We often joke about how much we'd like to watch the many, many movies we've seen imagined by fan trailers, but this is one that we're truly disappointed isn't a real thing. It's not that we'd like the entire Batman movie franchise to be overtaken by an "it's all in his head" premise, but just one, outside of any other movie canon, would make for a nice alternate universe "what if?" departure from the straightforward takes we usually get.Read More
Mark Millar's 2003 limited series Superman: Red Son may find new life at Warner Bros, and news of these discussions is certainly popping up in interesting political times.Read More
No one wants this.
Oh, good. Because the audiences so enamored by Wonder Woman–the ones talking and tweeting about the character nonstop, buying up merch, and seeing the new movie in record-breaking numbers–they've all been saying the same thing, right? We can all agree on the one thing missing from her story: a central male superhero figure. Isn't that what we've been asking for? (Spoiler: It's not.)Read More

"You seriously can't tell the difference between a bird and a plane?"
OK, so I was a little bit skeptical when talking about the first promo for NBC's upcoming DC show, Powerless. However, after seeing the most recent one, which shows just how connected this new comedy will be to the DC characters we know and love, I'm starting to get really jazzed!Read More
Interview: Mariko Tamaki and Joëlle Jones Focus More On the “Girl” and Less On the “Super” In Supergirl: Being Super
I've become obsessed with all things Supergirl. However, as much as I love Kara, I've often felt that, because of the circumstances of her backstory she, unlike her cousin Clark, has often felt even less human, as lots of attention has been paid to the fact that the character left Krypton as a teenager, and so feels the separation from her homeworld more. Supergirl: Being Super gives us a different Kara Danvers entirely.Read More
With the focus on truth, ethics, and accountability more important than ever given our current political climate, it’s important that we understand the not-so-secret origins of investigative journalism and the woman who paved the way for the lauded efforts of today’s most trusted reporters, both real and fictional.Read More
Wonder Woman’s Amazons Finally Getting An Origin of Their Own — How Much Does Who Creates It Matter?
DC recently announced a Wonder Woman prequel series that will explore the history of the Amazons, which sounds pretty sweet. Less sweet is the fact that a female comics creator pitched a Wonder Woman prequel series a while back, never heard a response about it, only to hear the news that one was not only happening, but that it was happening based on a pitch from a male writer.Read More
Comics have a long history full of character choices that may have seemed perfectly harmless at the moment of their inception, but reveal themselves over time to be the product of unexamined discrimination. One such character is Cindy Reynolds, A.K.A. Gypsy.Read More
One of the tragic events that made 2016 a crap sandwich of a year was the shooting at Pulse Nightclub, an LGBTQIA club in Orlando, FL. IDW and DC Comics joined forces to create a comics anthology called Love Is Love, which contains work from a bunch of our favorite comics creators, and the proceeds of which will benefit the survivors of the Pulse shooting and victims' families. Now, Archie Comics is the latest comics publisher to join the effort with a heartbreaking Kevin Keller story.Read More

The Art of DC Comics Bombshells Proves That “Sexy” and “Powerful” Aren’t Mutually Exclusive, and Neither Need Be “Exploitative”
Bombshells get it right where others get it wrong.
A month later than we expected, but well worth the wait, The Art of DC Comics Bombshells is finally hitting stores at the end of this month! Flipping through it, I was struck by the notion that through this line of statuettes, artwork, and comics, we have an entire collection of scantily-clad, pin-up heroines...that don't bother me. That I actually find empowering. So, what's the difference between these heroines and Spider-Woman as depicted by, oh I don't know, Milo Manara?Read More
Earlier today, in a ceremony at the United Nations, Wonder Woman was named an Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls, in conjunction with the UN's Sustainable Development Goal #5 which, according to a press release, "focuses on gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls as a critical component of a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world." However, there are those at the UN who were not thrilled with this particular choice of ambassador.Read More
