She stripped off in her very first scene, Xavier mind-****ed her to erase her memories and in her last scene her superiors treated her like a moron.

Much as I hate Hill in the comics I'd rather she retain her clothes, her credibility and her dignity in the movie. Happily, Marvel Studios has done a great job of presenting interesting, strong women, even to the point of building characters up from the comics versions. I hope they continue to do so.
OMG, again, Xeno... co-signed. Hard. This is also why I have some issues with other CBMs that shall heretofore remain nameless. I love MCU's female characters. Especially Pepper and Peggy. The filmmakers and actresses found ways to build female characters who are formidable in their own right. Since I adore Cobie Smulders and Joss Whedon and how he writes females (most of the time) I have high hopes for Hill in The Avengers.
