Comics have never lacked for kick ass women, with Wonder Woman being an example of feminine beauty and strength. But Diana isn’t the only Amazon to stand tall. Artemis of Bana-Mighdall is a character with a rich history. Born into a seperate tribe of Amazons who migrated to Egypt, Artemis has been a rival and friend to Diana, and she deserves to share the spotlight.
The world of Batman is one of the most well known in popular culture, from his Rogue Gallery to his gadgets. There are people within it who walk the same path and there are those who fight against it. Red Hood is someone who exists somewhere in between. For the character spotlight today I’ll be focusing on Jason Todd and why he is the most human character I’ve ever encountered.
As this blog becomes more active I’ll be posting different reviews of comics and movies. To start off with I’d like to review one of my favourite animated movies, Batman: Under The Red Hood. Having come out in 2010, it became the highest rated direct-to-video Batman film until the release of the The Dark Knight Returns in 2012. Jason Todd is my favourite comic character, so it was great to see his story told faithfully and maturely in this film.
