Captain America: Patriotic, Sexy and…Female?

Captain America! The ultimate symbol of a patriotic, WW II era, American man—right? Not so fast, Bucky!

More and more at comic conventions, I see women creating female versions of superheroes. Personally, I think this is great (and strangely sexy), that women are claiming these characters as their own. On the downside, I suspect a lot of this also has to do with the fact that there aren’t enough female superheroes that women want to emulate.
