And while the issue is still here, its getting better. I’m glad I live in an age where the whole Ghostbusters team can be women with a derpy hot dude as their secretary.
I really like that some of the most interesting characters in the Marvel universe are the women, like Shuri, and we’ve finally gotten past that whole “The worst thing a woman can be is infertile.” (yeah, well the worst a man can be is infantile, and that’s not stopped most of them.)
I need to do better in my writing too. Goes back to that whole Representation theme. I do plan on giving Mirith Hayden her own books; making her face the fact that she’s built her life out of trying to be perfect for a stupid boy and if he’s gone, then what’s left of her?
