LEGO SuperFriends Project Takes Girly Minifigs And Makes Them Into Heroes

Everything is awesome!

The LEGO Friends line of products got a lot of flak from feminist critics when it was first introduced, mostly because it took what was envisioned as a completely gender-neutral toy and turned it into a very tradition-conforming example of femininity. The pastel-hued sets are inspired by shopping malls and Disney princesses; the minifigs have bright eyes and slender waists. And there's so much pink! You know what the LEGO Friends could use? Some superheroes.

Wondy the Riveter, and The Rest of DC Comics’ Gorgeous Bombshell Variant Covers

Great Hera!

DC Comics has released all of its variant covers for June, on the theme of nineteen-fifties style bombshell posters featuring its major female characters, from Arisia to Zatanna and Mera and Lois Lane in between. The drawings and designs are lovely, and some are even already being pushed to posters, prints, and statues. Still, I agree with DCWKA when I say: why couldn't we get some dude bombshells?

And That's Terrible

Editor’s Note: as 2013 drew to a close, we asked contributing writer Amanda LaPergola to sum the year’s geekiest highlights in an entertaining and timely fashion.  We emphasized the timely part for her benefit.  That was almost two months ago.  It is now nearly the end of January, and Amanda still won’t answer any of our texts. However, this morning a mysterious package arrived at Mary Sue headquarters.  Its contents included what appeared to be a note from Amanda’s mom (“Dear Miss Sue: Please excuse my daughter’s tardiness.  She has recently begun The Master Cleanse, and every time she goes near paper, she tries to eat it.”) and the following pages…
