By Rachel Leishman on Fri,12:31

Unsung Heroines of Shonen: The Ballad of Mai Kujaku

By Princess Weekes on Fri,11:09
As much as I love anime, one of the things that frustrate me about shonen series is the treatment of their female “heroines”—if they even get enough to warrant that name. One of the most frustrating examples of this is Mai Kujaku from the anime and manga series Yu-Gi-Oh!

She-Ra is Going to be Empowering for Girls and Women Everywhere

By Rachel Leishman on Fri,11:02
Going into the She-Ra panel at NYCC, I was unaware of what the show was about to be. So it was surprising to find myself crying the minute I heard "For the honor of Greyskull" and I watched as Adora became the She-Ra those around me knew.

What Jimmy Kimmel Misses in the Discussion Around Louis C.K.’s Place in Comedy

By Vivian Kane on Fri,10:40
I think a lot of us hoped Kimmel–who has recently found himself at the center of so many political debates, taking on Republican and conservative oppression–is better than this. But maybe he isn't.

By Kate Gardner on Thu,5:52
In case we needed a reminder of the completely awful and cruel behavior of the Republican party currently, a North Carolina Republican leader shared a fake photo of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to mock her and imply that she was not attractive enough to be assaulted.

The Samsung Storm Trooper Vacuum Is Over $300 off in the Mary Sue Shop

By Diana Vilbert on Thu,5:12
Is there anything better than doing your chores without actually, you know, doing your chores? Nah. We’ve been obsessed with robot vacuums forever, and we didn’t think they could get any better. But they can and they have. Bring the power of the force to your floors with the Samsung POWERbot Star Wars Robot Vacuum. The theme is a plus, but even without it, it’s an amazing deal—46% off the regular price of $699.

Backlash to “Racebent” Casting Is Tellingly Selective

By Chelsea Jackson on Thu,4:55
We’ve been bird watching ever since DC announced it would bring us a Birds of Prey film. While the impending production has made some changes to the Birds of Prey comics that we’re accustomed too—after all, if we wanted to see a panel-by-panel iteration of a comic, we’d just ... reread the comics—some of the onscreen alterations appear to erase certain character details, particularly with Huntress, despite backlash focusing on another character altogether.

Please Don’t Doxx Anyone, Not Even Terrible Republican Senators

By Vivian Kane on Thu,2:57
Doxxing—the publishing of someone's personal information, such as phone numbers and home or work addresses—is a vile, dangerous thing. It's a tactic beloved by the likes of Gamergate, meant to intimidate and overwhelm, and potentially leave people vulnerable to physical harm. It shouldn't be done to anyone—not even the horrible Republican men of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

It's October, but at The Mary Sue it's Halloween month, which means that we spend all the days that aren't officially Halloween still celebrating.

So I want to share with you some of my favorite things to watch around Halloween time, and I asked my awesome TMS cohorts to do the same.

Chris Evans Wraps Shooting on Avengers 4 and Our Worrying Intensifies

By Dan Van Winkle on Thu,1:39
Avengers: Infinity War delivered a crushing blow to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and its fans, by ushering in the franchise's very own Empire Strikes Back moment, on an unprecedented scale. Our heroes were dealt a punishing blow, and the movie ended on quite a down note for everyone but Thanos. However, as sad as all that was, we know much of it is going to be undone in Avengers 4, but that doesn't mean the movie has no wounds of its own to inflict.
