Evil Bald Dude: I’ll be the first to admit that my past endorsement of Norman Osborn was… foolhardy, Captain America. I didn’t have all the facts. But you should consider that perhaps the same is true for the Black Widow. She used to be an enemy of the state. Your enemy. And you really think she just… turned good? Noble? She’s a former Russian spy. The very best that program ever produced. My experts call her the most dangerous woman in the world. The Black Widow, running circles around men and woman who possess ten times her strength. She led the Avengers, for God’s sake— without super-powers.
Bucky: Your pitch needs work. As far as I’m concerned, these are all positives.
Clint: There are some things a suit like you won’t ever understand. Like trust, trust in battle. Trust when the chips are down. The kind of trust that lets you put your life in another person’s hands. A person like Natasha.
Natasha’s tracked tag is starting to sound a lot like Evil Bald Dude. Don’t be Evil Bald Dude.
