So When Are We Gonna Stop Letting Joss Whedon Coast on 20-Year-Old White Feminism?

Hers Is The Fury: An Ode To Hawkgirl and Other “Punchy” Heroines

As most of y’all know, I am a huge Justice League fan (circa 2000; the animated series of course). Because of this, everyone who was a part of the main squad had my respect for one reason or another. Batman. Wonder Woman. Martian Manhunter. Green Lantern (John Stewart). The Flash (Wally West). Hawkgirl (Shayera Hol). … Continue reading
