Quote: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.
Quote: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.
Quote: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.
