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

Justice League #20 Solicit Confirms The Atom now female character

When the teaser for DC’s Trinity War came out last spring there was speculation that the Atom shown in the double page spread was not Ryan Choi but a female character.

Choi had been all but confirmed as returning to life in new 52 during SDCC 2011 by Jim Lee and by his appearance on a promotional glass. Given the highly controversial way that Choi, one of the few Asian superheroes at DC was killed, the announcement was seen as a positive (you can read why I thought so here).

Today on the cover revealed for the May issue of Justice League that the Atom is indeed a woman.

While I’m always happy to see more female characters in DC, I am very disappointed that DC did not move forward on reviving Ryan Choi.

    Maybe we’ll have Rian Choi?

    Ryan’s actually alive; he was briefly mentioned as a grad student and one of the people who built/designed Cyborg’s gear...
