I'm kind of saddened at how off the mark you seem to be seeing the message, Gail. I don't know about you, but in a HUGE number of places I go online, every time there's a female character who shows vulnerability, or who cries, or who isn't a total four-star badass, they're derided as being "awful, weak, and completely misogynistic". And hell, when normally strong female characters have moments when they need to cry, or be vulnerable, it's the same story.

gailsimone:

A “huge number of places you go online?”

What about in the actual media?

There’s no scarcity of women who cry or cower, I doubt there will be any time soon. I hardly think we need to start a fundraiser for the continued existence of those portrayals.

We are at a point where we have SOME women who may do those things, but are also strong and capable and self-actualized and choosing their own destinies. But for some people, ‘SOME’ characters is clearly a flood, and we need to consider not making every character like that.

Well, I say…where is this flood? Where are the female-led superhero movies? How many action dramas on television have female leads? How many adventure comics have predominantly female casts?

It’s getting better, inch by inch, but every week we hear some executive saying female action heroes can’t anchor a film, despite the notable successes.

My concern at this point is not making sure there are lots of female characters who cower or want a husband. That number is out there already and it’s been self-perpetuating for a hundred years.

My concern is changing the thinking that there is simply SUCH a massive surplus of ‘strong’ women that it’s actually a problem, somehow.

Because it clearly is not.

Nikita, Ep 4.06: “Cancelled” is a fitting series finale
Over the course of its four season run, Nikita has established itself as a supremely entertaining action series that was unafraid to kill off characters, keep dramatic tension high, and move through stories. Anchored by a strong lead performance from Maggie Q, the show developed from a fun distraction into a compelling series with fully fleshed out characters that often went off in unpredictable directions. All of this came down to this week’s series finale. Having previously defeated enemies such as Roan, Percy, Sergei Semak, Gogol, and Division, and spurred by the grief of Ryan’s death, the team takes on Amanda and MDK, in a fitting finale that serves to illustrate who Nikita really is.
It’s wonderful to see the final showdown between Nikita and Amanda focus on both their similarities and differences. Nikita’s fight against Percy was always more of a business-based decision on both their ends, as Nikita’s goal to take down Division clashed with Percy’s desire to hold onto and expand his power and influence. If it was someone else in Nikita or Percy’s place, the two individuals would not have had an issue with each other. The struggle between Nikita and Amanda, however, has always been more personal, and in many ways tied into the individual nature of the two. From the beginning, as the series has shown numerous times, including this week, Amanda has seen Nikita as very similar to herself, and has seen Nikita’s attacks on an Amanda-run Division as a fundamental betrayal on an emotional level. Much of Amanda’s fight against Nikita in the third season revolved around teaching Nikita a lesson in how to be more like Amanda, and while she may have a number of faults, she has been, by and large, a keen judge of character. Amanda hasn’t been wrong about the similar circumstances from which both of them rose; seemingly abandoned and tossed around, both of them are, at their very core, survivors and fighters.
