Superheroines through the decades have been far more multicultural than readers might expect. There were Senorita Rio and the Victory Girls in the 40s; Storm, Mantis, Talia al Ghul, Misty Knight, Psylocke, Ms. Marvel and a host of TV shows in the 70s; Jubilee, Katana, Karma, Kitty Pryde, Amanda Waller, and a Spider-Woman TV show in the 80s; Oracle and Martha Washington in the nineties. Today, there’s an explosion onscreen from Wonder Woman and Black Panther’s family to TV shows like Runaways, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, DC’s Super Hero Girls, and Agents of SHIELD. Comics like Faith, A-Force, America Chavez, Spider-Woman, Moon Girl, Silk, Ms. Marvel, Birds of Prey, and Squirrel Girl emphasize how these stories are always pushing the boundaries.
