When someone sets a boundary with you they are saying “no.” No means no. Do not push people on their boundaries or ask for explanations that are not readily given. Doing these things indicates that you do not respect their boundaries. For many people, saying “no” once, setting a boundary, is difficult enough. Do not put them in a position where they must repeatedly do so. No means no the first time. Pushing them on it suggests a hope that you can wear them down, which is problematic at best and predatory at worst. No means no.
My gender is wibbly wobbly, timey whimey at the moment. Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve isolated myself from all human contact for the most part at the moment or the fact I’ve failed to have my shot except for only three times this year. Or the fact that my main role play character at the moment is a strong femme female character. I don’t regret transitioning. I just wish there was a place in society where I could be more…me. Where gender wasn’t such a huge issue and people could be whatever they want without -that- stigma and judgement.
My brain is a bag of cats at the moment caught in a storm of questioning.
Found this. Cried laughing. Way too much truth in one post!

Okay, but hear me out. I think they are setting up Leo Fitz to be some named Marvel character, and most likely a villain since that’s what “mad scientists” seem to always be labeled as.
It’s the perfect soup for an enemy origin story: likable brainy “every guy” is the victim of horrible circumstances, faces an obstacle that should kill him, self-sacrifices himself to save the woman he loves, and ends up crazy and brain damaged because of it.
Its too good of a a setup not to use it. I mean, if this wasn’t a show based off comic books, chances are Fitz would just be a vegetable, or have trouble doing everyday things. But as this IS a comic book universe, Fitz is still a genius - he pointed out that he still as lots of super sciency ideas - just having trouble expressing them. “They just don’t understand me” is mad scientist 101.
So who is he going to be? Well I enlisted the help of my buddy drmoreautamis who is much more versed on the 616 than I, and I specifically asked for mentally unstable characters who use invisibility. I chose to look for invisibles mostly because Fitz had been working for “months” on his cloaking technology.
Turns out there is a Marvel-616 character who seems to fit the order: Ghost. Here is why Ghost is pretty damn fascinating and how he seems to be a perfect choice for Fitz’s eventual fall into super-villainy:
- Ghosts real name in the 616 is unknown. That means that if the MCU comes along and claims Leo Fitz as Ghost, they aren’t necessarily “changing the character” suddenly like they would if random made Melinda May “Captain Marvel” or something. SO far the MCU has generally kept the names of their 616 counterparts the same, even if they significantly after their appearance or backstory.
- Ghost was previously a “very promising” data engineer who was described as being a very introverted, socially awkward young man. Is focus was on developing “GhostTech” computer chips, that “phased into an intangible state before overheating, yet could still function in this state and hold an incredible amount of data”
- Already a workaholic, after the death of his lover, he became increasing introverted and obsessed, and basically mentally broke down. Now in 616, the story different but the outcome in MCU is the same: Ghost loses the woman he loves, becomes even more of a introvert than he already was, and eventually begins to test his ghost-tech on himself.
- In the Marvel-616, Ghost is actually listed as “neutral” rather than “evil” - specifically addressing that he’s a victim of circumstance more than just a bad guy. This fits very well with Fitz, who was shown to be becoming increasingly irritable and introverted and frustrated - but not evil.
Okay so there you have it - I could be WAY off base, but I think the set up is too good to ignore. Nothing happens in the MCU without reason after all! You can read more about Ghost here.
He’s not the same, and since Simmons left, he’s only getting worse. Simmons said she thought he’d be better without her here, but her leaving just broke him.
