Hello everyone and welcome to the latest episode of Brain Food, wherein I discuss the latest series from Marvel written by G Willow Wilson, Ms Marvel!
And wouldn’t you know it? It’s a top seller at
Comixology, actually beating out one Batman title as of the time of the release of its 4th issue!
Not bad for a new legacy character.

Hello everyone and welcome to the newest episode of Brain Food At The Movies! I hope that you all enjoy it!
Just… bloody hell, people… if you can have more diversity in your movie about a giant, radioactive mutant than a movie about some stupid little magic ring and dwarves and elves, something’s wrong.
Also, I’m not seeing Blended. I don’t think I need to watch a comedy about white people healing their souls by going to Africa… and not just any country in Africa, but, you know… just Africa.
Blond-haired, blue-eyed white woman who is stronger, smarter, faster than everybody else? Check.
Nameless, disposable Asians? Check.
Now watch all the white feminists drool over themselves about how she’s a Strong Female Character (TM) and not some white supremacist fantasy.
Hello everyone, and in this video I discuss my concerns about DC Comics’ newest character, the Canadian Cree teen superheroine, Equinox.
My main concern boils down to DC Comics’ past racial failures, so anything like this just makes me awfully damned cautious.
For added context, here is an
article from the CBC talking about Equinox.
Hello everyone and welcome to another video on white privilege and fandom that I all hope you enjoy. This is only a little bit of what happens in fandom but it’s indicative of what happens on an almost daily occasion, especially when it comes to characters who are from a marginal class, such as being a POC, LGBTQ, disabled, or intersect across them all.
For additional reading, here is the link to the wonderful takedown of Michelle Coltee by Melissa Harris Perry that I mention near the beginning of the video:
Michelle Obama A ‘Feminist Nightmare?’ Please.

Miranda Mercury website and check out the latest news from the writers!
Hello everyone and welcome to Brain Food, At The Movies, wherein I review Vin Diesel’s latest masterpiece, RIDDICK.
Personally, I would have labelled it RIDDICK: ALPHA MALE McSTABBY ALOTS!
Got 20 minutes? Watch this shit now!
Did you watch it? Good.
How much you wanna guarantee that your average Hollywood movie would not have ended like that?

Hello everyone, and welcome to the third installment of Brain Food At The Movies, wherein I talk about Star Trek – Into Darkness!
It’s easily one of the most shallow, pandering, lazy pieces of writing slapped on screen that I’ve ever seen, and includes an unfortunate amount of whitewashing in replacing the character of Khan with a white guy, Super Benederp Cucumbatch, when he had been Indian in the original series and played by the most excellent Ricardo Montalban.
