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

Young Justice, it’s not just for boys!

Except when it is!

Thanks to the tip from “dan” I found out what the next McDonald’s toy promotion is:

You know when Taco Bell did their Marvel kids meal promotion, they did it as a unisex give away. And when they did their DC Comics 75th anniversary giveaway - unisex. And when Marvel did their Iron Man promotion last summer? Unisex. (I have the Black Widow bracelet to prove it). And McDonald’s does unisex giveaways too usually for big summer movies.

But for Young Justice? Nope. No, Artemis. No Miss Martian. No kick-ass Black Canary. Just the boys. All boys. No girl superheroes here.

Nope. It’s Littlest Pet Shop for the girls. And Young Justice for the boys.

I know the producers said “we want boys and girls" as viewers. Well, guys, guess what? I know you don’t control these thing but this promotion really isn’t helping that.

A Young Justice unisex promotion, however, would have.

  20. crhodey said: Speaking from experience, they probably didn’t have a choice. McDonalds is probably the one that demanded two different sets of toys. A lot of times the creators of the show have as little control over it as the fans do.
