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)
2/? Badass Fictional Women: Nyota Uhura
"It was thought to be a terrible kind of turn-off to the public, to have women in command positions of any form…it was already a big number for them to even say that Uhura was fourth in command…And then it was a big enough jump for them to have a black woman in such a position. It was a breakthrough in two areas, you see - although once they gave it to me they strangled me; still the breakthrough was made. And now, ten years later, it would be inconceivable to perpetuate that kind of chauvinism." - Nichelle Nichols on her role in Star Trek
“I am not a people person. It’s not that I am shy, but I am more comfortable in an atmosphere of one-on-one. I hate crowds and parties."
