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

The many faces of Superman’s Perry White

Last night, news leaked out that the role of Perry White had been cast. Here’s a look at Perry in the past and the newest face to play the role.

I think Laurence Fishburne will be a great Perry. That the Superman movie has some race blind casting is good news because, given some spoilery pictures this week,The Dark Knight Rises, may be white casting another character.

I’ll also note that Fishburne’s casting came the same day Marvel unveiled the newest Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales a biracial male teenager.

The reaction I saw to Marvel’s move was generally positive, but a quick perusal of the comments on USA Today showed there are still dumb ass, racist people ready to spew their bullshit.

And not just in big mainstream papers but in the comics press such as the Beat who actually had to close comments.

And sadly the comments [warning some nasty stuff] on Entertainment Weekly show the Laurence Fishburne news has attracted the same kind of folks.
