Raise your hand if you’ve joined a fandom because you saw it on Tumblr.
Raise your hand if you’ve completely avoided things because of the fandom you saw on tumblr
Raise your hand if you know enough about a fandom to be in it because of tumblr, but haven’t actually watched the show/read the book/etc.
I need more hands
Peggy is the one to get stuck in ice in and survive the century. Pepper doesn’t get rid of Extremis and becomes Rescue. Bruce Banner stays under the radar leaving Betty as the authority in gamma radiation. Jane retains some of the Aether’s powers. Thor is busy ruling Asgard, therefore Sif is the one tasked to retrieve the Tesseract. Director Fury rounds them all up along with Black Widow for his Avengers Initiative and, Barton being compromised, Maria Hill steps up as the marksman of the team.
tldr; the ladies save the world instead

Seriously, though, Melinda May walking away in The Only Light in the Darkness was one of the greatest moments we’ve seen on television all season.
In the past few episodes, Melinda May’s made it clear how much Coulson means to her, how watching Coulson’s back is the cause, how she will fight and fight and stand her ground rather than see him hurt again. We see her fight through being shot, through being belittled, through having her own care thrown back in her face. We see her realize she’s lost the battle when Coulson tells her to follow his orders or find somewhere else to be. And rather than stay in that toxic environment, rather than continue to be belittled and hurt and humiliated, she chooses to find somewhere else to be. She packs up and walks away.
She may have stayed for Coulson, but she walks away for herself, and that is what separates loyalty from blind devotion - she is loyal on her own terms, and not anyone else’s. She refuses to sacrifice her dignity, her emotional wellbeing, her own integrity, because she is her own woman first, foremost, and always, and when push comes to shove she walks away rather than have that compromised.
See, the thing is this: when we first meet Melinda May she’s the epitome of the soldier that trusts the system over herself, she’s the person willing to lose herself to save the team, she’s the person who’s put her faith in Coulson because she trusts that he will use a perfect soldier well. Her walking away is not just walking away from Coulson, it’s walking away from the ruins of a broken system that she had trusted more than anything. The Melinda we first met would never have walked away - but this Melinda, the one who has found faith in herself, who has become sure of her own worth and her own integrity, who has come to trust herself to make the right decision - this Melinda walks away.
(She does look back, though, and I loved that she looked back, because it was so human.)
There’s a reason airline safety videos tell you to put on your own oxygen masks before helping others - and that is exactly what Melinda May did when she walked out. You can not save others if you yourself are suffocating. This Melinda puts herself first, saves herself first, takes the time out to regroup before helping everyone else. This Melinda realizes that she is her own anchor, her own light. This Melinda refuses to be lost in the fire - this Melinda is going to forge her strength in it and rebuild.
AoS has done a lot of things wrong, but this moment - this moment in a season of TV where so many women have been belittled and disrespected and fridged by so many narratives - this moment just really did something to lift me up. It’s just… to think that we got to see Melinda May walking away on her own terms, saving herself, finding strength in herself - what a gorgeous moment of character development, and what a triumph it was, too. Melinda May is an absolute gift.
