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.)
Iron Man (2008)
Ah, Tony Stark. How Ursa loves you, even if you're sometimes kind of a jerk. So much so that she's going to try and explain why. (Then again, she enjoyed Iron Man 2, so what does that tell you?)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.Analyzing the Avengers: Loki
He is Loki of Asgard, and he is burdened with a purpose so glorious that it supersedes showering. Ursa takes a look at the Internet's favorite demigod bad boy.Iron Man 2 (2010)
“I’m constantly getting the feeling I was supposed to study ahead of time for this movie.”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!The Avengers (2012)
Ursa turns the squee up to eleven and watches The Avengers. Or Marvel's The Avengers. Or Avengers Assemble. Oh, who cares what it's called? It's awesome! Fanboys and fangirls, assemble!
