Badass Females 2.0: Another Tribute to Amazing Women on Film

-

So a while back I made a music video with all my favorite awesome ladies from TV and film. I have since been lucky enough to discover a lot more, so here we go again!  This is the sequel.

I like to keep it for my bad days, when I need a little help remembering that ladies can kick serious amounts of ass. :D

That Spider-Woman cover is just part of some brand repositioning of the Spidey family. Haven’t you seen the new Spider-Man cover?


Actually I think this is more appealing because it’s less flat - the shapes have actual volume. By which I mean that ass is more grabbable than the original.

"Yeah, I guess that makes sense that he would be drafted, but I always liked the idea that he wasn’t drafted, you know, that he made the choice to enlist himself because I always thought that he, uh… When I read up on the comics, he was, you know, given his family background. He was always sort of following his dad’s footsteps, which would always had been in the army. So, he gave him — it kinda gave him no choice that he had made on his own to become — to be in the army, which later for me kinda gave him that angst to be unsure whether or not he wanted to be there." (x)

I like Sebastian Stan’s ideas about Bucky following in his father’s footsteps. It rings pretty true to me that Bucky would kind of consider signing up a foregone conclusion (see also: you can’t hang around Steve Rogers so much without some commitment to the good cause of your own), then got knocked on his ass by actually being on the front line and getting tortured, like “what the hell was I thinking, fuck I wanna go home”, but even then he stuck around and signed up for a whole new kind of danger because now there’s Steve to look out for too. Either way, it makes sense with the rest of what we’re shown, it keeps a little bit of Bucky’s comics backstory, which is otherwise almost entirely discarded by the MCU, and it’s something Steve and Bucky would have in common. Hell, you could even headcanon their mothers meeting through the kids and then bonding over being a military wife and a military widow, respectively, and more female character interaction is always a good thing.

Going even just “eh, maybe” about drafted!Bucky is being really nice and non-confrontational of him though, considering that no, it actually would not make a lick of sense, character-wise and story-wise. Choice - choosing to fight, choosing WHY to fight, choosing WHAT to fight for, choosing HOW to fight - is, I daresay, the defining theme in both Bucky and Steve’s stories, and the Captain America movies as a whole as a result. Even Peggy gets her share of crucial characterisation couched in terms of choice! "Why would you join the army when you’re a beautiful woman? You’ve got so many other options, so many easier options, and the men don’t even want you here.” “Like hell I’m going to sit on my arse and look pretty when I could be helping my country.” “Relax, doll, the war’s over. Us men will handle the rough stuff from now on.” “LIKE HELL I WILL.” And Sam! "You got out for a good reason." "There’s no better reason to get back in."

In no sane world would the draftee status fandom is so determined to foist on Bucky not get a single mention or acknowledgement in First Avenger, when Bucky finds his chronicaly ill, in no way fit to fight Nazis to the death, best friend’s fourth fraudulent attempt to enlist, or when said best friend is so desperate to try again he walks out on what could quite possibly be the last night they’ll get to spend together until Bucky’s corpse comes home in a casket, or when Steve finds Bucky strapped to an evil scientists’s lab table reciting the service number that caused all of this nonsense fanon, or when Steve asks him point blank whether or not he’s willing to go back into that hell with him, or when Peggy goes “he made this choice himself, and he made it for a good reason” after it turns out Bucky not only won’t get to go home alive, he won’t even get to go home in a casket, OR DURING THE ENTIRETY OF WINTER SOLDIER, WHICH IS BASICALLY THE STORY OF “THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET DRAFTED BY HYDRA”.

/broken record

/pet peeve

/opinions nobody asked for

YES EXACTLY SO SUCK ON THAT MOTHERFUCKERS

(My bigger pet peeve is that Bucky got drafted and then LIED ABOUT IT TO STEVE OUT OF SHAME what the actual fuck.)

MY biggest peeve is any headcanons made up purely for injecting more angst into Bucky’s story. HE’S A BRAINWASHED ASSASSIN. Why do you want to make his backstory even sadder!?

And this is my main beef with drafted!Bucky (and lied-about-being-drafted!Bucky).

do you ever see a character that’s worshipped by a fandom and go “you’re not that great”

I do this with characters that I like, too. Or love. Or ABSOLUTELY FUCKING ADORE.
