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 ..."

DC says Superman canned due to kitten love; what would DC do to Wonder Woman?

So DC did a quick change on today’s issue of Superman #712.  The story was broken this morning by Jill Pantozzi of Newsarama. Then Chris Sims over at CA got to wondering if, just maybe, there were some last minute concerns with a Muslim character being featured in the issue so soon after the controversies about the French Muslim Batman, Nightrunner and Superman renouncing his citizenship. But then Rich Johnson at BC said it wasn’t a Muslim hero that caused the story being canned, it was Superman saving a kitten. Can’t have that in the “grim and grimmer” new world of DC.

The sad part? Based on what goes on at DC I could believe both stories. And that says something right there.

But if the problem is superheroes with kittens, here’s a kittenrific one (art by the wonderful Steve Rude).
