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

Favorite DC Couple: The Case for Harley and Ivy

I asked for guest posts making the case for the finalists for the Favorite DC Couples matches and reader Natalie Reed sent me this on Harley and Ivy. Her thoughts follow:

Before I begin, I suppose I should admit a slight bias: I’m not entirely of the opinion that Harley and Ivy’s clandestine tryst was precisely “non-canon”. More like “quasi-canon”. Or “deutero-canon”. Or “scholarly confirmed apocrypha”. And if you go by the whole Word Of Authorial God theory, it was straight-up, well, canon (at least for a given value of Paul Dini’s godhood; and regarding Harley’s infamous statement that her immunity to Ivy’s toxicity was granted so they could “play” together).

Basically, unlike the vast majority of non-canon ships, whereby fans go out seeking sexy (or not-so-sexy) subtext between two characters who seem to pair well together, what was going on between Harley and Ivy was, as often as not, just plain old text. The writers planting those seeds (no pun intended) weren’t simply toying (no pun intended) with us, they were quite deliberately implying a relationship there, and moreover implying a relationship that had a pretty meaningful impact on the story. And on at least one occasion I can think of (Ivy’s confrontation with Harley in Arkham during the finale of Gotham City Sirens), those seeds bore fruit, and became a meaningful, climactic element to the narrative.

Favorite DC Couples Tournament: Final - Non-Canon Couples

It’s down to just two couples! Lots of you had questions about what made a couple canon or non-canon in the tournament and I’ve answered them a few times but what better time to clarify than the finals? The rule was if a couple appeared in both the DCAU and DCU their status in the DCU took precedence. Hope that helps!

Anyway on to the two finalist couples where the subtext and text are barely distinguishable.

Kick Ass DC Woman Tourney: Sweet 16, Match 1

And we’re back with the next round! Yesterday I posted the list of the women who made it into this round if you haven’t been following the tourney.

As I said, this is only going to get harder.

And here is today’s first match, and it is a battle of red heads from the Bat-verse!

Hmm, that really doesn’t narrow down the list that much does it?

Okay, in this corner a woman who kicks ass and leaves her logo doing so

Kate Kane, Batwoman!

and in the other corner, a woman who “leaves” her enemies wishing they’d not run into her

You can vote in this tournament here

Voting ends at 8:30PM EST.

Meet the new villains of Birds of Prey v.3

David Macho who coordinates art work for a number of DC artists including Jesus Saiz has tweeted out artwork of the characters who will be the “the new villains” of Birds of Prey. DC has been pushing the idea that there will be new bad buys in the DCnU. And here is the Birds of Prey characters known as the “Cleaners”

Okay. Very pretty Ivy.

As I said earlier this week, I really hope DC starts promoting this book over the next month. (Issue one drops September 21).

Black Canary is a very popular character with a long history. I would think they would want to try and leverage that as much as possible.

Dustin Nyguyen’s Poison Ivy. I really like this piece, it’s a different look for Dustin. Ivy’s face and figure are both fuller that she’s usually shown.

You can download it from DC here. Here’s a page - things don’t look good for Ivy. And Tony Bedard is still writing not Dini as in the solicit.
