A BANK-- FOR THE MAMMARIES, PART 4

The next set in my own list of formidable female figurations comes from my companion blog, AMAZONS ASCENDANT. Of the "top 50 female/male fights in comics" that I listed, only fourteen hailed from DC Comics. Of those fourteen, I count out six as not being quite significant enough to be included in a list judged on historical significance.

Here be the eight who made the cut:

Cassandra Cain's battle with Batman in BATGIRL #50

Supergirl's attempt to find 50 ways to make your lover leave you alone, from SUPERGIRL #15 (current series)

Wonder Woman's fight with Superman in JLA #143

Golden Glider's dastardly attempt to kill Flash's wife and parents in FLASH #257

Black Canary's kung-fu battle with Rabbit in BIRDS OF PREY

Star Sapphire's third battle with Green Lantern, in which she forces him to pledge his troth to her (that's the "if he loses he wins" part)

The (brainwashed) Girl Legionnaires kicking the collective ass of the Boy Legionnaires

In her first appearance, Knockout scoring a TKO on the New Superboy

As the hooker said one Saturday evening, "more to come."
