What I've found, so far, has been less than exciting. Wonderwoman is still around- and perhaps the strongest character. I found out about Power Girl, and her breasts that, in most animations, tend to scream breast reduction and pain. Although this action figure version of her isn't half bad. I've also learned that, despite the name, x-men have the most varied and unique cast of women leads. Although, honestly? I haven't read much on their backstory. Maybe I'll have to invest in comic books- purely for educational purposes, of course.
Hopefully, this generation of girls, growing up with the likes of Word Girl and Dora the Explorer will more readily embrace superheroines as reflections of their own selves, rather than leaving it to the guys.
