When I first created this post I was still a month and a half away from seeing Avengers: Infinity War. Of course, since then, we have had three new heroines join the party; Captain Marvel, Wasp, and Pepper Potts, meaning this list needs an update pronto. Enjoy my new ranking of the Marvel heroines!
15. Agent 13
I didn’t realize how much I liked Sharon Carter until it was announced that she may play a role in the upcoming Falcon and Winter Soldier series on Disney+. I was legitimately excited. At that moment I realized just how much she had grown on me over the years. I would probably place her higher if she wasn’t against such stiff competition, hence the last place on this list.
14. Agent Peggy Carter
I like Peggy because she isn’t just a pretty face. She’s also tough, strong-willed, and she proved that she was more than just a love interest/damsel-in-distress. I appreciate that. It’s a shame that she only made one major appearance in the franchise in Captain America: The First Avenger but she definitely won me over.
For the first time in my weekly segment of Fan Art Wednesday, I will be sharing a collection of work from artists around the world and their fantastic fan art for franchises that I love. So, with no further delay, here is this week’s Fan Art Wednesday. Enjoy!
So, I just recently watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (a.k.a GOTG Vol. 2) and I was skeptical. I had heard a lot of reviews and not a lot of them were good. A lot of people said that it was decent but not nearly as good as the first one was. And then there was a choice few who said it was pretty entertaining. So when I watched it for the first time I didn’t know what to expect.
I had already had a bad impression because of all of the advertising for the movie. It was like everywhere I looked there was GOTG…and this was months before the movie was even supposed to come out. A lot of times when movies are advertising heavily way before the movie comes out (like Batman vs. Superman) the movie usually isn’t good. So that was already a red alert. And then the content they did show wasn’t that great looking. The first GOTG had me interested from the very teaser that long time ago at the end of 2013. This one…not so much.
So the movie started and I was just hoping it wouldn’t be as bad as Ant-Man because that was a pretty corny Marvel film. (I actually like Ant-Man nowadays which is hilarious.) And then the movie ended. And then the very next day I watched it again because there was so much going on I just had to make sure I got all of the itty-bitty details. And now I’m here, writing this post, and I hope you enjoy. Continue reading Movie Review Flashback: My Review of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’→
Why do we love Marvel movies? Is it the storylines, the phenomenal action, or is it the superheroes? It’s probably the superheroes, right? But what is it about these heroes that we love so much? Of course, we love their superpowers but if a hero looks wack then that superhero’s going to have a hard time grasping our undivided attention. And that’s why for the next few week’s segments of Who’s Your Favorite? I’m tackling the topic of outfits through Marvel, Star Wars, and DC Comics. I hope you enjoy! 🙂
(This post will stick to Marvel heroines that are only in the MCU. That means no X-Men or Deadpool characters.)
The Ancient One
The Ancient One isn’t awesome just because she’s a powerful sorcerer but her yellow robes make her stand out in the most appealing way.
And the hood’s pretty awesome too.
Nakia is of the River tribe, hence her green clothing. Her Wakandan warrior garment is feminine yet fierce and perfectly represents Nakia in the most exciting way.
And for formal events, she’s breathtaking in this beautiful dress that’s still vibrantly representative of the Wakandan river tribe.
Gamora, like Thor, has had one of the most tragic stories in the MCU. As a little girl, her homeworld was raided by Thanos and she was forced to watch her people, including her family, perish before her very eyes. Then she had to endure Thanos’ cruel upbringing as he turned her, through terrible training, into the “most dangerous woman in the galaxy.” But eventually, when she found it opportune, she managed to escape Thanos’ clutches, hence running into Peter Quill, Rocket, and Groot; three individuals that would essentially become her adopted family a.k.a the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Gamora’s story has been very intriguing and thankfully, due to the events of Avengers: Endgame, she has returned to the MCU in a strange but effective way that should be fun to flesh out in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Until then, however, let’s look back at her role so far in the MCU. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Version of Gamora?→
Remember The Avengers? It was 2012, Marvel Studios was about to release their most audacious undertaking yet, and the only female Avenger at the time was Black Widow, a fact that never escaped me. Fast forward seven years and the number of powerful women in this franchise is nothing short of fascinating.
And what makes it even greater, it’s a diverse array of female heroes to cheer for, meaning every girl can find someone they identify with.
So, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite?, I thought it would be perfect to have them be the topic for this week. Enjoy!
If you told me years ago that Pepper Potts would end up becoming an Avenger I would’ve laughed. Turns out, it actually happened and I couldn’t be happier.
Black Widow, a Russian assassin turned S.H.I.E.L.D agent turned Avenger, has one of the most compelling stories in the MCU. A story that will only expand and become more interesting next May when we finally get to see Black Widow.
