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

DC Favorite Couples Tournament: Canon - Round 1 and 2

Today’s the first day of voting in the DCWKA Favorite DC Couples Contest (dum dum dum!) And because it involves shipping of characters it is already shaping up to be a fustercluck of fan wank. Or just fun. YOU DECIDE! So before we begin some clarifications and background.

Over three days on Twitter and Tumblr, I requested people to send in their three favorite couples both canon and non-canon. I received hundreds of responses. Those were tabulated. A few of you have asked about the canon and non-canon specification. Basically, if characters existed in the DCAU and DCU, their DCU relationship took precedence. Extrapolate as you wish.

If you don’t see a couple in the tournament, it is because they did not receive as many votes as the couples that are in the tournament. It’s that simple; there’s no bias. Requests for couples were made over Tumblr and Twitter reaching 10s of thousands of comics fans. All votes were recorded and counted (and counted and counted). No bias, here.

And now the rules. One vote per person. Let me repeat that. One. Vote. Per. Person. Voting is open until 8PM EST. As you can see it opens early too so everyone should have a chance to vote. There are 24 couples in the canon contest and 10 in non-canon. You can see who they are here and their listing isn’t a reflection of the number of votes they received.

All set? Let’s go!

Two matches today, both canon. There are fewer non-canon so that will start tomorrow.

In this corner:

Kate Kane (Batwoman) and Maggie Sawyer!

vs.

Thomas Black/Catman and Helena Bertinelli/Huntress

VOTE HERE

And!

Barry Allen and Iris West

vs. 

VOTE HERE

May the odds be ever in your favorites favor!
