Oh, Loki. They don’t trust you for some reason…
Isn’t life so hard for a body-thief and a murderer?

  • hydra merchandising is not cool
  • death eater merchandising is not cool
  • the harry potter fandom embracing death eater imagery is not cool
  • the mcu cast and marvel staff embracing hydra imagery is not cool 

impressionable children who don’t know better are being sold the images and logos of fictional extremist hate movements that are very clear metaphors for real extremist hate movements as something innocent and attractive, and that is not cool

Well, being one of the kids who’s sick of the heroes always winning in kid’s movies (which is quite unrealistic considering the real world) I actually very much like villains. They’re never given the upper hand.
Just because I like them, though, doesn’t mean I agree with them. Neither do other kids. Besides, the death eater symbol is pretty cool. So are hydras.

there is a very clear difference between ‘appreciating villains’ and ‘rooting for genocide’. specially in the case of hydra, which is not a metaphor for nazism but a (fictional) branch of the actual, real world first nazi movement. you can make excuses for death eaters (a well written villain doesn’t justify that the industry around the harry potter series glamorizes purist ideals and sells them to young children; but whatever), but there is no ‘metaphor’ in hydra. hydra is a nazi movement.

appreciating the hydra agents as well written antagonists is cool, wanting to explore the possibility of aus where hydra wins because dystopia is an important genre in social commentary is super cool; but apologizing for, defending or even rooting for hydra, and adopting their imagery is literally rooting for a nazi movement. there is not much to argue there.

but it doesn’t have to do with you or me individually agreeing with racial purity ideals, but with the fact that the industry sells racial purists and neo zasis as likeable and redeemable villains, or even ‘anti heroes’. see: the maos head writer calling himself and ‘hydra agent’ and then saying that grant ward’s actions don’t make him a villain.

Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Sáenz (2012)

“I wondered what that was like, to hold someone’s hand. I bet you could sometimes find all of the mysteries of the universe in someone’s hand.”

"It was so daunting with all the cameras around [when I first started filming], and I didn’t realise that people would get you what you wanted – I’d ask, ‘Please may I go and get a bottle of water,’ and they’d go, ‘No, I’ll get it for you,’ and that was very strange. It’s normal now – but I still get my own bottles of water!"
