How I feel about this character: Wow okay my first impression of Ronan is he is not exactly the life of the party I mean like seriously dude DO YOU EVER SMILE. And then he grew on me like a fungus like any old asshole who clatters around in armor (see: Doctor Doom) or cybernetic enhancements or whatever. But hey, somewhere some writer took a mostly one-dimensional villain and was like let’s make him not a villain anymore exactly but not exactly the most likable character. Like, Annihilation: Ronan was kind of weird but entertaining (plus it had Gamora, my fictional girlfriend!).
All the people I ship romantically with this character: I’m pretty certain based on Annihilation: Ronan, Gamora would have hit that, and in the most violent way possible. Not that he would totally complain because I see him as someone who enjoys being dominated by someone else, I mean he begrudgingly ruled the Kree empire before he could relinquish that responsibility on someone else. So I can accept Crystal/Ronan but mostly because I see it as something where Crystal calls the shots, he’s pretty much in awe of her and so she could do with him whatever the hell she wanted to. Meanwhile if we look at early Shitlord Ronan I might accidentally ship him with Captain Marvel because damn he seemed awfully obsessed with capturing his ass and keeping him restrained and such, seriously just what was that all about.
My non-romantic OTP for this character: Star-Lord. Also Beta Ray Bill, like they could get drunk and compare hammers idk lol
My unpopular opinion about this character: uhhhh that I’m okay with him being married to Crystal? tbh I’m more horrified to read recently that she had a thing with Bob ~*the Sentry*~ Reynolds like wtf noooooooo
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon. It would be nice if his sordid past came back to haunt him lol. Talk about being judged. Seriously, dude, you did some fucked up shit.
