Analyzing the Avengers: Here Come the Girls
on Thursday, February 7, 2013
For the final installment of Analyzing the Avengers, Ursa takes a look at all the secondary and tertiary female characters that populate the Marvel Movie-verse. Why does Pepper wear those shoes? Who is Darcy written for? How does the narrative reward Dr. Foster for her career? And is Thor's wardrobe department awesome, or what? Some of these questions and more will be answered, as we talk about the brilliance of the Avengers ladypeople!* (*Not so much the two Betty Rosses. But still.)
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
In order to do a thorough study of the Hulk (and Bruce Banner), Ursa had to watch Ang Lee's Hulk and The Incredible Hulk starring Ed Norton and Liv Tyler. She hopes you appreciate the sacrifice. And yes, she still loves Mark Ruffalo's Bruce best.Secret Avengers is what Agents of SHIELD should have been
“It feels distinctly like the beginning; that one day, the name Ales Kot will be associated with something huge and fantastic, and we’ll look back at early issues of Secret Avengers and recall how we knew he was destined for greatness all along.”Thor (2011)
Thor: God of Thunder. Prince of Asgard. KING OF CAPSLOCK. Kind of a prat. And capable of learning, growing, and inspiring little girls to dress up in armor and tutus.Analyzing the Avengers: Hawkeye
Oh, Clint, you so sassy. In this episode, Ursa chats about some aspects of Hawkeye's character in The Avengers, and then gets overexcited by the Hawkeye Initiative, and its sterling efforts in highlighting the ridiculousness of female poses in comics. Good job there, Agent Barton!Thor (2011)
“If Shakespeare had had the wherewithal to include giant robots and inter-dimensional portals and storm-generating mystical hammers in his plays, it just might have looked something like this movie.”Yes, you can be sexist about fictional characters
“It’s not the nonexistent feelings of a fictional woman that’s drawing ire, it’s that two real men are revealing their real (and not so great) attitudes towards women.”
