A Miles Morales Movie?

So there's a petition to set up the new MCU Spiderman as Miles Morales.  It's a longshot, but I am so rooting for this.  I haven't even bothered to watch the latest Spiderman movies, the trailers looked so awful; I prefer the earlier ones.  But if we could have Miles?  TAKE MAH MONEY!

I will never cease to be impressed by the fact that Miles came out of someone at Marvel saying, "I wonder what the demographics of New York are like today," looking up some actual facts, and then responding to the huge mixed race population by giving Miles an African/Hispanic heritage.  :D  

Poem: "Often Buried Deep"

This poem came out of the February 2015 Crowdfunding Creative Jam.  It was inspired by prompts from ng_moonmoth and DW user Dialecticdreamer.  It also fills the "rich and poor" square in my 12-17-14 card for the Genprompt Bingo fest.  This poem belongs to the series An Army of One.

There is a permanent donation button on my profile page, or you can contact me for other arrangements. You can also ask me about the number of lines per verse, if you want to fund a certain number of verses.

Poll: General Fund for February 17, 2015 Poetry Fishbowl

The general fund currently contains $39.  That is enough to put a big chunk into one epic, or split between two, so you've got some options.  Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I'll keep it open until at least Thursday afternoon.  If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it.  Otherwise I may leave it open a little longer.
