It seems you’re forgetting the times Wonder Woman has taken down Superman and Batman.


Or the time the entire League was being handily defeated by an Amazo - and then Vixen beat it with one hit.

Or the time Black Canary lead the entire Justice League.

Or the time Power Girl lead the entire Justice Society.

Or all the times young women have decided to become heroes - despite being told not to.






But that’s just me.



Let’s not forget the woman who was the top of her class at West Point, and refused to compromise her honesty and integrity, leading to her being booted with a dishonorable discharge.
Then on the street, she beat her attacker down before Batman could “rescue” her.


Basically
Anyone who thinks that female heroes are ‘weaker’ or ‘less inspiring’ than male heroes is wrong
They are the king of wrong town
Located near ‘Don’t-know-what-they’re-talking-about City’

This anon obviously has been reading the wrong comics. Every comic I read—EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM—features powerful, capable, strong women.  They’re also INCREDIBLY inspiring; I’ve been inspired by this woman here

since I was a teenager. 

I am SO glad that Jean Grey has been such an important and inspiring hero for you over the years hon! <3
And yeah, I don’t know how ANYONE can think that female heroes aren’t inspirational…

*RANT ENSUES*
I grew up on Peter David’s Supergirl series & you know what? It was, & STILL IS, one of the best reads that had one of the most diverse ensemble casts that I’ve seen in a comic book series I have read since then, & NOW.
This series opened my eyes to the world around me & to say that any female superhero is “weaker” & “less inspiring than their male counterparts” just has to look at this scene:


Supergirl #42, page 13. 
Written by Peter David. Art by Leonard Kirk.

Linda, & the characters in this series are my heroes, dammit.
Each character, in this series, from Mattie Harcourt, to Andy Jones/Andy Martinez/Zed One/Comet, to Fred & Sylvia Danvers, to Richard Malverne, to Cutter Sharpe, to Wally The God Boy, even the minor & cameo characters that show up, in this series, are flawed, but, they are all fleshed out, in a way that we know them & their personalities,.
You know why? It’s because, these characters feel relatable & believable, to someone/the fan reading the damned comic.
Andy, one of the first trans superheroes I remember, in recent years, by the way, was based off of a very dear friend to the writer, whom identified as a lesbian, herself, & he, personally, asked her, if he could put her in the series.
This REAL PERSON, & her origin story, the one where the character gets the living shit beaten out of her, by her father, just by being who she identified as, was Andy’s, personal, origin.
Read Supergirl #26 & Supergirl #39, if you want to read the origin, in more depth.
Mattie Harcourt, an African-American doctor, in this series.
Cutter Sharpe- who (think the male version of Lois Lane, but, living in a suburban setting) identified as Jewish, &, briefly, married both Andy & Mattie:


Supergirl #26
Written by Peter David.
Art by Leonard Kirk.

 
Linda, herself, became a hero, throughout this series, in her own right, WITHOUT SUPERMAN (Whom, I might add, appeared very sparsely, in this entire series.)
So, in the end, DON’T YOU DARE TELL SOMEONE THAT A FEMALE-IDENTIFYING SUPERHERO IS “WEAKER” OR “LESS INSPIRING”.
THESE HEROES ARE OUR HEROES, WHETHER THEY ARE FICTIONAL OR NOT.
For someone, anyone, really, to tell another fan that female-identifying superheroes are “always weaker” & “less inspiring” to someone who has, personally, looked up to these heroes, as a child, used these characters as an “escape”, if you will, of their life, at home, & has seen a part of themselves in these characters…
NEWSFLASH: YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DEFINE A HERO, NOR DO YOU GET TO DEFINE WHO A HERO IS, TO SOMEONE ELSE.

Sorry:

ealperin:    wide-worlds-joy:    is this one of the Amalgam stories?  Supergirl and Phoenix?    Nope. This is an actual arc from Peter Davids Supergirl series, back in the early to mid 90s. The splash, here, comes from issue #17. The purple guy with the fin on his head, in the lower left side of this photo is called L-Ron, whos in Desperos body, at this time, due to some body switching mishap gone wrong. His arc ends in issue #18. ;)
