Cool that Diamondback is in the new Captain America Winter Soldier OS game.


Though I’m a bit miffed that she’s a villain.

YAY PINK COSTUME!

Seriously, I’m back in a Diamondback mood!

I swear, Captain America 3 probably gonna be announced soon has my hype meter going haywire cause I really hope Diamondback shows up.

YOU CAN’T STOP ME FROM HOPING!!!!

DIAMONDBACK - Rachel Leighton

Easily one of my favorite Marvel characters.


More Ultimate Diamondback.

But yeah, should be cool

Well then, Ultimate Diamondback!

A very punkish design, I must say. Seems to be going back to her have shaven head days.  Also a villain, but hey, as long as it’s Ultimate Universe and not 616 universe.

What’s really weird is that Crossbones seems to be her minion.   Cause…well…Crossbones kinda…raped Diamondback in the main universe…

Still, very cool to have Ultimate Diamondback.

Why Songbird and Diamondback? Why are you a fan of them specifically?

Songbird was actually a character I fell in love with unexpectedly. 

When I got into comics, I mainly got into it for Deadpool cause Internet, etc.  There was a tie in issue with the Thunderbolts during Dark Reign that I enjoyed so much, that I went back to find other issues of T-bolts.

Which led me to buy Thunderbolts 126 and 127 (I think they were), where the team of Bullseye, Venom and Moonstone tried to kill Songbird.  I never knew this character, and seeing the cliff hanger of her throat about to be slit made me feel very depressed.  ”Great, another person to just be killed cause the world of comics is cruel”.  But then Songbird did the unexpected.  She beat Bullseye.  She even got a knife threw her hand, and yet still fought off the three of them.  And Songbird almost died a total of 4 times in those 2 issues, but she escaped.  She fucking lived.  That was one of the most badass things I ever saw from a character I never heard of.

That is the moment why I love Songbird.  She’s a fucking badass that NOBODY seems to care about, but she deserves so much better.  I’m really angry how much writers ignore her and I wish Tumblr would read those two issues and realize how great she is.


Diamondback came about through a Cable and Deadpool issue.  You know, the BAD Girl Inc issues.  I thought she looked fun, and I looked up her background, and was interested.  A goofball villain who turns good cause she wanted to date Captain America and ends up being a try hard hero who never quite makes it?  How is that not relatable?

Songbird and Diamondback are two characters I genuinely came to love on my own, and I really wish they got more mainstream press.  They will always be my favorite two Marvel heroes.

So, about 2 years ago, there was an issue of Captain America that came out, and at the end of the arc, Diamondback is hinted at dating Falcon.  I thought that was a cool idea!

Then I went onto /co/ and they said “Oooooh man, I can’t want to see how mad S/D is gonna be cause Diamondback is dating a black guy!”

And I’m like…what?  Is that really the first thought that goes through their heads?   That I’m going to be mad cause a black character is dating a character I really like?

/co/ can be so fucking closed minded.

Marvel girls I like.

(Should I go for the whole 10 picture slots?  I’m not sure how good these are)
