  4. Superhero Movie Rumor Round-up: Lex Luthor and The Avengers are Getting “New Looks”

    Not in the same film, though. That's be weird.

    Whether you're gathering a highly trained team of superheroes or stealing as many as 40 cakes (and that's terrible), choosing the right look for yourself is an important part of the process.

  5. Sympathetic Characters: Gender Bias, Villains, & Orphan Black

    Essay

    [Editor's Note: There are no spoilers for BBC America's Orphan Black in this post, some adult language, and lots of good points.] Recently, my husband and I burned through S1 of Orphan Black, which, as promised by virtually the entire internet, was awesome. But in all the praise I’d seen for it, a line from one review in particular stuck in my mind. The reviewer noted that, although the protagonist, Sarah, is an unlikeable character, her grifter skills make her perfectly suited to unravelling the mystery in which she finds herself. And as this was a positive review, I kept that quote in mind when we started watching, sort of by way of prewarning myself: you maybe won’t like Sarah, but that’s OK. But here’s the thing: I fucking loved Sarah. I mean, I get what the reviewer was trying to say, in that she’s not always a sympathetic character, but that’s not the same as her actually being unlikeable. And the more I watched, the more I found myself thinking: why is this quality, the idea of likeability, considered so important for women, but so optional for men – not just in real life, but in narrative?

  7. Oh Nothing, Just Scarlett Johansson Being A Super-Human Badass In The International Lucy Trailer

    We Can Cause More Damage That Way

    Yes, none of us really appreciate the "10% of your brain" thing, or the possible racial issues which may come into play in Luc Besson's Lucy, but I'm pretty sure the only thing that will be running through my mind when seeing this film will be, "Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow." Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  10. Greg Rucka Has Something Important To Say About Your Gatekeeping Of Women In Geek Culture

    Essay

    [Editor's Note: With creator Greg Rucka's permission, we're republishing a piece he wrote on his personal blog in its entirety. Some strong language to follow from a husband and father who's fed up. The topic of conversation? The above t-shirt design spotted at WonderCon this past weekend.] I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking. Warning. Contents under pressure.
