This true?

Kid's like to see themselves in comic characters? Yeah.
>>
>Hawkeye's just like you!
That is the cheesiest shit, and if someone told me that as a kid I'd probably be more pissed that someone just lumped me in and stereotyped me and also assumed I'd like a character just because of some superficial similarity. Like assuming someone has to like Daredevil or She-Hulk the best because they're interested in law. Stupid.

Hawkeye's deafness?

It was true for awhile, got cured/retconned, and I think it's back in now, so depends on the era/issue.

It's true that Hawkeye uses a hearing aid, it's not true that the story happened.

always interesting to me to have characters with three dimensional "human" limitations/ issues addiction, mental/physical disability, or monetary issues. it doesn't have to happen all the time and it doesn't have to be central to their character. Almost cooler when it's a minor part of their character.

Yay.

Chemist here. I can sympathize.

That said if I were a little deaf kid in love with the Avengers, I'd be stoked to find out that Hawkeye had hearing aids like me.

It's just one of those big differences between excitable little kids and adults.
>>

I stopped following Hawkguy (stupid I know but I developed a life and had to drop everything apart from Avengers pretty much). What's the story with Haweye now being deaf?

>>71216375
It's not interesting to me because it hardly ever feels like an actual part of their character and it's pretty much never written by someone with firsthand experience with such a disability. Consider how Daredevil may as well just be colorblind most of the time given his superpower. Or how Hawkeye just has magical Stark-made hearing aids that completely negate his deafness. Or how N52 Barbara Gordon had magical superscience surgery to make her all better after being paralyzed and can now do flips and shit again instead of showing an actual recovery process.

Personally, for me it's more cringeworthy along the lines of when you watch an episode of Law & Order episode about "hacking." If you can't make it believable and sincere, don't do it.
>>
>>71216387
A tv show? For a blind person? Why would you do that to her?
Its like sitting through random noise you can never get or feel entertained about.

I remember when my dad told me Batman read alot of books, so one Christmas I asked for an encyclopedia.

Blind people watch tv shows on their own sometimes, you guys.
Also do you guys not have friends? Sometimes people just spend time with each other even if one person isn't exactly interested in the activity. I have listened to A LOT of her sci-fi audio books.
>>
>>71216488
>now being deaf
He's been deaf for a long time, but writers didn't feel like incorporating it into the writing so they just kinda wrote it off and ignored it. Then Fraction's series dredged up that part of his character and it's been a more central part of his characterization again. Lemire's run just started (two issues in) and it's already part of the current storyline.

>Not absorbing them
>>
>>71215992
well...yes
when theres a superhero who's similar to you and has one of your disadvantages you're more likely feel...proud i guess
this why they think diversity is important, that moment of happens when there is a character out there like you despite whatever you have being looked down upon
this is why my brother absolutely loves ms marvel...because she's a muslim

To be fair, if you were to be Batman your parents would be shot.

Which is probably what actually happened.

Or the whole thing was just made up and pulled out of that tumblrina's 400 pound ass, which is the most likely scenario.

For some things, not really. I grew up (female) reading and watching a lot of media with male protagonists, and I didn't care one way or the other. Somethings are universal regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, whatever.

But for a kid who probably already feels isolated and picked on for a disability like that? Yeah, knowing that there's someone out there who deals with the same experience you do can be really powerful. I know when I first fell hard into anxiety and depression problems in college, the one thing that helped me the most through it was finding out that my dad, who has always been my role model, has suffered from the same thing without me knowing about it..

tl;dr, it's not about collecting tokens, it's about representing a wide variety of experiences that people can share in.

of course we do see way to much of it written poorly. That's a legitimate complaint . I feel like if it can be done right it's better to have a cast with some things like that. It doesn't always have to be a disability, could be some abuse or other factors. writers oftentimes make it the central focus so there's no room for real character left. Seeing it done by shit writers makes me not want them to try.
shit is so fucking tired.

Yeah, to an extent.

As a blackanon, there weren't many black superheroes out in the public eye. So I just kinda assumed we were just sidekicks or comic relief. My exposure to the shit was limited; the heroes were the ones full-front and center, the guys on the covers.

It can go a long way, however cheesy, to making some folks feel more comfortable with who they are. Granted, I'm fine as an adult, but looking back, the way I felt and thought as a kid was kind of fucked up

I drive a taxi, and during the day I get a lot of blind people. Obvious when you think about it. Picked up a regular named Tony yesterday, got to talking about tv and I mentioned I just finished Daredevil. He said he hadn't seen it yet but would be checking it out, because when the movie came out he got laid way more because of it. Hoping for a repeat performance.

Here's to you Tony. Hit it.
