Why I have opened the window!

Amerykah has turned a corner and we should all turn with it. I have thoughts ideas and suggestions but I also have patience and desire for us to be whole and one. I have been speaking a lot lately of the human condition and the generations of Black Americans. i will entertain any and all conversation as long as we can be respectful and grown up. Let the healing begin......

DC comics give 2009 to the Women

Anyone who has read comics on the Semi-regular basis over the last few years has come to recognize that the big two, Marvel and DC, are addressing the severe lack of diversity that the silver age clearly lacked.

The two most recent changes over at DC are the introduction of Super Woman and the Graduation of Bat Woman to her own book.

Batwoman was reintroduced almost two years ago during the “Infinite Crisis” company wide storyline. She made some appearances after a huge hype machine but never really found a home. Well with the current Batman RIP storyline Batman has disappeared from Gotham and is supposedly dead. So Kath Kane, wealth socialite by day and high heeled crime buster by night, will be starring in Detective comics for at least 12 issues.

Over in Superman the earth just fought of an invasion of Kryptonians (don’t ask) and all these super survivors have taken up residence on a planet in opposite orbit of Earth on the dark side of the moon (I told you don’t ask). One of the Kryptonians has decided t that is to turn traitor against her people and work with the governments of Earth to develop plans to fight off a Kryptonian invasion (I keep saying don’t ask!!). We know it’s not Super girl but that is pretty much all we know about her at this point.

Regardless of how I feel about the storylines it is good to see actually “Women” being thrown into the spotlight and not just “girls”.

Wonder Woman will still be Wonder Woman!!!

These comic heroins - are they on steroids?
It looks like video games have influenced their desire to beef up.
(But of all the women in these books, Grendal was my comic book girl)
