See that? Look at those sequence of panels and tell me that is anything less than than baller. If Stark or Wayne or Reed had done( and they probally have lets be real) some shit like this, you’d see posts for days with some shit like “CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THIS FOR A SECOND” 10k notes. 
But people wanna call T’Challa a Marty Stu
Fuck out my face. 

Wakanda has tech to make firearms useless..has had it for centuries. Let that shit sink in…let it marinate in your brain for a bit.

Black Excellence.

Go, T’Challa, go.

but also, like, contextually, let that sink in. the “Firearms supremacy” myth (I have my reasons for calling it a myth, but yes, there is a very real technical reality to weapons to supremacy, but that’s for another post) is one of the great narratives of colonization. "It’s ours because we outgunned them, fair and square" uh-huh, sure.So like, that tech is literally a refutation, especially since secrecy about just how advanced Wakandan science has gotten is a major theme.Just, y’know, had to throw that in there.

I am very much looking forward to the new Sailor Moon and after roaming tumblr was absolutely smitten with Marek Jarocki’s Armored Sailor Moon design.
I had a think about what Sailor Moon would be in a fantasy RPG and came to a Cleric as even though she has many items, one of them is the crescent moon healing wand.
Christ I’ve been animating for so long and not drawing that now I can’t just draw something, it MUST animate … NO EXCEPTIONS (… help me)
