WHOSOEVER HOLDS THIS HAMMER, IF SHE BE WORTHY, SHALL POSSESS THE POWER OF THOR.

ACTUAL GODDESS NATASHA ROMANOV

I always knew she was one :D

As is so often true of comics, a lot of the awesome is in the details. Natasha can’t move the Hammer when she first reaches it. What makes her worthy at the end when she apparently wasn’t worthy just seconds before? Look at panels 2-3 again. Natasha’s got that big ogre right on top of her with his club already going back to strike … and instead of shooting it to save herself, she uses her last shot to bring down the flying reptile that’s chasing that fleeing shuttle. That act of self-sacrifice in the face of certain death is what made her worthy.

To me, the core of that attraction is that she is a better reporter than he is. Think about being Superman for a second. The Olympic record for weightlifting is 1,038 lbs., but you could lift more than that as a child. The record for the 100 meter dash is 9.58 seconds, but you can travel over 51 miles in that time. Going to Vegas? You don’t need your X-Ray vision to win at Blackjack, because you can just count the cards while holding down a conversation about nuclear physics. Without really trying, you are better at just about everything than anyone else in the world.

However, (as Mark Waid once pointed out in a podcast with Marv Wolfman) none of that really translates to your chosen profession. Typing really fast does not help your prose. Being able to lift a tank does not help you convince a source to go on record. It is as near to competing straight up with normal people as Superman would ever be capable of. Even then, it comes easily enough to him that you get a pretty lofty perch at a great paper very early in your career. It is just in this one context, there is someone better than you are: Lois Lane.

As mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent, you reach up for the first time in your life and she rejects you.

To me, it is an inversion of the Luthor story. Luthor sees someone above him and feels hate. Superman sees someone above him and feels love.

poetryondemand asked: A dude friend demanded I "name one" female superhero who could head her own movie. I gave him a list. He said he hadn't heard of any, so they couldn't be A-listers. I said Captain Marvel, Black Widow, She-Hulk are solo titles. He said they still "couldn't handle" a solo movie. I gave up. (btw he also made several factual errors that, if he'd been a girl, the other dudes would've crucified him for, but they didn't say anything.) What are we supposed to do?

Kill him and eat him in front of the others.  It’s the only way they learn. 

Reminder that Iron Man wasn’t “A-list” before his first movie.

Erm….How was Iron Man not “A-List”? He has several solo titles and is one of the main protagonists in the Avengers…. Iron Man is pretty much the definition of “A-List”

See the bit where I said “Before his movie”. He wasn’t, he really wasn’t, one of the top names before a) Ellis and Granov’s Extremis arc/reboot and b) his first movie. 

Until that point he was moderately successful, within comics, but certainly wasn’t a huge hit, and crucially, very few people outside of comic readers had any idea who he was. 

Reminder that Black Widow had a solo film in production before the first Iron Man movie, and the reason it was cancelled was her gender.

One of my best friends has been an Iron Man fan his whole life, and he was STUNNED when the movie was green-lit, because Iron Man wasn’t A-list.  We MADE these characters A-list, by loving their movies.

In another world, very close to this one, Black Widow is THE name to beat in comic book movies right now.  I want to live there.

Ant-Man is getting his own movie

Daredevil had a movie

Ghost Rider has had 2 movies

Punisher’s had 2 movies (recently, in total he’s had 3)

Blade’s had 3 movies and a TV show

These are all “A-listers”?

I bet you most people had no clue who Blade was before the movies made him a success.

They invented a white dude out of whole cloth in the movie series in Coulson, and now he’s in video games, a live action series, an animated series, and in the comics.

Captain/Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, Black Widow, etc all have more of a comics history and name recognition than Coulson who didn’t even exist 6 years ago.  People act like who gets a movie is like some sort of sports draft, and they’re being picked by their college/comic accomplishments, rather than these are fictional characters who are popular if there is the will to write them well & promote them.

Can we just bring this back to Kelly Sue’s answer which is downright perfect?

another-elle asked: Cyclops can't see the color blue because of his visor, but most of his costumes over the years have been predominantly blue. What's up with that?

My working assumption is that Cyclops pretty much just wears whatever other people hand him. It would explain a lot.

There’s this great bit of animation history: Hal Sutherland, animation director for Filmation on series like Star trek The Animated Series and Fat Albert, was colorblind and couldn’t see the color red. Consequently, he accidentally used pink in a lot of his designs (like klingon uniforms) thinking he was using gray.

My pet theory was always that Cyclops thought he was wearing a sedate, mature, dark gray suit, and never realized he was in a primary-colored jumpsuit, and no one on the team wanted to question of insult his fashion choices.

Or they just assumed it was deliberate, since blue and yellow have generally been the team colors. But: That’s BRILLIANT and hilarious.
