DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass.
"... 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 ..." -Nerdbastards.com

Huntress is on Arrow Tonight; New Interview with De Gouw

For those readers who mourned the unceremonious passing of Helena Bertinelli in the new 52, there is some joy. Tonight on the CW, Jessica De Gouw joins Arrow for two episodes as Huntress. While like everything in the DC TVverse vs. comicverse there have been some changes, a new interview with the actress shows she is aware of and researched the comic character (as well I suspect the version of Huntress from CW’s Birds of Prey)

I went back to the comics,” she said. “I think the comics are the best place to start. That’s where it originated. That’s what the fans want to see. That’s what I wanted to go for. I don’t think it helps to impersonate someone else who’s already done it perhaps. Because this isn’t like anything else. It looks different and it feels different. And it’s a different tone.”

She adds that the character enters with a punch and is “a force”: 

She’s a force. She’s a force of nature. And not only the Huntress but Helena is pretty sassy in her own right.”

The episode “Muse of Fire” debuts tonight.
