Captain Marvel, Marvel's first female-driven superhero movie, made over a billion dollars at the box office.

So they definitely got something right.


That didn't stop misogynist trolls from tearing down the film online, however.

So what's wrong with it?

Over nine months after the film's release, some comic book "fans" are still complaining that Carol Danvers (Brie Larson's character in the film) wasn't sexy enough.

The tweet was quickly highlighted by Twitter user @valsreactor, who tore it down for its misogynistic message.



Many others couldn't help but point out the "Captain Marvel" of this man's dreams...wasn't really Captain Marvel at all.



Also, lots of Twitter users thought Brie Larson's Captain looked pretty darn good even though her outfit wasn't overly revealing.


It's important to remember that women don't appear onscreen for the sexual satisfaction of men.


Our culture's undercurrent of misogyny is real and pervasive.


Maybe next time these whiny fanboys should go see a Ms Marvel movie instead.

Fortunately, Captain Marvel's fans have her back whenever she's not around to defend herself.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:
