High school is over. So is normal.
Kim Hamilton’s life is perfect. The daughter in a family that should be put on a church fan, graduating from Wilbanks Academy with honors, and heading to Clark Atlanta on a full scholarship… So what is she missing?
Kim Hamilton’s life is boring. Until she dies - then things get interesting. There happens to be a supernatural war going on, and Kim finds herself drafted. Discovering several similarly powered individuals, some mysterious and some malevolent, Kim and her friends set out - from the streets of Atlanta to the skies above Annapolis - to discover what it means to be blessed, cursed, or maybe just…peculiar.
This book, the first in the Charismatic Chronicles, was written with the understanding that we are not cookie cutter humans, and we are glorious in all the ways AND shades we were made. What makes us stand apart is how we use what we were given. Not only is Kim a PoC, but several of her friends and fellow main characters are as well. Her world, while fantastic, is the reality that so many generations have lived with and is rarely represented in any type of media.
In the comic version, Puff happens to be a Hispanic bang baby partnered up with Coil. Static defeats her by mixing water into her body. This caused her to form into a “big” girl which halted her from using her powers.
In the Cartoon series however, she was portrayed as an African-American girl. Partnered with Onyx, they tried to become bounty hunters and capture Rubberband Man after he escaped from prison. They were then defeated by Static and since then, were made into villains.

Sistah Spooky feeling threatened by Empowered, based on her insecurity of her appearance, but mostly for the fact that Empowered resembles and reminded her of her childhood tormentors.

Riley and Ellie, The Last of Us: American Dreams #3
She’s not a superhero in the typical sense of the word, but anyone who’s looking forward to Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us should check out American Dreams when it hits shelves on April 24, 2013. The title features a young woman named Riley, one of the comic’s protagonists. In the story, Riley meets Ellie (the game’s protagonist) around the time both characters have to join the military or be left to fend for themselves outside or in the quarantine zone. Riley is described as “tough” and a “cool older girl” in contrast to Ellie’s inexperienced or “innocent” character. Riley wants to escape the quarantine zone and avoid the life of a soldier, so she and Ellie decide to leave and tough it in the post apocalyptic environment of their world.

Halle Berry | Catwoman
In 2004, Halle Berry starred in the worst Catwoman film to ever exist. She won the “Razzie" award for Worst actress for her part in the movie (which she showed up to, recieved and made a small speech; quote: ”First of all, I want to thank Warner Brothers. Thank you for putting me in a piece of shit, god-awful movie… It was just what my career needed.”)
The film also won a Razzie for Worst Screenplay, Worst Director and Film.
To save anyone time, if you haven’t seen it, the movie had nothing to do with Batman OR Catwoman. It was based all around Egyptian Cat mythology, cosmetic-based drug pushing and the transformation of a recently murdered woman named Patience into a cat-themed vigilante who wears an outfit that doesn’t make sense. (To me, anyway)
I personally had no idea what was going on when I was watching this and felt like I was watching some weird superhero rap music video.
I love Halle, but she should have just said NO.
