Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

This is like how Captain Marvel Junior can't say his own name?

"An Ape can say no to a man, but a man can never say no to an Ape."

but in truth it's more equatable to a lady changing her name for marriage.

You know if these suffixed 'girl' Super heroines chose their names when they were still almost children and felt compelled to express the change in their identity brought on by puberty...

Is Reed Richards a paedophile?

Sue Storm was 18 and he was 42 in the fantastic four #1.

Something like that.

But listen carefully to a woman about to be wed, complaining about changing her name on all her important paperwork, bills, credit cards, clubs and identifying documents, it's an expensive and pointless slog.

They do go on.

Brand identification.

Besides 90 percent of the people these "girls" meet are going to be punched in the face by these "girls" and after the fact, for these villains and assholes, what's going to leave a more humiliating stain in their memories, being beat up by a woman or being beaten up by a girl?
