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.

... 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

Question: guess who has TWO Heroclix?

Heroclix is debuting their Streets of Gotham packs and these two caught my eye:

Technically it isn’t two, just two versions; when you order one you’ll either get her in her civvies or in costume. See the rest of the entry here.

HeroClix: Here’s Your Batgirl, Inc.

I’ve said before that Wizkid’s HeroClix is my favorite DCU right now and here’s another reason. We may never see a team-up of all three Batgirl’s in comics beyond the panel below in Batgirl vol. 2 #24 and numerous pieces of commissioned and fan art.

But now you can have it playing HeroClix which unveiled today it’s newest piece:

And with their previous unveiling of BabsGirl and BlackBat, you can have all three (and if you are a real stickler you can order a Cass as Batgirl)!

And can I just say the fact that Stephanie’s character has Electro-Magna-Gooperangs makes me so happy? Hey, I just did!

Why Heroclix is Quickly Becoming My Favorite DC Universe

Heroclix who gets why Oracle is so great also gets that there is more than one Batgirl. Today they introduced their newest Heroclix:

Remember her? Daughter of Batman? Had her own comic for 5 years?

Yep, Cass Cain the second Batgirl and last known as the Batman of Hong Kong, Black Bat may be missing from the new 52 but she’ll soon be seen on gaming tables.

Here’s a look at the card and you can read more at the Wizkid’s site.

Not sure of the availability, but my guess is late November or early December.

New Heroclix: The Invisible Jet

I’m loving all the new Heroclix that are coming out this year (like these two which I have on order. Best be getting to that too, folks).

But I am a little puzzled by the announcement of one of their newest Heroclix: the Invisible Jet. We all know the Invisible Jet belongs to:

Wonder Woman, of course.

But this Heroclix:

Is  promoted on Wiz Kids this way:

It’s really true. EVERYTHING is about Batman.
