as-howarth said: Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?
I guess I am both happy and sad.
I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.
But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.
THE SUPREME AVENGERS
Following the dissolution of the orignal Avengers team, Director of SHIELD, Nick Fury set off to find the next generation of heroes. He roamed across the country and located and recruited ten superheroes to help assist with peacekeeping of the world. With the newly appointed Captain America, Sam Wilson, and Pulsar, Monica Rambeau, the new team has banded together to help the good fight!
Hey look everyone! I finished my redesign of the Avengers! This was a lot of fun and I decided to redraw them for this group pose! Again, like with my Young Justice reboot, I made sure to include characters I thought deserved some spotlight! Especially minority characters and women! Because it’s about damn time we use these amazing characters!
The roster includes:
Sam Wilson as Captain America
Monica Rambeau as Pulsar
Shang-Chi as Iron Fist
Donna Blake as Thor
Agent Jimmy Wu
Wanda Maximoff as Sorceress Supreme Scarlet Witch
Jessica Drew as Spider-Woman
Jeni Takeda as Hazmat
and Miles Morales as Spider-Man!
