Another Jeff

While the goal may be admirable, the line about being the "first true female superhero since Wonder Woman" is a bit off-putting, since it appears to acknowledge that there have been other female superheroes created but to assert that they're not "true" women.


I'm put off by the fact that, once again, using a comic to present a hero frames it in the fecking superhero mode. I understand needing iconic, but there are many roads to that, and a superhero is but one. You wouldn't know it, though. It's the Stan Lee effect: no matter WHAT you give the man to work with, his idea is always the same, SUPAH HEERO!

And it looks annoyingly dated, as if the team that put it together hasn't seen a comic since the early 70's.


I must appreciate the effort and specially admire the idea which is chosen to help others and to spread the awareness it is may be a most effective way to convey your ideas to general public and change their thoughts
