Bam! Pow!
Salute to Superheroines! 

Batgirl With the Hair-Pull!

The Ultimate Matchup

How many boys discovered manhood thanks to Wonder Woman and her fellow   superheroines, along with their super-villainess opponents? That's because, in addition to super powers, they also possessed great beauty, enormous breasts and sensational hair. We bring you some of our favorites. The focus is on the female-on-female encounters with, of course, a special emphasis on hair-pulling.

We've gone into some of the comics to feature entire fight scenes
-- such as the two above -- just click and enjoy!

Yvonne Craig Began It All

It was back in 1967, and the "Batman" TV series needed a female character to spice it up. Thus was created Batgirl -- the secret identity for Barbara Gordon -- starring professional dancer Yvonne Craig in an impossibly skin-tight outfit and long red hair. Like Supergirl, Batgirl struggled for respect, eventualy getting written out after Crisis. But she, too, has enjoyed several comebacks.

Superman's Cousin, the Maid of No Respect 

Though Supergirl has always played second fiddle to her more famous relative, she's a star in her own right. And we've got so many of her super-catfights, that -- like Wonder Woman -- she gets her own page!

Just Change It to `Woman'

Spider-Woman was created as copyright protection. Marvel, relying on the success of Spider-Man, didn't want someone to steal the idea. She's gone through several incarnations over the years, though has been underused, in our opinion.

A Nod to Feminism

Yep, another female character created off the success of a male superhero, in this case Captain Marvel. At least Marvel was a cultural leader, first using the term "Ms." in 1968, several years before Ms. magazine was founded. After that early guest appearance, Ms. Marvel -- the super identity of Carol Danvers -- got her own series in 1977, and was a mainstay of the Avengers. And she had the last laugh, when she was promoted to Captain Marvel!

Don't Screw With Lois

Superman's main squeeze, Lois Lane was a tough cookie herself. She got into a surprising number of catfights over the years. Predictably, most of them stem from Lois's jealous defense of her super prize. She also tangles with the likes of Wonder Woman and Catwoman. We're impressed.

Femme Fatales and Lady Dicks

Superheroines weren't the only women mixing it up in the world of comics. One of the popular American genres in the 1940s and '50s was crime comics . These stories told with a "moral" that supposedly redeemed them, but it was the lurid depictions of crime and sex that sold. It was only a matter of time before some clever guy said, "Hey, how about catfights?" The idea caught on.
