My Top Ten Favorite Marvel Female Characters: Updated

Marvel has a lot of characters and all of them have their own charm. To write these sort of ranking lists pertaining to the MCU is so much harder for me than something like Star Wars because I love so many of the characters but for now, I’ll give it a go. Enjoy!

10. Agnes

WandaVision' Broke the MCU's Reality and It Was Very On-Brand

Agnes a.k.a Agatha Harkness was an instant favorite of mine when she waltzed into Wanda’s life in the first episode of WandaVision and as the series continued and the mystery only deepened she only became more and more fascinating.

By the end, when she revealed herself to be a witch by the name of Agatha Harkness I just really, really enjoyed the character. I’m so relieved that they decided not to kill her off because I want to see her again in the future.

Ranking the Marvel Heroines; From Worst to Best: Updated

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.

Captain America: Secret War (TWENTY-FOUR)

Silverware clinked and glasses thumped against a gorgeous wooden dining table as Natasha, Nick Fury, Agent Hill, and Shuri dug into a simple Wakandan dinner. The nearby wall was made entirely of glass, providing a view of the city in all of its glittering glory in the night time. Steve Rogers stood at the window, his arms crossed and his jaw clenched. He couldn’t eat. Not with this much worry on his mind.

Queen Mother Ramonda and General Okoye also did not participate in the brief repast, choosing to stand and grimly oversee the heroes’ chance to recharge.

The tension was thick in the air as everyone filled their empty bellies but didn’t speak. With every minute that passed, Dr. Frost’s reign only grew stronger. And at the moment they had no idea how to handle this threat. In fact, every single one of them, excluding the Queen Mother, had barely survived their encounter with the metal-levitating antagonist.

General Okoye abruptly nodded at the Dora Milaje guards standing at the entrance of the room and with a respectful dip of their heads they left.

“I think it is time to discuss the problem at hand,” she said. Continue reading Captain America: Secret War (TWENTY-FOUR)

Captain America: Secret War (TWENTY-ONE)

“Breathe, Sharon. Keep breathing,” Steve urged as he stood beside her, holding Sharon Carter’s slack hand and gazing at her lightly bruised face.

Natasha, piloting the Quinjet, hadn’t said a word since they had zoomed away from London. Even Nick Fury and Agent Hill were expectedly resolute in their actions as Sharon’s chances of survival lessened with each passing minute.

As Steve continued to watch Sharon he couldn’t help noticing the weak heaves of her chest. She didn’t have much time.

Steve’s gaze rose.

“Natasha, how far away are we?”

“I’m not sure,” Natasha said, gazing at the African countryside.

The comms suddenly crackled to life and they heard General Okoye’s voice on the other side.

“We are at Wakanda’s borders. Follow me.”

Natasha became startled as she watched a Wakandan craft materialize out of thin air in front of the jet before turning across the gorgeous plains of Africa. She looked down and saw an African man in bright blue waving as he rode a horse. A group of children followed him, their bright smiles visible from the Quinjet as they waved and cheered. Despite their tense situation the sight made her smile.

Captain America: Secret War (NINETEEN)

Natasha Romanoff climbed the stone wall, hurriedly reaching the top and pulling herself over the bridge just as the Quinjet arrived. Natasha looked to find Steve and saw him huddled next to what looked like Sharon Carter who lay prone on the street. Sam Wilson was standing guard before the both of them and Dr. Frost was currently preoccupied with…

“Is that…?”

“The Wakandans. Yes,” Agent Hill answered as she hurriedly approached Natasha.

Natasha turned. “What are they doing here?”

“I called them,” Nick Fury replied as he stood on the ramp, his gun drawn. “This is a threat, unlike anything we’ve seen before. The Wakandans have offered their services to the world and I made use of that offer.”

Agent Hill ran past Natasha to Steve. When he saw her relief crossed his features.

Who’s Your Favorite Female Avenger?

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!

Pepper Potts

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

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.
