Think About It.™

When you Think About It.™ aren't The Avengers the modern
equivalent of Homer (Greek fantasy guy, like GRRM with more
Gay Subtext)

I challenge you to. Think About It.™

related to American comic books

im sure there are some great permutations to be told, but
nothing really that passes the Hollywood filter, if its too
complicated for a 5 year old to understand it doesn't get
made usually

I've been reading Ovid's " Metamorphoses" and there's a lot
of men becoming women and vice versa and it was written
about 40Ad and so when millennials think they're being
trendy changing gender I say to them that the whole thing is
as old as the hills and maybe they're not so shocking as
they think they are. Hello, is that the Women's Health
Centre? I wonder if you can help me, you see my balls
really hurt
. You don't suprise me, I read something like
that in a Penguin Classic, the nice old ones with the black
spines. That's how old. Think about it ™

haha exactly! and they always do it like this:

At least for anything with a blockbuster budget.

Well, I'm reading The Lay of the Nibelungs right now.
And it's very similar to a blockbuster-movie. Icelandic
princesses that beat up Teutonic kings, muscular men in
shiny red armor, rape-scenes. So yes, The Avengers is
probably like Homer even though I don't know the plot of the
Avengers.

I think Tolkien cribbed a lot from Germanic mythology, I
believe Tolkien is actually a german name as well

mine

I guess lord of the rings then is Germanic/norse
mythological traditions filtered through the British
landscape and culture, especially the Shire representing
rural England

What I'd like to know is why society only allows us to
specify our third person pronouns, when it's the first and
second person pronouns that really matter. I mean it's
pretty shitty when some asshole is using the wrong pronouns
behind my back, but it's 100 times worse when he does it to
my face. And my own use of the wrong first person pronouns
could point to some serious inner conflict

He's known for downplaying differences between myths, and
cherry-picking the bits that suit his opinions. Like if you
said spaghetti and sushi were both a type of sandwich. You
got yer starch, meat, vegetables. The hero food's journey
through the stomach.

ah yeah ok, so he is saying all monomyths are from the same
origin, but in reality they are quite different

His monomyth theory is a bed of Procrustes and any story can be
made to fit if you're willing to mutilate it enough, tie it
in knots, cut the tits off, etc.

man on a bed and cutting his feet off
