Women’s take on the DC Universe

Not my normal subject for discussion, but I ended up really enjoying Women Writing on Comics‘ breakdown of the “New 52” DC comics universe.  Especially their discussion of Wonder Woman: several of the commentators pointed to some issues that I hadn’t thought about, like her lack of agency on the whole WW/Superman thing that fans always seem to be banging on about, or the fact that it would make her a “supporting cast member” for ol’ Kal-El instead of a character in her own right.

(Tell you what, though; it’s REALLY making me miss DCUO. I have to get a better computer sometime soon.)

Anyway, check it out.
