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

An animated Batverse

What would an animated pre-DCnU Batverse look like? Something like this, by Maggotx9, perhaps

Some of the Batfamily by Peter Nguyen. Barbara is upfront. Like a Boss.

One big happy family.

To think I used to complain when people drew the Batfamily and had Babs as Batgirl rather than Oracle because I thought it was important people recognized that she had moved on.
Still trying to figure out how BabsGirl and Batwoman are going to be contemporaries. Or BabsGirl and the Red Hood.

One of my very favorite portraits of the Batfamily. Look at their slippers - colored coded for each member. You know that it is the Jason/Todd aka Red Hood stomping off because they are red. And look at the faces and body language - perfect in every way.

I love Barbara Gordon as Batgirl. And I love the idea of a Babs!girl teaming in a time traveling adventure with other Batgirls.
I love Batfamily portraits too. But I really dislike it when artists do a portrait and put Barbara in the Batsuit and not in the wheelchair as Oracle. I’m not sure the artist meant to send this message, but when I see this it makes it seem as if Barbara doesn’t count unless she’s in the suit. It’s not true, of course, but it bothers me.

12 Bats A-singing

Nothing says dysfuntional Happy Holidays like the Batfamily. By ~olybear.

Very, very fun!

Another Batfamily portrait. This is adorable. As mentioned below there are lots of cute details. I like Dick trying to snatch Babs’ iPhone (she probably doesn’t want him to see the text messages from Dinah ^^). And I’m always happy to see Cass and Jason with their brothers.

Sooooo I just got this commission done… by the amazing duskflare <3
It’s called Classy Batkids. I can’t get over how much I love this. And I’d asked for a lot of the little details, but I love how they show up: Dick’s Superman belt buckle (fanboy!), Babs’ Oracle ring and Tim’s GEEK LED belt buckle (which D is making fun of him for, of course) and Jason’s red guns. ~Happy, happy, happy~

The complete Batfamily!  Except for Helena Kyle. Because you know it&#8217;s true.

All the Batfamily Costumes.

You’ll want to look at this in the biggest size possible. I don’t know who did it (it looks like Benes maybe? If you know, please share   UPDATE: Mizzelle has tracked down the artist. It is a Benes. Fred Benes, Ed’s brother. And it is from 2007) but it has the Batfamily through the years in the various iterations of their costumes. It’s quite fun although I prefer Babs to have gotten a full shirt as her Oracle costume rather than what she is wearing there. Extra points for Selina leaning on Bruce on the right side of the image. I want this as a poster.

The many aliases of the Batfamily

This made me LOL - especially Timmy via TheSpunkyMonkey

I think I just had a cute overload

Batfamily meets cute animals. via mom1995577. Alfred and Oracle are my favorites.

I needed something to make me smile this morning and this did it. Especially the looks on Damian and Alfred&#8217;s faces (via poison-harley)

DC 30 Day Meme Day 4 - My favorite family

This wasn’t very hard. I love the Batman family. I love Bruce and his boys. I love the brothers being brothers. I like Steph and Damian sniping. I love Babs and Dick forging a new relationship. And Tim and Steph coming to terms with their relationship. Cass and Steph being sisters from another mister. Helena content with her role after years of being on the outside looking in. What don’t I like? Cass getting the shaft. Jason being turned into a nut job. Oracle ditching on her “kids”. Bruce when he’s all grim and grimmer instead of a real dad.

Can the Batfamily ever be functional? Maybe. I’d recommend giving Alfred a larger sway over things, but then I think Alfred should be running parts of the government not just the Batfamily. So here’s to the Dysfunctional Bunch. And another look at them as suggested by Fabian Nicieza in this month’s “Red Robin”. And because I am reusing content (told you), I am also adding a parody of the Brady Bunch theme song. For those of you who were deprived of the Bunch growing up you can click the video at bottom to hear the tune.

Ready? Ahem:

Here’s the story of a man named Batman

Who takes in teenaged boys he hasn’t bred

So sad they never lived all together

Because the middle one took a crowbar to the head

 

Here’s a woman, a former Batgirl

Who also likes to play the mother hen

As Oracle she has Birds and Batgirls aplenty

So many she should do head count once again.

Now this Oracle and the Batman

May butt heads but when there is a crunch

They’ll grimace and bring their teams together

to converge into the dysfunctional Batsy Bunch

 

The Batsy Bunch, The Batsy Bunch

Fighting crime (and Alfred) make them into a family - the dysfunctional Batsy Bunch.

This always cheers me up. I never quite stop LOL at the card pass between Tim and Babs. I had this as wallpaper on my Mac for a few months.
