A 7-piece Avengers Assemble sketchbook set I found at Target. What I like about this is that it’s one of very few Avengers Assemble products I’ve seen that takes its inspiration more from the Avengers Assemble comic than the TV show. I mean, I like merch for the Avengers Assemble cartoon, but it’s nice to see something different. Plus, even though it’s more comic-inspired, Falcon does still appear on at least one of the seven pieces.
I really need to learn how to control myself better. I began hyperventilating at Walmart. Over a fucking t-shirt. But, but, but, it’s a t-shirt that includes Black Widow and Fury! There aren’t many children’s shirts that include both a person of color and a woman.
These posters are super important. Firstly, there are solo posters for Black Widow and Falcon which is awesome in itself. But secondly, look who it is that the actual display focuses on:
You would think that a display of posters for Captain America: The Winter Soldier would focus on, well, Cap. But instead, it focuses on the lesser-known black superhero, the Falcon.
Please, please, please, if you can afford to, buy both the Black Widow and Falcon posters. There is so little solo merchandise for either character, and buying merch that has only these characters is so much more powerful than buying merch that has them alongside four or five white dudes.
I saw these posters at Michaels, but they’ll probably have them at Walmart, as well, and they’ll probably cost less there. I think it’s fantastic that Black Widow and Falcon are getting their own character posters for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
