Eliana Dockterman, Marvel Comics Writers Explain Why They’re Making Thor a Woman (Time Magazine, July 15, 2014).
I find all these glimpses into the world of comic books (and their connection to movies and televisions) fascinating. I know it’s Marvel and not DC Comics/Green Arrow specific, but the industry is the industry, and with DC making the announcement of changing the Green Arrow in October (with #35) to now include Felicity Smoak…. I am curious and intrigued.
The previous Times article I shared last week talked a lot about the realities of the struggles going on in the comic book world, readership, etc., and I have to say, if DC Comics does it right when they reboot the Green Arrow this October (#35, which is supposedly also bringing in Arrow tv show characters like Felicity Smoak) and they back it up with meaningful content that treats female characters, like Felicity, was an equal hand in development, story function, etc. I’m already ready to subscribe. I’ll be checking it out. It will be the first comic book I buy/subscribe to and it will be because of the inclusion of a strong, smart, important to the actual plot female character. And if they venture into the Olicity relationship? Yeah. Totally there.
