Sometimes I forget to brush and floss. But I NEVER forget to tongue scrape with my Dear Leader Tongue Scraper™. It always leaves my breath oh so fresh. But of course not as fresh as our supreme leader, Kim Jong-un.
It’s been almost a year and Natasha’s characterization in Age of Ultron still makes me uncomfortable.
Captain America: the Winter Soldier finally gave her a personality besides Monotone Cut-Throat Spy. It humanized her, gave her a personality, sense of humor, and feelings.
Her crying when she thought Fury was dead
Her being stunned when she asked Steve if he trusted her, and he said yes.
The arrow necklace she wore in honor of Clint.
Her poking fun at Steve
Her choosing to stay by his side and loyal to Fury
She stopped being just Black Widow, the lethal spy who deadpans and dully stares at everything, and became Natasha, a well-rounded woman.
Then Age of Ultron gave her a sudden and creepy obsession with Bruce Banner, acting completely out of character and, dare I say it, regressive.
Linking her humanity to her uterus was gross enough.
Implying that her becoming sterilized shut off a section of her humanity that made killing easier because it was ‘one less thing to worry about’.
Calling her choosing to get sterilized for her job, rather than her actually having killed lots of people, warrants a “You’re not the only monster on the team.”
Comparing it to Bruce Hulking out and destroying entire landscapes.
Having Bruce forgive her for it rather than tell her ‘No, you’re not a monster,’ and making it a scene about the choices they made with their bodies - him taking the serum that created the Hulk and her having the surgery. Nope, he just makes it worse.
Having an actress who was currently pregnant cry over being unable to get pregnant. Scarlett was fucking pregnant in that scene, am I the only one who finds it incredibly fucked up?
