[♥] It should be a truth universally acknowledged
That a heroine in a major cinematic franchise
must be in want of her own damn movie.
~ Me: “Come on, Marvel, don’t be such weenies.” ~
…Ok now that you mention it, Jane Foster’s Mad Science Adventures WOULD BE A MAGNIFICENT MOVIE AND I WANT THIS EVEN MORE THAN TWO HOURS OF SCARLETT JOHANSSEN SASSING EVERYTHING WITH A PULSE.
Actually, do that as a buddy cop flick. SHE’s the world’s deadliest assassin! SHE’s the world’s most knowledgeable astrophysicists! THEY FIGHT CRIME!
…oh gods, YES PLEASE.
(But honestly, if Marvel Studios won’t make at least a short movie where the women of MCU team up to be badass in a number of unique and original ways, they don’t know what’s good for them. I mean… Agent Carter! How much proof do they need??)

• But how much longer can Ms. Marvel’s life take over Kamala Khan’s?
Don’t you hate it when there’s a perfect opportunity for lesbians and the writers just don’t?
I’m pretty sure, in his bb!venger days, he WAS a teenager who’d just had a growth spurt—he and the Maximoff twins were all like 19 when they joined up, right?
yes! i’m glad you brought this up, because it makes an interesting time scale:
cap’s kooky quartet was always stressed to be a little bit of a disaster off the bat, and not given much faith, because all the new members were pretty young (and not treated very seriously).
jarvis confirms they were all about the same age in foom #6:
and the maximoff were stated to be 19 in the oral history of the avengers:
so that puts clint at about 19-20 when he joined the avengers. although, in that same oral history, clint says tony took him out drinking right before he officially joined, but the avengers also didn’t even know clint’s name until issue #64 (which will be almost a year in our time scale), so it’s not like tony carded.
a few years ago it was stated by a marvel…editor(?) that it had been 10 years in comic time since tony first became iron man and the fantastic four went into space. this means it’s currently been almost 10 years since cap’s kooky quartet.
since it’s been almost 50 years real time, that gives us a convenient scale of 1 comic year to every 5 years. now comes the fun of age estimation.
- clint, wanda, and pietro should then be about 30 (or very near).
- janet van dyne, who celebrated her 22nd birthday in an early issue of the avengers, should be about 3 years older than them. so early 30s.
- peter parker was graduating high school when the kooky quartet started up, so at most he’s probably around 2 years younger than clint (27-28), along with johnny storm.
- franklin richards should be 9-10.
- in a recent run it was claimed that tony was 35 but that’s kind of preposterous so i’d say early 40s, or late 30s at best.
- cap is a dinosaur
with this scale, clint got married and became the leader of the west coast avengers at around 24. aaaw.
Best career advice?
emma & her own personal puddle
A sequel to the Ex-Girlfriend Club, sort of, aka I got bored and wanted to write Sara being Sara. Shado, Sara, Laurel, and Helena are the Birds of Prey (Laurel is Manhunter), and Felicity’s not entirely sure how she feels about being associated to all of Oliver’s exes. Just kidding, that’s a lie. She totally wants to be part of the club in everything but name. 956 words, Sara & Felicity, Sara & Helena, gen.
“I’m just saying, last time I visited, Helena kind of stole my car and I ended up helping thwart a bank robbery-slash-kidnapping by Laurel’s crazy ex-boyfriend,” Felicity said as they mounted the steps to the Clock Tower. “And she scratched it.”
“Laurel did?” Sara asked. The sentence had been a little hard to follow, or maybe it was the fact that she’d just pulled an all-nighter patrolling the Glades and she really wanted to hit the mattress face-first and stay that way until the world made a little more sense.
Felicity looked over at her friend and seemed to make an executive decision. Though Sara wanted to protest, the IT nerd shoved her shoulder under Sara’s arm and took some of the Black Canary’s weight herself. “You really are out of it. Helena scratched the car. I mean, I got it fixed, but…it’s the principle of the thing.”
Sara’s jaw cracked when she yawned. “You know she acts crazy around you because she thinks it’s funny,” she said, giving in and resting the side of her head against Felicity’s shoulder. “Remind me never to stay up for forty-eight hours straight again, okay?”
“You vigilantes are all insane.”
