I feel this script could be improved a bit if Tigra was shown up as the comedically ignorant character and Valkyrie was shown to have a point. When women in the Middle East are getting their noses cut off and their clitoris' mutilated, when women in so many areas of the West are the unspoken victims of domestic abuse, when the male-run churches think they can dictate every right a woman has to her body and her independence, when the sexist prejudice if many employers drives women out of work, when prostitution and exploitative porn still run unchecked...it's kind of cretinous for a comic aimed at a young teen audience to be written like this.

I mean, come on - Tigra emphasises 'feminist' as if it's adirty word that she knows less about than Sarah Palin? Tigra, whose most recent forays back into the limelight were 'Got phusically abused by a man in a magic cape' and 'Unknowingly seduced an alien terrorist'? And Valkyrie - a strong-willed female character who actually wears functional armour - is re-branded as the comedy man-hating feminist who 'gotta be a dyke cuz they hate men, AMIRITE FELLAS'. Why didn't they just give her a buzz-cut and have her burn a phallus in effigy, if they wanted to be wilfully ignorant?
