Feminism Smash!!!

The pantheon of feminist superheroes seems to have added a new, and imposing, silhouette to its line-up. He’s male, thrives on anger, could throw a whale into the sun, and normally has trouble with words that contain more than two syllables. He’s FEMINIST HULK and he loves applying feminist concepts to his rage-heavy life. From his Twitter:

HULK LIKE HULK MUSCLES, NOT IN MACHO WAY, BUT TO DEFY CARTESIAN DUALITY THAT SEVER BODY FROM MIND. HULK FIND BODY’S WISDOM BEAUTIFUL.

Sometimes Feminist Hulk just gets mad, though:

HULK NOT AFRAID OF GLASS CEILING. HULK EAT GLASS FOR BREAKFAST.

Hulk as an embodiment of feminism is a great little ball of wonder, but why stop there? Marvel Comics hasn’t been shy about diving into universe-wide re-interpretations of its characters. We’ve seen them all as zombies…as apes…and even as Hulks. Maybe it’s time for a Marvel Feminists mini? Pretty please? Or maybe just some Feminist Deadpool and/or Feminist Galactus? I’m not even sure how to interpret that last one…


Chris Greenland will now be wondering all day whether there is a gender argument regarding eating a planet.
