Very pleased with how my son’s geektastic nursery turned out, so thought I’d make a post about it. When my partner and I first started planning it, we talked about doing a strict superhero theme. That changed during the process of picking the characters that we wanted to hang on the wall. We decided to go with characters we truly love, regardless of the fandom, rather than pick less-beloved characters just for the sake of fitting an artificially-created superhero theme. Thus, we ended up with fabulous drawings of Wonder Woman, the Ninth Doctor, Harry Potter, Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), and Mr. Spock, commissioned from artist Jenny Stead. Jenny did an awesome job, and I highly recommend anyone looking for custom art to hit her up when she has commissions available.
Despite the mix of fandoms, the centerpiece of the room obviously is still superheroic — specifically, the design from Captain Marvel’s new uniform splashed across an entire wall. I couldn’t be happier with how the mural turned out (if you’re in or around Atlanta and need a mural for your home or office, I can’t say enough great things about Mimi’s Murals), and love the Captain Marvel emblem for several reasons.
First, it’s just a really damn cool design. Major props to Jamie McKelvie for turning out yet another flawless character design/re-design (and one that looks fabulous blown up to a 8x15 foot canvas.)Second, Carol Danvers flat out rocks. I’ve only known Carol for a little while, starting with Kelly Sue DeConnick’s amazingly kickass Captain Marvel run, but in a brief period of time she’s managed to become one of my favorite characters ever. She’s everything a hero should be: brave, selfless, kind, and loyal — but with enough vulnerability and flaws to make her relatable and courageous and oh-so-very human. I just love her.
Third, I want my son to grow up knowing that he can, should, and will find women who deserve to be his heroes just as much as any man. Our society persists in sending a message that heroic women make acceptable role models for girls or other women, but not so much for boys or men. It’s bullshit and it needs to change. If creators keep making characters with the heroic spirit, emotional resonance, and all around badassedness of Carol Danvers, I am hopeful that one day it will.
AHHHHHHH!!! So GREAT!
