  4. Visual Representation: Trans Characters In Comics

    When there was a changing of the creative team in Batgirl earlier this year, many readers asked, “What will happen to Alysia?” Batgirl's roommate, created by Gail Simone, made headlines across the internet when she confided to her Bat-roomie that she was trans.

  6. The New Creative Team On New 52 Wonder Woman Turns The Comic Into An Utter (Sexist) Disappointment

    She carries around a teddy bear for comfort. So.

    And Ryan Choi, and Wally West, and Lois and Clark are married, and...

    I'm as cynical as any long-time comics fan can be, DC Comics. So when you announce the return of one of my favorite comics writers, to one of my very favorite comics characters, I have only two things to say to you.

  10. Dawn of Justice Producer Confirms Wonder Woman Will Have New 52 Origin Story

    She laughs so she does not cry.

    Gah, Hera: maybe it was self-evident that Zack Snyder wouldn't be able to handle Wonder Woman's Zeus-less origin story, but, fool that I am, this still stings.
