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.)

Look Ma, no puns! Instead, we've got prequels, sequels, mythology, prophecy, and when it's better Not To Know.
