TSBranch’s Superheroic Redesigns

You might recognize the style of Tsbranch from their fancasting of a New 52 Outsiders, DC Comics’ occasional superheroic covert ops team, as an all female group. The lineup was so awesome from a diversity standpoint that it was immediately obvious that it was not something that would come out of DC these days: with Wonder Woman, Batwoman, Rene Montoya as the Question, Starling, and Scandal Savage, the five person team included two women of color, three lesbians and one bisexual woman. It also unbenched two fan favorite female characters who have not, so far, been reintroduced into continuity following the reboot.

So yeah, lets check out some more of their art.

Happy Belated 15th Birthday, The Powerpuff Girls!

Okay, we admit, we missed this one. The fifteenth anniversary of the original air date of the first episode of The Powerpuff Girls was last Monday! SalBa Combé and some friends got together and created this tribute to the show’s opening sequence.

One more year and the show will be able to get its learners permit. Anyone care to mention another American action cartoon where all of the action leads were women since? Anyone care to count the number of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, alone, in the intervening years? Yeah, I don’t like to either. Happy birthday, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup.

Everyone Relax: Marvel Universe Live! Will Feature Female Characters

Many fans were not pleased a few weeks ago when a press release about Marvel’s upcoming live show, Marvel Universe Live!, mentioned zero female characters. However, Marvel has finally announced that the show will feature a number of female superheroes and villains, including Black Widow, Madame Hydra, Maria Hill, Black Cat, and Captain Marvel. I’m still annoyed that whoever wrote that initial press release didn’t see fit to include Natasha with the rest of the Avengers, but at least she’ll be there to kick ass.

Little Girl Saves Mom From Choking Because of Mrs. Doubtfire

Well, okay, it was also some stuff her grandfather taught her, but I’m not sure what’s more remarkable in this story, that a seven year old girl managed to perform the Heimlich maneuver on her mother, or that Mrs. Doubtfire is still relevant to seven year olds.

Ms. Marvel on the Colbert Report

The Colbert Report
Get More: Colbert Report Full Episodes,Video Archive

Stephen Colbert is a notably giant nerd, but call me a cynic: I didn’t think the news of a new Ms. Marvel would ping on his radar. Of course, I’m quite happy (and amused) to be wrong.

Tiny Princess Thor Is Cuter Than You Will Ever Be

Remember Tiny Princess Captain America? Well, this Halloween, the miniature hero took on another famous Marvel character, Thor. Her aunt, who made both costumes, said on her Tumblr:

Tiny Princess Captain America finally outgrew her dress, so this Halloween, it was time for her long-promised Tiny Princess Thor! I think she might like this one better…it has a sparkly cape, after all. Also a hammer.

We love your costume, too, Tiny Princess. The Tumblr post also includes links to help you replicate the costume so you can have a Tiny Princess Thor of your very own.

There’s a New Ms. Marvel, and She’s a Shapeshifting Muslim Teen From Jersey City

Kelly Sue DeConnick‘s much lauded Captain Marvel series heralded the beginning of a new stage in the life of Carol Danvers. In the absence of her friend Mar-Vell, she took on his superhero name: no longer Ms. Marvel, she was now simply Captain Marvel. Of course, that leaves the name of Ms. Marvel hanging empty, and Marvel Comics has just announced how they will be filling it.

Jeff Lemire to Create Superheroine Inspired by Real Teen Activist

When DC announced that the fallout from its Trinity War and Forever Evil story events would result in the Justice League of America moving to Canada (aside from some obvious jokes), Canadian comics creator jeff Lemire said that he’d be creating a brand new superhero for the team, one that “reflects a real part of our cultural identity, who could be a real Canadian teenager.”

CBC has the news that not only has Lemire decided to look to real Canadian teens for inspiration, he’s chosen one teen in particular: Shannen Koostachin, a teen activist of the Cree Nation who fought for the rights of First Nation children to be provided with safe and comfortable schools.

Six Year Old Girls on Their Own Skate Team Are Cooler Than You

Relz Murphy, Sierra Kerr and Bella Kenworthy are skating up a storm as the Pink Helmet Posse, and don’t ever tell them that girls can’t skate. The girls even have a website with skating tutorials, and their own line of boards for girls. Kerr and Kenworthy are the kids of skating professionals, while Murphy was enrolled with her siblings in skateboarding school by her parents.

“Watching your 6-year-old daughter hit tile in a 13-foot bowl, that is pretty cool,” says her dad, “but watching her confidence grow—not just with skating, but in life—that’s even better. If that’s all she ever gets out of skating then we’ve succeeded.”
