Recently the brilliant and ever interesting DCWomenKickingAss started a rather epic project, trying to identify what readers considered as the most memorable moments from DC Women. She started by asking for suggestions on twitter and tumblr, and from the 135 suggested ran polls to narrow it down to 30. Those 30 each got their own post, often written up my some amazing guest bloggers. The posts were interesting and enlightening, and introduced me and many others to many characters I’d had little exposure to. She’s about to start the voting on THE most memorable moment, and if you have a chance, check out the top 30 articles, all linked here.
What she did got us gals to thinking. What about Marvel? Angel and Chantaal are big time Marvel girls, I grew up reading mostly Marvel though I tend toward DC and indies now, and Emma reads both labels. That aside, there are a lot of amazing female characters in the Marvel Universe. They’ve had some awful moments, but they’ve had some brilliant ones too. So, with DCWomen’s blessing, we’re taking a page from her book.
For the next two days we’ll ask you to nominate your favourite moments for your favourite Marvel women. The ONLY rule is that the woman must have had agency in this moment. It must be something that she did, not something was done to her.
From there, we’ll list them all and split them into groups. We’ll run polls and pick the top 20 or 30 moments, based on the number of nominees in the first round. We’ll do the same as DCWomen and try and cajole a few guest bloggers from our many friends out there in the geek and comic world. And then we’ll have a final poll, which will rank the top few moments.
So, this is your chance. What moment defines your favourite female character? When does she shine? What makes her great? Comment here or respond to our twitter and tell us what your favourite Marvel female moment is!!
