positive lady characters meme | Martha Jones + powerful/feminist moment

I was 900% prepared for her to flip the bird for science in this scene like oh here’s the bones of the finger that I use to say ‘fuck you’

hey remember when we used to have companions who were actualized individuals and not just puzzles to be solved

Actually, considering the position in which her hand was placed in the last GIF, she did give her the finger. 

She is British, you know. 

Time Warner should buy Dreamworks Animation.
I’ve had this viewpoint for a long time, and even with news about a Japanese mobile service thinking about buying the company and realizing the odds are a bit slim, I believe it now more than ever.
In fact, I could pinpoint the very moment I wanted to see the two companies become one. Actually it was months before Dreamworks bought Classic Media. 
MetLife, of all people, crafted this commercial that featured numerous characters of all types. Hanna-Barbera characters, Looney Tunes characters, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Fat Albert, Peabody and Sherman, He-Man, Mr. Magoo, Richie Rich, Waldo, Casper, and so many characters interacting with one another. Striking image for a fan of the institution of Saturday morning cartoons like myself. 
Then I keep following Dreamwork Animation’s trail of acquisitions, from various British companies to AwesomenessTV as well as their films which have been improving over the years despite poor distribution by rival companies who manage their destiny.
And now Jeff Katzenberg wants to hold on to a little bit of power by selling his company to a phone company with so much money they don’t know what to do with it? That seems odd. And Time Warner’s head muckity-muck Jeff Bewkes would rather TWX become a small indie company rather than the world’s biggest entertainment company with one of the most diverse portfolios of films, television shows, and intellectual properties, which it is.
Some companies wish they could own a property as popular as Harry Potter, Batman, Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, Superman, The Lord of the Rings, The Powerpuff Girls, The Matrix, Family Matters, Full House, Dallas, Living Single, Friends, Austin Powers, ThunderCats, The Dukes of Hazzard, Wonder Woman, Happy Feet, Jonny Quest, The Polar Express, Tom and Jerry, Arrow, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe. The Wizard of Oz, The Venture Bros, True Detective, The Voice, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, The Bachelor, Pretty Little Liars, Mortal Kombat, and Scribblenauts, among others? Time Warner has them all.
You’d think they’d try to go for Dreamworks Animation, a quality animation house with a huge global presence, a large library of films and shows, and a massive IP library full of familiar characters aimed towards all ages.
But nah. Time Warner has been complacent for so long and only buys smaller companies. But at this point, Dreamworks Animation is medium-sized at best. Essentially, it’s slightly larger than Pixar content-wise. It’s pretty much a steal, which is why a phone company is spending so little to try to get it.
Why should Time Warner make a pitch for Dreamworks Animation? I’ll give you three reasons:
Warner Bros needs a theatrical animation unit. Yes, I’m aware of the Warner Animation Group (WAG), but they’re not really a theatrical animation unit. They’re a bunch of creative teams joining with outsourced studios to produce films. Dreamworks Animation wouldn’t necessarily supplant WAG, but it would be the de-facto Warner Bros Feature Animation division not in name but definitely in spirit. And upon acquisition of Dreamworks Animation, Warner Bros. could nullify the distribution contract with Fox and control their studio’s destiny almost immediately from here on out.
More intellectual properties under their banner. With Dreamworks Animation under the Time Warner banner, they also bring with them Dreamworks Classics, a huge library of intellectual properties that thrive in all mediums from comics to animation to live-action. DC Entertainment would, no doubt, welcome the comics divisions from Dreamworks Classics, which include Harvey Comics, Dell, and Gold Key.Iconic characters like The Lone Ranger, Lassie, Underdog, Mr. Magoo, Postman Pat, Noddy, Little Lulu, Casper, Richie Rich, and VeggieTales as well as management of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Voltron, Dick Tracy also come with a Dreamworks Animation acquisition, which could help bring new projects across the various units, particularly Cartoon Network, one of Time Warner’s most profitable unite with network groups all around the globe. Speaking of animation … 
The Rankin/Bass library would be 99% reunited. From a historical perspective, this is a pretty big deal. The post-1974 Rankin/Bass library of cartoons, which includes The Hobbit, ThunderCats, Silverhawks, and The Comic Strip is already owned by Time Warner. Dreamworks Classics owns the earlier half that was made between 1964 and 1974 including iconic holiday bellwethers like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Mad Monster Party? and The Last Unicorn are owned by other parties, but the Rankin/Bass library would be united for the first time in … ever. 
I know I’m a little obsessed with this, but Dreamworks Animation in the hands of Time Warner makes more sense than a phone company with no idea what they’re doing. 
But I digressed long enough.

chadbonin asked:

So, thoughts on this week's big big big-ish DC reveal at the end of SUPERMAN: DOOMED and throughout BOOSTER GOLD: FUTURE'S END?

The New 52 is cracking, and one of the biggest Superman villains may be involved? I am curious about what’s next. 

Was taken by seeing Blue Beetle’s first panel appearance in a DC comic in one of the cracks as well as Aquaman versus Wonder Woman in another. Those two scenes were from Crisis on Infinite Earths and Flashpoint respectively, the last two major universe redefining events of DC Comics. If what DC is planning next year is on par with those events, I wonder what’ll be the end result. 

Hopefully not another grim and gritty, darker version of the DC Universe. Injustice already covers that in droves.

Good News/Bad News Batman Fans

toonami:

Bad news: We JUST (like, hours ago) found out from our legal department that Beware the Batman and Sym-bionic Titan are being “written off,” financially, as of now. Therefore, after this weekend neither of those two shows will be a part of Toonami again, unfortunately. What’s the good news? Welp, because we hate to bone you Bat-fans by simply yanking the show, we’re running ALL of the remaining unaired episodes THIS weekend from 2:30a-6a, for one last Bat-blow out. FYI, Hellsing fans: that means we skip Hellsing this Saturday, but don’t worry- it will return next week at an earlier timeslot! Schedules for the next two weeks below:

Thanks, and sorry- these are the kinds of surprises we DON’T like! 

Love, The Toonami Crew.

Shame Beware The Batman had to go out like that. The series deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Batman: The Animated Series and Batman: The Brave and the Bold. A darker incarnation of the Batman mythos that dared to redefine who the character really is by giving him a rogues’ gallery the audience never associated him with. Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad? Magpie? Anarky? Humpty Dumpty? Tobias Whale? Cypher? Who needs another Joker or Penguin tale?

Still, sorry to see it become yet another casualty of the action cartoon purge that’s happening in the United States. Beware the Batman deserved much better, but the fans seemed to embrace it on Toonami. At least the fans who didn’t want the block to be an all-anime fest.

When the light breaks on September 29, the Batman is gone back into the darkness to be reborn yet again.

#THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wear a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor the the Time War but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to right his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.

Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.

He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.

Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.

Wow, that just summed up my feelings on where Doctor Who has gone better than anything else I’ve read. 

And the thing about Nine is that he still thinks he’s responsible for the destruction of Galifrey in the Time War when in fact, his previous incarnation (with the help of his Tenth and so-called Eleventh incarnation) created a plan to save it, and he would never know how he saved the day because for some reason, they can’t remember the events that happened that day (and just as the War Doctor left, he began his regeneration to Nine, who still believes he is the Last of the Time Lords and wracked with depression).

Man, they did Nine dirty.
