SORT BY Relevancy
On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Avengers: Age of Ultron! Is it as goods as the first one? Could it possibly be better than the first one? Is it simply more of the same? Could it be the MCU’s answer to ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ or ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’? Is it time for Marvel Studious to update its formula and further diversify its output? Should they move beyond the realm of Superheroes and start telling different kinds of stories? Are general audiences finally beginning to show signs of the dreaded condition known as “superhero fatigue”? Have these characters grown stale, or are they evolving before our very eyes? Will Joss Whedon’s departure adversely affect the MCU? Can the Russo Brothers hope to reach the bar he has set? Join us as we explore this latest edition to the MCU canon!
This week we review Avengers: Age of Ultron the sequel to Marvel's smash hit. Joss Whedon is back at the helm as well as the cast of the first Avengers. Newcomers Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson take on the roles of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Tune in today at 1:30 PST to find out if Marvel will continue to decimate DC at the box office.

Are women portrayed reasonably in fiction or is it a reflection of our current society? Does fiction display the social pressures placed on women or does it create caricatures? Whose fantasies are women characters written for? Are women in fiction written to be the fantasy of men or of women? What things do writers do that transfer the woman into caricatures?
Do women need to be rescued in fiction, even if she is an action heroin? How is it handled in crime stories? Fantasy? Other books? Games?
Why do women in fantasy have to be armored inappropriately in chainmail bikinis? Are women in fiction a female trope first?
How are women portrayed on book covers and movie posters? Why do they have to be portrayed as “ideal” woman? Why are women “underdressed” in comic books? Is making a strong female character only putting a man in a skirt? How do you show the real woman? Does a strong woman have to kick butt in the story or are there other ways to show the character’s strength? What are the kinds of strength that can be shown other than kicking butt?
Is it necessary for a strong woman characters to fall in love with the strong male characters?
Are bad female characters—the woman caricatures a result of malice writing or a result of lazy writing?
