Guardians of the Galaxy + The Beatles = Hey Groot!
Superman/Batman #60 or that one time Batman and Superman found themselves in an alternate dimension where the Justice Titans, hybrid versions of members from the Justice League and the Titans, was apparently a thing…

Just your daily reminders:
- Racists are a problem
- White people are not
- Homophobes are a problem
- Straight people are not
- Transphobes are a problem
- Cis people are not
- Sexists are a problem
- Men are not
And most importantly,
- Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole
Just some actual daily reminders:
- All white people do racist things without being aware they are
- All straight people do homophobic things without being aware that they are.
- All Cis people do transphobic things without being aware that they are.
- All men do sexist things without being aware that they are.
- Saying things like ‘some men’, ‘some cis people’ absolves the blame of individuals and only seeks to comfort those with privilege and power.
- When a post says ‘some X’, the X will always assume that they are not because THEY ARE NOT AWARE.
And most importantly,
- It’s called metonymy, when anyone who is oppressed makes an exasperated statement like ‘i hate straight people’, they are substituting straight people for the concept of a system and a culture that teaches, incentives, and legitimizes homophobic acts and normalizes homophobic acts so that straight people constantly do homophobic things without realizing it and that’s really fucking annoying.
And just as important,
- The concept of sjws dehumanizes marginalized people and categorizes them as an ‘angry and emotional’ stereotype and only adds to the oppression of marginalized people under the guise of being ‘fair’, while the only thing you are doing is cushioning privileged people from their own ignorance and privilege.
No! I strongly disagree - the events of The Hobbit were so important to Middle Earth! Gandalf addresses just a couple of the important consequences of the events of The Hobbit when, after the War of the Ring, he says:
Think of what might have been. Dragon-fire and savage swords in Eriador! There might be no Queen in Gondor. We might now only hope to return from the victory here to ruin and ash. But that has been averted – because I met Thorin Oakenshield one evening on the edge of spring not far from Bree.
I mean, just consider:
- Because Smaug was killed during The Hobbit, he wasn’t alive to help Sauron during the War of the Ring. Gandalf says himself that Smaug might have been sent to attack Lorien or Rivendell, but it’s also possible that he might have been used in the attack of Gondor.
- Because the dwarves reclaimed Erebor and Dale was rebuilt, the north was populated by two more powerful forces - had Erebor and Dale not been so strong, Sauron might not have bothered dividing his forces, giving Gondor a much larger army to contend with. Or the portion of the army that attacked Dale might have been sent to reinforce the army at Dol Guldur, overwhelming Lorien and Mirkwood’s forces.
- Because of the specific events of the Battle of Five Armies the men of Dale and the dwarves of Erebor entered the War of the Ring as close allies. Had The Hobbit ended differently, it’s possible that Erebor might not have come to Dale’s aid when attacked by Sauron’s armies (for example, during the War Between the Elves and Sauron, the dwarves of Moria helped a little, but then closed their gates and waited out the rest of the war in isolation.)
- Because Dain Ironfoot specifically was King Under the Mountain, he immediately distrusted Sauron’s messenger (at the beginning of Fellowship of the Ring, Sauron sent messengers to Erebor promising all sorts of stuff in return for information on Bilbo). Instead of giving in to Sauron’s request, or even just ignoring him, he sent messengers - Gimli and Gloin - to Rivendell, causing them to be present for the Council of Elrond. (I say Dain is important in this because he’s always come off as very wise, especially in the face of the eviler things in Middle Earth, such as his response to glimpsing the balrog in Moria.)
- Also keep in mind that it’s during The Hobbit that the White Council drove Sauron out of Dol Guldur. Therefore the events of The Hobbit also represent the beginning of Gondor’s long war with Mordor (which obviously had a huge impact on that country, and the people that lived there.)
- And, of course, it’s during The Hobbit that the One Ring was found - and, more importantly, was found by Bilbo and kept in a place Gandalf frequented, which made it possible for him to become aware of the Ring so early.
There are probably dozens of other important consequences the events of The Hobbit had on Middle Earth’s history. You just have to look at the big picture.
