"I'm kind of done with you telling me what I can't do." Carol Danvers
Marvel Studio's first venture into a female fronted film was long overdue, but alas, we are here. Captain Marvel flies higher, further, and faster into the MCU, hinging on the formidable talent of star Brie Larson. It brings with it the hopes and dreams of female fans starving for more on screen heroes that look and talk like them. Does it succeed?
There probably aren't many things in life more unsettling than the thought of having a stalker. Not knowing where someone will show up, awkwardly positioning themselves within your personal space, teetering on the cusp of going full on unhinged at any perceived notion that you might not want such attention.

Steve has been writing moderately well on the Internet for over ten years. As a middle aged fan-boy, he acknowledges that his relevance in today's culture is barely recognized, but he continues to pretend people like him. Maybe you will too. Aficionado of 80's culture and guacamole. Mildly amused by pandas.
