Gotta Start with my Favorite: Harley Quinn
She was overwhelmingly abused by her significant other. She loved the Joker to the end of the Earth and to the end of Batman if the Joker had his way. Granted: she was OBSESSED! But that is love especially for us women folk. That blew up in her face. Long story short, the Joker dropped her in a vat of bleach and left her. But now she is breaking her back to do all the good she can. All that evil she saw, and though she is her own kind of crazy, sh still does her best to the right thing.
Black Widow: Overly popular now due to the Marvel Cinematic universe taking over the world. She is definitely a super. And more awesome that all her “super” comes from training not supernatural or alien powers. She got where she is by blood, sweat and tears’ in overwhelming amounts. Her soul has been hurt worse that many of us can imagine, but she still gets up and puts the men to shame. All the while looking Amazing!
Cat Woman: I admire her so much simply because she does what she wants. Granted what she wants is vastly illegal but hey we don’t always pick what makes us tick. She hones her stealthy craft and becomes a force in the Batman universe that the Bat himself needs to handle. Despite all of Batman and Bruce’s meddling, she still foes hat she wants, without his blessing.
Emma Frost: Wicked Awesome are the words that come to mind. She is one of the most powerful telepaths in the Marvel Universe. She not only perfected her skills but taught them to others so that her particular brand of magic would never die if she had any thing to do with it. She holds her own in every fight. She doesn’t try to be the phoenix even though we all know she hates that one with a severe vengeance. Which is of course about a bot but she is only a girl. And though hes not my taste Scott is the resident Pretty boy of the X men.
Ivy: Also known as poison Ivy. A woman that can control any man with her variety of magic. She brings a whole city to hers knees. And why does she do this? to show the world that they cannot get away with their evil. Though she never goes about that in a reasonable or even legal manner. She had a point and she was going to say no matter what!
Power Puff Girls: The little tikes of the group. And yes I know they are not technically comic books ladies. but they should be.They were created by a man tinkering around in a lab. But that man loved them like daughters, and return the sentiment to their father. They stick together no matter what. They rid there world of evil. And they do it all with a smile on their faces.
Wonder Woman: The quintessential comic book lady. A woman from a world of women. She left her home. She made a new home. On her own terms. She even fell in love. Though she was drawn to the supers, there was love all the same. And isn’t that what we all want to do for ourselves. Make a place that is all our own, without the shoulds and should nots of our family.
I love them all. They all do what we wish we could. But the secret is that we can be as amazing as they are. We will make a place for ourselves as we find the things and the people that we love.
