Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl by Mad-Man-with-a-Pen
Jenn from Dangerous Ladies @ DA
I had been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Outlining why I enjoy certain characters and who better to start out with than my favorite superheroine, Supergirl.
I feel slightly bad that I can't recall when I first learned of Supergirl's existence. After much thinking (and head pounding) my best guess is it was with the Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost. Now before I was a Supergirl fan I was (still am but as I say, Kara is easier on the eyes lol) a Superman fan. I know people call him boring, a boy scout, but Superman is the archetype superhero. Personally, I like the idea of an absolute good guy hero so Supes always will be one of my favorite heroes. So as a much younger Mad Man (minus my pen though) I watched STAS and fed my growing love of the DCAU. Then we get to Little Girl Lost and I meet Supergirl.
We the fans of Super Heroines from the DC Universe lay down notice that we like our Heroine as they were created, and not re-invented, re-imagined, and rebooted.
The mission of this group is to restore the origins, and ideas of the creator and not reform them into a weird amalgamation of what they were. We are not interested in their lives to be serialized like a television drama, nor do we like to see their characters changed into someone foreign to every thing they stand for. Their uniforms will reflect the same love and care that their creator gave to them without the unnecessary Political correctness of modern day society.
Our heroines are true warriors, and fight for justice, and good. They are not petty, they would no sooner take a dollar for what they do as soon as take anyone's life. They are not above the law and they are Super Heroines, not dolls in spandex. This group is for these fans. Fans of the true DC Heroines with out the dark bight of being written off or a sexual display in the comics. If you are truly a fan, I invite you to join, mind you we are not a fan-fiction group, we are a fan archival group.
We want the fan to remember the origins of these characters and not skew what made them the icons they were. So, to be called sexist to have Powergirls original uniform, yet the fact is it was her uniform for 30 something years. Changing it now would amount to a double standard like putting pants and Jacket on Wonder Woman (which noted also came to an end).
This group is 100% about the Heroine, but Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, etc may appear as well. We cover the Golden Age, Silver, and Bronze age as well. Post Crisis characters are welcomed under the same doctrine of keeping their original creators intent.
As for the Oracle, I will accept her as well as the Killing Joke was probably the most historic stories told. Sad fact that DC found away to even eliminate such a unique and interesting character, is yet another reason we made this group.

All literature must keep the faith and vision of the creator. No overblown BDSM Bondage fest with Wonder Woman. If that's all you have to offer then this group is not for you.
* I state this with the understanding we want to see our Heroines in Action not some twisted 1940's comic revisted....KEEP IT REAL!
Pretty basically we have two memberships. Your either a writer on an artist. Now if you are both, you have your choice as which is your stronger suit.
Being a Heroine Prime writer is a third option. The First Issue has been handed out to Wonder Woman, which that writer has their responsibility to. All Heroine Prime Literature must be approved by the Founder or C0-Founder as for the story, Characters, and content of the story. Once approved that writer/artist will have permission to post in the Heroine Prime Folders for literature.
Stories will scrutinize for obsessive violence, language, and behavior and or actions that do not befit said heroine. Lets try to keep this writing better then what they put out now, a fade to back does more wonders then descriptive violence, blood letting, and gore.
Am I asking the impossible? Not at all as the mission statement says, I just want the Heroines we truly know and love.
As for Artist, to start the Folders are few, but pretty telling. Understand this is not a showcase for Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn. So don't be surprised when your rejected. But on the off chance that this is not to be I made a Villain Prime Folder so we will HAVE NO MISTAKES.
I was going to create a folder for every heroine but this is a long way from a super group, and that's a lot of Folders to make.
