AMAZON ART #20

I had heard that in recent years DC had been building Aquaman's sidekick Mera as a power in her own right. Still--




The idea that she could send Superman flying with one blow is a little nuts.

Nice punch, though.

Since I devoted some space to Lois Lane on ARCHETYPAL ARCHIVE this week, I might as well toss out some of Lois' more memorable martial moments.

A quick shot of one of the more balls-to-the-walls moments in Yukito Kishiro's BATTLE ANGEL ALITA, forever rumored to be in "development hell."

I don't know that I ever would have devoted a post just to BULLETGIRL, as she was the somewhat mediocre sidekick to BULLETMAN, who was no great shakes either, albeit more popular than a lot of Golden Age heroes.

Like most sidekicks, Bulletgirl got clobbered a lot, but she does have some decent scenes slugging it out with villains.






And here she is teamed with Mary Marvel in a 1970s story by Don Newton.

This 2004 Joe Jusko cover is a little more "posed" than I usually like them. However, in contrast to a lot of "hot babe comics" from around this time, this one is high on the fem-violence, as Vampirella meets Witchblade for the first time and they both go to Hell and kick ass.

Best part is when they rag on each other's outfits, with Witchblade comparing Vampi's getup to "butt floss," while Vampi shoots back that WB looks like she's dressed for the "half-time show."

Here's a particularly fine Alan Davis cover of Black Canary stomping a passel of thugs, from ACTION COMICS #624.

AMAZON ART #14



Hilariously daffy "paranoia" cover, which looks like a "battle of the sexes" conflict. Unfortunately, the girls aren't the real heroines-- and to add insult to injury, they're not even real girls!
