Harley is a gift from God.

This is why Harley is like my all time favorite!

Why did they leave out the best part of this scene?;

The character development of Harley is probably one of the better things DC has done with their characters.

YOWZERS. their clothes are silly but this is a real conversation between two women, more than most superhero movies ever give us.

Two thumbs up.

I’m the strongest there is.

This is fantastic. Anyone know where this is from? Reblogging, as usual, managed to strip away any credit attributions.

Googling suggests this is Hulk: Season One by Fred Van Lente and Tom Fowler.

DAMMIT this is hard.

If a real person is saying this, they are absolutely right. BUT men who draw super-sexy ladies in comic books will also say this to “explain” the fashion “choices” of a fictional woman. Wonder Woman cannot make choices. She only does what the writer of the story decides.

So while it is not unreasonable to say a character “wears what she wants” and attribute it to her personality, the fact is a lot of female superheroes wear revealing clothes for one reason only: to appeal to male readers.

(either way it is gross to call a woman slut because of what she’s wearing)

All true, but in this case the artist is a woman, and Wonder Woman has been reconsidered specifically as part of DC’s initiative to bring in a new audience of teenage girls. Context is everything. If this dialogue were, say, Frank Cho justifying why he draws Power Girl’s boob window so large she should be flashing areola whenever she moves, sure, that would be comics being gross as usual. But here? This strikes me as a good message, not sleazy justification.

Comics Alliance has done some really great pieces on DC’s new girls-focused projects (Wonder Woman and Batgirl). And those articles are also written by female critics, so it’s not just mansplaining like I’m doing here. I, for one, welcome our new diverse overlords. God knows we straight white dudes have made a hash of it.

thanks for adding context, I didn’t know the full story behind this particular piece.

skemono submitted to medievalpoc:

Thought I’d submit some mainstream cape & cowl comics. Let’s start off with Ms. Marvel from Marvel Comics. The writer is G. Willow Wilson, and the artists Adrian Alphona & Jake Wyatt.

Ms. Marvel follows Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American Muslim girl in New Jersey, who gains superpowers. Much of the supporting cast are also Muslims, all of whom are depicted respectfully, and have a diverse range of personalities, attitudes, and approaches to their religion.

But it’s also just one of the most fun comics on the stands now. Kamala is a happy, geeky fangirl, and it is a blast to follow her adventures.

Also she headbutts a robot.

It’s only eight issues in so far, so it’s pretty easy to catch up. Also it’s been pretty isolated from the rest of the Marvel universe thus far, so you don’t need to know anything going in.

Not sure I’m into that weird big hand in the top pic, but everything else here is very exciting.
