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

Heroclix: Batgirl is Awesome. Oracle is Awesomer

Okay maybe that’s me but today they unveiled not one but two Heroclix. The first is Batgirl. Let’s take a look:

At a certain point in the game, something happens: 

When Batgirl hits one or more opposing characters, after actions resolve, place a Promotion Token on his character card. You may then roll a d6 that can’t be rerolled and add 1 for each Promotion Token on his character card; on a result of 8 or higher, replace this character with DC10th Oracle on the same click number.”

That’s right she gets PROMOTED to Oracle. 

(embiggen) 

What smart thinking about how to view Oracle. 

I love how the card says “this chair won’t stop me.”

What more can I add to this but:

hat tip to the Mary Sue

Batgirl confirmed for Young Justice

Since Barbara Gordon was added to the cast of Young Justice earlier this season there has been speculation that she might be joining the team as Batgirl. When a preview of the Young Justice Invasion action figure was spied at Toy Fair that speculation grew. And now it is confirmed in the preview for Invasion:

Sadly it seems we won’t ever see the toy.

More DC Women good news from Fisher Price

Last week I showed you Wonder Woman’s invisible plane and Batgirl and Wonder Woman Little People on the shelf at Target.

Now Fisher Price has expanded its wheelies and added another character close to my heart:

I continue to be so pleased with how Fisher Price is bringing female characters into superhero toys, especially for this age group.

Is Batgirl joining Young Justice?

Barbara Gordon has been seen in a few of the most recent episodes of Young Justice leading to speculation that Batgirl might join the show.

Produce Greg Weisman has been closed mouth on the topic as recently as January 30.

But now there is some evidence that she may be appearing in her incarnation as Batgirl as part of the Young Justice miniseries Invasion.

Someone emailed me this image of toys shown at the Toy Fair. That does look like double figure Young Justice packaging:

And that certainly looks like Barbara Gordon as Batgirl.
