I did not expect that comeback.

[♥] It should be a truth universally acknowledged
That a heroine in a major cinematic franchise
must be in want of her own damn movie.
~ Me: “Come on, Marvel, don’t be such weenies.” ~
why is Jane foster in this like she did something?
alright everyone pull a chair up because it’s learning time.
jane foster is every bit as important as these other ladies. she may not have the martial arts skills that natasha has, the warrior fierce moves of lady sif, the nitty gritty punching fists that peggy has, so on and so forth, but that doesn’t mean she’s any less valuable.
if you really want to, you can argue that she did nothing in thor. i’m not particularly inclined to agree with you, but the argument can be made that she didn’t save the day in thor. however, that argument does not hold true for thor: the dark world. jane might not have been punching people and smashing hammers around, but jane foster literally saved the world in thor: the dark world.
first off, she’s a brilliant astrophysicist. she’s one of the only scientists in her field who’s pursuing the idea of the nine realms and asgard and all that good outer space shit. she’s pushing forward on a career that’s pretty tough to get into. anyway, she’s done all this research and work on it, and because i’m kind of a dumbass when it comes to science, i can’t outright explain to y’all the fine details of her research. (watch the movie again—they execute this more beautifully than i ever could.)
but i digress. jane has done all this research and work, and she’s got those damn poles, but you know what, it’s her idea to use the poles and have darcy and intern boy place them in strategic spots (she knows exactly where she wants them) that she knows will work and have the effect she wants. thor’s smashing shit, and mjolnir’s freaking the fuck out because it can’t find daddy, but jane is doing her science thing.
would thor have defeated malekith without jane’s science help? i don’t know. it’s hard to say. the optimist in me wants to say yes, but i honestly don’t know. maybe he would have, but maybe he wouldn’t have. however, i do think that without jane’s help, more destruction and chaos would have taken place. without jane, thor very well could have lost the fight, and then THE DARK ELVES WOULD HAVE TAKEN OVER. but with jane, thor managed to stop them.
was jane out there punching people and swinging hammers? no. but she saved the world with her knowledge. and you know what, jane foster is a perfect reminder that you don’t have to have a black belt to save the world. you don’t have to have perfect aim and the best sharpshooter skills the world has ever seen. you can save people with your brain and your honest to god smarts. (and you can look gorgeous as fuck while you do it.)
jane foster belongs on this gifset because she’s more than earned her spot here. jane foster, you are a lady of marvel, and you are a hero.
Let’s stop assuming that women are only useful and strong when they beat people up, okay? There are so many kinds of strength, both for men and women. Jane Foster is EVERY BIT AS VALUABLE as the other wonderful ladies of this gifset.
And that, ladies and gentlemen is precisely why I included Jane.
