Wonder Women / Female Protagonists Panel at Wizard World



SUNDAY, JUNE 22, 2:00PM – 3:00PM

We couldn’t imagine our favorite comic book, TV show, or film without our beloved super heroines, however the journey for them has not been easy. Whether it’s cultural barriers or societal sexism, super women have had to fight more than just crime in order to survive. Come join author Genese Davis (The Holder’s Dominion, MMORPG.com, The Gamer In You,) Marv Wolfman (The New Teen Titans; DC Universe Online: Legends; Superman; Wonder Woman,) Eric Kieron (Producer – Animation; Film; Video Games; Novels,) and Meredith Moriarty (Roxy Dark and the Spyders; Once Upon a Time; Princeless) for this high-powered panel discussing the challenges and obstacles to creating relevant female protagonists in today’s male dominated industries. (ROOM 107)
