UNCANNY X-MEN #299 is an X-Men issue that, surprisingly, doesn't have a lot of action. It is mostly set up that Magneto is still alive and Professor Xavier debating Senator Robert Kelly on Nightline (but with a guest-host instead of Ted Koppell). But I consider two pages from the issue very inspiring.

The Princess is a cute webcomic about a young trans girl, name of Sarah. It's adorable, funny and serves as a pretty good primer on trans issues.

Here are a few pages.

Recent political events in the USA have caused a great deal of confusion and for some, outright fear.

The President Elect of the USA has gone on record with comments that are racist, sexist, Islamophobic, and generally playing on nebulous societal fears. The Vice President Elect has made homophobic and mysogynist comments.

What all of this augurs for the future is as yet uncertain, and we don't want to engage in scaremongering, but caution seems advisable for now.

In the meantime, the Mod Team wish it to be known that Scans_Daily has, and always will be, a haven from such things. We will challenge and call out examples of bigotry and hate, and will never endorse them.

However, in the meantime we feel we need something more than that right now, something constructive. Our community exists to celebrate and share comic scans and that’s what we’re going to do, in our own special way.

So we are launching a new Theme Week right here and now; “Inspiration point”.

We are looking to you for examples from comics of any format, of characters or moments that inspired you. That gave you hope, or comfort, or the will to go on during trying times.

Has Ms Marvel as an independent young Muslim woman given you confidence? Wonder Woman reminded you that women have a strong voice? The X-Men made you realise that being different is okay? Have Midnighter and Apollo kissing on panel made you happy? Or a shared moment of recognition when Blaze of the Misfits came out as trans to the group? A fanart that struck a chord?

You have scans of this sort of thing that have meaning for you? (and we appreciate the examples above barely scratch the surface) bring them on, if they worked for you, who knows who else they might help.

If you would also care to share WHY they inspire you that would be awesome too, though we're not asking you to share anything that would make you uncomfortable.

We support each other during such times. We are a community: We are women, men and the glorious spectrum in between and beyond. We are cis, trans, gay, straight, queer, asexual. We are from all over the world, young and old, with faith or without. We are your community and we are stronger because you choose to be here!

Stay safe, share scans, and as be excellent to each other!
