    Great Hera!

    Husband and wife team Meredith and David Finch have not yet taken over DC's Wonder Woman title, but already they've made headlines for an awkward interview. At San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, TMS Editor-in-Chief Jill Pantozzi gave them the opportunity to elaborate on what they meant, and on what changes we can expect to see when they take over for Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chang in November.

  4. Comic-Con Exclusive Interview: Pedro Pascal Gives Us His Take On Game of Thrones Gender Roles

    Three cheers for "feminine f***ing power!"

    As you might have already read earlier today, Game of Throne's Pedro Pascal was at an Ommegang beer launch party at the WIRED Cafe at San Diego Comic-Con last night and told our Editor-in-Chief, Jill Pantozzi, that he's read The Mary Sue. She's obviously much more professional than the rest of us, because she managed to work through the excitement and shock to ask Pascal some quick questions about his take on the gender roles in the show.

  6. A Frank Discussion of Game of Thrones‘s Rape Scene And Its Epidemic of Sexual Violence

    The Mary Sue

    Since last Sunday, the Internet has been abuzz with talk of Game of Thrones' controversial rape scene. We touched on it in our recap and shared with you the responses of the scene's director, co-writer, and one of its actors, plus A Song of Ice and Fire scribe George R.R. Martin. But we hadn't written a post specifically on our personal thoughts on scene, because...well, because we have a lot of them. There's much to unpack about rape culture, storytelling tropes, and the responsibility of fiction. So Jill Pantozzi and Rebecca Pahle, along with Geekosystem's Victoria McNally, sat down to hash it all out. Below you'll find our uncensored discussion on the scene and why, specifically, it made us boil with seething, all-encompassing rage.

  7. The Mary Sue’s Favorite Posts of 2013

    Power Grid

    We've shown you the posts that got you clicking and talking in 2013, but now it's time to get biased. See, all of us here at The Mary Sue love writing for The Mary Sue in general, but there are some posts that we just love more than the others. Maybe something exciting happened. Maybe something disappointing happened and we relished the opportunity to write about it and discuss it with our readers. Maybe someone sent us superhero-themed sex toys. 2013 was a weird year.

  10. The Mary Sue’s 2013 Summer Movie Wrap-Up

    Power Grid

    This summer was a weird one. It felt, in a way, like were were still coming down from the high of The Avengers, the movie that ruled our hearts, minds, and wallets a single summer ago. On hand to catch us as we fell were some good movies, some bad movies, some movies that we weren't angry at, just disappointed, and one shining example of Oh please God, no, why did this movie happen?! We're taking a fond (or, in some cases, not-so-fond) look back at the summer of 2013's giant monsters, giant robots, giant stuffed rabbits, and the giant pile of wrongness that was a whole lot o' whitewashing. Whew. With the summer over, let's get ready for the end-of-year releases. More Hunger Games, Thor, and The Hobbit are right around the corner.
