that awkward moment after you save the world
Steve Rogers: You know, I still don't know how to dance.
Peggy Carter: I'll show you how. Just be there.
Marvel Boy, aka Noh-Varr, was introduced to Young Avengers readers in the first issue of the series with a scene that made an explicit statement about the team’s resident spaceboy. Dancing around in black square-cut boxer shorts to “Be My Baby” by the Ronettes, he put himself on display for the benefit of both fellow hero Kate Bishop and the audience. It was sexy, but not calculated, at least not by him. Like a thousand female superheroes before him, happenstance conspired to strip him down and make him gyrate. On Gillen and McKelvie’s part, it was very calculated. Putting a male sex symbol in a superhero comic sends a clear message to the audience: “We’re not going to sell you the same old thing. We’re not going to pander to the usual crowd.”
and there’s the Australian part of Thor coming out.
fact: australians are secretly actually descended from vikings
As an Australian, I can confirm that we are actually descended from viking gods.
not only are we their descendants but they often join us for festivities and beer, like a really big family reunion.
Fred Van Lente on Black Widow’s age in the MCU [X]
I must say I have very mixed feelings on this subject. I had always headcanoned MCU!Natasha as being as old as her comic counterpart, as I loved the idea that Natasha has lived through so much history. On the other hand, a younger Natasha in no way means a less impressive Natasha; quite the contrary, as eustaciavye28 recently pointed out, to have landed herself on S.H.I.E.L.D.’s radar at so young an age she must truly have been on another level entirely.
