Have you seen Captain Marvel yet? If not, you should! Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything. During Women’s month, there’s one notable hero that I wanted to reflect upon. I have been looking forward to this movie for a year now because let’s face it, us women don’t get many superheroes in movies. We were graced with Wonder Woman’s movie in 2017. Now, we get to experience another wonderful and powerful hero in Captain Marvel. The things that I love about this character in this movie is that her personality was not surrounded by a male presence nor a love interest. Not that those things are bad, but often the impression we get in reality is that a woman is not complete without a man around or she’s not complete if she’s not falling in love.
Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel is a military woman turned powerful hero. Throughout the movie, her mentor continues to downplay her emotions stating that her emotions are the reason why she can’t beat him in a fight. Finally, there’s a scene where she reveals just how powerful she is, but he challenges her to prove that she can beat him in hand to hand combat without all of her superpowers. However, she doesn’t take the bait. She blasts him, and exclaims, “I have nothing to prove to you.” It’s this line that summarizes the female experience. A lot of times there are those of us who may feel like we have to go the extra mile to prove that we are strong enough, smart enough, & brave enough. Do we have what it takes to show the world that women can be leaders? Often we are told that our emotions make us too ridiculous and unprofessional & therefore, unable to lead-well not like the guys. However, this sets up this paradigm that says that men aren’t emotional and that emotions are bad. Both are not true. In this moment of being baited, Captain Marvel was finally realizing inside herself that she is enough and has nothing to prove to anyone. The only one truly holding her back was herself. What would you do today if you believed that you had nothing to prove to anyone?
