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.
They traded my pointe shoes for pistols and taught a ballerina to murder.

George R. R. Martin, on reviewing the Avengers. [SOURCE]
Okay, George, I do totally agree with your earlier assessment of Hawkeye. I’ll give you that he didn’t have enough screentime to get proper development. But no. I can’t even let you finish, there will be no finishing of the Kanye West meme here. WERE WE WATCHING THE SAME FILM?
I don’t want to automatically fall back on the “you think she’s just eye candy, because you’re a male” argument, because that’s unfair. Fuck, you write some really damned decent females yourself (all things considered). But honestly? No. No, we were not watching the same film.
“JUST THERE?” Uh, did you not see any of her development at all, or were you just waiting for the men to come in and steal the show? This is the same character who is the only one to get decent information when everyone else is too busy arguing over stupid personal bullshit. This is the same character who has a conversation with Loki and doesn’t lose her cool. This is the same character jumping onto alien warcraft and beating these assholes at their own game. This is the same character saving the motherfucking day by racing off to beat Loki while all the boys are too busy playing house with the alien army.
Don’t tell me she was just there. That she was just eye candy. She was one of the most important motherfucking characters in the entire film, and it saddens me when reviews degrade Johansson’s performance simply because she isn’t one of the guys. And why do all of these reviews seem to come from long time comics fans, 90% of the time all male? You do realize that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a canon into itself and doesn’t actually follow the comics the way you’re claiming it should? That characters were changed and updated to fit with current audiences and currently relevant plots? Laying this all on Black Widow’s origins not adding up right is just plain silly at this point in the MCU game. (A game you don’t seem to be playing well, G.R.R.M.)
Flawless bitch carried that goddamn film. Period.
“Flawless bitch carried that goddamn film. Period.” YEP.
I WISH THEY WERE MY SCIENCE TEACHERS!!!!!
So… Having witnessed this with my own eye (Natalie asked Quesada about this after the panel, apparently some people were around and heard it too… and apparently Quesada has been saying the same thing to different people too…), here is a very interesting post on the…
