After reading the blog guidelines, I thought it would be a good idea to make my first blog about something general. So, I went to youtube and searched "super heroine comics.” I found it very interesting that most of the results that popped up referred to "sexy" or "hot" super heroines, even though I did not search with those words. I watched the video titled "Marvel and DC Comics Superhero Girls by DSNG Artist," and found the images truly offensive and crude (here's the website; proceed with caution!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZBnRaQ1m_E) After this video, I watched a clip about the first team of super heroines: Femforce. It gave a brief description of each member of the team. I found it interesting to see how these characters were described: Ms. Victory is a "tall blonde" who took vitamins which transformed her "into a beautiful juggernaut..a powerful force for freedom," She-Cat is "feisty, spirited [and] sexy," and Nightveil is a "dark, brooding beauty.” All of these bios reinforce our class’s opinion that superheroes/super heroines must have physical beauty. Did anyone else search super heroines on youtube and find something interesting?
