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.)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
“It’s funny that in a world inhabited by iron-clad, god-like, and star-spangled superheroes, we end up with such bland and boring villains.
”Analyzing the Avengers: Black Widow
She's as broken and scarred as the rest of the Avengers, but it'll never prevent her from doing the right thing. Black Widow: She's Ursa's favorite Avenger. And now, she gets character development, and a plot arc to boot!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.”Iron Man 2 (2010)
“I’m constantly getting the feeling I was supposed to study ahead of time for this movie.”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.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.”
