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.

"... 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

Is there a surprise villain in Flashpoint!!???

DC’s unveiling today of the Flashpoint world map raised some eyebrows and blood pressures with their depiction of Africa.

But in the controversy the strange lack of alliance attributed to another continent was undiscussed. I suspected at first that this continent might become the stomping grounds of a Flash rogue, but now I think it may be the target of another DC villain.

The map states that Australia is neutral.

But anyone familiar with the Donnerverse of Superman knows who has first dibs on that continent.

    Its been confirmed to be Grodd ruling Africa good call on Australia

    I know this is about Grodd or whatever, but just looking at this map feels racist.
