Be Like Clint

Minute Ninety Four: From Brain Play to Loki Got Away

Matthew Fox from the Superhero Ethics Podcast and season 4 joins us in this episode!

In the ninety-fourth minute of The Avengers

Natasha and Clint continue their conversation as Clint works through the dregs of Loki’s mind control. The bg question, of course, is why does she pour him water then never give it to him? But seriously, this minute does give us a chance to discuss Barton’s mansplaining the trauma of being under mind control to someone who’s been-there-done-that. And she gently reminds him of that. But shouldn’t he know that? We also ponder his question about why he’s here, giving it several different interpretations. There’s the debate about who’s responsible for the deaths at their hands when under mind control. Is writing it out as the mind stone too easy an out? And, of course, there’s the ever technical cognitive recalibration. Tune in!
