Yes, the MCU has gradually come around in its representation of women and I love how you highlighted some great characters. One of my personal favorites that wasn't mentioned here is Melinda May from the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series. She reminds me of the Black Widow--deadly, skilled, and no-nonsense. I wish they would do a prequel on her story! I look forward to seeing the Black Widow's movie.
