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

Superman: no parents, no wife, no flying, no costume

Newsarama is citing sources at DC that the Superman story is getting heavily rebooted in the DCnU.

  • A return to Ma and Pa Kent being dead
  • Lois and Clark aren’t married. In fact they were never married. I called that one
  • A change in status quo of the Daily Planet and Lois job there. (Want to be bet she’s the editor?) Also she has another boyfriend.
  • Superman will be “more Kal-El from the planet Krypton than Clark Kent from Kansas.”

There will be two Superman titles each telling the story of Superman at different times.

Action Comics will have him starting out. This is the book where he’ll wear the tee-shirt for a costume and have limited powers so no flying.

Superman is set later. This is where the Daily Planet play a role.
