When The Avengers hit theaters almost two years ago, a lot of people made fun of Hawkeye and Black Widow because they were regular human beings teamed up with a super-soldier, a man in a flying metal fighting suit, a giant green monster with unimaginable strength, and a god. And it’s true that Hawkeye seemed like he existed primarily as a plot point, but Black Widow, now, she kicked ass and showed some serious depth as a character.

If you’re still skeptical, try thinking of Black Widow this way: She’s an human being without super powers. She’s an amazing athlete with serious expertise in several martial arts. She dresses in black, and wears a belt. She sometimes uses gadgets. She’s incredibly stealthy. Some seriously bad things have happened to her in the past. She doesn’t always exactly follow the law. Sound familiar?

I’m not saying that the Widow is precisely a female version of Batman – there are many obvious differences, most prominently her use of guns and willingness to kill. But I’d be willing to bet that most of the people who scoffed at the Widow’s presence in The Avengers would never dream of saying anything of that sort about Batman. The fact is that Black Widow, as portrayed by Scarlett Johansson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a terrific character who absolutely belongs with the more conventional superheroes.

Nowhere is this more evident than in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Black Widow has a much bigger role in this film than she’s had before, and you get to see just how multifaceted her character really is, as well as see her kick some more very serious ass. In movies, she’s the best argument there has been so far that calling characters like her “female superheroes” or “superheroines” is just silly: she, and they, are superheroes; the fact that they’re female really isn’t relevant.

Paper-thin solar panel turns print ad into a smartphone charger
If Forbes magazine can offer free wifi through a print ad, it stands to reason that other useful technologies could be embedded into publications. Sure enough, the Solar Ad Charger campaign has utilised a paper-thin solar panel to provide Brazilian beachgoers with a portable phone-charging device. READ MORE…

Genius.

CAPTAIN AMERICA’S ‘THE WINTER SOLDIER’ TO-DO LIST IS DIFFERENT AROUND THE WORLD

Disney has long been known for how meticulously it localizes its movies for countries all around the world (for proof, here’s a video of Frozen‘s “Let It Go” in 25 languages).

Apparently, the company has applied that approach to its Marvel Studios output. Reddit user DavinderB has tracked down 10 different screenshots of Captain America’s list of things he needs to learn about to catch up to the 21st Century in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and depending on the country where the movie’s being shown, the list is different.
