There are lots of things that have changed, but for me one of the more telling differences in the New 52 is that in the old universe, Kon was the name Clark gave Superboy to signify that he was part of his family, that he had a place and a history and connections. In the new universe, it’s a prejudiced slur that literally means “abomination,” a word to curse at someone with.
So while my main problem with Frozen was the really stark contrast and characterization of Hans before and after his reveal, and the fact that this movie really didn’t need a villain to begin with (more on that later if I ever find the energy to write about it), the part that bugged the shit out of me was the song “Fixer Upper.”
Like wow, Disney. Just wow.
For a movie that’s being touted about “feminist” and “better than Beauty and the Beast,” I really can’t fathom how this song isn’t being critiqued to no end. The movie goes on and on about how Anna’s interest in Hans is shallow and of course she can’t be in love with a man after one night (even though Kristoff does the exact same thing and the narrative praises his romantic affections to no end), but then it turns around and practically demands her to date a guy she has no real interest in. That, and the fact that the song’s lesson is something that is already embedded into women at a very young age: that they should give a man chance after chance after chance, regardless of how little he actually fits the woman’s romantic needs. That if they try hard enough, he’ll be the man they think he could be (or the man they want him to be).
