For the past three years, the fantastic site DC Women Kicking Ass has run a tournament to name the most kick ass DC woman of the year. This year, the final four are Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Black Canary (Dinah Lance), Stephanie Brown, and Wonder Woman. Yesterday and today, each woman’s case has been made in a guest post, and I got to make the case for Wonder Woman:
My argument boiled down to the fact that Wonder Woman has been kicking ass the longest, and in so many ways over the decades while overcoming so many obstacles, that she is the DEFINITIVE kick ass DC woman. The post takes a look at how Wonder Woman was awesome by decade, starting in the 1940s and running to today. Plus it’s got lots of fun pictures!! So go give it a read, and vote for Wonder Woman in the semi-finals and, hopefully, in the finals too!!
I’ve got a feeling that it might be Stephanie Brown’s year as a sort of protest vote, since Stephanie Brown outrage remains strong. I love Steph too, but Wonder Woman is far and away the most kick ass DC woman and has already lost the tournament twice to former Batgirls!! Let’s right that wrong this year. Look for the final voting rounds to begin in the coming days at DC Women Kicking Ass.
