I’ve had the privilege of seeing Marjorie Liu speak at a few panels the two years that I attended SDCC. She has been a writer for Marvel in such series as Dark Wolverine, Astonishing X-men, Black Widow, X-23 and NYX.
I am a sick and tired nerd. Male characters have dominated the action/sci-fi/fantasy genres for far too long. No more will women be in distress, cast as the "girlfriend" or made to wear tight leather pants.
Ladies! Raise up your swords, M16's, phaser guns and pens!
