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

DC Reveals First “Girl Robin” of the New 52 and She’s Not that New

The New York Post has the exclusive about the much expected news that Batman’s next Robin would be a girl. But it’s not Harper Row. Nope. It’s a female character that has worked with Batman before and is a fan favorite.

Yes, it is Carrie Kelly from the out of continuity The Dark Knight Returns.  Tomasi says to the Post:

“What you’ll find out once you crack the book, is that she’s not exactly the ‘new Robin,’ but I don’t want to spoil the story and her introduction into Bruce Wayne/Batman’s life,” Tomasi said. “In regards to how long she’ll be around, let’s just say that it’s a helluva lot longer than ‘one issue.’ I’ve got plans for Carrie that play well into the future.”

Not exactly, huh? 

So let’s break this down!

Female Robin: YEAH!

Female Robin who has a fan base: YEAH!

Female Robin from an out-of-continuity story set in the future when there is a perfectly good character who could play THE EXACT SAME ROLE sitting on the “bench” - WTF, indeed.

And you all thought that “toxic” stuff was bullshit.
