You are a silly billy. My cartoon is not blasphemous, I doubt it's racist, but it's definitely not American

Have you ever noticed how a large number of action heroines and superheroines are Caucasian?

That's extremely racist and turn-offish. It is like the people who create these characters ASSUME non-whites don't read comics or watch movies or play video games.


FIXED.

Do you people now how to read???

The fact that a lot of action heroines and superheroines are Caucasian is extremely racist and turn-offish.

@JGoldman10,
you realize of course that changing put-offish to turn-offish really doesn't change the gist of the statement one bit

as for the comment, i figure the percentage of non white characters in comic books reflects the percentage of non white folks i see in day to day life, i suppose depending on where you live results might vary

some non caucasian super heroines

from the New Mutants

Karma (Xi'an Coy Manh), a 19-year-old Vietnamese girl and the team's original leader, who could mentally possess other people's bodies.

Psyche (Danielle Moonstar, also called Mirage and Moonstar), a Cheyenne and eventual co-leader after Karma's "death," who could create visual empathic three-dimensional illusions.

Wind Dancer (Sofia Mantega) (Venezuela), the other co-leader, who can create winds, fly via said winds, and eavesdrop over distances by conducting air vibrations.

Surge (Noriko Ashida) (Japan), who absorbs electricity which she can release as blasts, or use for super-speed, but requires mechanical gauntlets to prevent overcharge.

Dust (real name Sooraya Qadir) Born in Afghanistan, Sooraya is a mutant with the ability to transform her body into a malleable cloud of dust.

Armor (Hisako Ichiki) is a mutant Japanese teenager who can generate colorful psionic body armor that grants her superhuman strength and durability.

from Generation X

M (Monet St. Croix), a "perfect" young woman born into a rich family from Monaco who could fly, possessed super strength and had telepathic abilities. Her arrogant manner was an annoyance to her teammates and her habit of going into deep trances or fugue states when deep in thought was a mystery to her teachers. Mysteries surrounding the St. Croix family would play a big part in the series.

Jubilee (Jubilation Lee), a Chinese-American "mall rat" who could produce explosive energy. Jubilee had been a junior member of the X-Men in the early 1990s.

the New Mutants and Gen X almost always had at least two non caucasian female characters in the groups for the last 30 years

Action heroines are "normal" so what action heroines exist in comics that aren't trashy or slutty?

@izzythepush,
ACTION HEROINE. NORMAL FEMALE PERSON THAT FIGHTS EVIL. DOESN"T WEAR A SPECIAL COSTUME OR HAS EXTRAORDINARY HEORIC ATTRIBUTES.

WHAT FEMALE CHARACTERS IN COMICS FIT THIS DESCRIPTION? All the characters you and others listed are superheroines.

@JGoldman10,
What about these positive role models? They are really good. I'm sure the one in a dress is a heroine.

You people keep listing SUPERheroines. I don't want superheroines.

I looked at a list of action heroines - or female action heroines on wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_female_action_heroes
and found:

Uhura from Star Trek
Kira Nerys and Jadzia Dax from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Kathryn Janeway and Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Voyager

Deanna Troi from Star Trek Next Generation isn't on that list but she would count.


These characters would count - they are sci-fi action heroines, NOT superheriones. They have appeared in comic book form:

These characters are always moving around, which certainly makes them action figures. Jerry Falwell thinks Tinky Winky must be gay because she carries a purse and is purple, but I simply think it means she's female, so she must be an action figure heroine. Here they are in action.

The problem here is when people think comic book action heroines, or comic book female action heroes, they automatically think SUPERheroines. The superhero genre is widely popular, bt NOT everything in comics revloves around superheroes or superheroines.

What are some FEMALE ACTION HEROINES that are popular THAT ARE NOT SUPERHEROINES? And AREN'T TRAMPY or SLUTTY-looking?

Lara Croft, Danger Girl and Tank Girl were popular comic book heroines:

http://virtualneko.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/tank-girl-image_1.jpg

But all these characters were too SLUTTY and TRAMPY.

What are some comic book action heroines that were normal, and were more modest?

They only one I can think of, other than the examples from Star Trek is Annie:

Lara Croft just wore short shorts like 90% of the girls you see on the street today. I suspect they would, deservedly, kick your ass if you called them slutty. They would say, rightly, that you have a dirty mind.

Lara knew damned well if you wanted to be an action heroine, it was absolutely imperative your arms and legs be free to move, and that meant shorts had to be SHORT. It was essentially impossible to be an action hero or heroine before someone invented Spandex.

You are one sick puppy, JG.

JGoldman's conception of appropriately modest dress for female action heroes (calling them heroines is sexist, and so 1940s, JG)

@MontereyJack,
Lara Croft IS SLUTTY and TRAMPY. That pic I posted was one of the FEW fairly modest pics I could find of her.
