This is from Old Man Logan, one of my favorite Marvel AU/fractured future stories. It’s of a possible outcome of the Marvel universe, so not canon. And it is fucking brutal. One day all the villains unite. No more ego, no more hubris, just an army of supervillains, and they take out almost eeeveryone. Heroes are being slaughtered. No one saw it coming. But what do you do to take out an entire mansion full of mutants? A veritable farm of power and ability, made even more dangerous by they familial ties. They wouldn’t ever stop fighting to defend those that they love. And worst of all, you’d know that you need to take out the Wolverine. One of the most feared killers drawing breath on earth. Turns out all it took was one villain. Mysterio, the illusionist. It’s clever, really. Don’t kill the X-Men yourself. Let Wolverine do it. Make him believe he’s fighting to secure the safety of the younglings in the Academy. Make him believe the only thing standing between the children and their death would be him. Turn the animal on the house itself, and watch as people who love and respect Logan fight their own inhibitions about harming a family member. Watch as they hesitate, and it kills them. And when it’s all over?
All you need to do is rip away the illusion, and you’ve done it. You’ve beaten the Wolverine.

Many people know that women make 77 cents to the dollar compared to men. But did you know that African-American women make just 64 cents to the dollar, and Hispanic women make just 56 cents? One group offers an interesting way to fix this.
MMMKAY— there are two ways you can go about this. The quick and easy way is to make sugar cookies from a sugar cookie mix and just cut open a packet of chai tea and pour it into the batter as you make it. Cause you’re busy and you want making cookies to be a chill part of your day. Pow. Done.
If you want to make the cookies from scratch (that’s what I did for the 1989 Secret Sessions), you can use this recipe I found on a baking blog I like, joythebaker.com and I believe it was originally from a book called The Pastry Queen. If you want another great baking blog, I get a lot of great ideas from smittenkitchen.com too. This is a recipe for basic insanely good sugar cookies. I added the chai element to the recipe because I thought it would infuse cozy holiday vibez into the cookie and it really did. So I’ll star the part that I added in the recipe.
***after you add the egg and vanilla, cut one chai tea packet open and empty the crushed up tea leaves into the batter CAUSE CHAI COOKIES ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN UP IN HERE***
I made an icing for the cookies, but they’re fine on their own. If you want to make icing for them, just mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/4 T-spoon of nutmeg, 1/4 T-spoon of cinnamon and 3 TAYblespoons <—-(I’m so annoying, it astounds me sometimes) of milk or eggnog if you can find it this time of year. The more milk/eggnog you add, the more your icing will become a glaze. But glazes are legit too so basically just LIVE YOUR LIFE.
I lightly sprinkled cinnamon over the icing once the cookies were baked and iced, but there are so many icing options you can pair with these cookies—I mean it’s out of control. If you’re really feeling like living on the edge, you can go ahead and add a few drops of food coloring to the icing to make it festive. No one is going to stop you.
Cause the bakers gonna bake bake bake bake bake.

I’m reblogging this solely bc Taylor Fucking Swift just wrote a whole thing about cookies and ended it with a reference to her song.
