The lioness who hugs hoodies: Amazing pictures of abandoned big cat and her heartwarming bond with men who saved her
This is enough to warm even the wildest of hearts.
Deep in the African bush a lioness gives giant hug to the two men who saved her.
As a cub, Sirga was driven out of her pride and rescued by Valentin Gruener and Mikkel Legarth who could not stand by and watch her die.
Now the 110lb lioness has developed an incredible bond with the pair who are fighting to save her species in Botswana, southern Africa.
there is nothing about this I don’t love
LOOK AT THE HOW SHE HUGS THEM.
That’s it, I’m done.
Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw. Ron is Hufflepuff. Harry is Slytheryn. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another house if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery and anyone can choose to be brave.
I fuck with your theory, marry me.
Adapt to this
LET ME JUST POINT OUT THE VARIOUS FLAWS OF LOGIC HERE. FIRST OF ALL DARWINS POWER IS TO LITERALLY ADAPT TO ANYTHING IN THE EFFING UNIVERSE. HIS POWERS DEEMED IT TOO DANGEROUS TO FIGHT THE HULK AND TELEPORTED HIM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE ONCE BECAME PURE COSMIC EFFING ENERGY AND SHORTLY AFTER REMATERIALIZED AS A HUMAN BEING TO PREVENT HIS DEATH. DARWIN IS LITERALLY INEFFINGVINCIBLE. AND YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT A PATHETIC BALL OF KINETIC ENERGY FROM SEBASTIAN SHAW MERKS HIM?!?!?! THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE OUT TO KILL THE BLACK MAN IN THE PLOT AND LITERALLY WROTE THIS SCENE WITH NO REGARDS TO DARWINS POWERS WHATSOEVER AND ITS FRUSTRATING THAT THEY WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO KILL HIM OFF LIKE THAT
I’m saying. Even in sci fi we ain’t safe
in my headcanon darwin literally became a being of energy and ascended to another plain of existence so he doesn’t have to deal with anymore of this white nonsense
Even in Scifi? We not safe in real life.
thank you I’ve been saying this for the longest!!!!! He is a damn omega level mutant, meaning in the movie he would be a class 5! Dude even adapted into a God and became the God of Death! Dude was college educated in the comics and they made him a taxi driver…like Black folks weren’t educated in the 70’s. And they didn’t even acknowledge that he was an Afro Latino…his name is Armando Munoz, he’s one of the few Afro latino superheros and they did him so dirty.
A movie that’s a metaphor for prejudice/racism/etc did the black guy dirty.
Yep. This was some white nonsense for real
And literally 2 minutes before that, the long, lingering shot on Darwin with Shaw’s “live like slaves” line. *rolls eyes*
And they cut the after-credits scene where he was SUPPOSED to come back in his ultimate form.
It was complete bullshit.
Not to mention the only other Black person on the team became a villain.
That movie is such a goddamn mess
Haha, so fun fact: in X-factor the team runs into Darwin, and at first they are confused because he’s looks different then they remembered, his skin is lighter! They discuss this, and come to the conclusion that his power detected racism as a threat to his life and lightened his skin so that he’d pass as white.
When he joins the group and feels like he has a safer and more welcoming community his skin starts to darken again.
It’s nice when X-men and spinoffs remember that the mutants are supposed to be a metaphor.
those eyes say ‘don’t fckin worry man I got this Imma survive you know what my power is’
