Evans was even more tight-lipped about the sequel, but he did promise that the script exceeded his already-lofty expectations. “It’s a tough balance for Marvel to orchestrate these independent franchises while still dipping into the Avengers pool,” he said. “But the script is so good.” Yet it quickly became clear that Captain America 3 is the project he’s most excited to begin work on.
“I just love the relationship with Bucky, the Winter Soldier [Sebastian Stan],” Evans said. “Cap’s this wildly selfless man who is going through a very traumatic experience and determined not to bleed on anybody but challenged with such a conflicting hurdle. It’s this really beautiful dichotomy of trying to be strong and selfless, but at the same time, facing this real personal challenge.”
He added, “This is so personal for Cap, who has had to adjust to modern times; not just with tech shock and how society operates, but with the fact he’s been alone. He had no connection to anyone from his life when he was suddenly slammed with this relationship from his past, and seeing that evolve and come to fruition will be very exciting.”(x)

I’ve received this question a lot, and I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get to it.
First, let’s look at the many ways a person may become blind.
- Macular Degeneration
- Retinitis Pigmentosa
- Diabetic Retinopathy
Trauma to the occipital lobe to the brain
Poisoning (certain chemicals may cause damage to the nerve bundles that send signals to the eye and back to the brain, causing blindness)
Direct eye damage
When the body loses one of its senses, the brain literally re-maps itself to compensate for the loss of one of those senses. This re-mapping has even been seen via brain scans of people who have lost limbs, but feel their limb when their cheek is touched, etc. It is the brain compensation for that loss.
In saying this, people who are blind have a higher sense of awareness than someone who is not blind. This is their brain compensating. They have a heightened sense of touch, as it is something they rely heavily on. Touch is important as it allows them to get a sort of ‘image’ of what it is they are touching, or helps to guide them in a proper direction.
Their sense of hearing is also heightened, as they have to rely on the direction of sounds to locate where something is.
It is often said that blind people have a sort of ‘sixth sense’ in knowing when people are in a room or when things are near/around them.
Having a good memory becomes a large part of a blind person’s life. Their daily routine can be heavily attributed to good memory, as they need to remember where a pole is, where a set of steps are to be able to navigate more freely without much worry. New places can sometimes be a little difficult, but it is nothing they cannot handle.
Some people who are blind are able to distinguish when there is a light source and when there is not. Shadows may be outlined for them and nothing more. Not all blind people live in absolutely darkness, and images and outlines may show up here and there, but it isn’t always enough for them to distinguish what something is.
People who are blind may decide to keep their eyes closed all the time, wear glasses to keep their eyes covered, or open their eyes, but their eyes will not focus on anything in particular. This is purely personal preference.
In modern times, there have been loads of technological improvements for those who have the affliction of blindness.
Here are just some of the things people afflicted with blindness may use in their daily lives:
- White cane (for walking and guiding ones self to keep from running into objects or stepping in holes)
- Seeing-eye animals. This is particularly to dogs or miniature ponies to help a person in their daily life.
- Text to speech. For people using computers and other devices, the text can be read aloud so the person knows what they are attempting to read.
- Eye prosthetics. These are for people who would like to have normal looking eyes. They are like a very large contact that fits over the entire front part of the eye, and is painted to look like a normal eye.
- Brailler/Braille Embosser. A device blind people use to write in Braille. The machine punches the raised dots into paper so that one may read and write in braille.
- Braille. Raised dots that are used as an alphabet to allow blind people to read via use of their fingers/sense of touch.
- Devices that tell people when a glass is almost full of liquid being poured are available.
- Devices that tell people when water is boiling are available.
This list can be very extensive, so if you’re wondering if a certain device exists for a blind person, just google it. There are many available today.
Know that blind people can do practically anything that seeing people can, as long as they set their mind to it.
I hope this helps!
a comic done by christianne benedict, posted on the womanthology art forum. brilliant!
YES. Jesus, thank you.
I cannot tell you how many times I have had to point out what the audience at conventions actually LOOKS like to people in the industry. They can do signings in a booth full of every kind of person all day long, every color, every size, every orientation and more, and STILL go online and talk about how only white straight males read comics.
IT IS PROFOUNDLY UNTRUE AND INSULTINGLY IGNORANT.
So yesterday, my dog’s tether broke. We’ve been using it to keep him outside to do his business instead of one of us trailing along behind him. (Mostly started when he was a puppy in the freezing freaking cold.) I’ve been trying to take him out with a leash but he keeps thinking that we’re going on a walk, won’t do anything and starts whining when I don’t move off the porch.
And We’re Back! Featuring a much better shading style and a very pissed off werewolf. Site’s still kind of in flux, but we’ll be fixing that as soon as we can.
