Rage! Horror! Oh! Oh.. He was doing it not to troll everyone, but actually try to peacefully enlighten people's minds.

Good luck. I live in a city that considers itself a bastion of education and intelligence, and it LOST ITS FARKING MIND when someone dared to point out that not all terrorists are scary looking.

Before "9/11" if you'd asked me to describe a terrorist I probably would have described a freckly ginger person with a nailbomb. You'd think Boston, of all places, would appreciate the nuances of terrorism and the appearances of its perpetrators and supporters.

Can't wait to see him do Capt. Mohammed in Mecca with a shaved face and trusty dog at his side. You know, for the diversity. Bacon.

Because of so many who didn't know their religions, and gave Sikhs a hard time after 9/11.

Either shopped, or Instagram filtered all to hell.

As far as content, I'm cool with it.  I always like to see weird and different versions of superheroes.  Like that Indian Spiderman from a few years ago.  I thought that was pretty nifty.

Anyone who thinks Turban = Muslim = Terrorist is a moron who should be ignored with extreme prejudice.
 
2013-09-11 03:35:36 PM
"Why not?" I asked him. "I was born here. We could have a new Captain America who is Sikh or black or Hispanic."

I can envision some of my friends raging reaction to this, not because they are racists but because they are huge comic book nerds.

Thanks for the new wallpaper.

I couldn't help but be reminded of bad fan fiction writers when I read that statement.

Those are DC, Cap is Marvel.
But thanks for my new background.
 
2013-09-11 03:41:16 PM
Maybe it's just the brightness of the colors in his costume compared to the more normal colors of everyday life, or something, but it really does look photoshopped, especially the picture of him jumping out of the door of the fire truck. I'm not a photography expert and have never actually used photoshop, so maybe someone with more experience telling by the pixels can help out?

If it's a real story, it's awesome, and if it's not, then oh well, it would have been nice.

I think I figured it out. Those are bad HDR shots, and I thought HDR on its own was ugly. But yeah, the lighting kept messing with me too, but if you look, it's because what he's standing on is darker than he is. The shading is wrong. So my guess is she had lighting (not likely because they were mobile), she took several same shots as the sun moved (not likely for the same reason), or she used PS/camera settings.
