allergiesandadventure asked:

Are there any Asian-American Marvel heroines??

womeninmarvel answered:

YES - quite a few! The only one who has her own ongoing is Ms. Marvel, though Jubilee is currently a member of the core team in Brian Wood’s X-Men, and Nico Minoru and Jennifer Takeda are in Avengers Undercover. There have even been a few Asian-American WOC in Marvel films and television.

image

Kamala Khan ("Ms. Marvel") is a Pakistani-American girl living in New Jersey. She is an Inhuman, as we discover when she gains her superpowers after being exposed to the Terrigen mists from Black Bolt’s terrigen bomb. She has shapeshifting powers. 

image 

Hisako Ichiki (“Armor”) was born in Japan. Currently an X-Man, she makes regular appearances in Wolverine and the X-Men. She can project a psionic suit of armor around herself.

image

Nico Minoru (“Sister Grimm”) is Japanese-American. She has magical powers (in the vein of Doctor Strange or Magik) that she channels through her staff. She is a main cast member of Avengers Undercover.

image

Melinda May is presumably of Chinese descent like her actress, Ming-na Wen.She is a badass ex-SHIELD agent in the TV show, Agents of SHIELD.

Skye is played by Chloe Bennett, a biracial Chinese-American woman. Skye herself is something of an enigma - her parents have not been revealed (and may not even be human - check out the Agents of SHIELD finale) - though basically she is a super-hacker and ex-SHIELD agent on the AoS TV show. 

image

Blink is not Asian in the comics (Clarice Ferguson is from the Bahamas) - but in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past film, she is portrayed by Fan Bingbing, a Chinese actress. Blink is a mutant with the ability to teleport, and also to form weapons out of the energy that she manifests her portals out of. 

image

Yukio is Japanese. She is an adventurer who is proficient in martial arts and several different weapons. She appears as an ally of Logan in the recent film, The Wolverine, played by Rila Fukushima.In the comics she was also an ally of Wolverine and is currently recovering from a wound from Deathstrike that left her in a wheelchair.

image

Jubilation Lee(“Jubilee”) is Chinese-American. She was a mutant but was depowered on M-Day. These days she is a vampire and has all the powers of one (such as super strength, turning into mists) but also all the weaknesses. She is a main team member of Brian Wood’s X-Men. She is portrayed by Katrina Florece in a cameo in the X-Men film.

image

Karima Shapandar (formerly “Omega Sentinel”) is Indian. She was originally a police officer who was transformed into the Omega sentinel, an advanced type of Sentinel. Recently she was possessed by Arkea, Sublime’s sister. After purging Arkea from her body Karima returned to be a normal human.

image

Noriko Ashida (“Surge”) was born in Japan, though she was discovered living homeless in New York City. She is a mutant with the power of electrokinesis. The gauntlet she wears helps her to control the force of her electric blasts. She was an important character in both New Mutants and New X-Men. She does not currently appear in any current ongoings as a main character.

image

Sooraya Qadir (“Dust”) is Afghani. She is a mutant with the ability to transform herself into sand. Unlike Sandman, she usually manifests as an airborne sandstorm. She mostly appeared in New X-Men and Young X-Men, and does not appear in any regular ongoings. 

image

Monica Chang is the chief of SHIELD’s AI division and a member of Avengers AI. Based on her last name is likely Chinese-American though this hasn’t been confirmed. In the Ultimates universe, Monica Chang goes by the codename “Black Widow” and was an Avenger.

image

Colleen Wing is at least 1/4 Japanese on her mother’s side, and was herself raised in Japan by her grandfather for awhile. 

image

Melati Kusuma (“Komodo”) is an Indonesian-American who was introduced during the Avengers: Initiative. She transformed in a lizard-like being after Dr. Connors allowed her to experiment with his serum in an attempt to grow her legs back. She retains herself while transformed and can de-transform at will. She has not appeared in Marvel comics for a few years now. 

image

And, thanks to damnversXi’an Coy Manh (“Karma”)is a Vietnamese-American mutant. She basically has the power to possess other people’s minds at will and control them, though there are negative consequences for both her and her subject if she does this for too long. She last appeared in Astonishing X-Men as a main cast member though she only appears sporadically nowadays.

image

It is also worth noting that there is an entire Marvel team of Japanese youths called Big Hero 6 - a book that is being adapted into a Disney-Marvel animated feature. The women on that team include Leiko Tanaka (“GoGo Tomago”) (who can transform into energy and move at high speeds), and Aiko Miyazaki (“Honey Lemon”), who has a purse with access to a different dimension. They have not appeared in comics for quite some time though I predict that they will at least get a one-shot when the new animated feature arrives.

Thanks to javi150190

Jennifer Takeda (“Hazmat”) is a Japanese American mutant who can produce radiation using her own body. She now appears in Avengers Undercover.

Thanks to reservoircat:

Faiza Hussain (“Excalibur”) is a Pakistani-British superhero with the power to manipulate the human body for the purposes of healing. Originally a doctor, Faiza gained her powers when blasted by a Skrull machine during Secret Invasion. Now she is a superhero allied with Captain Britain and the British super team MI-13. She does not appear in any ongoings and most recently appeared as a guest star in Wolverine

Thanks, fyeahlilbit3point0:

Radiance is the upcoming hero to be introduced in All-New Invaders - and she is a legacy heroine, meaning that she has inherited her mantle from previous heroines. The original (center) is Gwendolyne Sabuki, a Japanese-American girl who gains superpowers in an accident in Invaders #26 in the 70s. She and her father were kidnapped from a Japanese internment camp to work for the Axis. When her father’s machine blew up, she and her father gained superpowers - Gwendolyne gained the power to generate golden force beams from her hands and took the name Golden Woman - she presumably died of old age. She eventually had a daughter, Ameiko Sabuki, who took the name Goldfire and appeared in some Thunderbolts comics in the early 2000s. Now, presumably Ameiko’s daughter is Radiance.

Thanks, 10-days-with-superhumans:

Mantis is a half-Vietnamese/half-German woman and veritable superhero powerhouse with a variety of powers ranging from telepathy, enhanced strength and speed, to pyrokinesis. Mantis has had a crazy history in the Marvel U that is rough to sum up in a few sentences - basically know that she is a cosmic character who was predestined to become the “Celestial Madonna” meaning that she would be the mother of a Celestial Messiah- a supremely powerful and important being in the Universe. Mantis even traveled, canonically, to the DC universe and Eclipse universe and has a few adventures there. Mantis does not appear in any ongoings and last appeared as a guest in Guardians of the Galaxy. Her most recent ongoing appearance was in Thanos Imperative with GoTG.  

Thanks, ebondandy

And finally we have Ren Kimura, an Inhuman woman who joined the short-lived Fearless Defenders series. Judging from her last name, Ren Kimura is a Japanese-American woman with the power to create metallic-razor ribbons from the tips of her fingers. Before becoming a superhero, Ren Kimura was a dancer. She has not appeared in any comics since Fearless Defenders was cancelled.

There are probably some other women I forgot. - I left off Psylocke for body-swapping ick factor reasons, and I left out villainesses/love interests to keep it just heroes!

50 Shades of Abuse Flyer - Canada

Click image and magnify for large version.

Okay. I understood all the flack Twilight got for being an abusive relationship. Because it was and it was being read by a very young and impressionable audience. But ffs, 50 Shades is an ADULT NOVEL. Iit is about a BDSM couple. Which - newsflash - do exist. It is a completely consensual form of dominate/submissive sex play. The whole concept of domestic violence and abuse is that one side exerts control over an unwilling victim. I don’t recall Anastasia, or whatever she’s called, protesting to Christian’s form of sex. If I remember correctly, she quite enjoyed it! So before you condemn a work of romanticizedfiction, actually consider it’s audience and remember that they are mature and capable enough to know the difference between reality and fiction.

so i guess you didn’t read the parts where he coerces her and the part where he continues after she has used her safeword and acts like a fucking creep whenever they aren’t having sex
it is the worst possible introduction to BDSM i could imagine
i know my shit okay

im hoping the people defending this book are 1. never getting into BDSM 2. not currently into BDSM 3. havent read the book bc i dont want to believe anyone is that fucking stupid

Let me
just
fucking
drop
some fucking
knowledge on you right now.
Wanna know the BDSM mantra? Safe, sane, consensual.
So let me explain why this book was devoid of all three of these things.
Safe - In the first few chapters of the novel, Christian Grey tracks Ana’s cell phone to find her at a club. Takes her home when she’s drunk, changes her when she’s so intoxicated she doesn’t remember him doing so,and informs her he will be keeping tabs on her for her own benefit. This is not the behaviour of a respectable Dominant. This is the behaviour of a power hungry, abusive asshole who really can’t take no for an answer.
Sane - One of the most important parts of BDSM is aftercare. Scenes can be extremely traumatizing and intense for the submissive. Aftercare is anything from petting to cuddling to holding to sweet talking, whatever degree of gentleness a bottom would need to pull them out of “subspace”. How does Christian provide aftercare? He submits Ana to a traumatizing first time spanking experience AND THEN FUCKING LEAVES. AND GETS MAD THAT SHE DIDN’T TELL HIM SHE WAS UPSET. He’s the one who should fucking know better! That, again, is not the act of a responsible Dominant. It’s the act of a selfish abuser.
Consensual - Did I mention he undressed her when she was belligerently drunk? Tracked her phone to locate her? He also buys her a new car despite her saying no countless times. Now, consent is important for any kind of sexual activity at all. Consent means informed, consent means enthusiastic. Informed, enthusiastic consent. This is crucial in a BDSM setting. Scenes can be extremely intense, especially for the bottom. What is Christian’s form of obtaining consent? Handing Ana a fucking contract highlighting all the things he wants to do her asshole and asking her to sign it. She was a virgin (Don’t even get me fucking started.) who had never before been exposed to BDSM. Entering in that kind of relationship takes a gargantuan amount of trust and knowledge so you know exactly what you’re getting into. Not reading a list of kinks on a piece of paper and signing your rights to say no away. Christian didn’t offer her resources, he didn’t offer her information. He gave her an ultimatum. That is not the sort of consent a responsible Dom/me would seek from their submissive.
Fuck. This. book. It’s written in a shitty way, it’s a terrible example of a BDSM relationship (ask anybody already involved in the lifestyle and watch them go blue in the face just thinking about it), which is already faced with enough prejudice and misunderstand, and it romanticizes and glorifies abuse.

And this post is going into my bookmarks, because it is beautiful.

What scares me most is the fact that people, misinformed and ignorant people, will now try to enter the community/find play partners with the dangerous ideas of what BDSM is. They won’t respect a sub, they won’t listen.
And that can seriously hurt people. People can DIE.

ok. ok. even if this is true. they should censor book like “The Diary of a Young Girl" just because is about a bad thing.

i really do not get your post. i know most white people is racist. but i am not. because my parents teached me that all the people are the same, different, for appearance and thought, but the same. now what is racism? actually is defining a social group tagging them with adjectives on a base of superficial observation, just the thing you do. so stop it. is not fun. it is stupid.
