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

This art post kinda goes out to the daughter of Sue of dcwomenkickingass here on Tumblr. Her daughter’s a huge fan of Young Justice and has been taking it hard on this season’s direction. I hope that this weeks ep. re-affirmed her love for the show.
Mostly, I just wanted something to draw tonight and Artemis was the winnah! Plus it WAS a pretty good ep., just sayin.

Wow, this is so lovely and so kind. My daughter absolutely adores Artemis and she was very happy with the latest episode. Thank you branch56!

Young Justice #7 - pick it up!

I was very hard on the Young Justice TV show when it first premiered because of the gender diversity and portrayals in the first few shows. I’m still not comfortable with the ratio of boys to girls or how the two female characters fall into girly girl and tough girl archetypes. This, I hope, will change when the newest female character joins next season.

The show has also spawned a monthly comic which fills in the back story to some of the episodes. The October issue focuses on Artemis, and I recommend picking it up. First, it was terrific to see a young kid’s superhero comic (that’s who is supposed to be reading these …) focus the entire issue on female character (I gave it to a 12 year old girl who is now OBSESSED with Artemis). Secondly, because it drops some hints around some of the shows mysteries specifically who is Cheshire.

Don’t look too close at the page that follows if you don’t want a hint.

October Madness: contestants for match-up #4 to decide the most kick-ass DC woman

This is definitely a battle for the ages. Remember voting opens at 8am EST and closes at 8pm EST. Vote your favorite to the next round.

In this corner the woman who has held the titles of Wonder Woman, Princess of Hell, Requiem, co-leader of Themyscira and BFF of Diana.  A woman who may lack tact but is so tough she once bit off her own pony and braided it in a rope to escape from prison,

Artemis of Bana-Mighdall!

And in this corner, the woman who puts the fury in the female Furies, loves Pokemon, carries a megarod, scoffs at silk sheets and is so tough that when she is shot she doesn’t even know she’s bleeding, the miraculous love of Scott Free,

Big Barda Free.

Told you it was going to be good.

A is for Artemis a kick ass fierce fighter who once bit off her own pony tail to escape her prison. A member of the Bana-Mighdall  tribe, Artemis first came to prominence when her people attacked Themyscrira and were then forced to defend it against Circe’s demons. Her bravery made her a natural choice to compete in a contest to find a new Wonder Woman. The contest, an attempt by Queen Hippolyta to bypass a vision she had Wonder Woman’s death, put Artemis temporarily in the star-spangled bathing suit. While possessing the bravery required for a Wonder Woman, Artemis struggled in the position on a number of other fronts. Let’s just say the job didn’t come naturally to her. Artemis died while Wonder Woman thus fulfilling the prophecy. But since this is DC she came back to life after a quick trot through hell. Artemis was later named as a co-leader leader of a united Bana-Amazon tribe when the monarchy was dissolved. She played a key role in the Amazon’s attack on the US and was apparently captured and then imprisoned. She freed by Wonder Woman and Jeanette during a Secret Six arc. Artemis is one of my favorite characters. She is loyal, blunt, brave, passionate and has the best hair of any woman in DC.  I think she’d be perfect for the new Wonder Woman run. Hear me JMS? Oh, and if you want to read more about Artemis this is a really good article.

Another great “What were they thinking?” Wonder Woman moment:
Let’s have Diana stop being Wonder Woman. Let’s make Artemis Wonder Woman. And we’ll have Diana wear bike shorts.
