I’m watching the Avengers movies again and really love Agent Phil Coulson. He expresses true strength and power without any posturing or chest beating. In the scene in Thor when Coulson takes Jane Foster’s equipment, he shows understanding and compassion for her frustration, knowing that her actions are no threat to him. He almost always maintains that little smile that says, I don’t have to push you around to control you.
He is the exemplification of real strength. The kind of strength that doesn’t need to show itself. The kind of strength that just is.
