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
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..."

DC Names the Best Villain Team

DC Comics has declared October Villains Month and over the last few days was running a contest to pick the Ultimate DC Comics Super-Villain Team. 

But I was a little surprised at the categories. Let me be more specific; I was a little surprised at how few women were in these categories:

Wait what about Cheetah?

Wait what about Hera? Giganta? Veronica Cale?

Wait, what about Poison Ivy?

Wait what about Shiva? Or Waller? Or Cheshire? Or Scandal? 

Okay, so the Ventriloquist could mean Peyton. But when you are talking about crime bosses who better than the head of the League of Assassins and Leviathan? 

So as you can see there poll was a little, um, male centric. But don’t worry there was an opportunity to vote for a female villain as they made a whole category just for women:

I’m kinda amazed that Killer Frost was on this list.

If you do assume that Ventriloquist is Peyton than only one other category had a female character was this one:

I assume that DC was attempting to ensure one female was on the team. So that’s great, however, I don’t get why the majority of women were placed in one category and the other categories were filled with all male nominees.

Anyway the team has been named and you can check it out on DC’s home page.

    Years later and women are still pigeonholed into the ‘femme fatale’ archetype. As if that’s their entire identity. Whoo!...
