    Great list! I would also include the recent Ms. Marvel in here. I recommended it to a colleague of my husband for his daughter who doesn’t see a lot of positive representations of brown people in the media and was so blown away by how much the both loved it.

    Yay! I love this compilation! :] I’ve never heard of any of them (sigh), but Rapunzel’s Revenge sounds rather awesome (yay for badassery), and Honor Girl sounds really interesting!

    My comics pull list is pretty much “Awesome comics starring butt-kicking ladies, plus some Batman,” so I love what you’ve got on your list here! So many great titles! I would also recommend:

    Ms. Marvel (worth mentioning over and over because it’s so good)
    Captain Marvel (the Carol Danvers version)
    Unbeatable Squirrel Girl
    Goldie Vance
    Giant Days
    Mockingbird
    Legend of Wonder Woman
    Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman
    Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy (best team up ever since both are on this list!)
    A-Force
    DC Bombshells
    Adventures of Superhero Girl
    Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat
    Jonesy
    Nutmeg
    Paper Girls
    Spider-Gwen
    Takio

    I could probably think of tons more given time, but this list seems like a good starting place :-)
