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

Some Familiar Names Return to DC Comics With Some New White Washed Faces

This week we saw the return of two pre-52 characters to DC Comics. Two characters who in the old 52 ended looked a LOT different.

Connor Hawke, son of Oliver Queen, took over the title of Green Arrow after Ollie died and became of the few men of color to headline their own book. 

That’s Connor Hawke as he appeared in the pre-52. Here’s who showed up using his name today in Earth 2.

The character, Red Arrow, was originally created by James Robinson and was clearly a Roy Harper analogue given his name, Roy McQueen.

And speaking of Green Arrow, in the old DCU Ollie used to hang out with one of the more awesome female characters that appeared in DC (and one of the few black women), Onyx Adams.

And here is Onyx today in Green Arrow

Sigh. Really? Really?

So not cool, DC. 

On the plus side we did see an awesome new Aquawoman today in Earth 2.

Bow lower Bats.
