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

McDonald’s Happy Meals Finally Get that Girls Love Superheroes, Too!

As part of the promotion for Spider-Man 2 out this week, Sony is doing a deal with McDonalds on Happy Meal toys. I’ve had issues with McDonalds around their Happy Meal Toys when it involves superheroes - the lack of female characters and the fact they superhero toys are defaulted for the “boy” toy. This is in comparison to the Burger King which has offered toys for movies such as Thor designed for all kids.

That’s why I’m excited that for the Spider-Man 2 promotion there is a wide variety of toys offered for all kids. Sure some of in primary colors and some are in pink but they are all Spider-Man.

The idea that all children could like Spider-Man is refreshing one and I’m happy to see this.

    This is great but still also problematic. All the girl toys… Aren’t really toys. They’re fashion accessories. I was...

    Now if they would just learn that it doesn’t have to be pink to be “for girls”
