MCU Ladies Week | Day 2: Unsung Hero ↳ Maria Hill
When did you become an expert in thermonuclear astrophysics?
Maria Hill was Nick Fury’s second in command because she was very good at her job. She looked after the Avengers while working as the Deputy Director of the world’s greatest intelligence agency. She even saved Natasha, Steve and Sam when Hydra tried to take them out. She kept an eye on Coulson and his team. She worked at Stark Industries after she helped bring SHIELD down. Maria Hill is the reason half of our beloved superheroes are even alive. She doesn’t need superpowers to keep up with the Avengers.
Her eyegaze was glued to the carpets that lined the halls of the dorm building. She had tried to walk back to her room by memory, keeping her head down and hood up so no one could see her like this. She had just spent the past 24 hours in a hospital and she was a wreck. Remnants of makeup from the day before was sloped across her face; the worst of it being the streaks of black that originated from her once credulous eyes. Standing in front of what she thought was her door, Ev pushed the already unlocked door open and trudged to what she thought was her bed. In her mind all she needed was real sleep, because at least then she could give her mind a rest.
