Willie Murphy is 77 Years Old and She Can Deadlift Twice Her Own Weight


If you’re looking for a reason to get to the gym in this busy, cold, food-filled time of the year, look no further than Willie Murphy, the World National Powerlifting Federation’s 2014 Lifter of the Year. Now queue up “Eye of the Tiger” and hope that you’re half as badass as one of Ms. Murphy’s little fingers when you’re that age.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
