#Tied_Up_Tuesday folks! Yep, it's that time of the week! This week, I'm going to do something a little different! And this might be a reoccurring theme as well! This time around we are going to go over mainstream comic book #DiD. Yes, that's right! The 'legal' public comic book panels have some fantastic DiDs despite the pitchforks and the such. With that said, let's take a look at some of them, shall we?
How can I not start this without getting into Spider-Woman's moment/s. I don't have to go any farther than just saying that to me, that is the iconic #DiD moment of all comic books! Yes, Wonder Woman is one of the pioneers but without Spider-Woman, I may have a different contribution to the community altogether. I'll just leave it at that. All hail that awesome, contrived, confusing, and misleading chair time (and the moments that led up to it) Jessica Drew had!
The 90s! Ah yes, the 90s! Venom's weird phases and the glory of unhinged artwork! I loved it! And this scene with Anne Weying cemented her as one of my classic and unsung Marvel DiD. I commissioned a variant years later (COVER).
I was never the biggest Powergirl fan but I do appreciate moments like this. That's a lot of restraints and rightfully so--she's basically Superwoman. BUT! Her captor made a mistake!
Helena is one of those "Batgirl"-esque characters that usually gets a good moment or two. Here, being captured by orphans... is kind of demeaning. But this moment is good for a LOT of reasons.
So, yes. This week was all about canonical DiDs. And it might be a recurring thing. Every once in a while (once a month maybe?). Also, we'll try and end it with Empowered. None gets more DiD and acknowledges it wholeheartedly than Emp herself!
Until Next Time!
