Favorite Female Comic Book Character
Hello all you Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados!
We are back with another poll for this week. Last week saw the fight for Favorite CW Villain you Love to Hate or Hate to Love. Arthur Ketch won in the end, though the Supernatural writers put up a pretty good fight. Thanks again to everyone who participated you all rock and made my week so much fun. You can see the results of last week’s poll posted by me. On each week’s podcast the Malice Corp crew will each choose who they want to put in the ring. Winner from the previous weeks poll gets to pick first in the new weeks poll. This week we are celebrating the release of Wonder Woman. So we are setting up our favorite female comic book characters to duke it out. Any character from comics, or the TV shows/movies those comics spawned could have been picked. And there were some good picks, it was very hard to choose this week. Here are this weeks contestants:
Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, aka Harley Quinn, first appeared in the Batman: The Animated Series episode “Joker’s Favor”, where she served as a humorous female sidekick to the Joker. She was depicted as a character completely devoted to the Joker, totally oblivious to his psychotic nature; this characterization has remained more or less consistent throughout her subsequent appearances. She was vicious in her own right, willingly going along with whatever diabolical scheme her puddin’ cooked up.
So in this case the comics came after the TV Show. But Buffy was an amazing character, and really set the bar heroine wise in the late 90s. She was Fierce, Funny, and always found a way to beat the Bad guys in the end. And she kicked major ass while looking amazing. Whedon really set the standard for how a female BAMF handles her business.
Iris is the daughter of Joe and the late Francine West, the older sister of Wally West, current fiancée of Barry Allen. She was Barry’s best friend growing up after the death of Barry’s mother and Joe fostering him. Charming and beautiful, Iris wants nothing more than to help and care for those around her. She’s highly intuitive and has an innate curiosity. Iris is also a bit of a risk taker and more often doesn’t hesitate to take action when need be. It will be interesting to see how much stubborn determination she has after watching Barry sacrifice himself to the speed force.
Olivia “Liv” Moore is the main protagonist of iZombie. She is a medical resident who was scratched by a zombie on a disastrous boat party and woke up as a zombie. As a result, at least once a month, she must feed on brains to survive. She took a job at the King County Medical Examiner’s Office in order to have access to the brains she needs. This leads to the fact that she can absorb the memories of the deceased, and in turn leads to her aiding in solving crimes.
There is no words to say how much we miss and love Carrie Fisher. She was the original Movie Female BAMF. She was smart, loyal, brave and seriously kicked all the ass and took names. Star Wars and planet Earth will never be the same without presence.
Sue, aka “The Invisible Girl.” Part of the Fantastic 4, she was a serious bad ass on the team. Turning invisible was just one of her tricks. She also can make defensive force fields that protect the other members. And also throw psychic waves to knock down enemies. The once-passive Sue Richards has matured into a formidable and commanding heroine over the years-but it is still her warmly maternal presence that binds the team together.
Diana is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, and an Amazonian Princess. In the comics she was a demi-god, but given many blessing by the Gods of Olympus. Wonder Woman became a popular female hero figure around the time of the Teen Titan’s creation. Around this time, Wonder Woman had become part of the Justice League of America. She is one of the most powerful beings in creation, and is just so much fun to watch.
Raised in captivity, X-23 was trained to be a weapon. Her Creator did her best to ensure the child retained some semblance of humanity, but her efforts appeared to be in vain. After seven years, Rice had X-23 subjected to radiation poisoning in order to accelerate the activation of her mutant gene, then forcibly extracted her claws and coated them with Adamantium. X-23’s services were sold to the highest bidder, and she was left emotionally stunted as a result. Rice, in an attempt to avenge his father’s murder, abandoned X-23 on a particularly dangerous mission, but she survived against overwhelming odds and managed to return to the facility.
