As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice. (x)

Oh fuck you guys fuck I have seen this reblogged a bunch of times but it only just now clicked for me another way that this is important.

Pierce says “Are you sure you’re ready for the world to see you, as you really are?”

In MCU canon, Natasha is whoever someone needs her to be. She’s a chameleon, and arguably, until we get a Black Widow movie, we aren’t going to see who she actually is because she’s always filtered through other points of view. We see the Natasha she presents to the world.

Pierce asks if she’s ready for the world to see her as she really is but that implies she knows who she really is, or that there’s even a specific self that can be revealed. At the end of the movie Natasha doesn’t say that she has been revealed, she says that all her covers are blown, that all her deeds are revealed. But neither of those are who she is.

The mistake Pierce makes is thinking that Natasha is made up of her past and her aliases. But Natasha’s strength is that she’s more than that, she transcends that. They’re a piece of her, but they’re not all she is, and she knows that. Even if she has to go out and figure out exactly what that means, she knows that she’s a person beyond that.

Fuck yeah Natasha Romanoff, is basically what I’m saying.

HE BROUGHT IT ON HIMSELF

I actually found this pretty depressing because when Happy asks her if she’s boxed before, she looks so proud of herself when she says she has, and then he just kind of demeans her response by suggesting that she wasn’t a real boxer, and you see her face just drop

Natasha Romanoff: professional to an extent.

She’s professional the whole way through — Happy is the one who isn’t just stupefyingly unprofessional but vicious in his attempt to punch her when her back was turned.

Literally. He tried to punch a woman he’d just met, before she’d gotten any gloves, before he’d explained anything else to her.  Fuck anybody who thinks that Natasha’s treatment of him (which is so obviously instinct and training, not a desire to humiliate him, unlike his violence toward her) is unprofessional.

nslayton:

Captain America didn’t “share 40’s values” – a reductive label assumes that everyone alive in 1940 was either a racial bigot, a misogynist, a homophobe, and an unthinking militarist, and handily ignores the people of color, women, gays, and left-wing activists who were hard at work to change American society for the better – he exemplified from the beginning the ideal that America could be. Thus Steve Rogers led the Invaders (a multispecies and multinational Allied superhero force) into Europe to fight fascism, he fought with Nick Fury’s Howling Commandos, a racially integrated fighting force from the beginning, and  fought with the French Resistance rather than snidely repeating anachronistic cheese-eating surrender monkey jokes.

Thus when Captain America is unfrozen in the 1960s, he’s not freaked out by the changes in racial progress – instead, he forms an instant partnership with one of the first black superheroes, the Falcon, who movie audiences just met for the first time, and the two of them go toe to toe against an insane imposter Captain America who’s obsessed about communists under the bed. The analogy cannot be more pointed: the real Captain America stands for racial equality and civil liberties, the Captain America who believes that the government needs to “smash” reds by any means necessary is a fraud. In the 1980s, Steve Rogers runs into a childhood friend, Arnold Roth, who happens to be gay – and Steve Rogers defends his friend from bigoted violence, because Steve Rogers is a good man.

It’s the 4th of July, Independence Day for the United States, so this seemed like a good thing to repost. If Captain America is an embodiment of what it means to be American, then he’s a progressive, altruistic person, and that’s what the US is at its best.

The same is true for Superman. If Cap is the city boy experience, Superman is the immigrant story, raised in the rural parts of the country who came to the Big City not to dismiss it as “un-American” or anything like that, but to use his powers to help others.The two most American characters aren’t militant, jingoistic xenophobes who follow some Randian idea that might makes right and there’s some “true” kind of American. They’re about helping others and fighting corruption. Altruism.

So, happy 4th of July! Here’s to freedom, justice, equality, community, and altruism. And down with hate, xenophobia, greed, and the anti-intellectual idea of “‘murika.”

A woman (first photos) is asking for Marvel actors to show their support for her dad who has cancer. So far today, Jeremy, Cobie and Chris have showed their support along with some others. Hopefully all the Avengers take part!

This moment killed me - never in a million years would it occur to Phil to consider himself equally as important as any of the Avengers, not even touching on the possibility that he might even be one himself.
