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

The Brilliance of DC Comics’ Marketing Synergy!

Man of Steel is the biggest non Batman superhero hit movie they’ve had in … I don’t know how many years. And the movie did really well in the demographics drawing in a demographic of 44% women. Compare that to Ironman 3 whose opening weekend had an audience that was 31% female audience.

Most people attribute much of that bump to Amy Adams playing Lois Lane. If you’ve seen the movie you know that it keeps to the canon as far as their relationship since before the mishegas started in the new 52. The kiss the two shared was shown almost a year ago at SDCC so I’m not spoiling anything.

So in the brilliant marketing synergy that is DC Comics, today they announced a new Superman book. Oh wait, make that Superman/Wonder Woman. Hitting in October and exploring the “budding relationship” according to IGN.

SYNERGY!NOT!

Wonder Woman, the most iconic female superhero in comics, finally has a second book for the first time in 61 years and it’s second billing to her boyfriend and in a book where she’s making out with him on the cover.

I said it when the first announced this relationship and I’ll say it again - they are boiling down this character to a romantic interest for a dude. Why can’t she have her own relationship in her own book? 

My head and my desk are unfortunately today in a relationship as painful as the one below.
