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

Retailer FAQ reveals transition of Barbara Gordon to Batgirl

Bleeding Cool got a hold of the FAQ that DC prepared and sent to retailers who couldn’t get to their road show. And let’s just get to the most interesting tidbit:

* Does The New 52 undo events or continuity that I’ve been reading?

Some yes, some no.  But many of the great stories remain.  For example – Batgirl.  The Killing Joke still happened and she was Oracle.  Now she will go through physical rehabilitation and become a more seasoned and nuanced character because she had these incredible and diverse experiences.

So now we know.

    A woman without a disability is “more seasoned and nuanced” than one with a disability. Fuck you, too, DC.
  16. paladinofthelosthour said: Again we have Didio now apparently contradicting what Gail said in her interview about it being an earlier version of Barbara Gordon. I hope she can talk about it soon.
  17. naomy reblogged this from dcwomenkickingass and added:
    Now the question that remains: "Were Cass and Steph ever Batgirl?"
  18. ddelphinium reblogged this from dcwomenkickingass and added:
    Seriously, DC, what’s the problem of your marketing?
  19. ddelphinium said: Oh dear. Diverse experiences. It’s not like they are applying for a job.

    DC is treating Steph like Batman treated her as Robin. She’s there just to warm up the suit for the “real” deal. :/
