Wonder Woman is Tricky?

Earlier this week I was reading an interesting post by Gail Simone, my favorite comic book writer, on her tumblr talking about how Wonder Woman might not be as tricky as those with power keep saying she is, but it is more a matter of perspective.  For my generation we think of the DC animated Universe first.  All the time.  Every time.

But why does it have to be a Wonder Woman movie that we all keep talking about when they talk about a super hero movie with a female lead.  Wonder Woman isn’t my favorite, but she is the first female superhero to come to mind that is not defined by a man in some way, Supergirl is Superman’s cousin, Batgirl is Batman’s protégée, Black Canary is Green Arrow’s girlfriend/wife, Batwoman is weirdly connected yet not connected, Wasp is married to Antman, Star Sapphire(Carol Farris) is married to Green Lantern(Hal Jordan), Kitty Pryde, Jean Grey, Rouge, and so many more, are students of Prof. X’s.  The list goes on and on like this.  I have so many mixed feeling on that part of the issue.  Most of my favorite superheroes are on this list.  For how oversaturated the market is with superheroes, we may have 5 prime time network shows featuring the superhero universe on television as soon as the spring, there isn’t a single one of them with a woman as the main character.  I can only think of one genera show on TV right now that is lead by a female lead on network prime time right now and that’s Emma Swan on Once Upon a Time.

So my point is I want a female superhero TV show or Movie, and sooner rather than later.  However selfishly I want all of the movies to be directed by men so I can be the first woman to direct a superhero movie for a large studio.

 

 

Geek Chic Rings

I have to say rings are pretty much my favorite piece of  Jewelry.  I like how small and understated they can be, and how gaudy and over the top they can be.  I like the idea of nerdy engagement rings and ones that show your nerd pride in a way that can’t really be seen unless you know what you’re looking for.
