My daughter loves comic books and she is IN love with the Marvel super hero movies. She is especially fascinated with Iron Man, which concerns me as she gets closer to her dating years because I hope she doesn’t end up falling for the bad boys like Tony Stark. Or maybe it’s Robert Downey, Jr., I’m really worried about.
But I digress.
Sadly, I haven’t been very successful in getting her interested in the more powerful women fantasy characters. I have the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer sitting next to the DVD player, yet I can’t seem to entice my 13-year-old. How do I drag her away from her Taylor Swift albums that are full of teen angst, longing, and “never, never, NEVER”?
Have you seen the PBS special on Wonder Woman? Maybe we need to call in the Black Widow? My teen did notice that she has to do the same things as all the guys, but without any special equipment,weapons or super powers!
