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 ..." -Nerdbastards.com

Children Being Fed Classic DC Continuity!

As I was shopping last week I noticed in the aisle devoted to children’s “fruit” snacks (i.e. gummy candy with fruit juice) that there was a new addition.

I’m not surprised to see new Superman merchandise given there is a big budget movie out this summer, but, as you can see this, this Superman is not wearing New 52 or movie costume but the classic costume.

Oh, look it’s Lois Lane. 

I’m not quite sure why Kellogg decided to channel Lois ala Kurt Schaffenberger ala Jackie Kennedy with the pillbox hat, but let’s not be picky; it’s Lois Lane.

So three of Superman, one classic logo and the Daily Planet and one Lois Lane. All so iconic they don’t even have to be identified on the box.

I found these in Stop & Shop which is a popular chain here in New England. I’m not sure what other chains are carrying them.
