It is far easier for the female paradigm to subvert, give the princess a laser cannon, and have her kick some ass than it is for the male paradigm to adapt into the female one.
He and I are basically the same person, except he has a glorious penis and I have glorious breasts.

The Battletoads' main nemesis, the Dark Queen, commands a massive army of rodents and wishes to dominate the universe. Usually serving as final boss in the games, the Dark Queen is basically a sexy Shredder
, right down to her between-level taunts.
was a totally badass, growly antisocial guy who smoked and drank and who was so tough nobody better mess with him, and Marvel thought, 'Hell, we can pander to young boys way
harder than that!'
refers to Poison Ivy as a 'beautiful, sexy' version of the Unabomber. Never really thought of it that way, to be honest. Never gotten that drunk or stoned.
I cannot produce any feelings about this cast or the news of a Ghostbusters
reboot until I know two things:
1. Does Sigourney Weaver
reprise her role as Dana/Zuul in it? If the answer is no, fuck this shit.
2. If Sigourney Weaver is in it, which one of those four ladies is she going to try to scissor with?

Has a Cast"
She’s basically a female version of the Human Torch
(except that her powers require her to be naked all the time, because of course they do
), and I don’t recall reading any comics where Johnny Storm has to seduce Dr. Doom
before he starts flaming on.
Just so we're clear, Spider-Woman
has had her own show and She-Hulk
hasn't. She-Hulk, who's really awesome and a lawyer and likes to break the fourth wall and hangs out with Howard the Duck
and all, no cartoon...This ABC Saturday morning toon from 1979 had Jessica Drew working as an editor at Justice Magazine
, which was never featured in the comics, so that's kinda stupid...Like the completely not-lame Spider-Man
character (who was apparently contractually obligated to appear in two episodes of this nonsense), Spider-Woman possesses a spider sense that alerts her to danger. But in this cartoon, danger usually took the form of ghostly Vikings or UFOs, which would be cool if they were being fought by a character folks actually give a shit about. Now, She-Hulk taking on ghost Vikings aboard a UFO? That's entertainment.
T'Pol is a female Vulcan who is the ship's second in command and Science Officer, ie Spock with a sex change...She's not as famous for wearing her form fitting uniform
as she is for taking off
her form fitting uniform.
Yes, SHODAN is a female, villain version of Max Headroom
. And that is hilarious.
You think Peter O'Toole
and Faye Dunaway are all excited that they're gonna be in a Superman
movie, you know? And then they find out they're in Supergirl.
