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 ..."

Wait wait wait. Why is it okay that Cheetah references all the old versions of the character, but not when Huntress does it? Helena went from Wayne, to Bertinelli, to now Wayne again, and they threw a shoutout to Bertinelli Helena at the end of her miniseries. I'm generally curious, what makes one okay but the other?

I don’t see the comparison at all. The Cheetah is a supporting character for Wonder Woman. She never had her own mini-series and never appeared in an ongoing title. She had two IDs pre-Crisis and one post Crisis (Barbara Minerva).

Helena Bertinelli appeared consistently in comics for 25 years (as opposed to Helena Wayne who appeared for 9 years) She was a co-lead in Birds of Prey and had multiple mini-series devoted to her as well as appearing in several major Batman arcs.
