What female superhero am I? Wonder Woman!
You’re an original. A champion of justice and able to keep up with the best of male superheros, you attribute your power to amazonian origins. You’re a powerful, independent woman, and you’re not afraid to show it.
Yay! Especially since the other choices were Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Starfire (whose first line of description is “Considered beautiful, even by superhero standards!”), Rogue, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, and (shudder) Witchblade.
Speaking of Wonder Woman, the next episode of Bones will feature the characters in costume for Halloween, and the lead dresses up as the Amazing Amazon. Based on the “next week” trailer from last week’s episode, she does do the spin, and there’s some competition with her boss, dressed up as Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer style).
This isn’t the show’s first comic-themed episode, by the way.
This week’s Straight Dope answers the question “Just read one of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman volumes entitled The Kindly Ones. I was taken aback when one character relates a disturbing variant of “Sleeping Beauty” described as the original version of the tale, from back before it got watered down. Is this true, or is the story something out of Neil Gaiman’s brilliant mind?” Apparently, yes, it’s true, but check out the link for the original telling.
