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.

"... 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

Meet the new X-Men (Who are All Ladies!)

So that teaser from Marvel last week with Brian Wood and Oliver Copiel was indeed an all lady X-Men. That’s a nice line-up, Storm, Psylocke, Kitty, Rachel, Rogue and Jubilee. I would have added X-23 but she’s stuck in Avengers Arcade. (Wood wanted Emma Frost but she wasn’t available).

Brian Wood is the perfect writer for this and not only because he’s basically been writing an almost all female X book for awhile. You can read more here.

It’s a pretty fantastic interview but here’s what stuck out for me:

Wood also promises to bring a lot of relationships, love and sex into the book, “in the classic X-men way — the way it used to be.”

He wants to challenge the double standards that have been in superhero books for years, were Wolverine can sleep with anybody but if a female character does it twice, she’s promiscuous, which Wood sees constantly online.

"To everybody’s credit, these people are often shot down immediately for being sexist and unfair, but that is a very common thing," Wood says.

"We’re just going to do it. We’re not going to worry about that. If Kitty or Rogue has basic human bodily urges, tough luck (to those opposed). To me, that’s as much of the X-Men as anything else."

Amen, brotha!
