So I was watching agents of s.h.i.e.l.d last night and my roommate’s little brother came in and asked what I was watching. I turned the screen around and his face lit up he was so excited. “Oh my god! That show is so great! Where are you??” so we started talking about it (and how lame it was that I was still watching season 2) which naturally evolved into the ‘who is your favorite character’ conversation. I was gushing about Fitz (because i always fall for characters like him) when he surprised me. I was expecting him to be like ‘oh yeah Coulson’s the man’, or Hunter or someone else but he said “I can’t decide if May or Skye is my favorite, they are both so cool, and May KICKS ASS.” That was so cool to me. Like this show and its characters are important because it is rare to find a show where a 15 year old boy wants to be like a tough, independent woman instead of a buff womanizer, but this show does that.
As if I needed another reason to love marvel. There it is.
