I've mentioned this series in posts in the past, but it still seems relevant to the group, and to those looking for some actual female focussed superhero items for younger family members, or even for yourselves (I'm in no position to judge another person's toy collection heaven knows). The dolls and action figures have now been shown in packaging.

Well, I have a some nieces and a goddaughter or two who might enjoy these )

Once upon a time, there was Batman: The Animated Series. And it was good.

Then someone decided to shake up the status quo, slap more action-ready redesigns on everybody, replace half the writing staff, and tie it all to the Superman cartoon airing at the time. And the results were decidedly horrible mixed.

Somewhere closer to the positive end of that scale, we have 1996's Batgirl Adventures #1, sort of a pseudo-sequel to 1995's Batman Adventures Holiday Special as well as another prototype of TNBA's Girls' Night Out. Once again, there's not much plot other than "the ladies of Gotham kick lots of ass, add one cup of humor and stir", but it's a formula that's made Paul Dini plenty popular, and I'd be lying if I said I weren't fond if it.

(Doesn't hurt that the yellow-and-black look is one of my favorite BG costumes of all time, either.)



The other (other) World's Finest, behind the cut! )

Oh, there was a girl from Gotham...

That walked the hero's road,

For the sake of her old father...

It's to her I sing this ode.

With ra-zor sharp intellect...

She struck down every foe.

Joy and inspiration,

It's these to her we owe...

Gray and blue...

Gray and blue...

The girl from Gotham wore the gray and blue...



So of course, this comic is best known for introducing a sociopathic criminal. C'est la vie. )

By the way, I'll be going through a lot of Babsgirl stuff this week, so if there's anything you want me to keep my grubby little hands off of, speak up now. Thank you.

Harley Quinn is easily one of the most popular of the Batman Rogues, and in part that's due to her rounded characterisation, humour and tragic backstory... but there's one kind of questionable part that creators over the years have had a bit of difficulty ironing out.

Namely: How she got her degree.

Trigger warnings for implict slut shaming and victim blaming )

Up Next: Big Barda and Superman in THAT crossover...
