Heroine addiction

Oh dear, I can feel it coming on again. My obsession for lame female characters has struck again, and in the most unexpected place.

I winced along with everyone else when the first promo pics appeared showing her broken-backed T&A stance. I laughed along at her shiny, shiny plastic skin. I didn't even bother reading Battle for Bludhaven, but I may have to now. I'm sure I can pick it out of a bargain bin at the next comic fair. It was only when I leafed through Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters #2 that my interest was sparked.

Who am I talking about? Well the art in Uncle Sam may be a little heavily over-airbrushed with shadows, but there's only one female character in it, and she has a degree in quantum physics.

It's Stormy Knight, physicist and supermodel. And I'm aching to see her written in a way that would make me believe she really is the science nerd she claims to be. Even if it means designing gedanken in a thong.

You HAVE to read Battle for Bludhaven. She's the only normal-seeming person in the whole miniseries.

It's amazing.

You know, her parents had to have had an...odd sense of humor. Stormy Knight? Puleeeeze. It is even better that she has black hair. Now she's a DARK and Stormy Knight. Bwahaha! Sometimes I must kill myself.

You better be quick. I hear there's a queue forming.
