Adoptive of Earth

There’s a panel in the comic Young Avengers[1] in which the Noh-Varr (Marvel Boy)[2] refers to Teddy Altman (Hulkling)[3] as “Teddy, adoptive of Earth”.[4] Teddy is half-Kree, half-Skrull but has been living on Earth for most of his life and grew up thinking that he was a human with mutant superpowers. He becomes a superhero and determines his own destiny.

This is my first post on my new site Homeworld Journal, and I want to determine my own destiny, too. This is my little corner of the fandom Multiverse, on Earth-1218,[5] where I write about books, social justice, and secularism. I hope to use my writing to share my love of stories and my thoughts on societal issues. I believe in trying to do the right thing and seek to see Earth as my home. We are all imperfect humans, but I do ultimately have hope in humanity.
