DC Comics Pays Tribute to the (Liberal) “Wonder Women of History”
In a new graphic novel, DC Comics is rolling out the ink and illustrations to pay tribute to 18 “real-world heroes” they’re referring to as the “Wonder Women of History.” But if you thought for a second that this would be a nice, non-partisan way to talk about the truly powerful women who have shaped politics and history…well, think again. A quick glance at the women who will be featured in the book shows that this is just another piece of leftist trash that should be left on the shelves to collect dust.
Don’t believe us? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Elizabeth Warren, and Rashida Tlaib are among the women to be immortalized in the comic.
From The Daily Wire:
The list of “Wonder Women of History” also includes Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, tennis star Serena Williams, Beyonce, and alternative comedian Tig Notaro, as well as a number of social justice activists. No conservative women were included.
“Beyoncé, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Serena Williams, and more will be spotlighted by DC as in the upcoming anthology ‘Wonder Women of History.’ Taking a cue from its popular superhero Wonder Woman, DC will spotlight 17 real-world heroes in the fields of science, social justice activism, politics, sports, and entertainment,” according to Games Radar.
“Wonder Woman has been an inspiration for decades, and while not everyone would choose her star-spangled outfit for themselves, her compassion and fairness are worthy of emulation,” DC’s website notes, according to Bounding Into Comics. The graphic novel features 17 separate stories –“tales of the real-world heroes who take up Diana’s mantle and work in the fields of science, social justice activism, diplomacy and more!”
Someone is going to have to explain to us exactly what Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib have done to…well, do anything! We could kind of understand the inclusion of Beyoncé and Serena Williams for their respective popularity in their fields. But Ginsburg? If anything, they should focus on Sandra Day O’Conner if this is supposed to be about groundbreaking women. We’re not saying that RBG is an insignificant figure in American history, but her importance these days is directly tied to the left’s hopes that she’ll merely stay alive long enough for a Democratic president to replace her. Let’s not get it twisted.
Tig Notaro? Elizabeth Warren? Please.
We assume that DC will successfully sell at least 18 copies of this book. Beyond that? We’re not so sure. Who really wants to shell out their hard-earned money for this kind of propaganda?
