The brave hero. The wicked villain. These archetypes, and the tales of their struggles, lie at the heart of the comic book medium, providing the basis for many of our favorite stories. While some may scoff at these aspirational stories, we know that they can be empowering, uplifting, and even inspiring. That's often especially true when the hero at the heart of the story is a woman.

When women slay monsters, the stories are never just about protecting the kingdom and preserving the status quo. When women slay monsters, they challenge their own oppression, they overturn expectations, and they seize control of the future. When women slay monsters, they change the world. These are some of our favorite comic book stories that celebrate that idea.

bravestwarriorscapreview-main

Bodysnatching bad guys are traditionally depicted as germs, viruses, bugs, worms and other less-than-lovely corruptors. In Ryan Pequin and colorist Mirka Andolfo's Bravest Warriors #5 backup, "Cute Calamity," however, the team may be up against a much more cuddly threat when the huge-hearted Wallow adopts a pet of unknown alien origins...

bravestwarriors04capreview-main

One of my favorite pieces of tech from Bravest Warriors is the team's Holo-John, a Danger Room-meets-Holodeck-meets-bathroom where anything is possible.
