Boss Chicks, Volume II; Sistah Sheroes: Misty Knight


Inspired by my last post, I'm going to go on and pay tribute to some badass sistah supersheroes.

Mercedes “Misty” Knight is a former cop for the NYPD who had to leave her profession after she lost her arm in a terrorist attack.  Misty’s arm is replaced with a bionic one created by Stark Industries, but it did not allow her to keep her job.  She and her friend Colleen became private investigators.  They are known as Daughters of the Dragon because of their martial arts skills and general ass-whupping abilities and frequently aid Heroes for Hire, a group put together by one of her lovers, Iron Fist.  But relationships are complicated and Misty doesn’t stay with Fist very long.  However, there are many other things that demand her attention.

There’s so much to like about Misty Knight.  She’s beautiful, brave 
and a total badass.  She and her bestie Colleen are down like four 
flat tires.  There are some new comics featuring the divine Miss 
Knight and I cannot wait to own them.  I’ve never heard of her 
before last year, and now I am going to make it my mission to purchase and read her comics and do more research on this boss 
chick.  And I won't stop there.  There are plenty of other sistah supersheroes that need more exposure. Misty is just the first.

  1. Get Daughers of the Dragon. You're gonna love it. Misty holds it down as does Colleen Wing.

    It's awesome to see two women of color kicking ass and taking names.
