DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth

DC Video Shows Azzarello, Morrison, Chiang and Johns Talking about Wonder Woman

During NYCC, DC gathered Wonder Woman’s current creative teams to get to talk about the character. For a short piece it has a lot of interesting sound bites. Azzarello says that her strengths are “her compassion … and her muscles”. And he says that’s her weakness as well.

Chiang thinks she’s at her best “fighting Nazis” an her weakness is :she cares too much.” Johns says the “wonder” in Wonder Woman is isn’t that she is super strong but the Wonder she brings out in looking at the world. Morrison says a Wonder Woman is “a great fish out of water story” where you have a young girl who has never seen men “but can pretty much kick all their asses.”

There’s much more. I was pleased to hear previous writers of the character mentioned. There a lot of other interesting thoughts so give it watch. Do you think they get Wonder Woman? What did you like hearing? What didn’t you like?

And on a side note, I hope to see another one of these in a few years in which there is at least one woman in the talking heads line-up. A girl can dream, right?
