From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in LUCY, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

This Female Thor thing was a thing waayyyy before you even realized.

My friend Adam Frazier posted this picture on his FB with a note about the new female Thor news.

"Marvel Comics announced a huge change to one of its iconic heroes, Thor, on Tuesday's episode of "The View." The hammer-wielding god of thunder will now be a woman in the comic series. You know who's SUPER-EXCITED about this news!? This girl...


And, because I had to, I went looking to see if I could find this helmet on Amazon. No luck, but I found some awesome stuff.

My thoughts on the reaction to the merger at The Mary Sue [rant/ponderation]

The editors over at The Mary Sue wrote up a post addressing some concerns readers have had about some of the recent changes to the site up to and including a recent merger. It's long, it's thoughtful and it's getting a LOT of comments.

I'd like to share my thoughts on that post and the reaction, but I do feel it's important to share this tweet so you know my take general take on this situation.

Okay, so, there's that part. The rest, well, I wanted to address certain comments and concerns and -- since I have my own blog and it's way easier than commenting to a bunch of posts on their site, I'm gonna do it here.

After the break. ::grin:: Cause I'm likely to be long winded.
