You take that back right now! I will not have you even imply that here! :D The JSA rules!

All kidding aside, there are only 2 or 3 females I'd prefer to see before Jay. There are several I think NEED to be made sooner rather than later, but only Huntress and Vixen would come before Jay. The rest would come after him in my opinion.

That may have been a bit of hyperbole on my part, but I think you get the gist. :wink:

I like the idea of an all female bracket, or perhaps two - one for the good girls and one for the bad...

Just make sure Tina and Copper from the Metal Men are in the mix... :wink:

I like everyone's suggestions so far, but I'd like to add one of my own. An all women's bracket. More severely underrepresented than any rogues gallery, are the lovely ladies of DC. While I know a complete wave of female characters wouldn't be a retail success, it would certainly go over well with collectors. More realistically though, I just want Mattel to have no less than 2 per wave regardless of "theme". As much as I'd love to see Jay Garrick, There's at least 10 ladies I'd like to see before him.


I'm a callin' you out, Cal!

Name 'em:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10

:twisted:

Let me get this straight.

You want Black Orchard, a flash in the pan late 70's character, before a founding member of the JSA whose been around for over 60 years?

:evil:

I'd take Huntress, Mera, and Poison Ivy first. That's it.

I guess for me, I'd want the female characters that haven't been made yet. Especially given their track record on this. Variants or alternate costumes should come AFTER the new characters.

1. Huntress
2. Vixen
3. Poison Ivy
4. Elastigirl
5. Mera
6. Liberty Belle
7. Oracle
8. Phantom Lady
9. Fire
10. Ice
11. Jade
12. Wonder Girl (Cassie)

And only the first three would rank higher than Jay Garrick for me (I knew there was another I forgot lol). I just wouldn't want to risk that I might never see some of the new characters because they spent one of the few slots they DO use on females on an alternate costume. I wouldn't mind the rest on Fly's list, but they wouldn't be priorities over any of the ones above. Just my two cents.

Huntress and Poison Ivy are the only two above Jay for me. I think we're all forgetting another glaring speedster omission though. I think you could argue that Wally is more of a missing figure in this line than even Jay.

Wow. I love that my seemingly innocuous statement got some good dialogue going. I really love Ryan's list of lovely ladies (don't act like you don't love alliteration). My list almost mirrors his, only subbing in a few ladies that haven't been done yet, and leaving most of the costume variations for later. In order:

1 Huntress (modern)
2 Vixen
3 Poison Ivy (classic)
4 Dawnstar
5 Mera
6 Phantom Lady
7 Oracle
8 Jade
9 Liberty Belle
10 Dove (Dawn Granger)
11 Hawk (Holly Granger)
12 Steel (Natasha Irons)
13 Zatanna (Perez costume)
14 Fire
15 Ice
16 Arisia
17 Lady Blackhawk
18 Phantom Girl
19 Roulette
20 Supergirl (Bronze Age)
21 Dream Girl
22 Catwoman (Silver Age)
23 Elasti-girl
24 Granny Goodness
25 Triplicate Girl

I would really only want the top 5 before we got to Jay though.

Black Orchid is my absolute #1 want. In any form. In any format.

And now that Sideshow is working with DC....

Man, I can't wait (not that I have any delusion that it will actually happen mind you ...)

Actually, I'd love to see this too. Although I always wanted her in JLU form...

Dawnstar before Mera? :shock:

For shame, Cal. For shame. :evil:
