I’d rank this as one of Wanda’s top five most powerful single hexes - Avengers #237
And Steve is just internally screaming over how powerful she is.
But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

Guardians of the Galaxy is breaking box office records this weekend, but more importantly it’s breaking barriers in Hollywood by being the first Marvel script credited to a woman.
Guardians of the Galaxy is receiving remarkable reviews by critics and fans alike and is expected to take in over $90 million during its explosive opening weekend.
What’s more interesting is that Guardians of the Galaxy is the first Marvel film to have been written by a woman that’s actually received credit for their work.
Screenwriter Nicole Perlman has been on the rise for quite some time. She’s been included in up and coming screenwriter lists for years now and even did some work on Thor’s script, but she’s finally been given credit for being the screenwriter of Marvel’s latest film, which is being touted for its unique storyline.
In a recent interview with TIME magazine, Perlman explained her attempts to persuade studios to put their trust in a woman’s hands to write sci-fi, saying, “I was noticing that I was having trouble convincing people, when I was pitching on projects, that I would be capable of doing this. There was a little bit of an attitude of, ‘Well, you’re a woman, you’re not writing romantic comedies, we’ll give you the Marie Curie biopic.’”
Movie Studio: We need an agent or something for this scene. Let’s use that guy.
Fandom: Hey, who’s that guy? That guy is awesome! We love that guy!
Movie Studio: …what? Who? That guy? But he’s nobody. Wouldn’t you rather—
Movie Studio: But Tony Stark—
Movie Studio: Okay, well, I guess we could give him a name or something.
Fandom: WE LOVE AGENT COULSON!
Movie Studio: How the fuck—? Guys, come on. We gave you superheroes! Why are you hung up on Agent Coulson?
Fandom: Agent Coulson, Agent Coulson, Agent Coulson!
Movie Studio: God damn it, fine. Look, we’ll give him the most epic death scene in the series, okay? Would that make you happy?
Fandom: ~collective, blatant, epic refusal to acknowledge Coulson’s death~
Movie Studio: Jesus. Fine. Here, have a TV show.
So much this.
THANK GOD FOR WHO EVER MADE THIS.
This just became my solution to not caring
