Today's post is inspired by something I read over at the Mommyish blog. I don't always agree with everything over there, but I do enjoy reading it. Today they posted about comic book heroes. Specifically a new comic that shows a bunch of characters on the cover of a comic. All the male characters look like super heroes. The one lady, Wonder Woman, well, she looks like what my mom used to call "a street walker".
Here is the article:
I found the pictures and article very interesting. It made me think about my childhood super hero, She-Ra, The Princess of Power. So I googled some old images of her and I was proud to see that she doesn't look like a stripper or street walker. In fact, she looks pretty kick ass if you ask me. :)
Check her out:
I'm not sure what we are supposed to see with Wonder Woman. Is this a comic book for adults or children? Any of my readers know? Check it out:
"Bleeding Cool" did to the guys...hehehe:
I think my daughter will have a heavy influence of She-Ra in her life. Lucky for me, um, I mean HER, they have updated the line, look how awesome She-Ra looks NOW:
I have already obtained this action figure. Did you know that when I was a child I wanted to grow up to be She-Ra? And why not? She was pretty, kind, smart, and strong. She was a good friend and fought for justice for those that were treated badly. She was forgiving and wanted to find the good in everyone. She conquered evil, rescued the oppressed and again, I just want to mention, she could heal and speak with animals. She was the COOLEST. I think I still want to be She-Ra when I grow up.
Check out some more pictures of She-Ra and all her awesome friends, these ladies are strong and feminine without have to resort to looking like a....uh, "street walker".
I am a really big fan of this picture:
And at least they also put He-Man in a skimpy outfit:
