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

Though Bruce is still Sad Bats over his parent’s death even in his new #1, Babs couldn’t be happier about getting her walk on.

With the rumors coming out of this DCU reboot, I knew I was going to start seeing images like this. And it bothers the hell out of me.
As we learn more over the next week, I’m sure there will be people  absolutely thrilled if Babs is back in the tights. And there will be those  who are equally as upset.
But please remember for many people that chair on the left is something they will never leave.
My mother used a chair for the last years of her life. (I think that’s part of my strong feelings for Oracle, I won’t lie.) For the real-life Oracles, there isn’t any walking away smiling because of magic “get out of the wheel chair” cards.
Please I don’t want anyone to go after this artist. They are talented. I just want people to be aware that there are some sensitive areas around this, if indeed, DC goes in this direction.*

* and if they do then there will be a post the likes of which you can only imagine.
