Read and stumbled onto some articles about MCU's Secret Invasion series relating to Maria Hill's death.

Example: https://www.ign.com/articles/secret-invasion-failed-maria-hill

Apparently, critics were upset about Maria Hill being killed off unceremoniously compared to that of Tony Stark and other male characters, and accused this of being an example of the "fridging" trope - "a woman is killed or injured to push forward the narrative of a male character and their development".

The argument goes that:

  • The younger Cobie Smulders back in the 2010s served as mere eye candy standing next to Nick Fury and lacks any important role to the plot.
  • Now in her 40s, she's rightfully portrayed as middle-aged as seen in Secret Invasion, also reflected in her dress sense.
  • So she's of less value in making Nick Fury look more important, so she's killed off to bring impact to Fury's own plot.

Do you agree? Discuss.

Secret Invasion treated Fury's character far worse than Maria Hill. Does that make it an example of Hollywood Misandrism?

Maria Hill's death in the Secret Invasion series was an example of Bad Writing. That's all for me.

CV is a notoriously sexist site, this thread is a sight for sore eyes. Even Ms Marvel got rekt in the Spider-Man comics and people were too obsessed about Peter getting cucked
