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

One More Match to decide the Most Kick Ass DC Woman

The finalists have been decided by you the voters. On Friday Dinah Laurel Lance won her match by just 7 votes to join Stephanie Brown in the finals.

This finalists survived four other matches to get here leaving 30 other characters in their wake.

They are both terrific characters.

I am saddened, however, that this tournament and particularly the semi-finals was filled with a number of negative campaigns against characters. There were posts asking that characters not be voted for or suggesting or requesting that characters be voted to ensure that another would lose to “send a message”.

I created this contest to celebrate the kick ass female characters in DC Comics. And I’ve enjoyed for the past three years the excitement and competitive spirit of the tournament. 

I do not like the negative tone that some people have given it this year. 

As you vote in the finals please remember that this contest is designed to identify the DC woman who most personifies the concept of kicking ass.

There are two excellent essays that explain why each finalist deserves to win:

Stephanie Brown’s is here; Dinah Lances’ is here

And if you ever wondered if the two characters appeared together, here you go:
