Mini Assignment #2: Marvel/DC Character Guest Post

For this mini-assignment, we were asked to bring in a guest from either the Marvel Comics Universe or the DC universe to talk about anything.

Well, lately, it feels as though a lot of my design projects for other courses have incorporated a lot of risky design choices that may or may not have paid off so well in the end. Therefore, I decided that the topic should be about taking risks and who better to talk about that than Miles Morales A.K.A. Spider-Man. The floor is yours, Mr. Spider-Man, Mr. Miles? IDK.

*ehem* Thank you

So today, as Nick said, we’re gonna be talking about taking risks and how I think it is necessary to partake in life.

Taking risks is something that can either make you or break you. It’s something that has deterred a lot of people away from their true potential, from their goals. And I think it mostly stems from the fact that you might fail despite the vast amount of work that you put into it. You can put your heart, your soul, your blood, sweat, and tears, and still, someone can just come up in the end and knock everything you worked so hard on down to the ground. So why put in the effort? Because that’s the point, life doesn’t always work out the way you want. You don’t always win every battle that you face. And that’s okay. You’re not supposed to. What you’re supposed to do is to keep moving on, get back up and dust yourself off to get ready for the next risk you take.

I know it’s scary, believe me. I was scared too when I took on the mantle of being Spider-Man. I never thought I would be able to live up to the name that Peter Parker had once set out. No matter how much I didn’t want to take on the responsibility of being Spider-Man, I had to overcome a lot of challenges that came my way and I lost a lot of battles. I was punched, kicked, stabbed… shot, thrown, webbed to a chair, and had little pumpkin bombs chucked toward my face. Oh, and I also had my atoms materialize into different dimensions at one point. That was definitely the weirdest experience I had. Anyways, the point is no matter what was thrown my way, in the very end, I came out on top. I always got back up and tried again no matter how many times I’ve been knocked down. That’s one of the lessons that I learned about being Spider-Man. Because that’s who Spider-Man is. When you put on that mask, it gives you courage and strength during times of great danger. That’s all really what Spider-Man is. A guy wearing a mask. And anyone can wear the mask.

It’s scary ’cause you never really know if it’s gonna work out in the end. You don’t know if things will turn out for the better or for the worst. And that’s the point. You will never know. That’s all it is. A leap of faith.

And it all starts with you. Have faith. Have faith in yourself, or in others, or whatever higher being there is out there because no matter what you do, eventually, you will be okay in the end. You just gotta have faith. Whatever decision you take will be the right decision for you.

Thank you again for having me as your guest. I love you.
