The most memorable moments for DC Comics' women voted on by you!
With so many interesting female comic characters and events at DC Comics, it can be hard to choose just one specific moment that can be defined as your "favorite." What is it about that moment that makes the story so interesting? Are the events that occurred in that moment what make it compelling to you, or is it the reaction of the character that followed the events that make it memorable?
Yesterday the DC Women Kicking Ass blog and Comic Vine asked our readers to participate in a poll that would determine, in your opinion, what is the most memorable moment for DC Comics' women. After receiving 1,500 votes in the 24 hour period, we have a winner. With 13% of the vote, the most memorable moment for the DC ladies, according to fans that voted, goes to Wonder Woman snapping Maxwell Lord's neck in Wonder Woman #219. This runner up moment was Supergirl's self sacrifice to save the world in Crisis on Infinite Earths #7 (12.2%) and third place goes to Kate Kane's resignation from West Point because of DADT in Detective Comics #859 (8.4%). It's safe to say that the top three moments were compelling in their own right, for different reasons. Kate Kane's resignation is symbolic of the current socio-political struggle between the LGBT community and the United States Military, and is a moment that speaks to many DC comics fans. Supergirl's sacrifice is that of the ultimate super-heroine; giving up her life and happiness for the sake of the world is hard to beat. Yet, the number one moment voted on by fans is the murder of Max Lord at the hands of Wonder Woman. Whether it be because the moment distinguished Diana from the other two founders of The Trinity, or because it was repeated and re-imagined in so many books after it was first published, it is your most memorable moment.
