While there is a level of “unrealism” in all comics, over the years they have come to physically portray women ridiculously.
● Why is The Hawkeye Initiative so popular?

● Do you get hatemail?
No, just gmail.

*HAWKWARD* I have no clue.
● Does Marvel comics know?
I’m sure they do, but I haven’t seen anything official or unofficial from them about it.
● How do I submit artwork?
● I submitted my artwork days ago and it hasn’t posted yet; is everything okay?
Probably; the queue is always full, and there are usually 500+ submissions in the inbox waiting to be gone through and everything is posted in chronological order.
That being said, I really am sorry that it takes so long to see your artwork come up! Unfortunately that’s just not something I can fix.
