Power Girl is returning to the DC Universe with a simple premise: “Stranded on our world from a parallel reality, Huntress and Power Girl struggle to find their way back to Earth 2.”
Normally companies do market research before they launch a new product, but DC has hired Nielsen to administer an online customer satisfaction survey following the New 52 launch. Hey, at least they’re DOING market research.
Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass writes about her love for The Wall. “Amanda was different than other female characters. She had power. She never played by the rules. She had her own agenda and did not suffer fools gladly.”
What is this shit, I don’t even.
Superhero comics excel at making female heroes look foolish. Case in point: Supergirl’s new costume for the 2011 DC reboot.
From DC’s The Source, July 29th: “Over the past week weâ€™ve heard from fans about a need for more women writers, artists and characters. We want you to know, first and foremost, that we hear you and take your concerns very seriously.”
DC fans asked the DC brass some tough questions at this year’s SDCC regarding their failure at diversity, and Dan Didio responded with his trademark belligerence, while certain panelists reacted with ignorance and appalling comments (like Matt Idelson, Superman editor, letting slip that he thinks Lois Lane is Superman’s “trophy wife”).
One woman in particular became famous for asking Dan Didio the questions we’ve been discussing for weeks now, questions the all-male panels and largely male audiences didn’t want her to ask – to the point of screaming at her to “sit down!” Read Sue of DCWKA’s Interview with the Batgirl of the SDCC “DC New 52″ panels. It’s marvelous.
