Now ussually when you go into the movie theatre, or comic book store, or living room to watch tv you expect for a guy to kick all that asses and for the women to get captured, be a plot device, or something of the sorts. I personally find that women are the most bada$$ thing to ever happen to pop culture. Black Widow has been a good character since the start no matter how much her accent and orgin has changed (Iron Man 2). One of the reasons why I almost stopped reading comics was because women were become straight sex objects and plot devices. The crazy thing is that you don't need to be pretty to kick total a$$ ( Ellen f*cking Ripley). Although, going around in a tight suit and kicking a$$ is fine with me ( Power Girl).
