I'm on Volume 3 of the Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes DVDs
where they introduce Mockingbird (yaay)
her costume has wings which glide!
wings, but no leggings.
I'm getting really *very* creeped out with how they animate Black Widow, and now Mockingbird. They get special treatment no other character gets. And by special treatment I mean butts.
After I noticed how they were framing Natasha (from behind, close up, butt crack wiggling on a black catsuit) I spent the rest of the episode checking for other butts (yes I know how that sounds shush serious crit is serious) and no, nope, no other butts, except for Mockingbird.
Guys do not have behinds. Let alone behinds in skintights.
Black Widow and Mockingbird mostly
And it's really jarring compared to the quality of some of the other animation. Sometimes facial features don't even make sense, they're kind of awful in off moments, but someone went through lovingly animating every line of the butt wiggles.
Creeping. Me. Out.
Yes I am fully aware of how comics do this kind of thing. I just... really? Everywhere? This now? Blergh.
I admit it makes Widow a lot more mysterious, since there's only so much you can learn about someone from that angle, but really
I am liking the plots.
And they don't do this to every female character. Carol and Jan wear actual clothes so far.
It's just once I notice something I keep noticing, and, creepy.
In other news it's cute how Tony still thinks he's the leader while everyone else ignores him more and more.
Also I was vaguely pondering how Hawkeye in this 'verse starts out as a SHIELD agent and Black Widow's partner. Like, compared to the MCU. EMH Clint mentions the circus, which is more backstory than we have on MCU Clint. EMH is 2010 and Thor with brief Clint cameo as SHIELD agent is 2011. While in 616 he was an Avenger first? Variations.
Here it's mostly so he can make pouty face about Widow betraying him and remain deeply perplexed about it and also be rebellious against two completely seperate organisations, SHIELD and the Avengers.
He's stubborn and not quite bright, but good at thinking sideways for his job, like tactics stuff. Also funny and quippy and brave.
... the way they draw him makes me think his nose is on upside down, it sticks out weird like here
, it's unfortunate, and then there's the pointy mask on top of that.
But the stories are all making a complex universe full of conflicting motivations and they're quite fun.
