- (Billy has issues with his ‘r’s and ‘s’s. He has a lisp that he’s correcting.
- He may currently be wearing a hoodie, but it’s covering overalls. He’s already a little nudist.
- This is the only time you’ll see him being dirty. Crackers in his pockets. Ew.
- He’s a crybaby.)
ok peeps who know more about comics than i do
gimme some women who don’t fight but are still good, strong characters
I’m not exactly sure what you were looking for, but these are all women whose main aspects are not fighting or being a superhero, even though they’re occasionally involved in fights.
- LOIS LANE. She does occasionally fight, but not enough to be considered a vigilante or anything. Her main profession is reporting everything and being awesome. You can find the download links to the highlights of her appearances here.
- Mary Jane Watson. She’s only fought (physically) like twice and didn’t do it very well. Nevertheless, she’s a fighter. Things aren’t always easy in her life, but she stays strong and keeps moving on. I recommend getting Spider-Man/Mary Jane: …You Just Hit the Jackpot, which is a trade that collects a lot of the best MJ issues over the years.
- Gert Yorkes. Though she’s part of what is technically a superhero team, she has no powers (other than a psychic connection to her pet dinosaur) and is fairly useless in a fight. Her group ends up in more than a few scrapes, but she doesn’t really take part in the fighting. She’s fat, she’s cranky, she can be mean, she’s brilliant, and she cares a lot more about her team that she likes to let on. You can find her in Runaways, the first collected trade of which is Runaways: Pride & Joy.
- Venus. She has a magical ability to compel people with her singing voice, which definitely comes in handy in a fight, but she rarely does anything more physical. Her personality is very relaxed and carefree, though it’s clear she cares deeply about her teammates. Read about her in Agents of Atlas.
- Jane Foster. No powers, no kicking ass, but a fun character. I am, of course, talking about Thor: the Mighty Avengers version. It’s a fun, out-of-continuity mini-series that has a decent focus on Jane.
- Uhhhh, Pepper Potts is definitely this in the movies, but I don’t really know very much about in the comics, other than that she became a superhero for a while recently.
Brenda from Blue Beetle. And her aunt, La Dama! (Who runs some kind of gang/drug cartel? I can’t remember the details…) Jaime Reyes’s Mom, who kicked all kinds of evil bad guy ass with a giant MRI machine, Mrs. Reyes and his sister, Milagro (mini GL!), and Paco’s Mom. Basically all the women in BB are AWESOME.
Sue Dibney. I love her in I can’t believe it’s not the Justice League.
Tam Fox and Vicki Vale — assassins? No problem.
Also you do not fuck with Ellen Baker’s kids. She’ll come after you.
Plus there’s that time Helena Sandsmark punched Hercules.
And also Ma Kent, because while she doesn’t fight off bad guys, she helped bring up Clark to be the hero we all know and love with morals and values. That’s strength in her own way.
((DR. REBECCA KAPLAN.))
Four it is then.
… I… please don’t take this the wrong way but I hope it doesn’t come to that.
I hope it doesn’t either, and believe me there is no offense there. I actually meant that as I joke. *chuckles*
You’re very welcome. How many will you need?
Four will be more than enough.
If you ever decide you need a psychologist, all you have to do is ask.
I do have some tickets for some of the upcoming concerts, if you and your family would be interested, I’d gladly send some over.
I’d like that very much, thank you.
[smiles] Thank you. I’d like to think my hard work has paid off. It is very rewarding. Not in the same way your work must be but we all have our strengths.
Different things for different people. *smiles back* I’d like to hear you play sometime.
Really? That must be very interesting work.
I think I might be a little out of the ordinary on this, from what I’ve seen of the other versions. I’m a cellist with the New York Philharmonic. I was in Portland for a little while before that. [smiles]
It can be.
Oh, well that is different. But that’s also fantastic. You must be very talented.
You too. May I ask what you are a doctor of?
I’m a psychologist.
What do you do for a living Wanda? I’ve heard a few different things, so I’m guessing it changes.
Then you’re further along in all this than I am. [smiles] Alright, Rebecca. And please, call me Wanda.
It’s nice to meet you Wanda. *smiles back*
And you as well, Dr. Kaplan. I take it you’ve met other versions of me. I hope this isn’t too strange…
Several versions. I’m getting used to strange. And please, it’s Rebecca.
Miss Maximoff, lovely to meet you again.
withlove-wanda started following you
Of course Mom, I’m sorry for making you worry. I’ll tell you next time. I wasn’t thinking very clearly when I left the house.
Alright… Just stay safe.
I just uh..kindof had a fight with Teddy…and I just needed to get out. I’m 18 now mom, I can take care of myself…
Billy, I’m your mother, and I will always worry about you. If you need to go out that’s fine, but I would like some warning first….
I-I…just wanted to be out of the house…It’s kindof a long story…I’m fine Mom, I’m staying with a friend
William, you know I won’t take that as an answer…
anyone mind giving a worthless pile of crap a place to sleep?
Why aren’t you staying at home, and why do you feel like you’re worthless? What happened Billy?
I imagine so.
I do find it a bit funny…William once discussed introducing me to you and your husband some time ago. We decided against it, for reasons I think would be obvious. And now I’ve come introduce myself, and he has no idea that I’m here. I wonder if he would be disappointed. Or, perhaps, terrified.
More than likely mortified. I should mention it the next time I see him, any of them.
Well then, it’s VERY nice to meet you.
You’re quite welcome.
I suppose that explains why Wanda was so hesitant to speak with me.
Ah…There is no putting it simply, I suppose. But the answer is that it is both true and false. I have no doubt that you indeed birthed and raised William Kaplan. And, as I’ve said, you’ve done an excellent job. He has never, to my knowledge, disregarded you as his mother. And with what the usual reaction is to mutant children, I could not be more pleased to know you and your husband have continued to provide a stable, caring home for him.
However there have been…indications that his origins reach further back than his physical conception. Thomas, too, is my grandson for the same reasons.
The complexity is fairly exasperating to process.
That…. Explains a few things. Thank you for telling me.
Good to know. I am certain, if you asked him, William would be willing to answer any questions you might have. Though, as a warning, you might want to be seated with a stiff drink before he attempts such a thing.
But, to remove some of the shock factor from whatever his answers may be, I don’t believe it would be a crime to properly introduce myself. You had no reaction to my name, which I am grateful enough for, but I’d prefer you didn’t discover the other side of that coin on Google.
So, simply for future reference, I am Magneto.
*stands silently for a moment* One already mentioned you, tried to inform me that I was not his real mother, and that you were his grandfather.
I see. I’m not entirely sure I have the authority to disclose more information, honestly.
I am certain you understand confidentiality, Doctor Kaplan.
Of course I do. Now I’m sure you can tell me who could inform me, and I have a nagging feeling it’s one of my boys.
It’s always a comfort to know, isn’t it?
Ah, well, I suppose that depends. I’m afraid I’m not entirely familiar with what you know, aside from your son’s affiliation with the Avengers.
That’s about all I know, but I would like to know more.
I suppose in your profession, it must be a bit of a requirement. And as a parent, it is always a plus.
I do indeed. Excellent young men, the lot of them. I must say, you’ve done an excellent job in raising your son.
Thank you very much, it’s nice to hear they’re good even when I’m not around.
But from the way you talk, and really the way a lot of people have been talking, I feel like I may have missed something important.
I pride myself on knowing what I need to, madam. But I do suggest gaining a high tolerance for surprise, especially here.
Your boy, actually. William has spoken of you before. I suppose it was only a matter of time before we met.
I suppose I have a higher tolerance for it than most. I’m just used to surprises from my boys. It’s also surprising for someone to know me.
Oh, you know Billy? I take it you know Tommy and Teddy too then.
Yeah? I’m sorry, I wish you had time to take a break…
It comes with the job sweety. I expected this much being a psychologist.
Yes, I know who you are.
Erik Lehnsherr. A pleasure to meet you, Doctor Kaplan.
You know who I am? I suppose at this point I shouldn’t be surprised Mr. Lehnsherr. It’s still very nice to meet you.
So how do you know who I am?
I’ve been really well Mrs. Kaplan, How have you been?
Living, busy apparently. Whoof…..
Hi Mrs Kaplan, Its great to see you as well..
It’s been a while since I’ve seen you, how have you been?
Mrs. K… I… appreciate the thought, but it’s really not necessary.. I don’t want to be a.. home boy..
Fine, fine, but you are still one of my boys.
So how has life been to you Tommy?
Er.. yeah.. definite…ly..
I know, it’s intimidating Tommy. That’s alright, I love you anyway. You’re one of my home boys.
Or because you’re a psychologist? hehe Love you mom!
I love you too.
I know I’m really cool.
Of course not Mom, I’d never lie to you. You’d be able to tell if I was!
It’s because I know my children honey.
-stares not sure what to say-
Uh… thank.. you?
And I’m a cool mom. *pats him on the shoulder*
..Yeah. Thanks, Mrs. K.. If I ever need something, I’ll be sure to ask.
Good, and if you don’t, I’ll help anyway, whether you like it or not.
It’s how mom’s roll.
Oh.. I’ve just.. been sleeping a lot. It’s nothing to worry about.
Of course I’m going to worry about you. I am a mother after all. You do know if you need anything you can ask, right?
Teddy. It’s good to see you!
Hello, I’m Dr. Rebecca Kaplan… Can I help you sir?
Uh.. Hey, Mrs. K… I’m peachy…
That’s good to hear… Have you been eating well? You seem thin.
Ermm, of course! I didn’t have too much to do tonight.
Good, and I hope you aren’t fibbing about it either. *hugs him* My, you’re getting big.
Billy, have you finished your homework?
Tommy, it’s good to see you. How are you?
Not really. I’m… not his real mother.
Yes, well… I suppose join the club Wanda. *sighs and shakes her head*
His other mother?
It’s a rather long story, and he didn’t explain it very well. Perhaps you have some better clarification?
Another Wanda…. You’re the third I’ve met so far.
Reaching into his pocket, he pulled out a paper from SHIELD. It had all his information on it that she would need. “Anything else, Ma’am?”
She looked it over, before grabbing her small planner. ”Just let me find you a good time for an appointment.”
