Trump has sent a cease and desist because he hates it so much. The truth hurts, hon!
Dr. Ari Greenwald, an emergency medicine doctor in Toronto, recorded this warning for members of his community who have not being following orders to #staythefuckhome. His message from the frontlines is very sobering. Make sure your family/parents/grandparents are practicing self-isolation right now.
The New Warriors line-up was announced via YouTube trailer yesterday, introducing us to new characters including Screentime, Trailblazer, B-Negative, and twins Snowflake and Safespace.
Yeah…Snowflake and Safespace.
Safespace is described as a “stereotypical jock,” but with pink hair and a pink costume. His power is creating force fields, but it’s only able to be activated if he’s protecting another person.
His twin, Snowflake, is non-binary, and their more proactive power allows them to create crystallized snowflake-shaped shurikens.
Writer Daniel Kibblesmith explained the thought process behind the new character names, saying that they’re about “teens fighting against labels that have been put on them.”
“It’s the idea that these are terms that get thrown around on the internet that they don’t see as derogatory to take those words and kind of wear them as badges of honor.”
As you can imagine, members of the LGBTQ community and allies aren’t really into this attempt for representation, finding it to be a bit counter-productive. Check out some of the reactions and the first official trailer for the series after the jump!
