Uncanny X-Force - The last issue of Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-Force comes out today. Rick along with Jerome, Dean, Esad, Mark, Billy, Greg, Mike, David, Julian and Frank created hands-down one of the most exciting comic series to hit the shelves in years. Rick and I have been friends for a long time and it was a dream come true to collaborate with him on this. Thanks to all of you who bought and supported the book!
Betsy Braddock 1982- So last night Rick Remender alerted me to the fact that Psylocke’s purple hair was actually a conscious fashion choice that British model, Betsy made in 1982. So as Ricky Bobby would say, ” I like to picture my Betsy Braddock as a punk rocker hanging out the club wearin’ her Joy Division t-shirt, drinkin’ beer and smokin’ them fancy cigarettes.” Amen.

"Miss Betsy Braddock, London. This former model now works for the government and as seen here, is a fan of The Smiths. She also likes Joy Division/New Order, Ultravox, Public Image Limited, and Siouxsee and the Banshees. Any lads that fancy a smart girl with purple hair now know what music to play on the first date."
which ones? Is it the ones that have been dead for 2,000 years? Pretty sure Egypt doesn’t bury its leaders in pyramids anymore.
I can’t speak for any other Egyptian but I’m sure as hell not offended by this and I’m sure my parents aren’t offended at all. They’re mainly worried about the political unrest going on at the moment.
Id like to hear reasoning as to why this is culture appropriation because everything Sean said is right. I’m mainly laughing really hard at how silly and dumb that tweet is.
So if I wear a toga am I crapping on the dignity of Italians?
No. I am partying hard.
(Or all my clothes were stolen and I have to wear a sheet, and it’s better than people thinking I’m a ghost.)
I’m gonna culturally appropriate the hell out of vikings this halloween and you can’t stop me tumblr.
Yo Yoo-Ess-Aye, can I culturally appropriate your bacon cheeseburgers? ‘cause they’re delish.

There’s a fantastic fic writer who’s quite prolific in this area. Sixty stories already! I don’t know if they’re doing any more. Their username is ‘Arthur_Conan_Doyle’ but you have to google their stuff. They don’t put it on ff.net or AO3 or anything like that. Real awesome period piece type stuff too. They get all the little details right. It’s amazing.
I will still be laughing about this in my grave
