The Avengers: fails the Bechdel Test

The Avengers  is an entertaining movie.  It however fails the Bechdel test.

Recall what the Bechdel test is: The movie has to have (1) at least two named female characters,  (2) who talk to each other (3) about something other than a man.

The Avengers has three named female characters.  However, they do not talk to each other.  A feminist critique is here.
