Life is overflowing today so I am doing a quick blog just go keep it going and finish the challenge. The W has two kick-ass women head to head.
Colonel Wilma Deering, of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century Fame. She lacked a full blown personality but hearing the term Colonel in front of a woman’s name gave me a little thrill, like had we had really come along way in Buck Rogers universe.
Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch, is Magneto’s daughter in the X-men and twin to Quicksilver. She starts off in the evil camp as one of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (Ah, the familial obligations of the children of supervillians!) and then joins the Avengers and comes to the side of good. In addition to magic, she holds a mutant power, which is quite unusual–she controls probability. How cool is that?
Wai Lin, a James Bond Girl with rad martial arts skills, she actually kicked ass, not just stripped down as women in Bond movies are prone to do. The film: Tomorrow Never Dies.
Any other W’s welcome. And for those of you doing the A to Z Challenge, keep blogging. We can do it.
