The Roundup: Women Take the Week

The Roundup: Women Take the Week

By Tim Beedle Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Step aside, guys. In the world of DC Comics, this week belongs to the ladies.

Yes, the heroes and villains featured in most of this Wednesday’s DC Comics – The New 52 releases are strong, powerful, funny and intelligent… and just happen to be female. Kate Kane confronts Nocturna in Batwoman. Pandora and Agent Kincaid team up in a battle of immortals in Trinity of Sin: Pandora (with an assist from… Well, that would spoil the fun, but it’s another VERY prominent female character). Batgirl takes the Batman Eternal spotlight as she squares off against the South American assassin known as Scorpiana. Supergirl shows off her might (and rage) against a threat from the past. Lois Lane continues to dig deep in The New 52: Futures End. And Harley Quinn reunites with her best bud Ivy to find out who’d be crazy enough to put a bounty on her head.

Of course, we absolutely cannot forget WONDER WOMAN #32, particularly after the chilling, tragic events of the past two issues. Gods are proving to be very much mortal as the First Born continues to carve his bloody path through all of Olympus. Diana continues to rally the Amazons, but will there be anyone left alive by the time they mount an attack? Of course, if you’re looking for fist-to-giant-fist action, you’ll find it here as well, as this sweet cover by Cliff Chiang promises.
