What do Adora, Luke Skywalker and I have in common? It isn't our skin, hair, sex or mettle, though I have often arrogantly asserted I could be the heroic type if I had to be.
I like powerful women in the real and fictional worlds. I was raised on Buffy and Xena before her. As I grew older and wiser and more religious I felt pangs of the heart when I realized that I wouldn't feel so great sharing female superheroes with my daughters because so often they are framed in the most brazen physically attractive way possible.
