Also one last thing before I trundle off to bed

As far as I’ve seen, it’s a universal sentiment that the way they examined Tony Stark’s PTSD in IM3 is pretty much perfect. And I can’t really speak to that, because I haven’t seen that movie. But that’s what I’ve been told.

And from what I understand, they show him suffering from insomnia and excessive reaction to stimuli and other things like that. Which again, is good and generally what we understand PTSD to look like.

One of the things I liked about Captain America: The Winter Soldier was that while it didn’t really spend a lot of time on Steve Rogers mental health, there are subtle hints that something is off and he’s not doing very well. (With very good reason. He’s a WWII vet, he suffered extreme trauma with the plane crash and subsequent freezing, and then not long after they found him there was the whole Loki thing and attack on New York.)

And it’s not as immediately obvious as it is with Tony that something is off. It’s smaller things. He doesn’t go out. He doesn’t have friends outside of work. We’re shown no indication that he’s continuing with his art. He’s keeping it together for his job but I think he’s actually really depressed when the movie starts. 

And by the end… it’s probably not that much better, tbh. Battle isn’t actually a good form of therapy. But he has friends now. Natasha and Sam. The ones who noticed how bad he was struggling and reached out before he even knew how to ask for help.

If you’re not watching Sirens on Thursday nights at 10pm on USA, then you’re missing out. Not only is it one of the funniest shows out there right now — being that it’s co-created and executive produced by Denis Leary — but it’s also highly inclusive.

It centers on a team of Chicago EMTs, and focuses on the odd partnership of three men, Brian, who is the new guy, Johnny, a guy with a slow developing emotional range, and Hank, an African-American homosexual who defies all stereotypes the rest of popular media inflicts upon gay men. Their team is fleshed out in Cash, Voodoo, and Stats. And last night’s episode showed that Voodoo is asexual.

It took Brian from confusion and denail, to attempts to understand, and eventually wrapped it all around in a bow of acceptance. Brian went from the ideology that asexuals “just haven’t had proper sex,” to wanting to understand what asexual means — and failing — and finally all the way to realizing that sex isn’t what defines relationships, and that just being around Voodoo is enough for him.

Do yourselves a favor, and catch up on the episodes, and start tuning in Thursdays at 10.

I’m going to have to talk about Natasha first, because apparently all of my meta is about being Russian.

I’ve seen people complaining about it, but Natasha being from the post-Soviet era is fucking brilliant. I don’t care that it’s different from the comics. Obviously, part of the reasoning for this comes from my own lived experience as a Ukrainian immigrant in the United States — I can’t tell you how weary I am of how many Russian women in American media are Cold War-spy eye-candy, and Natasha being removed from that is incredibly important. But it’s not just that. The post-Soviet origin story fits Natasha’s MCU characterization so much better. 

This Natasha watched an empire crumble when she was a child. She was born into a time of decline and economic scarcity — stores with empty shelves and a government struggling to keep it all together, watching republics slip through their fingers. There were endless waiting lists for everything useful — it was a normal part of my childhood that I was not able to call my best friend unless she was at her grandmother’s place. Her building had not yet had phone lines installed. When I’d ask my parents when her apartment was going have a phone, my parents would scoff, “They’re on a list.”
