Every time I watch The Avengers it bugs me so much that Black Widow is using a hand gun in the final battle.
A fucking HAND GUN!! How is that even helpful? It has, like, 12 bullets and then you have to reload? AHHH, someone give her an AK-47 or something. At least something that makes her more of an equal to the rest of the group. This really bugs me.
No, see, you got it wrong.
Black Widow uses a handgun so the rest of the group can catch up.
This is the woman who PLAYED the god of LIES, mischief, and TRICKERY.
Like Beethoven. On a PIANO.
She doesn’t need a bigger gun. Did you see what she was shooting at? Weak points, eyes, important vital bits. One bullet each did the trick. Also notice the BRACELETS she has made out of extra AMMO. And let’s not forget that it was she who went and got to the portal and deactivated it.
And that she did this entirely without super-soldier serum, high tech armor, elemental god powers, or gamma radiation.
Black Widow is scary and amazing and awesome. And she will end you with her little guns.
Yeah… I saw that and I was like… Sweetie, what are you doing? That is the wrong caliber for this situation.
She even stops to strap on her wrist things, which in the comics are an auto-loading “gunless gun” type thing. My theory is that they somehow feed ammo into the guns, even though it’s difficult verging on impossible to figure out how.
