman
[Disclaimer: I’m doing this not because I don’t want a Black Widow/female lead movie, I totally agree with the first statement of this post, what I differ is with the second part. Unjustified hate based in misinformation is not ok.]
Hi, Tumblr user namors is here to teach you a little lesson! Because knowledge is power (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Myth: Hank Pym is a trashy misogynist who doesn’t deserve a movie.
Fact: Ultimates!Hank Pym IS a trashy misogynist…
just like Ultimates!Steve Rogers is a fascist jerk and he had many movies. I’ve been on tumblr for 3 years and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a post telling me not to watch Cap’s films because he’s that way. BECAUSE HE ISN’T THAT WAY in the movies.
Marvel only uses aesthetic aspects form the Ultimate Universe, not character traits.
Fact: 616!Hank Pym ISN’T a trashy misogynist.
Hank is a mentally unestable hero, suffering from a Bipolar Disorder (type 2 more exactly, confirmed in Avengers A.I. #5 and #6) who hit his wife ONCE under the influence of this disease. By this I’m not saying what he’s done is justified, but checking the symptoms helps to understand what he’s been through.
It’s stated in Avengers A.I. #5 that he’s been in an episode of hypomania (BP-II is characterized by at least one episode of hypomania and at least one episode of major depression) since the creation of Ultron, which happened before the accident with Jan.
These are hypomania symptoms:
- Persistent disinhibition.
- Pervasive elevated (euphoric) or irritable mood.
- Thoughts and behaviors that are consistent with such a mood state.
- Decreased need for sleep.
- Increased talkativeness.
- Racing thoughts.
- Overactivity, especially in goal-directed areas.
- Psychomotor agitation.
- Excessive participation in risky behaviors, such as hypersexuality.
To me these are the SAME traits Hank had as his hero identity Yellowjacket, which was his current identity when all this happened.
After he was expelled from the Avengers because of his recklessly attitude, he was doomed in depression and he made many other bad choices, even leading him to jail and suicidal attempts.
Then we have his Skrull abduction so basically he was missing for at least 7 years, replaced by an alien who copied all his actions, and even this Skrull suffered from depression when Hank’s best friend Bill Foster was killed during Civil War.
When he came back, all he had was gone, since his ex-wife was “dead” and also his friend Bill, so he decided to build him a heaven (since they couldn’t shrunk him to normal and had to bury him rolled with a sheet), set the “Janet Van Dyne Centers for Women" and also took her mantle as a tribute since "she’s the greatest hero I’ve ever knew”. That to me doesn’t look like he’s a trashy misogynist.
There you go! And I hope this helps you to really understand the character before judging him because of an out-of-context panel (✿◠‿◠)
