You could argue comic books have little importance in the grander scheme of things. But comic books make a big statement in a small way. We won’t have blockbuster movies about a Muslim superhero until we can all be excited about a comic book portraying one. When Marvel created Khan, it took a shot at breaking the typical paradigm of superheroes. While it’s a small gesture when measured up to the entire comic book world, it’s another step in the movement for equality in entertainment.
For the larger part of the decade, there was a potent cloud of racism and hatred towards Muslim people. Today, the fact we can portray young Muslim girls as superheroes is a beacon of hope for what is to come. Sure, a lot of people will say “it’s just a comic book.” But I’d like to think somewhere out there, it’s making a difference in a young Muslim girl’s life. And even if the message gets lost and Khan’s character doesn’t sell well, at least a young girl could have her own superhero to look up to.

In honor of Lord Byron’s birthday I would like to remind you all of the time that Shelley and Keats, having not heard from him for some time, became concerned for his safety and it was determined that Shelley would go looking for him. Keats received a letter some time later that…

You know what they say! One man’s tragic flaw is another man’s pretty reasonable personality asset under the circumstances, I guess. Do…do they say that?

THIS IS AMAZING.

Also leads me to wonder more about various other characters-by-the-same-author-getting-swapped.

Such as—

ELIZABETH BENNET IN MANSFIELD PARK

HENRY CRAWFORD: Damn girl you are fly!

EDMUND BERTRAM: Mary who?

TOM BERTRAM: Marry me even though I am a minor character, you know minor characters will treat you right.

(confession: I am not able to think of Elizabeth Bennet except in terms of ‘Damn girl you are fly.’)

MISS MARPLE AS HASTINGS IN A POIROT NOVEL

POIROT: My dear and respected aged madam, listen to my quick wit in detecting-

MISS MARPLE: *sniffs* I solved this case in the time it took you to perfectly arrange your excessively foreign moustache.

POIROT: I couldn’t convict this murderer SO I MURDERED HIM.

MISS MARPLE: That seems excessive when one can just ASSAULT PEOPLE WITH GARDENING TOOLS.

POIROT: The crimes of England are all solved. The manors of England are all ablaze.

MISS MARPLE: Well, that escalated quickly.

(and, egotistically) NICK RYVES IN UNSPOKEN

KAMI: I’m going to do a piece on you in my school newspaper! Please answer these questions: a) age b) current address c) so you’re a demon from another world, what’s that like? Also can we take your picture?

NICK: Sure. Enjoy. I’m not wearing a shirt. The world should know.

KAMI: Do you even own a shirt?

NICK: Is this still part of the interview or is it a come-on?

KAMI: It’s not a come-on. No. No. Nope.

NICK: You like a dude with a shirt?

KAMI: I like a dude with feelings. Lots of feelings. Like, a chocolate selection box full of exciting and conflicting emotion.

NICK: I had a feeling one time.

KAMI: I’m very happy for you.

NICK: It was about my brother.

KAMI: I’m very sad for him.

NICK: I don’t know why, but as a sex demon I enjoy a challenge. Can I get your number?

KAMI: You can have this number. It is the number of a pizza place.

NICK: … I like pizza.
