24 person fight? Isn't that a little ridiculous?

I take that back...
From ComicVine:
"One day it occurred to Gail Simone, a comic book writer, that women in comics are so commonly misused to define a story when one of her favorite female character was killed off. She decided to call this term "Women in Refrigerators," after a panel in the Green Lantern #54 (1994) comic book, in which the Kyle Rayner comes home to his apartment and discovers that his girlfriend, Alex DeWitt, was killed by a villain named Major Force, and then stuffed in a refrigerator. Gail says that she realizes that some that are on the list have been revived already, but the question remains why they had to suffer in the first place."

Still a plot device, in many cases used to show how bad villain is, or empathy for the hero, but it pretty much is anytime a woman is mis-used.
Now, I have a better understanding. KillerZ wins.

It's a plot device. Killed doesn't necessarily mean you're on the list, Calvin hit it on the head with this.

 Hawkingbird's right, Women in Refrigerators is a list of female characters who are "used" in the plots being tortured or killed to to make us feel sorry for the male superhero and/or to show us how bad the villan really is.

It may say killed on the site, but it's not meant in a way where every woman that gets hurt or dies is an example of WiR

I'd love to have any of them as Batman; however, some more than others.... i.e. Dick and Jason, moreso Dick.

I've noticed, while I'm in my office, at work in the morning, no one is really on.
Just wondering, what time does everyone here wake up?

I wake up every weekday between 7:30am-8:30am.
Weekends between 9:00am-10:00am
