Loving comics doesn't mean ignoring their problems

This is a space for nerds and feminists who are tired of sexism in comic books and the community surrounding them and the mansplaining that accompanies it. Recently, I've expanded to talking about other aspects of Nerd Culture like Video Games. Share your stories, experiences.
Before you ask: Yes I am MORE than aware that there are companies other than the Big 2.

Prayer circle that Hope Van Dyne will either become Red Queen or Wasp in the Ant-Man movie and not just be some side character love interest for Paul Rudd

Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail. Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes. Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.

Wow.
I hadn’t really considered this. Interesting point!

So on SDCC Women of Marvel there are Katie Cook, writer and artist, Erica Shultz and Marguerite Bennet, writers and Joanna Estep, an artist. And Marvel announces new solo book about one of their superheroines - Spider-Woman.

They do not give the book to either of these women. They don’t give it to Kelly Sue Deconnick, who put Captainn Marvel on the spotlight and wanted to write Spider-Woman. No, they give it to two dudes, out of which one has been called by fans  on being both misgonistic and racist in his writing and other traces from porn.

This is the worst! I have been wanting a Spider-Woman solo but OHMYGOD NOT WITH THESE TWO

Done and done.

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.

strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?
