My favouite fanzine (though it was professionally published) in the 80s was Amazing Heroes; and my favourite articles were the ' Hero Histories'. Didn't matter who they were, or where they were from, they were always a source of interest.
My recent Frankie Raye post was very much influenced by those articles, and it's something I would like to do more of - the only problem is who to do?
With that in mind, I've set up a little poll in the right-hand column. Vote for your top Bronze Age Heroine, and I'll write about her. I should say, I took a few liberties: The Cat and Tigra are essentially the same person, but very different heroines, and though Jean Grey was a heroine during the Silver Age, Phoenix was very much a Bronze Age creation,
|There's no rum in this punch! Nuff said!|
|This one says vote for me!|
|I was bald before it was beautiful, baby!|
|Yeah, blue-eyed Ben Grimm is the one for me!|
|This female fights back! OK?|
|Spider-Man? Spider-Man who?|
|Crotch shots weren't in that Marvel Monster makeover contract!|
|I am fire! I am life incarnate! I am so dead!|
|What's that you say? We're going down to the cellar?|
|I was teenage jailbait, but I've got a dragon!|
|Yeah, I can chew gum and walk at the same time. So what?|
