Princess Weekes, Assistant Editor of The Mary Sue, will take a Black Widow dive into the history of female comic book/superhero movies starting with Jane Fonda's Barbarella before going into Wonder Woman and our hopes with Captain Marvel. The show will explore the common tropes in these films through a feminist, pop culture lens as well as why it took so long to get these movies done and done right. Plus representation issues (why is Storm still not done right guys?). As always, the show is guaranteed to bring a fresh perspective and a few side splitting laughs while promoting a healthy camaraderie among attendees.

Donald Trump Does This to Himself


By Dan Van Winkle on Thu,10:43

The most recent, most disgusting example is his blatant lie this morning that a new, much higher hurricane Maria death toll for Puerto Rico is a Democrat plot against him.
