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.

"... 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

October Madness: One of these Elite 8 is the most kick ass woman in DC Comics

The tournament to decide the most kick ass DC woman started with 32 women and is now down to just eight with Renee Montoya’s loss today to Oracle. And what a great set of women enter this round:

By the end of tomorrow two of these women will be eliminated and two will move on to the Final Four. Which two will win and which will lose? The first two match-ups will be posted at 6:45 EST.

Results: October Madness Semi-finals: Match-up #7 PLUS News about Next Round

Today’s match was never in doubt. When it comes to kick assery and the question of whether mother knows best, the answer is

No. Cass Cain wins this round.

Now an update on the next rounds. Tomorrow is the final match of the Semi/Sweet 16’s. By 6pm EST a winner will be declared in the match between Oracle and the Question. I will then post the match-ups for Tuesday. That’s right, match-ups. Tuesday and Wednesday will have two matches running concurrently. By Wednesday night we’ll have the four competitors for the Final Four matches. Those two matches will be fought on Thursday and Friday, one each day.

By end of day Friday we’ll have the final two competitors decided and on Monday November 1 the final match will take place. (So yeah, no matches on Halloween weekend.)

This is just a heads up. I’ll remind folks again through out the week.

Results: October Madness Semi-finals: Match-up #6

"Diana, Diana, Diana." I wish I could say this was a close match but it was not. It is clear that when it comes to the sisters Wonder, Diana is the Marcia and Donna the Jan. So Wonder Woman moves on to the Elite Eight. But before you go, two things. First you might want to read this profane and amusing soliquoy by Donna on her life and loss by the always delightful Fuckyeahwonders.

And secondly a reminder that tomorrow is Wonder Woman Day. There is a wide variety of Wonder Woman pieces up for bid  on eBay. The proceeds go to support programs for victims of domestic violence. So many states and cities are cutting back on programs and private funding has to fill the gaps. Here is a chance to get some wonderful art and help a great cause. This beautiful piece by Alex Ross of the winner of today’s match currently has the highest bid.

And come back for another family feud tomorrow, when Cass and Shiva battle for a chance at the Elite 8.

Another battle of Gotham women although one took a hard traveln’ road to get there. I have to admit, people, this one is very painful.

Batgirl, Stephanie Brown.

In the other corner, a woman who grabbed her second chance to become the hero she knew she could be. A woman who is one of the top martial artists in the world. A woman Oracle has on speed dial (when she doesn’t have to, you know, just nudge her…)

Another day of heavy, close voting. Two admirable women who bring well needed representation as well as kick assery to comics. But only one can move to the next round and that woman is

Amanda Waller. Aren’t you glad you don’t have to tell her you didn’t vote for her?

Results: October Madness Semi-finals: Match-up #2 

It was wonderful to see some much enthusiastic campaigning for two awesome women today. I hope to see as much tomorrow when Mia Dearden faces off against Amanda Waller. But in the end, only one woman can move on to the next round and that woman is

Lois Lane.
