Panel Description: Why does the "exceptional" almost always have to be the "exception" as well? The "everyman" hero is a tried-and-true trope. "Everywoman"? Apparently nonexistent. Fiction, particularly genre fiction, often challenges the status quo. Why not when it comes to gender roles? ("Kick-ass" can be literal, but doesn't have to be so limited. Dr. Beverly Crusher and Kai Opaka Sulan count every bit as much as Captain Kira Nerys. Jessica Fletcher and Miss Marple count as much as Jamie Sommers and Wonder Woman.)
