That One Time I Saw Chris Evans’ Back Sweat, and also, Neuroscience

drop-deaddream:

So a week or so ago when I was on the east coast, in a moment of extreme weakness, I went to see the Avengers exhibit at Times Square. It was awesome, I somehow charmed a really sweet employee — ahem, operative — into giving me their rad as hell SHIELD beret, I bought Ellen like sixteen souvenirs (okay, two) — but that is not what I’m here about. (Ask me about the Cap t-shirt I got. Please. Oh my god. Ask me.) 

What I’m here about is, unsurprisingly, the Captain America portion of exhibit.

The experience is immersive, all set up so you feel like you’re in SHIELD archives or the like. The Cap section includes the VitaRay (complete with a cameo by the salt stains from, you guessed it, Chris Evans’ back sweat), the rescuing-Bucky leather jacket, some seriously exclusive trading cards I Coulson’d all over, the Avengers uniform, and, endearingly, a section where you can test your strength against Steve’s. There’s also a little portion by the VitaRay that explains the changes Steve’s brain went through after they administered the serum. Being the massive bag of science trash that I am, this is where I spent most of my time.

The info graphic basically told me what we already know: that the serum enhances everything you had going for you before. So Steve’s brain is smarter and faster, the neurons have a longer life span, the hippocampus — that’s your memory storage — is nice and healthy; whatever. But then they said that the part of Steve’s brain that increased the most in mass and synaptogenesis was the amygdala. And I promptly lost all control over my feelings. 

Cut bc this is about to get really gnarly. It’s science time, kiddos.

“You have to surrender to your mediocrity, and just write. Because it’s hard, really hard, to write even a crappy book. But it’s better to write a book that kind of sucks rather than no book at all, as you wait around to magically become Faulkner. No one is going to write your book for you and you can’t write anybody’s book but your own.”

I remember watching the behind the scenes on this show. The creator of the show said that they got so much fan mail saying this show was the most realistic hospital show.

My parents both worked in the medical profession my whole life, and when I was watching them come home, I could see echoes of what this show did. All other medical shows were so much about the drama. This one nailed it. It nailed the good, the bad, and everything in between.

Also, I read that Scrubs was more medically accurate than House, Grey’s Anatomy, and every other medical show on TV

I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.

Fucking this. 

Fucking thank you.

Natasha: Do you know why I’m here?Laura: It is not to help these girls.  You are the spy, Black Widow, an Avenger.  The Avengers cannot stop slavery or help hurt girls.Natasha: Neither can the X-men.  But we try.

Just as a final meditation on today’s impromptu theme: one of the things Natasha’s had a special interest in throughout her superhero career is sex and child trafficking. Laura points out that this is an unusual preoccupation for an Avenger, and she’s right.  This is not the kind of thing that usually gets dressed up in capes and tights.  But Black Widow deals with this stuff semi-regularly, even, because she’s not a typical superhero and this is why she fights.

As much as her origin story has been muddled recently, it has, always, in every iteration, been wound around themes of control and liberation.  Natasha was once a loyal servant of lies and half-truths, a perfect agent who blinded herself to her conscience and her masters’ cruelties for the sake of being a perfect agent.  But she couldn’t let them tell her who and how (not) to love, and she broke free.  
There’s a gendered element to this, too.  The Red Room trains only women, the chemical treatments given to their best operatives drive men insane.  And so the men in charge of this whole twisted scenario christen their best agents after a spider that devours her mates, something that they fear, but also demean.  They sharpen these women so that they may be as tools, weapons, something manufactured and replaceable.  Not women at all.

(Natasha knows she is one-of a kind, unique, and is therefore unstoppable.)

So her career in espionage gave her ability and paranoid edges, but it also commodified her.  This is the basic Marvel formula: power is the gift and the curse together.  And as a result, she has a special interest in keeping women from being manipulated, from having their bodies and their sexualities be treated as commodities or weapons, instead of tools of their own enjoyment.  Instead of bodies.

That’s why she tries to help rescue these trafficked girls but recognizes that their trauma isn’t something that can be fixed with punching.  It’s why she reaches out to Laura Kinney, who has been grown in a lab and taught to kill for other people, and offers to teach X-23 how to be useful on her own terms.

(It’s also the reason why I cringe sometimes to see her twisted around for easy ass shots, to see her uniform tweaked and modified so that we get a better view.  It’s like Ms. Deconnick says about Carol Danvers: It’s bizarre. There’s a part of me that’s like, “Why do you care?” And part of me that gets angry about it. That’s not what she’s about. Or at least, I don’t think it’s what she’s meant to be about.)

From X-23 #20, by Marjorie Liu and Phil Noto.

Since Laura Kinney is guest-starring in issue #11 of Black Widow, I thought I’d bring this back.
