A look through the nerdy lens

If you follow me you know I love the New Warriors and Aracely (AKA Hummingbird) is one of my favorite characters at Marvel right now. Well in one issue she wanted to try and lift Thor’s hammer, so I got Marcus To, artist of New Warriors and all around really cool guy, to draw her wearing Thor’s helmet. It was his idea to make the helmet really big on her and it’s an adorable idea, it came out so cute.

FIVE THIRTY EIGHT DIGS INTO DEMOGRAPHICS OF SUPERHEROES, FINDS THEY’RE STILL OVERWHELMINGLY MEN
By Matt D. Wilson
Here’s the good news: According to some recent research by FiveThirtyEight.com, the website that applies data to just about everything — most notably, US elections — the ratio of female to male characters in mainstream superhero comics is improving, and more LGBT characters are showing up in Marvel and DC’s pages.
That said, the numbers still aren’t great. “Female characters make up only 30.9 percent of the DC universe and 30.6 percent of the Marvel universe,” the site’s report states. In a world where women are 51 percent of all people, that’s not so representative.
Also of interest: Female comic characters tend to be neutral or good far more than they’re evil. “Bad-aligned men alone outnumbered all women combined,” the report states.

Why isn’t X-23’s Codename: Honey Badger?

At the very least because she’s smaller than her “Dad.”

Because it sounds so nice and fluffy to someone who doesn’t know the awesomeness of the Honey Badger. 

But isn’t that Laura’s thing though?  Opponents that don’t know her automatically see a little girl/tiny woman and are like, “Whatevs.  I got this.”  And then her claws come out and she ruins their entire lives!

Fair Point!

I can imagine that becoming her nickname among the other New X-Men. It probably was Santo’s idea.
