All right Marvelers! It's time for another challenge!
What woman (real or fictional) is YOUR hero?
Check out mine:
Gail Simone is my hero!
Unless you pay really close attention to the credits page on comics, you probably don't know Gail Simone very well. But you're probably very familiar with her work. Deadpool, Secret Six, Birds of Prey, Welcome to Tranquility, and Red Sonja have all grown due to her strength and dedication as a writer.
Of course, she's not *just* an amazing writer.
She's been brave enough to speak out against industry double standards time and time again. And it hasn't always worked in her favor- she was dismissed from writing Batgirl until fans demanded that she return. Being outspoken isn't always rewarded in the comics industry, but she does it because it's necessary.
Her characters are complex and compelling.
All of them. Male, female, genderfluid. Every character she writes has amazing depth. Kudos to this amazing woman for all of her work!
