#PollMondays: Which of these super people would win in a game of Risk?

10 Jul

We’re rolling out a new thing on the blog. It began as a new thing on our Twitter account:  #PollMondays. People seemed to like it, so we’re going to do more of it!

The premise for today’s poll is simple:  if these super people sat down for a game of Risk, who do you think would win? To make things more interesting, we’ve taken out all of the obvious contenders for smarts and tactics, such as Batman, Professor X, Nick Fury, Brainiac, and basically anyone who can reliably see the future. Instead, we’re giving you big, beefy superheroes — known for their ability to punch other people in the face more than their ability to strategize (mostly).

Vote away!

#60. Wonder Woman (2017) w/Michi Trota — A Shoot the WISB Subcast

6 Jul

Intersectionality issues, forced romances, and origin stories, oh my! Julia, Trish, and Stina discuss the DCEUs only decent movie so far, Wonder Woman, with special guest, Michi Trota! This is an all woman review because we really wanted to get into what this film means to women. The team dives right into all of their problems with the movie, especially how lacking in women a film about Wonder Woman actually is (particularly women of color). But they also share their love for the movie and the character! Make sure you don’t miss a poem from Julia and the Wonder Woman comic run recommendations from Michi!
