Z is for Zorro

Tweet Well folks, we’ve reached the end of the series. Z is for Zorro! It took significantly longer than 26 weeks, but here we are. I’m a little bit more experienced, you’re a little bit more aware of the absurdity of many comic book characters- I’d say we both came out ahead. I’ll be starting […]

Lady Blackhawk is DC Comics’ crack WWII flying […]

I is for Iron Fist

Tweet I was gonna do DC’s JLA member Ice, but then I remembered that she’s really, really boring. So I looked around a bit. There aren’t very many cool female characters whose name start with “I”.
