Female Comics Nerds Fight Sexism

Heather Freeman and Kylie Martonik are completely nerding out. In the back room of the Comic Book Shop on North Division in Spokane, their voices get progressively louder as they talk superhero films. The good ones, the bad ones, the so-so ones. “Look at the movies back in the day that were coming out: Spiderman was OK for back in the 2000s. But Fantastic Four sucked. Daredevil kinda sucked. Electra, Hulk — all those movies sucked,” Freeman, in a bright red Dr. Who shirt and black cat-eye glasses, argues, matter-of-factly. “The Halle Berry Catwoman was TERRIBLE,” Martonik, with short brown hair and sporting a black Transformers shirt, adds. “All those superhero movies that come out in the 2000-ish era were horrible. But now look at the really awesome movies that we have, like Avengers, Captain America, the Batman trilogy,” Freeman says, listing each one louder than the next/Leah Sottile, Inlander. More here.
