Personally, I don't think Vancamp is a knockout, either, but I know I'm in the minority on that one, and I'll happily and quietly remain in the minority; and god bless all of you who drool over her. Please continue to do so. The main thing I want to see from her is good acting, some decent gunplay and hand-to-hand, and some believable chemistry with Chris Evans.
For crying out loud. I'm not complaining she isn't pretty enough. I'm not demanding that she played by a knockout.
I just find her pretty without really interesting to look at.
And while Sharon isn't particularly known for her beauty in the comics, neither is Peggy or Betty Ross. And Maria Hill has been referred to as mannish.
