Misty Knight Hero For Hire by Fastfood

stevesnotepad:

↳Women of Marvel (3/10): Mercedes “Misty” Knight

Powers and Abilities: Superhuman strength and a bionic right arm. Misty is also extremely skilled at martial arts.

Background: Misty was an NYPD police officer until she lost her arm while preventing a bomb attack. Her bionic arm, given to her by Tony Stark, also gave her superhuman strength. Misty went on to start her own detective agency with her best friend Colleen Wing, often teaming up with Heroes for Hire, led by Luke Cage and Danny Rand. Misty later runs Heroes for Hire herself.

Why you should love her: Misty is incredibly skilled and dedicated to her job, and is also gifted at leadership and organizing operations (which she always does with both snark and style). She has many close and important relationships in her life, especially Colleen, Danny, and Luke, and the importance of those relationships to her is one of my favorite parts of her character.

Where you should read about her: 

  • Power Man and Iron Fist
  • Heroes for Hire
  • Daughters of the Dragon
  • Fearless Defenders

Since shin splints can happen when your calf muscles become stronger than the shin muscles, one way to prevent shin splints in the first place is to do some strengthening exercises. Heel walks are beneficial, but here’s a simple move you can do while at your desk.
Sit on a chair that’s tall enough to allow your toes to point without touching the floor.
Place a two- to six-pound dumbbell vertically in between your feet, squeezing the weight gently to keep it in place.
Begin by pointing your toes toward the floor. Then flex your feet and lift your toes as high as you can. This is one repetition.
Complete three sets of 12 reps, stretching your shins with the Reclining Hero in between each set.


This is true and helpful. Read up guys!

Interesting…

These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.

;________________;

Isador & Ida Straus
The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.
When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.
A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

why wasn’t the movie about them

Black girls don’t get told we are beautiful enough. Black girls aren’t always told we can be princesses. Cute, sweet, innocent, pure- these are not words black girls often hear associated with us. Fast, sassy, mouthy, too grown, angry, aggressive- those are the words that get shot at us like darts. Black girls are not girls- we are mini women who are forced to be strong. You must tell black girls they are beautiful, innocent, sweet, magical. You must treat black girls as girls. Then, you can talk about black girl characters whose looks and femininity doesn’t matter. Otherwise, you are just maintaining the status quo- denying black girls our beauty and femininity.

A few weeks ago I was leaving church and a woman comes up to me and says “I love your hair, I wish my husband would allow me to wear my hair like that.” I thanked her for the compliment but then I digested what she said. It is not the first time I have heard woman talk of how their husbands or…
