'Powerpuff Girls' Goes Undeniably Feminist, Beats Up Sexist Lumberjack

Posted By on Fri, Feb 12, 2016 at 3:00 PM


Like most women in their mid-20s, I've got a soft spot for the Powerpuff Girls. Those flying children were tough, cute and complete badasses. Their villains were ridiculous and ruthless. They exploded into existence because The Professor was an idiot who didn't understand spacial relationships. I couldn't get enough.

I was obviously delighted when I found out Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup would once again be using their Ultra Super Powers to fight the forces of evil. We don't yet have a release date, but we do have a preview of Buttercup losing her damn mind when a lumberjack bent on getting Townsville back to its "manly roots" tells her to "go play with her dollies, princess."

And once again, the day is saved...
