More Kate Kane Appreciation.
So much love for this woman
Kate Kane is not only my favourite comics hero, she’s my personal hero as well…I just worship her and reading about her helps give me the strength to be who I am and live the life I want <3
She’s just an inspiration to me…this brave, fierce, smart, WONDERFUL lesbian woman right here…and having a hero like her to read about makes me feel all happy inside…I seriously can’t describe the feeling of joy I get every time I think about this character and her series <3
Well, that deserves a reblog.

Oh wow. This is gorgeous~!
That’s so sexy it’s going on my main blog.
If DC ever paid me to do a Batman story it would look like this, and it would probably be about how Batman is pretty insane and can only convince teenagers to team up with him.
When your parents were being gunned down in an alleyway
she was learning, like, her fourth style of hand-to-hand combat.
What part of WARRIOR PRINCESS did you not understand???
I think I liked the Avengers one more, but this is still pretty cool.
WHY ARE THEY PERFECT ;~; -heroics
RIGHT? I have all the feelings on these two.
Bullet points because I’m lazy
- I love that Barda was willing to help Scott escape to Earth even before she herself was resolved to break away from Apokolips. When Scott asks her why she’s helping him she says:”Because I like to help fools!—because I couldn’t save Auralie! I don’t know!” This translates roughly into: “ROBOT NOT PROGRAMED TO FEEL BUT ROBOT FEELS.”
- I love the fact that they step outside of traditional gender roles with both humor and respect. So often in narratives where there is a ~gender role swap~ it’s played up as purely comedy and the character with traditionally feminine traits is mocked and made to seem weak. Barda and Scott are an excellent example of how to avoid this. Scott is shorter/less physically strong/more likely to be kidnapped* than Barda but he’s also the worlds greatest escape artist (suck it bruce,) a highly intelligent man, the survivor of extreme childhood trauma and a revolutionary. IMO they are one of the best examples of a “marriage of equals” in comics.
- One time Scott got turned into a noodle monster and the Barda brought him back to himself by threatening divorce. The idea was so horrific that Scott couldn’t help but return to his normal self.
- When Barda tells Scott about how someone tried to mug her his first reaction is to ask if the mugger is okay. This isn’t because he isn’t worried about his wife, but because he has total faith in the fact that she can care for herself.
- When she’s cold he lets her wear his cape.
- I have yet to encounter a story where Scott is shown as jealous of Barda’s power, or where he feels her strength makes him look emasculated. I’ve seen so many shows/read so many books where a man feels threatened of his wife’s power and the storyline supports these feelings. The “Women you should let your husband win sometimes so he knows he wears the pants in the family” story is one of my least favorites and these two avoid that like champs. Scott celebrates her strength and doesn’t mind calling himself her “little man.”
- A lot of time fanart shows Scott hugging all over Barda and swooning but the fact is that she’s just as wild about him as he is about her. These are two characters with extreme dedication and love for one another.
*It’s kind of his thing
So basically these two are the best thing ever and I need to read everything with them
I need to convert everyone to the church of “THE FREES AND DIBNYS ARE THE GREATEST COUPLES EVER”
I stand by my statement that my fiance is the Scott to my Barda. (Also the Wash to my Zoe.)
As far as attitude, hair and make-up go, this is totally my goal for Dinah.
I like little savage with her… fork?
