Disney has trademarked the names of a bunch of Norse gods.
This is not okay.
These gods do not belong to Disney. They do not belong to Marvel. They belong to themselves and themselves alone, along with all those who worship them as the deities they are.
Thor, Loki, Odin, etc., these gods were not thought up by anyone at Disney or Marvel.
Stan Lee knew how sacred these gods are to those who follow many different Pagan traditions, how sacred they are to Scandinavian cultures to whom they are so important.
My best friend follows the Norse gods. She will be so bloody offended when she finds out about this. These are her gods, this is her religion. These are the deities she worships, the gods she prays to, the traditions she follows. She enjoys the Marvel portrayals of these characters, but they are separate from the gods she believes in.
Disney is stepping on her religion in an effort to gain more and more money.
Stan Lee did not trademark these names. He understood their importance and their sacred meaning. He was respectful enough not to do this.
These names are not the intellectual property of anyone. Neither the original names in runes nor the anglicised names that are used in Marvel's works.
They were around well before us (a whole ass millennium before us), and they will be around well after the greedy bastards who have decided to trademark religious symbols are dust.
It should be common sense and common courtesy not to trademark the names of religious figures, which all of these gods and goddesses are, even if you do not believe in them.
mod is not christian but you would never see me trademark jesus ffs it crosses a Line

It is f**king disgusting that Disney is doing this.
It needs to stop.
Oh, and one more thing.

Like IDK maybe, just maybe, DC should more worried about the antisemitic jokes and stereotypes they insert into the Harley Quinn tv show than Batman's intimate life with Catwoman. Because, they're allowing fascists in the fandom then.
am i the only one who thinks the whole one timeline bs is a lie and the tva are hiding something.
like there are multiple of the same stones which means they must come from a different reality since in the mcu timeline they still have them. there also chasing a loki which wouldn’t be possible unless there are multiple timelines.
Marvel League - Team Cap vs Team Iron Man - (2021)
Vintage baseball trading cards inspired by the legendary 2016 “Team Cap Vs Team Iron Man” fight (and also by the latest campaign of a famous US clothing brand ^^) Note: I chose the numbers on the shirts at random, except for some characters: it’s their birthday.
Everyone’s saying that he doesn’t realize Gina has feelings… but he totally does. Like there is no other explanation of him acting the way he does around her. Shushing her when Nini called, clearly not wanting her to know that Gina was there. Avoiding talking to her about Nini and the text he wanted to send her, clearly uncomfortable talking with Gina about her. If it were ANYONE else he wouldn’t be so… weird? about it. And this just proves that he has feelings for her and he is trying to push those away, anytime he is around Gina it’s like he has to be snapped out of their convos, glances, longing stares, whatever the case and be brought back to reality. One where he has a girlfriend, but is also feeling emotions towards someone else that isn’t Nini, and it scares him because change was and is never his forte. And that is what Gina represents in his life. While Nini is a representation of the exact opposite.
