Thumbnail: Medusa has the Most Amazing Hair in Comics

Hair often plays a defining role in the presentation of female characters in superhero comics, from Jean Grey’s foreshadowing flame-red hair, to Storm’s hair-centric transformation into a street-fighting badass. In this is probably because women are expected to have more hair options; it may also owe something to how these characters are often designed to look like supermodels, with very similar facial design, so that their hair is the easiest way to tell them apart. Put Emma Frost and Dazzler in the same costume (as Chris Bachalo has done) and you may have no idea who's who.

This can be a little problematic, but it actually also gives Marvel a strange way to set its prospective next big-budget franchise apart --- because if there's one thing Jack Kirby taught us, it's that Medusa, Queen of the Inhumans, has amazing hair.

Marvel Unveils ‘A-Force’, The All-Female Avengers, But Not On ‘The View’

AFORCE_001-hed

Marvel promised a "forceful" announcement on ABC's daytime talk show The View today, and the entire world was ready for a Secret Wars/Star Wars crossover comic that would pit Jar-Jar Binks against Adam The X-Treme (or something), and then... nothing. There was no Star Wars announcement. There was no announcement of any kind; it got bumped off the show. Still, someone at Marvel has hopefully learned an important lesson about not using the word 'force' to promote things that don't involve Star Wars.

What Marvel did announce today was a new Secret Wars tie-in that is legitimately exciting in its own right, just sadly overshadowed by the Star Wars announcement that never was and the epic DC announcement that kicked off the day. The real announcement, unveiled through various outlets, is a new all-female Avengers book from writers G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett, and artist Jorge Molina, called A-Force.

‘My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic’ and ‘Super Best Friends Forever’ Creator Lauren Faust Will Direct An Animated Movie About Medusa

Ever since Lauren Faust, the artist and animator who developed My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic for television and ended up creating one of the biggest crossover hits in the last five years of pop culture, I've been wondering what her next big project would be. For a while, I was hoping that Super Best Friends Forever -- her take on Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Girl for Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Animation's DC Nation block -- was going to be expanded into a full series (and I still do), but it looks like she's taken on another big project that'll keep her busy for a while.

Accorrding to The Wrap, Faust has signed on to direct Medusa for Sony Pictures Animation, doing a comedic take on the Greek mythological figure.
