DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass.
"... 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

Teaser for Teen Titans Go Debuts; Hope for Young Justice to Return?

The sudden and still not explained decision of Cartoon Network to pull original episodes of DC Nation off the air in October had some fans wondering when and if they would see new episodes of Young Justice return to television. Concerns mounted when DC solicits for February showed the cancellation of the tie-in comic. Yesterday, however, CN posted a teaser for their upcoming Teen Titans show stating: 

don’t miss all new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Young Justice, and new animated shorts when DC Nation returns to Cartoon Network in January!
So there is some hope that the show will return although it is not clear how DC Nation handle having four half hour shows with Teen Titans Go and Beware the Batman also debuting in 2013.

McDonalds Once Again Offers Young Justice Toys …

And once again ignores all the female characters. McDonald’s today began a promotion for the CN’s Young Justice. Unfortunately the show is currently on hiatus from the CN schedule and the fact that this promo is now starting is just more evidence of how fast the decision was to temporarily shelve the show.

The show features a number of female superheroes including Artemis, Wonder Girl, Batgirl and Miss Martian. But don’t go looking for them at McDonalds. Superheroes are just for boys and feature boys at McDonalds.

Girls get Littlest Pet Shop toys. And before you start to present your argument of why this isn’t a issue:

1. Yes, there are male Little Pet Shop pets.

2. YJ has a female audience.

3. Boys are happy to play with female characters. The next Happy Meal, Rise of the Guardians, is not broken down by gender and features both male and female characters.

4. The promotions for the Young Justice toys and the Little Pet Shops codes are slightly different:

Only boys on the left; a boy and girl on the left. In other words they specifically assume on a male only demographic for the YJ toy.

If you look back at the promo’s McDonalds did around BTAS female characters were regularly included.

Sad that it isn’t the same today.

Young Justice Character Design for Stephanie Brown

DC Entertainment Artist Jerome K. Moore has posted his design for Stephanie Brown Young Justice design on his DA page.

He wrote a bit about the inspiration for his design:

I think I may have been remembering actress Mia Sara (LEGEND, FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF) as I began sketching Stephanie’s design. Although the final result doesn’t really resemble the lovely actress, I think a trace of her doe-eyed beauty remains. As always, these color selections are my own, and may not reflect those used in the final aired version (or streamed, as the case may be).

Fun fact! Mia Sara also went on to play a DC female character; she was Dr. Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinnon the Birds of Prey live action show.

So I guess that ends the discussion of whether it was Stephanie Brown (despite her being named in the credits).

YJ’s Miss Martian gets a bigger action figure (and I ain’t talking height)

Matty Collector has announced a pre-order for a set of Young Justice figures that didn’t get a 6” figure when the figures were commercially available. (The figures were discontinued for poor sales earlier this year.) The only character to not get a 6” figure was Miss Martian aka Megan. So they are offering a two pack with a grown up Megan and Superboy.

Below is how the character appeared in the show on the left is her first appearance. And on the right is how she appeared after the five year time jump in season 2. Pay close attention to the chest area.

Yep, that’s looks like a teenager who has aged to around 20-21. And now take a look at the solicited figure that represents older M’gann.

This art post kinda goes out to the daughter of Sue of dcwomenkickingass here on Tumblr. Her daughter’s a huge fan of Young Justice and has been taking it hard on this season’s direction. I hope that this weeks ep. re-affirmed her love for the show.
Mostly, I just wanted something to draw tonight and Artemis was the winnah! Plus it WAS a pretty good ep., just sayin.

Wow, this is so lovely and so kind. My daughter absolutely adores Artemis and she was very happy with the latest episode. Thank you branch56!

We’ve already seen the promo video for season two with Batgirl and Wonder Girl joining the team. But is that in the present or the past? Because look at who is seen in images for season 2. And who isn’t in the new YJ game. Yikes!
