About Noah Brand

  1. I was a Cap fan from the moment I picked up my first Avengers and he has always been my favorite (but only because the Vision never sustained his own title). Cap is simultaneously the most human and most super-human hero around. Plus, I ate up all the gung-ho bullshit he spouted because…well, I actually do believe in the better angels of democracy (despite all evidence to the contrary).

    My big problem with the on-screen Cap is the no chain-mail thing. Plus his mask was all wrong.

    I’ll be looking for the book once I get a paycheck…

  2. “One difference, as some female readers have pointed out, is that if guys fail to be masculine they become feminized–pussies, fags, etc.–whereas if women fail to be feminine they don’t become masculinized; they become nothing. Nonentities. “You can’t fail up,” is how one of them put it.”

    Umm, NO. What is he even talking about? How do we supposedly even regard “former women” as “nonentitites”? Women are masculinized when they go outside gender norms and criticized for it, but that’s much rarer because “womanhood” is much harder to take away from a woman than “manhood” is taken away from men, but also because women are simply allow greater latitude when it comes to gender expression.
