“Useless,” they said. “Just there for sex appeal,” they said. “What do you mean she’s saving the day,” they said.
I will shank the next person I hear try to tell me Black Widow is useless.
I. Will shank them.
Imagine how hard it is to keep up with people who have super powers and super suits. Not only does she “keep up” but she holds her own, she doesn’t need to TRY and keep up with them, she just does. She goes toe to toe with Loki, and on a mental battlefield none-the-less. There is no doubt that even if Loki “packs a punch” as Cap puts it, his real power is his intellect. Black Widow takes him on and she wins.
Then during the big battle it’s HER that makes it up to the teseract, by hitching a ride on one of those fucking insane Chitari chariots and taking control of it. Imagine doing that when you don’t have a suit that lets you fly, or a serum that gives you super strength, or the powers of a god. She doesn’t even have Clint’s bow and special arrows, which he can clearly use to stop him during a fall.
Black Widow does it though, she does it and she ROCKS IT. Rocks the fuck out of it.
Haters can hate, but Black Widow is a total badass and nothing will change that fact.
