The Walking Dead // Guns and Ammunition [Part 1/2]
Anthony Mackie being the first black superhero (and making Bill O’Reilly uncomfortable) on Jimmy Fallon (x)
I am so happy that Anthony Mackie is a person that exists.
For anyone who’s going: “But what about Storm/Hancock/Frozone/War Machine etc etc?”: they’re referring to the fact that the character Falcon was the first African-American superhero* created (debuted in Captain America #177 in 1969). If you’ve watched the clip, you’ll notice that Mackie corrects Jimmy Fallon when he says first black superhero. This is because the first black superhero was Black Panther - debuted in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966 - whom lives in the fictive African country Wakanda, and is thus not a citizen of the USA.
(* = the word “superhero” is usually not used for hero characters that pre-date Superman, nor actually very often used outside the mainstream comic book companies aka DC Comics and Marvel Comics. This is why such characters as The Phantom, created in 1936 aka 2 years before Superman, and whom wears spandex and a mask and punches evil guys in the face, is not generally dubbed a super hero. Anyway, the point of this asterisk is that I have no idea how many fictional, non-“super” hero characters there were of African decent before 1966)
He’s so fucking stoked, I can’t even deal with it. And throw some open, careless contempt for Bill O’Reilly into the bargain!
Seeing Anthony Mackie do anything is like watching a beam of sunshine fall down on a herd of puppies playing in a beautiful field of wildflowers. Cereal.
The first and last time Mako Mori sees Stacker Pentecost. Both times she has tears running down her cheeks, but the emotions are very different.
here’s the rudest gifset on the Internet
Omg, his absolute look of despair when he says no XD

Iron Man Trilogy + The Avengers : Iron Man 3 - Tony’s smile
So I was on tvtropes and was reading the page for the Iron Man movies, and someone had put on there that Dummy was one of the first robots Tony had ever built. And I went back and watched those opening scenes again, when they’re doing that profile of Tony and mention him graduating from MIT at 17, and sure enough it’s Dummy that he’s pictured with in that magazine article. I don’t know how I missed it the first ten times I watched this movie.
And then there go all my feels, because he might tell Dummy he’s useless all the time but he still kept him even though it’s been like 20 years since Tony built him and he’s had to have come up with a hundred better designs for him by now but he hasn’t scrapped him, just made various attachments for him so he can use him all the time, even for putting together his Iron Man suit. And then Dummy goes and saves his life. So yeah all my feels for Tony and his robots :’)
Oh hello, I did not expect all these feels all of a sudden.
Oh no. Oh, I can’t even.
Fun Fact: There exists a fic in which Dummy is magically turned into a toddler. Surprisingly full of feels.
i need a link to this, desperately.

I enjoyed the new Captain America movie quite a bit. But I knew its soundtrack was missing something.
