Favorite Female Characters in Literature # 22: Tigra
Ahhh, Tigra. The character for which, perhaps more than any other character that will appear on this list, is most often depicted in images that conflict with safe search. She’s a beautiful cat girl in a bikini, and she was around before furries, so it’s okay to like her. Really… it’s okay. She’s also, sadly, the character whose history, for the main part, I deny the hell out of. Jesus… only the Wasp has gone through more shit storylines. Still… there’s a lot to love about the character… mostly her (when written well) independent spirit and her (when written well) sense of whimsy, and her underlying erotica, which, when written poorly, becomes a fountain of cretinous sex-fantasies. But when written well… when written as a woman rather than a premature ejaculation, she’s a fantastic character.
And now… since Tigra cosplay (which I whole-heartedly encourage, incidentally) can spill a little into… the strange, I want to provide a helpful guide on how to do Tigra cosplay correctly.
THE “FAVORITE” LIST SO FAR…
#25: Scarlet Witch
#24: Chance Falconer
——- DOWN BELOW IS JUST A REHASH OF WHY I’M DOING THIS LIST ———
I’ve been thinking about women, lately. Women characters in comics. Women creators in comics. Female characters in literature. And pretty girls riding around on bicycles or walking along the sidewalk, etc, etc. Because of this, I’ve decided to make An Entirely Useless List. Why is it entirely useless? Because it’s my top 25 female characters from comics and literature, and such lists change at whim and at a breakneck pace. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to quantify favorites… the term favorite is far too malleable. A list of my best friends from high school, for instance, would not include anyone with whom I’m currently in contact. Times change. Still… I’m making the list. Why? I suppose I just like thinking about women.
