Oh yes it's ladies night and the feeling's right
Oh yes it's ladies night, oh what a night, oh what a night!

Girls, y'all got one
A night that's special everywhere
From New York to Hollywood
It's ladies night and girl the feeling's good

Ahem, sorry, flashbacks to the music of my youth...

Rhiannon Owens (Click to go to her DeviantArt account) is an artist whose work I've enjoyed looking at in the past, and she has been doing some amazing work on sketchcards for Marvel. The following examples I found by casually browsing through e-bay...

Dangerous Beauty )

And also, an artist whose work is new to me, a watercolour artist who has a rather sophisticated fashion sense to boot is Kevin Wada

I'm perhaps a little surprised that this title hasn't had more coverage here, I'm not saying a female team should HAVE to be featured but I thought it might have been, especially as it's quite enjoyable (Well, IMHO)


A new balance is achieved )

You know how much I love Misty Knight, right? Well a lot.

But that's not what I want to talk about in this first issue of Fearless Defenders.

Yes, the "Distinguished Competition" clearly fumbled the ball and Marvel is picking it up and going for it.

The universe abhors a vacuum, and this one left a big one.

Newsarama has the interview as Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning talk Villains for Hire.

If Heroes for Hire is Marvel's answer to Birds of Prey, it's important to note that it's only an answer to certain very specific parts of BoP, when Oracle or somebody stepping in for Oracle was acting as a power broker. When I think BoP, I honestly think of it more as a romantic comedy between Canary and Oracle, and I doubt I'm alone on that. Heroes for Hire is definitely a spin on Oracle herself, but not necessarily on BoP.

I made sure to point this out when the preview pages went up, but "Disco Highway" may be the single most ridiculous and therefore best story in the entire anthology.

Dazzler has hired Misty Knight and Colleen Wing as security for her world tour. Wackiness has ensued.

This entire thing is a neverending font of icon/avatar pictures.

So Shang Chi's dad is in the process of being brought back from the dead by the Black Dragon Society, but they need his son's blood. Two of the Society's agents, a Life Model Decoy of Nick Fury granted full memories and independence by the Zodiac Key named Max Fury and one John Steele, kidnap Agent 13, Sharon Carter, for leverage.

John Steele reminded me of an old supervillain I haven't seen in a long time, and I found confirmation in an off-hand reference to Steele's backstory. Steele was captured by Germans in WWI and studied by the man who created the Supersoldier serum, AND the father of the man who created the process that empowered Luke Cage.

4 pages from Secret Avengers 9 and 7 pages from the 22 page story from Power Man and Iron Fist 83 to show you this other guy. Bonus cameos of Misty Knight and Colleen Wing, as well as two of Luke's old girlfriends.

I thought this would be fun post to do and another opportunity for everyone to participate.

So last week my best friend and I were at a local comic book store and I spotted Adam Hughes's poster The Real Power Of The DC Universe:

This has always been one of my pieces because it showcases and celebrates arguably the most dominant female characters (and some of the most dominant characters period), and not to mention some of my all-time favorite characters in comics. What I always find interesting about that picture is that some of the characters showcased, I wouldn't have initially thought of as a major player in the DC Universe but when I pondered further, I realized that an argument could be made on the impact they've made on comics and even comic-related media (movies, cartoons, etc.).

This of course got me thinking about Marvel. If I had to choose 11 heroines, anti-heroines who have made the biggest splash and are the premiere power of the 616, who would they be?
