Super heroine a flop?

Yesterday I talked about the most popular baby names in 2009 in New South Wales in Australia. I read another wrap up talking about some of the biggest flops in movies. The website said Catwoman by Halle Berry was one of the box office disasters.

It concluded rather harshly that movies with superheroines wouldn't sell.

I for one don't agree. I like to read stories with a strong heroine. And I have created stories with superheroine.

For example in my first novel In Quest of Theta Magic, Elana Bailey has eagle sight and can see many times farther than human.

In my latest novel Really Angelic, Elizabeth is a special kind of guardian angel.

But both of them manage to find their love in the novels. Perhaps Catwoman needs a happily ever after to make it works.

  1. I agree with you. I didn’t see Cat Woman so I don’t know why it failed, but I don’t believe it’s because the heroine was a woman - maybe it was because she was a cat!)

  2. Haha, Jane, now you may have offended all the cat lovers in the world...
