YOUNG AVENGERS CHARACTER INTRODUCTIONS (8/9)
THOMAS “TOMMY” SHEPHERD
POWERS AND ABILITIES
Speed is a mutant who possesses the power of supersonic speed, which also enables him to become intangible and as well as the ability of molecular destabilization. He also has superhuman strength, agility, durability, and reflexes.
Tommy Shepherd was born in New Jersey to Frank and Mary Shepherd, who divorced while he was still young. He has spent most of his life in and out of juvenile halls. Due to “accidentally” vaporizing his high school with his powers, he was placed in a high-powered facility.
After Hulking was captured, the Young Avengers used the Avengers Fail-Safe Program to locate reinforcements to help them free Billy, and tracked down Tommy. They released him and he joined the team.

Avengers: the Children’s Crusade #9
WHOA I never noticed this panel of scott and kate before? god this actually makes me unbearably sad like holy shit his daughter and her
girlfriendbest friend just got murdered and yet here he is with the avengers welcoming her into the fold with support and encouragement.
and obviously kate would’ve heard a billion stories about scott from cassie, kate’s probably the one who knew better than anyone what it meant to cassie to have scott back for that short while, and in catching scott up on her life cassie would’ve talked about kate more than anyone, about the other girl on the team, the one with no superpowers, just a bow and arrow and a quiver full of sass, a role model if ever there was one, and scott would know how kate protected cassie from the very beginning, how she was there for his daughter at a time when he couldn’t be.
wow you know what I can’t handle this at all
I’ve reblogged this a lot lately but no fucks are given because those comments are new.
Tommy Tommy Tommy
I had a dream that Tommy ended up in Wolverine and the X-Men to finish his GED and ended up becoming a permanent fixture there. Here’s hoping that besides YA.2 #6 Tommy will be added to a team!
Can I just tell y’all how NOT SYMPATHETIC I feel towards comics!Clint right now? Dude, you fucked up in ways that make so little sense in my head I cannot even. I can only hope that there is SERIOUS grovelling in your future.
Clint has never been…
“The Lady Darcy submits to the will of no man,” Thor said with a grin. “Tis a foolish soul who would even make an attempt to-”
-The Best of Life and Asgard, scifigrl47 (x)
Yeah, I love Darcy. I love that the movies allows Darcy to exist. I love that she’s someone who’s there to support the main female character and she is this FORCE, this gleeful creature who doesn’t flinch from any of this weirdness, who has her own style, even sitting in an abandoned gas station in the middle of the goddamn desert. I love that she takes all of this in stride, that she doesn’t melt down and she doesn’t fight Jane over Thor, that she snaps to work in an emergency, and does her best to support her boss/friend at all times.
I love the thought of her on that roof, side by side with Jane, pop tarts and iPod and stupid fandom jokes included. I love that she tasers Thor, and doesn’t feel any guilt or get slapped down for it by the script. He was big, he was threatening, he was obviously irrational, and she protected herself and her friends, and that was her choice, and she sticks by it.
I love that Darcy IS. I love that she’s there, not as a love interest or someone to ‘steal’ Thor or mock Jane or create conflict. I love that she’s truly a friend. And the narrative doesn’t mock her for it. Every “Mary Sue” accusation I’ve gotten in this fandom has been for my writing of Darcy, and it’s funny to me. My actual OCs never get that accusation, but Darcy, with her honesty, and her moxie, and her loyalty and her utter owning of her life and her body and her sexuality?
Somehow, she’s the character that’s ’wrong’ for the narrative, that breaks the fourth wall with her awesome. And you know what? I’m fine with that. Viva la Darce. 8)
