    about The Dark Knight but how you presented the Avengers movie is highly misleading. None of the Avengers really trust SHIELD with good reason and Fury manipulates the situation to his advantage over and over again. The audience isn't taught to trust SHIELD. It's taught to mistrust it and its tactics. The entire point of the movie isn't just that the Avengers are checks on the galactic threats. They are also checks on our own government surveilence state.

    I don't think Joss Whedon, a bona fide progressive writer, would appreciate you misrepresenting his work like that.

    Why do I have the feeling George W. Bush joined the Stonecutters, ate a mess of ribs, and used the Constitution as a napkin?
