man someone has probably already done this

So you know how in Iron Man 2, Tony insists that Coulson’s first name is “Agent”?

(via mistark)

And in Agent Carter, Peggy quite clearly states what her name is: 

(via tyrells)


What if, instead of Tony being really jealous and clingy and immature, he’s just remembering his good ol’ Aunt Peggy and her insistence that the most important part of her name, of any S.H.I.E.L.D. member’s name, is “Agent.” What if Tony is remembering Peggy Carter? 

Someone has probably already done it but I decoded the message from TFP and it says


which is an obvious reference to “The Adventure of the Dancing Men”
I researched it (on wikipedia like a professional) and found this:

The little dancing figures are a main part of the mystery, which seem to be driving Mr. Hilton Cubitt’s young wife Elsie Patrick to distraction. He married her about 1 year ago, and until recently, everything was well. She is American, and before the wedding, she asked her husband-to-be to promise her never to ask about her past, as she had had some “very disagreeable associations” in her life, although she said that there was nothing that she was personally ashamed of. Mr. Cubitt swore the promise and, being an honourable English gentleman, insists on living by it.

The story follows with Elsie getting disturbing coded letters but she never told her husband what was going on. These messages were written by Slaney, who was Elsie’s former fiancé from Chicago. She had originally fled his clutches because he was a dangerous criminal. Slaney came to England to woo her back. Elsie’s husband was killed by Slaney and Elsie shot herself but recovered from her injuries.

I’m not sure what they want to tell us but it has something to do with Mary and her death, maybe foreshadowing what actually happend in The Six Thatchers

  • Shaw: *is lost somewhere in a crowd*
  • Root: *hands a random man a card* please read this, I'm trying to find my friend
  • Random Man: Root is honestly just the evil, female counterpart of Harold and is completely irrelevant to the team
  • Random Man: *gets kneecapped*
  • Root: well she's still lost, but that's nice to know

You can see the difference between a superb show (Daredevil) and a show written by - and probably for - children (Agents of SHIELD). 

When Karen Page kills James Wesley, a man who had already tried to put her down, he is threatening to kill her and everyone she loves. After killing him, she is completely shocked and almost loses it because realizes she has just taken someone else’s life and it’s not about Wesley, it’s about her. Karen doesn’t even want to tell Matt and Foggy, probably because she’s too ashamed of what she has done. Karen doesn’t think “he was evil, and worked for Fisk, who’s eviler and got my friend killed so it was the right thing to do high five for me!”, Karen feels like she did what was necessary or, like I am more inclined to believe, impulsively acted on her fears, which are completely justified. Karen knows that killing people is wrong no matter what, and Daredevil addresses all of this, as I stated before.

On the other hand, in Agents of GLEE - sorry - Agents of SHIELD, Jemma Simmons (or, the one who used to be my favourite character when I still gave a shit about the show) is like “YAY! Let’s murder Ward bc he’s evil and is totally the right thing to do! Oh wait, I’m going to murder Bakshi instead bc he’s evil he deserves it ayyyy lmao”. Now, while I think that Jemma thinking about and almost trying to kill Ward is not out of character nor is surprising, considering what Ward has done to her, everything else is a giant what the fuck. 

Simmons wants to kill Ward? Her thinking about doing so is ALREADY character development. She’s not even a specialist, she is a biochemist. She’s not used to put people down like this, is it hard to add layers to the issue? It is, when you deal with good/evil and right/wrong like you’re 5-years-old. This is not only about Simmons/Ward, the show has been on this path from the very first episode, the Hydra thing made it worse. Meanwhile the writers are trying to justify their shitty writing by saying “she’s changed” They’ve been doing this for months. They screw a character over? OH BUT THEY’RE CHANGED. Well, Simmons has been sidelined and mistreated the whole season, she was not even worthy of having her own personal storyline such as going undercover and infiltrating Hydra (still bitter about this). Don’t expect to see the aftermath of what she has done or the impact it has on her: if they didn’t bother to address what Coulson and Skye did to Donnie Gill, a brainwashed teenager who wasn’t even evil, I don’t think they’ll do it with someone like Bakshi. 

(I’ve seen people saying “why should Simmons be sorry? He’s evil”. This is what I mean when I say that AoS is for kids.)

The real problem here is how the show is handling all of this. They want to keep the audience in line, therefore they don’t call out the “good guys” on their wrongdoings by hiding behind the evil/bad characters. It’s a goddamn kids’ cartoon. I mean, they don’t refer to Ward as a “traitor” or a “piece of shit”, they call him “murderer” and “psychopath” which is honestly so embarrassing since this is a show about spies, trained killers and shady organizations with questionable methods. As I already said, it’s like the characters in a show about drug dealers are outraged because character X sells drugs. Seriously, who writes this?

Anyway, can Jemma Simmons join Daredevil? She and Karen would be great together.
