The Avengers genderswap ▶ Judi Dench as Odin
“A wise queen never seeks out war, but she must always be ready for it.”
I made my three-year-old niece her first convention/Halloween costume this year. If you ask her who she is dressed as, she’ll reply, “Tiny Princess Captain America!”
On Halloween, we discovered that if you point to a kid in a Captain America costume and ask her who he’s dressed as, she will also reply, “Tiny Princess Captain America!”
Guys, hey, guys. Do you remember that time that Coulson called Natasha and she ended up forming the Avengers? Remember how she did that by digging up Bruce Banner and introducing Steve to him then was the voice of reason when Tony and Steve were bickering and then how she brought Clint back from being mind controlled so that they can be a team? Remember that? Remember how the Black Widow out smarted a god? Remember that time she kept her shit together when the Hulk attacked her, even though she was really scared? Remember when she knocked an alien off his flying scooter and figured out how to drive it despite it being extrateresstrial tech, then got her ass up to the top of Stark Tower, found Loki’s staff and saved the world from being invaded by turning off the machine?
Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?
Anyone else remember that? I sure do.
I love this post.
I think of you in starry skies, I keep you, so alive.
Let’s walk through the fire together, disappear in the golden sands.
It’s all in your face, I see it break. It’s like the sound of winter.
Bleeding love, the silent escape. You’ve got to hang onto yourself.
i don’t understand why people are saying it’s ~too complex~ to mention bucky in the avengers movie, when you only know who peggy is if you’ve seen the cap movie. and if you’ve seen the cap movie, then you already know bucky was steve’s bestie in…
Wait wait wait. Look at this. WHO IS THE DOSSIER HE PUTS PEGGY ON TOP OF? He’s already been looking through the file, and while I don’t have my glasses at work, I think that’s Bucky to his left that he sets Peggy on top of before moving on to Howard.
Anyone with better vision? Bueller?
Avengers Assemble #5
Bendis, you shit.
Alright, so this could go several ways.
- It’s just pandering. Nothing will ever come of it.
- Natasha and Clint will do their dance for a bit, before Clint finally decides he wants Jessica after all. Natasha will never acknowledge she’s in a relationship herself, however obliquely.
- Since Bendis is moving off The Avengers, he’s complying to a Marvel edict to torpedo Clint/Jessica so he can go on to date Natasha, who will break it off with Bucky in Winter Soldier.
I’ll be in my room, reading Captain America & Bucky #624 and listening to Florence and the Machine.
BENDIS YOU MOTHER HUGGER YOU BETTER MAKE CLINTASHA A CANNON THING.
KILL JESSICA. SHE IS IN THE WAY OF OUR TRUE LOVE.
Is everyone not aware that Natasha has a boyfriend herself? You know, Bucky? The one she’s been in a committed, mutually-supportive relationship with for the past five years or so?
Not surprised, Bendis pretty much ignores continuity and does whatever the fuck he wants, he already had Steve cheat on Sharon.
But really this came out of the left-field, yes Clint and Natasha have romantic history but it ended and ever since then both of them moved on past the romance into a warm BFF platonic relationship, and while two people can fall into old ways again there was no real build to this (nor was there that much build-up to Jessica/Clint).
Bucky and Nat had a lot of build up and Bru was careful to tell the reader just why these two fell in love all those years ago and why they are in love again.
Clint is all “Oh Natasha you don’t have to act tough, you’re my best friend you’re awesome” and she immediately jumps and kisses him? and then does the typical “NO! You have a girlfriend, we must DENY OUR FEELINGS!” cliche
Hopefully Bru makes it so this Natasha was a LMD or something (or that Marvel declares this title as an AU story).
WHAT. THE. FUCK.
Natalia/Bucky FOREVER NOW. Clint & Tasha were a good couple, but they make better BFFs with this amount of canon behind them.
Ship Movie!Tasha & Movie!Clint all you want, Mr. Bendis - I sure as hell do! - but don’t ruin all the marvelous character development going on in Winter Soldier.
