Fondling a Templar’s sword in Ironclad (2011)


"steve rogers is so boring"

"captain america is only interesting when he’s a prick"

"captain america doesn’t even have any powers why is he on the avengers"



This has made me think…if the lie-detector had worked on Nat, and Fury had known it had worked…I don’t imagine she’d have been kept out of the loop in Cap 2. Just, if Ward’s going to ‘beat’ it I want to know Nat has first.

Yeah, that’s a good point! I really want to see how Ward pulls this off if he beats the machine, whether that’s through sabotage (although I don’t know if he has the technological or biological knowledge to pull that off without help from Raina, Fitz, Skye or Simmons? We haven’t seen any indication that he can do it by himself, I don’t think) or by being a truly excellent liar. I’m not really here for this Gary Stu ‘Ward is better than Romanoff! You know this because our most evil character is telling you so and God knows he has never told any lies or pretended to be psychic!’ nonsense but I could buy it as long as Natasha beat the test or was found to have been lying but Fury suspected she had let herself get caught, which would explain why they doubted her in Cap 2.

I know the premise of the film was ‘trust nobody’ but still, if SHIELD actually has accurate and infallible truth serums and lie-detectors then the plot of CA 2 falls apart at the seams because all it would have taken is one person asking Pierce “Yo, are you yourself secretly evil?” - or, in the dystopian timeline, Pierce asking Steve “What did Fury give you, and where is it?” - and everything would have collapsed, so I err on the side of Coulson was lying about the truth serum/the machine can’t be infallible. Ultimately (unless Skye goes online and finds that Fury mentioned the test results in one of the files Natasha just released) I think that the technician’s ignorance is the only canon statement we’ll get about Natasha.

The whole Ward thing is giving me flashbacks to Ming-Na being asked on twitter if May could take out the Black Widow and her ‘Like on a date? :)’ answer, and I just want the writers to understand that flirty competitive spy girlfriends would have been so much better than Ward’s Gary Stu-ification; that is the kind of rivalry SHIELD should have been encouraging amongst its agents.

Oh and as well as competitive spy girlfriends (Victoria Hand watches the competition from the sidelines, and no one notices, but boy is she smirking) I was totally there for the gentle ribbing and ‘our bar is better than yours’ of Sci ops/Operations rivalry.
