Call it a need to cater to the female audience of comics or be it because of the era of feminism, whatever may be the reason for these Genderswaps, some of them are really cool, while some, not so great.

Though Jane foster was fighting cancer, as she was a step smaller to death after all. What’s overwhelming is that she fought numerous enemies like absorbing man, Silver Samurai, the Accursed and the list doesn’t end. She took over Thor’s mantle and bonds with the hammer Mjolnir when Thor was no more “worthy enough”. One could never stop admiring the goddess of thunder for her above ordinary abilities!

Undoubtedly no one has any doubts about the acting calibre of Tilda Swinton but still taking such a major decisions as casting her as the ancient one in the famous Doctor Strange film was a bit of a stretch even though many people gave their positive response to this as they like how female characters were being given more prominent roles, many still differed with this opinion as they wanted such a pivotal role to be true to the comics.
Kate Kane made her debut in “52” in 2006. So far there is no one close to her investigative capacities, this strength often offers her instances where she has performed better than Batman himself. Her utility belt provides her with the courage to become the protector of the Gotham city, though a self-destructive one. Her love for Gotham developed while her family was moving from town to town as her father served the army.
Hawkgirl is the female version of Hawkman. This has to be a good betrayal.

During the invasion, Hawkgirl and Hawkman have a change of heart and fight alongside the Justice League.
Even though the comics tried their best to nullify this arc but they never could repair the damage done by Hal Jordan’s doing. Jordan during his time in the Corps did a lot of things, these got him a lot of fans. One such fan was an alien schoolgirl, who became his girlfriend too.
