    And she is incredibly hard to care about. Between the "nothing for nothing" (eliminating sacrifice for other's good as a motive) and the fact she seems to kill more often than the Joker on vacation, she feels more like a villain than a hero.

Regretfully, my take from this too.

    Pushing a strong female character is a good thing. Give her own series, put her in the Avengers, and make her Marvel's answer to Wonder Woman. That would be great, but the problem is, she is basically a stone cold killer with the thought processes of a mercenary.

Certainly not an Avengers' ideal candidate.

    Thor has been willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good of others literally hundreds of times. He has shown mercy many times. Those things make a hero. (Why he is unworthy is ridiculous, but I digress)

It's a good story element to include him in the premiere.


    I am going to give Gillen the benefit of the doubt for now that he will weave a story that leads to redemption or other major change in the very fiber of her being. But it better be good to make me feel different about her.

Sounds reasonable - for the opening arc.
