So much potential for hilarious captions. “OBEY the pussy.” “What exactly is Amazon ‘flower arranging’?”
AHHHAhhahaha AHhahahahahahahahahaha ahahhhhahahaha.
Can’t. Breathe. Laughing. Too. Hard.
Phew! Okay, lemme collect my thoughts…
So what’s the deal? Is the budget on the show so low that they had to use www.halloweenexpress.com for the costume??? Was real metal too expensive so they had to go with gold-colored plastic? And was there fire sale at the pleather outlet??
Actually, now that I think about, a much better question is: Why does DC Entertainment hate its female characters SO much???
Wait… I’m confused. Is this the cover to Wonder Woman #608 or a still image from some sort of fetishistic P.O.V. porno?
Last summer DC Comics and Converse announced a line of sneakers based on comic characters including Batman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman.
The Wonder Woman sneakers are now available in the UK with shipment available to the US. They’ll set you back about $100.
And they look even more awesome then they appeared when first announced.
I’m pretty sure the message DC Comics is trying to send with these is: “IF YOU EVER WANTED TO WALK ALL OVER WONDER WOMAN (LIKE WE DO), NOW’S YOUR CHANCE!!!”
The MAC Wonder Woman make-up is a hit. Some pieces are sold out and there’s a rabid after market on eBay. What does it tell us? I believe it speaks to how iconic Wonder Woman is. But I also believe it says there is an audience for female superheroes that isn’t being tapped into. Huge surprise. Really.
But I think DC missed the boat (or in this case the invisible jet) in reaching out to the customers who bought the make-up to put a comic or in their hand or to at least give them a chance to download some comics from the DC store. Warner Bros. hired a new VP of Publicity for DC last week. Perhaps Courtney Simmons will bring new thinking there.
But now that MAC is a hit, what other character cross-promotions could DC do? Here’s a few, mostly in snarky fun, but you never know …
I understand this is a parody post, and in that respect, I appreciate it and think it’s worth reading. But I also think it underscores how ridiculously male-oriented DC Comics is with all their licensing efforts. I mean, we know they make Wonder Woman makeup and panties, but beyond that… uhhhh not much. So DC Comics’ female characters (and by female characters, I mean Wonder Woman) are used on distinctly female-focused products or nothing at all. But DC’s male characters are on everything from steering wheel covers to Band-Aids.
For example, what if I wanted to buy a men’s shirt with the Wonder Woman logo on it? Slim pickings.
And that’s great, isn’t it? It’s a DC Man’s world, baby.
