August 25, 2013 11:33 am First arc pushed me away. There were some cool moments but neither the art or the story overwhelmed me. I don't have the funds to hope that it will become coherent sometime in the future.
August 20, 2013 11:03 am I love Storm and Rogue in this. Kitty Pryde and Psylocke are also interesting. A Domino or X-23 cameo would be fantastic.
August 20, 2013 10:57 am Best bromance ever. I'm liking how they are doing missions in teams of two and I'm looking forward to the next Forge/Dr. Nemesis heist.
August 12, 2013 6:29 pm I'm saying a fantasy medium is sexualized on both ends. And that poses and costumes are window dressings. What would offend me is if the characters were sexist or dressed out of character. They are not and don't. Your insistence that heels and boobs are sexist is what is actually sexist. Because those things don't prevent them from saving the day. These characters are near and dear to me and as long as they keep being smart, brave, and capable I don't give a flying fuck what they wear and I won't pass judgment on them based on what they wear.
August 12, 2013 4:31 pm Heels make you taller ie more intimidating. They can also hurt you if kicked in the face. Maybe they hold a batarang, maybe they propel her forward. There are just as many functions to a fictional heel as there are to a fictional cape. And the doctor/lawyer comment is referring to the practicality of heels in any profession. There is none. Women in the WNBA don't have smoke bombs or batarangs either. Neither do policewomen. Please explain to me how heels are sexist. Do they draw attention to Batgirls sexuality anymore then showing off Thor's guns? What's wrong with a woman wearing heels? Nothing. What's wrong with a fictional super hero wearing heels? Nothing. Should Batgirl not show her red hair either? Is that too provocative? If she was in a burka would that be more appropriate? And artist draw huge bulges on men all the time. There arms bulge, there chest bulges, there butts are right there in your face, and there crotches are frequently highlighted by yellow underwear. What you are saying is that heels are sexualized on female super heroes. That they are not practical. That females in the real world don't wear heels to play basketball. What I'm saying is that heels are a type of shoe. They are not practical. And Batgirl is not and should not be based in the real world. And her heels say nothing about her that a doctor wearing heels says about her.
August 12, 2013 3:20 pm Because a woman wearing heels is a very poor example of sexism. Wearing a cape is equally unrealistic for fighting crime. It could snag on something, someone could grab it, it can get in the way while fighting. But! Batman looks cooler in a cape! Its not sexist. Its a visual medium. You're nitpicking about heels! There's no practical reason for any woman to wear heels! Ever! Yet, women still wear heels all the time. Doing all kinds of things. Doctors wear heels, lawyers wear heels, my Mom wears heels. Heels mean nothing! You're just putting way to much weight on how a woman dresses. And my point is that THAT is sexist and not the heels. Your argument is that they dress like whores so they are whores so that's sexist. They aren't whores! They are women wearing heels. The only things heels denote is that a woman wants to appear one or two inches taller. How grounded is a man flying around in blue and red spandex?
August 12, 2013 2:35 pm Thank you for speaking for everyone. Haha. End of discussion? Really? Why did fans demand the boob window back? Do you honestly think anyone reads Worlds Finest based on the boob window? Yikes. I doubt your logic.
August 12, 2013 2:29 pm Really, I heard since she was going to L.A. She would be featured one month and Clint would be featured the following month from now on. Please show me these women who don't like looking at a chiseled body and a sexy girl. I'm guessing as a man you speak for all women everywhere? All the fan girls I know like the sexy guys and the sexy girls in their fantasy fulfillment medium.
August 12, 2013 2:22 pm I know right? Morons like me who realize that comic books are a visual medium filled with over the top and unrealistic things. I always assumed Power Girl has the boob window in order to distract idiots and bad guys who only focus on tits and ignore her true strengths. She would wear it dummy, she's wearing it right now. And yes, how someone dresses sometimes signals how they want to be viewed in the REAL WORLD. Not in a fantasy medium. As a gay man I don't really gawp at her tits. I notice them and am really impressed but it doesn't tantalize or distract me. Its a fictional character. Although some of those Cosplay girls are super impressive in their Power Girl costumes. I guess they to feel her costume is "wrong" and horrible. Or maybe, just maybe they do feel that the costume is hot and they want to feel hot too. What are your thoughts on women dressing as their heroes?
August 12, 2013 2:02 pm Well, her and Clint Barton are now sharing the Hawkeye title. And my response would be that all characters in comics are dressed inappropriately.
