Yet another reason to love Ta-Nehisi Coates

I'm a big fan of Ta-Nehisi Coates, the writer and blogger at the Atlantic.

The man is learning French, something of a small inspiration to us all who fear we might not be capable of learning something major after 30. In a recent post he wrote about tenses in French and his metaphor was yet another reason to read and love him:

"The indicative mood is Earth-616. The conditional gives us the Age of Apocalypse. The subjunctive is House of M."

Who wouldn't want to study French with metaphors like that?
